Preferred Solution: Down/Up bandwidth issues for single user account

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: Down/Up bandwidth issues for single user account

How far are you from the access point when you're using that account? Also have you checked UAC settings? That might have something to do with it.

Hi guys Recently I ve been having trouble connecting to my mobile phones WiFi hotspot with my laptop I can connect to the hotspot with any other device such as the tablet I m using now and I can also connect to any other WiFi using my laptop The problem appears to exist purely between my laptop and my phone When issues hotspot Mobile attempting to connect it will begin authenticating and then disconnect offering me the troubleshooter Sometimes there is a small volume of packet transfer but not often I have tried disabling and reenabling all of my network adaptors to no avail and I m somewhat at a loss of what to do Mobile hotspot issues next The phone in question is a Motorola razr I if that helps but I have to point out that it worked flawlessly Mobile hotspot issues until recently I suspect the culprit may Mobile hotspot issues be hamachi as it had very recently been installed onto my computer at the time and it appears to be a known trouble maker But I still don t understand why no other problems have arisen Hamachi has been uninstalled but the problem persists Any suggestions or ideas that could help would be greatly appreciated Thanks for your time guys Mencil nbsp

A:Mobile hotspot issues

What OS is on the Laptop and which Firewall are you using?





The problem appears to exist purely between my laptop and my phone. When attempting to connect it will begin authenticating and then disconnect, offering me the troubleshooter.Click to expand...

huh? Connecting how: Bluetooth, Infra Red? The WiFi adaptors of both the phone and the laptop are never going to connect, unless you're attempting peer-to-peer which has limited utility.

If you're connecting via a router, then the PC is not the issue.

Hi, I have a single network with wired and wireless connection. I would like to control bandwidth usage by the users because some users just download big files while others watch movies on the network.
how best and how first can I solve this?
is it possible for me to allocate bandwidth to a specific access point?
I badly want to find users who are watching movies or downloading big files and control them.
thank you

First caveat, there's a difference between Monitoring vs Controlling bandwidth.

That said, Paessler has good tools for monitoring. It is not clear that they also control.

Hi everyone,

I seriously need some perspective. I've ordered an Overlord Tempest X270 OC 1440p monitor. I'm trying to decide between:

1. 2x XFX R9 290X (CrossFire)
2. 2x nVidia GTX 970 (MSI/Asus Strix) (SLI)
3. Single nVidia GTX 980 PNY XLR8 Pro OC

Other parts are:

EVGA 850 G2
Intel Core i5 4690K
Asus Maximus VII Hero
GSkill Trident 16GB
Intel 730 Series SSD (480 GB)
NZXT S340

Have been reading up a lot but am finding it hard to choose. Any help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:GTX 970 SLI, Radeon 290X CF or Single GTX 980 for 1440p (120Hz)

Only the first two options will get you to 120 fps on any game made within the last few years. I have a machine with an i7 and 970 SLI and a machine with an i7 and an EVGA 980 Superclock and at 2560x1440 only the 970s can manage... and not all the time. Most of the time I set my monitor refresh to 100Hz because there's a much greater chance that my cards can get me there.

I don't have any AMD GPUs atm so can't say about that but I will say that I've had one hell of a time getting XFX to honor their warranties in the past.

It's been a long time since I last posted on this forum but this has been stumping me as of late.

I have a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer liquid cooling loop for a while and lately they have been acting up. I noticed that my temperatures on idle could sometimes go up as high as 80 celcius, which is absolutely not right.

This happened after I serviced my machine, and I think I bumped the liquid cooling around in the process of it. I noticed however, if I keep knocking my radiator on the side, the reported temperatures get cooler, and I notice that I can feel the hot air being dissipated from the fins (previously cool). The thing though is that after leaving it for a while again, the fins don't seem to dissipate anything, and the cpu temps start rising again.

I have a feeling that there are air bubbles getting stuck in the loop somewhere, but I have no idea how to get them out or at least out of the way in a closed loop.

Anyone have any suggestions/ideas?

A:Logitech G502 mouse connection/recognition issues

I just fixed this exact problem on my Win7 Media Center x64. It's a bit convoluted, but the core of the issue is Windows not recognizing the device type properly. What you have to do is open up Device Manager and assign the drivers for Windows. This should fix the mouse.

Head into Device Manager and click View up top. Choose Devices by Connection. You'll see why in a second.
Expand the top entry until you find a PCI Bus. Expand that, then expand all the USB Host Controllers. One of them should have an entry for G502 Gaming Mouse under it.
Right click it and select Update Driver Software, then Browse My Computer for Driver Software. Now click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer."
Go down to USB Devices and install it as a USB Composite Device. The mouse should light up. Nice! It still doesn't work, though.
Now there'll be two more entries underneath the USB Composite Device, both of which should be G502 Gaming Mouse. Right click one and go back to the list of device drivers. This time go to Human Interface Devices and select USB Input Device for each of them. A bunch of new devices should populate beneath each USB Input Device, one of which should be HID-Compliant Mouse. Your mouse should now work!

