A friend has asked me to clean up and update her pc which she connects to orange via a dongle. My system connects using ethernet. Is it possible to leave her settings intact but use the ethernet connection on her motherboard with my system. The dongle is not plugged in. If this is possible could you tell me what has to be done to stop the pc trying to connect via the non existent dongle and to use the ethernet. Thanks in advance.
ame there is no reference in control panel network connections for the orange dongle. Fruit Bat /\0/\I have the ethernet cable connected and it shows connected and firewalled [windows xp one]. Occasionally it appears to connect but very slowly and then up comes unable to find server. From another pc on my network I can see the pc in network places. I need to get it online in order to reactivate it following a windows xp home repair the only way I could get the pc to work.
it is Mobile Broadband, and I can now connect via the ethernet cable but after one or two pages I get the cannot connect to server and the only way to get back on line is to reboot. I think this pc is heading for a factory restore. It is a Packard Bell - I do dislike this make.
