Cant get Talk talk wireless connected

Q: Cant get Talk talk wireless connected

Hi,

I have recently installed Talk Talk on my laptop. I went through the instillation CD and it seemed to go OK. The laptop will connect if hard wired through the router but wont connect wirelessly. It doesnít even detect a wireless connection. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it twice to make sure.

I have detailed the error message I received from talk talk below.

The laptop is a Toshiba personal computer Intel Celeron , 1.40GHZ, 1.40GHZ 480 M of RAM

The router is a Huawei Wireless HG520

These are the settings I received from talk talk when i rang.

1. VCI - 38
2. PTI - 0
3. Connection type - PPPoA
4. Encapsulation mode - VCMUX
5. ADSL Modulation - Auto/G.DMT/ANSI/ T 1.413
6.Modulation type - Auto/G.DMT
7. Authentication - CHAP
8. IP Address - automatic or dynamic
9. Primary DNS - 62.24.199.13
10. Secondary DNS 62.24.199.23

I donít know if these are the settings on my laptop coz I donít know how to check them.
The info below the line is what i got from Talk Talk help.

Hi,
I am unable to connect my new wireless lappy to my local (Talk Talk broadband) connection I use for my desktop.
Is Vista wireless compatible with Talk Talk broadband? Doesn't seem to be aware of that connection...

Also where do I obtain key 'security key or passphrase'

Im sure this is obvious but I need help as Im no good at this

thanks

A:Wireless Vista laptop connection to Talk Talk

How does your desktop connect, are you using a router or modem or what. We need more information to be able to help you.

What operating system does the desktop use and what security programs do you have installed on both your machines, it could be the firewall blocking things or it could be something else.

Post back with as much information as you can get about your machines and the way you connect to the internet and someone should be able to help you.

I am connecting a laptop with a pc both running xp home sp 2. Pc has linksys pci net adap and laptop has voyager 1065 card. They both claim to be connected to the ad hoc system and show in 'wireless connections' as all ok in terms of transmitting data. But neither of them seems to be able to receive data. I have disabled firewalls and enabled file sharing. But to no avail. They cannot see each other in 'workgroup computers'. Before I fitted the linksys pci card, the pc was using a voyager usb adapter 1055 and it worked fine.

Hi,
I am a new member and I have a weird problem with Talk Talk. Moved into new flat and while we are waiting for our internet to be connected(?) our neighbour has told us we can use his Tallk Talk wifi which is unlimited and gave us the necessary code to connect. My wife's Xperia phone connected immediately and works fine on this connection. Her laptop (on Vista) however connected immediately but keeps coming up as Local Access only and won't open any web pages at all. My netbook (which is on XP) also connected immediately and show full connection at 54Mbps but also will not connect to any websites.
To further compound my frustration, both laptops will connect using my t MOBILE dongle and they work fine on that 7.2 Mbps connection. Also another neighbour has BT and both laptops will connect to the openzone from that (using my son'e log in as he is with BT) and open websites through that.
Does anyone have any ideas? I am not really confident enough to start deleting things and down loading new unless I know exactly what to do.

Thanks

Having just purchased a new computer and set up my Talk Talk router, I am having serious issues setting up Outlook Express. I have spoken to Talk Talk for assistance having eventually got through to their 2nd line support but as I have a google mail E Mail address they were less than helpful. I have everything set up as per google mail help centre instructions other than incoming mail server (POP3) which is set as mail.talktalk.net. I can receive E Mails but not send. Everytime I attempt to send I receive the following error:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.googlemail.com', Server: 'mail.talktalk.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I had AVG free edition installed by the manufacturer of the computer prior to receiving it. As a computing novice I am unsure if this a possible problem; could it be?

Help!!
 

A:Solved: Outlook Express and Talk Talk

AVG could be a potenial problem if it is scanning emails.
Some have problems right from the start others don't have
any for months and then suddenly do. Email scanning is
not necessary.
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3
http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tutorials/email-scanning/index.htm

At the very least turn the scanning off. The best
solution is to uninstall AVG and see if you can install
using the custom installation. At that point choose to
leave out the email scanning.

For the gmail account information.
Try these settings first and see if they work - no Talk Talk settings.
These are US settings, if you are in the UK or elsewhere,
check the gmail for your area to make sure these are the ports used.
It appears you used Port 25 and that is the cause of that error.

