    It happens all the time, I tryed a PCI wifi card and then with a USB wifi adapter.

    I tryed what you recommended but after a couple of web pages it just stops browsing, "Waiting for..."

    I still can do WLAN operations, and watch streaming movies stored on the other PC connected to the WLAN.

    So the problem must be with the internet and the M50. My other PC, laptop and smatphone connect to the wifi internet without troubles.

My name is nathaniel, Computer Expert,

Check if the modem is not damaged. I would recommend to replace the wifi card, but before that go to (start) ( all programs ) (accessories) ( command and prompt), Right click it, then run as administrator,

then on the black screen type , ip renew, then , ip release, then , ip renew all and again, ip renew.

then type chkdsk/f and reboot the computer,

check if this helps and let me know :)

How do I access internet..desktop trough laptop

You need to share them into a homegroup together.
Or are you using a crossover cable? U cant just use notmal cat5 cables to connect a computer to a computer.
Although, why on earth are you trying to access the internet through another computer?
The whole idea sounds disasterous.
Maybe get a wifi card for desktop if its a distance issue.

Where can I get audio driver for MT-M 8189 for windows 7

They dont actually make a driver above XP. However ive managed to install Win7 on dozens of computers by forcing the XP driver to work, you have to choose the option "have disk" then direct it to wherever your driver is located. Make sure you do a system restore b4 you start.....cheers from Scott any queries get back to me

Windows 2k Pro crash with HP J5780 printer and M50 Thinkcenter

Assuming you have SP 3 on 2000, it's possible the USB ports are bad.  Try a different USB device ie mouse, flash drive etc to verify whether the USB port is bad.  If this is the case, you can either purchase a USB 2.0 card and install it on your PC or run without USB ports.
