Re: Networking

There are two simple ways to resolve this. one way is to turn one of your computers into an internet gateway and share your internet connection with your other computer. another way is to use a device called a router to share your internet connection to both your computers. which of these would you like to try? before answering this know that using a router is much expensive than the first solution. however, in the first solution offered turning one of your computers into a gateway means it has to stay on for the other computer to be connected to the internet. go over these options and tell me which would you prefer. then i can walk you through with what to do and buy.

I have problems opening facebook on my pc

It sounds like your network is blocking the site. Do you have access to the router or other networking devices? If not, the site may have been deliberately blocked by your network supervisor. If this isn't the case then you might try clearing all your browser cookies and resetting all settings to the default settings. Uninstall all browsers and reinstall. A problem like this is very dificult to diagnose without being at the computer and knowing everything about your network. Good luck!

Hi, how to copy from one hard disk to another hard disk through networking thanks

Good day to you. Basically you cannot copy the entire hard disk over the network. First you have to put the files you want to copy into the "shared folder". After that, you can copy from any computer in the network that the folder is shared.

How do i build a local area network in windows xp?

On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

Networking TEC FS-3600 touch screen cash registers

if you only want the data and the program, you can download them on to a CD. so, every week you have to do that and transport them back and forth.
if you want to download the data with push of a button, then you need to speak to your cable or telephone company, they should able to set you for modem that is capable of create a Wide Area Network. (dependent on how much you want to spend.)
the is a choice of use the existing phone line, buy 2 modem connect them one one each end and connect the computer to that. the drawback is, if there is a call coming during the transmission, you will lost it all, if not corrupts the files, that will bring donw the machine and your business.
the last but not realay the last, is to get a web hosting site, if your 2 restaurant have internet access.
that will be the easiest and safest way to go.

the choice is yours.

if you have other questions or request, please post them in this thread, so we can followup.

Internet sharing

Hi, Could be done. On the Dell XP - 1. Activate your Internet Connection Sharing. Go to Control Panel, Click on Network Connections, right click on your Local Area Connection, Properties, Advanced tab, check Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection. In Home networking connection, choose "Local Area Connection", OK; 2. Back to General settings, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on Properties, tick Use the following IP address: IP address, Subnet mask, Default gateway, if you know ITT DNS use them otherwise tick "Obtain DNS server address automatically." You have to connect the DellXP with the DellVista using a crossover networking cable. On the Dell Vista- 1. In your Network Connections, right click on your Local Area Connection, Properties, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on Properties, tick Use the following IP address: IP address, Subnet mask, Default gateway, if you know ITT DNS use them otherwise tick "Obtain DNS server address automatically." The above method will also work with peer to peer wireless networking. It might also facilitate connection if you enable auto-detect proxy settings in your browser. There are other methods. This is also better explained at Microsoft support Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
