Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have to 'Dongle' my way to the internet!

I have had to resort to a Belkin dongle to receive the Internet as I seem to have a suspect ethernet connection problem. The appropriate led (1 of 4) lit until I pressed the 'reset' button for 40 seconds, as instructed by Belkin's Help Line. I see that the red led adjacent to the ethernet port on the back of the tower is no longer lit. I've tried a new ethernet cable - no joy.

I tried powering down and up several times and have substituted the ethernet cable. Could I perhaps have damaged the unit by pressing the reset button?

Reset shouldn't hurt anything.  The box may have died but the reset didn't do it.

Hi, if i'm not mistaken, the dongle connects to the mouse/reciever. so, you may need a new dongle and then just connect that one to your mouse?

I have a 3D Embroidery software that I still use and am trying to get the computer to recognize the dongle. I am using the Windows XP program on a laptop and I have it working on a desktop.

A variety of embroidery programs exist which use dongles. The failure to recognize the dongle for many of them seems resolved by acquisition of updated drivers. Access to the particular drivers has sometimes required contact with the software companies involved which then may provide links to a particular driver. An updated version of software may also be required. I suspect you are running the XP program in compatibility mode on a Windows 7 laptop. If you contact the software seller for support, you should include that detail. Here are some pages dealing with resolution of the dongle issue for several programs:

Belkin Dongle

You have to make sure first that the working pc is getting its internet connection from the BELKIN and not from the modem. To check that, right click the computer icon at the butoom right of your screen, click detail. ip address that is ok is in this form 192.168.xx.xx. If you are getting like 74.xx.xx.xx, that means that you are getting connection from the modem. THE MODEM ONLY GIVES ONE CONNECTION, MEANING THE ROUTER IS NOT FUNCTIONING CORRECTLY. After doing this you can give a follow up question.
