I don`t want to change my ISP which is BT. I have been using BT Yahoo with Windows Mail more or less satisfactorily for some time but I have a new computer and have upgraded to Windows 7. I don`t like Windows Live Mail and am having trouble connecting this service to my present free BT Yahoo Account. In addition BT is severing connection with Yahoo and it is not at all clear what the result will be.

Windows Live Mail is refusing to send emails because of a problem with SSL connections. It doesn`t seem to make any difference whether I tick the boxes or not because SOME emails need SSL and some don`t.

My own feeling is best way out is to get a paid Yahoo account but I am not sure what will happen to my BT emails if I do that. I have copies of all the ones that matter on the backup Vista hard drive we took out of the computer so that is not too much of a problem provided I copy any recent emails that matter.

Could I still use the BT email address ? Most of the info on the web is for people who want to leave BT broadband. I share this connection with my husband and have no wish to change the ISP.

Can anyone explain my options ? I have just about got my head round the difference between an ISP, and Email Service Provider and an Email "Client" . I am interested in the Yahoo Paid Account because it would enable me to forward emails off the web based site and this seems more secure to me.

The motherboard on my T460s died and Lenovo directed me to a local warranty repair shop that obtained and installed the new board. Now this appears on powerup:2200: machine type and serial number are invalidI understand this can only be resolved by a dealer/warranty provider using a special maintenance disk. But my warranty provider does not have the disk and could not get one from Lenovo. He is asking his company owner to look into this with no time frame offered as to how long this process may take. Why does Lenovo send this fellow a new replacement motherboard yet not provide him with the tools (in this case, the maintenance disk) to complete the job? And I certainly hope the maintenance disk is self-contained, as my Lenovo will boot Windows from USB but is running GNU/Linux. In the mean time, I wait, experience the annoying beep and message on startup, and pray that it doesn't include some time bomb that erases my disk and sprays the room with red paint after some timeout occurs when running without a verified identity.

Hi

I've been looking at different internet providers, im currently on 2mb and that has been fine but I thought I would change since ive been with AOL for YEARS!

I checked Broadband.co.uk and they said Be Broadband was best for my area and I would get up to 6MB for my area but im a bit confused with the different packages -

one has a 12 month contract package for up to 8MB and the other up to 24mb, no contract and 1 static IP......

I know there is no point in the second one but what does it mean 1 static IP??

At the risk of sounding like I'm ducking your question, I would suggest that you direct these questions to the sales person at the ISP. I suggest this because I suspect that you are going to find that there are other questions that you will want answers to.

Hi,

I want to use the IPTV technology to transmit some channels. Therefore I consider to become full service provider. For my purpose I see possibilities in the market.

However I am not computer engineer, so, it is quite difficult to make some more progress

Can someone suggest me something about this, maybe there are companies that can help a lot, like selling a complete servers for service providers.

Second question is can I transmit by using servers about 5Mbps to downloaders ( the users should not notice it too much in the sense they should have enough bandwidth for other things , e.g. when someone has 30 Mbps for downloading) .
 

A:Service Provider

You want to look at companies that sell dedicated servers. Basically, you rent the server, put whatever applications you want on it, and they provide the data center and Tier I Internet connection. Optionally, you can go with a colocation provider. It's very similar, except you provide the servers, which you put in a partial rack (meaning you're buying rackmount servers) or cage at their data center. This does require you to be close to the data center, since they won't touch your servers for any reason unless you pay them (it's know as "remote hands"), and then only to reset, power cycle, or plug/unplug something. If you rent a server, it data center could be located anywhere in the world since you will only access it remotely.

The big cost is going to be bandwidth. IPTV is a very bandwidth-intensive service, and in either case, you pay for every data packet received or transmitted from the server. The total bandwidth required is equal the number of concurrent downloaders. If ten people are downloading at 5Mbps, you are feeding 50Mbps. If a hundred people are downloading at 5Mbps, you are feeding at 500Mbps.

After a storm a couple of days ago, we lost all internet service. I contacted my ISP (over and over...) and have been told that their remote checks reveal that we ARE geting service.
 
All the lights on the cable modem are on. The operator was able to 'refresh' it remotely.
 
We have tried connecting two different laptops directly to the modem (bypassing the WIFI) with an ethernet cable, and neither was able to access the internet. We have tried with 5 wireless devices (after reconnecting the wireless router) and cannot access the internet; however, the wireless network DOES show up.
 
