Annoying wireless problem

by aegumilar / May 16, 2006 6:04 AM PDT

I got a new Belkin pre-n wireless card a while back. It worked just fine at home and everywhere else I used it. I tried to use it on my college network and i couldnt seem to get it to work. I have tried using windows zero wireless controller and also the software that came with the wireless card. Both pick up the signal but won't connect. I have resorted to using my older belkin wireless card which works fine at college. I have asked various people and they have given be various bits of advice about changing settings (I.P, DHCP, etc) and what-not but nothing seems to work. All the settings seem to be correct but for some reason i just cant connect. The system administrator is baffled. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced something similar whilst trying to connect in certain places or if anyone has any advice that i havent heard yet?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
