  1. Hello all, Been quite a long time since I've posted on here. Hope everyone is doing well! I figured what better place to turn to than the knowledgeable users of testmy.net?! I'm in a networking class and one of our homework problems has me stumped. I understand the general concept of subnetting but I am struggling with this. I get /16 translates to a subnet mask of (/16 in CIDR) I also understand we're subnetting the whole third octet but this part confused me as we shouldn't need the WHOLE third octet subnetted if we've only got 3 networks with 5 hosts per? The problem is below. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I have quite a few more similar problems to work through. P.S if this is the wrong section I apologize A router at your main company location is connected to your provider and 3 internal locations. The network address from your provider is Each location has a maximum of 5 nodes Assume you are using the entire byte 3 for subnets A. What are the 1st 3 and last 3 possible subnets to the three locations? B. Assume you have decided to use the 1st 3 subnets B1. what are the 1st and last 4 host addresses on each subnet? B2. what is the broadcast address on each subnet? C. What is the new subnet mask?
  2. Been a real long time since I posted here, how's everyone doing? =] I been looking to get a new graphics card for my system I recently built. Pretty much built a gaming computer without a graphics card (as I ran out of $$$) Haven't really kept up with the current hardware and wasn't sure which manufacturer to go with. NVIDIA / ATI ?! Not looking to spend too much, probably 150ish maybe 200 if I have to. Thanks in advance for the help !
  3. Yeah it was definitely a great feeling having it boot up and realize everything is working properly. thanks a lot, guys.
  4. Update: Got all of my parts except for the new graphics card I want ( saving up some more money) Everything is running extremely well and I couldn't be more happy
  5. yeah that's what I'm gonna go with, 2x (4 gig). I wasn't even aware that the forums changed recently as this topic was my first post in months. I like the new look, though!
  6. yeah I've been a neurotic lately trying to figure out what I want to do with this build. and thanks man I've been away from TMN for a while now, it's about time I come back. It seems like there aren't as many users on as there used to be, are the boards starting to slow down?
  7. I plan on going past 8 gigs eventually so I figure I'll plan ahead by getting the 4 gig sticks so when I do want to go to 12 or even 16 i'll have the spare slots on my MOBO. As for now, I plan on getting the parts listed above in my links and running that for a week or two before I get some more cash. I'll then buy another 4 gig stick and an improved PSU. But for now I'm gonna run the 1 4 gig stick and get everything settled.
  8. I was thinking about just getting two of those 4 gig sticks, how do you think that would work? also will this psu work with everything for the time being? Edit: last link didnt work http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152028 that's the one I have.
  9. Hello everyone, haven't been on here in a while but I figured I'd post here as I trust the opinions of the TMN members. I'm building a new computer, I already have the case and powersupply. The case is an ATX Rosewill coolermaster and the PSU is a 530 watt (should handle my pc for now). I'm going to order the rest of the parts I need tonight and I wanted to see what you guys thought about the parts I chose. I'll provide the links below. Thanks a lot! MOBO : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131646 CPU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 MEM : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820139046 there's what I plan on ordering for now. As stated above I already have a case, PSU, HDD, and a dvd-rom drive until I decide to upgrade the rest of it.
  10. wellll my 6 year old HP is getting a little sluggish and I figure I'll finally take the leap and upgrade. I'm planning on building a pretty powerful system that can handle anything I want to do with it. So far I have the case the mobo and the processor. Any thoughts or suggestions on the parts I've selected already and parts I should select when I advance and buy more pieces? case : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146026 combo deal with mobo and CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.404661 thanks a lot in advance
  11. nah this is just my desktop, I've updated my bios but I cant find drivers for my MOBO. bleh this sucks haha.
  12. 7? if you mean windows 7 then nah I'm on XP and yeah ive tried getting drivers but i cant find anything relevant.
  13. nah its not that, I have two different hub's and neither of them are working at 2.0 speeds thanks tho.
  14. I'm not sure when this started happening but lately my usb 2.0 ports aren't working as fast as they should be. When I try to sync my iphone it literally takes hours for me to get all of my music on the phone, and it never took that long. I frequently get a pop up notification when i plug the phone in saying "the ports aren't working as fast as they should be 2.0 isnt working" or something to that effect. any help would be greatly appreciated. - Ryan
  15. I ended up buying two pairs of http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/products/product_details.asp?item_id=112885 quite happy with the purchase. Install was easy, but required some extra drilling because the guy at best buy was an idiot -.-