A windows 8 diagnostic indicated that the computer was getting no IP address.
 
The ISP is adamant that this is OUR problem. I will be happy to provide more details, but I am not a techie and don't know where to start. Can anyone please help?? My thought is that the modem is not working properly...
 
Thanks!

A:I have No Internet Service though my Provider says I do

Sure does sound like a modem problem. 
 
Have you tried a long power cycle (unplug the modem for 30 minutes, then plug it back in) or a hard reset (see the modem manual)?  Do you own the modem or is it provided by the ISP?  If the ISP owns the modem, then insist they replace it.

I thought I would try to come into the current century and maybe switch my internet service provider from the one I signed up for in 1992 (wow, the Internet was available way back then . . . ?).

As I begin to shop around, I got to wondering, if I allow my current provider service to lapse, will I still have access to my current email address or will I need to change? I guess I've heard differing opinions on this. It seems unreasonable for my provider to maintain my account, since those inbound/outbound message (or maybe just the inbound ones) reside on the provider's server, until I access them, right? Alternately, it almost seems like more trouble to close that email account, than to just leave it, on the hopes that the customer might return one day.

Clearly, I don't want to continue to pay for two providers, and one just to maintain my existing email address. What's the definitive word on that?
 

A:Changing Internet Provider - Email Address Cancelled?

The definitive word is that it depends. AOL, for example, now allows you to keep your email address. With most ISPs, maybe all other ones, your email, web site, etc., are gone the day you stop paying.

By the time we finish configuring to use our backup ISP, all work that are not save on the server would have already been lost. And yes, some of our server are off site as we have many branches.

If so, I have another problem. We have multiple email server and web server that are serving different purposes.

About 3 or 4 months ago I switched to a new internet provider whom also sent me a new modem. Problem is, is that this new modem prevents my burglar alarm's dial out alert system from contacting my nominated phone numbers during an activation/test. If I turn off the modem there is no problem, the alarm works perfectly.
This would be fine except that my brother in law lives next door and uses my internet connection so it is inconvenient if I'm away and have to switch the modem off to have the alarm fully functional.

Prior to the provider change over I was using a 3rd party TP-Link TD-W8951ND modem with my prior service provider. This modem caused no problems at all with the function of the burglar alarm when left on.

Therefore, I would like to use the TP-Link modem again but I can't get it to work on the new service. From memory, the modem that was supplied by the new provider was basically 'plug and play' and all I did was just cable it in and there was no keyboard work required. This is why I don't know why the TP modem doesn't work since I didn't change anything.
Evidently, there are some configurations that do need altering but I haven't got a clue.

Any help or ideas?

Tom.

Go to VirusTotal.com
Click the "Choose File" button.
Navigate to the file WmiPrvSE.exe and click Open.
Click the "Scan It" button (***Note: If it says this file has already been scanned, please click "Reanalyze").
When it is finished scanning please provide a link to the results page in your next reply.

I scanned my system with malwarebytes anti malware
Was anything detected?? If so, please copy and paste the logfile into your next reply. If you don't know where to find it, let me know!

Depending on the VirusTotal results, we'll go from there.
 
Do you have any other problems with your computer?

Hello,

I recently received a new wireless modem/router from my provider in Germany (I am an expat). My Vpn no longer works really, very slow which leads me to believe, (as well as picking up on a few things online) that "Telekom" provider has done something somehow to block or seriously slow down VPNs.
I have no idea what they have done and am hoping there is some kind of work around?

Any advice welcome.

Thanks

Not sure if this is the right place or even possible but here goes.

I visit a forum and on the forum next to any post you make it also shows part of your service provider e.g. ---.zone4.bethere.co.uk or ---.hsd1.or.comcast.net. my question is is there a way to stop this or make it display something else?

I ask because my service provider is very specfic and i don't want people who use the site to know my provider (for reason i dont want to go into lol this sounds liek a weird thing its nothing dodgy or weird i promise!)

anyway is there a way to not have it displayed (there is no option on the forums) or have it show something different.
 

A:stop a website displaying my service provider?

That's apparently a forum thing for that specific forum. They obviously query the available information for your ISP and display it for some reason. There may be a configuration in your account options to hide it, have you checked? Are you SURE that it's publicly displayed? It might just be visible to you and perhaps board administration.

