  1. I have had better luck with the PCL 5e driver, then the 5 or 6. Works with XP, Vista, and 7.
  2. Just remember, wireless has security concerns. Be sure to change the Router's user name and password, setup your own SSID and use WPA or better encryption. And as Joe C. said " You can just not use the other ports and if by some strange chance in your future, you'll have the extra ports if you need them. "
  3. Here is a link to Microsoft's IP rebuild tool. Do you want to rebuild TCP/IP or just renew your connection?
  4. I don't think there is much you can do if the file is corrupted. Found this at the Microsoft website. Here is something Jojesa suggested in an earlier topic. You might give it a try. 1- Open Outlook Express. Click the Tools menu. 2- Select Options, then click the Maintenance tab. 3- Click the Store Folder button. Browse for the name of the folder where your files were stored. These files often include outgoing email messages or messages that you sent to someone. Write the name of the folder. 4- Close Outlook Express. 5- Double-click the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop. 6- Click "Restore all items" in the left pane (especially “.bak files”). 7- Close the Recycle Bin. 8- Right-click on the Start button and select “Explore”. 9- Find the folder you browsed and did write in step 3** 10- You will see the Sent Items.dbx file and the Sent Items.bak. file. - Rename the Sent Items.DBX to Sentold.dbx. Rename the Sent Items.Bak to Sent Items.DBX. - Open Outlook Express. Your messages should be restored. **Note: You might need to enable hidden folders & Files. Open any folder, click Tools then select Folder Options and click the View tab. Make sure to check “Show hidden files and folders”, uncheck "Hide protected operating system files", also uncheck “Hide extensions of known file types”. On Vista enable “Display hidden and system files”.
  5. You need to talk to your IT administrator, your trying to go around security policy could and probably would cause your company's info to be hacked.
  6. First I would check my computer name and workgroup name on both computers. Have you installed any new service pack updates that may have changed file settings on your computers. If you do not see anything, try setting up your network using a new workgroup name. Just be aware that you will have to re-map any previously mapped drives or printer.
  7. Is the disconnect happening when the microwave or cordless telephone is being used? maybe it is interference. Try moving the wireless router.
  8. Had cable and it did the same thing yours is doing. Cable company came out rewired the house... same thing, checked down line from pole with meter......same thing. Now have DSL.
  9. Have you tried a new network card? The card could be going bad loosing the connection intermittently.
  10. My last thought would be Windows Service pack 3. I have had problems with service pack3 on older computers. It will cause them to creep along. You might try and uninstall the service pack in Control Panel.You will then need to install the updates for service pack2. Or you could do a complete clean install of Windows.
  11. The other anti-virus program is listed as Eset online scanner. Spybot is not an anti-virus program. Try finding Eset and turn it off or uninstall it.
  12. Hi Jess, Looks like you have two anti-virus programs running at the same time. Try uninstalling one of the programs. I would keep the AVG program and get rid of the other, it's up to you.
  13. Go to My Computer on the desktop and right click, go to properties, look at the Tabs, find computer name and see what the name shows in the box. That is the name to type in the run box on the laptop after the \\. I am thinking the name of the desktop is different.
  14. Go to the computer (desktop) and click on My Computer see if there is a hand under the icon for C: drive. If it is then the drive is shared and you will need to go to the laptop and open the run box. Type in the name of the desktop and you should see the shared drive. You then need to map the desktop drive to the laptop, at the laptop. Don't forget to put two backslashes before the name of the desktop.
  15. Once you have Mapped the folder or drive you wish to share, go to the other compter and open the run command. In the run command box, type the name of the computer you have the share folder or shared drive in the box. Use two backslashses and the name of the computer, such as "" \\name " (without the quote marks). This should open the window showing the shared drive. or navigate to the folder and map it to your computer. You will need to know the name of the computer to make it work.
