I installed it but when I ran the program it says The OpenGL Driver doesn't support wglChoosePixelFormatARB. wall I read online a lot of suggestions about updating the driver (somthing) thru internet. Is there some way I can fix this without having to go online since I still can not figure out how to get the internet for the new rig? help

Did you update your QW with the newest patch?

I would also get the newest driver for your video card.

A hub.. plug the network cable into the hub and then plug your two computers into the hub.

$20 for a hub ... or so.

Yep you'll have to uninstall your current drivers and install the newest, either you're running the default windows driver or your current driver is corrupt. Also if you're getting one, get a switch not a hub. lol

Are you doing cable internet or dsl (or possibly fios)? Do you have a router?

Or use SneakerNet to get the updates: download on connected computer, copy to usb flash drive, sneaker it over to the new unit, and ...

You'll need a router or hub anyway.

You might get a KVM switch (Keyboard-Video-Mouse) so you can more conveniently operate both units at same time, with only one K, V & Mouse.

KVMs are really convienient when all your relatives and friends want you to fix their computers.

Yeah I connected the new rig yesterday to fix all the problems it had. everything running fine now especially etqw. I think I made the mistake 999 mentioned about installing the window vista driver instead of the nvidia one. Thanks for help, but I am confused I thought all I needed was a hub? I have this verizon small dsl modem box with 1 yellow cable that goes to the back of this pc. I believe the hub like sissy mentioned would go to the other end of the yellow cable and then I would just connect both pcs to the hub. I do understand where the switch would come in. doh

Hub is a shared connection, ie, only one system at a time will be able to utilize the connection, switch allows everything connected to it full access all the time. A router will do what you want.

A ROUTER is what you want Cheney.

Thanks for educating me, Zeus. I had assumed the hub I had allowed full access all the time. I wonder if that caused me mysterious problems back in those days. I do remember wondering why one would buy a switch, since the functions seem to be the same as I assssumed a hub had.

You guys are beating a dead horse here, too much info can be more harmful then not enough, simple straight forward answer, answered in layman's terms works. This is heading off topic.
