Talk Talk router, lost connection

Q: Talk Talk router, lost connection

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.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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

Hi,

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.

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,
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.

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)

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.

A:Getting Xbox to talk to Trendnet wired router

So I guess you are trying to stream media and such. Depending on the version of OS you are running you may have to give rights for the xbox to talk over network. Such as in Windows 7 sharing and advance options go to meadia sharing and allow the Xbox to be seen by everyone. What are you trying to accomplish fully?

Hi,

I know this has been asked plenty of times but i thought i might create a new thread because it is slightly different from the other problems.

I've got a friend who has got a modem/router(MR) that has another router (R) connected. I've got MR doing the DHCP and is on the IP address 192.168.0.1. I've allocated IP addresses between 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.50 for DHCP.

I've set R to recieve its IP address from MR. When i open up the web browser interface for MR and view the DHCP allocations, it says that R has IP address 192.168.0.2.

I also have a workstation (PC) connected to MR and generally gets IP address of 192.168.0.3.

From PC, i can ping MR but not R.

I also have a Multi-Funciton Device (MFD) that is set to DHCP and attached to R. I've noticed that MFD gets the IP address of 192.168.1.2 not and an IP address of 192.168.0.x (as it should if MR was doing DHCP).

I can not ping MFD from PC as well.

I tried setting up a static route in MR so that PC would know how to get to the 192.168.1.x range. My input was:

destination: 192.168.1.0
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.2

the reason gateway being 192.168.0.2 was because that was the IP address given to R by MR (as per the DHCP allocation table). Have i got this right?

So, the question overall is, if both MR and R are giving out DHCP, how do i get devices on each IP address range to talk to each other? ie, how do i get PC to talk to MFD if they are on different ranges?

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.

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.

I have 2 basic USB ports as part of the Abit motherboard (Abit KX-333) that I installed when building this computer. On the motherboard there is the option for attaching a plug that adds 2 more USB ports in the back which I have done.

Within the Device Manage I have this listed in this order:
Universal Serial Bus controllers

Generic USB Hub = Generic USB Hub
USB Composite Device = Standard USB Host Controller (Keyboard)
USB Root Hub = Standard USB Host Controller
USB Root Hub = Standard USB Host Controller
VIA USB Universal Host Controller = VIA Technologies
VIA USB Universal Host Controller = VIA Technologies

Only the USB Composite Device has "Keyboard" listed as what it goes to. Nothing else is listed as working with a specific USB device, and beside the Lexmark printer I have my mouse and scanner using USB ports.

Included with this printer is a flashcard reader as a separate "device". On my taskbar I have 2 devices working, the printer and the card reader. Neither one is recognized until I unplug and replug the usb cable.

Sun's Cobalt Linux Servers Open to Attack


Today, Sun and CERT announced that many of Sun's Cobalt RaQ 4 Linux servers can be completely taken over by a local user or via the Internet. Ironically, the vulnerability is only present if the vendor's optional "Security Hardening Package" is installed. The package is quite popular and is installed on a large percentage of these servers.

The vulnerability is caused by a flaw in the input validation of a CGI (common gateway interface) script. The script is intended to allow remote administration of the server via a Web browser.

Sun reports that, at present, there's no workaround for the hole. The only way to close it is to remove the Security Hardening Package, which provides protection against (among other things) buffer overflows and port scanning. The protection is lost when the package is removed.

I have an external modem that recently, just stopped working. The modem lights come on, and it works on other computers. I thought it may have been the port, but a serial mouse works fine. Is my modem all of the sudden mad at my computer?

Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Modem Can't Talk

Did you change any hardware, any settings, etc.? What operating system?

I have an ASUS Xonar DX Sound Card, Creative Speakers with subwoofer and a Plantronics Headset. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1. My computer also has RealTek HD Audio sound software.

I can listen on Ventrillo just fine, but when I push the button I've selected for push-to-talk, and try to talk on Vent, my sound icon lights up so everyone knows I am trying to talk, but everyone always says they cannot hear a sound from me.

I've tried running Ventrillo both in, and out of, administrator mode. I've triple checked and then triple checked again to make sure my microphone is not muted. I've tried plugging a regular vanilla microphone into my sound card without using the Plantronics Headset. I've tried using the headset alone without the speakers to listen. Everything is the same. I hear everyone just fine, and when I try to talk, they all see the icon light up that shows I am trying to talk, but they all say they don't hear me say anything.

Any other information you need on my hardware/software setup please ask and I will provide.

I use Ventrillo for World of Warcraft, it is absolutely mandatory for endgame content, and I am being told more and more impatiently that either I get it fixed or I will be permanently excluded from endgame content.

Thanks,
--NYC

Hi to all. I have Windows XP Prof. I badly want to use my microphone , the very annoying thing is that a neighbour came in and adjusted ALL the controls ie. Mic enabled, Mic volume on FULL, he went on to several controls and then went on to Start, programs, accessories, entertainment, sound recorder! Then he plugged the mic in turned it on and used the recorder test box! It worked fine,as he spoke the green line moved and he recorded a message!
Well it will not work now, I have done everything that he did!
Please help. I need to talk to my LOVER and tell her that my Wife said I must not see her anymore! Bye. Norman
