I accidentally inserted a wifi dongle instead of a flash drive into the sub port of my wireless Bluetooth boombox, the Sony ZS-RS70BTB, will this break it? The dongle was reading NOT SUPPORTED.


No, because the voltage of all USBs are 5 volts. It says unsupported because your Boombox doesn't recognise a wifi dongle. I guess it is looking for music files. The wifi dongle will be fine as it won't recognise a Boombox as it is looking for a computer or television.

How can I add an external WiFi Donegal to a median life pad


WiFi dongles are developed for PC usage. A tablet, does not redirect internet info to or from a USB connector. For every USB device you need a driver and a program on a computer. As long as you don't have the programs or app for any dongle, no use to connect any dongle to any tablet.

I have sony wireless keyboard and mouse. how can it work with other computer


It is wireless probably because there is a small usb dongle plugged into your laptop or it is blue tooth/wifi. It will possibly work with other machines if you use the dongle or pair the blue tooth or set up the wifi.

I want to transfer photos from dongle to laptop


If you have a micro-memory card installed in the stick, when you plug in the usb stick in your laptop, windows (XP, Vista, 7 & 8) should automatically instal the device with a drive letter for the memory card coming up in 'My computer' along with installation of all the WIFI drivers. This may take several minutes.

How to go wireless on laptop


You need three things
1) An Internet service provider. Once you sign up and agree to pay the fee they will provide the internet service.
2) A wireless router. This is a unit that receives your internet service by through a connection to your telephone line. Then it transmits a radio signal (wireless signal) that your laptop can receive.
3) A Wifi card in your laptop or an external USB Wifi Dongle. This is a radio or wireless receiver that picks up the signal from your router.
The router is usually security protected with a keycode. All you need to do is set up your Wifi card or dongle with the same keycode and you will be able to receive the internet wirelessly.
To check to see whether your laptop has a Wifi card already installed, do the following:
Click Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Network Connections> and look for "Wireless Network Connection." If you have this, then your computer has a Wifi card installed and ready to go.

If you are connecting thru a ethernet cable then your ethernet is not working properly. While if you are connecting thru WiFi then the WiFi is not working properly. A cheaper option to get over this WIFi problem would be to use a WiFi dongle on the laptop rather then get the WIFi repaired which would be very expensive.

Not printing


If your printer is communicating sometimes with pc and not other times, and will print from some websites and not others it may be a setting, or you may be trying to queue up to many print jobs at once. Try clearing the print queue, turn it off and on again to reset. My printer occasionally has what i call a techmical spaz attack, and refuses to print large volumes. I do the steps above, then use a little program called mw snap, which takes a snap shot of any area of desktop or website and you only print just what you want, alternatively many sites now have printer friendly buttons which cuts out the excess info. As for when it will not print at all, it is a slow process of elimination. If it prints a test page fine, it obviously can print, so you know it is probably not going to be a printhead or cartridge issue. Is the printer attatched to a pc or by itself?
