    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    How likely is it that these workarounds will still work at launch, cause instability problems or problems with future updates? It would be nice if it worked without any problems or better yet Microsoft listen to people like they did with the xbox one launch and lower the requirements.

    Port forwarding problem, i'm stuck

    Comcast fixed the internet and then I bricked the R7000 router trying to load tomato on it. I ended up getting the Asus RT-AC5300 from Micro center,this one https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/RT-AC5300/ I hope this setup is stable. Router seams to work well with extender so far.

    I did a little more research and I need a business account to use that modem with 2 ip addresses so I can't do that. To make things worse my modem is throwing a lot of errors. Anyone know what these mean? Bad connection in line somewhere?

    Port forwarding problem, i'm stuck

    I hate to replace the router because it's been rock solid with extender. DD-WRT or other routers I have are unstable with connection and extender. They need to be rebooted after power outage or internet outage where the r7000 would come back online on its own.

    Port forwarding problem, i'm stuck

    I don't know how to access the vpn software but I may have just ruled that out. I just brought the computer downstairs and plugged it directly into the modem and it was able to connect so there must be a router setting that I am missing. I made a post on the Netgear forum. Hopefully someone...

    Boot drive too small for large amount or ram?

    Thanks for reply. I read that 48 GB works in x58 and patriot even gave me a part number of a 8gb stick that should be compatible. I'm still looking into it. I may just get 3 8gb sticks and see how that goes.

    Connecting pc to tv through vga black screen.

    Change resolution in windows or on tv settings? I'll give it a try in windows but the bios splash screen doesn't show. I tried all the menu settings on the tv. I think the only option was to change from widescreen.
