HP Mini 210 on Windows 7 starter can see wifi network but can't connct

Q: HP Mini 210 on Windows 7 starter can see wifi network but can't connct

I'm trying to set up wifi on an HP mini 210 with windows 7 starter installed. I'm sharing internet via an iMac with airport (connected via ethernet.) My iMac settings appear to be correct (I can connect my iPod Touch and Kindle no problem.)
When I try to connect the HP my network name appears in the list of available wifi sources and lists all the details (WEP, 802.11n, SSID) but when I click 'connect' it says 'Windows was unable to connect' without requesting a password (and troubleshooting finds no problems.)

I've tried different settings (changing my network name, password, and from 40-bit {5 digit password} to 128-bit {13 digit password}) with no success. I've tried manually adding the network to the HP through the Network and sharing centre with no luck either.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Instead of using WEP which can be hacked easily, I would try changing your network security to WPA2.
Here's How: What AirPort security settings should I choose? | Mac Support Central

Now, see if you can connect your HP Mini, then configure the rest of your wireless devices as well to connect to a higher wireless security.

i'm upgrading the messy computer network at our clinic. here is a brief setup:
all Windows 7 32-bit ultimate and 2010 MAC mini as file sharing server
all computers have WIFI-n cards capability
2 computers running critical scheduling SW.

at the moment they are connecting via WIFI, however, i would like to be able the setup X-cable link between them and utilize the network traffic for the scheduling application (shared database with R/W access by both computers)

The WIFI should be for occasional internet use and grabbing documents from the MAC server, most of the traffic will be local however.

Can i somehow configure the ethernet between these 2 desktops, 1Gbit speed and force the application to use that rather then the slower WIFI ?
4 laptops with WIFI

connecting to shared folders according to each therapist, storing all important documents remotely with R/W access.
Mostly MS WORD documents and some internet use.

* i still need to figure out how to configure MAC mine server with properly shared folders with correct permission as some have R/W access, some only R access
The main Q is Ethernet priority traffic over WIFI, if that's possible ?

You must press F11 as soon as you switch on the computer - if you miss the right moment it won't do anything.

If that doesn't work, switch off, switch on again and try F10 instead.

My daughter has an eMachines Mini laptop that has the windows 7 Starter edition on it. Recently it has gone down with no explanation as to why. I've tried everything I can think of so I decided to come here. When you first turn on the eMachine it acts like it's going to boot up but then it goes to a page that displays the following message:



STATUS: 0X000000F


The eMachine Mini does not have a disc because it does not have a disc drive. I can't get past this menu no matter what I do. I can restart and get into the boot menu by pushing F12, and I can access the F2 menu. But I can not access anything else. Does anyone have any helpful advice?

A:Emachines Mini and Windows 7 Starter

Reboot and tap the key given for BIOS setup to see if the HD is detected under Storage devices.

Then reboot and tap F8 key to see if you can access System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair or if that fails System Restore.

If not boot into the Win7 installer written to a flash stick from Step 5 in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start to run Startup Repair to see if it finds anything to repair. If not start at the top of the steps using the bootable flash stick alternatives for bootable AV scan, Partition Wizard and other disks needed.

Let me begin by saying I am a novice computer user and I appreciate your patience while helping me through this problem.

My HP 110-3030NR Netbook is completely wiped clean at the moment. I have a bootable USB with a copy of Windows 7 Starter. I insert the USB, boot the netbook and go through the motions of selecting language and accepting terms and conditions. I get to the infamous "Where do you want to install Windows?" screen.

If I try to install on partition #2 it says...

If I try to install on partition #1 it says...

So... I gotta admit I sort of became a traitor and tried installing Linux 10 Mint because I had been told Linux will handle all partition problems itself. Well, that didn't work, it seems to be the same type of problem with a different error name, with Linux it said, "The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI2 (0,0,0) (sdb) failed".

So I gave up on that and am now BACK to trying to install Windows 7 Starter. The only difference is that NOW when I get to "Where do you want to install Windows?" there aren't ANY partitions and at the bottom it says, "No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation".

I have been to the HP website and cannot find any Mass Storage Drivers, all I found were upgrades and patches. I loaded a few promising ones on a USB and tried to load them but the computer wouldn't even recognize them.

I have read thread after... Read more

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You will need to go into the BIOS and make sure that the first boot device is set to your USB drive.

