Disable your firewall.

i like you way of thinking

If that's the solution, what is the problem? Is it: "I don't have enough viruses, trojans and spyware on my computer. What should I do?"

Felix a FW will not prevent you getting viruses or spyware on your computer. Trojans can also access a computer that has a firewall through a legitimate download. However [especially with SP2] lots of network issues can be solved by disabling any firewalls or allowing access.

Sorry, spikeychris. I assume that this is part of a thread that doesn't appear here. I'm sure that it was a valid answer to a problem. No offence meant.

Felix - no worries. No, there was no thread, I was just banging the board.

Is banging the board a technical term for when you hit a number of sticky keys at once ?

  FelixTCat 14:14 15 Feb 2005

It refers to the state of frustration reached when you bang your forehead repeatedly on the keyboard.

Usually related to networks, particularly wireless.

Worrying - I'm about to buy a second PC, probably from Dell, and set up a Wireless network. I'm surfing around the forums to try and pick up some ideas before buying cards & a router. Watch out for my "help.....I've just bought ...... and the ....won't work" post in here

Don't worry too much - you don't see many threads titled "I just set up wireless networking straight out of the box and it worked"
