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? I use my PS4 to listen to [Spotify](http://spotify.com) and sometimes it will drop or lag a bit, as well as when I have more than one person on …

Hi, I just reloaded my Dell desktop (formatted the hard drive) and now I cannot connect to the internet. I looked in Device Manager and there are no question marks or exclamation points. I am receiving packets (looked at the properties of my connection), but I cannot ping www.google.com via cmd window. I also tried right clicking on my connection and then clicking Properties and clicked Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and selected the Microsoft v 6 (or something like that). When I click on Properties on TCPIP now, I have the settings as Obtain IP Address AUtomatically and Automatic private ip …

I am creating a network bridge that connects two ethernet cards on the same machine. One of the cards is connected to the LAN and the other is connected to a network device. It looks something like this, [Click Here](http://i.stack.imgur.com/BcoQI.png) I am sniffing packets on both the interfaces and then sending them to the other using sendp(x,iface='eth0') for a packet that I sniffed on eth1 and vice versa. I verified the packets at both the interfaces and found them to be correct, but somehow I am unable to get an IP for the device. Below is a piece of my …

Hello! So I just installed Ubuntu Server 12.04 on my machine. I have the web server and SSH server working, you can acces both from the internet. However, every time I attempt to run update or upgrade commands from SSH, it fails to do so, resulting in a similar error as when you try to update/upgrade while not connected to the internet. It is connected to the internet though because I can access the site from the web and I can connect to the SSH server. I looked at the sources.list file and it is as it should be. I …

So I'm starting up a render farm for UDK and After Effects, and I have about 8 computers at the moment. One of them is a Dell Dimension 2350, and I cannot get the Ethernet to work on it. I've installed this driver: [url]http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&docid=DSN_D4A6B1A87E7D2BBBE030A68F27285798&isLegacy=true[/url] Didn't work. I've installed this one: [url]http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R56237&SystemID=DIM_PNT_CEL_2350&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=4316&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=5&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=5&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=66981[/url] And that didn't work aswell, they are both listed as being for the Dimensions 2350. I've also installed the Intel 845GL chipset driver before the ethernet ones. Here are the specs for the PC: [url]http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/SYSTEMS/dim2350/specs.htm#1101572[/url] If anyone has any light to shed, please help. Thanks :)

Hi, I have the new Xbox S, and I am using the built in wireless to play online. When connected I usually have fine connection however my connection often drops out on my Xbox. The problem I believe is the connection between my Xbox and the router as they are on opposite sides of my house. According to Halo my upstream bandwidth is also bad but packet loss is excellent. Anyway, my question. Would using a powerline adapter increase the speed and general reliability/stability of my connection to my Xbox? or is there another underlying issue with my connection Wired …

Hey all, I just did a fresh install of 7 on my pc and I'm having a couple of issues: 1) my ethernet port it not recognizing the dsl line running into it. What I have done thus far is uninstall the sis-900 ethernet adapater from device manager. Installed fresh drivers from the microsoft software catalogue and still nothing. There are no flashing lights on the port either. I have though managed to get the pc hooked up to the net by isntalling a wireless usb adapter, and I have done all of the necessary update from microsoft. I wouldn't …

This is a problem i had started having about a week ago. No new software has been installed or deleted. My router status light usually blinks and the net stays connected for about 10-15 mins before it gets frozen on either light on or off and the net gets disconnected. This takes place only when the ethernet wire is connected to the laptop ( Dell N4010 ) otherwise the light keeps blinking away merrily. The laptop is about a month old and internet worked fine for quite some time. If i switch the router off and on it again stays …

Wireless is, without doubt, a really great thing. Apart from when it doesn't work that is. If you live in a big old house, for example, then getting your WiFi signal to extend through a few thick walls from one end of the place to the other is not always easy. And before you utter the magic words 'repeater hub' I throw back the 'not always easy' incantation in your direction. I know all about the fun you can have with a less than optimal wireless signal, especially if you throw a few kids and an Xbox into the equation: …

Hi, My laptop was working perfectly fine with internet. I would connect wirelessly with no issue. One day my laptop stop working with wireless. It said local only. I didn't worry, i had fixed this issue before by adding the IP, DNS, and Gateway manually. This time when i added it, it still said local only. Then i couldn't even open up firefox. I went to go plug in ethernet. When i did, the lights went on, i turned off wireless, and it still said local only. It used to always work before but now it doesn't work at all! …

Hello, To be honest, I know about the very least possible about computer hardware and software. So please indicate me specificly what to do if some things get more techninal in this post. I have formatted my system from Windows Vista into Windows XP Pro. Since I haven't backed up any drivers I had before the formatting, now I am missing drivers for certain devices in my system. I was thinking if I had internet on my machine, I could use a program that automatically detects the devices that happen to have missing or outdated drivers and indicate me exactly …

i need to make a program that would basically monitor the raw data from the firewire port on my pc, encode it to ethernet protocol, and send to mac. and on the mac create a virtual firewire mounting point and interpret data back to firewire, i would imagine this would be possible. i only need this to run the fw400 so the cat5 would have 2 "pins" extra, i don't see how this would be impossible with an interpreter on both ends PC is 2.53 c2duo 4gbram running Linux mint and windows 7 Mac is Imac intel 2.4 4gbram running …

The Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers ([URL="http://www.ieee.org"]IEEE[/URL]) has started work on WiFi the next generation. While that news in itself might not exactly rock your socks off, the small matter of a big speed increase might. Word is that WiFi TNG could be fast, very fast indeed. Anyone fancy some 1 gigabit per second wireless networking? Of course, there are a couple of caveats for the average consumer that need to be thrown in the mix here: firstly any WiFi standard upgrade is at least a year or two away yet, and secondly just because your WiFi network will …

Hi All, Usually able to deal with PC monsters but this one has me all but beat. It's a Dell Inspiron 1525 for a colleague with 32bit Vista on it, SP1 only (SP2 wouldn't install but after a lot of online searching and trying various fixes, I decided it's the least of my worries). As the subject says, the machine can't get on to the internet via a cable or wireless signal, just gets that useless 169.254.x.x private IP address. The user says that problem started after uninstalling Norton (not sure what variant), can find out if crucial. So anyways …
