Question about Computers & Internet

7 Answers

I have loaded the software for a WRT54G2 on the new desktop. As instructed the data for setting up my laptop was saved to a jump-drive and installed successfully on my laptop. When I try to get online with the laptop, I get a "server not found." The icon in the lower tray of the laptop says it is connected to an unidentified network which is named ournetwork. Ournetwork is the name I gave our network when I installed the router software on the desktop. The icon does not have a red x in it, but there is something on it that looks like a yellow rectangle with a black exclamation point. When I right click and select Network and Sharing Center I get my laptop with a bar to the network icon that has the yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. The network is labeled as unidentified network. The bar from the network icon to the the internet has a red x in it. I previously sought help prior to buying a new desktop when I was trying to install the router on the laptop and the wireless on the old desktop. The problem then turned out to be that the WRT54G2 router wouldn't interface with OS's older that XP. That reference # was 080802-020027. This situation is entirely different, so I don't know that referring to the old contact will be helpful.

    The problem sounds simple; I'm sure it is for you. I have no idea what the WEP/WAP ios key should be and I have no idea where to find it. I do presume you are talking about changing something on the laptop.

    May I back out of this service I subscribed. If I couldn't understand the first answer, how in the world am I to understand the second? Good Grief!!!!!!!
    I am on the desktop which is connected to the router that is connected to the incoming phone line. It's working. what I want is for the laptop to work.
    If this is the nature of the service, I do want out; so please tell me how to back out. It ain't worth it. If you can't let me back out, please ask a suervisor to contact me.

  • r3dbon Aug 29, 2008

    I don't understand how or why it is not connected properly. I installed it as directed using the CD that came with the router. What else can I do? The yellow cable is in the yellow slot on the router and the yellow slot on the modem; the blue cable is in slot one of the router and the ethernet port of the desktop. This message will go through the router and reach you.
    I have no idea how to change the connection to make it any different. Is the problem the router?

It is alway recommend that you use the newest OS on the system that you are using for the server/host computer.
agter you have set up the network on the PC and Then you need to do the same as the lap top
The only thing is make sure you select that you wil be connecting through and another computer for you network

If you can go online wired to the router, please do the following steps:

1. Open Internet Explorer. On the Address Bar type http://192.168.1.1 and press enter.
2. It will prompt you to type in username and password. By default there's no username and the password is admin but if you changed it during the initial setup, please type in your own password for the router.
3. When you have the router setup page opened. Click on WIRELESS tab. Click on Manual then change the Wireless Channel to 11. Make sure the SSID Broadcast is set to Enable then click on Save Settings.
4. Go to WIRELESS SECURITY tab. Please double check the Security Mode. If the Security Mode is WPA-Personal, get the Shared Key/Passphrase (write it down on piece of paper). If the Security Mode is WEP, get the WEP Key #1 (write it down).
5. Now try to connect to your wireless network. Right-click on the wireless icon at the system tray and select Connect to a Network. You should see your network there, click Connect. It will tell you to type in the network key which is the WPA key or the WEP key tha you wrote down then click connect. That should fix your wireless connection.

    The solution that I posted needs to be done using your desktop (Steps 1 to 4).
    The Step 5 should be done on your laptop. Sorry for the confusion. Please give it a try again.

Seems the router is not correctly setup or connected to the internet - dsl modem.

Connect the dsl modem into the internet port, you may have to open up the web user internface to configure the connection correctly.

I would definitely say that is configured incorrectly as it is now.

Thanks,
Ekse

    Is your network secure?? because if its secure you need to make sure that you're typing the correct security key

  • Mark Gil
    Mark Gil Aug 29, 2008

    Go to your desktop computer , Open internet explorer then on the address bar type 192.168.1.1 hit enter then it will ask you for a username and password , leave the username blank and type admin for password.

    When you're already on the Linksys setup page, go to Wireless tab then you will see there Wireless security sub tab then there you can get the Security key that you need.

    Then after that connect again to your wireless network with the security key from the router page...

    Mark Gil Aug 30, 2008

    There's no problem with the router, you just need to connect your laptop manually to the wireless name of your router...if you have the user manual for your laptop read it to know how to make it work wirelessly...

What is the difference between windows 7 editions: starter, home basics, home premium,ultimate, professional,interprice?what is the difference between service pack 1 & 2???pc


Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):[6]
Windows 7 Starter Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[7]This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.[1][8][9] Windows 7 Home Basic Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries.[10] Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features.[1] Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.[11] Windows 7 Home Premium This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.[12] Windows 7 Professional This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users.[1] It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain.[1] Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB),[13] operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.[1] Windows 7 Enterprise This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.[14] Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis.[1] Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so.[1] Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.[1] All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.[15]

How do i turn off the HDD


What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.



hope that helps if not let someone here know.

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Hide file folder WITH A password


    For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
    Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
    A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.

    How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


    Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

    Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

    Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

    I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

    How to install Anti virus on my desktop


    Following the steps to install antivirus on you pc.

    Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.

    Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.

    Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.
