    Disabling the modulation depends on your incomming connection.
    You could disable them one by one and see when your connection to the internet is lost.
    If its lost, than thats the one that your ISP uses and keep that one enabled. Disable all the others.
    Now just plug your router into the modem and you should be fine (I think).

    You cannot turn a modem/router combo into a switch, if you do so it will disable the modem. Which disables the incomming connection aswell. A modem is made to convert your local network to another algorithm (I think, don't quote me on that) that your ISP can understand.

    Hope this helps

    EDIT: Its not another algorithm :Þ It just converts the Digital signal to an analogue signal ;)

    Sorry, i wasn't very clear in what I was saying. I'm exploring the option of buying a new modem/router and then turning the old modem/router into a switch. The old modem/router doesn't need a connection from the ISP, I just want to make use of its ethernet ports. The new modem/router would be setup as a modem/router normally would.

     

    thanks,

    Does you modem have multiple LAN ports?
    If so I believe thats a modem/router combo.
    Most ISPs install these since it uses less space, doesn't require you to buy one and above all: Give them full control (At least all consumers packages of my ISP do).

    Maybe your ISP has a option to disable this router? If not you will have to work with a router behind a router ;)
    To do this: Connect a cat5e/6 to a LAN port on the router/modem combo and plug the other end into the WAN port of your new router.
    From your router/modem combo, search for the IP the new router has been given (You can also find this as the DHCP WAN IP in your new router).

    Configure your new router to use that IP as a static WAN IP (You might change this from 192.168.0.214 to 192.168.0.2 for instance).
    Set that static IP into your DMZ on your router/modem combo.
    Note that the new router has to have another local subnet, so for instance your router/modem combo = 192.168.0.xxx, that means your new router can have the subnet 192.168.1.xxx or 192.168.2.xxx etc.)

    This will resolve the problem, though it might result in a Dual NAT or even a Triple NAT configuration which adds a bit of delay to the network.
     

    Thank you for picking up on my error there: the ISP "modem" is a modem/router. Sorry.

     

    I had hoped to avoid double NATting, so perhaps using a new modem/router and turning the ISP modem/router into a switch would be a better option.

     

    My guess for the settings I need to disable would be:

    • Disable "Use Router as DHCP Server"
    • Disable NAT
    • Disable thesee0obTMx.png
    • Disable Wireless Router Radio
    • Disable IPV6

     

    Is this okay?

     


  3. So i've got a rather terrible ISP modem, and i want to put setup a router, so that the modem only handles the input of internet traffic into the local network.

     

    As far as I can tell, i need to connect an ethernet cable fron an ethernet port on the modem to the WAN port on the router, and then enable full bridge mode on the modem. The trouble is, my modem doesn't have that option. Here's the configuration options that it does have: 

    Spoiler

    Also, another option would be for me to use the ISP modem as a switch, and buy a modem (it'll cost a tiny bit more than the router). TP-Link C5 AC1200 (router) or TP-link D5 AC1200 (modem). Though, i'm not sure how i would do this.

     

    What should i do?

     

    Thanks,

     


  4. Your usage isn't going to change because you have a new phone. If one 1GB is enough for your HTC, it'll be fine with your S7. An exception to this would be if you decide to install all your apps using data, in which case you might not get through the first month on 1GB. Just use wifi.

     

    Personally, i need 3GB. See, you're the only one who can figure out if xGB/month is enough. Unless that number is something stupid like 0.01/month or 50/month

    I found this < http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32491872/starting-programs-on-multiple-desktops-using-powershell-in-windows-10 >. I don't know where to start with this.

     

    I've only just begun to learn C#, but automating this process would be very useful for me, so i'm going to keep at it.

