Computer: ASUS K52F, Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit

I am weak on the technical issues for using cable Internet. Let me tell you what I want to do and you tell me what equipment I should order from Cox Communications when they come to my apt. for the install.

I will be ordering Cable Internet from Cox. I will be ordering VOIP phone from Pioneer Telephone and not from Cox. Pioneer supplies a device that requires an incoming Ethernet connection from the cable modem. The other end of this device connects to the phone. My computer also requires an Ethernet connection from the modem. So what equipment do I need from Cox to accomplish this? Do I need a router with multiple Ethernet connections where the router connects to the modem, and the computer & phone connect to the router? Or can Cox supply a cable modem with multiple Ethernet connections for both phone and computer? Or do I totally misunderstand this technology?

Please help - thank you.

A:Cable Internet - How To Connect Both Computer And Voip Phone

Your cable internet service provider (Cox) should supply all that you need to connect with them. Whether or not they make a charge, sometimes just for sending the router, is something you should know from the package. I don't know of an ISP that provides a router with less than 4 Ethernet connection sockets. But presumably the equipment will also facilitate WiFi - all the VOIP methods I know of here in the UK are able to work on WiFi.
Pioneer should provide you with what you need for their service.
Either way read very carefully what Cox supply, either included in the rental or if you have to buy a router separately make sure you get one with the minimum system requirements they mention.

I am trying to connect my new Lumia 435 Windows phone to my Windows 8.1 Tablet PC via the cable supplied with the phone. It is clearly connecting as the phone is charged from the USB port. The phone is supposed to appear as a USB external device, like a USB Flash Drive.  However, I cannot get the PC to detect the phone so I cannot transfer data between the two devices.When connected with the USB cable the phone does not appear anywhere: in Devices, Portable Devices, Windows Explorer. The 'transfer my data' app says it cannot transfer.I have read the Microsoft articles on connecting and syncing with USB / Bluetooth. I cannot find any solution to my problem. Can someone help with this?Clayto2

Last week i decided to move my computers (2). Internet was working fine before i did this. After I moved them I havent been able to connect except for a usb cable. Both computers are using the Windows Vista home premium 32 bit. Before all of this happened I had 2 computers and an Xbox 360 all connected. I have tried everything I can think of and none of it worked. I have charter cable internet and they were able to get on the internet fine using the ethernet cable. when i go to ipconfig/all it gives me a IP address. I have read several places where people have been having problems with this but all the suggestions for them nothing worked for me! Please help

A:Cannot connect to internet using Ethernet Cable but can connect with USB cable

Do you connect via a modem or a router. Did you try the release/renew options when you were in ipconfig ?
If you use a router check it to see if it's still giving out IP's automatically.

Hi, so I hope you guys can help me with this. I want to buy a mini usb to headphone jack adapter like the one above for my cell phone. They say that that one is for Motorola phones. My phone is a Toshiba Portege G710. It has a mini usb port and mini usb headphones work with it. But will this adapter work even though they say it's for Motorola? In other words:
Are the connectors used for audio the same on all USB plugs?
(After all, it's called "Universal Serial Bus")

Thanks for replying, I'd really appreciate it.

A:mini usb to headphone jack adapter compatible with every cell phone?

even though it says USB, when it comes to cell phones they are not wired all the same. I would look for an adapter made specificall for Toshiba Cell phones. The manufacturer of the one that lists it is for Motorola Phone may also manufacture one for your phone.

Hey guys,

My computer was working fine at home, and I had to move it into school. So, I put the computer in the car and brought it to school. There wasn't any sort of bump or anything that could've damaged the computer, but for some reason the computer won't start up.

When I push the power button, all the fans (including CPU) start up, the LEDs of the computer turn on and everything looks good for about 2 seconds, then the computer shuts down. I tried unplugging peripherals from the power supply, and nothing seemed to work until I decided to unplug the Mini ATX power cable (the four pin cable that plugs directly into the mobo, correct me if this isn't the mini ATX cable), and then it stayed on for awhile. Of course, since that cable wasn't in, my video card wasn't powered, so there wasn't much that happened.

