Do I need encrypted VPN if I use my phone to connect my laptop in a public place?

Q: Do I need encrypted VPN if I use my phone to connect my laptop in a public place?

I usually use my phone instead of the public WiFi but I wonder if it's too much to also use a paid VPN to protect my data. They´'re not super secret documents but some are confidential.

What do you think?

Hi,
My Internet suddenly stopped working on my laptop. I can connect fine on my phone, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the router. Nonetheless I've tried restarting the router but it didn't help (I've restarted my laptop too).
The windows troubleshooter said I'm connected fine and there's no problems, but I still can't access any Web pages. The icon on the task bar seems to be a monitor with a square in the top left corner rather than the usual connection bars.
I'm not on flight mode and there doesn't seem to be any physical switches on my laptop. I'm using Windows 10 and my Internet hasn't been working for around 24 hours now.
Hopefully someone is able to help me

A:Can connect to WiFi on phone but not laptop

Press the "Windows Button" and "R" simultaneously.
Typ in cmd
 
A new window will open.
Typ in cd Desktop
 
Then typ in ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt
Go to your Desktop and open the file "ipconfig.txt".
Copy and paste the content of that file here.

 
1. You may wish to omit the "Host Name" part, because of your privacy!! (in case your hostname includes real names of you or someone else)
2. If you do already have a file called "ipconfig.txt" on the Desktop, then you may wish to move that file somewhere else, otherwise it is being replaced.

A:Using 3G mobile phone to connect laptop to internet?

I can't tell you info as to details for your specic computer and phone.. but can tell you in general (as i do it with a dell laptop and a Motorola phone)


First and most important, is you probably need a software application that targets this functionality. i don't believe you're going to get it work "right out of the box"
The phones can be "tethered" to your laptop or not (and sometimes that's the wireless carriers choice and not a matter if the hardware can do it)
Tethered means it requires a cable to connect phone and laptop
Un-tethered is the obvious then. No cable. In my case, i use bluetooth on my phone and computer. Nice advantage is not having to plug/unplug a darn cable as u walk in /. out of the room. I;ll walk out and lose my Bluetooth connection, and then walk back in..here the beeping 10 secs until they reconnect

Help! Rec'd new Dell Inspiron 4150 for Christmas. Has XP Home 2002 with SP1 pre-installed. Want to connect to internet on Sanyo SCP-5150 phone that is wireless web enabled thru Sprint. Have downloaded PCS Connection Manager software from Sprint. Am using Sprint serial cable from phone to Keyspan brand 'high speed' USB serial adapter into laptop USB port.
Phone not recognized as even hooked up by Sprint PCS software. Connected everything in order recommended.
Sprint on phone is no help, when you get tech support, you get a different answer every time (3 times now). This phone is 3G voice, 2G data. Sprint in person was no help, they said they don't have the training to answer this question. Have emailed Sprint, but no response.
Any suggestions? I've browsed lots of websites now looking for someone who has had this problem, but no luck.
Hopefully yours,
KS computer user
 

A:XP laptop and internet connect thru Sprint phone

How does my Sprint PCS Phone differ from a standard external modem?

Aside from the obvious difference that it's wireless, the biggest difference between your Sprint PCS Phone and an ordinary modem is that there's no modem in your Sprint PCS Phone, PC, or laptop - the modem actually resides within the Sprint PCS Nationwide Network. However, to your computer, your phone looks the same as an ordinary 14400 bps external serial modem. To you, the important difference is that your connection is wireless.

From: http://www1.sprintpcs.com/explore/P...ER<>ATR_cartState=group&bmUID=1041256448738#3

I say why are you trying to use USB? Connect it to the serial port.

Hi there
On an HTC phone there is an option to use this as an Internet pass through (or I suppose a "Virtual Router").

I'm late to the world of smartphones etc so this might seem like a stupid question - but I would like to connect a PC and / or a tablet at times via the phone's Internet Connection (since it's paid for !!).

