    I'm using a wpc54gs (ver1.1)adapter in my Toshiba Portege 3500 TABLET and can connect for a very short time when running the SpeedBooster setup. Then the signal drops completely, or no internet.

The network key which you entered may not be correct, or the adapter may not be installed properly.. , type the n/w key in key 1 and not under passpharse and then check.. that would fix the problem..

An Access point is to add Wireless to a LAN. (which is ok if you have a Router connected to your LAN).

 

if you have no Router,  and only have an ADSL/Cable modem connected to a PC then you should have got a Router +ADSL/Cable modem instead of an Access point.  you can get routers like this which also have wireless, so you get all the functionality in 1 box

 

Here is a Wireless router, with hub and ADSL +Cable Support

    my appologies this router does not appear to have a DSL modem as part of the product, sorry, The text is rather misleading.



    you will most likely need to get one with an ADSL or cable modem, if you need to access the internet

SOURCE: You are connected to access point but the internet cannot be found.

Do you have a connection wizard that you can run on your computer? Linksys offers them for downloading at their website. Try that -
have you named your home network so your wireless connection can "find" it? You don't mention how your main computer is networked in. A wireless adapter for a notebook will need to have a Linksys connection wizard run on the laptop.

If you have a Linksys router connected to your main computer, it should already have the piece of software you need. Most likely, you'll need to put it on a flash drive and install it from that onto your laptop. the wizard helps also to diagnose the right settings.

If you want to post what you are using for your main network (linksys router?) and which operating systems you are using, that will help.

For example, in Vista, you'll need to enable the option for "network discovery" under your laptop's control panel/network and sharing center.

You also need to have certain settings on your main computer for the wireless to work - there are two main types of wireless connections - B and G. Most of today's routers and cards will do both, but if you have an older router, it might not be set up to handle the newer or combined types. They run on different frequencies, so your laptop might not be "reading" your router's frequency.Also, if you have other wireless/radio frequency equipment near your laptop, it can interfere with the signal being received right.

You also need to be sure that your firewall allows the linksys system to access your computer (allowed programs).

SOURCE: keep getting kicked off

usually the problem like this was cause by unupdated firmware of either you wireless card or router. check the manufacturer of both devices and check the website if there is any updated firmware of both. you will also find instructions on how to upgrade the firmware on the manufacturer website.

Get my emails through Gmail but can't log in with email


the procedure is very simple. You need a correct email address, and you need a correct password. The password is case sensitive so 'emerald' is not the same as 'EmErAld' in password parameters. All phone will try and capitalise the first letter and give you 'Emerald'.

You also need to make sure your email servers are correct and that the port info and security protocols are correct. If you didn't change any settings don't fiddle with them.

I am having a problem as I don't seem able to correct an email address. I have corrected the address book but my cards are still going to the wrong address. The correct one is [email protected]


by correcting the address book I assume you mean added your new correct address. You need to go in and delete the old address as it is coming up first before the correct one. What system are you using for mail? If my suggestion doesn't work will need more info. Thanks.
Hope this helps

3 Phase 7.5 HP air compressor overheat, runs on and off, we found it has no capacitor, what is the correct capacitor needed.


There could be several reasons why your unit is "overheating". Is the motor tripping the circuit breaker ? Is it the motor or the compressor that is overheating? I need more description of the problem. 3 phase motors do not have capacitors. Is the compressor turning the correct direction? Is the supply voltage correct? Is the power cable the correct size? Do you have the correct type and quantity of oil in the compressor?

Paper wont feed


It's just one of four things............

1. The paper is not loaded correctly on the correct path.

2. The paper is loaded correctly on the correct path but the "PAPER PATH" selected in the printer driver box or printer preference or application used is not set correctly to grab the paper from the correct path.

3. The paper path sensor is defective which means that the printer needs to be taken to a servicer or you need to contact epson for warranty options

4. The paper being used is too thick for the printer to feed it
