Re: Home Networking Question

Can you access the control panel web page for the routers? Hi, I just updated my previous post and then noticed your question. The basement router is the DHCP server and it is off on the upstairs router. Those have both been running for a few years and my interactions with them have been minimal. I...

Re: Home Networking Question

Thanks for the quick reply and explanation. Is the basement router connected to the living room router WAN or LAN port? I just looked at that, it is on one of the four regular ports. Nothing is on the WAN/LAN (actually labelled "Internet) port. Is that something I should change? If so, I'll bet...

Re: Creating icons

Icons can come in various sizes. I have a folder in my Home directory for my icon collection. This makes it easy to change to an icon that appeals to me. Formats vary: jpg, png, ico, ICO, gif, svg. They are just images. Sizes vary: 32, 48, 64, 96, 128 and bigger. Have a closer look at the icons you...

Re: Wi-Fi not working on ThinkPad SL510

Whoopee! You fixed it!

Got a new menu and was able to enable wifi from there, and then I got my normal menu back, connected, all is working fine.

Can you tell me, in layman's terms, what that last command did?

Re: Debian or Ubuntu - Which version of wine is best for Mint Linux?

OK, that explains how I got the impression that Debian was involved I guess. I'm sure if I had studied the history of Mint I would have known more. I'm very happy with having changed from Windows to Linux about two years ago. I still can dual boot to windows (7 Home Premium now) but only use it a co...

Re: Debian or Ubuntu - Which version of wine is best for Mint Linux?

Thanks for the quick reply. And there is a strong logic in what you say for sure! I don't think I ever recall reading that before and, for some reason, had gotten a vague impression as I eased into becoming a linux user (back around V 16) that the Debian versions were the best choice. But now I know...
