Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain

Q: Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain

SORRY FOR ALL THE BACKGROUND INFO

So I have had the same router for years now (Belkin f5d7623-4) and whilst its had its problems over the years its generally been okay. On my home network I have my Sony Vaio and my Asus, a ps3, both my iphone 4 and 5, my samsung tv, as well as my mum's acer netbook and her galaxy s3.

My iphone 4 is a few years old now and has for some time struggled to consistently connect and stay connected to the wifi, my asus had some problems but they were hardware related and I fixed them a couple of months ago. The acer netbook had been connecting to the wifi fine since my mum was given it when a few months ago it suddenly wouldnt connect and no matter what I did to the settings of the laptop or router it could not be solved, as my mum is not heavily reliant on technology we got her a long ethernet cable as a short-term fix. A few weeks later I wanted to use the internet functions of my samsung tv so I took the cable from the netbook as my mum wasnt there at the time. When my mum returned she complained about me having taken the cable but then found her netbook was working over the wifi again, since then it has stopped working with the wifi again. My vaio and ps3 have never suffered problems before and my 5 has only began to struggle since being water damaged.

SORRY FOR ALL THE BACKGROUND INFO

About 3 days ago I was in my kitchen where the wifi barely reaches and therefore paid no attention when my vaio lost connection and wouldnt regain it. It wasn't until the next day when I realised there was no connection still that I decided to investigate. After restarting the router and relocating to my living room the problem was solved. Then yesterday I became ambitious and tried to find a solution for the iphone not working over the wifi either.

THATS WHEN IT ALL WENT WRONG

I now since last evening cannot get my vaio to connect to the wifi no matter what, I've read other solutions on the internet and whether they dont solve my problem or ive implemented them wrong nothing is getting the wifi back.

It either displays as LIMITED CONNECTIVITY or as an UNIDENTIFIED NETWORK with NO CONNECTION, through ethernet cable though there is absolutely no issue.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!
I also have a BT HOMEHUB 2.0 although im with TALK TALK so if someone knows how I can flash the homehub then that would also be a solution for me

UPDATE

My asus works although it also had an unidentified network, I managed to get rid of this by disabling the windows miniports.

I tried the same fix on my vaio but it had no affect.

Managed to get my vaio to identify the network by assigning the ip myself rather than automatically but this also did nothing in terms of getting me connected

Moderator note: Do not shout please - All caps.

A: Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain

With the iphone I would try to forget the wifi network under your settings and then trying to reconnect it. They have weird issues like this often and that usualy fixes the issues. I have also have seen issues in the past with how my wireless routers have been configured. I have seen issues with mixed mode configurations and such. Can you send me any information on how your wireless router is configured?

What do you guys think about using brain waves as a form of computer input?

I read in a magazine article (that I couldnt find online..) that the average response for a gamer using a keyboard and mouse is ~150ms. However, in a test with a gamer using a brain wave input device which had the brain waves mapped to the keyboard and mouse, and only using the mouse for pointing (not clicking it), reaction time was ~50ms.

Ok heres my issue. I have a wireless lan setup. I am using a Linksys router WRT54GL. This router was working fine for the longest then one night a power shortage hits, it comes back up and everything seems fine. But now my LAN game cannot play.

I had a heck of a time setting it up to play and finally had been using Hamachi so I could create a makeshift VPN and have my friend play with me over the net.

So my setup was like this 2 PCs behind a router played with 1 PC on the internet. One of the 2 PCs behind the router would ALWAYS host.

Hamachi worked perfectly and everything would work so long as the firewalls were down.

Then that outage happened and I could no longer play. My problem is, I cant even play locally so now I know something is up with my router. At least I think something is up.

I have tried everything: my LAN is working, I can share files and folders between the two PCs and ping them.

But as soon as I go to play the game. Neither computer sees the other persons' game.
I am in utter AWE and shock cause I have tried everything I want to purchase a new router to see if thats the problem but I am not sure what to do.

My router allows me to go online, ping the each other and even share files. So I am really at a loss.

Does anyone know any program I could use to monitor ports and whats happening when the game starts?