Any Ideas anyone -- phone is an HTC using the Android OS.

Cheers
jimbo

A:Htc phone as Internet pass through to connect W8 laptop / Tablet

You will need to install the native Windows driver for your phone, I'm guessing. Depending on what model you have will affect what drivers you will need to download. They can usually be found on the manufacturer's website.

Then you need to enable USB tethering from the phone (found under WiFi settings). Check these articles:
How to tether your HTC EVO 4G -- for free - Computerworld Blogs

Get USB Tethering on HTC HD7

Then you need to set it up as whatever kind of network you prefer. It will usually show up as a LAN adapter.

Use this guide if you're interested in using WiFi and a tether at the same time:

Hi all.

I am considering purchasing a phone with Wifi capabilities. I have a wireless internet connection at home which is routed by a Motorola SGB900 Wireless Surfboard gateway.

I already have 2 wireless computers (1 laptop and 1 PC) connected wirelessly. If I purchase a Wifi phone, will I be able to connect to the internet via this wireless connection?

My work also offers free wireless to all employees and I am able to connect my laptop there. Will a Wifi phone be able to connect to my work network?

Also, will the Wifi connection cost me anything from my phone provider as using WAP does?

Thanks all

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect
my apps to the internet but I can't one.

hello, i have a computer that will connect perfectly to an encrypted wirelss network, but when i try to connect to an unencrypted network it will tell me that it is connected yet it will still have the connect button there. i can get on the internet for a while but after a minute or so it will kick me off and make me reconnect. i think the problem is connecting trying to connect to an unencryped after connecting to an encrypted one because the machie was working just fine before it tried to go back to the unencrypted wireless.

is there a fix out there for this? thanks
 

A:will connect to encrypted wireless but not unencrypted

Try removing all of the stored network profiles and see if it will connect at that point. Another thing, are you SURE the network is unencrypted?

Finally, some information about the failing environment and the computer would be useful.

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

The name of your ISP and country of residence.
Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.
Make/model of the router (if any).
Connection type, wired, wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2, Vista, etc.

Also, please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

How do I connect to a LAN at a motel?
I spent a couple days at a motel that had free broadband LAN while my wife was hospitalized.
I only am only familiar with dial-up at home. The motel had no instructions and the clerk had no knowlege of how to make it work.
I was able to connect (I think) since the double monitor symbol came up in the task-bar lower right corner of screen, but I was unable to make Internet explorer respond.
When I clicked the IE icon it attempted to dial the modem, when I clicked cancel it responded "PAGE NOT AVAILABLE OFFLINE"
ICON/PROPERTIES/CONNECTIONS/LAN SETTTINGS/AUTOMATICLY DETECT SETTINGS is checked

Question-how to get Internet Explorer to respond without trying to dial?

PC=Notebook (laptop) with XP PRO/ IE6/LAN and wiireless card (LAN connection is identified)
 

A:connect to public broadband

In Internet Options -> Properties -> Connections, you should have it set to: Dial whenever a network connection is not present.

You shouldn't need to do anything besides physically plug-in to get connected provided your network card is set to request IP addresses automatically, which it should be by default.

Once you're connected, you should verify you have an IP address. Click Start -> Run and type "cmd" (no quotes) then click OK. This will open a command-prompt window. Type "ipconfig" (no quotes) and press enter. This should return the IP address assigned to your network card.

The IP address will be different depending on the hotel, etc. The one thing it should *not* say is 169.254.x.x. If your IP address begins 169.254 then this is a bogus IP address that Windows is filling in because it can't get an address from anywhere else. This could be for a number of reasons.

Sometimes it may help to request a new address, which you can do at the command-prompt by typing "ipconfig /release" (no quotes). Wait until it says the IP address was released, then type "ipconfig /renew" (no quotes).

Basically, my problem is that I installed UltraVNC on two computers in a LAN network and I can connect them if I use the private ip (192.168.1.x), but I can't connect them using the public IP.

