    I have been struggling to log into my web hosts file manager recently. The problem is that when i log on i am told cookies are not enabled, so i can't log in.

    I have two PCs running win 2K, they have exactly the same settings. I can log in on my desktop no problem (dial up), but not my laptop (wireless broadband). It would obviously be better and quicker to upload files from my laptop.

    i can't network them either when the laptop is on the net as the wireless reciever uses the same slot as my network card.

    Could this be a problem with the wireless connection ? Or do i need to reinstall some thing ?

    Any ideas would be great cos its getting on my nut now... AJ

    As I understand this, you are saying that you have two computers, one a PC and the other a laptop, both running Windows 2000 and both with identical internet options settings.
    For the sake of testing to see if indeed this is related to a wireless issue, if you have a dial up modem PC card, you might want to remove the wireless nic and insert the modem to see if you can dial up and logon to the web host that way.

    Also, do you have a firewall enabled on your laptop that could be blocking the connection? Do you have the appropriate ports open to accept the connection with your web host?

    I'm just throwing out some thoughts here.

    This would be my first guess Angus. Also do you have the same version of IE of both PC's? Check the Privacy Settings in IE are the same. :idea:

    I wouldnt think so but it cant halm looking into it. My guess its more a browser problem, you could try another browser. I use myIE2 and this has helped 110% with browser related problems. :idea:

    Angus, maybe a dim question but which version of ie are you using? ie6 has built in cookie blocking by default, if there is a little stop sign next to the world icon at the bottom of your browser screen it is blocking cookies for that site. Double click the stop sign and you can manage the cookie blocking.

    I think it is a browser problem. I have done all of the things mentioned, but it does'nt help. I even downloaded the browser SimonV recomended, but that has'nt helped either.

    I am also having problems posting here. I was trying earlier with no luck and also for the last hour untill now when I was allowed to reply ?? Is this a problem with this site or is it to do with my old (98 ) wind up laptop. Has anyone invented one of those yet ? I bags it if not !

    Sorry, but I can beat you there, Angus - my Win98 laptop runs off a mouse/wheel PSU (still Pentium, tho') :roll:
