Now we get technical!
ME _ HP Pavillion 1619, 1G RAM, AMD 64 Processor, GeForce 512mb graphics, D-Link Router and ADSL, ehternet cabled into back of my computer. (Using LAN port 4) Running Microsoft media centre (XP)
Other Computer on the network _ Old 'Tiny' computer, Microsoft ME, 256 Ram, Two hard drives, no ethernet port but using a USB wireless receiver. Drivers properly installed from package CD, set-up is now configured and is reliable when its running (if you get it to connect that is!)
It is now connected to the internet, obtaining automatic IP address via LAN as is my computer, automatically obtaining internet settings via LAN.
When the USB is connected, loading webpages is not instant, the webpage will lock up for a few seconds and then load the webpage, even when not using internet but conencted, everything done, locks up for a few seconds and then performs the requested actions. Why is this... too many things runnnung? Hardware fault?
There is no wireless card in the 'Tiny' computer, but i do have a Belkin, ethernet card i can put in and then wire the router on that PC and I have the USB. Will this help at all? As my computer is more capable...?
Looked at drivers on www.driverguide.com
and found the drivers for the G122 which is the model of my USB wirless receiver. Will download and install that see if it makes a difference.
I understand that run cmd (command) as I have done all this before as im doing A level ICT!