I'm not absolutely certain for your computer, but if you hit the F10 key when you boot up it should open up the BIOS for you.

You may get help from the HP Netbook forums on your BIOS configuration.

I want to buy a mini laptop to my kid ( age 9) for watching movies and browisng internet , netflix and some not so intensive games. I see a deal on ebay, but not sure of 1 GB Ram is sufficient for decent speed. Unfortunately, I can't increase the RAM either. Wants a expert opinion.
Operating System: Genuine Windows 7 Starter

Processor: Intel Atom Processor N455

Processor Speed: 1.66GHz

Processor Cache: 512KB L2

BUS Speed: 667Mhz FSB

Memory: 1GB DDR3 System Memory (1 DIMM) MAX Supported = 1GB

Accessible Memory Slots: 1

Appreciate any alternatives.

A:is 1 GB RAM good enough for decent speed for Windows 7 starter mini

I'd say 1GB is okay for Windows 7 Starter, but for any other edition 2GB would be much preferred.

What I'm more worried about is whether the Atom CPU is powerful enough for movie playback, including Netflix. I would definitely expect problems with HD movies (720p or 1080p resolutions, files encoded with H.264 or VC1).

A "full-size" laptop might be a better option than a netbook. A low-to-mid range model should do just fine here.

So I acquired this Inspirion mini from my sister a couple of days ago (she had it sitting in storage for a few months) and originally planned to have it factory reset so I could use it mainly for a trip I have coming up and for a good note taking laptop that's small and convenient. She bought it (I believe) about 2-3 years ago from a T-Mobile store locally. However, I went to do a standard factory reset on the model ran into an issue. She "claims" nothing was wrong with it but there are numerous randomly installed programs and I am assuming maleware of all kinds so I really just wanted to wipe the whole thing and start a new. When I went into the F8 recovery menu on start up, I select the "Repair My Computer" option and it goes into the load windows file screen, loads all the way across the screen and then goes blank and starts into windows normally. Somehow there is a problem with either accessing the system recovery program (or maybe a partition problem?) I have no idea.

A:Dell Inspirion mini 10 (T-Mobile) can not factory reset in Windows 7 Starter

Is there a Recovery Partition shown in Disk Management? F8 on a Dell with Windows 7 is the correct key to start a reset. On XP it was down by holding the Ctrl key while tapping F11.
If there is no recovery partition, call Dell support with the service tag, they should provide you with a disk minimal cost. If a disk you will have to transfer it to a USB key.
Windows 7 Starter is actually a pretty bad OS compared to the full version. If Dell does not give you the disk take a look at Linux Mint Xfce. Depending on what software you use and how you plan on using the netbook, i.e. check email and browse the internet, you should do fine with Mint.

We just got an Asus EEE netbook that has Windows 7 Starter edition on it.

An annoying problem with it is that even after setting our home wifi as the Home wifi connection, and I seem to remember also specifying that it should connect automatically in some dialog box during first-time setup, it defaults to needing to be manually connected every time. And there is no option anywhere to be found to set it for Auto. So I can not reset it to auto. There is no option available to do it anywhere that I can find.

To vent just a little: how could such a really obvious flaw like this go out to market? OK that's a rhetorical question. Of course a NETbook ought to be able to have its wifi set to connect automatically. It looks to me like some overzealous programmer has written in a non-overrideable default setting of 'manual connect' on this. Thanks, guy.

I searched online for a solution to this and could not find anything. There was one set of instructions I did find that supposedly pertained to both Vista and Win 7, but I hit a dead end because a folder it told me to go to (WLANServices) did not exist in this Win7 Starter version I have.

Also if anyone has the name and address of the programmer, that would be good too. I have a bag of something I want to mail to him.

thanks for any help

My daughter had received a Dell Inspiron mini with Windows 7 starter preloaded. At some point it started crashing when attempting to connnect to our network (in home) to get on internet. I also noticed it would not run windows updates. After some research discovered possible virus. I did run several spyware, malware programs and was able to remove fake trojans. Everything seemed to be going well until I rebooted. The system now boots to system recovery options. Knowing there is nothing really on the computer to loose, I have tried ever option. When it runs startup repair, it is unable to repair the problem. I have tryed system restore, I picked a point previous to problems start, it said it restored it but it still boots back to system recovery options. I tried the image recover and factory image recovery. If i go to command prompt I even started the setup.exe and was going to reinstall but it says it needs some drivers and for me to insert dvd/cd. I dont have one since it came preinstalled, or at least I have never seen one with this machine. I can view in dos prompt everything on the machine. Every time I reboot it goes back in to repair cycle with no repair. Any help greatly appreciated.

