Thanks for the idea, but I had already tried that. The thing that is driving me bonkers is the windows machine sees nothing on the network, Nor do my other machines see it. On the network I currently have two audreys (have 3 more in closet), one at the router and the other through a powerline adapter at the other end of the house. Additionally I have a SUSE 9.3 box (no samba turned on yet) and a windows media center box, and 2 wireless laptops. I haven't tried looking with the laptops, they are our "work" machines and are used to VPN to email. Come to think of it I don't think any of the boxes can see each other. That's what happens when you get a bit of time here and there to play. It is probably long past time to off load files to optical discs, format and start over.
On a different topic...
How did you guys do the wireless mod? I thought about taking a linux driver for the Prism chipset and recompiling for QNX, but it looked like more than my limited hacking skills could tackle what with the added fun of USB. I realize that there are some potential intellectual property issues in asking, and I respect that if you can't answer. I was looking more for the flowchart version if that helps.