Sever Tab
POP3 incoming mail: pop.gmail.com
SMTP outgoing mail: smtp.gmail.com
Also put a check mark in My server requires authentication

Check Always connect to this account using

Has anyone suffered prolonged loss of connection using a talktalk wifi bband router? (ISP- aol) If so, what explanations were offered by aol?

I've got an aol engineer visiting Thurs.to examine connection loss (since last Weds). But I'm convinced the problem is with the router. But from the tone of the aol help man's questions I suspect he's already briefed his engineer to do his best to represent the problem as being either with my computer or positioning of router/filters/condition of wall-sockets - usual getouts.

The talktalk router is neww, issued Feb 12, after my original router, speedtouch, started suffering idle timeouts every day.

Can anyone advise on the most often-used excuses given my wifi engineers so I can counter them and convince the engineer to do an unbaised examination? Or could I be wrong and there really is a technical problem with my line or connections. Before the engr comes I want to be prepared to fend off ******** and recognize genuine cause-suggestions.

Any replies appreciated : but I have to use comp at local library so I shan't be able to respond promptly.
 

A:Talk Talk router, lost connection

Without further detail, it is really impossible to give an opinion.
If you have another computer - with wireless, or by using a wireless usb try that and if that does not lose the signal, it is a fair bet it something with the setup on this computer - is it not.

Sometimes changing the wireless channel may improve the result.
If some other local equipment is using the same channel that could cause the loss of signal.

I am sure it is best to wait until the engineer has been seen as it only 2 days or so
I've got an aol engineer visiting ThursClick to expand...

and then if you still have problems, and he has checked the broadband service to your property, please post back

I recently hit upon a bug that has been plaguing me for quite some time and I am sure that I am not the only one that has run into this. I tried to post the bug and its fix to the google help forum but couldn't the topic/thread section was no longer accepting new additions or replies (???).

Moving on. I found that if you have another program running like a movie player (VLC, MPC Star, media player etc... or iTunes, etc...) and try to make a call with google talk you won't hear anything (the other party gets the call though, as I learned, "WHY THE **** DO YOU RING 6 TIMES GRRR....") and have to try the call again and again an it's touch and go as to whether it ever works. Well close any other programs that are running that also output sound and the problem should go away.

Hope this helps someone searching for a possible answer, when I was I couldn't find anything that resembled this one. That is why I am posting it.

I'm at a friends house and they were explaining how she had got rid of her antivirus software because of this thing called Talk Talk HomeGuard. Antivirus software is a very importent thing on a computer and I knew that this was a BAD idea. I also read on the TalkTalk faq that:

_________________________________________________________________Will Virus Alerts replace the need for Anti-Virus software?

No, they complement each other. Virus Alerts extends protection to devices unable to use traditional Anti-Virus software as they access websites. i.e. smartphones or games consoles.

Hi

I have setup a Speedtouch Wireless Router 585 for my sister...
The Talk Talk connection works fine on her modem, but when we try the router
it says its connected and has IP address and DNS Server address's but no internet
comes through, the lights are green indicating all is fine and conectivity test says all is OK
BUT it supposed to have...

DSL
ATM
Ethernet
PPP
IP
Internet

but Ethernet is completely missing from the line up... the manual shows what a perfect running conection should be and its all ok except for the Ethernet entry missing completley?

The laptop connects @ 100Mbps no probs via Ethernet and we can access the router settings via ethernet so that indicates that there isnt any problem with the LAN connection

when she trys to access the internet the internet light flashes to indicate activity but nothing happens..

Pings all fail...

what could be the problem?

we have the right username and password in and if any of the config were incorrect it wouldnt connect at all would it?

I have it set as so...
PPPoA (VCMUX or VCBASED)
VPI: 0
VCI: 38
Authentication: CHAP

are these correct?

it displays this below which im unsure about as it didnt say that on my IPstream connection (she on Talk Talk LLu maybe thats why i dunno)

OK so awhile ago my Pipex account swapped to talk talk since then I was getting disconnect anywhere from every 5 minutes to an hour. I solved this problem buy swapping from a Speedtouch 330 to a netgear N300 DNG2200.

now my connection is perfectly stable I haven't had a disconnect since I swapped which has been a very long time. However since the change my down speed has gone from somewhere around 250kb/s to 120kb/s (so says steam). I think this has something to do with the 330 using G DMT rather then ADSL, but tbh I don't really know. so is there anyway I can reclaim my lost speed I know the line is capable off? with going back to the frustration of repeated disconnects (i had to restart computer on every disconnect because it wouldnt redial otherwise )

Hi
For better or worse TakTalk is my ISP. They are offering a free complete security package called HomeSafe.
I have used AVG free for many years with no problems of which I am aware. For some time I used Zone alarm firewall but a couple of years ago I switched to The Microsoft firewall. Again I have not been aware of any problems.
Would it be advantageous to switch to HomeSafe or am I better off staying with the protection which has served me well?
Your views would be appreciated.