I had also run a few of the tools such as the GMER and Combofix before landing on this site. So i appologize in advance if this could cause more headache. I did however manage to save all the original logs if need-be.

The computer itself is actually running much faster however, without the internet connection I can't tell if the redirect was cured.

most of them are via WIFI-n DLINK router, one via ethernet. on the network is also mac mini 2010 server running SMB for file sharing services. the server is not showing by default ether.

at some point i began to notice that not all computers are showing under the "network" in windows explorer.
i can easily ping all computers by IP or name without problems. i can always force open the computers shared files.

i can force browse any computer by: \\pc-name just fine

later on i've discovered that turning on the GUEST MODE mode in the SMB setting made all those problems disappear.

the full tread is described here:

the 3 new desktops, do not show a log-in prompt window when connecting to a shared folder on the SMB server. i don't know why.
the 4 laptops require login every time and it's easy to track the permissions.

also, i see in the connection tab in the SMB a mysterious DENY_NONE user. that seems to be the one when the GUEST MODE is on.

sorry about the long post but i don't know of any other way to get these questions answered. i have had for some time a home network consisting of 3 desktops(all with win XP) and they share a common printer. i just recently got a laptop with win 7 starter with wireless internet con. i would like to network the new laptop with win7 starter to my existing win XP network but windows 7 starter says i can't without spending some more $$ with microsoft.
in win 7, to to control panel > homegroup > introducing homegroup. it says, "you can't create your own homegroup with this edition but you can join one created by someone on your network who is running win 7 home premium, . . . ."

questions: (1) does this statement mean that if i bought the full-blown ver (home premium), i could then install it on one of the three computers and create a homegroup and then be able to share files and printer with the laptop that contains win7 starter ? ? (2) (keeping in mind i need to network all 4 computers and the printer) would i have to install the win 7 home premium on all three of the computers or could i just install it on one and leave the other two with XP. (3) to install home premium on all three, would i have to puchase a license for each pc or would i be able to install it on all three for the same nickel.

I have a 600 g1 mini running Win10.  I put in a combo wifi blue tooth module into the m.2 slot that is under the hard drive.  Windows recognizes the module abs shows that both wifi and Bluetooth are working.  When I try to connect to any device or a wireless router I get nothing,  I'm assuming that there is no signal being broadcast or detected because I have no antenna connection.  The parts list indicates that an antenna exists.  Where is it?  Thanks in advance.

I have gone through nearly every single thread made by someone with the same problem, but everything I have tried has ended up unsuccessful. I am at the end of my rope with this problem, and it needs to be corrected now. I'm a senior in high school and using my mother's Asus eee PC (model number 1001PXD) for classes. Since this netbook does not have access to the school's networks, I am using the multiple "Guest" access points. For some reason, I am able to connect in some areas with little to no trouble out of the "Unidentified Network" problem during certain times of the day, and others I can't connect at all (ironically, this usually happens when I REALLY need to access the internet for online courses). I am not at all far from any of the access points, and the signal is excellent when I DO manage to log on.

The same netbook logs on to the networks in mine and my grandmother's homes no problem. It only has an issue with the school's "Guest" network.

I don't know if this is significant or not, but I find it rather curious that my Nintendo 3DS cannot connect to the "Guest" network at all.

I will include a screenshot of my "IPCONFIG /all" settings, and I will post more if needed. Please, any suggestions are helpful... My graduation is at stake here... I really need your help.

Hello all!
My friend got a HP Mini 210 from Verizon, I believe a few years ago. It has a sim slot, but there isn't a sim card in it. I don't know if she took it out, or if she never needed one.
It is an HP Mini 210 running Windows 7 Starter.
Apparently she isn't using Verizon anymore, as she recently bought a T-Mobile hot spot instead. She can't get it to connect to the T-Mobile hot spot wifi, and I brought it home, and can't get it to connect to my home wifi either. Well actually it says "Connected" but "No Internet Access." Internet is fine and working well, so that is not the problem.
The Verizon connection is under Dial up and VPN(I think it is broadband), do I need to remove this connection to get the wifi to connect properly? It is not connected to the Verizon connection though. Is it possible that this laptop is "locked" to Verizon the way cell phones are?
The Troubleshooter says "Windows can't communicate with the device or resource. (primary DNS server)
This isn't my computer, so I am hesitant to do anything that I am not sure about. Any help would be awesome!

