    Transfer speeds between computers over network limited to 10mbps?

    We just moved into a new apartment, and although this issue has been present for a while, it's starting to become more annoying and noticeable. The network looks like this: Internet -> WRT54G running Tomato (I know this is only 10/100) WRT54G goes to: a PS3, a Windows 7 Machine, and...

    Software to monitor a folder, backup, then delete?

    Is there such a software that will allow the monitoring of a folder to not only backup, but also delete the data? For example, if I was to have a netbook, and it has the built-in card adapter for my camera, I can just copy all the files over to the netbook in a specific folder (ie, ::Temp...

    Any disadvantage to using ONE stick of 2x2 set instead of one stick just 2gb?

    Okay, so I picked up a 1000HE asus netbook. By the way, the thing is amazing :) Cute little netbook for school and just porting around some random emus for when I get bored. And it can run windows 95 games! (Nostalgia ftw) Anyway, I am wondering. I want to purchase a 2gb stick of RAM for...

    Best OS/Software solution for a Media Server

    And what I'm referring to here is slightly different than what I think the general conception of a media server is. What I have: 2 Xbox 360s, 1 PS3, 3 different rooms, all connected via router. In addition to this, I have two desktops, three laptops connected on this same network. In...

    OS Drive for Windows Home Server

    Does it really need to be 80gb minimum, 300gb recommended? I have a 32gig raptor that I recently acquired for quite a cheap price ($20), just because someone I know was trying to get rid of some PC parts. Good deal or no, I'm currently using two computers as follows: I have my main...

    Use onboard HD 3200 or 9600GSO?

    Just like the title says, I'm building a small server-like computer that's going to be acting as a media center for my PC's/360/PS3. It has an onboard HD 3200 with HDMI out, but I also have a 9600GSO dual slot edition laying around not really doing anything. Would it be worth it to pop in the...

    Creating conditional drop-down lists for a website.

    Is there a way to create a conditional drop-down list. For example, let's say we're building a computer. First they choose a type of processor...if it's a socket LGA 775, then the motherboard will automatically narrow to only LGA 775 boards, but if they want a socket 939, it will only...

    Installed new fans - now comp won't boot.

    Okay, well, I just ordered quite a few (9) fans to replace all the ones in my case. Sure, it's excessive, that mattered not to me. So I booted down my fully functioning computer, starting taking it apart, undid all the power connectors, decided I would do some cable management while I was at...

    Advantage to seperating power supply + Airflow questions

    I've been thinking for a while about computers. Sounds dumb, but it's true. I don't really *use* my rig anymore except for folding because I kind of got burnt out of computer gaming due to the massive amount of botting/hacking that I always end up doing. So I've moved into console gaming, but...

    Dell Precision M60 won't turn on (doesn't even boot)

    My step-mother received a laptop from her work, and never really used it. She showed it to me, and the last time I came home, I used it for a little while. The thing is quite nice, good battery life, etc, etc, just got very warm. I used it for the weekend, and the night before I left, I left...

    Daily/Monthly cost of PC?

    Does anyone know or have any figures/charts as to the daily or monthly cost of a PC? I know those little kill-a-watt things are around, I just couldn't find any number-related facts. Just writing a report, and figured it might be neat to throw in there. If anyone has any data related to it...

    Readyboost-Yes, I searched. For a system with 4 gigs ram

    I've read on many websites, checked wikipedia, checked benchmarking, searched TPU. I may be blind, but I saw nothing on the performance gains of using, say, a 4 gig readyboost drive on a system with 4 gigs of, say, 4-4-4-12 RAM. So, I'm installing X64 vista on my computer tomorrow, my specs...

    Razer Diamondback problems with mousebindings.

    Okay, well, I got a razer diamondback about two months ago. Love the thing, it's amazing. I used the mousebindings to set certain clicks to certain keys, of course. For example, let's say the mouse4 binding is "7". Well, I could open up notepad, and press mouse4 all I wanted to, and it would...

    MyBook crapped out - couple questions.

    Well, before we get into how important it is to BACKUP your files, I'm going to go ahead and preface this by saying this WAS my backup. I have a 500gig MyBook WD5000KS, and it's 97% full. Some of the data I have in various places, some I don't have anymore. Namely, some of my mother's files...

    Intel v AMD for the money concern for building new computer.

    Okay, well, the story is, I need a dedicated machine for running 3 copies of World of Warcraft at or above 25 fps at the same time. I was looking at the AMD dual cores, because they have gotten SO cheap. But, my thing is, I don't really know how far I need to go into performance to remain as...

    How to keep the dust level down?