If you post a link to one of your posts, we can tell you if a guest can also see it.

Hello:

I recently received an email from my service provider that they suspect malware on a computer here in my home.
Here's just a paragraph from the email: "You are receiving this email as Cogeco has received reports of atypical traffic from your system which is indicative of malware (ie: a virus or trojan). It is most likely that your system has been compromised with malware that is allowing a remote entity to utilize your system resources"

Fearing the worst, I started googling and came across your site.
As gathering this information takes time. I am posting this thread for one of 2 machines I need checked.
I followed the "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help" and am attaching all the log files generated, along with the hijack this report.
I don't know exactly what I'm looking for so your help would most be appreciated.

I will post the 2nd computer in a different thread, as I have to wait for someone to come home this evening to gain access to it.

Thanking You in advance.
Dan.

Hi,

We are in the process of developing a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) and a Key Storage Provider (KSP) which are implemented as Dynamic-link libraries (.dll). The final product needs to be digitally signed in order for Windows to accept and use our implementations.

I read on MSDN that developers used to send an email to [email protected] and request that Microsoft do the signing. I sent an email to them, requesting more information about the process, but haven't received any feedback in about three months.

I figured an alternative would be to buy a "Code Signing certificate for Microsoft Authenticode" from a trusted CA, such as Symantec, and use that to sign the appropriate files ourselves. Would this be possible? I am just not sure whether it is permitted that security products, such as CSPs and KSPs, can be signed by the developers themselves and whether Microsoft wants to look at the implementations first.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

A:How to digitally sign a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP)

A search seems to indicate that email address is still correct. There is also indications you must download a Cryptographic Provider Development Kit

Hopefully someone with hands on experience will also respond.

Say a person does not want to pay a service provider anything. Is it possable
for that person to get an email address and use it. I thought that Juno had
a free email service that allowed someone to use e-mail without paying
a service provider but I am not sure. If it is so, is there any information
for that. Is there any other service that would provide absolutely free
email.
thank you,

I purchased this All in one new, i asked the computer shop to increase RAM from factory supplied 8GB to the max possible 16GB. They tell me if they open the computer up and break the seal the warranty is null and void. Is this the case or not, i dont see the point in buying a computer and not being able to increase RAM until the warranty period ends, why make a 16GB if i can only have 8GB.

my internet connection keeps going off and I have phoned my service provider to trouble shoot but it keeps on happening intermittantly. I have restarted my computer and then it goes back online.
 

A:My internet connection keeps going off and I have phoned my service provider

We need a bit more information.

Is it wireless or do you connect with a cable to your router.

What version of windows are you using.

Is this a laptop or desktop with a built in wireless card or are you using a dongle.

Please provide the make and model of the PC.

Apart from that you have started this thread in the section for introducing yourself, it should be in Storage and Networking.

You may get moved but help will continue.

Hello All,

I share an internet connection with 4 other people. We currently have Rogers Ultimate - 50 Mbs up/ 2 Mbs down. We use Rogers built in wireless/modem all in one. Some people are wireless others wired.

When there is no one on the network other than me, I can get speeds of 50 Mbs (speedtest.net)

But when more people connect it can drop to as low as 0-5 Mbs with no P2P/streams/downloads running on their computer.

I have a feeling that it could be an issue with the router. Is there a possibility that by them just being connected to the network, our bandwidth speeds drop? Does it matter the type of router we use?

When people do use P2P, streams etc will it use up all the bandwidth it possibly can or only what it needs? I am wondering because it feels like that when I run my P2P clients, my internet is the same weather its 20Mbs or 50Mbs.

Thanks for all the help!!!!
 

A:Internet Bandwidth Issue - router? service provider?

No, just being connected would not cause this, unless these people have viruses. P2P is a problem because most ISPs monitor it, and the ISP itself might be cutting you down for participating. But in general Im thinking either someone is hiding something, someone has a virus, or your ISP has caught on.

For example. Let's say I visit this website. When I come here my IP address can be looked up by the admins. If I change internet providers I should now have a new IP address, right? Now, here's the question. Will the owners of the website I visit be able to see that I am still the same person? If I were to manually change my IP, it would still show all the ip addresses that have been used under the one account. But, with the new provider will the new IP address still be linked with the old one?