I've got a dynamic public IP, so I set up a DynDns account and added host pointing to my public IP. I use their updater to keep the host updated. I've also configured the Port Forwarding settings in my router as the following image shows:


I've tested the port 5900 using Microsoft Port Query and I get the correct result ("LISTENING") with my private IP.

But I get "FILTERED" with either the public ip or the DynDns host despite having configured the port forwarding. There's obviously something blocking the connection in the router but I can't figure it out. Did I do something wrong. Please help me!
 

A:UltraVNC - Can't connect using public IP, please help!

If you can't get UltraVNC running, try TeamViewer, it requires no forwarded ports, and the HOST version will allow unattended operation.

Ever since I got internet home service with Charter, I have been unable to connect to public hotspots. or rather I can connect for about 15 sec, and then my computer automatically disconnects. This never happened when I had home service with Verizon. Is there a setting that needs to be changed on my HP?
 

A:unable to connect to public wifi

Do you actually get connected and are able to see a web page at a public hotspot? Have you made SURE your firewall is properly configured to allow you to connect to the hotspot? Perhaps you've restricted the connection to a specific IP address subnet?
Let's see this when you're at home, and again when you try to connect to a public hotspot.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I purchased a new ASUS laptop a couple of days ago and have been trying to use the hotel wifi where I am staying to do the various updates and installs that new computers require. Unfortunately, while I can connect to my tethered cell phone, I cannot connect to the hotel.

I have another computer on hand that has no difficulties connecting to the hotel wifi, so I know the problem is in the new computer somewhere.

Network adapter is a Broadcom 802.11ac

Actions so far:

Updated Windows 8.1 to current
Attempted to reinstall drivers (uninstalling first) - Drivers are up to date and identical to the ones on manufacturer's site.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

A:New computer - unable to connect to public wifi

The problem is not with the computer or Windows 8.

There are many routers that are not compatible with the new 802.11ac standard. It's unlikely that a hotel will update the firmware on the router for you which may help but in many cases a new ac router will be required.

Try using another n type adaptor, USB perhaps.

At home, I use my laptop to connect to my wireless router without any trouble.

But at: public libraries, Starbucks, hotel rooms... any free public wifi? All attempts to connect meets with the same error: "unable to connect to network" (preceded by the system hanging for a lengthy amount of time). Windows advises me to unplug the router and plug it back in, which obviously isn't an option.

It's annoying to troubleshoot, because I'm only having the problem at times where I have no wired access (hence: no way to get to forums like these and look for an answer, update drivers, whatever).

Didn't used to have this problem, so I suspect something went awry when I set up access to my wireless router at home.

Would appreciate your help!

My daughter started a new job with a large corporation.  They gave her an encrypted laptop to protect their propietary company secrets.  She can work from anywhere and do her job.  I assume they used PGP. Is her laptop secure from CryptoLocker?

A:Can Cryptowall Infect An Encrypted Laptop

A computer that is vulnerable to Cryptolocker will remain vulnerable regardless of whether that computer is using a full disk encryption product.  Full disk encryption can potentially help in situations where a computer (say a laptop that is powered off) is stolen from your vehicle, hotel, etc.  At this point, someone outside your organization has your disk with all your sensitive data -- but since the data is encrypted, they theoretically cannot easily access it.
 
Bottom line - your daughter still needs take precautions against malware, including Cyptolocker.

I use Truecrypt to manage my data securely on my laptop (Windows 8.1 64-bit).

From time to time, I have a requirement to delete some personal data from the encrypted drive. The files go to Recycle Bin and I then empty the bin.

Is this a security risk, i.e. can data files, deleted from an encrypted drive, be accessed should the laptop be lost or stolen.

