and not as if bloggin here, but I feel an explanation could yield for me maybe an idea or something, to maybe augment my cinfidence, or somethin ,who knows perhaps even a solution if my descript which is likely to sound more like a shuttle collision than an account of events leading up to a failure of service...unless the scenery sounds familiar to anyone, who doe have my sympathy and consolation, since youaint alone forsureman here I am..... I added Norton Security from the setup disk included with our router by linksys (BEFSR41 ) We felt the router might enable simultaneous usage by multiple pc's and also an x-box live console. boy what a ride. We let the wizard setup as we we plugged in, each worked fine but not at the same time, DOES ANYONE KNOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO SIMULTANEUOSLY STAY ONLINE? see I get "kicked off" by the xbox, and when he stops ,I am able, once again to "surf". Connectivity is one of those "don't miss it till its gone" thangs,eh? But (boy this is thick) I have Norton Security keeping me out of my pc's access to the net, now, since I mis-handled the install, somehow. I won't even try to ask for a hand , but if I find that I can ask an intelligible question I will ask it only posting updates periodically in the mean time I willget this thanks to ro folks for who y'are!
