    Maureen Germain: I think I gave my wifi password to an old friend that lives in my building. I am not very tech savvy and I don't seem to be able to detect my wifi and don't know if it is hidden or not. My wireless printer is working. I have no clue what to do at this poi...  more

      Sylvia Todd If it needs a password it is secured from access by strangers, at least to the extent that you have a good password and if your friend doesn't go around telling everyone what it is :). Are you trying to change it so that your friend can't use it anymore?
    • Maureen Germain
      Maureen Germain Yes Sylvia, and Joseph, it is my own wifi router I bought. I pay for a different one and did not give out that one, but thank you for the info. I don't do things like that. Love Moe

      Maureen Germain Sylvia, my computer is running very slowly now and always freezes. She is not my friend anymore and I'm not sure about her giving it out. I didn't actually give it to her she wrote it down for me as I couldn't see the back of my wifi for it and needed it ...  more

      Dion Todd Hi Maureen, I am not real clear on what router you have, or how many, but as a rule power them all off and back on again then see if it appears.

    Joseph Adams, Jr.: Norton Suite has quarantined "Trojan.Kotver!gm2, how can I remove it from this computer? HP Pavilion 17. Also can it spread to my tablet and the other two computers on my network?

    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Dion Todd It is very doubtful that it will spread to your others, and certainly not the tablet. Quarantine is fine, that means that it disabled the file and moved it to a secure location.

      Joseph Adams, Jr. Thanks Pastor

    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Dion Todd If the power supply is good, then the battery may be just bad. It happens. Battery charging is hardware related. You can charge the battery with the laptop shutdown and closed. In fact, try that. Shut the computer down, close it, try charging it.
    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Joseph Adams, Jr. Okay, the laptop is not two years old.

      Sylvia Todd Hi Paula! We use Google Voice for some functions and don't believe there are any issues with security there. On the voice mail, that's just because that's actually held with your cell phone provider, rather than over the internet. God bless, sister <3!

      Paula Neace Thanks Sylvia I appreciate your feedback

    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Dion Todd Nice download - What is your ISP supposed to be providing you in upload speed? That is what determines it. You will need to find out what Internet package you should have, and then make them provide that by repeatedly calling. If it is 50/10 then the spee...  more
    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Joseph Adams, Jr. 75/10 is what I pay for. In the past the upload speed avg. was 12.05, something happened to slow it up. This is with the Ethernet connection.
      • April 30
    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Dion Todd You will have to call them again. It is about positively on their end.
    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Joseph Adams, Jr. http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/6261352167 It has improved on it's own. I am near all three sports arenas here in Detroit, plus two schools and Orchestra Hall, could these be factors?

      Dion Todd If you have cable Internet, then it is shared with the community. One big line they pull in, and everyone uses it.

      Joseph Adams, Jr. I have been paying for a speed of 75mbps for over two years and I am only getting 11.77mbps. I will contact my ISP. Thanks for helping me.
      • March 18
    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Dion Todd Sadly we see that a lot. You can call the ISP to increase your speed, and they merely increase your bill. You have to test yourself and be sure that you get what you pay for.
    • Joseph Adams, Jr.
      Joseph Adams, Jr. My ISP is sending a tech here tomorrow. There seems to be a problem with noise distortion in the connection. They won't be raising my rates, because I have already been paying for 75mbps for two years. They are giving me a credit, had I not mentioned it h...  more

      Sylvia Todd lol, in particular for us, we always end up multi-boxing with online games, and just keeping up with our characters is too time consuming for us these days :D. Sure, we could just not do that, but it never turns out that way ;)