Is this a motherboard short or a power supply short? I don't have another power supply handy to try and fix it, and I was hoping I could get a response as to what is most likely the culprit here.

Thanks in advance.

In fact, I am doing this right now with some areas of my house which are just running regular analog phones versus the VoIP phones I have on other parts of my house.

How I'm doing this is via a patch panel. I have a patch panel configured for analog voice which is wired into my Telco's service. I just move the cable for the corresponding network drop I want to now have analog voice from my network switch to this patch panel.

OK, so my phone has decided to partially stop working.

It's a Sony Ericsson W810i, and when I plug it in on phone mode nooothing happens.
Well, the phone says it's connected, and it charges throught the cable, but the program says it's not connected.

I've tried:
reinstalling the program (no change)
reinstalling the cable driver (no change)
trying it on a different cable and computer (worked)
using that cable on my computer (no change)

So I'm guessing that its my computer that's being silly,

A new router has been sent and the problem still persists, a bt engineer has also visited but cannot find a solution.

Can anybody please help me?

A:I can't connect to wifi but connect with an Ethernet cable works, even when it isn't plugged in

It gets confusing as to which device is being used so as a guideline
disable one or the other (wifi vs wired) and don't allow both to be active at the same time. Technically, which ever device gets an IP address from your router will become the gateway to your ISP - - ignoring the connectivity of the second device to access your router.

With a laptop, we just toggle the keyboard to enable/disable wifi and the wired is easy - - just pull the cable out.

create a desktop shortcut to \windows\system32\devmgmt.msc
to control the devices (needs admin access)
expand [+] network adapters and you'll see the list
mine are

Dell Wireless 1502 ....
Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
Just right-click->disable and you can always right-click->enable

The png posted shows both are enabled and the wired has the gateway.
If the cable is disconnected, this is quite impossible.

SO, first control which device is to be used and then make the connection.

I am not sure how to explain this without a picture, but the data cable that is connected to my phone seems to have 3 ends to it....One to the phone itself, and 2 other plugs.

I know one of the 2 goes into the wall jack, but where does the other one go..?
And is it ok to leave the other one unplugged..?
Does that create any problems if I use a DSL filter with that 1 plug not used?

Also, I think these "plugs" I am calling them are actually called RJ11's so is it normal for a phone cable to have 3 of these rj11's

I can't take a picture, here is a picture I drew:

will this cause problems with my connection? I have a low SN margin on my downstream (5 to 6), and a bad downstream sync rate..

A:Is it normal for my phone data cable to have 3 plugs?

The wall jack is probably the connection to your Telco from an external DMARC/NID. The DSL filter is providing filtration for the analog phones because of the signal modulation being used for DSL carried over the standard POTS line. There is nothing wrong with leaving an unconnected phone jack/RJ11.

If I go to Device Manager they are not listed in "Ports or USB". If I go to "Add Hardware" they are not found and if I go through to install the driver manually for the cable, a message comes up saying the drivers are not digitally signed and will not install it.

Do you really mean that the distance from the incoming phone master socket or whichever phone socket you are connecting to is 120 metres - as if so I just cannot imagine how you have such a distance between a phone line socket and the modem/router
The image does not really help as there are of course no details of the cable
Cheaper cable is normally flat and is made of stranded cable - non twisted pair
You most certainly need shielded solid core twisted pair
See here
although as I said I just cannot envisage 120 metres

The telephone wiring in our house is very old & confusing; only 2 outlets, both downstairs, are functional. We use cordless phones (Vtech) & the transmitter base for 4 satellite phones is plugged into 1 of those outlets. My desktop pc is upstairs where, until recently, there was a functioning phone outlet to which i connected the internal modem. I use the modem for faxes. I have FIOS for the internet. That outlet is no longer available & I have been without a modem for some time. Trying to fix the upstairs wiring has been a frustrating waste of time. I don't want to pay a repairman for something that could be very expensive & involve going behind the walls, especially when a wireless solution might be much easier.
Question: is there a modem i can purchase that is wireless & responds to a phone call from a transmitter station that is plugged into a phone outlet, just like my cordless phones do? I want to plug it into the other outlet downstairs. Any other solution using my home tel# would also be welcome.



