Finally! No manual IP assigning anymore! I've finally managed to get around to that!
Shame on me ;-)

I was about to buy two Wi-Fi cards that support Windows 95 (I often experiment with old systems installing them onto desktop computers). I opened the site and found out they had got sold
:-((( They were the only ones I was able to find to work in Windows 95/98 (most new cards are made for Windows 7). I'd also like to get them to test them out in Linux. Gonna keep on waiting till they get on sale again.

My Wi-Fi network isn't stable again. I moved the computer to the kitchen and it didn't get any better. I can see my primary host, but it takes me so much time to log in! This must be a hardware problem; it has nothing to do with electromagnetic inteference, I believe. I need to take the card out and check it out after it's got installed into another PC. Damn, it's tiresome!
Well, at least I will not have to move the case around. Besides, I haven't really got around to.

Two days ago I bought a cheap Wi-Fi card and finally got rid of the old Ethernet cable. It took me some time to get the way it works, but now the network is in full working order. I have also encrypted the data stream (first I used the WEP protocol, but as it is not reliable enough, I switched the stuff over to WPA2 having modified the access point settings).
But I had to give up using the exclusive Wi-Fi card utility the card came with. It still said I had been using WEP instead of WPA2! Just a bug, but it disappointed me. The utility is similar to Powerstrip and helps me monitor a network connection... And it's 4 years since they made it, I wonder why they ain't updated it yet!