A:[SOLVED] Encrypted Data on Laptop

You can permanently delete a file from your computer without sending it to the Recycle Bin by clicking the file and then pressing Shift+Delete. you cannot recover it so consider what you might do if you accidentally deleted a file that way.
if you have your machine passworded with a strong password it will be much harder to get into you can also use software to track a lost or stolen laptop for instances this is one https://preyproject.com/

Clue is in the title. Have a toshiba laptop with the UEFI encrypted windows 8 key. The hard drive was broken as it was dropped. No sticker on the bottom as is now microsoft policy. Download of the windows install needs the windows key. Cant get it as it's encrypted. Found generic windows 8.1 keys which worked but it said it was the wrong key for those installs. Generic windows 8 keys don't work for the download. Going around in circles and not sure what to do. Any help would be amazing!

Thanks folks,

I am hoping that some of the brilliant people on this site can help me with this bizarre connect one on to AOL phone line Can't problem We have a Dell Desktop with XP and are using AOL Dial-Up don t laugh for internet access We currently have phone lines the house line a business line and a line we just added last week that was supposed to be for internet Can't connect to AOL on one phone line use only We have no problems connecting to the internet with the old phone lines so from this I assume that our modem and phone cable are OK There is a dial tone no static and I can call and send faxes over this line with no problems The modem will dial out on the line to get access numbers Problem is when I go to sign on there is a dial tone the modem dials out and then it gets stuck on step and never connects I have been through all the troubleshooting with AOL AOL blames the phone line the phone company blames AOL The only difference between the lines is that the ones that I can get on the internet with have call waiting Is there any way this is an issue Is it possible that the line can t handle the K modem I m at a total loss and don t know where to go from here Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks Aubrey nbsp

A:Can't connect to AOL on one phone line

If it connects on one of the lines, and doesn't connect on the new one, the obvious answer here is the phone line.

To eliminate interior wiring, I'd temporarily connect directly to the NID and eliminate any interior wiring as a possible cause. If that fails, it's pretty much got to be the phone line.

My windows mobile won't connect to my laptop (vista). The device seems to be installed as it appears in the device manager, also I hear the sound when I plug it in. I've tried my device on XP and it worked fine, so it's a problem with Vista. I've tried a number of times re installing the device and re installing the software I was given (Windows Mobile Device Center).

Thanks.
 

A:Windows phone won't connect to pc

I've had it connected to another vista computer and it recognized it straight away and worked perfect. The difference is in device manager it says "Microsoft USB Sync" rather than "Toshiba USB Sync 0700", also it says the drivers are working properly.

So it must be an issue with my laptop. Any other USB device seems to work, so it's strange why this is different

Is there a way I can download Microsoft USB Sync drivers? Every link I click tells me to use windows update.

I have a Compaq notebook with Vista OS which I use on my home network with a Dell Desktop (XP OS) and an iMac Desktop (Leopard OS).

I plan on bringing the Laptop with me on a trip this summer and would like to know what settings I should use when on the road to safely access the web at a hotel or other wifi hot spot such as Starbucks. I understand there are some security concerns and I’m not quite clear on the difference between a “public” setting and a “private” one.

I don't know what you mean by "the private/public switch". With wireless enabled, you search for available networks and connect. The process is generally the same as connecting at home.

Hi I've been reading threads for hours on Windows 7 installs but I can't find a specific answer for my scenario.

I am looking at buying a couple of Toshiba laptops that have a pre-installed version of Windows 7 Home Premium. I already own a Microsoft Action Pack which gives me 10 Windows 7 Professional licences. I want to be able to upgrade the OS on the laptops from the Home Edition to the Professional Edition. Because the laptops are already setup with all the toshiba software drivers etc installed I am reluctant to do a clean install. Is it possible to use the product key from my Action Pack to upgrade the laptops without having to wipe them and start again?

I'm not concerned about loosing the home premium licence I just want to upgrade to Professional Edition with minimum fuss.

I hope someone can help clarify this. Thanks.

