when i first used this computer, the thing asked me "how do u wish to connect to the
since i had dial-up at the time, i chose dial-up. when i would connect, i would get an icon showing 2 computers that would blink blue by the clock.
...then one day i got a wireless adapter. the thing said to put in the cd BEFORE puting in the pci card. and i did.
then whenever i used to connect with the wireless network, i would get an icon of a computer with 3 green waves on the side. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v160/Spe...128/desktop.jpg
< look by the clock and see.
oh, and when i clicked on the icon, a thing came up. and when i clicked PROPERTIES, it gave me THIS: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v160/Spe...28/networks.gif
well now i just reformated and it asked me the 3 choices again:
this time i chose the LAN one. i dont know if that was correct. its not DIRECTLY connected to the cable modem. it comes from a router first.
well, i did some stuff, and now it looks like THIS: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v160/Spe...128/plzhelp.jpg
i dont have that icon with the 3 green waves anymore. now it looks just like it did when i used dial-up. with 2 computers icon at the bottom. it also shows a little black STICK-like icon which ive circled. ive never seen that before.
and now when i click on the computers icon and go to PROPERTIES, i dont get that list like i did before. i just get this: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v160/Spe...8/plzhelp22.jpg
i wish things were back to the way they were before. i wonder if this is bc i chose the wrong choice in the begining. maybe LAN was a bad choice.
