Hook up Maxis wireless broadband connection with wireless router

Yesterday my boss gave me a wireless maxis broadband modem and a TP-Link TL-WR542G wireless router and asked me to hook-up those two devices so that our wireless maxis broadband connection can be shared throughout the entire office. My office currently using Streamyx Enterprise 1.0Mbps package and this maxis wireless broadband serves as a backup and emergency Internet connection plan.


The task was quite important given that we have encountered so many problems and downtimes on our streamyx connection. Most recently was just last week when we had almost no Internet connection for almost 4 days as a result of bad luck and mishaps that among others are unreliable technical support, faulty modem and also faulty splitter (can you imagine all of that happened in one week?)

BOOTMGR is compressed

Last Thursday, I’m doing a routine disk cleanup on my office’s PC C: drive, as the current free space is reduced to only 516MB. This time however, I did checked the box for compressed old files, as doing so will save me approximately 4GB of space. Found out later that my choice wasn’t a very good one.
Next day, when I switched on my PC, I was greeted by an error message right after POST screen. I got this error message on my screen,

BOOTMGR is compressed. Press ctrl+alt+del to restart

Well pressing ctrl+alt+del didn’t helped much, it’s just restrted the PC again and the same error message is displayed when POST is completed. So I turn to the trustworthy Uncle Google for help but mostly I found out this problem happened on Vista installed PC, while my PC is running Windows 2000 Professional as a primary OS with Microsoft Longhorn (that Vista in beta version) as a secondary OS in a dual boot configuration. So none of the solution offered worked for me.
