Well, my friend never did give me a straight answer as to which, laptop or desktop, was being used. Some cable was replaced yesterday and it seems to be working better.

All those things are things to do after answering the questions in my first message in the thread.  We have no idea about whether a laptop is being used and if the problem is with WiFi accidentally being turned off in the laptop.  Also, I forgot to account for desktops using WiFi.  If a desktop is being used using WiFi, whether WiFi is on on the desktop should be checked as well.  If you don't check the WiFi connection first, you are following a procedure that may waste a lot of time and not solve the problem until you finally check it.
 
Regarding working with the modem itself, it is better to try the power cord option first because if you reset a modem, any settings you changed will be lost.  Will your password be lost as well if you use the reset button if it isn't the factory password and will the modem revert to the factory password?  ?  I don't know. 
 
If you haven't changed any settings, then I'm not sure if it matters if you reboot with the button first.  But I believe a tech told me that even then, its better to use the power chord option first, I'm not sure why.

Dear Vicki W & list:

The message is advising of no internet. Reboot the modem, by pressing its reset button if it has one or unplugging the power cord if no reset button. Modems with battery backup need reset button pressed, unplugging the power cord does not reset them.

Check network status, available networks & that at least one wifi network is online. See if Ethernet cable from modem to PC tests good.

Phone ISP and explain no internet. ISP may be able to reboot modem or verify it works OK.

 

Good luck.

A friend just wrote to me with the following error message. I made every suggestion I can think of, and it is still not working. It seems pretty basic stuff, check the modem, the router, the cable connections, the wireless card, call the internet provider.

 

If anyone has other suggestions, please suggest away and I will pass on the info.

goldwave batch conversion question...

Keith S
 

Is there a setting in goldwave that will allow me to batch convert multiple files within several seperate folders within  another folder?
 
Right now, the only way I can do this is to move all the files into one folder and then run the batch convert.
 
Thanks


Re: network connection problem

Gene
 

What do you mean an app is unable to connect?  That is a standard message you get when you are using a browser and there is no connection at all to the Internet.  I'm not saying this or that app, do you mean application or app, may not be able to connect for some reason and others can, but if you try to or three things, a browser and an e-mail program should be sufficient and you can't connect with either one, it is the connection.

I just use the app that comes with the phone and it's very good.  You can tell Siri directions to a certain address and it takes you the fastest route.

Hi TerriLynne,

Press NVDA+F7 to bring up the elements list.  The NVDA key is either INSERT or CAPS LOCK, depending on your setup.

There is a little on the elements list in the User Guide: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#ElementsList

The Basic Training for NVDA module covers it in more detail with more explanation and step by step activities: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Kind regards
