Thank you again for your response...Really gives people like me the confidence
to ask in this mailing list...
I know that we are connected to an ADSL modem and we are renting a router
device to act as our gateway...I know the login & password for the router and
I can possibly change the settings BUT, this is where my problem is...
I have been using FreeBSD for the last 7-8 months now since I threw away my MS
Windows CD's because I have finally found the OS that was meant to be mine.
Since I have been using FreeBSD, I still have not configure my printer
settings and when people asked me why, I used to answer to them that I am
using FreeBSD and I need more readings to configure my system but before I
could finish the last phrase of my sentence, they would say "Oh, your not
using Windows! so you are using Linux!..." "Why use strange
things?"...Imagine that Linux sounds strange to them, what would happen if I
start explaining what FreeBSD is!...Hehehe...And the person in-charge on our
network does not even know why we have to configure our DNS numbers from our
ISP in order to connect to the internet...!!! and I only understood what DNS
is after I started FreeBSD...When I tried to say that you should try FreeBSD
because I learned it using the said OS...and the answer was "My mind is no
longer interested in strange OSes...!!!
So I do not want to ask about this thing because I know that they will not and
can not understand...hehehe
Sorry for this kind of response but I really appreciate the time for your
responses and I will take on this challenge in another environment in the
Forgive me for the wasted bandwidth...

Yes it did and I will really keep this Emails for future reference...
Once again, thanks a lot...
