I didn't change anything since It was last working
I can ping the router
other than that I wish I knew what you just said????
I get so frustrated people either talk over my head or down to me
why isn't there any place for someone who isn't a geek but does know a
fair amount about these machines. I've complained about this for
years, only two manuals are written.
1 for dummies books
2 uber geek.
is it any wonder people put up with 2 hours on hold to be told it is
someeone else's fault.
I'll get off my soapbox but it is probably the main reason Linux
