WYSE S30 RESOLUTION SETTING TO HIGH


Try resetting with Control + g rather than just g

Turn on the Winterm and immediately hold control + g (at the same time)

The display should flicker for a bit then release the control + g

This will reset the device to factory defaults, (you'll lose your connection settings, network settings, etc) -- but you'll be able to use it again. :)

Need to network a wireless pc with a cable pc via router


man u have a router!!!!!!!!!

no need to share the connection
just configure ur router,
put ur broadband connection log-in information in the router
so the router will act as a gateway
and the router will start the dhcp server, so both of ur pc's will have ip's from the same subnet
when the router connects to the internet
the 2 pc's will do the same,

Use a proxy service to enter the sites. Use one of the following links & enter your destination URL.

2. Use Google to load the cached (usually filter free) version of a website or proxy.
example: - goto google.com, and type in demonproxy or demonproxy.com - goto the first link by clicking on cached (not the real URL link). - type in the website you’re trying to goto in the URL bar and enjoy.
example - use http://home.myspace.com (instead of http://www.myspace.com). Other prefixes to try for myspace.com: browseusers. search. invite. mail. blog. invite. favorites. forum. groups. events. viewmorepics. music. classifieds. signup. chat. vids.
4. Install Circumventor - please read instructions carefully. 5. Block-Unblock your home network.
