Thankyou very much for your "Advice".
I see no need for your sarcasm and i am perfectly aware that "Google" is a
VERY good resource for stuff.
I merely expressed my continued interest into my problem in the news groups,
so people were not answering the same question.
In hindsight this was wrong and if i have offended your weekend newsgroup
reading, i apoligise profusely.
I am also writing this in the comfort of my back garden, what a lovely day
it is too, so not as sad and "techie"fied as you made out - thank god for
wireless routers ;-).
Thanks again for your response
Apoligies for any offence
