Generally, host file editing is useful to fix iTunes error 3194, you need make sure you did it right:
Step 1. For Windows, navigate to C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/ and find the file that's named "hosts". For Mac, the file is in /etc/
Step 2. Open the file in Notepad (or any other text editing software) (for Windows users, open this with Administrator Privileges). You'll mostly have this line at the bottom of the file: 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
Step 3. Either comment this line out by typing a single '#' (without the quotes) in front of the line (before 74) or remove the line entirely.
Step 4. Now, save the hosts file and then try updating your iPhone through iTunes. In most cases, the error shouldn't pop up now.
IF doing as above, still not working, you can change another iTunes backup recovery tool as an alternative. Personally, I recommend PhoneRescue to help you restore iPhone from iTunes backup.

Whenever there is an ios update offered, Apple will give enough time to the public to install the update. When they decide that there has been ample time to do so, they stop writing the certificates that allow access to the older updates for security reasons along with others. It's still possible to do it with an iphone 4 though because it's a hardware thing that apple can[t fix with a software update.

SOURCE: My wifi doesn't connect to

Ad-hoc is a computer to computer connection.
You need to change the wireless configuration to Access Point (Infrastructure) mode with encryption.

Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

SOURCE: my iphone does not turn

If the ios 5 is in beta. That means that it's in Test mode. If it keeps messing up and dying. It's not ready yet.

Beta = Test

So the best you can do is offer feedback to Apple over it, then restore your phone back the the latest ios 4 for the time being, and wait for ios 5 to get out of Beta mode

I'm receivingonmy LG Rumor Touch vm510 Error code - RTSP 403 ?? What is it and what can I do with it now ?


RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) 403 is the error code for forbidden ie. the page you are trying to access is forbidden

Causes of the 403 error are as follows

A third-party program: download accelerator, firewall or anti-virus is preventing you from connecting to a particular site.
A windows update site control, which is usually installed on your computer, may be corrupt or is missing.
The system host file may be missing or not properly configured.
Files needed for Internet Explorer to work may be damaged or missing.

How you can fix the error 403

1. Disable any recently installed programs. The programs I am referring to here are the programs mentioned above: accelerators, anti-virus and/or firewall. You may want to disable each one individually and test the page. If you disable all of them at once and it fixes the problem, you won't be able to tell which one was causing the issue. But, by disabling each one and testing you may be able to narrow down the culprit program.

2. Reset Host file to default. If you develop websites and are constantly updating this file, it's possible that you added settings that is causing your current issue. A suggestion here is to reset the host to it's original configuration. You may want to make a copy before reverting to the original settings. You may want to refer to these settings later or individually add them to the new host file. Follow this Microsoft article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034 and click the Fix Me option. This will set the host file back to it's default settings.

Itunes cannot open . error code is -50. even after reinstalling everything new.


Do you have Norton Security? It could be blocking it.
Uninstall Norton and try AVG antivirus. Norton is a horrible program, I've had bad experiences.
Or disable any antivirus or firewall you have and try running iTunes.
Or try this.
1. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> iTunes --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
2. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> QuickTime --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
3. Go to My Computer --> Local Disc --> Program Files. Once in Program Files you will see the iTunes and QuickTime folder and you will want to delete the iTunes folder and the QuickTime folder. Right click on the iTunes folder and select delete and confirm the deletion. Do the same for QuickTime.
4. Restart your computer
5. Disable all features of any anti-virus program such as Norton or McAfee
6. Open Internet Explorer or which ever internet program you use and go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and download the iTunes+QuickTime program. *Do not do any modifications in the download of the program.* Just download the program by doing the usual "Next" clicking.
7. Once iTunes is finished downloading, double click on the Shortcut Icon on the desktop. iTunes should open with a large square box and you have to click "Agree."
Should be good to go.

How to edit configuration .ini file to stop avg turning firewall off


If your avg is AVG Anti-Virus plus Firewall Edition, then you should not be running Windows Firewall as running two firewalls can cause conflicts and for sure adds an unnecessary extra load on your PC. This also applies for trying to run two anti-virus products together. Besides the extra load, the conflict can bring the PC to a crawl.

I give the order print and nothing happenes


Have you tried disabling the anti-virus, will it print? If not, uninstall the Lexmark software properly by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > All Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Then, restart pc. I suggest you install the updated driver available for download in the Lexmark website (I assume you have the Lexmark X7170 and your computer's running on Windows XP). Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/dxFJ36. Download the software. When installing, just to make sure, disable any firewall and your anti-virus temporarily. For the fax and the scan software, you can use the installation cd to install them back. Leave a comment if you need more assistance. Thanks.

The only way to get a reliable anti-virus is to purchase. Use the control panel - add/remove and uninstall any avg programs. Then run msconfig - startup and disable any avg program. Reboot. See what happens. Purchase an anti-virus and load that.
