    Your issue with the internet is why I went to Linux OS for my 28...
    That and a better WiFi card

    On my CF-W8 I have the same problem as you. I am using "Internet Explorer 8" and will not let me update it to a higher version because I am using XP . I have install "Google Chrome" and now have no problem connecting to the internet. You can thank MS for your problems.

    My question is... why are these "CF-28" discs labeled "FZ-G1 Series"? I thought Toughbook recovery disks were strictly limited by Model and Mark numbers.

    Confused Wally

    Alright, I've installed another browser (since chrome kept giving me errors while installing) and it all works just fine.
    Now I'll have to install some low-resources antivirus (Bitdefender gave me a warning about the poor performance of my PC), and I am set.
    Thank you for all your help boys! :)

    The guy sent me a message this morning . The CD's are for a 28. My guess Heartlands messed up when they printed the label for the cd's. I knew something was messed up when I noticed it said G1 and it had XP for an operating system which is just too old for a G1

    New info:
    Use MK3 drivers for a MK2. Don’t for the MK1. The MK is basically a new computer. Like a Ford F-150 is the MK1 and the F-250 is the MK2 and MK3. I personally don’t like MK1 CF-28s but if I get offered one it’s something I think about every day then I would get it

    For the truck enthusiasts I added that ;)
