Correctly Networking My Classroom

Q: Correctly Networking My Classroom

I've networked (Workgroup) 18 student computers and 1 teacher computer via a 24 port ethernet switch (No internet connection). The only problem I'm experiencing so far is that only 14 of the student computers can access the shared folder on the teacher computer at one time. Is this the limit of a workgroup? Can I wire the room differently to get better results? Thanks.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm working at a school with win 2k3 server and several win xp client computers.

I just moved two computers into a clasroom and put in a 5 port Linksys switch between the ethernet jack and the machines. All the wires are connected.

These machines have automatic IP and DNS settings. Nothing was changed on the server.

I tried powering off the switch and restarting the machines but I can't get any connection.

I tried manually setting the IP and DNS with no success. Still can't ping anything..

Please help

I have a dilema.

My wife needs the capability to play DVDs in a Classroom setting. The equipment MUST be portable

I already have a laptop w/DVD and an Epson PowerLite S5 LCD portable projector.

The real problem is LACK of Audio. The laptop just does NOT have a large enough amplifier to fill the classroom.

What are my options here ????

I am the IT administrator for a private college. I am looking to add a feature to the teacher's workstation so that with a few commands or perhaps a desktop icon, she can blank the screens of the machines in her classroom. All machines are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. The effect I'm looking for is similar to creating a desktop shortcut to "C:\Windows\System32\scrnsave.scr"... Basically, it is just so that she can get the attention of the class, as sometimes the computer screens can distract the students during a lecture. Is there a software program or tweak that I can use to implement this?

I have been tasked with facilitating the set-up of a wireless network within a classroom that will access files from a teacher computer (no internet is available to us whatsoever). The main objective will be to access a Learning Management System called Moodle with a total of 30 laptops. What would be the easiest and cheapest way to accomplish this? I will purchase a 'mobile computing lab' (30 laptops in a movable cabinet), but have no idea how to approach the networking issue. Thanks in advance.

A:Wireless Classroom Network (no internet)

I would start with a wireless router and two wireless access points. Arrange to have the teacher computer connected by ethernet. Use channels 1, 6 and 11 and assign ten student laptops to use each. If the congestion on each wireless portion of the network is too great you'll have to add access points and hope that you can avoid wireless interference.

This is my suggestion as somebody with home network experience only. Perhaps my experience and knowledge does not scale up well. Surely there are similar networks--30 wireless computers in one room--already in existence.

I'm a teacher who wants to be able to run some typing software in my classroom. The trick is I want to be able to run it off of one computer so no matter what computer the students go to they will be able to continue with their account. I'm not exactly sure what I need to do in order to set this up. Since I'm a teacher I'm looking for the cheapest and easiest way to do this. All the computers have windows XP professional on them and I have a router and a switch. I also have a wireless hub with 4 ports on it to connect some of my computers. Can anybody help me out? Thanks.

A:setting up a network/server in my classroom

This will only work if the application itself is a client server application meant to be run from a server. You could set it up on a server and run a terminal server like Terminal Services in Windows or Citrix. Neither of them is free however.

Ensure you get a set which include the amplifier and supports the type of input that you will be using from your laptop. Most speaker systems contain the speakers only, and not the amplifier.

Hi everyone, Not exactly sure if this is the right place to put this, but I am looking to get input from IT Administrators at Schools and Universities on how you set up Windows 8.1 (or 10 for that mater) in your computer labs and classrooms.   What
I am looking for is how you configured the OS, GPO's you use.  Also are there any other sites that are dedicated for this?  Reason I am asking is I am coming up against a deadline. 
Here is my current setup:
Windows 7 x64 SP1 
Using MDT to build one gigantic Image-yes I am getting away from this
Using MDT and SCCM to deploy the image.  
Some GPOs in place already to mange things.