I have an installation folder on my main machine(Windows 7) with all my software. I have repeatedly run into issues connecting odd devices to my shared folder. This time I have installed Windows 10 Technical Preview (on a different machine) and don't understand why it tells me I can't access my own machine. After all these years, you would think user friendly would be a reality. It seems to be a coin toss as to which machines will connect. I hate never knowing I can access my own machine without issue. Here I am trying to install applications but yet I can't get to my storage location.

What is the secret to sharing your machine, so that anyone on the same network can access shared folders?

Edit: I always turn on "Network Discovery" and "File and Print Sharing".
 

A:Network connection issues (year after year)

I'm more brutal via the firewall:

set trust localhost and your lan ip's, eg 192.168.0.1/24

then add two rules for only the PRIVATE PROFILE

inbound allow tcp/udp from 192.168.0.1/24 to any for ports 137-139,445
outbound allow tcp/udp from any to 192.168.0.1/24 for ports 137-139,445
I use a much more complicate scheme in reality to enforce known vs unknown devices and to segregate WiFI from wired access, but that's just me.

In services, ensure these are running

Bonjour Service ( mDNSResponder)
fdPHost
Network Connections
Network List Service

Hello,

I bought a R9 270X by XFX. My current specs are:

CPU: AMD A10 7800k (Standard Clock Speeds, Graphics Disabled)
RAM: 4GB (2 sticks, both working)
Motherboard: FM2, Gigabyte
PSU: 500 watt 80+ Cert Silver
HDD: 500GB WD Blue

So the issue is that the R9 card consistenly crashes out of all games no matter if I uninstall the drivers or reinstall them. I have tried removing the drivers through catalyst control center and through application based tools (DisplayDriverUninstaller). Once I uninstall and reinstall, it works, until the computer is restarted and then rinse and repeat.

Is this the card saying it is dying? If so it is a weird way of graphics card dying.

So I recently picked up this monitor for some sweet 144hz gaming. Used it for a while at 144hz and it worked perfectly. Recently hooked up a second monitor and noticed a drop in frames. Went to check my advanced resolution settings and for some reason my monitor had defaulted to 60hz. When I tried to bump it back to 144hz I get this weird flickering/artifacting going on but it works great at 120 hz. I am using the dvi cable that came with the monitor and I'm running a gtx970 overclocked to 1430hz gpu and 7600 hz memory. I get this effect when I default my gpu to it's factory oc settings so I'm not sure what's going on here. Is it my gpu or do I need a new dvi?

I'd say yes you have a full height card. The half-height is only about 2 inches. If you upgrade your PSU to 550 like you said you would, I see no reasons why you couldn't run a 750. The 750's are not long cards and should fit in your case with ease.

I am confused and have no idea where to start... I apologise in advance for the wall of text.

Recently I have been experiencing odd issues with my WiFi router ( at least I think its the router) ZyXel Keenetic Giga II. The most annoying of which is the periodic inability to load random webpages. For example, I might be able to load google but not any of the search results while at the same time being able to browse reddit on my phone or tablet. The pattern changed constantly and it doesn't seem to affect any particular web pages. Like I said - random. This happens once or twice a week and seems to be increasing in frequency. I have tried rebooting the router. Rolling back to factory settings, changing DNS. With no result. It only resolves itself when it "feels" like it and usually lasts from 5 min to several hours. It is also worth mentioning that I hardly ever use my laptop and most of the browsing and streaming is done using various mobile devices.

Any help in defeating my router would be greatly appreciated.

A:Odd Wi-Fi Issues -- Fluctuating Performance

What are you using for WiFi Router. Are you using rental equipment from TW? Are you using all-in-one device to manage, CATV, Digital Phone, WiFi, Cable/Router/Modem. Do you have anything like that. If so has the ISP sent a hit or firmware patch to this device.

PC with the issue how the desktop connected? Via Ethernet Cable or WiFi.

So you pay for 22 mbps down but seeing only 2 mbps down on your desktop . Have you replaced the anything lately? Have you upgraded that Windows 8 PC to Windows 8.1?

Hi there guys

I suddenly can't connect to wifi, but the problem is solved when I use the cable, and connect my laptop directly to modem. surprisingly I checked and it seems I can connect with my tablet to wifi spot! I used recovery and system restore point, but it didn't help.

I really appreciate your help.

oh and yes in wireless mode, I can see different wifis, but when I click to connect, it tries "connecting" but fails as well.
 

