I have a Dell Inspiron E1705. For some odd reason, my computer will freeze sometime while my wireless radio is on, while I'm at my apartment. I have already ruled out a power, memory, or overheating issue. I reformatted and reinstalled XP, yet it still did it. If I disable the radio, my computer doesn't freeze. Also, it doesn't automatically freeze up as soon as I turn on the radio or connect to my network. Sometimes, it may last for awhile, while other times it may only take a minute or two. Just FYI, I am on the wireless network …

Hello guys, we all have read about HTTP, TCP/IP and all kinds of protocols OSI model. My genuine question is whether a protocol is hardware or it is a software or combination of both ? Your views are valuable. Thanks.

Hello, On my workplace in last 5 days there is some block when I open youtube.com or facebook.com. It looks like this: http://postimage.org/image/w01p35hif/ on **every** video I open. I don't use facebook so that is not big loss for me;) but I would like to know how can I "skip" this blockade because I need access to youtube. Many thanks in advance for prompt replies! Adi

Hi Guys. I knw what I want to achieve but not how to achieve it! Any hints would be gratefuly received, or, if it's not possible, tell me so I can stop trying. I have an internet connection -> router with NAT, DHCP etc -> LAN with all kinds of switches and WiFi access points all on the same subnet. I have a couple of TV devices that need to access the LAN and also access the internet via a VPN for access to the right countries. So I connected a VPN router to the LAN and the TV devices …

I have a router in one room of my house and wires running through the house into my bedroom where it's connected to a switch that further connected to several different computers in my room. What I am wanting to know is how the traffic flows from one computer to another. If computer A sends computer B a file does the data travel from A, to the switch, and then to B? Or does the traffic from A to B travel through the switch and all the way to the router and back before going to it's inteded destination computer …

So I have a little vague question and I don't know what to even google to get right answer. I am trying to setup email client on friend's computer remotely. I tried outlook, native windows 10 client and thunderbird, they all fail to connect server in anyway with all settings. While when I try any client on my PC, just basic settings like mail server, id, password work fine and after that I am able to retrieve configuration data. So what could be causing this behavior? Any steps to fix this or troubleshoot? Any help will be great. Thank you.

I've had this networking problem for a while and it's interfearing with another networking problem. I can share a folder on Computer(A) running Windows10 and have Computer(B) running Windows10 access the shared folder; although I can't share a folder on Computer(B) and have Computer(A) access the shared folder, or any shared folder for that matter ? I read it may have to do with DHCP although that at this point is speculation and I don't want to tinker with something just to spin another problem.

If all computers are on a network sharing the same network name. The only group or userName I can assign to the network is; everyone. How can I give each computer it's own unique name that is only specific within the Share permissions for a Group or Username ?

Most of us know how Symbolic links work, they point to another file or folder on the system. Symbolic links don't work with network folders. You can create a symbolic link on a networked folder to point to a local drive. The result is you point the local folder to the network drive, instead of the other way around. I'm looking for a similar method that works, the other way around ?

Hello Daniweb Community, Lately we have been experiencing slow internet, now the thing is. In the house we have **12 devices** connected, then from the router it goes out to the bungalow which has around **5-7 devices**. The router we have in the house is a TP-Link Archer D50 and in the bungalow is a TP-Link Archer C2 and we have **ADSL2+** (on the [Optus](http://www.optus.com.au) network). The maxium speed we were told we're getting is around **6-7Mbps/Download** and around **500-600Kbps/Upload**. The other problem we are having is, my sister can't even get a good connection on her PS4 (can't even …

I have a home lab I am trying to configure multiple subnets on and use Routing and Remote Access LAN Routing to get everything talking. I have two hosts w/ 5 physical NICS running Hyper-V. I have the NICS configured on each host so they each are in a different subnet. Example Host 1 NIC 1 10.10.10.1 Host 2 NIC 1 10.10.10.2 Host 1 NIC 2 10.10.20.1 Host 2 NIC 2 10.10.20.2.

I'm having issues with my TrendMicro anti-virus software where my disk activity hits 100% for 10-15 minute periods randomly throughout the day. TM tech support has made a few suggestions but in order to track their effectiveness I have to monitor my disk activity in such a way that I can keep a log. Task Manager and PerfMon will show the activity but not keep a log. While there are free apps available I am reluctant to run any of them without a recommendation from a trusted source. Any takers?

Each years our computers are getting faster, games more demanding, which fuels better computers. We develop more memory in lesser spaces. We develop processors that calculate more than super-computers 20 years back. We had 56k modems, 1M, 2M, 5M networking, just recently there is possibility to get 1.5G at your doorstep, with record of 70G+ Everything moves on-ward, but what about **latency**? The speed at which TCP/UDP package can be delivered? Is that improved since "back then"? I can't see anything on the internet, so I'm wondering, since you guys have been here longer than I am.

