Thank you for the quick responses I have tried both of those options. The translator was never on at all and my bandwidth is set to min. Also there is another person in the house on the same network, different computer and he has no problems at all in second life. I can sign into his computer using my Avie and all is fine. So it is certainly something with my own viewer and computer. We are on the same network, and it is not a wireless network.
Additional problems are now occuring, If I add items to a box, they duplicate, if I take a prim back into my inventory, it duplicates....Now only if the viewer would duplicate my Lindens....hehe.
