    Hi, I just upgraded a Gateway Essential 450 desktop, (Pentium III) with 384mb of RAM from Windows98 SE to Windows XP Pro. I have a cable modem and a Linksys wireless router connected. I have no problems connecting to the internet with my laptop wirelessly, but now the desktop is unable to connect. When using Outlook Express to try and get mail, the host server can not be found as I get a socket error: 11004, error number 0x800CCC0D. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  • 4. XP Product Key on CD
    I have a copy of XP Home that I had installed and activated over a year ago. However, I uninstalled it due to hardware problems. Now, I am trying to re-install it, but cannot find the product key, and the company that I bought it from is no longer in business. All of the advice I've found assumes that I have XP installed in order to find the key. Is it possible to find the key on the CD?

Before I embark on a "system recovery" on my daughter's computer I would 
like to ask some questions about broadband/LAN.	System is WinXP HE.
a.  Where are the settings of a broadband connection located?
b.  If I do a system recovery will copying this setting to the newly 
recovered OS work?

Any help will be appreciated.  TIA

A. Control Panel --> Network Connections and the appropriate device for said 
network connection.
B. Depends on what you mean by System Recovery.  Please be more specific.

Usually - broadband connections are pretty generic - setup for DHCP and 
such - all defaults - meaning "Plug-n-go".. No configuration necessary. 
Only if this machine had a static IP, specific DNS entries or had to use a 
spcific client to logon to the broadband network would you need to worry 
about anything.

The pc is a Sony VAIO and will be using the OEM system recovery disks. 
It has no option of recovering the just the OS but only to wipe the 
system clean and reformat.  I'm new to broadband and I thought it was 
going to be a simple task like just copying the current settings to a 
recovered hard drive.

I just checked out the control panel/network connections and I think I 
can take it from there.

Thanx for the help, Shenan.

1.Best Encoder Settings for Streaming Broadband Video

I host a whole lot of streaming, broadband videos and 
would like to get the straight scoop on bit rates.

I have two constants which should make this easiser.
  1.  All videos will be viewed in Windows Media 9 or 
  2.  All videos will be viewing via Broadband (DSL/Cable 
or hihger)

I don't know why this question is not answered directly 
anywhere that I could find.  I just want to know, using 
the encoder, what I should choose.  

I use the wizard and choose "streaming" and then get the 
bitrate choice.  What should I choose?  I want the videos 
to be high-quality.  Should I select all of the 
bitrates?  Will this allow "optimal" viewing for all 
broadband speeds?  Will it make the source video file 
extremely large?  

Currently, I just choose a bitrate of 340k.  What am I 
gaining/losing by doing this?

Please help.  Thanks in advance,

2.Setting up my Broadband IP protocol to use Windows Live Mail

In Internet Explorer I want to sent a link by email.  The popup tells me I 
have to use Windows Live Mail since I have MSN as my provider.  The service

the Windows Live Mail?


3.Changing my setting from broadband

Hello, I changed my setting to broadband because I was recieving a message 
about the server failing, I thought it would help but I have made the 
problems worse now.
I need to switch my settings from Broadband, back to LAN. Does anyone know 
how to do this? When I click on 'accounts' and select 'connections' my 
windows mail freezes up and I have to close it. I cannot even get back to 
where I originally changed it. Can anyone help me? 

4.Setting up a broadband connection in ie6 and oe

I am having absolutely no luck in getting my IE or OE to 
recognize my internet connection. I have recently 
switched from dial up to broadband and the programs keep 
trying to dial up to connect but the computer is already 
online. How can I get these programs to recognize that I 
am already connected and get them to work properly? I 
have deleted all of my old dialup connections that were 
on my computer, also but no luck. I have tried creating a 
new connection for the broadband but it also tries to 
dial up the connection after that. I have tried 
everything that I know to do. Any suggestions would be 
greatly appreciated!! :)
