Our stake computer has a wireless adapter. There is no Ethernet port available for the printer.

Printer sharing

Now that LDSAccess allows us to connect our laptops to the meetinghouse network, is it possible to set the administrative computer to share its printer? We had that working before Sophos, but I fear the Sophos firewall blocks peer connections, and there is no way for us to open those ports. When I n...

If there is reason to believe the RAM is actually bad, you can test the RAM on many/most PCs by running a program called memtest86. It's best to run memtest86 directly from the BIOS. While I imagine there are other places to get it, one place is to download a Mandriva Linux installation ISO, find a...

FM

Brazilian Dell Support can't help me because the machines are purchased in Brazil with a worldwide contract with Dell in USA and I can't know wjat is the corporate name the Church used t...

Thrashing

Did the Church specify a particularly retarded CPU/OS mix or is there something uniquely demanding about the MLS-Afaria system? It's tempting to complain to the STS but when I briefly mentioned bad RAM he was oddly non-commital. You don't have bad RAM. You just don't have enough RAM. Look at the Co...

Air flow

They are packed tight inside to make them small, but this leaves less room for air flow, so placement ventilation is important. It is true that there is very little air space inside the computer, but I think that is actually a good thing. The CPU fan and the power supply fan work together to pull a...

Dual mode

I have configured all admin computers in my stake to auto-detect an Internet connection, and then fail-over to a dial-up connection if necessary. The units in the Metro area can dial a local access number, while the units in the remote rural areas dial an 800 number. Local access numbers change all ...

Two out of three

The first two WAPs I reconfigured via the GSD were quick and easy. The first was on a cablemodem, and the second was on a wireless ISP. The third one I did today, and it is on a DSL line. The GSD could not see the WAP by poking around in the PIX. I had to hold in the Mode button on the WAP to totall...

Usff

As far as I can tell, Desktop 5.9 is installed onto these new USFF computers, and the Restore DVD in the box is also Desktop 5.9. As far as ventilation goes, isn't it weird that the computer is enclosed in a plastic box that has a cover on the BACK of the computer to cover up all the wires? Sure, th...

Crashed?

I am always interested when someone says a computer crashed, because I can't tell exactly what happened. Is the hard drive unreadable, or can it be inserted into another computer to rescue the data files? If the hard drive is physically OK, is the file system corrupted? If the file system is OK, is ...
