Well have just had a fun few minutes re-soldering the USB connector to the little circuit board on the Belkin wireless gizmo that connects my PC to the router in the other room. No phone line in back.
The darned dogs had barged past and broken them. For the last week i have going through the whole set up as I thought it was the router playing up but finally got another PC set up with a direct connection tot eh router and it worked fine.......................... so this morning carefully pried the Belking thingy apart and with a lupe spotted two broken connections to the USB plug on the board. Luckily whilst moving my old filing cabinet this last week I noticed my little tube of electronic solder and during the garage clear out found my old narrow tipped electric soldering iron so am now up an running again.
Thought I would have to buy another Wireless gizmo and boy they ain't cheap plus it means a 25 mile trip into town to hopefully get one. This is the second computer bit they have managed to break first was my card reader.
As I say I am going off dogs .
