Moving into the Wireless Age

I finally broke down and got a laptop. However, to make the laptop work....you must install this....

for the wireless printing. The adapter was almost as much as a new printer but I have a really nice all in one (printer, fax, scanner, copier) so I did not need to purchase another printer. It does only work for HP's but that is what I have!
Of course, to get them all to work, you must install the router. See where that red sticker is??? Yeah, hides all the Cat5 cable connections and it only took me 4 rounds of trying to get things working to FINALLY figure it out...must take the sticker off.
Oh, and figuring out the cables and what goes to what. You know what I figured out?? I have cables plugged in that go to nothing. Much cleaner now.
Off to get the network working on the laptop.

SUCCESS...being posted from the laptop! Off to get the printer to work.

Rock on girl! I got me one of those laptops too, although my fingers are missing my old DELL. They knew that keypad so well..

Congrats with the Laptop, looks really fine. Some day I may have one myself too, when I got my own room in the basement only for my stuff.
