Please do not use text-speak abbreviations on our forums. It is very annoying to read, and most people wont respond favourably (or at all) to posts written using it.

Thanks.

I am using a 4 port hub for my lan (it also does my adsl). A hub made setting up a new work easy (*mental black spots over the MS hassels*)

If you are connecting one computer to another a crossover cable is great, but if u want to connect more computers with cross overs then u need alot more network ports.


Gaming, some games use different networking protocols for games, u may have 2 install these too.

sorry not much help but good luck with linking up ya hostel.


And as for the TXT speak, OMG NZ had freedom of expression, even in school exams u r aloud to use txt speak, if the meaning is clear.
