2200 and finally nailed it. what happened there?
took BT off totally, reinstalled, set up ether wire, wouldn't wear the wireless adaptor. Couldn't get the driver to load and windows nor bt could see it, so took that off again. tried to reload from the disk and it wouldn't have it, after several goes. realised vista might have been the problem, downloaded vista driver, couldn't find it, download it again, and again. finally sortd out where it was. got the vista driver on and hello Baby
. during this time computer doing automatic backups, scans and god knows what. downloaded my net protection again and finally I am all hunky dory. what a day. Tks for that Stewy, oh by the way, tried several executive reboots as well. just glad I got there in the end. Talk about going all round north end just to get to woodside.
