Is there anyway to get Alfa wireless working with a Vizio blu-ray player? 

by on December 28, 2010

Q: I just got a Vizio blu-ray with apps player that connects to the internet via ethernet, as a present. I do not have a modem and have been getting the internet wireless with the help of an Alfa wireless network adapter to my laptop. The Vizio has a usb port and I tried plugging the alfa adapter into it but it didn’t recognize any network. My question is, is there a way to get wireless internet to my vizio player and its ethernet cable? If there is a way, is there a better way and a more cost effective way. I realize I should have just gotten the wireless version, but this was a present and I want them to see it works for me.

How come I cannot get all my devices to connect to my wireless network at the same time? 

by on December 12, 2010

Q: I am having trouble with my wireless network. I have multiple devices on my network, computers, laptops, TV and blu-ray. They cannot all seem to connect at the same time. When I want to connect to the TV, sometimes I have to reset the router and cable modem and then I can connect. But then at the same time, I lose my connection to my laptop. I’m connected to the router but have no internet access. So I’ll reboot again and then I’ll lose connection to my blu-ray. This is a pattern that has been going on for some time. Does anyone know how to fix?

How come a new wireless card still wont get me online? 

by on August 13, 2010

Q: I have a presario F730us laptop. For the past few weeks the light in the front that shows the wireless is on (orange if off and blue if on) was orange and not reading the wireless card no matter what. But it would be off and on, sometimes working sometimes not. All the sudden a week ago it just went out all together and nothing will fix it. I did everything HP told me to like updates, update the drivers, take the plugs out of the wireless card and re-plug them and nothing worked.

They then told me the wireless card was bad but tonight I took it to get a new one and they put one in there and it still would not work. They tried a few other things (not sure what) and still nothing would make the wireless work what so ever anymore.

The drivers would say Microsoft adapter ISATAP not working error 31. But nothing fixes anything and I did everything Microsoft and HP said and still nothing.

Is it possible to add wireless weather resistant outdoor speakers to my stereo system? 

by on July 30, 2010

Q: I have a Sony component system inside the house. I would like to add wireless weather resistant outdoor speakers so that I can listen to music outside as well. I would prefer the ability to have the music playing outside only, inside only, and inside and out at the same time. I would like to do this without drilling holes in the exterior concrete walls, and running wires from the outside to the inside. Please tell me if this is possible, and what I need to buy.