Ok, just upgraded to Windows 10 this week and been bashing my head bloody for two days on networking issues. What on the green Earth are my networking credentials in Win10? I have a Microsoft account I'm logging into Win10 pc with (which I hate but besides the point), everything is asking me for credentials, and I put in the email address and password I log into Windows with and it doesn't work. I have a network with a workgroup and homegroup set up, and my Win7 pc and Win8 pc have no problems talking to each other but My Win10 can't access the win7 pc, though it accesses the Win8 pc just fine. I also can't access a WDMyCloud on my network, it keeps asking me for Windows credentials and nothing I put in works, it does not like the email address/pass I use to log in to Windows 10 either. I'm literally stumped. Can someone help me out?

Specifically: Toshiba SP2100 with D-Link AirPlus G+ wireless PCMCIA cards.

After trying many, many things:

- Boot SP2100 from XP CD (SP2)
- Don't fix any of the driver issues
- Plug wireless card in
- Cancel plug&play
- Install correct driver with d/loaded Setup_v204.exe
- WZC managing wireless connection
- Sees wireless network (WEP) but
- Won't connect automatically (after setup wizard)
- Won't connect manually
BUT ..
- Boot into "safe mode with networking" and wireless works faultlessly

I've got to be missing something really simple.
Please, please can anyone tell me what it is ?

ASUS m2n68 Socket AM2+ (940)
Radeon 5850 Sapphire 1gb ddr5
4x DDR2 pc8500 1066

Thanks in advance

A:is my ram set up correctly?

The two Mushkin sticks are 1GB sticks, several sites confirm this such as this one:
So the 6GB total is correct. The memory may have been sold as a 2GB kit, meaning each stick is 1GB.

You're also running the memory at 333Mhz, or 667Mhz effective rather than the 533Mhz/1066Mhz its capable of. But according to the Asus specs you can only run 1066Mhz with two sticks in dual channel mode, thats due to the AM2 processor design. You might be able to achieve 400/800Mhz using all four sticks if you change the memory settings in the BIOS, but that would be a small gains anyway.

Hello kgmoney21 and Welcome to TSF.

PLEASE do not create multiple threads! Keep all of your posts to one thread. An analyst will get to your log as soon as possible. Also, please curb your language. Thank You.

As for the analyzer not working, if it can't find the log then you probably don't have it in the same place as Hijack This. Follow these instructions and see if it will work. It it does, then you may post the result.txt file in the SAME THREAD as you posted your original Hijack This log.

Once you have saved a log file (after doing a scan in Hijack This), download and run KRC HijackThis Analyzer in the same folder to get the result.txt log.

A:am i doing it correctly?

Set the textbox's MultiLine Property to true.

I won't do your homework for you, but I will offer a little constructive criticism.

How about assigning the spell check result to a variable.

Then using Select Case to assign the Grade to the label. It will save you a lot of typing.
look at this:
ElseIf Mcheck.SpellEssay(txtText.Text) < 3 And Mcheck.SpellEssay(txtText.Text) > 10 Then
Click to expand...

How can a number be less than 3 and greater than 10 at the same time?

Now have a look at this:


Dim P as Integer


Label1.Caption "" 

If  And Val(Text1.Text) < 10 Then  

.Caption " Not Bad"

ElseIf Val(Text1.Text) < 20 Then

.Caption "Oops" 

End If

Type 10 into the textbox and press the command button. See what the caption reads.

You have already concluded that the number is greater 9 in the previous line or the result would already be in the Label and the conditional statement would have ceased.

Now let's try Select Case:


Dim P As Integer


Select Case P

Case Is <= 3

I am running Windows XP Professional, and after installing new RAM recently I encountered a problem. I found out it was because I had the wrong memory module for my motherboard. Now I have the correct memory module installed, but XP won't boot. I get through the BIOS screen, and then I get a screen that asks if I want to load the OS in Safe Mode, Last Known Good Settings, or Load Windows Normally. None of the options work - any one I choose gives me a blank screen with a white bar on the bottom, or sometimes just a blank screen. I disconnected all peripherals and left just the monitor and keyboard attached. I've heard that I can try to reboot the OS from a CD, but I don't want to do that unless I have to. I also don't want to mess with the BIOS too much as that seems to be OK. What should I do next?

