    Hello,
    Wondered if anyone could help me. My computer is an Advent and is running Vista 32 bit I have played with her a little in the last upgrading the RAM and it works great.
    Recently it has got very very slow taking up to an hour to boot so I stripped it down to find the inside choc a block with fluff. Using a small soft brush And hoover I cleaned her and the worst area was the power unit. Starting her up she booted in just over two minutes which is amazing and works through Word etc fantastic.
    However I have spent half a day trying to get her to connect to the router/internet and it just shows "identifying" when trying to connect. I have uninstalled the network adaptor and reinstalled put in the auto connects as I have googled but no good. I noticed then that she was calling it a public network! And not sure if it should be private? I cannot find a way of changing it as with it "identifying" all of the time I never get to see the customise icon to change it?
    I have it connected to the router via an ethernet cable which I have checked out and wondered whether one of these usb to router dongles might be my answer?

    Any help would be appreciated... Happy New Year, Colin.
