How to "Load Balance" without changing the IP?

Q: How to "Load Balance" without changing the IP?

I used RV042 10/100 4-Port VPN Router. I've configured the dual WAN, and enable Load Balancing for faster internet. But if I accessedhttp://ipchicken.com/ my IP Address is always chaging? How can I setup the router sticking to just one IP address?

Preferred Solution: How to "Load Balance" without changing the IP?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to "Load Balance" without changing the IP?

Let me preface by saying....taking two circuits and using them at the same time, even with protocol management from the LB is most likely not worth the effort.

But for the sake of the argument, the first hurdle you have is that both circuits need to have static IPs. What type of connections are they?

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned Changing of "minimize" buttons a theme and "close" "maximize" the above The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like Changing the "minimize" "maximize" and "close" buttons of a theme as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere Ok so I opened up the msstyles file using Restorator located in the theme folder of this VS I went into the images directory and located what seems Changing the "minimize" "maximize" and "close" buttons of a theme to be the images used for the buttons Intuitively it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones perhaps from another visual style and it should change them However would this actually work Could the theme get messed up in some other way like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy But I did run into another problem For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory Where else would they be

Hello Guys and Girls,

My wireless internet connections are currently set to a manually configured status, but this means I am having problems connecting to other wireless connections with free (ie unsecured) connections. I have tried going to properties and ticking the "Let Windows configure my wireless network settings", but I get a dialogue box coming up telling me that not all of my changes have been made.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

A:Solved: Changing wireless connection status from "Manually Configured" back to "Automatic"

Why don't we start with the make/model of the wireless router in use, as well as the wireless adapter or laptop brand. Also, what version and patch level of Windows do you use?

If you have XP-SP2, you can set the machine back to installation defaults using the following procedure.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

ie9 new browser opens "blank" windows 7. Changing it to "home" doesn't last if you shut down. Next session, it still opens "blank"

A:ie9 new browser opens "blank" windows 7. Changing it to "home" doesn't

Welcome to Seven Forums bobbot11. Help us understand. When you 1st open IE, it opens to a blank page instead of your home page? Or is opening new tabs that open a blank tab? Or is opening a new window that opens a blank window?

If IE is opening to a blank page instead of a home page you have set, try re-registering IE.

Download the IE Restorator, and choose Re-register 32 bit IE in (whichever version your OS is) W7

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Hello,

I have several email accounts configured on my windows mail on my Vista home premium and one of them is configured as the default email.

When I reply to emails received on email accounts other than the default email the "from" email address does not change to the email address of the received account.

I understand that the email address in the "from' field when I start a "new" message or create mail is that of the configured default email. My question is while replying to an email received in other configured accounts should not the "from" field email id change from the default email id to the email address of the email to which is replied.

hope I have been able to convey my problem.

Advice is seeked to the above problem.

Thanks & Best regards,

A:Default "From" email address not changing while replying to emails received on others

Welcome,

I cannot definitively answer yes, or no. I can tell you how it works on my computer. Unless, I manually change the email account, the default is always used. It is easy to make the change, you merely use the drop down menu located at the upper right.

The from is your address. Think about it, if I send you and email (from GMX,.com), how could the from say GMX, you do not even have or even know about GMX.

The All Programs button is located at Start Menu > Panels > Basic > MoreProgramsTab

The All Programs arrow is located at Start Menu > Panels > Basic > MoreProgramsArrow and Start Menu > Panels > Basic > MoreProgramsArrowBack

To change the text color you need to add a text color property at Start Menu > Panels > Basic > MoreProgramsTab

To add text color property to the following.
Click on Add Property
Use the drop-down menu under Type choose color under Property choose textcolor then Click OK
It always picks black as the default color click on the color
Picked the color you want and then Click OK

Look at the screenshots below will demonstrate how to add that text color property.

Make sure you add this text color property at Start Menu > Panels > Basic > MoreProgramsTab not the location shown in the screenshots.

A:Game "hardware cursor" disappears after changing text size

This has to do with DPI scaling. Technically, when you change DPI different images should be used (higher DPI - higher quality image).
150% probably is that border where image should be changed. Likely, in your case that image is missing or somewhat corrupt (or might be a Blizzard's bug).

But Microsoft knows about problems with scaling. In Windows 8 Dev. Preview, at least in Metro part of it, scaling is done in a different way.