A:XP won't boot correctly

do a repair
set the comp. to boot from cd first in the bios
pop in the xp cd and reboot
choose install
ignore the first repair option and continue with install
when windows finds the previous installation
then choose repair
you will have to reload sp1 and any ms updates and probably your video drivers

I had a PC with Vista on it, but wanted XP so I put the XP CD in and had it set to boot. It brought me to the partitions on my PC so I deleted all the partitions and chose which Hard Drive to install to. It formated the drive and installed XP. After the installation it told em to restart the PC and setup would continue so I restarted only to have it return to the same menu it did when i first went to install it. I restarted and told it to boot from the hard drive and when it does it says something along the lines of a Hard Drive problem. What should I do?

A:XP won't install correctly.

Start over and try it again. If you do get some kind of error message, post back here with the specific error info you receive..

  My company recently started using Office 365 for e-mail provider. Unfortunately the IT person spelled my display name wrong. When I brought it to his attention, I was told "no big deal, you can just go into your account and edit your display name yourself". Not only is he an idiot, but he is also ill-informed. After going thru the maze, which is Office 365 help instructions, I surmised that everything except display name and job title can be edited. Both these items are set by administration, and cannot be changed by user.
I have administrative priveliges on my computer, I woulod  be indebted to someone who could provide me with a walkthrough on how to edit my display name for my Office 365 e-mail account.Thanking you in advance.

Hi first thing to check - is the Ram [memory]
Turn the computer off and disconnect it from the power
Take off the side of the case and touch the bare metal chassis to discharge static.
Remove Ram from their slots

Plug in the RAM [one stick at a time].
Also try different slots.
Ensure it is seated correctly.

While you are doing that..
Reseat Video card.
Check Hard drive and Motherboard connections [IDE]
Take them off and reseat them.

She's running Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180 on Windows XP

Web pages never load properly. Often there are buttons missing, the text doesn't fit on the page, is too large, etc

Her ISP suggested removing the firewall which seemed odd. I tried it to no avail.

Using my computer on her ADSL connection everything is fine.

Hi blast00,

In addition to the troubleshooting steps you have done, also empty out the temp files folder. I would NOT run a registry cleaner because the program can delete registry keys that relates to a program(s) and then all of a sudden, some of your programs will not run right anymore.

Also, perform a "Check Disk Repair" on the computer and see if that helps. Hope everything works out for you.

After I installed Win10 my laptop won't start completely unless I remove the power and battery, then reconnect them. If I don't do that, the laptop gets stuck at the HP logo before the Windows boot.

What happens is on startup it gets all the way to the "Welcome" screen, then the display goes black. The mouse pointer (arrow) is visible and moves with the mouse, but there's no taskbar at the bottom. CTRL+ALT+DEL works correctly so I go there and try to start explorer.exe, but no luck.

I recently messed up my PC, sent it to a shop for repairs and got back a fresh working Windows XP. I also used Norton Ghost to backup my HDD, since I messed up my PC for around 10 times and hope I would not do it again. My question is: Did I backup my entire HDD correctly? I asked the guy at the shop and he said reinstalling would require activation, which is a troublesome process, and I deleted my partition(OOPS.) So immediately upon switching on, I installed Ghost and did a backup so as to just use this image to restore back afresh if anything goes wrong.Edit: I also would like to ask if there is any way to burn this image to disc, since I get errors when trying to burn this data to disc or save it to an external HDD.

If I click on favorites, and select a site nothing happens. When I select tools only options available are compatibility, file and safety. I am unable to successfully restore to any point. I have done a WebRoot virus scan showing no problems. I tried msconfig disabling all save MS to no effect. Is there anything I can do short of re-installing Windows.
Thank you.

A:IE 11 not opening correctly

I believe this is because IE 11 was really designed for windows 8 and its tiled layout; which is probably the reason it wont open correctly. To fix this you may have to use the windows 7 disc if you have one available; and use that to do a system repair by starting windows via the disc.

