  1. Thanks, but no, I've done a couple of restores since in case that was the problem, but to no avail.
  2. Could anyone shed any more light on this? i still have the same problem and I'm dumbfounded as to what it could be! Thanks in advance if anyone can!
  3. I wasn't aware of two modes. How do I tell which one I'm in, or change modes? EDIT: Ah, presumably from the folder options/view tab?
  4. Hi folks. After a bit of help if anyone can - I'm stumped myself. I've been setting up a WLAN for a client of mine. It runs from a Netgear Dg834 router via ethernet to a desktop machine running XP Home SP2. Two other clients then connect to the router via PCMCIA cards - these machines run Win ME and Win XP Pro SP2. Now, all the machines can connect to the net fine. Last Friday, all the machines could also network, copy from one machine to another and vice versa. On Tuesday, everything changed. Now, the Win ME machine can see and connect to both Win XP machines no problem, copy files, change files etc. Permissions are correctly set on all three clients. Likewise, the Win XP machines can both see and copy to and from the Win ME machine. However, neither Win XP machine can connect to the other XP machine. When you browse the network and click the client name, a pop-up comes up asking for a password. There is no password set, except for the WPAPSK key, and the password to gain access to the router control panel. I've spent two hours on the thing, done everything I can think of, including set up a new network, try connecting via ethernet instead of WLAN and so on - same result in all cases. Neither XP machine can connect to the other XP machine. Could anyone suggest a resolution to this problem? I'm tempted otherwise to format/reinstall, as I found a trojan on the XP Home machine yesterday, and I fear this may somehow have corrupted some settings. Thanks.
  5. I figured I could spend several more hours looking for the problem, or I could format and re-install the whole damn OS in 20 mins. In fact, from dropping the partition to getting back to a nice clean desktop took 19 minutes. I had all my stuff backed up on the D drive, so simply copied it back, reinstalled all my apps - and hey presto. It worked. Still don't know what the problem was, though.
  6. Thanks. Looks like it's associated correctly, it just won't run. I'm getting the "Java Virtual Machine Launcher:Could not find the main class - program will exit" error now.
  7. About a month ago, i installed the Nokia PC Suite on my machine (Win XP Pro SP2) to manage the content on my cellphone. Yesterday, I went to run a .jar application from CDROM, and found that Windows has associated this file with the Nokia installer, and so it (windoze) tried to open it with the Nokia program for some reason. So, I uninstalled the Nokia software, and discovered that the .jar file had lost all its associations. I have tried to re-associate it with the javaw program in C:/Program Files/Java/bin/javaw, but it still won't work. I presume this is the correct file to try and run a .jar executable? My problem is that I really need to be able to install this new program, and I'm a bit buggered if I can't. Can anyone suggest a fix? I've uninstalled and reinstalled the latest JRE from Sun Microsystems in case that hd become corrupted somehow, and reinstalled and the uninstalled again the Nokia software. I've also tried a couple of System Restores back to before the Nokia software was installed, but it won't restore back to them. TIA.
  8. Just a quick note to say thanks for everyone's help - especially you, Enterprise. Got everything up and running today, all hunky-dory. Couldnt get WPA to work properly - if enabled on one machine, the other couldn't connect, no matter how I fiddled with the settings - but given the fact that its a real old house, super-thick walls and that the signal can't even be picked up on a different floor, let alone outside the house, I'm not too worried. Thanks again.
  9. That's the kitty. I've half-solved the problem. I can now connect and browse the net fine via IE. But if I go to open AOL 9.0, it asks me to sign in with the screen name etc and tries to make the connection - but the router's already made the connection. So this is why it falls over, I guess. So my only problem now is getting AOL 9.0 browser to use the router - IE can use it fine. Do you follow me?
  10. Sorry, bit of a typo It is: F5D7632uk4 along with the F5D7010uk lappie card. There's also a USB dongle to connect the other PC downstairs, but I haven't got that far yet. As I said, its not my setup so I'm not sure about which package : just the regular Broadband one I guess (comes with the red CD, "no limits" logo on it - sorry being a bit vague here - they don't know either).
  11. Its a Belkin Router / Modem , model 7630 I think - I have been reading stuff about Belkin not being 100% compatabile with AOL, so it may be going back to the shop.
  12. No, you've lost me. So, the wireless card connects to the router? Or the modem? Either way, when I go into the AOL settings and ask it to detect a new modem (as the existing one is no longer required), it doesn't detect anything. So, does it need to be hard-wired to detect it? Or should it detect it via the wireless card? If so, how do I get it to do this? Sorry for sounding like such a moron, I've never done this before. Also - how do I get the PC downstairs to work with the new connection? Just plug in the USB device and that's it???