A:Need modem that doesn't require phone cable. (wireless?)

I have a audio jack cable i.e.

and I want to listen to music on phone through computer speakers. It works, but.....

In the sound control panel settings>recording tab>line in properties>Listen tab, there is a tick box 'Listen to this device'.

When I tick it, I get a "good" sound, however their is a slight noticeable echo.

When I leave it un-ticked, I still get sound but it is not as good, however it has no echo.

I am assuming, when it is unticked, the sound is playing through the inner speaker that is connected to the motherboard (that plays beeps on error at pc boot). When I leave it ticked, the sound is playing through that inner speaker but also through the computer external speakers, however one is playing the sound "faster" than the other and that it why there is an echo (one is playing at a small time interval behind the other). Would I be right in saying this?

My question is, if this is true, is there a way to disable that motherboard speaker without opening up the pc and disconnecting it? I want to do this so that I can get what seems to be better sound from the external speakers only.

From checking up, you could do something in windows 7, go to device manager, view hidden devices and a device group 'Non plug and play devices' would appear

see How can I disable / enable the internal speaker?

However, apparently this hidden option has been disabled in windows 8, see third bullet point in following link

Just bought a new customized HP desktop. I do a lot of faxing through my computer and my last notebook had a fax modem built in. HP tells me I'll need an external fax modem (which plugs into the USB port) if I want to fax with the new machine. Then, the RJ45 of the phone line (coming from the SAME cable as my internet and television) goes into the USB fax modem.

Why? If my internet and television and my phone are all from the same cable company cable, why can't software in my computer dial the fax number through the internet cable plugged into my computer?

I don't want to fax through some internet company I have to pay. I want to scan documents using my scanner then fax them out using the Windows fax application.

I currently use XP but the new machine will have Vista.

HP also tells me internal fax modem cards are a thing of the past, replaced by the USB modem. True?

I just recently bought a data link cable for my cell phone(vga1000 sph-a620 by samsung, a great phone, that supports .midi ringtones if any of you are looking for one). Semi-problem is, since this was bought off ebay, support isn't all that grand. The guy self burned the drivers and such onto the disc, and I don't blame him for doing so, I believe he did a great thing. Real problem though, I am almost positive the drivers on it don't support my phone.

I've looked everywhere online and the only answer I found to my problem was some linux programming god who eventually wrote his own drivers. Now, I'm not that far away from doing this myself, but I'd rather not. Here's the deal:

The phone when hooked up to the datalink cable is viewed as a USB modem. Which it should be. So the drivers are working that far. I can check out it's properties and see that it's on COM3 and that's ok.

The main way to get stuff on this phone, specifically ringtones, programs and pictures is to replace data already written on the phone. That's not a big deal, because of the great program Gagin, that came with the disc. It needs a COM port to pick at to find the directory in the phone, so I tell it COM3, and it either gives me a unrecognized memory error(kinda pointing at the drivers at fault) or it will not find anything at all, as if nothing is on com3. I've tried changing it's ports, and other computers, but the results are mo... Read more

Hi All,
I have Laptop Toshiba Satellite L775, windows 7. I used cable modem Motorola SURFboard SBG6580 and it was working fine. Then I changed my ISP to Century Link and used their DSL modem and still everything worked just fine. Now I moved to another city and used same cable modem (SBG6580) and connected my business PC thru ethernet and it is working fine. The problem is with my laptop which I tried to connect wirelessly but coudn't so I tried to connect it thru ethernet but it does not even recognizes it. Funny thing is my hard wired computer has picked up same network name thru modem and is working fine both thru ethernet and wifi (this computer I am using first time with this modem).
My laptop find available networks and when I select my network with password, some time it says connected with limited access and some time "windows was unable to connect" message. I tried most of the solutions by calling Suddenlink and Motorola but no luck. I am wordering if it has to do anything with centurylink's DSL modem being used on this laptop before and somehow blocking cable modem?

