Try booting one unit at a time. This will allow your IP configuration to setup each unit at a time.
Next, if that does not work with the logon problem, adjust your network IP to a one IP address

You can check these settings by typing ipconfig at a command prompt.
You first unit should read 192.168.0.1 and the other unit must be set to a different number.

Webkinz world


Hi Chloe. Sorry to tell you that the latest version of flash player will not work on your G4. You may be able to find a version of Flash on their support pages that is newer than the one you currently have but this is still not likely to solve your problem. The latest version of Flash requires a newer Intel chip MacBook rather than the old G4 chip iBook. You might get lucky (as I have done) and be able to buy a working MacBook on eBay. This will be able to run 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and you should be able to download the latest Flash. The MacBooks replaced the iBooks when Apple switched to using Intel chips - like Windows PCs. Best wishes.

Cannot install it correctly to windows vista laptop


Haha. Not laughing at you.

If you try to play games that old on a new OS like Vista, it won't go. You would have to try to run the game in compatability mode. Which means when you ry to install the game, right click and propeties and check the tabs out.

I tried playing a game from the 90's too, on my computer with Windows Xp, and it did the same thing. I tried lots of stuff, but then I just didn't have time to mess around with it so I left it.

What I'm trying to say is, that Vista is too ahead for the game software. And vise versa. The game code is too old for Vista. Vista would have to downgrade to play the game and that could bring some problems. The computer prosseser would have to work harder and that could cause the game to lag and even the whole computer to lag. LAAAAAG real bad.

Anyways, keep trying and hope this helps.

When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes


To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

Hope this helps.

Netgear wireless router WGT 624v4 not accessing some websites


if the router was the problem, then no site would be accessible from either of the problem pc's.

unless the webkinz site is being blocked because it contains active scripts. check the configuration page for the router (usually 192.168.1.1) and switch off any active firewall / security applications running on the router.

try loading or running another copy of Vista on the hard drive, this will overwrite the former but don't format the drive. this will copy ur work into a folder called "window.old", when you are through, go to this folder and transfer ownership of the folse,subfolder into the new administrator. this will not open the files until you click on the properties of every files, goto security, change the owenership to the new administartor, then allows ful acess to the file. NOTE, Installing new Vista program automatically overwrite old adminstartor, but not the files in it. Good luck
