I’ve been told that most of the new computer don’t have a modem but someone told me that there is a gadget I can buy that can be inserted in the USB port on a new computer that will allow me to connect to my phone line.

How come my computer cannot to the Internet via dialup? 

by on January 17, 2011

Q: I am trying to help my dad with a computer problem, He has dial-up on his computer and lately the computer seems to be unable to make a connection. If it does connect, he will usually get kicked out after a few minutes with a message saying he has been disconnected. He will try to connect again as prompted only to get a server not found error. He is running firefox but this will also happen if he tries to connect using Internet Explorer. I am not really sure what the problem is. It is the only computer in the house, a newer acer laptop. Any advice? Any other info needed? Thanks so much!


Is there a way to stop a page from loading in my web browser when I find out it has video? 

by on August 13, 2010

Q: I have an old emachine and I live in the country. I have dialup and the fastest I can get is 53.3 Kbps.

For that reason, I don’t download large file such as videos because you can imagine how long that would take and long before it was done my ISP would disconnect me. I try to be careful about sites I visit and if they are loaded with video ads I back out as fast as I can. Sometimes I can’t even using Esc or Alt+Ctrl+Delete. Of course I’m blocked by programming that probably includes a “stay here” line. If I unplug the phone line from the wall jack, the computer freezes and the only way I can end it is to go to Shutdown, but even then I have to wait. So my question is, is there some keyboard command I can use to over-ride programming to stop a download?
