I'm in China for a year and have a provided apartment which has a computer, but my laptop wont connect. The provided computer is from the stoneage but can connect to the pppoe connection that I have. It is an ASDL connection thru China Telecom and requires that I connect to the local lan then sign into the boradband connection. I can connect to LAN on the laptop but when connecting to the broad conec I get error 691 "Access was denied because the username and or password is invalid on this domain"
So.... I have gone through all settings on my laptops network connections and made them the exact same as the ones on the provided comp. Still no go.
It is pain because I need to use programs on the laptop and when webpublishing I have to usb drive or use my digital cameras memory stick to transfer very slow. Ohhh... and I also forgot to bring the USB cable for my external hardrive, the provided comp doesnt have firewire.
ANy help would be greatly appreciated otherwise I have to get some idiot from China Telecom to come over and spend umpteen hours trying to make it work. They couldn't figure the problem with the cable when they installed it. I tried to tell them that when the capped the rj the wires were in the wrong order and they wouldnt listen, so four hours later they cut the cable and redid it and it worked! GRRRRRRRR!
Thanks in advance