Or maybe a networking consulting company in the NY/NJ area. Im really desperate at this point and wouldn't mind paying for thi... Read more

I have a very faulty dsl connection and a very expensive 3g connection. every time my wired connection fails I hook up my phone. but I would love to combine them or switch between them seamlessly, or put the phones connection into sleep mode, for the time the wired connection is active.
am I asking for too much or does anyone know a way to do all this or any of it?
Thanx

Please clarify my understanding below.

NIC teaming is a way to put two NIC cards in one computer and get double the network bandwidth on the single computer. This means that if i use NIC teaming i could hook my computer up to two ports of a dsl router and get twice the internet speed as well.

Hello everyone,

My motherboard supports 2 Gigabit Ethernet LAN through Teaming. Since I have a D-Link DIR-615 router that has 4 ports, I was thinking about trying to see what gain if any can be gotten with LAN teaming if I can get it to work.

I understand the basics about it, but I was wondering if anyone actually has or had LAN teaming (link aggregation) setup and how well did it work for you. I have searched the net, but there really isn't anything very helpful or detailed about setting it up. I'm hoping that someone could provide some more insight about this before I dive into it and find myself without a network connection for a bit. LOL


Thank you for anything you can add to help with the setup,
Shawn

A:Ethernet LAN Teaming

If you want my opinion, it is going to be expensive to implement so let it go.

Your DIR-615 doesn't support 802.3.ad or LACP. There is no way that you will be ablue to use port teaming with your current neteork equipment.

I've done port trunking on Windows Server 2003 with Cisco switches using LACP for my company. I have no idea how much the switches cost at work but I'm sure they were alot, as in tens of thousands of dollars alot. Every application of port trunking, old term I guess it's now teaming, was for a server that needed a bigger pipe so it could spit out the data faster to the end users. If you're just intending to use this on your pc for general use, gaming or whatevernot I think the cost of the switch may outweight the benefits, which IMHO are going to be none if you don't have at least 10 to 25 fast computers with gigabit connections requesting resources from your server.

Hello,

I have become interested in "teaming" multiple isp's to produce greater connectivity. I have done some research and found that previously 2 companies had great software to handle this at the router level. For some reason it seems support for both these softwares has not been available for several years now. I am also aware of the hardware solutions which are basically a router with multiple wan connections. What i am really interested in though, is there a software that will work on a single, end machine with two NICs? ( not at the router level)

I already have all my routing and switching taken care of. now i have two ethernet cables from 2 differnt ISPs that i wan't to plug into one machine only.

Just curious to see if anything has been developed for the small bussiness or home user. All i can seem to find is sever based.

Thanks
 

A:Connection Teaming?

this is called a multihome ip system (ie multiple gateways to the internet).

this is not a means to increase the bandwidth, but rather;

creates a redundant interface if one fails
allows selective routing of requests via the 2x gateways

on (2), the issue is the routing table (see netstat -r for the table itself and route /? on how to change it)

Every routing table has ONE default gateway. Unless some rule says otherwise, all
traffic will exit your system via the default.

With two or more gateways, you need to tell the system which domains will be routed
to the alternative gateway. If you read carefully, you will see that routing is by IP address,
so subdomain requests like /image.domain.com/ and /ads.domain.com/ will go to the
same root as /domain.com/ UNLESS the site has configured separate servers to handle different workloads.

I am in the process of setting up a Windows Home Server using an Intel-based micro atx board and plan to put a 4 NIC Intel Server PCI-e card in it, and "team" the four NIC's for a max throughput of 4gb/s. I am also building another Desktop. This will be my "main" PC and is going to be very high end with an ASUS Z87 Expert motherboard and the unlocked Haswell i7 CPU. I plan to install a 4 NIC Intel Server PCI-e card in that as well (and set up teaming) so I can get an effective 4gb/s transfer rate between the new PC and Windows Home Server. The rest of the house will have a standard gigabit connection. And yes, I have a switch that supports LACP (Link Aggregation Control Protocol or "teaming").

Anyway's bottom line is should I install Windows 7 or Windows 8 on my new Desktop PC? I would prefer to install Windows 8, but I was told by someone on another forum (smallnetbuilder.com) that they thought LACP was not supported by Windows 8 and that I would need to use Windows 7. I searched all over the web, but I can't get a clear cut answer to my question. Anyone know for sure?

