  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 -.-
  16. thinking about just getting some new speakers, since that's mainly my problem. I figure there's no sense in spending ridiculous amounts of money on a stereo system when I don't really care that much about KICKING bass. I just like a nice crisp sounding system. speakers first, possibly deck later on down the road. Thanks for the help guys
  17. I think i'm on the same package, or one similar. it's actually really nice. :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 12797 Kbps about 12.8 Mbps (tested with 25600 kB) Download Speed is:: 1562 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 2898 Kbps about 2.9 Mbps (tested with 5983 kB) Upload Speed is:: 354 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Main) Test Time:: 2009/07/02 - 8:52pm D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-U3LZ0NG8H U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-ZP73IE9F0 User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5 [!]
  18. I've been using 3.5 since last night, I notice a much smoother experience while surfing! firefox
  19. I'm looking to buy a new stereo system for my car, and I'm not too sure what I need to buy in order to have a decently kicking system. I'm only looking to spend about $300 max. I need the radio itself (cd changer/ deck whatever you wanna call it) 2-4 speakers, depending on whether or not I should replace my back speakers too, and possibly a sub? Anyone know stuff about car audio? suggestions? It'd be appreciated if you could pick me out a system from bestbuy.com or newegg.com. thanks a lot in advance!
  20. It's a Love hate relationship. It's good that I worry so much because it keeps me out of trouble. I guess it's more so knowing Right from Wrong than worrying. I'm the one among the group of friends that keeps them out of trouble and holds them back if they're about to do something stupid.
  21. Easier said than done for me, I'm totally anti confrontation and the thought of any type of it makes me nervous. Lmao I think I have problems.
  22. I gave the box and everything with the phone as I wanted the buyer to be fully satisfied that it is an authentic iphone 3g and not a fake imposter. I also figured it would insure I'm the original owner if I provide the box. He hasn't emailed me back, I'm hoping it's over and he doesn't bother me anymore. As for posting my information anywhere, I don't think he has because no new google results have popped up when I search my info. I'm a nervous kid by nature and I worry about everything. I'll probably worry about this for the next few weeks. People are terrible :/
  23. Thanks a lot for the help everyone, I'm still nervous but not nearly as much as I was before posting here.
  24. he claims he told me there was dirt over the water indicator and when he got home he cleared it off and saw water damage. He never said anything about dirt, he inspected it, paid me, and we left. Now he emails me saying My information is going to be all over the internet with a "fraud" warning. I told him I'm sorry he feels I wronged him in some way but I sold him a working phone at a comparably cheap price. He owns the site XXXXXXXX>XXXX and since he has my phone number and the knowledge of phones I'm affraid he can do something. I'm considering changing my number. just my luck, things can never just go smoothly. ugh. Removed link
  25. yeah.. I mean the only way for the phone to have damage is for it to be submerged in water and I've never had that happen. The guy has my phone number and my full name but that's about it. I wont have a phone until friday when the new iphone comes out, but if he calls after then I'll explain the phone had no damage upon the sale and I can not refund his money. can never be a nice easy sale. gahh.
