In this crowd, I'm a dilettante when it comes to true geekery, but I do like to increase my competencies and generally make sure I do what I'm capable of doing myself. For instance, I almost always remember to make sure something is turned on and plugged in before I complain that it's not working (grin)

Anyway. I managed to set up a wireless router in the house, and now have wireless internet access with my laptop anywhere I darn well please. I also managed to hook up to the laptop the printer that Came With It. (brief moment for happy dance here)

However. Now, I need to figure out how to secure said network. I am certain this is a simple matter, once I figure out where to set those...er, settings. (See? I even lack vocabulary. For shame.) And I also need to figure out why the printer won't print on anything but the top two inches of any piece of paper before shooting it across the room. Hrm. Plus, the sound on the desktop does not work. I would very much like to undertake these tasks on my own (except if it involves actually opening up the machinery, which I'm very nervous about), but if you have helpful trouble-shooting points, I'd appreciate them.
