Can't use Internet printer etc, sysTem in Safe mode


When in safe mode almost all drivers (the instructions the computer uses to operate a device) are disabled. To fix this, restart your computer and load windows normally.

Big Brother And Ndisuio.sys, A new Intner phenomenon.txt


Ndisuio.sys, a very mysterious system file is present in Windows XP and is a driver for wireless things such as wi-fi and bluetooth. However, there have been many issues with this downloading immense amounts of data and perhaps causing activity that is "big brother"ish

The fact that hardly any information on this file downloading data is available by Microsoft makes things quite suspicious about it. It has even been noted that it looked as if it was transferring data to major companies like Comcast, Road Runner, Time Warner, BTC and Verizon.

The good news is, it turns out this file duplicates data that is sent/received, so wherever you go, it will also transfer the data to that file but if does not leave the computer/network so it's not spyware. So it's not as much of a big brother situation then it looks like. It simply performs internal communication tasks and stands for NDIS user I/O, hence, NDISUIO. NDISUIO is also used as a driver by many developers as it makes certain wireless network tasks easier such as implementing it for 802.11x connections. Some firewalls also use it as it can get the data in order to filter it.

But duplicating this data can hog resources for no reason, so disabling it is the best thing to do. The data rate of this file's received data is huge, so that indicates that the data transfer is not over the Internet, but locally. So it's just a duplicate of network activity but because it's local everything transfers faster but uses more resources then casual internet usage as there's more data involved at a given time span of 1 second, for example.

To disable this file, go to control panel, administration tools, services, Wireless Zero Configuration, double click and disable it. This file is probably required to run if you use any linksys wireless devices.

Good luck!

Activating COT2 wireless mouse


Your ACME COT2 wireless mouse must have come in two pieces, the USB connector the mouse itself.
Insert the USB connector of your wireless mouse to your Toshiba Satellite and press simultaneously the button in your USB connector and the button in the wireless mouse. This is done in order to pair the mouse to the USB connector.

My Toshiba Equium A100-02l won't connect to the wireless internet (wanadoo) that other laptops and computers in my house do. Ive tried plugging it straight in and that didn't work either. Has it got...


there are many areas you may want to check, first the networking capability of the computer, check if the wireless or the LAN card in the unit is active. you may try it on another network to make sure if the computer can or cannot connect to a network.

you may also check if your network adapters are installed, and if you are not the administrator of this computer, chances are the devices are disabled or inactive.

if you have other questions just lemme know

How do you turn on the wireless function on the esprimo v5535?


hai

According to the laptop's quick guide this is how you enable and disable your wireless:

Radio components: Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth/UMTS

The installation of a wireless LAN module not approved by Fujitsu
Siemens Computers GmbH voids the permits issued for this device
(see chapter "Technical data", Page 22).

Depending on the device variant, wireless LAN, Bluetooth and/or UMTS may be integrated in your notebook.

On delivery, WLAN components are switched on, Bluetooth components off.

Switching the radio components on and off
Start the WirelessSelector using the key combination Fn + F1 .
The WirelessSelector enables you to switch the radio components activated in
BIOS Setup on and off individually.

BUWlMuireTtlSeososthLAN
Press the key combination Fn + F1 to start the WirelessSelector.

The radio component indicator will be illuminated when one or more
radio components is switched on.

If you switch off the radio components, the Bluetooth module, UMTS and wireless LAN transmission unit (antenna) will also be switched off.

You can enable or disable the radio components individually.

BIOS Setup allows you to specify which radio components can be switched on
and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .

Only those components that have been activated in BIOS Setup can be switched on and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .
Conversely, components that are deactivated in BIOS setup cannot be controlled using the key combination.

You can also activate and deactivate the radio components individually in the BIOS Setup. You must have assigned the supervisor password in order for this function to be available.

Pay attention to the additional safety notes for devices with radio
components provided in the "Safety" manual.

Details on using Wireless LAN can be found in the online help system
included in the Wireless LAN software.

You can find more information on how to use Bluetooth on the CD you
received with your Bluetooth software.

Wireless switch


Make sure you have the latest drivers, router and NB.

Does it connect on reboot with the SSID off?

Does it work on repair?

if so, check your energy settings, some times they power down the wireless to save energy. There are also settings on how it behaves.
