Many years ago I gave my house the name of “The House of Four Paws”.  Now that I have moved, I’d like to name this house when I check in.  Can anyone tell me how?  Have tried for about an hour and haven’t found any familiar category like I did last time.  Help Please?

In device manager, find the adapter in the network adapter pull out window

you whether you want the computer to turn it off if you want to save power
consumption. You do not want the computer to turn it off at all. HTH

If that doesn't work then try a new adapter. If you are comfortable with installing PCI cards, I would get a PCI-E WiFi card they are much better than USB ones.

Hello everyone:

If my problem is inappropriate for this list, please let me know where I can go to get help to resolve it.

We have a DELL PC computer. It is running the latest version of Windows 10. the latest version of JAWS is also installed.

Recently, I had to move the computer from one roon to another room. In the original location, the connection to the network and the internet, was through an ethernet connection, and I had very few problems. In the new location, I connected the USB Wifi dongle and installed the software and selected my ISP's router. I chose to have the computer connect automatically to other devices on the network.

My problem is, each time I turn on the computer, and try to access the internet, retrieve my email or, connect to another computer on the network, I get the message that there are no networks available. However, I have checked the setting to have the computer connect to the router automatically, when the system is in range, but still the system does not connect the the router each time I start the computer.

Any and all suggestions will be very much appreciated.

Hi Dave,

 

Yes, my laptop is on my desk with nothing under it or around it. Honestly, I don’t think this is the issue. When I came down this morning and started working, I had the problem quite soon after starting. I tried unloading and reloading JAWS, and that seemed to work.

When you use the laptop, is the computer resting on a hard surface, such as a table, without a soft cloth or material, between the laptop and the table?

 

It is very important to ensure that the ventilation slotson the underside of the computer are not partially blocked or totally blocked.

 

When I use my laptop on my lap, I have a piece of laminated wood which was cut in such a way that when the laptop is resting on the piece of wood, there is about 3 inches of wood jutting out on either side of the laptop and 2 inches, jut out at the front and the back. The piece of wood, is between half and 3 quarters of an inch thick.

Hi,

  Wondering if this may be an issue with your laptop that is affecting JAWS performance?

Some areas to consider:

  How much memory do you have and does your ongoing work consume much of the memory?

Not often but at times the computer will not clear a program from memory even after it, the program, is closed.  Your re start of the computer fixes this issue.

Is your laptop being cooled adequately??

Laptops, especially newer, will slow the cpu if temperatures rise. (Thermo throttling )

Thus the performance of JAWS and other programs may be compromised.

  Your issue may indeed be JAWS related however just a couple other ideas.

Hi All,

 

I am not exactly sure how to describe this, but I will give it a go. I am running Windows 10 and JAWS 2021 – the issue isn’t specific to any program. It seems that after I have been working for a while on my laptop – for the morning – JAWS starts to get a bit sluggish by times. It is slow to respond when I press a key, and it is kind of intermittent. I also notice, at the same time that the sound is less sharp – I’m really not sure if that is at all helpful.

 

If I shut down and restart it seems to go away until a few hours later.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia

To connect, I go to my task bar with Windows + B and arrow to Internet connections and enter on it and connect to a network, and select one and enter my credentials.
I don't know if you were referring to the type of Internet connection settings where it offers LAN that is always connected or DSL or LAN where you have to enter credentials.
That is the one that I never change from always connected to LAN.
Yes, on the WIFI settings, you want to connect automatically.
Did you get the opportunity to enter the SSID and password?

No, the connect automatically will save the wi-fi password and connect to that network whenever it is in range.  If it doesn't do so, the driver is junk.

If that doesn't work then try a new adapter. If you are comfortable with installing PCI cards, I would get a PCI-E WiFi card they are much better than USB ones.

If a long distance, buy an extender from places as Best Buy. Walls and going from one floor to another will cause such issues.

