Will using an internal modem be less problematic than using a USB modem? 

by on June 2, 2011

Q: My folks have a new computer with Windows 7. Where they live only has Dial Up access or Satellite. They do not use the computer for any purpose other than email and processing pictures and surfing the internet. They don’t do downloads, uploads or gaming so all they need is dial up.
Can I install a V-90 56K modem and will it be compatible? We’ve tried the external USB modems and they are a pain in the BUT and don’t always work or disconnect or reconnect and it’s been a hassle…trying to figure out how to fix the problem.


How come win98se with a USB device connected will freeze on boot? 

by on October 1, 2009

Q: If I start my win98se computer with a USB device connected at bootup the computer will freeze. After rebooting a few times to safe mode and shutting down with no USB devices connected then the computer will boot into win98 and I can then connect the USB modem and get on Internet. I have the same problem if the USB printer is connected so I know it is not just an issue with the USB modem.

This never used to happen so I am wondering what I might be able to do to solve the problem. I have also recently started getting registry checker blue screen errors after a few hangs as well. Is there a way to check for USB issues? What should I try to do to resolve this?


How come I cannot get a second computer to browse the web over an ad hoc network? 

by on May 4, 2009

Q: I recently purchased a netbook with AT&T 3G service with the intention of sharing that connection with my roommate over an ad hoc wireless connection. I shared the local area connection that is hooked up to the 3G, and I made an ad hoc with the wireless. The other computer is able to connect to the internet now through the ad hoc using almost everything except a web browser. It can log onto skype and it can use aim now but when I try to browse a webpage it doesnt load. This makes me think a specific port is blocked so I turned off the windows firewall but that did not work and am not sure what else I can do. Is there a way to get around this?
