Windows 7: Username and password required for gadgets?

01 Nov 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit/Linux Mint 17-64-Cinnamon

It sound so familiar everywhere, don't worry...

Configurar aplicaciones y puertos only allows you to open ports for some applications/devices, e.g. eMule, uTorrent, XBox or Playstation and so on. And giving a name to the rule you just created. That's it.

Pity you can't see the Alpha screen, it would be useful:

W7 32 bit Home Premium

I never did really find a solution to the problem that was related to the W7 desktop gadgets, other than reading somewhere else that the gadgets had become corrupted or something and that Windows had dumped them. So I did too. Problem solved!
On a slightly unrelated issue, but maybe of interest to ElStellino if he/she is still around, I have today successfully accessed the router setting via in order to change the DNS settings, to allow use of a SmartDNS service so I can watch BBC iPlayer etc. down here in Andalucia, since the Big Switch-Off!

miro8! I forgot to reply here!
So, we moved to San Isidro in a new-ish house, there is not comunidad and for this reason no landline. Telefónica wouldn't install the line either, because if they do, the técnico pays. So we contacted, got their system installed, and we no longer have problems. As the line drops quite often though, it's possible that we'll get again a conventional broadband, I don't know whether with Movistar or some other provider.
For watching BBC related stuff I generally use expatshield, it's free, it's fast, it's easy to disconnect once not in use.
