I am Hoping that Someone will KNOW what a Webtv is because .. this question revolves around the horrid little thing!
I have a Vista Home premium pc (64 bit) but .. my wife has What Is Known as a webtv or as a MSN (microsoft) internet browser.
The browser Is Not a pc.
It can surf the web, (Most sites) and can send and receive email.
It can't upload or download.
When we got this "Web Browser", we wanted to hook it into our DSL.
Since my pc was already connected to a wireless router, we purchased a USB wireless adapter for the wifes Horrid Little Machine.
(both adapter and router are Netgear)
Well, wouldn't you know it .. After many, many trips to the store, for many, many different adapters .. No wireless usb adapter would work even though Microsoft listed the ones that are Supposed to!
The Only way for my pc and the wifes Horrid Little ($80.00) Machine to use dsl was to hook the wireless router to the Horrid Little Machine and use the usb adapter on my $1700.00 pc! LOL
Believe me .. There is No other way to do this.
Here's the question: I want to try OpenDNS on my pc.
Can I change my pc's dns even though I access the internet through a wireless adapter, or .. is my dns dependent on the router that is hooked up to the Horrid Little Machine?
As I have already said .. I Really Hope that Someone .. (on a PC forum no less) will actually know what the Hell I am talking about! 8)
In truth, The Horrid Little Machine suits the little lady just fine and she'd Kill me if she knew what I was saying about it! LOL
