View Full Version : Router queries

02-03-2008, 03:29 PM
I have a Linksys wired router, that when I got it a few months ago, I installed on this pc, so I could get the other computers to connect to the interent as well.

About a month ago, I re-installed Windows on this pc (The router install stuff if any would have been formatted with the drive)

Since then everyone has been able to access the net, share files etc. but I noticed that when logging into online games, I would go into the GBR realms etc.

Today, when installing a trial copy of Office 2007 while I wait for my Enterprise copy to arrive, I found that it would keep pointing me towards the UK site. I couldn't change it to the NZ site.

Any ideas on how to fix this up?

Check in your
Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options

In the Regional Options tab, make sure it's set at
"English [New Zealand]" and not
"English [United Kingdom]" or something

Lovely. That's fixed it thanks.

I must admit, it's a bit disturbing that the router carries on happily without me :-)