A:Investigate router, access point issues

Do you use MS Update in Autoupdate? looking to see if you are 'current'.

get make/model of your WiFI device (see device mgr),
find the version of the existing driver, then
see if you can find a newer version; install it if found.

Hi,

I am playing around with Server 2012. If I want to have a laptop configured for "at office use" with option to go on site, what would be the best way to do that in order to retain access to shared locations on server that is "at office"?

Should I create a standard windows account unrelated to my domain controller, and have them VPN regardless if they are in office or on site? Or is there a way to have a laptop configured for domain use, where it will still be functional (local computer use) on site outside of the office, even without internet connection (I know you can's VPN without it).

Thanks
 

A:Best way to set up local and remote user with Server 2012

Well this is kind of interesting. You can in fact use a domain laptop away from the local network as long as you have logged into int once on the domain so it can cache your password for future log ins. Now comes to the more difficult part of your question's. Accessing files remotely while not online, you can set up what is called offline files. Offline files will give you acess to your files away from domain network. So if you choose to do offline files any changes made to the file while away from the domain controller where you shares are set up will have to be synced once back on the domain network. So if you make changes to lets say docA while off domain network, once you get back to domain network you will have to sync offline files to the server to update any changes you have made. This set up would not require offsite network but can bring problems when syncing once you reconnect on domain. But now lets say you have the same shares and now you have multiple individials with the same access to the shares. Say you make changes to docA and the other person makes changes to docA while offiste. Once you both reconnect and sync to server you could have issues with data such as duplicate information or doc merging. VPN would be the best option for sure....

My Gateway NV52 keyboard randomly stops typing o, p, l, ., and (.
All f a sudden it starts working as normal. Again while I am typing, the above mentioned letters stop working.

I checked for dirt stuck under the keys but nothing was there

the weirdest thing is, I tried a USB flexible keyboard instead and that was working properly for a while and that o, l, and . stopped working on that one as well.

I am confused why it's happening., and sick of filling the blanks of o, p. l with "on-screen keyboard". Please help me to figure this out.

Thanks guys, appreciated.

I recently picked up some more ram. I switched out all my old ram 16gb ( 4x4gb sticks) and replaced it with 32gb (4x8gb sticks) my comp is now telling me I have 32gb but only 16gb is usable. I went into bios to see if I can change anything, but I can't change any ram settings whatsoever. I also noticed it's telling me I'm at 1333mhz when my new ram is 1866mhz. I'd like to have all 32gb usable and at 1866mhz speed. Any help would be appreciated. My mobo is asus p8h77 pro which says it can take 32gb at 2200mhz speed max.

Which operating system do you have. It is possible the operating system is limited to 16GB. The sounds extremely familiar to the 32-bit operating system notifications when more than 4GB of memory was installed.

Windows XP is limited to 128GB.

Windows Vista Home Premium is limited to 16GB.
Windows Vista Business/Ultimate is limited to 128GB.

Windows 7 Home Premium is limited to 16GB.
Windows 7 Professional is limited to 192GB.

I have an AMD Sapphire 6950. It is about 2 and one half years old. I have noticed in the past few months that when I am playing games it makes a resonating noise.

Even a simple game like League of Legends, a game with low demands, causes my card to make this noise.

Thoughts?

* I periodically clean my case so there is no dust build up.

* Here is the exact sound: If what this guy says is true this will be my last Sapphire card.

Hello...I will start from the begining .

I bought the Acer V5 and tried booting it up...it came with boot-up Linux which means nothing to me so I made a Windows 8 bootable USB and the problems started. First I could'n find the USB and after enabling the Legacy mode it finally found it and booted from it. Turned out the partitions are GPT and as I made the USB MBR it couldn't install so I canceled which I guess was my mistake but there was no other option. After that I created the bootable USB with GPT partition scheme and tried again. Unfortunately this time I got something called GNU GRUB....wth? I googled around and found the commands required for booting - root (hd1,0), then chainloader +1 and finally boot. Then I get the famous The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors with Status: 0xc000000e. Of course tried that couple of more times but still to no avail. I cannot recover or repair as Windows was never really installed, so I don't know what to do....Hopefully someone here would be able to help. Thanks in advance guys.

I am thinking about getting a docking station. But I am a little confused on what the advantages or disadvantages or using either. Or should I just stick with using my software?
 

A:Dual vs Single SATA Docking Station, for Clonging

I have a copy station which takes two hard drives and have found it easy to use and reliable. The only drawback I've noticed concerns the relative sizes of the two drives. There's no problem copying from a small hard drive to a larger or equal sized SSD drive. You can then use software to rearrange and resize partitions. However, if you have a large hard drive and want to copy to a smaller SSD drive it's not possible. Mind you it is a few years since I bought my copy station so that may have changed.