I want to be able to share these folders from their new location with the other computers in my home network, so I turned on the Public Folder sharing in the Network and Sharing Center.

However, in the Network and Sharing Center the only public folders recognized are the ones still at the original location - C:\Users\Public\Favorites and C:\ ...\Public Desktop (hidden files) and ...\Recorded TV.

I have spent a few hours searching for the answer to this on the internet. In this version of Vista Home Premium, there is NOTthe option to change the letter of the directory in the registry by changing the key called public as suggested by the How To Geek at this link Move the Public Folder in Windows Vista :: the How-To Geek

How To Geek says:
"Browse down to this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
You should see a key called Public. Double-click it to open it and change it to D:\Public, or whatever location you want to move the public folder to."Note - Vista Home Premium does NOT have a Public key.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

Thanks so much in advance.




If you open Windows Explorer and right click on the directory that you want to share. Select Share from the popup menu and then click on the Advanced Sharing button. In the Advanced Sharing dialogue, select Share this folder. If you want sharing users to be able to add or delete files then click on permissions and make sure that the Group Everyone has Full Control selected.

I hope this helps.

I tested my XP computer at the store where I bought it and at my parents house and it has no problem at all connecting to my Internet provider from their telephone lines using my same username and password. My internet provider is blaming my phone line or some other kind of interference although Bell Canada has tested my complete line and reported that it is fully functional with no problems. So my question is why can my computer connect with other phone lines but not mine?

Im wondering if I were to switch to a different internet provider would that solve this problem or should I get a different computer other then an XP because I read on-line that this problem is known to happen with XPs. Im able to hear the touch tone number dial through my computer but im not able to hear that single high pitched sound that occurs after and im not able to see my username and password being verified. Sometimes I spend hours trying to connect and not able, this is driving me crazy.




That is strange indeed. Have you tried a different phone number to your provider? usually they offer more than one. I had a similar problem a few years ago, and it was not my phone line, it was theirs. I used a different number, and had no problems getting in, but I kept getting tossed off every 20-30 minutes. Very aggravating. Once again, I switched numbers. I kept doing that until I got a reliable connection. Another thing you might try is a DSL filter. If it is line noise, that can help to reduce it.

Hope this helps.
Jim.

My Windows desktop displays a black screen with 'XT1039' (the version of my Moto G 4G 'phone) at the top with '0 files' and 'Select all' alongside and an empty bar at the bottom with 'Import' and 'Cancel' alongside when I connect the 'phone. I must press the Windows and 'D' keys to return to the desktop, then right-click the top left corner of the screen to close the thumbnail of the window opened by the 'phone. I have become accustomed to the routine. I should prefer it, however, if nothing happened on connection or, preferably, if File Explorer would open or flash, because that is where I want to be, invariably. Is this a Windows issue that can be changed or is it related to the 'phone about which, perhaps, I can do nothing?

A:Want File Explorer when I connect 'phone

You can set autoplay for that device to automatically open File Explorer upon connection. To do so:

Open control panel, then click on Autoplay. This window will come up:

You will see an option to set a default action for removable drives and camera storage. Im not sure which one would apply to your phone, so I would set both to auto open the File Explorer, or in my preference to take no action.

Try this and report back on whether or not it fixes your issue, please.

A:Vista desktop won't let Win 8.1 laptop into Public folder

Because no one has replied to this question and so many people have viewed it, I wanted to explain how I FINALLY solved the problem I was having and that I am sure other people have, too. The Vista desktop's Security settings were the fly in the ointment. Provided you've done everything else you're supposed to do to set up Public folder sharing in Control Panel>Network and Sharing (i.e., turn on Network Discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing & (if you wish) Printer sharing), you should navigate to C:\Users\Public folder and right-click on the Public folder's file name. Then click Properties. Be sure the Sharing tab indicates that the folder is shared, then click the Security tab. There will be a bunch of users names listed there. What worked for me was to add "Everyone" to that list by clicking the Edit button, the Add button, writing the word "Everyone" in the "Enter the object names to select" field, and clicking Checking Names. That should cause "Everyone" to show up underlined, at which point you click OK. Check the boxes under "Permissions for Everyone," click Apply, OK & Close. That should do it! If you've had this problem and been trying unsuccessfully to solve it for months as I have, give yourself a cheer!