A:HP Mini from Verizon won't connect to wifi

They probably set a Proxy in the unit, either in Internet Explorer, or in the Registry.  Yes, delete the Verizon connection in Internet Options, in the Connections tab.  Check for a proxy in that same tab.

I have an Acer 11.6" Aspire One AO751H netbook. I want to upgrade the wireless-G to N. This model takes the half size mini pci-e cards. I just recently purchased the Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 card. Installed it yesterday, booted the computer, and so far so good. It recognized the card right away and the driver installation was successful. The wifi activity light works, the card is recognized, but it is unable to detect any networks. It just flashes that little balloon at the bottom saying "wireless networks unavailable". Try to refresh the network list, and i still get nothing. I tried turning the card off, then on again, but nothing. I checked on the driver in Device Manager, and it says it is functioning properly.

I have the most up-to-date BIOS and I am running 32-bit XP Pro (downgraded from the factory installed VISTA). I was wondering if maybe there was an issue with the antennas? The 5300 card has 3 antenna inputs, but the laptop only has two antennas. I was told on numerous forums that it would still function fine with only two antennas, however. I obtained the most up-to-date driver for the card right from intel's website and it installed without any issues at all. Does anyone have any input on to why this card seems to have installed fine, but cannot detect wireless networks? Should I try an older driver? I know many people have upgraded the wifi in this Aspire Ones, so I can't see it simply being incompatible.

There are a couple ways to do this and it will show all machines in your network but it's not quite like the network map. The link below shows you how.

For the network map just go to the network and sharing center and click on "see full map". There are some limitations with windows 7 starter for instance, you can't create a Homegroup but you can join one.

My motherboard got a port called Mini PCIE. It looks similar to the standard PCIE port but is much smaller (I guess that's why it's called mini ) AND it appears to be tilted 90 degrees to the right if I'm right. So I would have to place the card vertically. Space seems to be limited. Of course I could be wrong on that.

Board type is MSI AM1i

Photo is below. The port in question is just next to the two SATA data ports. (actually on the left, in the second pictures)
I'd like to install a Wifi card there. Please tell me. How and where? Where am I supposed to place the antennas? Do you know any good cards? I didn't buy the card yet, only the motherboard

All the windows checked showed the device working properly but I finally replaced it with one of the better "n" cards out there. Same thing all over again. Put it right next to a working AP, cannot detect a thing. Antennae is hooked up properly.

If I plug a good WIFI stick into USB, it works immediately, no drama.

I have no idea what is preventing this from detecting anything. What should I be looking for?

A:WLAN Mini-card Good, but cannot detect WIFI ??

Hi zapp22,

It appears that the 'Wireless Card' is currently 'Disabled'; please check its status in 'BIOS' and 'enable' it if needed. To access 'BIOS' you may follow the steps listed below:
- Power off the laptop > Power it back on and at 'Dell splash screen', repeatedly tap 'F 2 key' (BIOS screen should appear) > Usually 'Dell Inspiron' laptops have a 'category' named 'Advanced' > Ensure that WLAN is enabled > 'Save Settings' and 'Exit'
(Note: BIOS setup may vary based on different laptop models)

If the wireless card still does not detect any networks in 'Windows', try tapping <Function><F2> or only <F2> if the previous key combination does not work. This is the 'radio control' for the 'Wireless Card' installed in the system.

Hope this helps. Do reply with the finding; would be glad to assist.

A is faster than B (i don't know why)

but on my windows 7 PC, i only see B (the slower one)
so where is A? i need this faster one, why does it show up on mobile devices but not on my Windows 7 PC?
when he set up the router, he said to me that the website ( - where you can set up your router, put password, etc) says "A is available for Mac and B is available for Windows PC". is this the reason?
but what about mobile devices, they can connect to both networks,
please help, thanks

A:WiFi network is not showing up on Windows 7

Other than the router's setup software, routers typically don't care about the OS of the machines connecting to it. But they do require that connecting devices operate on the protocols that it supports. If network A is running 802.11n and network B is 802.11g, and your PC can only do 802.11g, you will only be able to see B. If your PC can do 802.11n then you would likely see both.

Not sure if what I am trying to do is possible.

