I should note, Legacy Support is mainly/originally intended to service computer and other tech problems, but there is no reason I cant help with other problems. I approach things with the mindset that whatever it is I can fix it, even if I don't know how to fix it I know how to learn how to fix it, so if you have any problems at all don't hesitate to contact me here.
Computer wont turn on? Legacy Support is here to help.
TV on the fritz? Ill walk you through some things that might fix it no problem.
Lost in your relationship? Calm down, have a seat, lets have a talk.
Whatever it is I've got you covered.
But recently a friend did ask me for help so here we go.
Your Network And You
Icons Are Your Friends
- You know that your device is connected to a network. This means that information is being or can be transferred from the device to the router/modem/network and vice verse.
- You can presume that the network you are connected to is connected to the internet. This may not necessarily be true, I have connected my iPod touch to a network that has no internet, but this network was not meant to be connected to the internet. Chances are if you are complaining about poor internet connection the network you are using is meant to have internet, or else you might consider not connecting your various devices to networks you know little about.
This next icon is similar quite similar.
I haven't been able to reproduce a scenario on any of my machines where the first network failed icon does not become this icon after a few seconds. They mean effectively the same thing.
- Your device is connected to what it thinks should be a network but it is not behaving as a network.
- The "network" your device is connected to probably does not have an internet connection, and even if it does it is not suitable for your device to use. Typically this icon will show up when your device has a Logical Connection but has no actual network cards or Ethernet cables to use this connection. It's a fairly specific icon and will probably only be relevant if you use networking programs such as Hamachi.
Beyond A Glance
- Your computer is the problem and is unable to connect to the network.
- your network is off or is invisible to your device.
