    AT&T And Verizon Defend Data Caps

    There is a cap but it's so high that you'll have to try and get on their radar before they contact you. I believe it's 10 Terabytes and up per month for several months before Verizon will send you a letter asking you to stop or face disconnection for violation of TOS.

    Intel NIC driver optimization?

    Set Interrupt Moderation to High to gain a little more throughput. It should be in 'Advanced' or 'Performance Options' depending on your Intel NIC model.

    Looking for a 32GB (4x8GB) 1.5v kit. Don't bother suggesting Corsair

    I've been using the G.skill Ares Quad-channel 4x8gb 1866 F3-1866C10Q-32GAB kit for several months now in a workstation with high utilization on a 3930K. I've lowered the speed to 1600 and dropped timings to 9-9-9-24 at stock 1.5v and it's been serving my needs beautifully. I did a 36 hour...

    pfSense 2.0 since release update and appreciation thread

    Is the State table manually adjustable? Or does it automatically adjust based on the amount of installed RAM? I'm running something that steadily runs in the hundreds of thousands of connection states and this is the only concern I have before upgrading to 2.0 from 1.2.3. Anyone running 2.0...

    I'm pulling 20 megaBYTES per second with WNDR4000N

    Ditto. The Asus is supposed to have a whole gig of memory which should support a huge NAT table = no more rebooting because torrents/steam server list has crashed your router ;)

    Pay More To Reach Download Cap Even Faster

    I did ~15TB last month on an ISP that believes spending billions on upgrading their network is worth it. Comcast can go diaf.

    With ATT getting ready to add data caps..

    Right on. It will break down traffic per download and upload amounts by every 4,16, 48 hours, 1 month and 6 months. There is also an option to view traffic per machine if you need to see who is using the most bandwidth in the house. Visual:

    New Headphones - Static/noise when connected to my PC

    I've got a pair of AudioTechnica ATH-A500s with the same case. I get the same low static noise from the front audio port but nothing from the rear port. I'm guessing it's the motherboard or powersupply transmitting interference across the unshielded front port cable(s). I use the rear port but...

    Anyone using SmoothWall, m0n0wall or pfsense here?

    I'm using pfSense on a dedicated rig(2.5ghz dualcore, 4 gigs ram, 40gig HD) and its configurability(is that a word?) is great :) I researched all the various routing solutions and decided on pfSense and glad I did.

    pfSense and Wireless Adapter

    I can release my IP and get a new one after waiting a few minutes. However, successfully pulling an IP from Verizon only works if the router(pfsense or verizon issue) has the original MAC from the router you had when you first subscribed. The default pfSense MAC is refused an IP by Verizon. This...

    Is FiOS better than Comcast?

    I've had Verizon FIOS for over 2 years and usually go through a terabyte of data every 48-72 hours. Not a single complaint all this time :)

    pfSense and Wireless Adapter

    I'm using pfSense with Verizon FIOS on a 50/20 line perfectly fine. Have you tried spoofing the MAC address from your Verizon-issued router? I had to do that in order to get pfSense to cooperate.

    New 5850 - strange bfbc2 issue

    I forgot where I read it but supposedly there's a possibility that when using multiple oc'ing tools(afterburner, ati tools, etc.) simultaneously the game stutters. I wish I could remember where I read it so I could link it here.
