How did u make irt work??
i dunno what else to do!!
Hi, The other thing was that there was a fault on the computer I just purchased. I took it to the store where they hooked it up straight away using their cable modem & it came online then went back off. This happened repeatedly & when it did I was advised it was probably because important updates haven't yet been added to the machine which I thought was odd as a cause.
I stressed that there is a fault with the machine & I would rather an exchange or be allowed to purchase a different machine or get my money back! The last thing they tried at the Computer store was to get it back online & download the 'key updates' thinking that would solve my problem once & for all...but..the computer wouldn't download any files at all!
I'm glad that happened because straight away they replaced my machine with a new one & I have had no problems getting online. I also made sure that I made my connection direct to my cable modem via an ethernet cable & Windows 7 picked up the connection automatically & I was online with no problems at all.
The other thing I have found out is that if I buy a router, it must be one for a cable modem - Cisco linksys have them & I have seen it in action...no problems at all & you get a wireless connection. I previously bought 2 routers which gave me problems as after about 20 mins, it dropped the connection.
