  1. Well mine has closed and now have a computer store in its place where I can order all of my necessities from the web.... Joking aside I now have to drive 15 miles to get to the nearest tackle shop that doesn't have half the tackle I would consider buying. The maggots, if I could ever bring myself to use them, I can get from the secretary of the club I belong to- delivered.


    You can get advice from the web but how personable is that? :lol: We're a bunch of antisocialites! :rolleyes:


    For my two cents I'd agree with Newt on location.

  2. yesssss ,nothing in the list worked so i removed the two <_< wireless hubs and windows popped up and said it had found a connection and away it went,cheers chaps.

    back on ethernet though its safer ,i needed the wireless bit for when my bro brings his xbox ;)

    i had also told the hub to download the latest software last night which may have helped


    whats the best security version to use to stop others peeking (not that there seem to be any others but "strangers" visit the village occasionally :o ) and just because i'm not using wireless there seems to be no way of shutting it off


    WPA/PSK will do well for what you want. Turn it on and set your own key. You should be able to turn off the broadcast of the SSID. That way you have to know the SSID AND the key in order to connect to it. In other words it's still there you just can't see it by looking for an available network. Glad you sorted it. :)

  3. the home hubs seen with a good to very good signal but when i try to connect to it it just sits there "acquiring network address" but nothing more ,any suggestions


    This is your network interface card trying to get an ip address. Make sure your home hub has DHCP enabled. It will act as a DHCP server. You should be able to specify the IP range.



    in the box it says i'm connected to the hub but its "acquiring network address" then a greyed out "automatic" then "acquiring network address" again in a continual loop. :wacko:


    Sometimes you can be connected and have an IP address (this results in limited or no connectivity) BUT you will have to specify the network key. It should prompt for that. AND you did say you disabled security.


    i'v replugged in the ethernet (as you can see) and it works perfectly as you see


    Try to disable this ethernet port before you use the wireless. Go to network connections and right click the one you want...


    1) network?

    2)i have a password ,wireless key and a ssid ,is it one of those? i can enter any but it just says acquiring network address for blooming ever.


    You should only need your password to log into the router GUI. You should see the SSID (available wireless networks) in order to select it as the network you want to connect to. The wireless key should be entered if the network you are trying to connect to has security enabled.


    windows cannot "repair" it :lol: it it says it cannot renew the ip address.


    Also make sure that your router has NAT enabled. Your router will use the IP address from your ISP and assign IP addresses as needed of it's own. This is back to the DHCP enabled part.. :P


    as all this merryment is going on the little icon on the taskbar goes between the wireless icon with a red cross and the icon with a small moving dot under it (showing its trying to connect) in sequence with the main bt wireless connection dooda :rolleyes:


    The red cross means you do not have a connection :lol: The little roving dot means your NIC is DHCP enabled and is trying to 'pull an IP address'


    i give up going into the router software it only sees the ethernet connection not the wireless one :angry:


    The router will only see the wireless one if it has a working connection. :rolleyes:


    Rocket science! :huh::lol:


    Have a look here.. http://www.anglersnet.co.uk/forums/Wireles...ion-t82422.html


    Sometimes a simple reboot of the router will cleanse it of some problems but it may 'erase' the cause making it difficult to troubleshoot.


    What are the specs for your wireless pc? Which 802.11 standard is it?


    Nomadpaul- Yep that's pretty much canned.. But good info either way. Sifting through it though... :yucky:

  4. A young girl on a year's training course in South Africa recently

    received a 'Dear John' letter from her boyfriend back home. It read as




    Dear Mary, I can no longer continue our relationship. The distance

    between us is just too great. I must admit that I have cheated on you

    twice, since you've been gone, and it's not fair to either of us. I'm

    sorry. Please return the picture of me that I sent to you.

    Love, John


    Mary, with hurt feelings, asked her colleagues for any snapshots they

    could spare of their boyfriends, brothers, ex-boyfriends, uncles,

    cousins etc. In addition to the picture of John, Mary included all the

    other pictures of the pretty lads she had collected from her buddies.


    There were 57 photos in that envelope along with this note:




    Dear John,


    I'm so sorry, but I can't quite remember who the f**k you are. Please

    take your picture from the pile, and send the rest back to me.


    Take Care, Mary

  5. Hi Lid,

    Do you have many things plugged into a power strip or just the PC? Have you opened the box to see what if any damage has been done inside? Since you have been gone, something may have gotten in and started chewing wires. I'd start there. One may have gone to ground.


    I just recently had a 13A extension melt because I overloaded it. You couldn't tell by looking at it, but it tripped the main every time.

  6. Incredibly, no-one - including the family - noticed the error and they got on the charter plane without realising where it was going.


    Sounds like multiple issues to me. For one- why did they not go to the correct gate. Thick? Definitely... And she's a teacher?


    At what point do you take responsibility for your travel? I think they should take the blame. It was their holiday.

  7. watching fish being caught is dull,whether they're gudgeon or salmon.


    Jon, You've caught my wifes sentiments exactly although it sounds more like:


    "GUMP, How can you watch that stupid $h!t?!" :lol:


    Mark, I look forward to these new shows regardless of how they are presented. i.e. IP or televised.

  8. Had a small jack last week of about 10 inches. Was out until dusk on the yak trolling every lure I own. I can say I saw and heard some huge splashes. I imagine they are there and feeding just not on anything artificial or dead. Didn't start seeing the bigger fish move until right before dark..

  9. Something that puzzles me is that if your car is parked where it shouldn't be parked, why do authorities clamp you so that you can't move your car? Seems a bit strange to me. :huh:


    I don't have the answer to that and yet it is strange.. In his case he parked in an area that required a parking pass (forgetting to display) and they booted him prior to giving him a warning, AND knowing full well that he was a resident. That will be $140.00 please.


    I would have contested too.

  10. What part of the island? We took a trip out to Gozo for the day on a catamaran.. By the end I was desperate for shade. :boat: I bet you could do great things with rapala rattletraps or any type that rattle. I used them on Ascension for a type of jack crevalle. I don't know what licenses you may need though.

  11. It mostly happens on hills when trying to accelerate, I just can't really tell if the wheels are actually spinning or if something was wrong relating to the gearbox. I do sometimes miss my AWD Impreza though. The T4 is hands down faster. The Impreza wasn't a WRX.

  12. Thanks Dave and Phil! I'll have to look around a bit I think. I was invited to a game fair in Knaresborough last year from a vendor in Harrogate. I was unable to go but I was told there would be loads of rods to try and some instruction. I also think there is some instruction by the hour at Stonebridge. (Which by the way has changed hands once again.. Soon to be flyfishing for carp)


    FWIW it was an amazing sight watching this person cast. He was in no way clumsy. :)

  13. Thanks Steve. I don't want to be forking out loads of cash and find I didn't need to. I have read that I can remedy this by upgrading motor mounts and bushings. But thankfully not required!



    Don't do it then.


    You suggest a lack of common sense of which I can assure you I have too much of. Cheers Colin... I'll keep that in mind.
