  1. Ok here goes. I am travelling into extremely uncharted waters here. I want to start providing wifi access to local rv parks how many customers/users can I possibly put onto each respective pipe before you notice a massive slowdown. I know all of the big ISP's oversell and I am just looking to find out what is a good ration. I also know that not every subscriber will be on at the same time and not all of them will be fully using each connection. my prices quotes I have are for the following pipes 10Mbps 20 Mbps 30 Mbps 45 Mbps and 100Mbps all fiber dedicated internet access . I plan on throttling each customer to around 1000 Kbps or about 1 Mbps both up and down. So there is my problem any suggestions besides run its not worth the headache?
  2. Yea as far as I know you could just put the extra SATA drive in and run the installer. If you put the drive in and Vista will not play nice best thing you can do install them seperately. I wasnt really paying attention when i said label the drive cables i just put that in there if you had the same type of drives and same sizes since you have 2 different sizes you should be able in the bios to tell which drive to boot to first. like i said in my earlier post it makes it easier if you install on each drive seperately then copy the boot.ini file just my other .02
  3. Ok here is my .02 Swimmer posted a great tutorial on how to dual boot xp and suse linux on the same hard drive. Me I never liked splitting up my drives so i have XP Pro on 2x200 GB Maxtors in Raid 0 and Vista Ultimate on a 250 GB Western Digital after hours of searching and trying here is what I did 1 install vista on your 160 but make sure the other drive is not plugged in 2 shutdown and switch your 120 to master 3 if you already have xp on the drive and its the same motherboard you should be fine if no you will have to repair windows 4 with xp and vista installed on your seperate drives and your pc shut down make your vista drive the master and the xp drive the slave (be careful if you are using SATA drives label the cables sounds stupid but it worked for me) 5 boot into vista 6 copy the boot.ini file from your windows xp drive to the root of your vista drive 7 download easyBCD http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 8 use easyBCD to configure your boot sequence cause vista doesnt use a boot.ini file 9 reboot and try it if this helped thank Swimmer
  4. rushonbye is right 10 MB at 10 Mbps would take roughly 10 seconds. and it also depends on the computers you are transfering from and to. if one is a superfast monster and the other is a P.O.S. that could add transfer time as well. just my .02
  5. Not to step on toes but I Read that question differentlyfrom what I read and correct me if I am wrong was you are trying to transfer faster from PC to PC Right ? Not over the net but over your Home Network A 10 Mbps Hub will only transfer at 10 Mbps 20 if it is in full duplex mode A 100 Mbps Hub will only transfer at 100 Mbps 200 if it is in full duplex mode Gigabit is 1000 Mbps as far as i know you cant make a 10 Mbps Hub faster than 10 Mbps so my suggestion is to buy a gigabit switch 27.00 (newegg.com) and depending on your network cards in your computers a couple of Gigabit Ethernet Cards 7.99 (newegg.com)
  6. I also use rr but im on a different server try news-server.kc.rr.com and see if that helps until Totally Whiny Cable figures out the problem
  7. you could try downloading the newest drivers for your card and hope that it suports it i tried that today and it worked nicely
  8. Hello all . Quick ? for you massive brains out there. Why do I get 14.81 Mbps when I am downloading from usenet servers, but I only get arount 12 when i do a speed test here?
  9. I hate AOL as much as the next guy but I promise to try and help and not AOL bash. First is the router setup for DHCP? Second unplug the ethernet cable and as silly as it sounds make sure that the WIFI adapter is on on the laptop. Third from the desktop turn off all encryption WEP WPA etc from within the router (for Now we will turn them on later ) and make sure your SSID is visible Fourth make sure that there is not MAC address filtering enabled on the router Fifth restart the computer Sixth scan for wireless networks and try to connect to yours If you connect try step 7 Seventh disable the wired Ethernet adapter this will make certain that AOL tries to use the WIFI Eighth Have AOL rescan for available ways to connect it should pick up that you have broadband I hope this helps if not PM me and Ill do my best I have a dual boot lappy with Vista and XP and ill install aol to help if i have to it needs a format anyway
  10. jamaicarocks , glad it helped let me know if you need more brock01, i think you are right with your assumption about bad memory. I have had that happen to me numerous times when formatting and reinstalling. I would be working on 2 separate computers with 2 copies of the same disc one would give me errors. What I do usually is if there are 2 sticks i pluck out one and install it after windows is done usually works but if its for a customer i recommend getting new ram
  11. jamaicarocks Most likely there is a SATA drive in that laptop so you will need to integrate the drivers into your xp install cd i use a program called nlite to do this its free and you can make the disc unattended as well as add things like IE7 and all of the updates to make your life after install easier you also need to worry about finding xp drivers for all of the hardware most of your major players are only supporting vista on their new laptops so getting the drivers from the website is almost a no go unless you are lucky. i have done the remove vista dance a few times myself and its a pain in the neck but its worth it although I am currently running vista ultimate in a dual boot config (using swimmers most helpful tutorial on dual booting linux and xp) main this is have a working computer near you which im sure you already know just in case you have problems finding drivers my suggestion would be to try and find your driver for xp first then integrate them into your install cd so as not to have to hunt for them later
  12. Well here in Yuma AZ aka. Hell's armpit the fastest thing we have is as advertised 8000/512. But they are upgrading the network so we can have digital phone woo hooo. Try as I might even with a business class package they offer no speeds above 8Mbps down and the fastest up (for a small fortune of 500 a month ) is 2Mbps but here are my speeds :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 7286 Kbps about 7.29 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 889 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 486 Kbps about 0.5 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB) Upload Speed is:: 59 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2007/06/03 - 6:05am D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-E7GDNJ62C U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-5OGB4MU68 User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1) [!]
  13. what part of the country are you in cuz out here the Road Runner is on crutches
  14. D-Link has a good high gain antenna for around 50-60 dollars with the connector base and all its a pretty good setup i am using one for a wireless security cam on the edge of a property and it works nicely of course i also used the dd-wrt firmware for my linksys router Edit: i was wrong circuitcity.com http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/D-Link-Omni-Directional-Indoor-Antenna-ANT24-0700/sem/rpsm/oid/134925/catOid/-12980/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do 39.99
  15. Thanks Swimmer what are the chances of finding a tutorial on it?
