  • Anyone know how to log into a router config page with a smartphone browser?

    I want to access my router with my Samsung Ace 2 smartphone via the inbuilt browser but when I type the router ip address in the browser I get a search result from Google which I dont want. I can do this easily with a laptop or PC with IE10 but not with opera mini or the standard search bar from my mobile phone. How do I force the phone to access the routers built-in web ip address and not search Google results? Anyone?

  • Horrible pain in left arm for over 12 weeks (not heart related)?

    I have shooting/throbbing pains in my left arm, it goes from just below shoulder joint through bicep and tricep into forearm. I can only describe it like a toothache or nerve pain, it also hurts when lifting my arm up and when moving it behind me. Its not there all the time, it comes and goes. I could be just sitting watching TV and them bam! the pains start and can last a few hours and then just go off. It seems worse in the evening. No heart pains when exerting and my GP has ruled out heart problem and just gave me Ibuprofen gel which has not helped (I am also on 60mg of Dihydrocodeine 3x day for back pain) The pain is really getting to me now so I would appreciate any sensible advice on what this might be. I do remember my son punching me in the arm a few months back but don't know if this is related.

  • i5 2500k with Asus P8H61-M compatibility question?

    I just got an Intel i5 2500k and tried it in the above motherboard with DDR3 and it rufuses to work properly. On powering up it just beeps and goes into a continual loop and beeping. Evenyually I managed to stop the looping and got into BIOS (CPU Temp is 28C. However It still wont read my memtest or linux CD boot disk either. Cmos jumper was reset and BIOS settings all set to default and still no joy. windows 7 will not install and just bluescreens even with the AHCI setting on. The motherboard and memory works perfectly with an Intel G620 cpu, but will not work when inserting the 2500k, Psu is a 500w and the 2500k IS on the motherbord cpu Vendor list with installed BIOS Version. Am I missing something? anyone got any idea whats going on? Or do I have a bad cpu?

  • Can anybody identify this tablet (medicine)?

    I have been given these tablets today as an alternative to my normal tablet by a pharmacy but are different to the ones I normally take (the chemist says they are the same) but I'm not so sure. Round white tablet 6-7 mm diameter with "DU" printed on one side and a "C" printed on the other. Any info would be great, ie manufacturer, type etc just to put my mind at rest. I cant find any info on them. I live in the UK.

  • Can you appeal driving points on your licence (in10)?

    My 20 year old son got 6 points (in10) last year for being a pillion on his own moped, his friend was driving, and it was on a cycle track.

    Now he is being quoted over £4000 for insurance for his Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 (was £2800 last year)

    So basically they done him for no insurance. He did hold insurance at the time for the moped.

    Is there anything he can do to have the convictions re-considered or down graded, as this seems a bit harsh to me, especially as the insurance companies are really hitting young drivers with crazy premiums.

    Hi, I found this unusual creature in my fridge door, it was hanging by a thread like a spider, I picked it up from the line it was spinning and while moving it to the kitchen sink it was spinning more line downwards from my finger tip.

  • JVC HR-S7965 Super VHS video rewind & fast forward fault. HELP?

    Help please. Hi I have the above VCR and all works great apart from tonight it started having trouble on rewind and fast forward when I put and old tape in it. when pressing the FF OR RW fast it sounds like something is slipping real bad and making a terrible grinding whirring noise then shuts off. I put my normal HQ SVHS tapes back in but it is still doing it. If I press the play button then fast forward it goes ok in search mode both ways no prob (just takes ages to rewind though) only when it dissengages from the head drum in fast rewind or forward mode it starts off ok then as the reals start to spin it slips and make the horrible noise. I cant go without my VCR I have a large collection of tapes so any help would be great. I have basic electronic servicing skills but am not great on the mechanical side of VCR'S.

  • LG DR289H DVD RECORDER STRANGE PROBLEM?

    Can anyone shed any light on this strange problem with my dvd recorder. I've had it for 2 years and it been great, just in the last few weeks it will not play pre recorded films bought from shops, however it will play record, copied cd's DVDs and plays perfectly with ones i have copied and recorded to (all types) but when i put a normal rented or purchased film it has trouble reading the disks and then spits them out with a unrecognized disc error. All the discs are new and have no marks. I have tried a lens cleaner disk but didn't help.

  • Extra system32/ directory within system32/drivers - WindowsXP?

    I have discovered another system 32 directory within system32/drivers

    Anyone heard of this or know what the extra system32 is for? The full path is C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS \system32\ Drivers and then a few files like atapi, and pciide, usbuhci, and a few others.

    This looks a bit suspicious to me as I've not seen this before. Full rootkit scan done with MBAM, PCtools Spyware doctor (registered) and MS Security Essentials all find no threats.

    Clean install last week. System is Core 2 duo@4Ghz, 4Gb 1150Mhz Reaper Ram.

    Anyone heard of this or know what the extra system32 is for? The extra folder is called drivers in system32 with just a few (what looks like some cd rom files in there) The full path is C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS \system32\ Drivers and then a few files like atapi, and pciide, usbuhci, and a few others.

    This looks a bit suspicious to me as I've not seen this before. Full rootkit scan done with MBAM, PCtools Spyware doctor (registered) and MS Security Essentials all find no threats.

    System is a little slow to start but responsive once started and I am getting a ding (as if I've plugged something in a USB socket) just as the desktop loads (this might not be related to the above as I can't be bothered to unplug all my usb stuff at the mo)

  • My cat being sick after just water?

    Anyone have any suggestions as to why this is happening.

    She is a longhair, 9 years old normally good health, she doesn't go out much and for the last 4 days has been off her food. tried lots if different things but she is just not interested. She has just been lying on the bed for past 3 days and nights, has nothing coming from eyes or nose or rear end so I don't think it's flu. Tonight she seemed really thirsty and had a good drink of water but it came straight back up. She does gets furrballs from time to time and usually deals with them easily by coughing them up quickly and then she's fine but this time it seems a little different. There have been no changes in LifeStyle food or furniture being moved.

    I intend to get here down the vets in the morning as I am getting worried but just wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks.

There is nothing in my instruction manual or o2 website apart from saying connect the iphone to itunes and follow installation procedure which is hopeless, and not much help on the net Help anyone please I am getting frustrated.
