My husband absolutely hated Win 7 which was on the computer we purchased for him about a year ago. So I had my old computer in the garage and put in a fresh XP install. It boots up fine, and we have transferred most of his files to this computer.
The only problem is when we disconnected the other computer, we lost the drivers and settings for getting on the internet through his D-Link adapter which ran though my computer which is the main computer on our Uverse account. It is connected to the internet by a Uverse modem like a DSL connection.
When I call Uverse, they say this is a job for the paid technicians which is ridiculous. They want to charge $49 to fix something that would take 5 min at most to walk me through the settings. Or I could sign up for a $14 per month service with contract and early cancellation fee of $120.
I am a disabled Senior lady on Soc. Sec. and cannot afford this kind of nasty manipulation on the part of Uverse. I am really upset that they have taken to ripping people off this way.
Is there someone out there in Bleeping Computerland that can help this old decrepit lady?
Thank you so much