HP (Yeah, I know, I tried to tell her but she bought it anyways.)

I am so embarrased for asking as I am A+ Certified for a few years ago with not one but two different A+ manuals sitting around, please help.

My question is - My girlfriend brought over her HP Mini 1000 laptop and asked nicely for me to fix her networking problem and after mocking her silently to myself for getting it I sat down and attempted to help her. Her problem is that with this laptop she can no longer connect to any network or even see how as the icon at the taskbar for connecting to a wireless network is now gone and doesn't appear.

As wireless networking is a completely new field to me but I have a little bit of experience, I am no means an expert. I do not know of any way to restore her network connection or even show her a way to connect to a network via a wireless connection.

Following the various things I have read online as well as here, I can answer the following questions.

1. All Hardware is Enabled without problems, I viewed the Device Manager and a network adapter is listed.

The Network Adapter is
Broadcom 802.1 b/g wlan

HP mini only supports B and G but not N (I know I have one) are you using Win 7 or XP? Anyways, try this, remove all your wireless networks (advance wireless settings on XP or network and sharing center on win 7 or 8) then do a new scan and retry to connect to the new found router (if you can't connect) please verify the wireless setting in the router, please make sure the Network name is correct, you have the right wireless key, and that you router supports B and G, you may have to connect a Ethernet wire between the pc and the router and access the router by the gateway ip address to verify these settings.... If you don't know how to check this, then please ask
if this is not the case, you might be connecting to an open wireless network that might be far away and is appearing as unidentified
please verify all this and let me know

Hello all!
My friend got a HP Mini 210 from Verizon, I believe a few years ago. It has a sim slot, but there isn't a sim card in it. I don't know if she took it out, or if she never needed one.
It is an HP Mini 210 running Windows 7 Starter.
Apparently she isn't using Verizon anymore, as she recently bought a T-Mobile hot spot instead. She can't get it to connect to the T-Mobile hot spot wifi, and I brought it home, and can't get it to connect to my home wifi either. Well actually it says "Connected" but "No Internet Access." Internet is fine and working well, so that is not the problem.
The Verizon connection is under Dial up and VPN(I think it is broadband), do I need to remove this connection to get the wifi to connect properly? It is not connected to the Verizon connection though. Is it possible that this laptop is "locked" to Verizon the way cell phones are?
The Troubleshooter says "Windows can't communicate with the device or resource. (primary DNS server)
This isn't my computer, so I am hesitant to do anything that I am not sure about. Any help would be awesome!

A:HP Mini from Verizon won't connect to wifi

They probably set a Proxy in the unit, either in Internet Explorer, or in the Registry.  Yes, delete the Verizon connection in Internet Options, in the Connections tab.  Check for a proxy in that same tab.

I have Optimum (Cablevision) internet. A Windows XP Professional PC is connected to the Scientific Atlanta DPC2203C cable modem/eMTA. No problems so far.

Having lost my job and trying to save $, I bought a Belkin Desktop Skype phone (Model F1PP010EN-SK) -- the one that connects directly to the modem/router (the idea was so that I wouldn't need to have the computer on all the time to take and make Skype calls). It and does not have wi-fi capability.

When I tried to connect the Skype phone to the ethernet port of the cable modem/eMTA, I realized that there was only one port. So I followed the advice of a friend and bought a Linksys (Cisco) 10/100 5-port Workgroup Switch (model # EZXS55W). I then connected the computer and the Skype phone to it. The computer kept working flawlessly and connecting to the internet, but the Belkin Skype phone attempted for a while to connect to the internet until it displayed a "Network error: Unable to connect to the internet" message.