I am running Windows 8.1. After restarts, the laptop screen would be blank, yet the computer would load. If I hooked up a 2nd monitor, it would show the desktop on that screen but laptop screen blank.

Now when I try to type on that computer (I'm currently on a different computer) the typing of the keys is all off (none of the letters actually type what they are supposed to and some open up random windows and command prompts)

I am wondering if this is a virus. Currently running Malwarebytes. I did a system restore earlier and the problem wasn't solved.
 

A:Blank Screen error and typing issues

Could be a virus, but could also mean the motherboard is faulty. If still in warranty, RTM.

Does the laptop have a bootable CD reader? If so, then download and make a bootdisk of a small linux (e.g. puppy linux). Booting off that will virtually prove if the motherboard is faulty or not.

Hi there, my name in Mark, Over the past few days my whole internet randomly cuts off and goes back on, as if its being hit offline. I have ran through the forums and have checkout out the firewall and even done multiple virus scans and everything is coming up clear. I have a Virgin Media Superhub so its a combination modem and router. I have messed around with a few settings on the router itself. Im really struggling as I contacted my internet provider and they said they have no problem on their end. They also reset my router on a high frequency but I am still having the same issue. After having looked over multiple forums and videos and browsing through google. This issue will not resolve. It seems to occur more often when I try to run online gaming through my xbox one but it has happened a few times when the only thing that is on is my pc. I have a gaming pc and im not sure what other information you guys need. Any help would be amazing and to kick whatevers butt is annoying my internet.!
 

A:Internet Issues

Log into the router and find the setting MTU. It usually defaults to 1500 but that allows something called packet fragmentation. Change it to 1492 and it will stop that.

I have joined a computer (PC1) to a domain control server (2008), and user able to login using their domain user account - although recently I have found out that even though the computer (PC1) do not connect to a server, user still able to access using their domain account.
Is there a way for me to restrict domain account user from accessing the computer (PC1) if they are disconnected from server?
Hope my explanation make sense to you guyz.

Thank in advance
 

A:Prevening domain user from accessing Computer

Lots to be considered. Joining a domain is intended to give the company admin configuration control of all the company users.
This is normal, expected and even proper for the company to do this.




restrict domain account userClick to expand...

hmm; only the company admin should be able to do this and almost always it is done using some scripts, NOT by loggin into your PC. So - - who is accessing your PC remotely, the admin - - how do you know this occurs?

PCs joined to a domain usually get a replacement for PC Login - - the network form and that creates a link to the domain controller.

So within that past month my mobile users have started having issues with our VPN. One day they can connect with no problems and then the next day they receive error 800 or error 807. There are several weird things going on. For one it doesn't just happen to certain users. The problem effects one user one day and then another user the next day. Also some can connect while others cannot. And in one case we had two users co-located at the same offsite place and neither could connect. One had error 800 and the other had 807.

Also, the users can ping the vpn server but as soon as they receive the error 800 or 807 they can no longer ping it. I tried restarting the vpn server for a user that received one of those errrors and could no longer ping the server. Once the server rebooted the user was able to ping but when he tried to connect he got the error and then was no longer able to ping it. Does anyone have any ideas for me?

The vpn server is on Server 2008 and my clients run Windows 7.

So a bit of background I have been having several issues with Issues x505-q898 Qosmio with my laptop The first has been a severe overheating issue at times though I was able to help solve the problem by using a laptop cooling pad for a time Eventually though even that wasn t helping and neither was trying to clean out the heat sinks using compressed air I refuse to blow the dust back into the laptop Being the laptop was already out of warranty I disassembled the laptop down to the motherboard which I have to say thanks Toshiba for refusing to release any of Issues with Qosmio x505-q898 your service manuals I opened up the heat sinks thoroughly cleaned out the heat sinks reapplied thermal paste to both the GPU and CPU and reassembled the laptop Using Core Temp and a GPU monitor my temps are well within normal operating range However I am still having issues Now when I start my laptop up if my battery is plugged in and the AC adapter is plugged in the computer will shut down without any notice within a few minutes The lights on the LEDs on the front turn off even though its plugged in and will not restart without removing both the battery and power being removed hitting the power button a couple times and plugging it back in Now if I don t have my battery plugged in it lasts a lot longer but still shuts off periodically for no reason and has to be unplugged Issues with Qosmio x505-q898 and hit the power etc However when I left my computer plugged in and running this morning no battery it sat there for a couple hours with no problem I moved it onto my lap and it shut off I m curious to what some possible solutions to this could be It s possible I reassembled it wrong though everything seems to be working all the buttons etc but it seems like something is causing the system to crash and lock out I don t know if its software or hardware related I m considering reinstalling Windows to see if that helps but I wanted to check in first to see if anyone else has a solution without going that far nbsp

A:Issues with Qosmio x505-q898

The motherboard is probably fried from the previous severe over-heating... Did you apply just a very small amount of thermal paste to the heat-sinks? Applying too much can act as a insulator. Were there any thermal pads used? if so, replacing them with paste is not a good move

So I now realized that disabling the Teredo Tunneling service/adapter in Device Manager might have been a bad mistake. Had some scary moments where I was not sure if my computer wasn't accepting the new connection, or my wireless USB adapter was dying.

