Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Come across a really annoying problem within our household. We're with TalkTalk for internet, i'm on a PC connected via WiFi through a dongle on the network. There's also a TV that is causing the internet to drop (internet light go red) whenever the TV Is turned on. Fine with the TV off, the internet goes back on. Been trying to figure this out all day for a while now. Can't find a way to completely DISABLE wifi function on the TV settings. Just can't find it, read manual too.. I've been into the network settings on the TV and there's a few options to connect to the network - Wireless/Wired/WPS and some other 1. The option that is selected is wireless, but i've took all the config out and just put 0.0.0.0 for everything. I don't know if it is trying to connect to the wifi as soon as the TV is switched on, I presume so? So yeah, i've tried all the obvious, even tried changing the SSID and turning WPS off. I know the MAC address of the TV, i've also tried filtering the TV out of the router/gateway via the MAC address but I dunno if i've done it correctly. If anyone can fix this for me i'd appreciate it so much.. The router is a HUAWEI HG533.

Ok. (I don't know how much help I can offer since I'm in USA and you're in UK). 1) From what little I was able to look up, TalkTalk Internet is really small and has a lot of issues regarding on what it delivers to it's customers. 2) The HUAWEI HG533 Router... (from your description of the symptoms with your TV), seems functioning ok, just that the Bandwidth (Internet speed of your ISP-TalkTalk) is too slow to keep up with everything you want to do once you add the Video for the TV. IF you use the Internet cable from your router to the TV, you should have a Faster connection for internet reception (compared to WiFi. Minimum of N-Band on WiFi should suffice for 1 TV and 1 Computer. 5 Devices or more, I recommend a Better Router and Cable your Devices that need the Fastest connection for response, IE. 1-2 computers, TV or Blu-Ray device that provides content to your TV). Best advice - Inquire your Internet Provider about your situation, Possibly change ISP's, Make sure your Router can handle the Usage on WiFi and Cable connect that you require. I have been using a D-Link DIR-655 N-Band Gaming Router (broadcasts WiFI @ 65Mbps/sec, 4 cable connect Ports with 1Gbps speed) for several years now. I've got 2 puters and a Blu-Ray device cable connected, we WiFi our 3Cell phones, a Sony WII and 2 other puters for our kids. We pay a about $25 more a month for faster Internet speed, all runs rather well (Time Warner Cable Turbo, USA, total Internet cost is $65 a month, we don't subscribe to any tv or land-line phone, since we use cell phones).

I've been having the same problem where even hard wiring to the router won't work. I called USR and they had me reset to factory defaults. Now three days later, the same behavior is happening. I reset to factory defaults and it works again but I don't know for how long. Maybe these things just wear out after a while...who know.

You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.

SOURCE: After replacing Cable Modem, D-Link DI-524 Wireless will not work

Did you call Comcast and give them the new MAC address of the Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem? I'm surpised it works at all without doing this first. This is the hardware address of your modem so the world can see you, no one in the world has the same MAC address, they are all different. It's on a sticker on the modem.

Firewire network adapter dongle and install it. where can i find this


Depends upon where you live. MY question is though, why are you not using the built in WIFI to connect to the Internet? It is there for the using. Unless there is something wrong with it, of course. Be advised, unless you have an Internet Account (via an ISP), or are near a free WIFI connections, just having an adapter won't get you connected to the Internet. It's not the same as putting up an antenna and receiving broadcast TV signals. Since we last talked, I looked into a Firewire network adapter. They don't seem to exist. The problem is that the 1394 standard never got up on its own two feet, as the USB 2.0/3.0 overwhelmed it. SO, if you are looking for an external WIFI adapter, you'll most likely need a USB dongle. Sites like Newegg.com and TigerDirect.com can assist you. You can even get wireless adapters at your local Walmart!

My jvc smart tv is displaying wifi dongle detected and is not connecting to my Internet and it keep showing on the TV is quite frustrating thanks


You can stop the display about the issue via ''settings''. To actually connect to the internet you need to enter your wifi security code. It should ask you for it, but it may only ask for it if you try to connect via the ''settings'' menu.

How can I add an external WiFi Donegal to a median life pad


WiFi dongles are developed for PC usage. A tablet, does not redirect internet info to or from a USB connector. For every USB device you need a driver and a program on a computer. As long as you don't have the programs or app for any dongle, no use to connect any dongle to any tablet.

I wanted to search the web on the compaq armada 3500 that i got and was wondering where the cable goes and if it even gets internet


hi yes you should be able to connect a wifi dongle via the usb port on the side for your internet connection, you would have to buy a pcmcia network card if you want network connection to internet through your modem, so if you have wifi router/modem then a dongle would be better..hope this helps

I think i have a virus


This is probably not a virus. More likely a driver misconfiguration.
Try plugging the dongle only after your computer is turned on and windows has already started.
If this does not help, please elaborate on the type of the dongle? is it a wifi network card or a cellular modem?
