    Exchange / Outlook Contacts Problems

    The only address book that has anything in it is the Global one. My internal contacts are there. The other options there are all empty.

    Exchange / Outlook Contacts Problems

    Hey guys, I'm hoping that someone can help me out with a problem we are having at work. We just installed Exchange 03 (upgraded form an old generic POP3 server) and everything, so far, is running very smoothly. We are, though, having problems with contacts in Outlook. We have 'internal'...

    Internet Browsers Stopped Working

    First, check and make sure that something hasn't changed your proxy settings in FF and IE. Some crap program did that to one of my machines last year...

    802.11g Connectivity issues

    FWIW, I've seen this issue several times with WPA and WPA2. More often than not, a driver update fixed the problem. For some reason it's happening quite a bit on new equipment. At work, we just purchased 2 new laptops that had the same problem...so who knows. Anywho...check the driver. One...

    Wireless Network Not Working

    Ah...too much coffee today I guess. Anyways, yeah you have to have an antenna (internal or otherwise). Know too that radios CAN become damaged over time if powered on without an antenna (but such is not always the case). Anyways...glad you got it to work!

    Wireless Network Not Working

    Okay, make sure that the card is activated...on a LOT of laptops, you can do this by Fn+F2.

    Wireless Network Not Working

    First, make sure that MAC filtering is OFF and security/encryption is OFF (we'll deal with that later) on the router. Next, make sure that (if your laptop has one) the wireless card hardware switch is set to "on" or "enabled." Also, did you get the latest driver for your wireless card?

    Lack of good wireless routers

    I have to vote against Linksys. For three years, I worked for a consultant firm that installed wireless (all sizes, enterprise and private) and can say that we had more problems and complaints with Linksys overall than any others (then again, some worked fine...). For a private wireless...

    Problems typing text; jumps to mouse cursor

    FWIW, I've seen that very thing with a few Toshiba laptops...a touchpad driver update fixed it in each case (nothing to do with brushing the surface).

    IT qualifications: where to start?

    That's very interesting...I've never heard that before. Anyways, around here, you cant get a job as a "lowly" desktop tech without a BS and a cert (usually A+). HR depts here (as a general rule) do not even consider candidates who do not have both. I can say that my certs were by no means a...

    IT qualifications: where to start?

    Agree...there is no replacement for experience. I have found that in my immediate arze, however, that one must have experience, college AND certs...as the marketplace here is very competitive. I often wonder why anyone has anything bad to say about certs...is there any harm in getting them...
