  1. As title says, I'm but a rookie when it comes to networking, so let me sum this up: A Zyxel VMG8324-B10A router provides civilization and freedom to my home, with a tiny bit of 35mbps connection. 3 Gaming computers are hooked up to the ethernet ports of the router. Various wireless devices are connected to the router. Sometimes, guests connect to my network, jump to YouTube, and put on a 1080p video, watching it from a 5" screen, which ultimately results in my network bandwith getting sucked, my ping getting high, and my gaming / watching experience ruined. What I want to do is: Prioritize Ethernet traffic over any WLAN traffic. Limit WLAN Bandwith Prioritize certain WLAN devices over any other WLAN device, if possible. Router supports basic QoS as far as I can see. And dd-wrt doesnt have my router supported--but then, I wouldnt be able to go through all the settings with my tiny knowledge even if it did. Long story short, if it's not too much of a hassle, could I get some help accomplishing said goals? All these settings are default
  2. As title says, I have evaluated a few candidates within the same price range. Current contestants are: Logitech G231 Prodigy - I like the folding mic on this one Steelseries Siberia 200 White - Looks elegant Bloody G501 Radar360 7.1 - Matches with the rest of the peripherals HP Omen 800 Coolermaster MasterPulse Bass FX - Looks fine MSI DS501 Sennheiser HD 205 Platronics Rig 400 Stereo Plantronics Rig 500HX (XboxOne?) - Looks extremely attractive || 500E version not avaliable Plantronics Rig 505 Lava ThermalTake TteSports Shock - I wanted to get this for a while now Could you help me choose? I would make a call but I either heard or read something bad about my go-to's so I can't really make a conclusion, and I don't know much about specs so I can't decide that way either. It will be used for gaming and everyday use, on my Laptop, which has a sound card compatible with SoundBlaster Cinema 3 software. So yeah, I'm clueless, help.
  3. Help me choose an entry level Gaming Headset

    Sadly, HyperX Cloud Core is not among the discounts currently and SHP9500 for some reason, is equal to $178 (680₺ or so) for whatever reason, so sadly they are not an option. G231 looks charming but what about the Rig 400 and the Siberia 200? Bouncing between these 3 currently
  4. Help me choose an entry level Gaming Headset

    Uhm...good for you, I guess?? How does this help?
  5. As title says, managed damage my wall somehow when I'm doing cleaning, my landlord kinda minds this type of things, is there a way that I can repair this with household items? I'ld look up the net but I don't even know what kind of "wall" it is, so. Any help is appreciated
  6. Much thanks for all the help!
  7. Network Adapter, Built in or External

    Sadly the reouters they use do not support Ethernet connections, crazy, right?
  8. So, imagine this scenario, you're in college, you brought your laptop with you to game, except, there's one problem, you're limited to the internet connection that your university is providing you. On such network, speeds are limited to 5mbps per persona. If this was the case, would you use your laptop's built in Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 to connect to the said network or an external USB adapter, an AirtTies 2310, that can support higher dB output? The building is fairly old and even tho the Wireless-AC 8265 is faster in theory(>800mbps) whilst the 2310 can only support up to 150mbps, I think the higher dB output on the external adapter will yield better connection quality? Network is a derivate of eduroam, I believe it is international. The protocols are EAP/PAP - TTLS. Which one would you use, the Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 or the AirTies 2310?
  9. Hello everyone About a week ago I bought a Monster gaming notebook, the full specs are as follows: Intel Core i7 7700HQ 2.8-3.8 Ghz 6MB Nvdia GTX1050 4Gb 128B DX12 8 Gb DDR4 2133mhz SODIMM with a 1TB Seagate ST1000LM048 HDD SATA-3 7mm 128MB currently and an SSD to come; 17.3" IPS Matte LED Screen Backlit keyboard, numerious pheripherals etc. Runs on Windows 10 Pro. As exciting as this was for me given that I now have a way to have fun in my free time during college, I am getting highly noticeable stuttering in GTA Online, which leads to major dissapointment. In my attempt to pinpoint the issue i've tried various things, before I talk about them here are the settings. As you can see I've lowered most of the settings below Nvidia's recommendations, apart from 1 setting, Ambint Occlusion, but here is when it gets interesting. It doesnt matter which settings I use, NVidia's optimized settings, my prefered settings or the lowest possible I can set. I still get stuttering whatsoever. Any help would be appreciated at this point hence I'm extremely new to any sort of new hardware (My old and faithful rig is a M5A97 - Phenom II X4 - GT630 combination - lol! ) At first I thought It could be thermal throttling given that it is a notebook after all, but the laptop runs on a high performance cooler, the temperatures roam around 70-80 degrees under load, and the fan control doesnt even go up to 100% when I'm getting the stuttering ( I run the fans at 100% when I'm gaming, tried automatic to see what happens during stuttering) neither does the CPU cores reach their max speed or clock down (the CPU clocks up to 3.8Ghz under load, sits around 3.4 during GTA) As I said above, any help is appreciated.
  10. Laptop ram recommendation

