No wires! [May. 15th, 2004|12:26 pm]
Peter Sheil
Got the network here working at last! It was a hardware problem - just got a replacement unit and it worked first time ... just like these things are meant to. I'm on the lookout for the flock (squadron?) of flying pigs which are due to land here soon :)

peace

Re: Look, Ma! No wires!

Did I mention my NetGear wireless access point couldn't be configured with Netscape 7 or recent Mozillas? That had me scratching my head for ages. I quick, but very reluctant, go with IE and it was running like a charm.

Re: Look, Ma! No wires!

I'm an IE lad myself and both NetGear and Belkin setup via HTML worked fine first time.

The problem I had was in the wireless bit of the Belkin - the ADSL and router / switch bit worked fine, doled out IP addresses and all. It was nice to just power it up and have it all there :) Previously I was getting to the point where I though I was being an idiot with something obvious ... I even went to read the manual of the box so that shows how desperate I was getting ;)

Peace

That was my MIL's network. I hed to give the radio section of the network a name ... I picked "babble" ... will I go to hell for that? ;) I did tell her the name as well.