Please help, I've got myself int a muddle and I'm getting chest pains
 

A:Can't get a PC to talk to a wireless network

Turn of any encryption on the AP until you get it working.

Set the channel used by the AP manually to 6 or 11. If possible, set the channel manually on the client side too.

Disable any proprietary wireless "acceleration" technologies on the AP.

Make sure you haven't left anything unconfigured on the AP. It may be that the AP comes with a very strict security out of the box and you have to manaully set up everything.

Disable any software firewalls on the client. Including the gay Windows Firewall. Make sure you have the wireless services enabled in Windows if you are not using some special software to connect.

I have two computers both with Belkin 54g wireless network cards, one using WinXP and one Win98SE. Both the PCI cards are installed ok (although I did have to download a driver upgrade from Belkin for the Win98 one to work, thanks to HumanShame). In the system tray, I can see the TV-shaped icon with a red center on both PCs. If I double-click on this I get the utility to set up all the detail, but sadly it lists no available networks so I can't do anything else.

I thought I could connect two PCs with wireless network cards on an ad-hoc basis like this. The two PCs are in two rooms, one above the other, so are not too far apart.

I have set up static IP address's on both machines.
When the machines are connected by my wired network they function fine.

Please can someone help and explain something to a complete numpty

Started off using an Origo AR 8400 Modem/Router for 2 wired PCs - which worked perfectly. We got a laptop and wanted to go wireless so bought a Linksys WRK54G wireless router. I plugged the Internet port on the Linksys into the one of the ethernet ports on the Origo and left the wired PC into the Origo - the internet worked fined on 2 wireless and 1 wired PC. BUT also wanted to network the 3 computers so plugged a cable between one of the ethernet ports on each router - this worked OK too and now had internet and could share files & printers
Firstly does that sound like the right way to do things?

With it set up as above the two routers used to go crazy sometimes and all the lights would flash quickly and there'd be no connection anywhere. This is solved by switching off/back on the routers.

Now fiddling around with it today to sort out another problem it seems I don't need the internet cable plugged in - with it like this I can't get into the Linksys's settings using 192.168.1.1

Please could someone tell me the proper way to do it!!

A:Please Talk Me Through How To Set Up A Wireless Network Using 2 Routers

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

As it stands now, I have no desire to purchase windows 7. I have purchased 2 Vista PCs since its release, 1 32 bit and 1 64 bit and have had problems with neither, in fact I much prefer vista over XP. I just bought a gaming rig in June (I was unaware of windows 7 and the cutoff date for free upgrade). And I am not finding any reason to spend $120 on the upgrade. What makes windows 7 better than vista? Because I find very few things that would make it worth the upgrade.

A:Talk me into it

Well dude it's whatever you make it out to be. If you've tested it before, it's really nice, to be honest. You can shuffle pictures as a slideshow(which makes your background change to your favorite pictures) it's faster than Vista, and on top of that, it's looks nice as well as it performs.

But don't take my word for it. /laugh

Hiya

Are you using a proxy? If not, the person you're contacting may.

This is where to look:

I lost the charging cable for my laptop and I have no idea what kind it is other than Pavilion. I have looked at every single article that tells you how to find the serial number and I still cannot find it and nothing lets you ask anything unless you have all this information! I need to know what type of cable to order so I can start using it again! At this point after spending an hour researching, I'm just about to order one and hope it's right.

I was using the Dv7 doing 3D modeling with 2 models at the same time on my screen. I checked the temps at the time....87 Degrees Celegrade!!! I was like no way this is happening. I am assuming that this is bad...but does anyone have any suggestions on how to possibly cool this down or is it acceptable at times to have this happen when I am modeling? I need to get some canned air to clean it out some so that may make a difference.

Thanks in advance.