If I have two Windows 10 tablets and want to mirror the screens, do they need to both be on the same WiFi network or can this somehow be done directly between the devices?

I have head about something called WiDi and Miracast but not sure how to best use these.

If I were to take the two tablets I have out and about and wanted them to show the same screen wirelessly somehow is this possible? If not, could a cable be used - if so would this be HDMI? Ideally I would like a wireless solution if this exists.

I've heard the new build of Windows 10 might have improved screen sharing possibilities.

Is what I am wanting to do possible at all.

Any help or guidance would be great.

Thanks in advance.

A:Is it possible to mirror Windows 10 devices without a WiFi network?

Hello nswmuk, and welcome to Ten Forums.

If the wireless display (ex: TV) supports Miracast and is turned on for the device, then you'll be able to directly connect to the wireless display from your tablet if your tablet also supports Miracast.

If they don't, then yes you will still be able to connect the display to the tablet via HDMI cable to project (Win+P) the tablet's screen to the other display.

We have static persistent routes setup on the domain controllers in each office to force anything going to the other 10.10.xx.xx office to go out the MPLS router address of 10.10.xx.1. Every office has a variety of Linksys WRT54G model routers all setup the same for SSID, wireless security and such and are just used as access points instead of routers.

My problem is that I sent a laptop from the 10.10.10.x network over to the 10.10.40.x network and am unable to ping said laptop. (Cannot ping from that offices Domain Controller or my machine) I cannot ping the netbios name or the IP address. I looked in the Windows DHCP server Address Leases and that laptop has a record and an IP. The logged in user is only a Domain User so they cannot run ipconfig /release or /renew or repair their wifi connection. The user is however able to connect to our terminal server in another office(the one I am trying to ping from) just fine.

I have done the following to try resolving this issue:
1. Reboot the machine
2. Disable/Re-Enable the wifi on this Dell laptop using FN+F2
3. Run ipconfig /flushdns then reboot

There is no firewall between the office... Read more

I purchased a Sony Vaio laptop 2 months ago and it came with Windows 8 OS pre-installed. I have no IT support at work for the laptop with this latest operating system. We are a small office w/ no server (on Wifi connections to DSL). I set up my laptop
to auto-connect to one of the 2 wifi networks in the office. We are having a new DSL modem, wifi system installed and they have killed my auto-connected wifi network. Now I can't login b/c I have no network connection and there is no way (that I can see) to
get to the settings menu to select the other network PRE-LOGIN. HELP! If I will never be able to select another network BEFORE I log in, I basically have a $1,000 paper weight on my desk and I'm dead in the water.

Hi there!

This seems like the most random, specific fault with my computer (well, laptop), but it exists.

When I'm on the same (Wifi) network as a Mac (it's only happened with a Mac), my computer, running on Windows 7, restarts. It BSODs for about a quarter of a second before restarting.

I can't see that it is damaging my computer in any way, but it is not fun having to wait for it to reboot, and if it restarted during an update, it could damage the computer.

On restarting, the computer says something about Data Execution Prevention (or something along those lines)

Specifications of my laptop:
- It is a Sony VAIO NW20EF (in silver :P)
- It is running Windows 7

Further spec: Sony Vaio NW20EF/S specifications | Expert Reviews

All help will be greatly appreciated.

Recently I got a BSOD with the following error -


Since then Windows does not recognize the Wifi network adapter. It is not there in the Device Manager at all.

It does not seem to be a hardware problem because when I boot using Ubuntu, the Wifi works without any problem.

I purchased a new Windows 8, Inspiron 15 7000 series - 7537 last December. I had been using a router at a hotel for the time, and it worked correctly. When I arrived home, I had a Belkin router, and i experienced network issues in that i could not connect to the wifi. I could connect with Ethernet cable. The problem was fixed through customer support eventually, but I now have a new Comcast router, and i'm experiencing what appears to be the same or a similar issue. I can access the internet fine by wire. With wifi, it says i have access to the internet over the internet icon in the bottom right, but i cannot access webpages. I can use skype, and communicate through it.

First time user but I'm seen some very good answers and I'm hoping that someone can help me.

I just bought a new Windows 8 Pro laptop and I'm having problems with the wifi connection. I'll run the troubleshooter, and the troubleshooter will fix the problem but then the problem happens again repeatedly. The connection says that I'm connected to the wifi network, but there's no internet connection.

