Connecting Windows Xp Computer To Existing Wifi Connection


I have a relatively old windows xp tower computer. The pc itself is a dell dimension 3000 and i have a verizon wifi connection in my house. This computer, however, doesn't detect my connection, even though there is a card with two short plastic antennas in the back. It's in range, though.

Gateway Connection When Connecting On Wifi

Randomly appearing gateway connection when connecting on wifi. I've never had this happen before. I was connecting to wifi, which i'm one of the bad people i guess, using someone's internet freely, but when i went to connect, on the network connections screen, there was a new "part" to it, away from my connection that said "gateway connection". I've never seen this before, and i'm guessing it was in the way of my connection, because my computer would tell me i'm connected, but when i went to my browser, it wasn't connecting. Also, now my connection says that it's connected, shared, and fire-walled. I've known it's fire walled, and i can't seem to get the right exception for it, when i go the exceptions part but that doesn't seem to cause a hassle like the gateway thing is. I'm wondering why randomly it was saying that i'm sharing my connection when it hasn't said that before, and also why this random gateway connection is appearing.

Windows Vista Router Disconnects Wifi Connection

When using asus laptop it can connect wireless router (sky adsl) without issue, if the desktop which uses the same router disconnects it disconnects the wireless function from the laptop. Even rebooting both router and laptop fails to correct the problem. I suspect this is an ip address issue.

Repartition Existing Drives In Windows Server 2003

I am trying to find a tool to partition a drive in a w2003 server. I have found 2 so far but they want like $499 for them. I have a new dedicated server and they want to charge an arm and a leg to partition it if they do it b/c it was not originally on the initial work order. I just need to split the drive in to 2 drives. Typically this is very simple with like parttion magic or similar, but none of these appear to support w2003 server, just w2k, and xp. Does anyone know of a partitioning tool that is cost effective that will partition an existing drive on a w2003 server? I have remote/root access to these servers so if i can find a tool i can do this myself. Any ideas?

Network address problem connecting new laptop to existing wireless network. Using a netgear dg834g router as the access point for 2 different pc's, which are not networked with each other, but both connect fine to the wireless network. Just got a new inspiron 6000.

I know it should be giving me an ip of or something, i just can't figure out why it doesn't.

I know that you can change it by typing in the ip address to the web browser and then go to the security tab and change it. But whenever i type in my ip address it asks me for a username and password. People tell me that by default it is admin/admin. But that's not working.

Kodak Printer Wifi Connection With Mac

How do i get my kodak printer to establish a wi-fi connection with my mac? I have a kodak esp-7 printer with wi-fi connectivity and have installed the printer software on my macbook pro laptop using the installation cd provided. I have made numerous attempts to print various documents but have achieved nothing. I have gone into the printer menu through the screen options on it and input the settings for wi-fi capability, also inputting the settings required through the mac's 'system preferences' menu under 'print and fax', changing different options with each attempt at printing always telling me on the mac screen to check my printer connections because it cannot be found!

I have looked under 'network' and 'sharing' folders in system preferences also, to see what could be changed there but have rendered the same result. Why can't my mac and printer make a wi-fi connection? I've had success through use with a usb cable but moving to a recent change of address now sees my print functions differently and have achieved success for my partner on her (windows) laptop, which takes advantage of the wi-fi facility.