I'm trying to change the colour of my toolbar and the headers of other windows that I open. But when I type "change window glass colour" into the start menu I don't get the option to do that. I know that there must be an option to do this in Windows 7 because my laptop has the same OS and I have changed it several times on that. I have read in another thread that it might be to do with Windows Aero. But the troubleshooter is bringing up nothing and changing the Theme from "Basic" to "Aero" and back has no effect on being able to change the window glass colour.

I can send screenshots to any replies if that will help. Any replies greatly appreciated as this is bugging me.

Thanks,

A:Changing the "Window Glass Colour" in Windows 7 Home Premium

You need aero active to do what you want. Whether or not win7 aero works or not also has a lot to do with your video driver. You should check with the video card (or motherboard if applicable) manufacturer's website for the latest driver version that is applicable. Also try googling to see if there is a way to determine whether aero is active or not.

Here is one example




There is a corresponding service UxSms (Desktop Window Manager Session Manager- Provides Desktop Window Manager startup and maintenance services).

This starts a process dwm.exe. With this started, AERO is enabled (if stopped AERO is disabled). So basically if the process dwm.exe runs, AERO is enabled (read the comments, this means that AERO themes might, but not necessarily have be used. However, without DWM no AERO).Click to expand...

In any case, I'm looking for a way to change the default locatoin to look for "choose form" so this error message won't appear every time.

If i choose "extend displays", the mouse will not switch. I can see on the second screen an update window from the "dual monitor" program but cannot move the mouse over to that screen.

one monitor is on dvi and the other on vga but that was not a problem with the old monitor.

suggestions? I am considering a stand alone graphics card with dual dvi.

Sometimes when I try to open the Computer window (either by clicking the start button and then Computer or hitting Windows key + E) it will take a long time to open (upwards of 90 seconds). It doesn't happen all of the time, but starts happening seemingly at random. I can open other folders, but as soon as I click Computer, it freezes for a bit before working properly.

I can get it to stop by rebooting, but it seems to always eventually happen again. I know it's not a hardware problem, as this is happening on both my desktop and laptop.

A:"My Computer"/"Computer" slow load problem

There's a number of ways we can retrieve info on this, so let's start with the easiest.

First, grab Process Explorer and open it up. Sort by the CPU or CSwitch Delta columns (highest at top). Now, attempt to open Computer, and see which process started spiking. Most likely I would venture to guess it's the explorer.exe process. Either way, double-click it to open and see its current running threads. If Computer is still loading, you should see the highest-load thread at the top which should be relevant. Dbl-click it and it'll give you the callstack for it. Copy and paste to here for evaluation. If Computer window pops up prior to doing all this you can keep attempting to open it and perform the instructions while it's hung.

In addition to this, you may also wish to create a dump file of the process while it's loading the Computer window. Right click the process that's spiking and create either a minidump or a full dump. Minidumps are very small and should attach no problem to your post, but are very limited in details. Full dumps will have to be uploaded to a 3rd-party filesharing site.

Note that if it does the same for both desktop and laptop, go ahead and provide us the details following these instructions for both laptop and desktop. Specify which is which. The dump files from each would also be beneficial.

Hi, this maybe an easy question for people here to answer, but for a guy like me who's not that experienced with computers its complicated to me...

I want to use some computer cd's here for putting some new software on them. they are already full with other software some other guy put on it. but i want to delete his stuff on the cd so i can add my own. every time i try to delete it tells me that its " read only " status and because of this i am unable to delete things on the cd.

my question is, is it possible to delete the stuff on the cd or change the read only status so i can free up some space on it enabling me to do so? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Changing cd's " read only " status so i can delete things on it

The only cd`s you can overwrite, are cd-rw`s. All you need to do, is format them and you have a blank cd again.

If the cd`s in question are just ordinary cdr`s, there is nothing you can do.

In Windows XP, when you right-click in the files pane of the Windows Explorer window, there is a "New" menu that lists a bunch of apps for which you can create a new blank file. That list is too long and I would like to change it. Windows Help is useless, and I can't find anything in the Registry that applies. Anyone know how to do this?
Note that this is Windows Explorer (WE), and has nothing to do with Internet Explorer (IE). (The two are hopelessly confused in the Help package. )

The Internet Exploer 10 has the Bulgarian lang also installed.

