    Upgrade dilemma

    [H]ello, Looking for some opinions. I've gotten a mixed bag from just searching around. The canned questions don't really apply to my situation. Please move if this is the wrong place. I'm trying to decide if going SLI will improve my gaming or if a sandy bridge build is in order. After...

    Not pulling IP Address

    I'd say either the router has malfunctioned (you could try updating firmware and/or clearing settings back to factory defaults) or there is some broken security software running that's blocking DHCP

    messenger problems....seriously

    If I were to make a list of potential causes for this problem NAT/firewall blocking in the ISP's cable modem would be at the bottom. If you have any security software running try uninstalling it completely. Sometimes a program like Norton will leave behind a networking component that will mess...

    What could be wrong?

    Did you remember to plug in that extra 4pin power connector next to the CPU? Sounds stupid but that's the first thing that popped in my mind when you were describing the problem.

    Not Receiving an IP Address

    This is caused by physical hardware problems. Either the cable, NIC, or port on your router are bad/flaky. To test run a continuous ping. start>run>cmd>ping -t it will ping until you stop it with ctrl+c. That will give you a better picture of your packet loss. Start by...

    Controller issues and Madden '07

    I'm trying to play Madden with a hacked Xbox S controller plugged in via USB. I'm using hte latest driver. Everything works fine until I try to assign an action to the trigger keys (buttons 11 and 12). The game crashes back to desktop. This controller works great for every other game I've tried...

    Cable modem losing connection

    I don't think it would make a difference. I usually stick with Motorola.

    Cable modem losing connection

    Your modem is probably crapping out when transmitting. I would contact comcast for a replacement. You will probably have to pay for it.

    Weird connection issue (Cable modem)

    on-board nics are usually shit and should be disabled in bios in favor of a pci hardware nic. since it's onboard though, the driver will play a huge role in how well it operates. Check your mobo manufacturer's website for updated drivers. don't use the crap that comes in a windows update...

    Software modem or hardware modem?

    A hardware modem with onboard controller and DSP is the way to go. They are usually 50-100 bucks. If you have dial-up it's foolish to NOT invest in a good modem. That would be like trying to drive a Geo Metro through the harshest country terrain with no roads. You'd be better off spending a bit...

    Basic Networking and DSL connection sharing.

    verify the correct ip adddressing is taking place. i believe with ICS, NIC 2 (or the one that's connected to your network) should default to and start assigning addresses via DHCP.On PC2, when you do start>run>ipconfig /all it should return info. you should be on network

    Hello, I'm currently running a proliant 5500 server (quad xeon, 2.6gb of ram, 3 18gb scsi raid 5) and I'm wondering if anyone has successfully installed ubuntu on this hardware. The smartstart cd only supports Redhat 7.0 or SuSE 7.0 or so it says. Will ubuntu even install? I basically...

    brain fart diagnosing connection issue

    Sounds like it might be a botched SP2 install. I would start troubleshooting this by obtaining the latest drivers for the wifi card from the manufacturer's website. There maybe some incompatibilities with the new way SP2 deals with wireless.

    RDP n00b

    I prefer setting up multiple port forwards in the router to the dividual boxes. You need static IP's or dhcp reservations for this to work reliably. Ex. 3392 goes to 3393 goes to 3394 goes to Then if I need to remote into workstation

    Internet Problems Help!!

    most dsl problems are caused by wiring/filter issues. When your DSL stops working does it lose sync? There will usually be a status light on the modem to indicate sync on the phone line side. Try clearing the line of all telephones and phone-like devices. If the modem loses sync try clearing...

    Future proof cabling

    Retrofitting a building does indeed suck. My recommendation is to spend more time worrying about the conduit and access panels instead of what cable you use. Cabling and technology is always changing but the conduit doesn't really move that much. I would just use cat6 because it would be...
