  1. Hey all, I'm using a Belkin modem/router to share my adsl line between two desktop pc's. My intention was to run the primary one (my dear mother's) via ethernet cable and mine via wireless (I've been told I can't run cables through the house, doh!). As I barely managed to setup the router using the cable (apparently a common Belkin fault is that the router senses the cable is unplugged, even if it isn't...), we're both running wireless. No issues there then. However, with no ethernet cables attatched in any way the silly thing shows that port 1+2 are in use (green), and occasionally port
  2. The only reason I didn't automatically assume the second set was bad is that on it's own it doesn't have a conflict with the bios, despite suspect running speeds. My friend had suggested that the timing between the chips may be an issue, though I'm not familiar with memory at this level of technicality, more reading is to be done! I had heard the Corsair RAM was of a good quality, which is why I bought that instead of the cheaper branded stuff (I can't afford real high end stuff mind you). I couldn't call Ebuyer yesterday, being a Sunday, but will do today.
  3. Hey all! Not so long ago I purchased a ValueSelect PC3200 DDR400 512MB (double sided) chip, to compliment my existing two 256MB PC3200 DDR400 (single sided). I stupidly did not check my bios after doing this...A couple of weeks later I had a major system crash that wiped out Windows XP and even corrupted the maufacturers recovery partition (that was on the primary HDD as well). I couldn't install XP with the new chip in place, which raised the eyebrows, and led to me eventually realising it had caused the crash. When I installed XP I tempted fate and put the new chip back in, and checked
  4. Hey Bookworm1x! If it's not an ISP problem but something on your end, the guys and girls on this forum are awesome with helping out, you're in the right place! Try running a tracert to this address (Start > Run > type 'command' > in the black command terminal that appears type 'tracert testmy.net' > copy and paste the results into a new post). That'll give the peeps here an idea of where your data stream is going.
  5. Thanks for the advice! However, Everything in that department is ok, all is routed as well isolated as it can be. Plus it's exactly as it was when I was running a true 2Mb/s originally.
  6. Just got off the phone with Ukonline, they got me to run the line providers test (British Telecom) which came up with the same (slow) results. Despite me paying for a half hour phone call something has at least been looked at, but it's now in BT's hands as it's their hardware and not UKonline's. If anyone in the UK is using a Broadband connection that runs through a BT line, these login details will get you to their line speed tester if it's any use: Username: [email protected]_domain Password: dsl URL: http://speedtester.bt.com If however anyone still has suggestions

  10. Sorry man, it's still blank; opening from location and saving to disk the same...Strangely though, the VanBuren one I had previously used is doing the same thing, so I think it's my end. I've restarted a few times to no avail...this is weird...
  11. Sorry Trogers, but that file comes up with all the fields blank?
  12. Hey all! Appreciate all the help I'm getting, but I still have a problem...I applied the 2000/256 Cablenut settings, and I've run some speed tests from that link: http://www.numion.com/YourSpeed3/ShowMeasurement.php?ID=47,578,231 Speed Test (Results) Loaded 2,031K bytes in 26.672 seconds.

  14. Hey all! Changed my ISP to Ukonline a while ago, and all was fine for a while. It's a 2000/256 connection. However, after a major issue my motherboard had with my new RAM (a Corsair 512MB PC3200 chip) and a bad XP crash I had to re-install from a formatted HDD. Now everything is back up and running I'm having trouble...

  16. Hey all! I'm having trouble with my isdn connection. I'm running a Voyager 105 USB (I know, I'm changing to ethernet router soon!) on a 2.6GHZ 256MB RAM 60GB HDD Compaq system. I've got a 2mb/s down 256kb/s up ukonline adsl broadband connection. It's taking ages to load web pages, and website download rates also seem to be low (P2P/torrents aren't too bad, though not as good as I'd expect). I've tried all the usual; Adaware, Spybot S+D, AVG, Norton, RegSupreme. Tried the standard high speed adsl tweak on cablenut also, but that didn't really do anything. PleasePleasePlease could someone
  17. Hey all, I'm a bit of an adsl hardware noob, so have a question about extending the line between the adsl modem and the wall socket. I've always understood that the shorter the cable, the faster the data transfer. Then I thought about it. If the signals travelled hundreds of miles to the servive station, then a fair way to my street, then into my house through god only knows what grade cable, does the last few feet really matter? If so, how? I only ask 'cause I was going to buy a 'high speed' broadband cable today (until I sort my network out and get a combined modem/router) then though
  18. Hey all! I've recently rediscovered my old P2 laptop, and have decided it would be put to good use as a hardware firewall for my new desktop. I've read some guides and advice, but it all seems to concern a system connected to the internet using network cards. At the mo I'm using a Speedtouch 330 USB modem to get my DSL connection. Is there still a way to use SmoothWall etc if the connection is: Phone Socket>ADSL Filter>Modem>Firewall computer (connected by USB)>Desktop (connected by conventional network cards). Any help would be really appreciated. I'm a noob to netw
  19. When I get Mandrake or similar on a partition I'll investigate (as far as my ability allows!), and post back. Could be interesting to see how it compares to Windows. Peace
  20. Hey Microwave! Definately will, this is the best tech site I've ever seen, and noob friendly too! Thanks for the feedback! Peace
  21. Hey all! I was thinking back to my time using various Linux os' last year, and remembered they allowed a higher download speed than XP Pro did at the time. I know many people put Windows down as a memory hogging sack of the proverbial, but would an OS make that much difference to internet speed? I eventually went back to Windows cause i was in the middle of exams etc, and needed an OS I was familiar with (though it was fun learning command lines-you can learn so much about how an OS works just by telling it where to install Java, lol!). I'll probably put in a Linux partition on my H
  22. hey, Isn't SP2 kinda necassary if you're using XP? Or do the mods it makes slow it down? Peace
  23. Thanks for all that, I'll get onto the SOB's straight away! Appreciate all the work VanBuren. Peace.