I thought I found a solution when I found a posting on the Skype forum from someone who had encountered (what I thought was) the same problem: see I have copied and posted the solution below:

It was ok in the past, but now it seems to find the wireless SSID fine and connect to it with the encryption key but it has trouble acquiring an IP address.
I am trying all wi-fi networks available in my neighbourhood and hotspot which i made from my phone and nothing works. Also as i mentioned, the connection it is not working via cable.
I have used this laptot in past also in foreign countries, for example in Vietnam or Cannada and everything worked fine.
Operation system is genuine seller - installed. Win xp service pack 3 home edition.
All other devices, like mobile phone, other laptops are able to connect to my wi-fi. So i don't think there is a problem with my Wi-fi network.
Thanks a lot for your help.

A:Dell Inspiron mini 10 can not connect to internet

You should check your device manager to see what bluetooth you may have installed, and if there are any devices that may need driver updates or are unrecognized by the system. 

As for the IP issue. There are many things that can contribute to this. If you have run adware removal recently, some programs can actually remove or reconfigure components essential for network operation. winsockfix is a common tool used to fix this. Ive gone through it myself (while working on a family member's computer who was experiencing similar issues). 

You may also try uninstalling and then reinstalling your network card in the device manager. Some people suggest checking your password or removing saved passwords, but seeing as you have already tested multiple networks, the issue is not that.

I have just replaced the 802.11b Intel PRO 2100 wireless adapter in my Dell Inspiron 600m laptop computerwith an 802.11b/g Intell PRO 2200BG. I am confused about connecting the antenna cables to the new mini PCI board. Originally, the grey cable was connected to the Main connector and the black cable to the Aux connector. This is how Dell shipped the computer with the 2100. However, the Installation Guide for the new adapter (2200BG) indicates that the black cable should be connected to Main and the grey to Aux. How would I know which connection configuration is correct? Thanks.

P.S. I don't know if this is of any relevance, but the Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG adapter appears to be intended for HP computers. The drivers CD has HP on it and the Installation Guide is "Copyright 2004 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.". Is the antenna cable colour standardised among computer brand manufacturers?

Do you mean USB 2.0 (high speed USB) vs USB 1.1 (low speed)?

Look in Device Manager - Hardware.

Expand the Universal Bus Controllers tree and see if you have an "enhanced" controller.
If not, you only have USB 1.1 (and that is what I would suspect).

If you have a spare PCI slot, a USB 2.0 card would be worth considering.

My windows mobile won't connect to my laptop (vista). The device seems to be installed as it appears in the device manager, also I hear the sound when I plug it in. I've tried my device on XP and it worked fine, so it's a problem with Vista. I've tried a number of times re installing the device and re installing the software I was given (Windows Mobile Device Center).

I've had it connected to another vista computer and it recognized it straight away and worked perfect. The difference is in device manager it says "Microsoft USB Sync" rather than "Toshiba USB Sync 0700", also it says the drivers are working properly.

So it must be an issue with my laptop. Any other USB device seems to work, so it's strange why this is different

Is there a way I can download Microsoft USB Sync drivers? Every link I click tells me to use windows update.

Cannot install this hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware
An error occurred during the installation of this device

The data is invalid

This also occurred recently when I tried to connect a new phone via the usb. Another Ipod i have still works fine when connected via the same cable.

Any suggestions - I have followed all the suggested fixes given under apple support

I am hoping that some of the brilliant people on this site can help me with this bizarre problem.
We have a Dell Desktop with XP and are using AOL Dial-Up (don't laugh) for internet access. We currently have 3 phone lines: the house line, a business line, and a line we just added last week that was supposed to be for internet use only. We have no problems connecting to the internet with the old phone lines, so from this I assume that our modem and phone cable are OK. There is a dial tone, no static, and I can call and send faxes over this line with no problems. The modem will dial out on the line to get access numbers. Problem is, when I go to sign on, there is a dial tone, the modem dials out, and then it gets stuck on step 2 and never connects.
I have been through all the troubleshooting with AOL. AOL blames the phone line, the phone company blames AOL. The only difference between the 3 lines is that the ones that I can get on the internet with have call waiting. Is there any way this is an issue? Is it possible that the line can't handle the 56K modem? I'm at a total loss and don't know where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


A:Can't connect to AOL on one phone line

If it connects on one of the lines, and doesn't connect on the new one, the obvious answer here is the phone line.