He wants to send this laptop to his mother-in-law overseas who knows no English but wants to play on the computer and is embarrassed to let others know she knows nothing about computers.

The problem is, the OS messages on shutdown are in Bulgarian, but not all the startup messages.
In particular is the "Starting Windows" message on bootup. I don't see a tutorial on how to edit some file to check the string messages to see which ones aren't translated and have him translate the rest to Bulgarian, save the file and test it to make sure the messages are correct for her. I see the shutdown message tutorial and the Welcome one, but not bootup.

Is this typically the case for any "not fully translated" MUI installed on an English Win 7 (or vista)? What if the Win 7 was orginally installed with the Bulgarian native version of the OS? That is the version sold in Bulgaria would be fully translated and one would then have to install the English MUI. Maybe this is the route to take.

Are there any projects out there whereby people use resource hacker to convert non-fully translated MUIs for win 7 into a fully translated version of the OS? Then one would unzip the updated file versions onto their system to bring it up to a fully translated OS.

What about extracting the MUI download and using Resource hacker to correct/update the translations and then repackage and install this updated MUI onto the English version? Hence ones own custom MUI pack.

Another question is, I want to use dism to patch my AIO with all the hotfixes using the hotfix rollup, Msoft reliability and improvement fixes, and sec updates onto my Win 7 SP1, plut dotnetfix and other programs such as IE 10. However, MSoft says that if I install this patched Win 7 Sp1 and then try to install a Language MUI, that it breaks some of the translations. One must install the MUI before patching SP1 to prevent this. Is this true? Is there a MUI service pack for win 7 sp1 out yet?

I've tried this, but no change in the "starting windows" message in the Bulgarian language

open elevated CMD and do these 2 commands :
bcdedit /set {current} locale BG-bg
bcdboot %WinDir% /l BG-bg

Just set up a workgroup for my desktop (my pc), laptop (wife's pc), and two external backup drives. Did some additional drive mapping for access ease.

Everything is shared in both directions and functioning properly.

ISSUE: The passwords were set up the same on both computers, and now I realize I need to change the passwords and want them to be identical as they are now. When I tried to change it, the network shares didn't connect properly.

QUESTIONS:
1. What is the proper procedure to change the passwords but not lose the existing network connectivity?
2. Can I set this up so that there are no passwords at all? (Ideal)
3. And if not, what is the shortest length password that will work?

Thanks,

I do not want this to occur. Is there any way I can change this setting? I only want the date modified to change when I actually make a modification to the document. Thank you.

How does one change a Word folder that is "Read Only" so that files can be edited when on a CD-RW disk? The disk speed is compatible with the CD driver
 

A:Solved: Changing "Read Only" file Attributes

It's not recomanded, if even it's possible to edit word document on the CDRW: it will be very slow, it will alter the CD lifetime, and depending on the format and burning method the disc could be full very quieckly.

The only realistic solution is to copy the folder on a hard disc, do your work then copy-paste and replace the whole folder back to the CDRW.

To remove the read-only attribute of files in a folder, including subfolders: Type this little program in notepad, save it under changeattribute.bat and copy-paste it in the folder where you want to change the attribute. Double-clic on the batfile icon in explorer.

If the Keys "ComDlg32" or "PlacesBar" don't exist, just right-click "Policies" and choose "New" "Key" and call it ComDlg32, then right-click ComDlg32 and choose "New" "Key" and call it PlacesBar. With PlacesBar highlighted, go into the right pane and create five new String Values "Place0" through "Place4".

you can replace the default places by making/altering the Data in the String Value:-

A:Persistent disconnects due to "Router changing IP address"

The router does NOT change the IP address of the modem, if anything, it's the other way around.

If a direct connection to the modem still has issues, and this happens on multiple computers, you appear to have isolated it to the modem or something farther down the line.

I'd keep calling the ISP until they fix it.

Win XP changed a folder of mine with all MP3's to some kind of music folder mode automatically and i cannot figure out any way to change it back. I want to be able to list the songs by modified date, so i can put new songs at the bottom or top, but instead it only lets me arrange things by album, artist etc.
I changed it back to "Documents (for any file type)" and the setting stayed, but it still sorts everything by album or artist - no option for sort by modified date. Really hate this music folder mode, as it takes a while to open up due to it looking up tags on every song.

hi,

this may sound to you a bit odd but i would like to know if there's any way possible to change the default size of a window when it gets maximized.

i wanted to do this because my monitor's freaked out! the left and right borders of the screen aren't visible, as if you had streched them out of the monitor's display. But i didn't. In fact, when i try diminuish the horizontal size (through the monitor's buttons) nothing happens. I really think the monitor's busted.

