theog.. hi.. I un-plugged it this afternoon.. then took the ethernet cable..plugged it into my Acer Laptop Windows 7 .. with the router .. all is working great..
I do see a new connection (un-identified network ) on my Home Network..just below my Home Network with a bench...( Public ).. to be used when I'm away from home.. it has no name..I wanted to save my battery.. I have the laptop on Wi Fi ..when away from home.
It's actually my sbcglobal .. dsl connection to the XP tower... that's going to the tech shop tomorrow.. to get re-installed with Windows XP..I was ready to do that today.. however I didn't feel secure doing it.. so thought better.. to get it back like it was..
Thank you for your concern and help.:)