A:Does Windows 8 support LACP (NIC teaming)

NIC teaming is limited to the Windows Server operations and is not in the Windows Client (7 and 8) OS.

That is the default NIC teaming method that can offer you the choice to use LACP or to use switch independent so that each interface can be on different switches.

That being said some manufacturers make certain drivers to allow NIC teaming on client operating systems however I am not sure whether it supports the LACP protocol.

I'm not sure where exactly to post tis but I'll try here. Ever since the newest update of windows 10 pro network teaming has stopped working . I have three network adapters that team together to give me the network speed I need to develop my apps. Now
Windows suddenly stops my computer from being able to team. so now it's using only one adapter for everything while my other two adapters just sit there doing nothing.

Is there an alternative to teaming that I can use so that my system uses all three network adapters again other than going in and setting the default adapter for specific application?

Hi all,

I was just looking for some info on connection teaming in Windows 7. Basically I have one landline connection running at 2megabit/sec, and one unlimited data plan on my mobile phone running at about 12-14megabit/sec. I figured if I could find some way to team these 2 together, I'd have a half decent download speed so I set about looking for some way to do this in Windows 7 but it appears Windows 7 does this all by its self! Has anyone else got any experience of this? Currently downloading at around 1.6MB/s so it must be working correctly, I just can't believe no one seems to have heard of this before!!

A:Connection Teaming automatically in Windows 7?

Actually, scrap that. It appears I'm downloading at 1.6MB/s just over my mobile phone connection :P

So, my question is how can I combine these 2 connections to get a higher download speed? Is there any software for that?

I have My PC (Win7) with Netgear WGR614v7 connected by Wired LAN to Topfield 7100 Pvr and Laptop (XP Pro). My main concern is the Topfield Pvr which must download programs from IceTV Interactive for Recording. After setting it up as DHCP (reccommended by both Ice TV and Topfield) and Pinging both ways to prove connection, I logged into the Router to check Network Status. The Topfield was displayed in the Attached Devices Page of the Router. Satisfied that all was setup OK, I logged out of the Router. Later in the day, I again logged into the Router to again check the Status of the Network. The only thing showing in the Attached Devices was: My Pc - the Topfield and the Laptop, both previously present, were not displayed in the Attached Devices Page, even though they were still Connected, On, and able to be pinged. The bring them back, I have to Re Activate the Topfield connection, unplug and replug the Cable on the Laptop.
I am of the belief, that once Devices are Setup, Remain Connected. Remain ON and are available for Communication (proven by Pinging), they should at all times be visible in the Attached Devices Page of the Router.

I have a Cisco Linksys E1200 router. Three computers are wired to it while my laptop connects to it wirelessly. When I look at the network topology (Network and Sharing Center->See full map), it shows that my laptop is connected to E1200 (this one has the same name as the router but different icon. The icon has an antenna. Thus, I think it is some kind of wireless device) which is connected to a switch, then a hub, then to the E1200.

A friend currently has a Belkin wireless G router and uses a D-Link DGL-3420 gaming adapter to connect her XBox 360 to her wireless network. This configuration works fine but she did have an issue where the connection was lost and the troubleshooting tool on the Xbox 360 recommended using an 802.11a connection to avoid possible interference problems. Apparently, the wireless Xbox 360 controller she uses broadcasts at 2.4GHz, just like 802.11g.

So, I'm looking at replacing her Belkin router with one that supports 802.11a. I see 802.11n wireless routers should support 802.11a/b/g devices but I was wondering if anyone here had any "real world" experience with connecting to a 802.11n wireless router using 802.11a.

Did it work for you? Have any problems?

Thanks!

Hi everyone. Ive been having a problem with my Netgear WGT624v3 router. Its broadcasting the WIFI signal ok. My devices pick it up but cannot connect. If i go and unplug the router and then plug it back in all the devices connect. They will stay connected for several hours but then the connection will drop. They can still see the router and they try to connect but i have to unplug it and then plug it back in, then they all connect again. Its happened with my phone, my laptop and my Kindle Fire. Any ideas guys? Thanks.

