A job well done...

Did my good deed for the day and went 'round to sea_cucumber to setup the ADSL wireless router. Annoyingly it wasn't as easy as it should have been. Windoze was being a pile of poo on her laptop, although I think it was partially the problem with the WNIC. Confusingly whatever channel I picked, it would recognise it as being the same channel number, but on a different frequency. Took me ages to discover that this was a redherring and that it was correct after all. What seemed to be the problem was it having a client name set. *boggles*

So now the wireless part of the router works fine. Couldn't get DHCP working on her laptop, but given my laptop managed to get an IP for both the NIC and WNIC I figure it's Windoze being wank again too.

That just leaves the ADSL part which should be fairly simple once the configuration details are known. Assuming BT aren't being wankers and making it so that only their kit works. *passes the baton on to the next geek invasion*
