Odd BT Home Highway Connectivity question

    Here's the setup - my wife connects to BT Click (in order to get on to her
    company VPN) using the BT-supplied USB software and cable .(Compaq laptop).
    I connect to the same box, (different dialup - NDO) via a Terminal Adapter
    and Cat 5 cable. (Toshiba laptop). Both running Windows XP SP1.

    This is what appears to happen - wife dials up and all connectivity is OK. I
    switch my laptop on, (not connected) and her connectivity appears to slow
    down. If I am dialled up, she has great difficulty in going on line. if SHE
    is already dialled up, I have no difficulty in going on line or with

    Any one else experienced this? Could it be a problem with the BT Home
    Highway box, or the Compaq setup? (I'm not overly impressed with the Compaq
    and the way it has been set up by her IT dept anyway)

    I got a friend that had a dial-up wireless network installation problem
    when one particular machine was on the network all the other machines
    slowed down significantly. It turned out that the machine had a worm that
    was sucking up the bandwidth on the network.

    Wouldn't have thought it's likely to be this - both machines are well
    protected with ZoneAlarm and AV programs......

    But of course, the only friend you have is that Prozac bottle. You should
    choke a couple down for me and go stand in a corner for the rest of the

    And do it *Clippie* the *clown* before you find that *technical* news
    clip. <g>

    In the meantime, I got to get ready for work. Hey, they have some summer
    intern jobs for computers at the job. I'll set you up with one so that
    you can wipe down the monitors and vacuum out the keyboards, since that's
    the only skills you may have. <g>

    I'll explain it to you again. Ragging is my game not yours. :)

    Well, the guy's wife works at this charity place he did the work for
    free. He even went out and brought the router for them that he eat the
    cost, after they told him they didn't want the set up. He spent like 10
    hours trying to figure out what was wrong, his first attempt to set
    something up besides his home network.

    Typical *clueless* users and he is that way a little bit too.

  9. Maybe you should post in your native language. Alternatively, before you
    post, run your English-like text through babelfish using half a dozen
    different languages. At least it'll make more sense than that pillocking
    trip up there.

  11. Confused by the ever so subtle difference between verbs and transitive
    verbs, are you, jawless, flailing clotpole?

    trip up
    v 1: detect a blunder or misstep; [syn: catch]
    2: cause to stumble; [syn: trip]
    3: make an error; [syn: stumble, slip up]

    Thanks and bye, you reactionary, self-serving flag-waver.

    This is evidence that you are *demented* you're TechNews, FYI, me, someone
    else. It is psycho-path *Gone Wild*. The 4x4 padded cell is ready for you.

    And while you're in the shower with the rest of the insane, tell them
    about how you became a worthless MVP and MVC news clipping reporter. <g>

  15. Duane Arnold, after spending 3 minutes figuring out which end of the pen to use,
    Is that supposed to mean something in English or are you just copying what's
    printed in Korean on your prescription bottle?

    Not only is it weak, it's worthless. She is better than you -- stay out of

  17. Duane Arnold, after spending 3 minutes figuring out which end of the pen to use,
    Hmmm...more Korean prescriptions. Just what is it that doctor is prescribing
    to you anyway? Whatever it is, seems to keep you with some kind of moronic grin
    on your face.
