Just installed xp for a friend on an old ibm netvista 6794 NZU pc. Went to ibm website but can not find the motherboard or chipset drivers to allow this pc to acess the internet. Can anyone help please. ...

It's a big pain when you dont have the right driver. but try this:

1. download and install the Windows Service Pack 3 (XP SP 3) in the computer and check if it works.

and how are you trying to connect to the internet? you might just want to put in an extra PCI network card, if you want to use the broadband or if you need the usb ports to work, try a PCI USB card instead.

either ways, make sure you have installed SP3 in that computer.

I re-installed windows. How do i connect to the internet?

Very possible you don't have the correct ethernet driver. Try looking up the driver off the manufacturer of you computers website. It will be listed as a "network driver". Good luck!

I have a caffee and there are 10 computers with a server , and shared through win xp share folder.... connected through a wired router... each system has a indudial log n through sify broad band I am stuck...

In addition to Ameerm advice be aware that some folders even though shared will not be available to other users as this is part of how XP Pro works.

The only way to properly access those would be via remote desktop which would allow you acess to any machine set up for that purpose.

XP Pro has remote desktop installed but you may need to enable it and add the remote user to the admin profiles on other machines also.

Usb upgrade

Let's see if I understand - you have added an additional card into the computer which adds USB v2 ports. Then I guess you are plugging a USB Wireless card into those ports.

Can you see the speed of the wireless connection? If you 't have an icon in the lower right hand corner for the card, hover over it with the mouse, or right click. Otherwise, go to Control Panel, Network Connection and look for the wireless card there.

Right clicking either one should show you the speed between your computer and the router.

Most wired connections will be 100 Mbps. Depending on the card and the router, wireless will be 10, 56, or 108 Mbps.

Wireless speed depends on many things, such as:
1) distance from the computer to the router
2) number of solid objects, such as walls, floors, or metal
3) possible interference from other wireless routers in the area

Do you think any of these are at work here? If you can reposition either the router or the computer, it may help.

Wireless is cool, but the best possible speeds will always come from a wired connection. I have my desktop computer wired, but my laptop wireless. When I go wireless, my speeds drop.

Tell me a bit about the equipment you're using, perhaps we can squeeze a bit more out of it.

Hope that helps!

Windows XP Freezing

Hi, Thank you for your reply. I answer to your questions:

1. No, I have not recently installed new RAM
2. I have just made my laptop freeze so I could check the event viewer to see if anything came up - butno error is reported in the system, application or security logs. (PS: to cause the freeze I opened up My Pictures, right clicked on and image, clicked open. The image opened in picture viewer. I closed picture view without any problems but once I closed the My Pics folder the computer froze.)
