Plain old XP did have such issues. It's amazing to see these without all the patches today but one in awhile you do come across machine with troubles and just "XP". Let's hope this is an oversight and these are all patched up to the latest.
Also, your posts about these netbooks look to be missing other details such as the history. I'm bumping into similar stories of netbooks from ebay and it's too rough on folk it seems. What is??? The netbook arrives without the drivers for the cards and the users are stuck.
I have two netbook computers:
Asus Eee Pc 1005HAB
Compaq EVO N600C
Both are running Windows XP, using MS IE. I have been unable to access the Internet with either.
Each possesses a wireless network card.
What settings must I enter to accomplish Internet access?
My previous netbook had no trouble with wireless access; no entries were required. I simply opened my web browser (IE) and signed on.
For some reason, these netbooks are different. What is missing? Could the wireless capabilities of both be defective? Have tried these at commercial 'hotspots' where others were accessing, and at gov't locations, to no avail.
Any input would be appreciated.
