    Any FON users on here?

    Hi! Does anybody on here have any experience with the FON WiFi community? I'm thinking about joining, because the possibility of having free WiFi in many places over the world sounds very interesting. You get a special WiFi router for cheap which enables you to share (and limit) your broadband...

    Weird Network/Internet Issue

    Alright guys, I ran out of ideas and maybe you can help me out. Here's the deal: We have a Router in our basement and from there Ethernet cables go to every room. This worked fine for quite some time, over 1 year with this particular router alone. About two weeks ago we started having problems...

    So I'm actually on a plane right now...

    ...34000 feet above Canada, on my way to LAX. This is just so cool. In the past you were completely isolated whilst on a plane and now, here I am surfing the web, chatting over ICQ etc. It could be a little faster to be honest, but at least the prices are pretty reasonable. You can book 1...

    NAS HDD + USB-Hub?

    Hi guys! Thinking about getting a NAS HDD to use as a backup and print server. To be precise, I'm thinking about getting one of those Western Digital Netcenter ones, probably the 250 GB model. This is a general question though, as I'm not sure yet which one to get. Most of the NAS HDDs have 2...

    Which Access Point to buy? EDIT:Question about setting it up

    Hi! I'm looking into WiFi, or Wireless LAN, Access Points. We already have a WiFi-capable router, but unfortunately it's sitting in our basement, because that's where all the network cables start. Because of this, there's only a very (!) weak signal on the 1st floor and no reception whatsoever...

    Seriously contemplating going back to IE...

    Hi! I switched to firefox several months ago. Worked flawlessly then, but since a couple of weeks I'm having problems. Firefox frequently freezes and/or crashes. Sometimes it won't let me type into search fields etc. on websites but instead opens it's own "search bar" at the bottom of the...

    DVD/CD-Writer issues

    Controller stopped working because of Daemon Tools??

    Hi! Here's my problem: I've got a new laptop since a couple of weeks and now I'd like to play NFS Most Wanted on it, because the laptop is faster than my old desktop pc. This afternoon I tried if my controller will work with the laptop and it did. It looks like a PS2 controller, my dad bought...

    Usenet: good, affordable newsserver with unlimited download?

    Hi! Today I tried out Usenet using my ISP's server. Although I'm using the biggest ISP in Germany there are only shitty groups. Almost no binaries and the binaries it has are crappy. :x Also found a public server which had the good groups but unfortunately it was awfully slow. :( I don't...
