Hi sry guys for the confusion, let me try to clear this up. I have this computer that i am on right now, everything works fine, it is the main computer in the household. the linksys router is hooked to this computer. (Computer 2 as you refered to it as) The other computer (computer 1) is the one that has a fresh installation of windows and no drivers. Computer 1 i am trying to run off of the router that is hooked to computer 2 (and of course the modem)

So what i am doing now is downloading WinAudit onto "Computer 2" then burning the files to a disk, and installing those files onto "Computer 1", then running WinAudit and it will tell me what is in the computer so i will know what drivers to get?

Suggestions...

USB External Hard drive ( these programs are only small and do not require a lot of available space/data )

USB Flash Drive... Does not need to be a huge flash drive ( Only cost 10 - 15 AUD for a 2GB , that should be sufficent )

Considering that you are from the US , Should be able to snap one up real cheap lol

BTW: in these desperate times , i suggest buying a USB flash drive :) , Should do the trick...

Best of luck!!!

Correct, when running WinAudit look for your motherboard make and model and then you will need to download the drivers for that motherboard. If you have any extra pci cards installed you will also need to download the drivers for them.