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here

I have 2 wireless PCs and a BlackBerry that connect to my dlink router. I am finding that my BlackBerry is constantly getting kicked off the network, and I always have to reconnect before I can use the internet. (It still says that it's connected though) I was told that a dual channel router would fix this.

So my question is, will 3 devices work without a problem on a dual channel router? Or is my BlackBerry still going to be "booted off"?

Thanks

Hey guys,

Just a quick one I'm sure most could answer, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to Wifi, and my router is kicking devices off when we have more than 4, picking and choosing which devices it will allow Wifi too. We often have 3 phones, 2 laptops and 1 PC in the house which need constant connection. What do I do to make this happen?

My Router is a D-Link: DSL-2780, I'm with Talk-Talk in the UK.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
In the past 3 days I've noticed that I periodically get randomly redirected via link bucks when browsing the internet. It was odd when it happened on my nexus 7 tablet but also has started happened on the 2 laptops that are connected to my router.
There's no specific pattern, time or website but it is certainly happening on websites that wouldn't use link bucks (Facebook/university e-mail). I have security software installed on all devices (lookout on nexus 7, MSE on windows 7 laptops).
Any advice anyone could offer would be appreciated, its getting annoying now!
Thanks!
P.s. - at the same time my nexus 7 stopped connecting to Google now with a connection error, but only when connected to my network, on other networks it works fine

Welcome aboard  Try resetting your router.... Turn the computer off.On your router, you'll find a pinhole marked "Reset".Keep pushing the hole, using a pencil, or a paperclip until all lights briefly come off and on.NOTE. Simple router disconnecting from a power source will NOT do.Restart computer and check for redirections.NOTE. You may need to re-check your router security settings, as described HERE

So I have a TP-LINK TL-WR841ND 300Mbps router and the basic problem is, that it repeatedly drops the internet connection and also the devices connected to it. But the my main computer, which is wired to the router has never had any problem, even at the time,when the wireless doesn't work. I use many os like win7, ios 5.1.1 on iPad 3rd, a samsung smart tv and a samsung smartphone with android. But as I mentioned it only happens with wireless, never with the wired computer. When the problem occurs there is no device, which can connect to the internet and to the router, except the wired one.

I've tried all of the encryptions and security methods, at the moment I use WPA2-PSK with AES (also tried with TKIP and automatic mode, and with disabled security too), but neither have helped me. Then I contacted the reseller and they gave me a new one, and said it could have had some special problem. The new one, which I'm using now, got the same problem.

Have any ideas why this problem occurs repeatedly? Or if you need more information about my devices, router or settings, please write me. Thanks in advance!

When it's powered on (active or sleep mode) it will boot all other devices in the house using the router (another desktop, 4 laptops, and 2 game consoles via ethernet or wifi connection - doesn't matter).

Hello,

Yesterday afternoon, my internet appeared to have gone down. I attempted to fix it in the usual way (turn it off and on) but to no avail. I assumed it must be on the ISPs end and continued on with my day.

The internet was still not working this morning, so I checked to see if it might be the router that is causing the issue. Lo and behold, I can access the internet through the modem. Great, router is bust.

Reconfigured it, I updated the firmware, and then did a series of ping tests.

Ping test to google through the ethernet was successful. Ping test to router IP address through the router was successful. Ping test to google through router was unsuccessful.

Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be? Just to reiterate, this is an issue across all devices (Mac, PC, iPhone/iPad, Android, PS3, etc... )
 

A:Router spontaneously stops working across all devices

Hopefully, you know and can still log into the router.
find the WAN side, specifically Router Status or that display that
shows:

IP Address (the public address, not 192.x.y.z)
Default Gateway (your connection to the ISP)
DHCP Server (will not be one of your lan addresses)
Subnet Mask

DNS Server
Lease Obtained
Lease Expires
if any of the first three are missing, then the modem did not feed the information to the router
OR the router did not save it.

disconnect the modem->router
power off both
wait one minute
power on the modem
connect the router (but still powered off)
when the modem is fully sync'd with the ISP
power on the router
from your computer

ping 8.8.8.8 (a ping by address)
nslookup google.com (a dns request that should resolve to an address)

ping google.com (a ping that requires nslookup to work)

Hello,
what you need are the drivers for your PC.
If it is from Dell,HP or similar go on their support page and get drivers for your PC there.
If this is self built PC, than you will need to know what are the components inside,especially network card and than download the drivers.
I suppose you will download drivers on your laptop.Put the drivers on an USB key or CD and then install them on your desktop. usually once the chipset and network card is installed, the rest you can download directly on this PC. Do not forget to install anti-virus software and do the updates.

