New Wireless Set-up

by jimdc35 / November 27, 2004 2:12 AM PST

Had a wireless set-up that was working poorly. Have obtained new equipment. Must I delete the old wireless network before installing the new stuff? How? Or is it necessary to delete the old network? Many thanks.

Just noting that my new wireless worked poorly too. I found the FIRMWARE was out of date on the new hardware.

A common issue it seems.

Thanks for your prompt reply. Actually, I haven't tried installing my new router, etc. I was wondering if there is anything I should do about the old network before installing the new equipment. Any chance of conflict of some kind? Thanks.

I'm making such changes all the time from 802.11b to 802.11g routers. All that ever happens in the firmware issue and people who forget what they entered in the old router.

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?
