Hi Ron,

 

They'll make it as difficult to get a free version as possible, hoping
you'll give up looking and cough up.

 

Personally I'd go for Microsoft Security Essentials, which is
genuinely free and has proven its worth more times than I care to
mention.  Or as I put it, if Microsoft screw this up, it will be the
end of them.

 

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ and download from
there.

 

George.

Thanks Larry, and George, Marie and all who helped me to get on line
with my netbook.  Another problem please.  I am trying to download AVG
free but it is asking me for money, is it not free  any more?  Or
should I try another one?  I am using AVAST on another computer.  It
also looks as though Jaws 10 is not suitable for netbooks, is that
right?

 

All help gratefully received.

 

Cheers

 

Ron

Hello Ron

 

Ok taking in to account you have no "switch" to turn yoru Wi-Fi on and
off, there is a key which does the same.

 

On your netbook at the bottom left there is a key marked Fn - this is
a key that toggles what other keys do.

 

Now look along the F1-F12 keys and there are symbols on them which are
in a different colour, the colour will be the same colour as the Fn
characters are.

 

One of them will have a wireless icon (beacon with rings round it.

 

Press the Fn key plus the key that is marked Wi-Fi and this should
toggle wireless on and off.

Thanks George I will try that.   Would there be something in settings
to check?

 

Cheers

Hi Ron,

 

It's just possible your wireless router is set to "Hidden". or to not
broadcast it's presence.

 

Ask your wife to try right clicking on the crossed icon, and see what
options you get.

 

George.

Hello George, well as I was explaining to Marie, there is no switch as
such to switch Wi-Fi on but there is a little thing at the bottom of
the screen which you have to click.  My wife tells me there is a cross
on the top of it.  Both she and Narrator are telling me that there is
no network available.  There is because all other devices are working
through it.  All leads are connected and my IPod is picking up the
network so at the moment it is a mystery.

 

Thanks for helping.

 

Cheers

 

Ron

Hi Ron,

 

Marie has pretty well answered your question.  Is it turned on?

 

George.

Did I miss how you are trying to connect the netbook?  Is it wired to
the router, or are you trying wirelessly?

 

 

George.

Hello Folks, I have two computers connected with leads and a laptop
connected with a wireless card.  Using a Netgear modem and router.  I
am trying to connect my new netbook to the home network but it is
saying there is no network set up.  My wife tells me there is a cross
over where the network icon is on the screen.  Any ideas anyone?  All
other computers are okay.

 

A new modem and router combined is being delivered from Virgin on
Tuesday.

 

Cheers

 

Ron
