Even if his internal wifi quit working (unlikely), all it needed was a USB wifi adapter.

I was trying to figure out how they were going to make money off of you. There it was... $20. They will turn around and sell the old unit as refurbished and make a killing on that because it will be pure profit. Man, what a scam!

It's those crappy notebooks you bought Chuck. No joke, quality is not one of their strong points. I may have to do a remote connection with you and take a look at it. Glad you're back on though. I told you it was a simple fix.

That's gonna be your first mistake! Take that crappy antivirus off there! Go to download.com and do a search for Avast Home Edition (NOT professional edition). Download and install that. It is free. If you want to pay for a better protection, download and install Kaspersky Antivirus (NOT their Internet Security). McAfee is a joke and is worthless.

Chuck....

I'm just gonna make a few comments here...
Not trying to offend....


1 Your kids are too young for their own laptops

2 They should still be using DS's and PSP's for games

3 If you bought them laptops, they should be taught to use them for school and extensive computor skills...(more than your current computor skills)

4 Games on laptops at a young age fosters disrespect for the tool aspect of pc's

5 Tell your kids to respect their laptops and you'll kick their asses if they make changes or mess up stuff they should never touch

6 Tell your kids to never touch your Main PC or router, or you'll kick their asses.

7 You should have just spent the extra bucks for Persarios

That being said.....your in for a serious buttload of kids constantly damaging your equipment, and you constantly dishing out big coin on your present path.
I've seen it hundreds of times with families and kids that get too loose a leash on family pc equipment.
This is a harsh likely reality you must prepare to face.

Jenni and Exotic will back me up on this pov.

Just trying to help here.

... kids fancy downloading all the latest trojan/worm *eye candy* from the Russians and Chineese ... so if the parents allow 'em on their CPU's ... they should at least keep their important stuff externally ...