Subject: Problem with my WiFi

 

Hello everyone:

 

If my problem is inappropriate for this list, please let me know where I can go to get help to resolve it.

 

We have a DELL PC computer. It is running the latest version of Windows 10. the latest version of JAWS is also installed.

 

Recently, I had to move the computer from one roon to another room. In the original location, the connection to the network and the internet, was through an ethernet connection, and I had very few problems. In the new location, I connected the USB Wifi dongle and installed the software and selected my ISP's router. I chose to have the computer connect automatically to other devices on the network.

 

My problem is, each time I turn on the computer, and try to access the internet, retrieve my email or, connect to another computer on the network, I get the message that there are no networks available. However, I have checked the setting to have the computer connect to the router automatically, when the system is in range, but still the system does not connect the the router each time I start the computer.

 

Any and all suggestions will be very much appreciated.

 

Dave Durber. .

My lap top sits on its spine, on my desk.  That what rests on the desk is the lid, with its monitor.  The bottom of the lap top never touches the desk.  Unless I have a sighted person assist me with me.  I type on a USB full sized keyboard.

When I bought my laptop, I tried one of those fans that you sit the laptop on that provides plenty of circulation but it was too thick to use on my keyboard shelf.

So, I created my own stand.

I took 24 pennies, 6 per stack, and used Duct Tape to create four little legs and taped them to the laptop right next to the little bumps that supposedly serve as legs on a laptop.

My computer has never gotten too warm since.

If I use it on my lap, which I almost never do, I use a board to sit it on.

Synthia:

 

When you use the laptop, is the computer resting on a hard surface, such as a table, without a soft cloth or material, between the laptop and the table?

 

It is very important to ensure that the ventilation slotson the underside of the computer are not partially blocked or totally blocked.

 

When I use my laptop on my lap, I have a piece of laminated wood which was cut in such a way that when the laptop is resting on the piece of wood, there is about 3 inches of wood jutting out on either side of the laptop and 2 inches, jut out at the front and the back. The piece of wood, is between half and 3 quarters of an inch thick.

Hi Dan,

 

I do worry about whether it is cooling enough, but I don’t know what to do about that.

Hi,

  Wondering if this may be an issue with your laptop that is affecting JAWS performance?

Some areas to consider:

  How much memory do you have and does your ongoing work consume much of the memory?

Not often but at times the computer will not clear a program from memory even after it, the program, is closed.  Your re start of the computer fixes this issue.

Is your laptop being cooled adequately??

Laptops, especially newer, will slow the cpu if temperatures rise. (Thermo throttling )

Thus the performance of JAWS and other programs may be compromised.

  Your issue may indeed be JAWS related however just a couple other ideas.

Hi All,

 

I am not exactly sure how to describe this, but I will give it a go. I am running Windows 10 and JAWS 2021 – the issue isn’t specific to any program. It seems that after I have been working for a while on my laptop – for the morning – JAWS starts to get a bit sluggish by times. It is slow to respond when I press a key, and it is kind of intermittent. I also notice, at the same time that the sound is less sharp – I’m really not sure if that is at all helpful.

 

If I shut down and restart it seems to go away until a few hours later.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia

Dave,
To connect, I go to my task bar with Windows + B and arrow to Internet connections and enter on it and connect to a network, and select one and enter my credentials.
I don't know if you were referring to the type of Internet connection settings where it offers LAN that is always connected or DSL or LAN where you have to enter credentials.
That is the one that I never change from always connected to LAN.
Yes, on the WIFI settings, you want to connect automatically.
Did you get the opportunity to enter the SSID and password?
If not, that may be the problem.

No, the connect automatically will save the wi-fi password and connect to that network whenever it is in range.  If it doesn't do so, the driver is junk.

When WIFI gets connected, it will be the LAN that is always connected.

Power line adapters allow you to connect to ethernet using your electric wiring.  Another thought is to get a different wi-fi adapter, sounds like what you bought wasn't any good.