Two days ago, somehow Windows lost the ability to contact any DNS server in the middle of my browsing for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and indeed a small browser called Midori. Strangely, Steam still had the ability to connect and browse, but after I rebooted in an attempt to fix the problem, steam could no longer connect.

Chrome Error: DNS PROBE FINISHED NO INTERNET FOUND

IE Error: This page cannot be displayed.

Firefox Error: Firefox cannot find this page.

No other device in my house has this problem. All other computers can connect just fine.

Things I have tried

Rebooting.
Cycling the power on the modem/router.
Using a direct ethernet cable rather than the laptop's antenna.
manually assigning a DNS server with control panel.
Reinstalling the network driver
flushing the DNS cache
Using system restore to go back DAYS before this problem ever emerged.

All yielded no change. I would really, really rather not have to reinstall windows 8 and lose all my information. I don't have the resources currently to back everything up.

About a year ago, my wireless router would randomly not allow any wireless devices to connect to the network. A wired cable worked fine, but not wireless. So we had to unplug the router, and then it would work fine.

You could see the device, but not connect. We moved our wireless phone a little farther away from the router thinking it was interfering, but still no luck. It didn't matter if it was an iPod, our BluRay player, or a laptop. Sometime days would go by with no problem, and some days we would restart the router three or four times.

So we replaced the router, only to have the same problem. We called tech support, but they were no help. So we changed from a local ISP to Comcast, replaced the router for a third time (Cisco Wireless N), and we are still having the same problem. Any ideas?

Hi All,
I have an issue with my wireless router that I needed some help with. To start off let me give you a bit of background...

I use a macbook at home and a pc at work and I wanted to be able to access my macbook remotely. I used RealVNC for this and had to open up port number 5900 on my router, and the local IP used was 192.168.1.4 - which is the local IP address of my macbook. I am now able to access my macbook from my pc at work.

Unfortunately as a side effect, no other device is able to access my home wifi connection anymore, not another pc, my nokia e71 or my friend's iphone. Is this a by product of the port forwarding? or is it unrelated and should I try and figure out if something else is the matter?

My macbook seems to be able to use the wifi just fine.

Would appreciate any insight on this matter.

Thanks a lot
 

A:Has Port Forwarding Disabled Other Devices From Accessing My Router?

I think the other devices are not able to connect not because of the port forwarding, but because you went ahead and gave a static IP address to your macbook, The 192.168.1.4, and all the other devices for some reason also want this IP addresss. Try assigning your macbook to a different IP.

I have alltel wireless internet that uses ICS through that. The lan card on my pci bus is connected to a LAN port on the same router. When i am not using ics i disable the lan on my motherboard and vice versa. I am using the second LAN on my pci bus that is connected to one of the LAN ports on my router so my computer can use MCE and DIRECTV2PC. I have another line connected to a LAN port on the same router going to a switch which is connected to my 360 and my directv receiver.
-Here is the problem. Say im using DIRECTV2PC and the xbox gets turned on, what happens is i lose connection to my directv and my computer only sees the xbox and vice versa. I am confused on why that is, it should see both at the same time and not lose connection to any one of them right?

whoa man never heard of that kind of set up before. try connecting your internet to the WAN port on the router and connecting the rest of your stuff to the inputs on the router. its a little less complicated this way.

I have 7 devices connected to my Netgear Router 600/3700v2 and the devices keep disappearing. I believe I have found the solution. Connect to your Netgear Router (you will see BASIC and ADVANCED options) and select the ADVANCED settings. Click the tab below ADVANCED SETTINGS and in the drop down menu select UPnP. You will see on the top of the screen ADVERTISEMENT TIME TO LIVE - this setting DEFAULTS TO "4" which is okay for "normal" home use (well, it didn't work for me). This setting is what controls your attached devices. If you keep losing them, try increasing the settings until they remain visible. I tried 5 first - no go. Then I tried 8 and I haven't lost the devices since. Hope this works for you!