He has much more IT certifications than I do and I'm wondering if he is spying on me or sniffing my IP packets using a customer's PC which he could use as a "trojan horse" inside my house. He can get pretty dirty as he is known to have done so a couple of times!

If there are preventive practices that I could use it will be awesome if you share some!

Thanks!

You need to bridge the Wifi adapter to the Mobile connection in Windows.

Have you tried a different usb cable?

Is the Android phone recognized when plugged in to a different computer?

A friend has a brand new Samsung Windows 8 computer. She was having trouble with getting any pages to load on both Firefox and IE. I ran Malware Bytes and Adware on it. MB found 1389 PUPs. I noticed "snap.do" on her IE, and I believe got rid of that. Had to restart per MB and then neither browser would connect to the internet. Got FF working, but not IE. 
 
Today she messaged that she cannot get her phone or tablet to sync.The computer tells her that the Windows password is incorrect. I suspect either not all the problems are removed and/or that IE not connecting is the issue. Help please!
 
ETA: Kaspersky antivirus purchased and installed by the Geek Squad. I am not familiar with the program other than their freebie online scanner.

how do i connect a cell phone with bluetooth to a laptop with bluetooth?
 

A:how do i connect a bluetooth cell phone to laptops?

What OS? In windows you simply set your cell phone to discoverable in the bluetooth settings and then in your bluetooth places you discover devices. It should walk you through the pairing process from there.

A:how to connect the pc to wifi through a windows mobile phone

Not a good idea to put your email address in posts unless you enjoy bots sending you all kind of spam email.

What you are trying to do is called Tethering. Most cell phone providers do have this option but I believe technically you have to pay for it. There are hacks around it though. I know how to do it on my Palm not sure about windows mobile.
I would google search for: htc touch tethering
You will get lots of hits.

Hi,

I?m trying to connect my Samsung Galaxy S III to my new Asus LX302L via bluetooth.
Both have bluetooth vers. 4 and I have successfully connected other units to my phone earlier but now it doesn't work.

I can "see" both units and they are linked together via password but that's it.
After I linked them together, the status information on the computer says "Not connectet" for the phone. The same information is the phone saying about the computer.
All drivers are up to date.

I want to use my phone as a remote using "Unified remote" and I also want to play music via the phone out to the computer speakers. This I have been able to do with my old computer (windows 7) but now it doesn't work.

What should I do?

Best regards,
David

Hi falkenow And Welcome To Eight Forums,
First Thing we have to check is see if the "Bluetooth Support Service" is running and set to "Automatic" by going to services.msc in the search.

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop with Windows 7 32bit Home Premium Edition 1GB RAM. i had to take it apart to replace the dc port in it last week and then also had to replace the ac adapter as well. Now that i have it back together and everything works it won't connect to the wireless internet. I don't have my own internet currently so i tried various public access points. It will detect a network (though no signal) but won't connect even though everyone else can connect. I'm using a desktop at the public library currently. All my drivers are updated and it says everything is working properly. It's a Broadband 802.11g wireless network adapter. ok, change that from won't connect to EXTREMELY low signal. i'm right next to the router and have 1 bar for a signal and it connected. Any ideas what's going on with my signal issues?

Lately I've been having a problem with my laptop. The internet at home runs very slowly on it. I've tried the home wifi and I've tried direct...still slow. We have several laptops that we've tested and this problem only happens on my laptop and only at home. I've recently tested my laptop on several free public wifi connections and it runs great.

I've tried deleting the home connection and starting over but that hasn't worked either.

Thank you in advance as any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
