How's your signal strength?

If the signal isn't the problem, you might find that it helps to shut down your PC and your router, unplug them for five minutes, and then start everything up again. Mind you, this might work, but you don't want to have to do it several times a day. So there are a couple of other possibilities to try...

How many other things is your PC trying to do, especially via USB? I know they say you can connect 127 USB devices at once, but many PCs start to 'act confused' if you connect more than four or five USB devices. Try the adapter without any other devices connected and see if it performs better. If you're into multitasking (simultaneously running a printer, MP3 player, wireless adapter, external hard drive, speaker set, number pad and missile launcher), then you may have to compromise.

Hope that helps a bit. Good luck!

How do I transfer photos from my laptop to my sm-P900 samsung tablet

Connect Samsung to laptop via USB cable. Laptop should mount the Samsung as one of your hard drives. You can then drag and drop files back and forth between the two.

My router keeps dropping the internet connection. The ISP checked and said it was "unstable". They sent me a test modem which I am using now and this solved the connection problem. They suggested...

The reset button resets the router to its factory default settings. It's really there for if you forget the password into the router you can reset it and set it up from scratch again. Beware of this button because you will have to set the router up again if you press it - including your broadband username and password which most people have long forgotten and lost the documentation for!

As to the connection being dropped, this reeks of MTU problems - ask your ISP for their reccomended MTU setting and then put that in the router, if thats already in then try both a lower number then a higher number and see what happens.
(MTU is Maximum Transmittable Unit - essentially how big the packets it can transmit back and forth - if the packets are bigger than the router will accept then they get dropped, and if they are smaller then you are losing speed) - dropped packets = dropped connection.

And finally, upgrading the router software. Go to Belkin site and find the firmware for your router model. follow the steps to install this on the router.
In fact I've just found it for you and linked it below, hope it helps

Word of warning - follow the steps exactly when updating firmware - you can easily 'brick' your router if anything fails or you cancel halfway through.

Cartridge Problem

This just simply means that it can't see your ink cartridge. I would suggest that you clean off the contacts with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. this will ensure the best connection. If the machine was dropped recently or gone under some abuse, then it is likely that the cable that connects to the shuttle that moves the cartridge back and forth has come loose.

Continuous open phone line

see what kind of telephone cord do you use.
For Ricoh fax to work properly the telephone cord should have only two wires.
if yours cord has more than two wires don't worry simply on one end of the cord cut the two other wires i prefer to cut the wires on the end where the fax is connected.
Remember cut the two wires from the outside of the cord and left to be connected just the two wires from the inside. As you will see the cord is flat and there has four wires one to another so as i had sad cu the two wires from the left and right side and there will be connected only the middle two wires

Digital Camera Fault

ACCESS error could happen when lens gets stuck but if it happens when lens moves back and forth without problem it usually means that where the lens assembly plugs into main system board connection is loose. These connections are held in place by a very small thin fragile plastic clip and a few drops could be enough to snap it but not do any other noticeable damage to camera. Camera would need to be opened to see if clip is broken or maybe cable just needs to me reinserted. Either way only open camera if no longer under warranty and you are somewhat handy