Morning.
I just hooked up a Netgear DS104 Hub. Both machines access the internet with no problem. The "A" machine sees itself but will not see the "B" machine. Can not ping the "B" machine from the "A" machine. The "B" computer sees both but I get "is not accessible" error message when I try to access the "A" computer. When I click on the "B" computer icon using the "B" computer I get a blank explorer window.
I have TCP/IP and NetBEUI installed. I tried first with just TCP/IP; didn't work. The Workgroup names are identical; the Windows Logon is the same, File and Print Sharing is checked on both machines.
I'm using Win98 SE on both computers.

I tried hooking up a Netgear RT-314 Router but had the same problems. Netgear tech. support told me that as long as both computers accessed the internet, they didn't care about the intranet. Thank you Netgear. That router is new and is now for sale: BEST offer; you pay shipping.

For one reason or another, I just have not taken the plunge into music download services yet, but after finding that iTunes has many of my favorite songs, I'm interested in them.
Before I dive in though, a few questions....

After you purchase and download your song, does it stay on your hard drive as an MP3 file? I thought I hard someone say that you can only play it through iTunes. Also can it be burned to disc?

3 Malware comes in by scripting code
4 Malware comes in Active- X

5 browser highjacking comes in by HTML

Great come back guys for "affordable tech support" Dan O has no sense of humor, but I guess that's why he gets paid the big bucks huh lol. Anyway, I am looking to buy one of those programs that lets you speak rather than type. I want to stay 100% Microsoft, and there are so many to choose from. Are they really perfected yet re: voice recognition ect., or should I wait. Any feed back greatly accepted. Price is not of great concern, just want the best. BTW thanks to all who helped me buy my APC backup it's great, love it. You guys and gals are great.

hi there

I think it is time that the computer should be able to PERFECTLY understand the human through speech and respond back to him, like in movies (iron man even flubber ).
I used the speech recognition software in vista but it still needs loads of improvement.

So i was wondering if any of you know about any software which helps in doing this, or atleast something that can make the PC have cool conversations with you and read texts with you (i know about narrator, very robotic).

Eagerly waiting for any discussions regarding this.

A:PC able to talk and listen

Although great improvements have been made with speech recognition, home computers currently don't have the capacity to comprehend fully spoken language. For a start off, words can have a slightly different meaning depending on how it is pronounced, and the context in which it is used. In addition, the human brain can recognise the same word when pronounced in many different ways by people with differing accents and dialogue inflections. Unless the speech recognition system in a computer has already learnt the word, and the ways that it may be pronounced, it cannot understand a word if asked to recognise it through audio input. Even if it does know the word, it might not recognise it if it comes in a different accent and inflection.

As regards the computer outputting speech, it is currently very robotic because the number of voices available is very limited. Although the pitch and speed can be varied, this usually affects all of what is being output by the same amount, unlike normal human speech which can change in pitch and speed dynamically. Whilst certain punctuation can make the pitch of the word prior to it rise or fall, the end result is still very much robotic.

Unfortunately, home computers simply don't have the memory capacity or resources in order to be able to speak and to understand speech in the same way as a human brain can. Mainframe computers fair better because they have more memory and resources available, in addition to more processing power thanks to th... Read more

with all the talk of 3D coming I was wondering if a monitor I came into (free) a Sony Trinitron CPD-G520 ~ 21" flat screen would be worth while trying to fix? I flicked emails to "Sony's qualified repairer" who gave me a rough quote (unseen - it's too big for me to carry on public transport 30kg/66lb2oz) $450 for one part OR $45 for the other. The reason for raising the query is that council has banned 'ewaste' and to dispose it will cost $65 so that makes the $45 option good value and also gives cudos for recycling. I described the problem as horizontal rain see attached jpg(s) (Multiscan & Multiscan2). I believe the parts the techie was referring to are the $450 ?modulator? (jpg. SonyMultiScanTrinitron CRT) and the $45 ?tube? (jpg. SonyMultiScanTrinitron G520).

Resolution is; Horizontal 2048 dots Vertical 1536 lines
Input is; Analog RGB or SYNC signal
Power consumption is; 135W

There are no other Self diagnostic symptoms ie. normal functions present
So assuming this is correct (self diagnostics) please any ideas where I could purchase this part?

All the experienced users on this forum seem to agree; a good, strong PSU is the foundation to healthy computing. Reviews can sometimes be informative, or sometimes hoopla... but I wanted to share this review because it not only rated 4 quality PSUs, but had some discussion about what to look for and why.
