Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have been confused about my internet connection lately. My ISP is Qwest DSL and I have friends that have the exact same connection as I do. Now when I'm trying to play an online game using a wired connection on the xbox360, I seem to still be experiencing some horrible latency issues. I have also found that my wireless connection is actually as good as my wired. I thought that it could be because my ethernet cable is damaged, but I checked and it's fine. I need some help trying to understand why my wired connection has some bad latency issues.

When you are playing with a friend and they are hosting it, it can be their connection that is causing the lag, the same goes if you host and they experience lag, the wireless and wired connection will be the same internet speed, but with wireless the data is transfered at 54MBPS over from the router to your xbox, but wired transfers at 100MBPS, the internet speed is always the same with both.

There are other factors which can cause lagging, one of which depends on the amount of people surfing using your ISP at the same time and sharing your line bandwith.

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

This is only a problem with the firmware of your modem/router that you need to update it, because a network device like a modem and router that is working fine for severla years and suddenly stop working you just need to update the firmware of it and it should be working fine again, to update the firmware of the modem/router just need to call the manufacturer for that....

Hope that helps.........

IPAQ Internet Appliance


You inquire on your nearest Internet Service Provider (ISP) for a DSL plan. DSL provides a bandwidth 3 to 4 times of the dial up.

I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router


  1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
  2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
  4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
  5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
  6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
  7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
Hope this helps!

My linksys BEFSR ver.3.1 S/N C2140DA22073, constantly drops my internet cinnection after a few minutes of none activity.


Do you use DSL for your connection?

DSL uses a phone line for the connection, and therefore if your ISP doesn't detect activity after a few minutes, it will drop the line. There is a setting called "keep alive" in your router which will automatically either redial or 'ping' your ISP to make sure this doesn't happen. It's in the basic setup screen; if you're using DSL enable it and set it to 1 minute.

We recently got high speed internet from Qwest. It will not work. It keeps saying that the can't "ping" it. All light are green; power DSL, and the Ethernet. The internet is not. I have...


The DSL router/modem will receive an address from your ISP (Qwest) and will assign an address to the connected PC.

There should be a cable that goes from your DSL modem to your PC. It'll either be a USB cable (flat rectangular plug on the PC end), or a RJ45 (looks like a wider telephone plug).

If there is neither connection between the DSL modem and your PC, then the PC can't "talk" to the DSL modem, so it's not getting an address from the DSL modem.
