Re: Windows 7 Unidentified Network No Internet Access

In manually setting network parameters there's always the risk of typo's. Try using DHCP first. I bet if you set one of the other networking stuff you used manually you are having the same issue. I'm using the same DNS settings as on my laptop (2008 Toshiba Satellite) and my laptop connects fine, s...

Re: Windows 7 Unidentified Network No Internet Access

Did you 'upgrade' from winXP to win7 or did you do a clean install of win 7? Have you cleared the CMOS and set the BIOS up again on the motherboard? (Make sure PXE booting is disabled).. Also clear the static IP from the router and set it back up again - routers have a habit of dishing out the assi...

Re: Windows 7 Pro or ULTIMATE!!! eBay listings

I love open source, so Linux is ok... I just don't like the base UNIX architecture its based on ;_; but it lacks much, for instance well running GNU debugger (MinGW) via a file type association to load VLC Media player though the GDB while it loads any one avi/mp4/flv/etc file... the gdb window is n...

Re: Windows 7 Pro or ULTIMATE!!! eBay listings

I find MS$ windows barely tolerable these days... I would look past windows 7 and go windows 8 (ignore all whinging about that, it works well).. Or wait and get windows 10 which looks good... However, depending on what programs you use, try out Linux - free and these days simple to use... While win...
