  1. Also the distance from your router and how many objects between you and it will factor into the speed. For example (these are not real numbers, they're just for illustration), Let's say I'm 20 feet from my router. On AC, I'll get 800 Mbps but put 2 walls between me and the router at the same distance and my speed is now reduced to 400 Mbps due to signal attenuation.
  2. My guess is they're doing packet shaping.
  3. Yes, as nickel blocks are nickel plated copper.

    WPA2 has been cracked

    So I feel I must correct a misconception that I've seen circulating the internet regarding this. This is a vulnerability in the implementation of WPA2 by various manufacturers, not the WPA2 protocol itself. Practically, yes everything still needs to be patched but the implications of the two are vastly different. The first can be fixed by software updates whereas the latter cannot and requires a new protocol. I've spent most of this morning reading the paper and various vendor product advisories so to summarize the details of this attack: 1) Exploits a Key Reinstallation attack through one of several vectors (4-way handshake, Group Key Exchange, or 802.11r [Fast BSS Transition]) 2) Requires a Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attack 3) Both client and AP/infrastructure are affected and both must be patched to fully mitigate this exploit 4) Affects both WPA2-PSK and WPA2-Enterprise as the vulnerability exists in the implementation of the protocol, not the authentication method 5) Most vendors have already issued patches for this vulnerability as they have known about it for months.

    Help Me please !!

    Is this inside the case or outside? If you haven't already assemble the system outside the case and see if you can get it to post. If you can, you're likely shorting something when you installed it into the case.Possibly a pin on the back of the board making contact with the MB tray or if you're running cables behind the board pinching a cable.
  6. It's a bug that has been pretty inconsistent between versions. Try a different version and it will go away eventually.
  7. So this isn't a huge deal but I figured I'd ask and see if anyone else has encountered this. I have two monitors, one in a portrait orientation, and I have different wallpapers on each monitor. I've noticed that every time I update my GPU drivers, the wallpaper on my secondary screen resets to the one on my primary. Has anyone seen this before?
  8. I think I remember seeing the video from CES. Wish it had a 1440p option or 4k option but still pretty cool.

    PC Won't turn on

    You didn't say that in your earlier post. Sorry if I seem quick to pounce. I work in corporate IT as a network admin and had a pretty stressful week with stuff.

    PC Won't turn on

    Clearing the CMOS would only possibly help if the system wasn't passing post. It's not even attempting to power on.

    PC Won't turn on

    Already did. According to him, nothing. He was watching Netflix the other day, turned the machine off and left to go do something else, came back and the machine wouldn't power on. I already recommended he RMA it, which sucks because he'll probably have to wait till Tuesday to get a reply because Memorial Day. I figured I'd throw it out here and see if anyone can think of something I might have missed in the meantime.

    PC Won't turn on

    Most PSUs these days auto detect the input voltage so flipping a switch is no longer necessary on these models. It's an EVGA supernova btw.

    PC Won't turn on

    That was one of the first things I did. I've been building computers for over 8 years, I know how to short the power switch pins.

    PC Won't turn on

    Guys, I'm troubleshooting a friend's PC and it's not turning on. He's rather bummed because I just helped him build this about a month ago. I've checked the PSU with a PSU tester and got correct voltage out of it. Unplugged everything from the board but the ATX and CPU power and nothing. I think the motherboard died. It's a Gigabyte G1 Sniper B7. Any other suggestions?

    Cherry MX Blue vs Cherry MX Brown

    I haven't noticed inconsistency with my keyboards with browns but then again, I haven't really been looking for that so I can't say for certain. I'd also recommend taking a look at MX Clears if you think 45cN is too light.
