downloads freeze no response HELP PLEASE!

by rikuharts / February 14, 2007 5:26 PM PST

i have recently hooked up with wireless internet after purchasing a
D-link Airplus G DWL-G510 Wireless PCI adapter. I have connected it to a Netcomm NB9W router. I am able to connect and surf the internet but when I choose to download a file, I save the download to a location but the download doesnt start, it just stays there and no matter how long I wait it doesnt seem to make any progress. It doesnt freeze and I am able to cancel it but I am unable to download anything. Can anyone help me?

It maybe a bad link on the server end. Is this the only download you are having problems with?
Have you try downloading another file?
Have you try using different browsers?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