I enabled 6to4 I believe, and IPv6 through a step I found here:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...nterface/754c8f29-3a87-4e77-babd-a69c8910e17e

Though I'm noticing that the adapter for the Teredo Tunneling Service still says it won't start. (Error 10) and whenever I try to update the drivers it says they are up to date.

So I'm not sure if checking my registry (my current step I am on) will fix the Tunneling service and help stabilize my PCs connection, or if it's going to patch one thing but leave this service dangling by a thread not doing anything.

Any advice and maintenance tips would be very appreciated! Still trying to get this working so I can take some online IT courses.
 

A:IPv6, 6to4, and Other Networking Issues

Update: I followed the rest of the steps and updated the registry to allow IPv6. From there things seemed more stable but when I check the network status after the net going down it says IPv6 doesn't connect. When I tried troubleshooting (the auto troubleshooting function of Win7) I got a BSOD:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

the other photo is blurry, but later I can try and upload a photo via photobucket for anyone to check out. As per a google search on what the BSOD is, I found it stopped 4-5 services and shut down. (really long hex codes.)

one sort of looks like: 0xFFFFF0200220550F, but the quality isn't that great, and I have no idea if that's accurate.

I'll check my dump file I copy-pasted and post later. Any advice and help would be appreciated!

So I have this laptop that had some issue with it's charger and then the charger broke completely and so I bought a new one and recently I can't turn it on my battery run out so I plugged the charger in and the little light that is suposed to go on when it's charging didn't go on and I tried a different charger and the same thing happened and now I don't know if it's a problem with my laptop or with my charger and I wanted to ask you guys here before I did anything else because I don't want to go and have my laptop repaired if I just need to buy a new charger I mean the laptop should be fine it's practically new.. help..
 

A:Charger issues?

When you are talking about the charging light do you mean the one on the laptop or on the charger itself (If it has one)?

If the light is not coming on on the laptop the laptop is not receiving any power, heres a couple things to check:

1: If plugged in and the laptop is on, does the battery indicator say plugged in and charging, plugged in but not charging, or just on battery?

2: Try taking our the battery while plugged in (And the laptop is off) and replace it in side to see if it starts charging.

3: Gently wiggle the connector in the laptop and make sure the plug is tight in the wall socket.

A:"Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password” even with correct credentials

I experienced a similar problem when I was trying to network my 8.1 machine the host network. As you say the host PC can see and connect to all of the machines, but not the other way around. Not sure if it is the same in your situation but I found that Microsoft's idea of network sharing on the Windows 8 class of OS differs greatly from previous OS's in that you can connect to it from an external host, but when trying to do the other way around it doesn't "see" the PC in question due to differing network sharing protocols included in the OS.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I am wrong, I am speaking only from what happened with my network.

A:Video Card Issues- Is mine outdated-What to get

The size of a monitor does not matter to a video card, you can hook up a 60inch TV and it wont make a difference in performance to the machine over a similarly specked 30inch. What matters is the resolution, the higher you go (720->1080->1600->etc) the more demanding it is on your video card. Now in your case that Quadro card is Extremely Low end in this day and age which means its probably struggling to do anything even at 720p resolution. Now while this is a workstation machine, im inclined to ask what else you maybe doing besides watching/streaming HD content. If that is all you want to do, my suggestion would be to grab one of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121800

Its and AMD R7 250, it has a DVI, HDMI, and a VGA on it so you can hook up 2 monitors (I would suggest 1 HDMI and 1 DVI) and it will keep up with your needs just fine. If you intend to do more with your machine than that or want a video card a little bit higher up for possible other tasks, try grabbing one of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150688

Its an AMD R7 260X which is a significant step up for 50 more dollars. But it contains display port and more outputs in general so you can hook up lots of different monitors (Up to 6) on it.

Just my two cents, if you really want a workstation card like a quadro or firepro, let us know what your using it for so we can find a good one for you instead.