    I'm glad someone caught it
  11. Laptop ram recommendation

    We have 3 high end gaming laptops in the household and all 3 of them uses different brands of RAM. Mine uses A-Data, at first I was sceptical but it has been running fine, also Crucial is fairly reputable and competitive, you see their products being used on high end systems on channels like Jayz and Linus all the time, I'ld say go for it, as we are kinda past the point where cummy brands can't exist anymore, on the online market at least, IF you are shopping from a credible store.
  12. Yes, I have reinstalled many of the software and drivers after the update, doesn't seem to work. Update: Fixed. Deleted the following from regedit and both problems are gone. On a side note, Intel, get your bricks together. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\igfxDTCM] @="{9B5F5829-A529-4B12-814A-E81BCB8D93FC}"
  13. As the title says, ever since I updated my Windows, I am having the trouble following: Incredibly slow response time on desktop Right Click Games going black screen when played in Fullscreen. Happens in GTA V, Titanfall and Guardians of Orion Tried a few things online and can't seem to find a solution, so where better to go. System specs summary: i7 7700HQ 16G DDR4 2133 256gb SSD + HDD GTX 1050 All drivers are up to date. No bloatware. Was not a problem before the update, and the PC is in the same condition. No hardware changes, no new software. Any help is appreciated
  14. As title says, I need some help on network optimization for my fiber connection. I have a few questions regarding the matter; - Is it possible to prioritize one Ethernet port over another? - Is it possible to limit speed per user? - Is it possible to prioritize wired connections over Wi-Fi? - What are the best parameters to use in the following Wi-Fi settings: > Beacon period > RTS threshold > DTIM period > Frag threshold The router that I use is a Tilgin HG1522.
  15. Need help on network optimization and more

    Good to know, altough I have no idea how to update the firmware on my router or even if I manage to do so, I don't exactly know how to set it up. Is there a way to back up current settings? Does routers support that? I've been digging through my settings and couldn't find anything of such in the router config. ** Just searched my router on dd-wrt and apparently mine is not supported.
  16. Gta V Problem

    Try turning MSAA and FXAA off, also try disabling Reflection MSAA, disable / turn off any settings in Advanced Graphics tab. Might be a new update for your graphics driver which may have changed the settings for your game (Something like GeForce Experience Optimized Settings maybe, does AMD has that? I don't know.)
  17. As title says, two of my Kodak memory cards died a day apart from each other while still being used on their respective devices. Both are 16gb units bought from the same place, 2 of 4 cards. The other 2, one being a 32g in my Drift HD 1080 and the other one, 64g in my camera, are still working fine. These two however, died a day apart from each other and currently no device or PC can recognize them. When I plug it into my Asus K55, the PC stops responding, when I plug it to my higher end notebook, it shows nothing in Disk Manager. Is there a way to revive these two, or how to avoid further occurances as such? All assist and opinions are appreciated.
  18. I do not wish to recover any data from them, I'm just curious if the current unreadable state of these cards are caused by a filesystem error that can be fixed so that I can use them again. Is it possible?
  19. Best "light" games

    Orion: Prelude is tolerable if you'ld enjoy shooting at dinos and have a few friends who will play it with you.
  20. They were fairly new aswell, If I recall corrently about 3 and a half months old. I'm no expert, but are they suppoused to die so soon?
  21. So I bought this laptop a while back. Recently I sent it back to the service to get it some extra parts. an SSD and a new 8gig of RAM. Got it back just recently, was checking things in CPU-Z and suddenly I've noticed this: the memory that got added: I have not observed any performance issues, altough I do feel bothered by this, and given the previous issues I had with the PC I'll demand a replacement for the BETTER PERFORMING Ram module. My question to you is; 1) Will this cause an issue? 2) Which module is the better one that I should ask a second one of? (I'm assuming the GSkill one)
  22. Considering the major inconviences I've had with this particular brand and all the frustration sending this to the warranty 3 times in the past, and paying for parts that they claim to fix the 'problems' I was having with the device, I was expecting them to match the A-Data stick for another A-Data one. You could say I am priveliged at this point because of all the things they have put me through. You'ld understand if you knew the full story. I don't want them to necesasrily match the A-Data one, whichever that performs better, I'll ask for a matching one. And no, they don't have to search the internet for a matching stick. Is that how distributors work over there? I'm pretty sure they have dozens of sticks lying around as both the A-Data and GSkill option is still listed in the devices on their website.
  23. Correct, GSkill was the added one. I'll not pay for a new stick, I'll call them to get them send me a matching stick of the better performing one, switch out the other one and send it back to them, at this point they are basically obliged because of my previous issues with this device-- just recently got it back from the service, which was the 3rd time in less than two months ( They couldn't solve my issue, had to send it over and over again )
  24. Here's the CPU. The rest of the system houses a GTX1050, a 5400RPM 1TB Seagate128m HDD, a 256gb Samsung SSD with 500-something R&W values Do help me choose. Edit: Fixed typo
