Hello people, this is my equipment...
A dektop PC with XP Pro.
A laptop with XP Home edition.
Linksys WRK54G router.
Linksys WPC54G PCMCIA network adapter.
I have managed to get internet on the desktop PC via a network cable running from the PC to a hub on the router, and another cable from the router to the modem.
Now I am trying to get a wireless internet connection from the laptop using the PCMCIA adapter. This is where I have had problems literally all day. From the laptop I can see the 'linksys' wireless network and have the option to connect to it, but the connection never gets established.
I have tried resetting the router disabling all security, restarting the WZC service, updating the driver and so on. Nothing seems to work.
I must be missing something as I've never done this before and everything I know I have learnt today. Can anybody help?
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?