Hello. I recently had a mother board go dead on me. I purchased the exact same motherboard I had. the new board is same model, brand and all that, but the overclocking on it is considerably worse for some reason. Any suggestions as to why this might be? as an example my rig is

fx 4100 quad core
radeon 6670 gpu
kingston hyperx 1866 8 gigs ram
ocz vertex 3 ssd
500 gb western digital
asrock 990fx extreme3
corsair 600w gs600

The first 990fx was running stable for quite some time at 4.4 ghz with 1.385 vcore or something close to that. I had pushed up as far as 4.8 stable and decided I didn't like the temps it was running so I backed it back down a bit. This new board cannot hit 4.4 no matter how high I put the vcore. what can I do to figure out what is causing this? thanks.
 

A:Motherboard issues

The answer is in the question - you had a fairly new board die, an Asrock (brand not known for reliability), so you went out and bought another one of the same model as the one that failed, presumably to avoid re-installing Windows due to major hardware change. I don't understand why you'd buy the same model after an early failure, unless you know what caused it (dropped screwdriver, shorted PSU, etc). I would have realized that I took a chance on a cheap brand, rolled the dice and lost, and replaced it with another brand, one of the top 3 (Asus, Gigabyte, MSI). Obviously you were on a tight budget for this build, and I'm impressed that you went with an SSD and fast RAM. If overclocking is important to you (as it should be), return the Extreme3 and get an Asus board for $150 or a Gigabyte for $125. If you get another Extreme3, maybe it will OC good but have other issues, and maybe it will fail again. All mobos are so complicated that designing a reliable one is very difficult, and cheap components almost guarantee failure at some point.

I have a Dell Inspiron 2200 still running XP that has an administrator account, as well as a guest account (where the important docs I need are stored). It has a faulty DC jack, and I plan on having it recycled due to the fact the repair would cost more than the computer is worth. If I remove the hard drive and put it in a USB housing, would I be able to access the info stored under the guest account without any problems?

Hello all I have been playing around with my home network of late and noticed some surprising at least as far as I m concerned results For work I require a hardware VPN so I was using in Change routers bandwidth different with a Sonicwall TZ W as my firewall and a asus rt-n u as a access point because the TZ s wireless is pants With this my peak download rate was Mbps and upload Mbps I then bought a linksys E and flashed it with DD-WRT and used that instead of the Sonicwall as soon as I plugged it in I noticed a Mbps increase in my download rate Upload increase was neglible if any I then decided I wanted to change from having a firewall and AP to a all in one solution since there was no real need to have both so I bought a Asus RT-N U flashed it with DD-WRT Now this router is amazing Change in bandwidth with different routers and I can t rate it enough with DD-WRT it is off the charts Much to my surprise I now had a peak bandwidth of Mbps down and Mbps up which is what my ISP originally quoted me when I got the line The results from the RT-N U you could say is not surprising with it being a far superior router but the E vs a TZ I m confused somebody please enlighten me Oh and the setup on E and the Asus is Change in bandwidth with different routers identical Alastair nbsp

A:Change in bandwidth with different routers

My gut reaction is - - cudos to DD-WRT.
There are three factors for routers (especially when they get real busy):
clock speed of the processor
memory
the code/firmware

It is well known that DD-WRT is very good (read tight/small) and that allows the hardware (cpu + memory) to perform at its best.

As the title suggests- I have issues.. Just moved out to the rural countryside and had to get a satelite setup for internet access. We got the 30GB package and after a WEEK, they claimed we hit our limit. Ok so back in city life we had a 25 Gig package on broadband and never had an issue with three of us on it. I downoaded the Networx bandwidth tracking package and while good it has issues.. so heres my Question: What software package OR hardware device is available out there to track usage for a family of three wireless Inspirons and a lan cabled IBM Business computer? I can't install any software on the business computer so I set mine up to monitor router traffic hoping to capture all traffic - but this only works if my computer is on. Is there an easier way? As I'm not a techie please use very simple words and suggestions. Thanks
 

A:Bandwidth, bandwidth and more bandwidth issues...

Having 30GB a month sounds pretty good to me, my parents live in a rural area and have 5! a month limit. They are through Dish, there aren't a whole lot of sat internet providers in the US, and they are all pretty similar in usages and charges from what I recall. Dish has a way to track your usage on their website, I assume HughesNet, WildBlue, whatever things are calling themselves now (essentially in the US at least, you are going through something that is either those, or is owned by those). So, you should be able to watch your usage in somewhat real time on their website.

If you live outside of the US or have some provider I am unaware of, I would be they also have a website interface that will let you track. The only downside to this is that you have to take their word for your usage, but that is pretty easily determined if you can control your devices for a short period of time and do a download test (grab a linux ISO at 650 megs). It should match up, if not, then you are getting scammed by your ISP and you should google to see if anyone else is having the same issues, this is HIGHLY unlikely though.

