MY BLACKBERRY NETWORK IS NOT WORKING WHAT CAN I DO


Since you mention trying to perform a software upgrade, I assume you are referring to a Wi-Fi network, not the cellular network (in which case your phone will be useless for its main functionality: making/receiving calls).

Here are my suggestions to connect to a wireless network to do the software upgrade:
1. if your home network is not wireless, get a wireless modem/router from your Internet provider.
2. go to a friend/relative's house which has a wireless home network.
3. find an OPEN wireless network in a public place (bookstore, coffee shop, etc.)

Hope this helps.

How can I get my Windows PC to see my printer(s) on my Mac OS X network?


I am sure this question has arisen more than once, as to just how to locate and use the network printer in your Mac OS X network,so you can print from your Windows PC. After all, the Macs you have in your network print with no problem, why not the PC?

But nothing seems to work, that you have tried. So what to do?

Well, the answer comes with a simple yet very effective technology implemented by Apple Inc., just to address this issue.

It is a zero configuration networking protocol known as Bonjour.

Bonjour formerly known as Rendevous, was implemented from the Zeroconf (Zero-configuration) service delivery protocol and first introduced by Apple in its software with the release of the Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar system.

In lay terms, what "Zero Configuration Networking" means to you, is that you do not have to be computer geek or guru, to simply install or configure this software, because it was designed for the most part to automatically discover computers, devices, and services on local IP networks.

The "local IP network" being described here, is your own network, whether it is in your home, home office or anywhere you have a network setup.

What makes Bonjour so efficient, is that it can work with PCs in order to work with devices connected to Macs. To use it, all you need to do is install the software to your PC. Macs with Mac OS X versions from 10.2 to 10.6, of course, already have Bonjour as a built in feature.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So how do I use Bonjour to discover printers on my Windows PC(s)?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It really is a simple as 1 -2-3.


1.) Download Bonjour - You can simply search for it by name through
Google or your favorite web search engine, or
click the link below to install in on your PC.
Download and Install Bonjour for Windows


2.) Install Bonjour - Simple enough, install it once the download is
complete. In the example below, I use my Epson
NX415 printer as a network printer on a Mac OS X
network, that needs to be discovered by a Toshiba
Laptop with Windows Vista Sp2 also a part of that
network.

3.) Launch Bonjour to discover the printer(s) in your network -


a.) Introduction Screen:

You will be very satisfied when you see how little
effort you have to put into discovering the network
printer on your PC with the Bonjour Printer Wizard.

**Note: Keep in mind, the network printer must be properly
connected, turned on and functional, otherwise Bonjour
will not discover your networked printer with your PC.**

b.) Printer Discovered:

Printer in Mac OS X network, if working and turned
on... Should be discovered by Bonjour right away..

c.) Printer Driver not needed:

A really nice feature with Bonjour:
You really don't need to have the print driver software for the
discovered printer. Bonjour will identify the printer, its
location on the Mac OS X network and will use a
Generic/Postscript identity due to a print driver for the
PC not being needed.

d.) Summary of discovered network printer:

Final screen for the Bonjour Printer Wizard. Just click
the Finish button and that is all it should take.

Done!
Now open any document run a test print..
on and get to printing with the newly discovered
Mac OS X network printer on your PC.

Now, that you know, no more guessing, on how to find
that elusive Mac OS X network printer for your PC.

Happy Printing!

Regards,

Mactechtrainer

Unable to connect EEEPC 701 to BT HOME HUB 2


sometimes the best thing to do is start over.

reset any hubs, routers, switchers, etc.
then (just fro now) remove any firewalls,
or software that may get in the way.
You want to start with a bare minimum configuration and build from there.

eeepc works well with windows networks, the ethernet connection should just work, without additional software.

does eepc connect to other networks?
can other laptops connect to your network?
check all settings: ip address, dhcp or static, passwords, etc.

Try a "wired" ethernet connection, then try the wireless connection. if all else fails, use F9 (or DVD disk to reset/reload the system. i.e. start over.

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer


Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.

Is the computer recognizing the connection to the network?  Does the home network use DHCP?  How do you have the network setup?  Does this connection work with a different computer?  Try pinging any other computer on the network, and try pinging a website.
