  1. Thanks for the link. I may end up trying that. I guess I can always return it if it doesn't work. What is it about treadmills and causing interference on powerlines? I started searching for it and it seems like others have the same issues with treadmills among some other 'noisy' devices.
  2. We have about 5 ethernet powerline adapters in our house (2 yrs old). They all have been working fine. Today we installed a new treadmill. Whenever the treadmill is turned on, one of the computers that connects using the powerline adapter can no longer get online. Whenever the treadmill is turned off the internet works fine. So the treadmill is probably causing noise on the same power circuit the computer is on. I tried other power outlets but they are all close together so probably all same circuit and it did not help. Are there any devices available that can help reduce noise on the power circuit? Not sure if anything like that exists where I can plug in the treadmill into the filter device and then the filter device into the power outlet?

    Printer On A Network

    Is the printer shared on your desktop (the computer that it is directly connected to)? If yes, on the laptop did you add the networked printer and set it as default? Easiest way is to click on Start and in the search or run field type \\<NameofDesktopComputer> Once you connect to your desktop you should see the shared printer. Just double click on it to add it. Also remember that your desktop has to be turned on and not sleeping/hibernating when you try to print from another machine. Regarding the question about PCL 5 or 6 ... it should not matter if one computer has 5 and the other is 6. That is just the version of PCL (language for the printer) not the actual print driver. Both should work.
  6. I have seen that issue. Complete uninstall / reinstall of Firefox fixed the issue. Backup your favorites first. Completely uninstall Firefox. Download the latest version and reinstall. I am not sure what the issue is - when I was working on the problem I checked security settings, java script, installed latest flash, java, etc.. Nothing worked until I reinstalled Firefox.
  7. Also - are you manually downloading the .NET Framework? I believe it would be best to get everything through Windows Update along with all the other updates if you have not done that already. Windows update should automatically install .NET for you if its missing or outdated.

    Power Management Tab Is Missing

    Try this: 1. Click on Start 2. In the text box for 'Search program and files' type in: powercfg.cpl and hit the Enter key. That should open up the power management console.
  9. If you run ipconfig /all from the command line on your laptop when you are connected via WIFI and look at the wifi adapter properties are you getting assigned the same subnet and gateway as your domain controller? Another thing you can try is setting the primary DNS on the laptop to the IP address of your domain controller.
  10. Do you have anything else under Network Adapters in the device manager? 6TO4 Adapter is not the Network Card. According to Microsoft it can be ignored even though it has an exclamation mark next to it.
  11. Could you explain again what you are trying to do? Are you trying to join your laptop to the domain?
  12. I can't figure this problem out. We have a client running Windows XP Pro SP2. The computer is on a domain. They are using MS Outlook 2003 SP2 on an exchange server. User has various PST files added to Outlook. Periodically when user is working in Outlook she gets the following error - Outlook then restarts: Event Type: Error Event Source: Microsoft Office 11 Event Category: None Event ID: 1000 Date: date Time: time User: username Computer: computername Description: Faulting application outlook.exe, version 11.0.6353.0, stamp 408f2937, faulting module mspst32.dll, version 11.0.6357.0, stamp 40b65fc5, debug? 0, fault address 0x0001b745. I tried the suggestions in the following MS KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912805 I disabled PAE - that did not help. We tried repairing and re-installing office - that didn't help We even tried removing 2 GB of memory - users laptop had 4 GB total The issue happens randomly - with different PST files - and sometimes it happens even if user is not working with the PST files. Not sure what to try next

    I had the same issue on all 3 of my computers after the latest AVG 8 Free update. I had to completely uninstall AVG, reboot, reinstall and re-apply the updates. Now it is working fine.
