Tried to help out my Dad with this one, but, as per usual, I'm stumped.
Dad's laptop (Toshiba running Vista) is perfectly happy connected to my parents' wireless home network (or any other one he connects to. Dad travels a lot.).
However, some hotels Dad stays at only have ethernet...
Apologies to Liam and any others who might have looked into this. My n00bness knows no bounds.
I figured it out. :o
After an hour or so mucking about with different things, I found (quite by accident) an option to share internet connection.
I tried it, restarted both machines, and...
The only problem on the device manager is with the sound (which I'm not worried about atm).
Bridging? As I said, I'm network dumb, so I'm not 100% sure what that means.
Ideally, I'd like the old Dell to be on the network and be able to access the internet.
I had thought the Dell was on...

Greetings to all the technogurus. Skietax has returned with another problem that will test your knowledge to it's limits!
....ok, not really. :D
So, here's the situation:
I have successfully set up a wireless network (using a Linksys router. Thank goodness for easy to use software...
Yep, that's what I did.
Initially, I wasn't doing anything wrong. I was creating the papersize properly. The problem was the printer. While trying to change the default papersize, it would only display those sizes it could use. Because my paper size was too small, it didn't appear on...
What I wanted to do was print labels. Unfortunately, my Epson doesn't accept a paper size as short as I needed. The program I'm printing from allows me to define how many labels per sheet I print on, so I told it to do four labels per sheet. I then created a paper size that was 4x higher than...
Actually, I discovered what I was doing wrong.
I was creating a paper size smaller than what the printer could use. The custom size I made was there, it just wouldn't show up in the options for the Epson.
I managed to find a way to get around the problem, however I will look up that...
Back again. *sighs*
I've got a tough one for you this time. Well, maybe.
I need to create a custom paper size for an Epson LQ-590 dotmatrix printer. Currently running Windows XP Pro, and got the latest printer driver from Epson today.
I've gone into the "Printers and Fax" window...
Ok, so I waited longer than a week (*cough* month!! *cough*), and everything is working as it's supposed to.
Thanks again to stlcards06. Dunno why, but it never occurred to me to update the motherboard drivers.
Well, I may have solved the problem. I installed (what I think are) the latest drivers from Nvidia for the motherboard. No problems while running last night. I managed to get Windows updated, Norton installed and updated, and the email up and running. I even got to play a game for 20...
OK. Checked everything out last night. No oozing, bulging, leaking on any of the caps. All the fans are going. I pulled and reset the RAM, and disconnected and reconnected all the cables for the harddrives.
Although something interesting did happen. I thought I'd try and do...
There wasn't when the problem started, but I added one this past weekend in order to back up all the files we wanted to keep. Both drives are Seagate SATA drives. The old one is 80GB and the new one is 320GB.