Hello Daniweb Community, I'm wanting to know if anyone has an idea on how to distribute wifi throughout a motel? The idea I got is kind of simple but the thing is how do I set certain bandwidth of guests/rooms? so when a guest checks in they are given like 1GB for example then when they use it they can purchase more then the manager just adds in however much they pay for. My idea was just adding users however what routers can I use? Here is my plan: ![Motel.png](/attachments/large/3/61f88438e93033f9ce4bd4008fe5434c.png "align-left")

My idea was to some how run the ether from the house to outside then dig a trench from the house to the bungalow run the ethernet throught a PVC pipe (not sure if it's worth it, only thinking for better protection) and lay it in the trench a bury it then find a way to feed it into the bungalow.

Good Morning, As this is a homework question, I'm hoping for some guidance in the correct direction or a website. I was given an IPv6 address and I need to find the EUI portion of the address. And EUI is just the first 24 bits of a MAC address with the seventh bit flipped, followed by FFFE (16 bits), and the last 24 bits of the MAC address. Naturally, if you see FFFE in the address anywhere, it's an EUI address. These are the IPv6 addresses: 2005:007D:4500:000C:0000:0010:11D8:6E71 2005:007D:4500:000C:0000:0002:4A5C:E1C9 The prefix is 2005:7D:4500:C::/64 FFFE isn't in either of them. Did I …

Good Afternoon, I've been studying communications between switches and it seems relativly easy to understand with the exception of why they have so many modes. There's trunk, nonegotiate, dynamic desirable, dynamic auto, and access. (I think that's all of them). In addition to this, some switches can choose between dot1q or ISL encapsulation. So what's the purpose of all the different modes? If the port is a trunk, set it as a trunk. If the port is access, set it to access. Is there benefits to using dynamic desirable or dynamic auto?

Good Evening, I just can't seem to wrap my head around this IP addressing. Lets say I want to use 192.168.1.0 default gateway. Then Router IP Address = 192.168.1.0 Lets say my subnet mask is 255.255.255.224 = 32 IP addresses and 30 hosts. That makes my first line out g0/0 from the router to switch1 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.224 That gives me a network address of 192.168.1.1 Host range of 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.31 A broadcast address of 192.168.1.32 Lets make G0/1 from router to switch2 ip address 192.168.1.33 255.255.255.224 That gives me a network address of 192.168.1.33 a host range …

Good Evening, I hope everyone is doing well this evening. Regarding the subject of subnetting in a LAN, please bear with me as I try to quantify the question in which I have. While the question did spawn from a homework assignment that I am attempting to complete for a project, it's not really the project per se but more of a query which spawned from the creation of a small network LAN diagram that I created which consists of a router, two switches, and two work stations for the assignment. Assuming that the subnet on the router is 255.255.255.0, …

OK, this is specifically regarding Cisco Catalyst 2900s, 4500s, and 6500s. I've always matched my interface VLANs to my VLANs. Lets say I have VLAN 10 on a 2900, and all hosts on it have IP addresses on 192.168.10.0/24. I'd create a VLAN 10 on my 4500 and an Interface VLAN 10 on my 4500, and put my gateway 192.168.10.1 (or whatever) on Interface VLAN 10. Between my 2900 and 4500, i'd trunk VLAN 10 and others. Then all hosts on 192.168.10.0/24 would be able to get to 192.168.10.1 as their gateway. I just looked at a config for a …

I just added a generic 4 port wired hub to a linksys router. I can access the router configuration pages through the hub, but no internet access through the wired connection. Wireless works fine, and hub is obviously connecting to the router. I've done this on my own network many times without any issues, but this problem has me stumped. Any suggestions?

The only solution is though SSH & delete the folders but keep the files that are hidden in these folders ? There are some solutions that I've found in my searches, I've been cautious as to if my data in the folders will be deleted.

I was informed not to use HomeGroups, instead use regular Networking ! I've given all computers the same workgroup name as was suggested instead of using Homegroups, specifically a Windows7 computer can see the shared folders on a Windows8.1 computer, but the Window8.1 computer can't see the folders on the Windows7 computer ? Aswell the Windows8.1 computer (client) can't access the NAS, but the Windows7 computer (host) can. If I try to map a NAS as a network drive on the Windows8.1 computer, I get this error; the NAS has it's own unique IP and is connected, **not to a …

Hello Daniweb Community, I have recently been thinking about switching from a Wi-Fi connection to a direct connection over ethernet, however when I tried an ethernet connection from my router to my PS4, I calculated the average download speed after about 5 Wi-Fi connection tests and 5 ethernet connection tests and it averaged around the same. So there was no major difference, so what benefits would I have with a ethernet connection?
