I think you mean:-
If there isn't any resistance measured then the brown wire is NOT connected to earth.

In theory there should also be a low resistance been ground and neutral, but this is Spain!

If you look up where 192.192.1.45 is you will find its allocated to a Taiwan location! Are you sure that is what they gave you as its your IP address? What is the IP address after you rebooted?

Re: HELP need pound sign urgently

If it is a laptop without the side numeric keypad then you have to turn on the numeric keypad. Using the normal numbers does not work.

Re: Enrique and other PC wizzards. Spec me a machine please.

Before you part with your hard earned cash I would make sure that your internet connection is, fast enough / band-width is sufficient / throughput etc is high enough, for online gaming. I am not a "gamer" but I am sure somebody else can give you the minimum requirements.

Re: Convert Dynamic disk back to a Logical disk

Hi,

for an example. Microdoze have an "offical" solution it seems, assuming you are not Mac.

Re: How do I get Channel TELECINCO

Hi,

Do a search for Telecinco as some information is available.

One site said they have Digital Terestrial but there is something here as well:-

VGA to HDMI is not simple, as you say it requires analogue to digital conversion. This means it is not a straightforward cable but requires a box of electronics. This of course is not cheap.