Bottom line, you are overthinking it, just use your ISPs counter on their website, if you think their's is wrong, post back with some details on why.

Sometimes my laptop would disconnect from the internet even though its working.
I've tried using the troubleshooter but it would say that the problem is fixed but then it would happen again in the next 10 min or so.
Occasionally while I'm playing a game, my ping would rise up to 400 or more.

This works fine, the Roku connects and can stream easily. Unfortunately, the desktop now seems to have something wrong with it's connection, things like Steam and Teamspeak are fine and stay working, but I can't load any webpages, ping or tracert from cmd.

I figure something might be wrong with the DNS, but resetting all the different components hasn't helped.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hello Everyone !
Right now I am using a broadband connection as my Internet connection and I have a dsl modem which is wi-fi capable. Two of my frnds share the same Internet connection through wi-fi. The problem is whenever any of us watching YouTube videos or downloading something, the whole speed is consumed by that particular computer. I know that many new modems have the capability to limit the bandwidth usage these days but mine is an older one. So I was wondering if there is any way I can limit the bandwidth for each computer.
Thanks !
 

A:How to limit the bandwidth for each computer on a wireless network?

You have to have a modem you can log into an has that type of feature. If you are wired into the network, you should be able to limit the wireless bandwidth and keep your wired bandwidth up. Normally go into the modem, go to setting and wireless setting to limit it.

A:Multiple issues over multiple devices

First. You should try to NOT use a wireless connection for any type of gaming: PC, Mac, Console, etc. If you can hard wire the xbox you'll be waaay better off than using wireless.

Now... Yes, the issues could be related - there maybe an issue with the Belkin N router. I'd try to first reset the Belkin router to default settings, check on manufacturer website for instructions how, most routers you can press a "reset" button w/ a paperclip or ball point pen. Reconfigure the Belkin router, recreate the wireless network and see how everything works. If you are still having issues, humor me and connect the Dell directly to the DSL modem, bypassing Belkin router. See if you still have connection issues, if you do then it could be the DSL modem that is the problem and call your ISP to replace. If you don't have same issues then it's most likely an issue with the Belkin router. Replace it. Don't buy the dirt cheapest router at the store, but you most likely don't need the most expensive one either. Find a good middle ground router, ask sales associate to assist you accordingly.

Post back, Hope this helps!!

My roommate and I use our LAN to network games. It took us a while to set up, but we haven't had any problems for about a year. Today, however, I turned off the wireless to my Mac, and when I turned it back on, our LAN network would no longer work. I think what happened is that the dynamic IP reset to slot 4 (xxx.xxx.2.4). I tried resetting our port-forwarding to slot 4, with no luck. I also tried giving the Mac a static IP (back to slot 2 like it used to be), but the router is still registering it as connecting via slot 4 with a dynamic address, even after restarting the computer. Now I've managed to get it to the point where we can connect manually by entering a port number every time, but I'm hoping I can set my IP back to slot 2 (xxx.xxx.2.2) so it will do this manually. Does anyone know whats going on?
 

A:LAN Issues

Ok, sooo many variables in your question... Answer these questions and I think we can help you further:

What is the make/model of your router?
What is the router's ip addres?? ex: 192.168.1.1
How many computers are connecting to this LAN?
Are the computers all Macs or are some PCs?? What versions of windows or OS X are each running?
Are the computers connecting via wire or wireless?
Is the router configured for DHCP (dynamic)?
Have you already configured ports to be forwarded to certain ip addresses? If so, what ports to what addresses?
You keep referring to "slots", I'm guessing you mean the port of the router, is this correct?
What games are you playing? ex: battelfield, minecraft, etc.

Answer these questions thoroughly and I think we can help you out. Have a good day!!

Hey sethr266, this is probably a lame way to go but it has helped myself in these weird situations. Have you tried Microsoft fix it? If not Google Microsoft fix it audio problems. It may help. Also you can try uninstalling the audio driver in device manager for the onboard audio driver but keep the driver file when it ask. Restart the laptop and let it reinstall itself.

Hi guys, been looking at this site for a while now and ive got a problem of my own so here goes.

Seem to be getting a random error regarding Direct X ( I think ) and my 780

Basically it will sometimes hang mid game for 5 seconds and then recover itself and let me carry on playing.

I get this error while playing BF4





Ive Reinstalled Windows this morning to see if the error persists and it does. Ive got all the latest drivers as well.

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Gtx 780 Issues

Doing a Google Search of the problem, and you are not the only one that is having this problem. From what I've read, somehow the DirectX files that were included with BF4 were corrupted. I could not find a solution so far, but will keep searching. I might suggest uninstalling DirectX, download it directly from the website and then install it from the download. It might work, or it might not work, but it is worth a try.

