  1. Are you sure that the revving actually comes from the heatsink fan? I also encountered this case and mine actually came from the DVDrom. It had something stuck inside it so it would rev after a couple of minutes or so, resulting to decrease in system resources.
  2. As far as I know, the ISP controllers have no access to your CANOPY web interface whatsoever... Do you keep on changing the downlink/uplink ratio to a higher value, and are you sure that they are changing it back?
  3. As an addition to Coolbuster's post, altering the root account is risky. It could lead to either complete CANOPY shutoff or GUI inaccessibility. Unless you are in a crucial stage and really badly require the alteration of the root user, do not do so. Also, why do you need to keep your radio out from your ISP in the first place? Are you trying to change the access point (color code/base station)? If so, there is no need for what you asked for.
  4. Hi there, Nicholas, I would not advise your firm to acquire a satellite connection as long as there is coverage of DSL or broadband (wireless or not). VSAT costs a lot, normally has below average latency, and is very weather-dependent. First of all, you have to consider the speed. If you are aiming for 4+GBPS connection with VSAT, I would advise you to look at other possibilities such as high-speed E3/T1 connections, fiber optics, or private DSL lines. VSAT (as far as I know) only carries bandwidth of somewhere below 1GBPS. Corporate business firms such as media and telecommunications offices use wired T1 connections. VSAT is very costly, and when there are storms, you will experience VERY LONG downtimes. I have worked for a couple of firms that used VSAT, and both were tolerable. Yes, they work smooth and fast, yes, they can cover even the remotest areas, and yes, they are powerful: but the bottomline is -- unless there is no DSL/Broadband, or unless you are in a very remote area, do not use VSAT. Side note: Where T1 connections would normally require high-speed server racks (takes up a room at the most); VSAT requires a big 14-foot satellite dish to be installed on your company's rooftop, and a huge transceiver deck, a cabinet, and a server rack. Hope it helps, ~Francis
  5. Hey there, Hazuki; You know, based on your situation, I'd bet the problem relies within the winsock configuration of the hosts file, plus the registry settings of your internet connection. I'd share a small freeware program -- here it is: Winsock XP Fix. After you have downloaded Winsock XP Fix, run CCleaner for a few rounds (clean everything, EXCEPT hotfix uninstallers), then run Winsock XP Fix. What does it do? It reverts your internet connection registry settings to the default factory settings -- the ones that are present exactly after computer reformat and system reinstall. It clears out the winsock configuration and HOSTS file with a clean and base code, so that changes that were incorrectly made that might have caused the sudden slowdown are removed. Instead of reformatting quickly, try using Winsock XP Fix first. It could save you a lot of time. Optimal usage: Run CCleaner as described above; Run Winsock XP Fix, again as described; Restart your PC; Boot into safe mode, scan your PC with your antivirus (I recommend AVG or Eset Nod32); Scan with a malware sweeper (preferably MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware / MBAM); Run CCleaner once more; Apply your favorite Cablenut/TCP Optimizer settings, or just leave it as it is. Whenever you think that your internet connection settings are messed up, apply the procedure above. Hope it helps! ~Francis
