Answers :

For one: Routers are not too expensive now if you are using a basic plug in type. I have found them as cheap as 25 dollars. If its a Linksys Router, then go to that website and find the router in their files and then get the drivers for it, anything else, suggestion is as above, Buy a new one.

2: Comcast is not . i repeat, not the greatest people to trust on all information. I know, because i worked for them 5 years ago when i wasnt as well trained. They do not always know what they are talking about. Unless the mail account in question is directly from Microsoft, their updates would Not effect your Password and Login, and they would offer a way to retreive or reset the information to be used again.

3: I always use an outside Email address than the one that i am given from Internet Provider. Just simplier and less problematic. Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, all are good ones to use. all have nice options for spam block, and all are free. Otherwise, search out smaller companies that offer Pop-Mail server accounts on limited storage space for free or very little money per month

I have a Compaq SR1130NX computer. It had some major problems, so I was reformatting the computer, or so I thought and I put in the Quick Restore CD for my older computer I used to have which was Windows 98. Needless to say - it won't do anything and I am now stuck with the computer unavailable. I looked at the little packaged I got with the Windows XP computer and it didn't have any restore CDs. Is there any way that I can get a set so I can restore my computer to my manufacturer defaults?

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
