No, not phone number, phone BRAND and MODEL.

Do you get that my computer is not connected to the internet so you cant connect?

Yes, I am fully aware of that. What we want to do know is to connect your phone to wifi > connect your phone to the computer so that your computer can have access to a computer. But before I can do that I know to know what is the brand and model of your phone.

Ok i have acces nowz thank you.
you can connect to my computer now. I would need to get the link in my emaila I guess?

If you're referring to the $39 remote control service, I'm afraid I won't be able to accept it at this moment.

Meanwhile, you can perform the windows update from your phone now since your computer can access the internet.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
you think that the update are the reason i cant connect to wifi?

No, but the update can fix most problems with your system including internet connections.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
if it does not solve the problem can i have someone to connect to my computer to fix it?

Sure, of course, you can try to perform updates and check if that helps. Also, online experts right now can connect to your computer sooner as long as they will see that you have accepted the secure remote request.

In addition, I can still assist you if the problem still persists.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
i did click on that but it says that the technician is not available. I would prefer to have someone look at it. It works with my phone but not without

Okay, if that is the case I will accept the offer so I can connect with you, is that okay?
