Open internet explorer, click tools, internet options, the click connections tab, then tick the button, 'never dial a connection', click apply, close internet explorer, then open again and you may need to refresh the page a few times

What wireless adaptor would you recommend for Acer Travel Mate 212TX


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A USB wireless adapter uses the same 3G mobile/cell phone network and can be separately or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses a wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD. http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

Dont know how to connect to internet


If you want to connect to internet there are different ways on how to do it.
  1. The first one is to have a wireless broadband modem that you will use to gain signal and access the internet.
  2. The second one is to find a Free Wifi Zone where you can access the internet using you Laptop wifi. (This is what i suggest you must do, so that you dont have to spend money to access the internet) but some wifi zone are password protected so be sure to find a open shared wifi.
  3. The third one to apply for dsl /lan connected internet that uses ethernet wires that will be connected from the modem to your wifi in able to gain access to internet.
Hope i Help..

Slow connection to internet , what anti virus is best/easy to dow


Notebook may be slow as it may already be infected with a virus which also could be preventing the installation of an antivirus. Suggest you download Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool if possible on to your notebook. If possible, download directly to your hard drive and then run it from there. If too difficult or not possible, download using another computer onto a thumbdrive which you can then plug into your laptop to run it. The Tool is Windows version specific and is tailored to remove specific prevalent malicious software from Windows AFTER it has been infected. Microsoft releases a new version on 2nd Tuesday of every month and the latest was posted March 8th. Clicking on the following link will take you to Microsofts Knowledge Base Article #890830 for details and to do the subsequent download for the version of Windows that is on your notebook.
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=890830


After running the Malicious Software Removal Tool you may choose to install an AntiVirus. You can retry downloading and installing from the internet or alternatively just buy a packaged product from a local store which would be on a CD.

A final but effective alternative is to back up any personal data you have on the notebook onto removable media and then use Acer's eRecovery to restore the notebook to its factory installed image. The recovery files are contained in a hidden partition of the hard disk drive on the Acer notebook. Acer eRecovery is accessed by pressing the Alt and F10 keys together repeatedly as the notebook starts up. Once recovery is done, the wireless will require re-entry of the WEP or WPA key if you have the wireless security enabled on the router for your broadband connection. However, if your wireless is open, then a key is not required. Note that if indeed you have unsecured wireless, this may be a contributing factor for the slow to connect to internet that you were experiencing as others can freely connect through your open wireless and proceed to do heavy downloads at your expense.

Trying to access the cd rom on a Acer Aspire 9300


When you go to safe mode, make sure that you go to "safe Mode with Networking", that way you can access the net. To make sure you have a good connection, get a long ethernat cable and connect it directly to the back of the router, in case the wireless driver fails. Get on the net forst, then try this site for your cd reading problem.....
