    [#0005ff]Can you post the model of this Thomson? What you're seeing could surely only happen if it was USB powered by the main PC. Does the laptop not even "see" the availability of a connection?[/#000ff]
  2. [#0005ff]Waking up gradually over here. :D Another possibility is you could be sharing the PC's connection rather than having your own route to the router. Run the Network Setup Wizard in Control Panel and make sure you tick "This computer connects through a residential gateway".[/#000ff]
