You have to visit each machine to set the password.
Since BIOS is DOS. prior to Windows establish network connection.
F2 to enter setup. tab to security and set administrator password.
don't foreget the password or change it in mid stream. you will not be able to access it w/o password.

my 2 cents... I wouldn't do it.

I NEED DRIVER SOFTWARE FOR A DELL INSPIRION E1705 LAPTOP FOR MY HUAWEI METRO PCS WIRELESS


Hi there,
If your Huawei Metro PCS Wireless came with the computer, you can find it under the support section of Dell's website:

Hope this helps!

Dell desktop, had xp, somehow said lost server, now all i can get on desktop is millenium. anyway to use my downloaded cd to reinstall? how?


Hi there, to reinstall XP on your computer you have to make a cd with the downloaded file and then you have to insert it in the cd-rom and reboot the computer and then be sure that the cd rom has the first priority in the boot priority. You can find the boot priority in the bios. For getting in the bios, normally in the start of the computer, they write which button to press for getting the bios.
When you have done that, you just follow the instruction on the screen (New intall, format drive etc)

Have a nice New Year

Internet connection sharing


To share an internet connection, you need to have two network connections, one for the internet connection, and another for your network.

If your DSL has a USB connection, plug it into one of your computers and then then go through the network setup wizard, from there it will walk you through sharing an internet connection.  

If all the computers have wireless, you can set up an adhoc network, and share the connection that way.

Honestly, the easiest method would be to go out and buy a router.