I have tried to research this and am not finding the information I need to answer the above question so hope a networking expert can help.

I recently for the first time went over my monthly data cap for broadband and looking it to it a bit more it looks like a lot of the programs my kids are using are hogging the bandwidth. I don't really want to pay for more bandwidth (as I already pay way above average as I live in a small rural village) but I don't want to restrict too much what my kids are doing.

The solution to me seems to be to see if I can monitor and if possible control to some extent the data on each of the IP connected to the router if that is at all possible.

I have looked at my router settings and unfortunately they do not permit anything more than traffic monitoring and there are no custom firmwares to allows additional features of any use.

Is there any software that I could use to do this?

Can anybody help at all with any advice about whether this can be done?

A:Can i monitor and control multiple router connected devices data???

It is almost impossible to restrict the total usage of bandwidth. To my knowledge there are no setting for that in normal routers/gateways.

This is my first post and glad to be here among experts. I will list my issue, please tell me what information you need to be of assistance.

I have a net gear WNR2000vs with the latest firmfware to date. I have two wired devices connected: 1. my pc 2. xbox, and also one wireless device connected 1. my cell phone via wi fi.

Before I updated the firmware:
I would hard wire my 360 and pc to the router together. My 360 online play would work fine for about 10 minutes then my connection on my 360 and pc would drop. My network status would say 'resolving issue'.

After updated the firmware:
I now have my 360 and pc hard wired to the router together. These two seems to work fine together. When I try to connect a wireless device my connection drops. My pc resolves the issue and regains connection, but if I try to navigate a webpage or download anything from the wireless device then it starts the whole dropping connection thing again.

I just received my new Cisco SG200-08 GB Managed Switch yesterday! Requirements were future proofing my network with IPv6, POE, VOIP, VPN,... Actually this thing has too many features... for now! Awesome switch @ $117!!! Newegg.com - Cisco Small Business SLM2008T-NA 10/100/1000Mbps SG200-08 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch 8 x RJ45

After setting up the switch and rewiring both Realtek 81xx gigabit nics to the new switch with cat6, I set out for all the info on TEAMING the 2 NICs on my Gigabyte EP45 UD3P Mobo. KEY ISSUE HERE: DO YOUR HOMEWORK ON YOUR NICS, MOBO, & "TEAMING UTILITY". This worked for me because I run a mobo with dual nics that support this "teaming" feature. I have a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P utilizing dual Realtek 81xx NICs, which do support "Bundling" the NICs. Any similar mobo with dual 81xx realteks should work the same... read on!

First off, to anybody who thinks this is going to be a magic cure... it isnt! Your 2.0 Gbps possible bandwidth on a pair of teamed NICs isnt going to make the Internet any faster... most "high" speed Internet connections here in USA top out at 50-60 mbps. This teaming, or more correctly link aggregation, can help if you run a media, file, or game server ON A LOCAL NETWORK. It might also help if you are a LAN party fanatic ! ...BYOS (Bring Your Own Switch)!

Link aggregation is often abbreviated LAG. Other terms include: trunking, link bundling, Ethernet/network/NIC bonding, NIC teaming, por... Read more

As it says on the tin really! I am an absolute non technically minded person so have no idea how to even start trying to fix this problem. A few weeks ago our router quite happily let multiple devices attach wirelessly to the internet at once but in the last couple of weeks it has started only allowing one device at a time to connect to the internet. If say my partners work laptop is connected then our home laptop/iPad can see the wireless router but it will not allow them to connect to the internet anymore. Can anyone help me to try and sort this please...I can use my computer for basic things but am in no way technically minded so please be very clear and simple with any help you are able to give.

Hello,

My laptop is yet again teaching me that technology is not prefect. I have had a Dell Latitude D400 for about three years now and suddenly its beginning to crash. I have done the small things such as remove my pictures and most music from my laptop. Nevertheless there is still less then 5% of space left. I went to the add/remove file most programs there Windows XP needs in order to function. Also, I decreased viritual memory to the max. recommended of 381. I am not sure if there are any scanners I can download to find unused, half deleted parts of downloads from the past. At this point, I am not sure what to do. Can you please help me determine if there is more usable space on my laptop that I am not aware of? This is the error that my system sent to Microsoft (don't know what it means).

