Yes there is. Those people at gateway know nothing. There just a bunch of fat idiots off the street. I cant help you unless I see whats wrong with it in person.

You have answered the question yourself, you have been lucky enough to own a mac. Stick with it its superior to anything out there.
Mac users don’t usually change they are a breed apart. Some of the best work is done on mac’s

Thomas asks…

Is it the wireless card or the router?

I have a Toshiba Satellite R25-S3503 Tablet PC with a built in Intel PRO/Wireless 3945abg Network Card. The notebook runs Windows XP Professional with SP2. I also have a D-Link 524 Router. (Ver. D1)

My desktop connects perfectly to the internet and so does my laptop when using the ethernet cable. The problem is when I try to go wireless.

I have restarted the router, upgraded and downgraded the firmware, resetted the router. I have run ipconfig on my laptop and it says there is an internal error, that a device in the system is not functioning. (Yes, the wireless button is on). I tried toggling it off and on to no avail. I checked device manager, the event log. Nothing.

The only time my wireless comes on is when I first start the computer. It’s on for at most 2 hours and then it shuts off. In the Network Connections, it doesn’t say NOT CONNECTED. It says DISABLED. So I tried to enable it and it doesn’t work. I called DLINK and Toshiba. I rebooted and recovered. What do I do?
In order to save battery life, the computer can shut off the Network Card. I disabled that function. I am sitting about 1.5 feet from the router and still no service. I allowed my uncle (Computer Technician) to provide remote assistance using MSN. Once he was done, he told me to restart the computer. But that’s the thing. THE CONNECTION ALWAYS COMES UP WHEN I RESTART. The same happened when I called D-Link and Toshiba. They did whatever and told me to restart. Of course it came up, but for about 45 minutes.

I called Toshiba for the third time today and they finally suggested I go to a Toshiba Certified Repair Company. The thing is, I am leaving for college on Wednesday so I can’t exactly afford time to allow them to keep and repair my laptop. Is there anything I am not doing? Is it the router? Is the adapter? Would they just replace the computer or parts?

steve answers:

Make sure first of all there the same protocall, IE:802.11 ect ect. Make sure the drivers are set up properly, Is the device enable and working in Device manager? Try checking the settings in the router, is dynamic IP setting set to auto? Make sure you have the router and card set up to authenticate with the same info. You can also try goin to a wirless hotspot like an internet cafe, and trying it there, If it works then that would exclude the PC itself and leave only the router. Wirless settings in routers are very annoying, and everything has to be set up perfectly…so just anyone cant come down yur block and log onto your network. If you have had all this help with the laptop, i would try looking into the router.

John asks…

what would be the cheapest solution for taking notes that can be stored digitally in the computer ?

I am struggling with keeping my notes organized .. i take notes while i am on the phone ( i scribble stuff on post-it) .. while i am in the meeting ( i use regular paper notebook) … while i am brainstorming with myself in the train or while sitting alone …

i wanted to know if there was a tool on which i can scribble and it stores my hand written notes . i did come across wacom graphire solution but didnt know if i could write and store hand-written notes . what would be good solution? i am not looking for high end tablet pc / i am not looking PDA ..
Only simple functionality of storing hand-written notes – or be able to scribble on the device(hand-written recognition would be great)

steve answers:

There’s some pretty snazzy hand written recognition software out there. A lot of the tablet PC’s and even PDAs have it on them.

The key is to learn to write in a way the computer recognizes easily. So if you already have a scanner and a PC, you just need a piece of software. And you could scan your notes and file them in a structured folder as text documents.
