I have a copy of Win 7 32 bit if you have the key. By copy I mean original DVD Somehow
I ended up with 3 32 bit and 3 64 bit. You do know their all on the same DVD. Meaning
I have a 32 bit DVD with all versions on it. When you install it a menu will come up and ask what version do you want Basic,Home premium professional,Ultimate. 32 and 64 bit however are on different DVD's I have to many old programs that won't run on 64 bit.

I'd rather stay with the x64, so I can have access to all my ram. I appreciate the offer though. Thank you.

You are right there Froggy. I have 4 GB and I can only access 3.25 GB with 32 Bit OS. However I don't care because with my RAM monitor I have never used more than 2.25 GB.

I remember my second mother board 10 MB of RAM and 10 MB cost $300.00. I remember my third computer had 20 MB of RAM $600.00 and I thought I was in heaven.

On Karmic and over use "sudo apt-get install linux-generic-pae linux-headers-generic-pae" the pae kernel allows 32 bit versions of linux to access all your ram.
Then you can use all the 32bit programs.

What I do in these cases if possible of course. Take a liveCD to a friend's house boot up do an apt-get update followed by apt-get install linux-generic-pae linux-headers-generic-pae then go into var/cache/apt/archives take the files put them on a USB key then you can go home and install them. That would fix your kernel slash memory problems not the web ones.

I understand that. But why update the kernel if at the end, I still can't get online. That's what I want to accomplish, is to get online.

The updated kernel, wouldn't contain the driver for the usb wifi adapter. This is an old driver I would need.

Froggy He was answering your question about not being able to access all of your memory
with a 32 Bit OS.


I have been reading your text for a week and still don't know what your talking about.

1 Do you have a laptop?
2 Does it have a built in WiFi Card
3 You can't find a Linux driver to make it work?

I can field those questions... What a Face


1 Do you have a laptop?
2 Does it have a built in WiFi Card
3 You can't find a Linux driver to make it work?

The machine in question is a desktop.

The wireless USB wifi adapter he had been using died.

I sent a few wireless adapters, both internal (PCI) and USB, but they are either not Linux-friendly or drivers are not available that work with his configuration.

The most likely candidate he has (right now) is a US Robotics Internal wireless PCI card, model: USR5416.

Close but no cigar. No

That will be a first. I have never seen a wireless adapter that didn't work out of the box. In the last 6 months most Linux OS's have included it. Let me ask you a question Bob3
Why Can't he use a LAN card. Doesn't he have DSL or any internet connection and he's going to use someone elses. He's getting pretty frustrated.

Dunno, but if it's anything like my place, the S.O. doesn't want wires strung down the hallway & she also doesn't want me drilling holes through the walls & floors. Rolling Eyes

Wait 'till she finds out what I did in the closet though... What a Face

Well, to explain my situation: we are using strictly wireless, am accessing it from my neighbor. She doesn't want holes in her wall, nor does my wife. I tried telling them that it wold be a "tiny" hole, but they won't go for it. So, yea, am stuck in a pickle here.

Yes, my wife and her made a deal, that we would pay half her net bill a month. I have no idea how their conversation came up. Maybe wife mentioned to her the our cable bill went up to $175 a month. I have no idea. All I know is my wife told me that she was dropping the net and phone service from cable and then told me that her and Lori made a deal and the rest is I got screwed over in the bargain, because now I can't run what I want on my system, because I have to deal with wireless dongles.

In my house I was able lift the floor heat register and poke the wire down next to the heat pipe and pulled it down and over to another room and up the same way and never poked a hole in the floor. I think you can get some flat cat5 wire. sunny

yeah sorry I was talking about the memory issue. I don't have any advice on the Desktop wireless I have one machine that uses a PCI wireless card but it is ancient and works with most Linux distros without issue. They don't make them anymore I did try finding a couple on ebay a couple of years ago but no one had any for sale. It is an old 10mb card not fast but good enough I only have a 3mb DSL connection.

If this one don't take care of ya, I'll have to loan you a "Blue Box" that's been expressly flashed with a tweaked version of Open WRT *just* for situations like yours.

I got the new adapter. All distros see the device, installs it and says I am connected. But when I launch firefox, it loses connection. The firefox says it is in offline mode.

So, I reset the connection, get connected, launch browser and connection lost again and browser goes into offline mode.