But recently all of my games that once worked, are now crashing, in a sense. some games, like dawn of war, let me go to the main menu but when i click start a game, the screen either go's black or flashes colors, the sound works just fine. this makes me leave the game, although my system is running smoothly. some games just start black but the sound works. ALL of my games are doing this, and i have no idea why. has my video card died? do i need to add more RAM? HELP!!!

i took my computer tower in to get it physically cleaned. Turned it on after and now I am shown the automatic repair screen. It never had a problem before. I have tried the system restore and the start up repair options. Both did not work.
What happened to my computer?! Please help!

Hi all I have a very interesting issue with my Win Ultimate x machine I've been reading LAN Not Connecting Correctly through a bunch of posts both here and over LAN Not Connecting Correctly at the MS TechNet forums but none of them are quite the same as my issue I'm hoping somebody else might have a few ideas I haven't tried To outline my problem if I start up my computer with the network adapter enabled I cannot connect to any network whether auto-assign IP or not I have tried ipconfig flushdns followed by ipconfig release and ipconfig renew without any success This is where it gets interesting though to connect here at work I first need to disable my Marvell Yukon adapter restart my computer enable the adapter and then run the Network Diagnostics before it will connect I tested it just now to confirm I left it trying to connect on it's own for about minutes and got nothing I ran the Network Diagnostics and it suddenly connects and tells me it can't find a problem I have tried all this with the IPv protocol bot enabled and disabled and it seems to give me less trouble with IPv disabled but the problem persists both ways Anybody got a few ideas on what I can check regarding this I'm out of ideas now

A:LAN Not Connecting Correctly

I just realised there was one thing I hadn't tried: I switched from the Marvell drivers to the Microsoft drivers and restarted now, I can connect if my adapter is enabled when I start up my PC, but I still need to run the network diagnostics before it will connect... And then of course, it doesn't find any problems.

Any ideas...?

I am running XP pro SP Xp Anything Correctly Saving Pro Not on my computer at home It does not save things appropriately For instance if I attempt to rename a folder it only stays renamed until I turn off my computer after restarting it reverts to the old name Also in programs like winamp if I make a playlist save it close the program and turn off my computer the playlist is not stored in winamp as it should be except some of the time it does The playlist file Xp Pro Not Saving Anything Correctly is correctly saved so if I open the playlist everything is Xp Pro Not Saving Anything Correctly there that should be For example if I load my blues playlist and turn off restart the computer when open winamp again there is no playlist loaded At some random point in time it does save the playlist so everytime I open it the blues playlist is there If I add a new CD to the playlist and save it the next time I turn on the computer the new songs are not in playlist displayed but if I load the blues playlist they are there Except sometimes the songs are saved correctly I have the same problem attempting to switch to my classical playlist Open winamp blues is there remove blues and classical classical stays until I turn off the computer then blues is back Again except sometimes It seems as though my computer is not fully saving changes new saves and deletions are handled correctly though Any suggestions questions welcome PS I cannot update to SP My MOBO is an asus a v and the mobo cannot handle SP

Seems to me that you have cited instances of a WinAmp problem, not an O/S problem.

Uninstall, then reinstall the application.

I am trying to use my Razer Kraken Pro headset on my windows 10. When I try to talk, my voice sounds messed up and sometimes sounds like I'm speaking a different language(the audio works perfectly fine).

My new GTX 770 crashes when I'm starting a game. I think that the GTX 770 isn't receiving enough power as it should.

I got a new CX750M, there are two PCI-E slots in the power supply, I used only one slot (6+2pin & 6+2pin) to connect the GPU. Is this correct?

My GTX 770 came with a Dual 6-Pin PCI Express to 8-Pin PCI Express Power Adapter. Do I have to use this power cable to connect to the second slot in the power supply? I have tried this already but the GTX 770 crashes when starting a game.

Im thinking the GTX 770 isn't getting enough power? The CX750M has 62amps on the rail

A:How to correctly connect the GPU via PSU?

