Internet Connection HELP!!?
Question: Ok. So I had a reeeeally bad virus on my computer, it deleted my registry, everything. So I re-installed my OS CD (XP PRO). Now i'm trying to connect it to the internet and I have a modem plugged in, with a USB cable connecting to the computer from the modem, and it still won't recognize the connection. HELP! Let me be more specific -- I completely wiped my computer. Nothing on it anymore. It wasn't the smartest move. Then I used a friend's un-opened XP cd to reload it. Everything works fine now, just no internet connection can be found. I have a modem set up to three other computers, 2 desktop and 1 laptop, and I have a cable connecting the wiped computer to the modem. I don't understand why but it can't see anything trying to connect. I've looked through the electronic manuals in the computer about setting up a network, and connecting to an existing one, but nothing works. I'm so frustrated! P.S. -- I don't know if this matters, but it is a Linksys Broadband Router.
Best Answers: Internet Connection HELP!!?
Your virus is still on there. Buy some software. Like CA software. Then if that doesn't work, use another USB slot or cord. If all this doesn't work take your modem to a store.
Do NOT give ANYONE the connection. Your ISP can terminate your service without notice for this. They could also prosecute you and the people using it with up to 5 years in prison possible fore EVERY time anyone else connected. . You would also be liable for prosecution if they did anything illegal like sending money scam or child porn emails.They would consider this theft of service as it is another person they could provide service for. Set yourself a new wireless key, and do NOT give it to anyone.