A:Having Issues with Windows 8

I've notice that with the two systems the run 8. With 7 you don't have this issue. Are you running Homegroup with Workgroup. If you don't need Homegroup disable that feature. Try to use Workgroup. But I must tell you Microsoft has changed the TCP/IP features in 8 where 7 doesn't have certain of the new protocols. I've added that with my JASPER script which I've been testing. That adds one aspect of the missing puzzle. But with 8 there is still some network features that will not be seen by 7 shares or DLNA that works with 7 but won't function with 8.

Hopefully the Windows 8.1 patch or update will fix these issues.

When I lodged a complaint I was assured that I was indeed enjoying a 4 mbps plan and that it was "upto 4 mbps" which means the speed can be as low as 2 mbps
But I have never experienced speeds in excess of 2mbps!!
Is there any way to verify that I am on a 2 mbps bandwidth or a 4 mbps bandwidth?
Thanks

Lookup the manual for that router and find the QoS information.

You can then set the QoS to downgrade streaming video and leave everything else alone. It WILL impact all streaming video however.

What drivers version are you using? Are you using a recent release, or are you using an older version?

Well, I'm on Win/7 Pro 64bit and do not use Homegroup to access my iMac, Win98se file server or 2 variations of Linux.

* 1) of course, all must be in the same WORKGROUP
* 2) XP/Pro SP2 has the LLTP service, but XP/SP1 needs to add it
* 3) There are two forms of sharing:
(a) Public anonymous​(b) Per User Sharing​Normal Simple File sharing will create (B) style and the remote will need the user/password for the directory being accessed.

Style (a) needs a special setup to access \\systemName\PublicShares shown here

However, I use style (b) to control who has access to what - - ie: if they don't know the user/password, then NUTS to them - - I can't trust'm.

I have an Asus P8P67 pro mobo with the Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection network adapter built in. It currently is using ver 11 driver.
I found the latest driver (PROWinx64.exe) to update it (I'm having some issues).
When I try to update it, I get an error box that says:

"The installed version of Intel Proset is not supported for upgrades. You must uninstall it before installing this version".

When I go to Device Manager to uninstall the Gigabit Network Connection in order to install this update...Windows re-installs it before I can run the update. Thus I can't update the driver. How do I stop Windows 7 from automatically updating this driver so that I will have time enough to manually update it with the downloaded newer driver?

I'm Running Windows 7 64bit

Any ideas?
 

A:Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection upgrade issues

Uninstall through Programs and Features in the Control Panel. Uninstalling through the Device Manager is only temporary and does not actually get rid of the driver. Basically, it just disconnects the device from the driver. As you found out it will reinstall itself every time you restart the computer.

Sounds like you're just missing drivers! Have you updated windows completely? This is probably the easiest way to update drivers.

A:New modem / issues with ports

Set your Arris TG862 modem/router to previous mode (routing), keep DHCP server enabled. Disable DHCP server and firewall on your router WRT54GL. Connect the modem(Arris TG862) and router(WRT54GL) with their LAN ports.

In the DHCP settings of your modem/router you should see what LAN IP address range it is using, forward ports accordingly(Virtual server).

i5-3320m CPU (HD4000)
Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN Wireless apapter


 

A:Issues installing WiDi on Dell Latitude E6230

You have to make sure that the WiDi driver is compatible with this laptops hardware. If it is, the internal WiDi adapter may be bad

Hey Guys,

I have laptop that is a few months old, it has a 120GB Intel 520 SDD (boot drive), and a 750HHD.

Windows explorer crashes often, often take a long time to populate items, and notably take a very long time to open something as simple as a photo. Other than that, system performance seems O.K, boot times are very fast. Reason I think it has something to do with the SSD and not my windows installation is due to the fact that before I upgraded to windows 8, I had a similar issue with windows 7, sometimes explorer would be slow and also take a while to populate.

Any help on what could be causing this would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Matt

A:Motherboard/graphics issues

Just as a small update. I've given false info lol. I dont have all the driver's installed and that's because when I try to install it says "Setup cannot continue. Cannot find compatible graphics hardware" it's clearly there and it is getting power because the fan on it is spinning. Such a confusing problem.

A:Single channel to dual channel

That depends on whether or not you have a matching set of dual channel memory installed.

First of all, I'm leaving here are my computer specs: http://i47.tinypic.com/2w6grv9.jpg

It seems everything recent I play lags like hell, specially games like Assassins Creed, where even the cut-scenes are just unwatchable!
Mostly, I would love to be able to play Skyrim and Gw2 decently, without having 5FPS everytime there's fire or smoke.
I would like to know whats my major problem right now. I was about to buy a new Graphics Card, but I just dont know if it would help me at all, im a real dummie when it comes to this stuff.
I appreciate any help in advance