Power must be supplied to both connectors on the GTX 770. As long as you connect the 6+2pin & 6+2pin connectors from the CM750M to the GTX 770 you should be good.

Do you have the latest drivers installed?

So I just built a new pc and I was installing Windows 7, but I did not realize that my product key was only for upgrading, therefore the product key kept failing. So I took my Windows XP disc and tried to install that but my pc would not boot from the CD-rom, it just kept going to the Windows 7 setup. So after trying to boot from the cd-rom without success, I just tried going through the Windows 7 setup menu to see if I could do anything. When it came to entering the product key, I just hit enter and it went past that. Now I'm at the Windows 7 desktop but I'm not sure if it was done correctly. I didn't want to connect online and risk having my key invalidated. Not too sure what to do now. BTW, I'm on a laptop right now.

This has been going on for MANY months. I have to reboot my machine whem I want to read new media correctly. A fellow on one of the help forums said my machine was not refreshing the drives but the guy never said how i Could do that. Any one know.? I'm thinking of buying a new motherbd combo to solve that but I can't make up my mind whether I should Go back to Pentiums or stick with AMD. I never had this Kind of trouble when I had Pentiums. Any advice?

and welcome to the Forum

I would download Belarc Advisor and save the report along with your files. It will report the details of hardware and software ( with product keys ) for use after you reinstall.

If you have the Dell System restore ( not all Dells do ) you can use that and you will not need a install CD

If not, You can get a reinstallation guide specific to your Dell here

You can request a replacement instalation cd [URL=""] here[

A:DVD-rom not working correctly

Try a different DVD. The drive may need replacing.

Does it say "DVD-ROM" on the faceplate?
Relevancy 30.53%

Now i'll just start off to say i'm not too experienced with burning and what "DVD-RAM" is but everytime i burn something on to a CD-RW disk, it will register on my laptop but not anything else except for the DVD Player (Which is WMA compatible).

Could it have anything to do with DVD compatible devices or any settings i made like Multi-Session's disk or what? And also something worth noting is that i'm using Nero to burn.

A:DVD Ram not burning correctly

If the disc hasn't been finalised then other devices will have problems. What devices by the way?
Also device compatibility with CDRW (re-writable) discs is far less than with CDR discs. If you want to play the disc away from the computer then you'll have far better results over all with CDR discs.
DVD RAM is a type of DVD disc. It isn't relevant to this particular problem from what you've said so far but with DVD's it gets worse. There are about 7 different kinds of them and that's not including the 8cm variety. They're not as complicated as it sounds though, just, ish . . .. . well maybe a bit. They're all round at least.
If you want help with Nero give us a shout as it's the one I use.

Appreciate some help.

Have a 4.3GB Hard Drive (Maxtor), which was used as NTFS previously.

Did a Fdisk, deleted the Non-DOS partition, formatted, and thought all was fine. Well….

In My Computer, it showed up as having all of 7MB!!

Using Fdisk, now the drive shows up as Disk #2, 4120MB, 4120 Free, 0% Usage.

In the BIOS (Compaq), under IDE Devices, the Cylinders, Heads and Sectors are not showing. Do not see a way to change these values in this BIOS.

Any ideas on how to get the drive to show up as a 4.3GB?

Thanks for the help.

My USB drivers are showing up as fine, but certain devices wont work. My wife got a "Elmo knows your name" doll and the USB functionality on that doesnt work, and this is the second doll we've gotten. My webcam also stopped working with AOL. We could use video chat for a couple weeks, then it stopped working. The thing is though, my digital camera hooks up and uploads pictures just fine. The elmo doll loads up to like 95% then has an error. The elmo tech support couldnt help.
Also, my graphire drawing tablet works fine.

Hello Fett and Welcome to TSF,

Have you tried to either update the drivers or uninstall and reinstall the USB devices?
Also have you got any driver CD's with these items? If so, try reinstalling the drivers with the manufacturer's CD that came with them.

Give it a got and post back.