Anyway, because i will not be able to change it in a while, i would like to know if there's any way to limit somehow the horizontal size of my whole display, and, if not possible, change the default size of windows.

it's a bit odd, i know...i tried to be as clear as possible in describing my situation, i'm sorry if i failed..lol

Can I use the same bootsect.exe solution that SIW2 recommended for another user who posted here (Drakmyth)? I would greatly appreciate any help before I do something stupid and accidentally nuke my computer.

Thanks very much in advance,

Welcome!

It is actually pretty simple to remove the XP drive. Just unplug it, and run Startup Repair if 7 won't boot.

Hope this helps,

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

I tried to associate the file extension .txt to a new editor program
with the well known cmdline programs ASSOC and FTYPE.

No, assigning them through WinExplorer menu does not work.
But this is another problem which should not discussed here.

When I type now one of the following alternative commands at the CommandPrompt then Win7 returns me something like:

assoc .txt=txtfile

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: .txt"

or

ftype txtfile=D:\notepad++\notepad++.exe "%%1"

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: txtfile"

Why?

The command above work fine under WinXP

Hi Looking for insight advice re KB According to Infoworld it was quot Optional quot in May but I was not offered it then This KB3054476 "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" offered as week it was offered as quot Important quot and quot Recommended quot but only for one of my Win boxes I have read the MS KB article as well as THIS FORUM THREAD the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update However there isn't much out on the web about it And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as quot Optional quot but now is quot Important quot KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" or quot Recommended quot I don't think I quot need quot it as I have no webcam on this box And I don't like KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken So questions Is it safe to install Is it really necessary important Or would I be OK to hide it Thanks very much in advance

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

I already went into Charm Bar -> Personalization -> and changed the Background Color and Accent Color to Dark Grey as shown below - but my Shutdown background is a light blue...

Anyway I can fix this? My Login Screen is Dark Grey as well, the only color difference is the Shut Down screen.

Just got a new notebook with Vista Ultimate installed. Under User Accounts it lists "All Users", "Default User" and "Owner". I'd like to change Owner to my name. Is that possible? I tried right-clicking it but Rename isn't an option. The computer was set up in the store I bought it and I suppose that's what they put in. My initial log-in as Administrator did not require a password. I've since changed that and I now log in with my name as an Administrator and using a password. But my name isn't listed as one of the Users. I remember going into the Registry in previous versions of Windows and changing things like this but am reluctant to do so in Vista because I know so little about it.
 

A:Changing User folder name from "Owner" to me

The best way to do this , is to "Make a new admin account", Ste up your email and make the system settings that you want. Copy all of the data files, favorites and etc from the "Owner" to your New account. After you are sure that you have copied all of your data, delete the old account and files.

I've found some tweakui-type apps for 7, including ContextEdit. But it doesn't have exactly what I want.

I want a simple GUI that lets me see what items appear under "New" when I right click on the desktop or in a folder... and I want to be able to remove them easily.

I already found a registry fix for the briefcase. But do I really have to go fishing through the registry for each possible extension's "Shellnew" entry? Someone must have made an app that does this by now.

A:Changing location of "My Documents" does not work

Hello Gandolf, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, I would recommend to restore your Documents folder back to C using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below.

User Folders - Restore Default Location

Afterwards, create a new folder on E named whatever you like, move all your files into this new folder, include the new folder to your Documents library, and make the new folder in the library the default save location.

This way you don't have to move your Documents folder from C and risk breaking it, have all your files saved on E, and be able to access them all from your Documents library.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Hello,

As I moved to Windows 7 from XP, I noticed that select folder dialog has changed, and for worse. This one:



It doesn't remember last used folder, it doesn't allow to paste address, so every time I have to navigate down to the needed folder - it takes up time, especially with repeated tasks.
Many programs call for this dialog - from installers to various applications.

I would like to change it to something like this:



Or similar. It would be so much better.

How do I do it? 3rd party application solutions are also acceptable.