Error type : Windows stop error (A message appears on a blue screen with error code information)
Solution available? : No (see Next steps)
What does this error mean? : Windows has encountered an error from which it cannot recover and needs to restart
Cause : Unknown device driver
Computer symptoms : A message appears on a blue screen with error code information (for example: e.g. 0x0000001E, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED)
Additional steps for you to take : Important: Please continue to send error reports so analysts at Microsoft can study and try to correct the problem as quickly as possible

Goodmorning peoples

I have to buy a new computer - don't need monitor, keyboard, mouse

I have been searching Dell, HP & Sony. There is a lot of pretty stuff up there, but I don't have a clue what it all means and don't know where to begin to compare.

I just don't know here to start and I hope you can guide me.

Right now I have a sad sony with winme and it crashes all of the time. Mostly because I run out of memory, resources. I checked with the manufacturer and I can't upgrade - max memory is 256 for this thing. Now matter what, now it is beyond maxed out. I get frozen white screens daily and my dll's are messing up a lot. (I do use SpyBot and AdAware and I seem to be okay there ... dunno about the dll thing)

I (try to/want to) use my machine with many applications open
i.e. MSOffice/Outlook, JASCPaintShop, MSImageComposer, MSFrontPage, AdobePhotoshop/Illustrator, as well as ZoneAlarm, AVG, browser, my ISP hookup, etc.

I don't play games. I just like to work with a lot of pictures, graphics editing and webs.

Can you guys help me to get started?
(is this the right place to post?)

I am so exasperated I am not even sure if I have asked in here before. I know I have done a lot of searching this past few months and am still sitting here with this sad, sad machine, lost by techno terms I do not understand

Can you help?

Hi There.
I am running Windows XP on my computer with Office 2000. Everything was running fine until my computer was infected with the Sven virus. I removed the virus but was told that it could have made changes to my computer, making it vulnerable to another virus. For that reason I decided to re-install all software.
Since then I cannot send or receive faxes using Outlook 200 with the Symantec Fax Starter Edition. I can set up the fax ok, but when I send it just sits there until it times out. It displays the message "connecting to server" but never seems to connect. Then I get the error message "A Timeout occured while communicating with the server. (Account: 'Symantec Fax Starter Edition',SMTP Server: '127.0.0.1', Error Number: 0x800ccc19)"
I've tried everything that I can think of, including re-installing it several times. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this

Milack.

Hello, I'm not sure if I have anything left on my computer as it seems to be working fine. But I was hoping someone could check it out for me.

This morning I had antispy brain on my computer which told me that all my .exe files had viruses and tried to make me go to a site to purchase antispyvir software to remove it. It also made it so I couldn't access the web and I kept getting proxy errors saying that the sites I was going to did not allow proxies.

What I did instead was stop the process from my computer. Then I changed to using no proxys. This allowed me to run my antivirus AVG and malwarebytes, both did not find anything. This also allowed me to get online again.

I rebooted a few times and the antispybrain never came back. I was able to turn on proxys again and could get online. I did notice that some of the forums I normally go to did not log in automatically anymore. I had to type in my username and password. I also had to type in the full username as my saved form fields weren't pulling down either. I'm not sure if this happened because of the proxy setting change or not, but it was just odd.

Everything is working fine, but I never deleted any files so I believe it's still lurking on my computer somewhere.

Here’s a real stumper for someone who wants a challenge. I guess first I will describe my system. I have the following:

>Toshiba satellite 2800 laptop
>256 ram
>3com pcmcia NIC card
>Lynksys 1 port router going to an eight-port hub
>Win2k
My problem is that I cannot get my laptop to get and IP address through the router it simply cannot see my local network or the Internet. All the other computers in my office work through this router. I have tried 3 different cables, I have tried every different port on the hub, I have tried recycling/resetting the modem and router, I have rebooted countless times. The router is able to give out 50 IP/s. All of my computers are on DHCP and they all work fine. All MAC addresses are registered. So I tried plugging in directly to the modem. Alakzam!! It worked. So I guess it just doesn’t like my router. Is there some setting I forgot? Oh I have also forced a static IP, that didn’t work neither. I have tried to release and renew and is says, “All adapters bound to DHCP do not have DHCP addresses. The addresses were automatically configured and cannot be released.” I have tried to renew and that doesn’t work neither.
 

