I'm using Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2 installed. I'm not sure how or why this happened but lately, I have noticed that, whenever I sign off my connection and later restart it, Tools-->Internet Options-->Connections is always set to "Never dial a connection". This option prevents me from either connecting to the internet or downloading any new e-mail until I change it to either "Dial whenever a network connection is not present" or "Always dial my default connection". Is there any way I can permanently set my connections to one of these two options? Thanks for any advice.
Hi, I have a Cisco wireless router, and my broadband provider is BeThere. I use a Sony Vaio laptop to connect to the wireless router. It has Windows Vista Home Premium installed. Signal strength is excellent, and the laptop is often only 2 metres from the router. However, I often cannot see the wireless network that I use. Unless I refresh the devices list a few times. Other times, I can connect and use the Internet, but after a few minutes my connection status changes to "local only". Sometimes it will reconnect again on its own and give me internet access. Sometimes I need to reconnect manually. How can I make the connection more stable? If I use a cable to connect to the router everything works fine. Thanks, Bernard.
Since having Tiscali fit a new box two days ago ( this serves TV, Broadband and telephone) my computer keeps losing internet connection. It is not a wireless connection and Tiscali say it is not their problem. They say it is either a new network card needed or it is a software problem. I am very sceptical of all this as all was well until they arrived. Does anyone know how I can prove it is not my computer at fault which is what Tiscali are telling me. ?? Help -- Benen157
I running 2003 SBS network with one main domain controller/exchange server and 10 desktops. We have firewall provided by our ISP and that acting as a DHCP server. However, network computers had problems connecting to a domain, so wee added dns record manually to each desktop. Ie noticed that the main server keeps losing internet connection every now and then and all the computers with manual dns record as well. However, we have tried to work this problem around by manually adding the gateway as well, but the problem persisted. If you take those records and leave the computers with dhcp settings internet will work,but eventually outlook will fail due to not being able to retrieve files from exchange and itl take long long time to load users profile when trying to login. Is there any solutin to this problem?