To eliminate interior wiring, I'd temporarily connect directly to the NID and eliminate any interior wiring as a possible cause. If that fails, it's pretty much got to be the phone line.

Hey, I recently received a Sony Erricson T610, and a Bluetooth dongle to use with my PC. I have paired the devices and used many of the features available, such as sharing pictures and themes, I have also taken advantage of floAt's Mobile Agent. I recently downloaded an app which would allow you to connect to MSN Messenger using my phone. But I was wondering if it was possible to connect my phone to the Internet using my Bluetooth dongle, so I would not have to use T-Mobile's Internet connection, which can be VERY expensive on PAYG. If anyone has any information on possible ways to do this, or if it is not possible, could you please reply to this article, would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

My brother has an LG smart phone and was trying to get on the internet on his computer (Windows 7) through his phone but he forgot how he did it. He walked away for a few minutes then when he came back there was a message on the computer screen saying "Hi this is Windows and we see that you were having problems connecting to a network so we fixed it for you". And he was on the net, is that normal for windows or is it that someone got into his phone or whatever? I know micrsoft wont do such a thing but windows?

My Windows desktop displays a black screen with 'XT1039' (the version of my Moto G 4G 'phone) at the top with '0 files' and 'Select all' alongside and an empty bar at the bottom with 'Import' and 'Cancel' alongside when I connect the 'phone. I must press the Windows and 'D' keys to return to the desktop, then right-click the top left corner of the screen to close the thumbnail of the window opened by the 'phone. I have become accustomed to the routine. I should prefer it, however, if nothing happened on connection or, preferably, if File Explorer would open or flash, because that is where I want to be, invariably. Is this a Windows issue that can be changed or is it related to the 'phone about which, perhaps, I can do nothing?

A:Want File Explorer when I connect 'phone

You can set autoplay for that device to automatically open File Explorer upon connection. To do so:

Open control panel, then click on Autoplay. This window will come up:

You will see an option to set a default action for removable drives and camera storage. Im not sure which one would apply to your phone, so I would set both to auto open the File Explorer, or in my preference to take no action.

Try this and report back on whether or not it fixes your issue, please.

I have a Centrino laptop running Win XP Pro and a mobile phone (Sony Ericsson T39m...yeah, I know it's a bit old now but it's small and it works), both with IR and bluetooth capability.

Firstly, could someone run through how to set up a bluetooth connection so I can synch my Outlook 2000 contacts with the phone. I have done this once before but can't remember how I did it (which is very frustrating) and I had to completely re-install the OS so any settings I'd originally slaved over have disappeared.

Secondly, on many occasions when I need to connect to the internet there's no wifi access, so it would be useful to connect via the mobile phone. How do I set up the IR and bluetooth connections to allow this - using both dial-up modem access and GPS/GPRS access.

I've followed various instructions (that's a slightly generous description) in the phone and laptop manuals but can't seem to get it to work.

Many thanks.

My Internet suddenly stopped working on my laptop. I can connect fine on my phone, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the router. Nonetheless I've tried restarting the router but it didn't help (I've restarted my laptop too).
The windows troubleshooter said I'm connected fine and there's no problems, but I still can't access any Web pages. The icon on the task bar seems to be a monitor with a square in the top left corner rather than the usual connection bars.
I'm not on flight mode and there doesn't seem to be any physical switches on my laptop. I'm using Windows 10 and my Internet hasn't been working for around 24 hours now.
Hopefully someone is able to help me

A:Can connect to WiFi on phone but not laptop

Press the "Windows Button" and "R" simultaneously.
Typ in cmd
A new window will open.
Typ in cd Desktop
Then typ in ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt
Go to your Desktop and open the file "ipconfig.txt".
Copy and paste the content of that file here.

1. You may wish to omit the "Host Name" part, because of your privacy!! (in case your hostname includes real names of you or someone else)
2. If you do already have a file called "ipconfig.txt" on the Desktop, then you may wish to move that file somewhere else, otherwise it is being replaced.