I do a lot of wifi hotspot testing over Teamviewer. When the hotspot doesn't work I lose the Teamviewer connection. Is there any way to make Windows connect to a specific network after about 60 seconds or so?

If I can choose the specific wifi network to make Windows to connect to after a set amount of time my life would be much easier!

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

So, there are two or more Wi-Fi SSIDs that you are authorized to connect to in the remote location?

Others in the forum might have a better way to do this, but I would use AutoIt in a ping loop - if the ping fails - then double check - if ping still fails, use netsh to create a connection. Or use the info here or here.

I have a Win 7 system. Everything was working, until a few days ago, and then the Ethernet connection stopped. The activity LEDs work, but the Ethernet will not connect. The Wifi works fine through the same router as the Ethernet is plugged into.

Here is what I did so far.Rebooted PC (full power cycle)
Rebooted router
MSCONFIG to disable all unknown services and apps
Replaced Ethernet cable
Tried a different port
Confirmed Ethernet driver is latest version
Deleted Ethernet driver anyway and reinstalled
Reset IP Stack
Set TCP/IPv4 to static IP and defined the DNS server
Confirmed the adapter's advanced settings were correct
Connected to a USB Ethernet adapter that I know works (and has worked before on this PC)

History: The computer is about 2 years old and the symptoms described below started either abruptly or gradually some 2-3 months ago.

Symptoms: The network access icon in the right of my task bar will show 4-5 bars of signal strength. I'll leave the computer for several hours and when I come back, it shows 0 bars with a red x over it. I click it, select troubleshoot and the Windows Network Diagnostics window pops up and says "Problems found"; A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken" - Detected; "Problem with wireless adapter or access point" - Fixed, upon which the icon goes back to 4 or 5 bars and I resume my network connectivity. This takes all of one minute or less.

I just bought a new Pavilion with Windows 10, but I would like to use my old Pavilion p61 40f PC (currently with Windows Vista, but soon to be upgraded to Windows 7) in another part of my house, using Wi-Fi.  I've been getting the message "the capability of your network adaptor does not match the requirements of this network."  From what I gather I need to download PROWin64.exe to have a network adaptor that is compatible with Vista.  My problem is that I can't download it if I don't already have an internet connection.  Can it be downloaded onto a flash drive, and if so, how? I have cable for both internet and TV and I have already tried unplugging the modem from my TV and connecting it using an ethernet cable to both a phone jack and the back of the computer, but still had no connection. If it's not obvious, I'm a tech novice, so an explanation with as much detail as possible would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for having me on your forum.

As the title of my post states, I'm having issues with my Windows 10 Wifi or lack thereof.

Let me clarify. I just got FIOS installed back in May 2016. Originally, it was supposed to be installed in March but then Verizon workers went on strike.

Anyway, before getting FIOS and the Quantum Modem/Router, I had DSL Linksy router. I attempted to access/utilize the wireless capabilities of the old DSL router and lo-and behold it worked. I was able to use the "Cast to" feature with the Samsung Smart TV. Everything was working great. Then I got the FIOS Quantum Modem/Router and now not only did the Wifi disappear from my Windows 10 "Settings" but the WLAN Network adapter is also missing from my "Device Manager". Basically I need to know if this is FIOS Modem/Router or something with my motherboard. I don't know if it's the motherboard but I'm not ruling the possibility out that it could be. I say this because there wasn't an issue with WLAN Adapter missing from the "Device Manager" before I got new so-called improved FIOS Quantum Modem/Router. Regardless of how things shake out I would appreciate any help that you can provide.


P.S. I might not get back to you quickly as sometimes when I get home from work the last thing I feel like doing to getting on the computer.

They work great, I basicly unplugged the lan cables *(disabled the nic card)* cuz I didnt need that any more and use the wifi as the default and only connection and share junk over that now. Well the ladys in the office tell me that peach tree will be very slow and unstable like it will just not work some times and they get error about the connection and stuff. The signal strenth is good and they are set to use infastruction and ad-hock too. *(I see no reason why there would be signal and speed issues)* BUT I want to put it back the way it was. Is there a way to make it so the lan card is used for just sharing files and printers and the wifi card for port 80 and the internet stuff?

I tried to plug both in at once but it always wants to use the LAN when opening up Internet Explorer... How do i assign jobs to each adaptor? *(after disabing the lan card it would use the wifi card)*
