My Internet doesn't Work on Android




A quick guide on how to fix the internet on your Android Smartphone if it doesn't show up.

1. Know who your service provider is. This can generally be found on your Sim Card. If I were on Vodafone I'd know as the Sim Card says Vodafone.

    2. Use Google (or use your favourite search engine) to find your Provider's APN (Access Point Names)             settings. A search for Vodafone Australia APN settings comes up with this page http://blog.vodafone.com.au/blog/how-to-set-up-your-apn-settings-for-android/.

    3. Go onto your phone and click the menu button on your phone, then settings. From there click on Wireless & Networks then Mobile Networks and then Access Point Names.

   4. Press your phone's menu button and then New APN.
 
   5. Fill in APN Settings. Menu button and then save to get it working.



  Hope this helps

Fake Runescape Emails

Very recently I've been receiving multiple emails a day claiming to be from Jagex (the company behind the MMORPG, Runescape).

I don't personally play Runescape but someone in the household does.These emails really tick me off because you can't block one email as they come from a variety of (presumably hacked emails)

Below is a screenshot showing what and how these fake emails are delivered. Note how the whole email is authentic except that the hackers changed the link to direct you to their own malicious web form.

Also this email was not "sent" to me. My email that this is coming to is md******@bigpond.net.au and the attack was obviously a dictionary attack (the email in the To: column)
