My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be assisting you with this issue
are you using a network cable or wireless to connect the Matricon to the router?
does it show that it is connected to the wireless?
Dlink says that I am connected Matricom says "No internet connection"
ok the matricon
can you open the command prompt
a black window will come up
and type:ipconfig /all
Fully chareged windo is followed by a black window
Where do I type ipconfig/all
in the black window
just type:ipconfig /all
there is a space between the g and the /
How do I do that ?
do you see the black window
click on it and then use the keyboard
The Gtab Matricom screen flashed on for a moment. The returned to Black.
Earlier (before I called you) The screen usually offered a box of numbers and the no internet connection at the bottom
that's what i was after
the ip addresses
AS far as I know the IP is 192.168.0.1
i think that's the ip address of the router
have you tried removing the wireless connection
and then searching for your wireless and adding it back in
The tablet was connected before. There are no connections to the tablet now
Ok so it can't detect the router?
or the wireless network?
try moving closer to the router and then restarting the tablet
D-link has three wires coming out
do you see one for the power a black cable?
A white cable to the internet A blue cable from the internet port and a black cable from the 5V 1A port
unplug the black cable which will turn off the router
and we will lose connection
wait for about 30 seconds then plug it back in
Much earlier,(before calling you) I tried to unconnect both sets of cables, waited, then replugged and got no improvement
what are you using right now to chat with me?
are you still there?
Should I connect the ttablet to the computer with the USB cable and then type in ipconfig /all ?
no it's fine
based on what you described it is not picking up the wireless network
did you restart the router already?
We have now been disconnected for over 30 minutes. Most of what you suggested I have already don. You did not tell me how to insert the ipconfig /all.
you cannot on the tablet
you will need to install an app to check your ip address
we need to figure out why the tablet is not picking up the wireless signal
so a few basic tests:
is the wireless turned on
on the tablet
It is now 1:07 AM. Pls let me know at whet time we can reconnect to resolve the problem. I do not know how to "install an app" Nor do I know how to type a response to the tablet, ie what you told me to enter (ipconfig /all)
ok when you're available just leave me a message here
and I will reconnect
It is now Monday afternoon. I will be available for most of today.
Earlier I got a message that said that data was loading. It is now 2:45 and I still have not heard from you. Please let me know at what time I should get on line with you again
At this point the tablet is plugged in. It shows a number pad, an inverted tblank triangle and an intercom not connected message. last night you said use the keyboard
ipconfig /all how do I do this ?
apologies i never received your notifications
and Hi to you
ok are you able to confirm that your wireless is turned on for the Matricon?
I was very unhappy when you dropped me and left me hanging last night.
I noticed you left
and when you come back I didn't receive an email
It is plugged in. The last time I looked at it there was a keypad, a blank triangle, and "internet is not connected"
sorry what do you mean it's plugged in?
The black wire is inserted. I assume that it is not in wireless, Should I unplug ?
no that's fine
on you Matricon
is the wireless turn on?
let me unplug and see. One moment
turning on the wireless on the Matricom is just a setting
if you go to system settings
is it that selected
I have no idea what you mean. Please clarify. (I am a total amateur)
ok on the Matricom
what do you see at the moment?
do you see icons on the homepage
the matricom is turned on and there are no connections to anything
press the menu button
then do you see system settings
what menu button
on the Matricom
or slide down from the top to the bottom
so at the top of the screen to the bottom
if you slide your finger down do you see the notification menu
I get ONLY the screen with the number pad. On some occasions Ive gotten two icons at the bottom one ha s turned the menu on and the other is a return (I think) when I push either one the screen goes black
ok can you hold onto the power button on the Matricom
keep holding until it turns off
Just tried that key pad for a moment, then black
did it black again
did you hold onto the power button?
Let me try again
keep holding onto it until it completely goes off
Matricom flashed. then black. held it, stayed black
has it always been black?
did you ever see any of the icons ?
so when did it start going just black?
almost immediately after the Maricom image flashed on momentarily
i mean when did this problem started?
was it after a firmware upgrade
it should just go to a black screen
Yesterday, before I contacted you people, I started the server from its CD disk. I got the message at the end that it was connected. However The matricom always said "no internet connection'. I tried inserting a clip into the reset hole and nothing happened. I tried the reset BOTH on the server and on the Matricom and nothing happened. So I restarted the set up for the server again
Seems like the process ended prematurely
to reset the matricom
BTW, when you use jargon, I almost never ubderstand what you are talking about.
basically something went wrong
when you try to restart the matricom
which is why you're getting a black screen
Let me briefly review. 1. I set up the server and got "connected". 2. I turned on Matricom (sometimes connected, sometimes wireless). Invariably I got the number pad and the "no internet connection" 3. I tried the reset on both the server and the Verizon connector. REpeated tha above. Number pad and then black.
just to confirm, is the whole screen black
you cannot press any buttons
When I press the start button or that and the volume button I get the Matricom Image, the fully loaded (Battery) image followed by the number pad or black
yes it sounds the software is corrupted
and it is not starting
Thats why I contacted you
SO far, you are telling me what I know already
What can I change and how ? Waht diagnostic tests can you ()or I) run ? Can I connect with the USB cord and we do something from the computer ?
you need to perform a firmware recovery which is very technical
i needed to confirm the status of the matricom
because what you were saying didn't make much sense to me
so the options are:
1. Another expert with remote access will need to connect to your computer and perform the firmware recovery
you will need to have the unit connected to the computer via usb
unfortunately I am not allowed to use remote access so someone else will need to do this
2. Take it to a local phone repaier
I don't know what you mean. But is this something that I can do ? (IT doesnt make much sense to me either) The day before I was playin Wordfeud with my daughter and when I tried again the following day, I got the "no internet connection: when I started up..... I will follow your suggestions. (Where do I find a phone repairer ?) so let me punch OK and we'll call it quits
Which state are you in?
New York (upstate)
there are plenty of phone repairers
You, of course will get paid $24. I still have the problem---I dont think that I was helped.
I provided the advice, it will be too difficult to tell you the instructions over this chat
if you're unhappy you can ask for a refund
I Understand who do I connect to to ask for a refund ?
I can send this to the moderator
PLease do so. Then what is my next step ? Please send me an address
there are no next steps. Someone will contact you
but will you be following my advice?
and bringing it to a local repairer?
TY good bye
because that's still advice I provided you even though it wasn't fixed
