Ï duly got another IT technician, on a recommendation, to sort out my home network. Unfortunately, their efforts seem to have been somewhat counter-productive, in that while some problems have been resolved or at least clarified (eg the old LaserJet is stuffed, that's why I couldn't print through it, not because of any network issue), other problems have now reared their heads!
If I have a TelstraClear broadband connection, and a D-Link wired & wireless router providing my home wireless network, as previously described, do I actually have to have my Tablet PC connected to it via the docking station (ie a wired connection to the router)?
In fact, does a computer of any sort have to be connected to the router for the wireless network to function? I'm sure that before to the techie's visit I could disconnect the Tablet from the docking station, and still connect with it to the internet, ie it was then connecting wirelessly. I cannot do this now, which is a PITA when I want to use it elsewhere in the house.
All suggestions gratefully received, especially for a techie who can do home visits in the Wellington area, who actually does know what they are doing.