A:brain teaser

All MAC addresses are registered. Click to expand...

Exactly what do you mean by this? If you're restricting access based on MAC address, I'd suggest you turn that off and see if it helps. The cable modem won't restrict the connection based on the MAC address of the machine, that could be the difference.

I just switched to alltel's wireless service, using a pantech um175. Ideally, I would like to have an "always on" desktop, connecting pantech through it and just broadcasting for other machines (laptop running vista and wii) to pick up....if that is even possible.

I have a linksys WRT54G router, and I've tinkered with the settings through my own research and only ended up more confused and still no juice. My other machines can detect the network and connect, but I only get internet with the machine that actually has the pantech attached.

Have the pantech connected to laptop now, even tried a usb to ethernet adapter to connect directly to my wii, turned on ics for alltel's adapter-had given up on networking and just tried to get access to download some apps, and wii can't establish a connection either....so there is obviously a huge point I'm missing here about sharing that connection.

You need to enable DHCP on the wireless connection ( or wired connection if using the secondary router) and then enable ICS to share the Internet connection with the wireless link. If you're using the Linksys wireless router, I'd use the wired connection to connect the Linksys router to the computer.
Configure DHCP for Windows Vista.
Click on the Start menu, and select Control Panel.
Click on Network and Internet. (Skip this step if you do not see this Control Panel item.)
Click on Network and Sharing Center.
Click on Manage network connections.
Right click on Local Area Connection and choose Properties. If Windows say it needs your permission to continue, click Continue.
Select Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
Click OK to close the TCP/IP Properties window.
Click OK to close the Local Area Connection Properties window.
Click Close to close the Network Connections window.
Click Close to close the Control Panel window.
Restart your computer.

Next, if you feel the need to use the Linksys, configure it as follows.

I recently had to remove a trojan Anti Virus 2009 infection from my computer along with many other infections that this bogus program allowed on my system. All is back to normal except for one odd thing: I can't access Google Mail! Here's what I've done so far:

1. Tried the other versions of GMail like html, https, and older versions.
2. Deleted all cookies, temp internet files and history.
3. Reset IE 7's security settings.
4. Turned off firewall and anti-virus program.
5. Installed both Chrome and Firefox and tried them.

Each time, I get a 'page cannot be displayed' type error message. System is a very ordinary Dell with 1GB RAM, Windows XP with all service packs installed. GMail worked fine before the infection.

I'm at a loss as to what to try next.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Well, I am hoping you like my unusual gift ideas for kids. With Holiday arising, it really is time for you to prepare. At the same time, whilst the gift is enjoyable, why don't you it be a "Brain Booster" reward at the same time?

Hi all,
I did an accidental system restore on my XP computer (don't ask ) and now Norton antivirus 2003 doesn't run properly.
When I went trouble shooting, the Symantec website recommended uninstalling and reinstalling, because in the startup list I'm missing "Regvfy" and in the services list I'm missing "Symantec event manager, Norton antivirus autoprotect service and Symantec password validation service".
Ergo, I am unable to complete common client updates on live update and unable to set auto protect.
Phew!
Now my problem is this - my 2003 version of norton is registered and paid for, but it was a installed by the store I purchased it from (I presume, it was on the comp when I bought it) so if I uninstall I have no disk to load it from.
When I search the net for a downloadable version - thinking I type in my registration number and Symantec will let me have a copy, I find no such luck - I must buy it again.
I resubscribed in April which is why I don't want to spend more money, but it seems to have remebered my registration details and reset the expiry date because of the system restore.
Does ANYBODY have any ideas on what I can do?
I apologise for the hand wringing and realise this may just be a giant case of 'oh boohoo I'm so stupid I need some sympathy' but someone may have an idea that can help.
Thankyou in advance!