     


  6. I have a Surface Book, which i use to take notes. I'm looking for a way to automate the following process:


    Note

    • "VDx" refers to the virtual desktop feature within windows. x is the particular virtual desktop*
    • Onenote UWP is the Win10 metro version of Onenote (ON). It could just as easily be replaced with another ON2016 window, but i'd prefer if i could use ON UWP here.
    • Onenote 2016 is the desktop version of Onenote
    • I'll mark a couple of things that probably aren't possible, but i'm including them because they're part of the process

    Process

    • open onenote UWP on VD1
      • Switch to a particular notebook (probably not possible)
    • Open Onenote 2016 on VD2
    • open google chrome on VD2
    • On VD2, snap chrome to the left
    • On VD2, snap ON2016 to the right
    • adjust the size of each window so that the ON2016 window is a bit wider than the chrome window (probably not possible)
    • Navigate to a particular ON notebook. In this case, it's a contents page.
      • If possible, i'd like to create a batch file for each of my subjects, since which notebook->section group->section->page differs for each subject
    • Open Onenote 2016 on VD3
    • navigate to another, different ON notebook
    • Open a file explorer window on VD4 and navigate to a particular folder (folder dependant on subject).

    Potentially helpful info

    • Keyboard shortcut to open a new Onenote window is Ctrl+M. A onenote window must be in focus for this to work, and it will open on the same VD as that ON window.

    I don't want to waste time on doing this every time I have a class. Also, due to bugs with the Surface Book, being forced to restart the device is not uncommon. If this has to happen halfway through furiously writing notes, i'm going to get left behind.

    I really hope there's a way to do this, and i figure that if there is a way, someone on superuser will know about it. If not, perhaps there would be another StackExchange more suited to this?

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe you have the PrtScr -key stuck or something. Residue from a drink in it sor something? Win+ PrtScr does exactly what you're describing except that the path is actually ...\Pictures\Screenshots. 

    Ah you're right that's the correct location

     

    However, my keyboard is about two months old (Corsair k70)  and i've never spilt anything on it, so how PrtScr is occasionally pressed, when i'm not pressing it, is beyond me.

    if you press windows key and press screenshot, i believe it takes a screenshot and saves it there

    (i honestly didnt know this existed, always had to use paint, the more you know)

    I've just tried win + prtscr and that has the same behaviour (flash the screen dark for a second and save the screenshot to Users\____\pictures).

     

    I only press the windows key (or Win + tab or Win + s), i never press prtscreen, because the snipping tool exists, so this is rather strange.


  9. Based on all the people I know, only 3 have GTX 970s. I feel the stats don't show the demographic. Also, I am kind of insterested in the Forum's hardware (That's the people on the forum, not the stuff hosting the forum.

    Fair enough if you want stats from people on this forum, but your friends represent a very small part of the pie that is the steam hardware surveys. There's nothing wrong with steam stats to represent steam users.


  10. in and out of what? The system? We hire npc muscle ofc. If they have a detailed setting features for npc guards we could white/black list organization and what not easily.

    Tek syndicate warps in? Shoot on sight!

    No org related player? Give them a warning: this is a restricted zone and tell them to turn back with a 30 sec timer ticking. If the timer runs out the npc will warp in and fire on sight.

    Just some examples. Ofc someone could stealth in and sneak around, there are ships designed for that.

    Idunno, but there are ways to make it work, question is... What will RSI let us be able to do?

    Same rules could be applied to stations. Kinda like how elite does it.

    UEE won't attack unless we steal one of there ships/bases. And if we are outside of there jurisdiction I doubt they can do anything.

    Question is, can we build our own bases like in Eve? As far as I know we can't...

    Oh the wait an see game is fun, isn't it?


  11. That is a possibility, but i think it'd be far better if we could have bases that are officially ours, and that we can build up, and upgrade, both it's strength and utility.

    Of course that could create a couple of problems. The largest organisations could end up controlling large areas of space, which isn't ideal, because nations like the UEE and Vanduul are supposed to be in charge of that. I appreciate the 9:1 ratio of AI to humans, but that wouldn't necessarily stop an org (or an org of orgs) from taking control.

    Also, having a base where an org would concentrate a lot of their members could cause trouble with instancing. Whereby you can't see a large number of your allies, because your instance is full.

    Since you can own factories and control space stations, you can set them up as bases.

    Factories we could control what goes in and out off it by force if necessary, space stations would be the same.

     

    Then you have mobile bases like set capital ships that would allow us to quick deploy to different locations, quiet areas of vanduul space is another where we can limit what goes in and out then we could have capital ships in the black abyss of space, think of jumping to crusader but stop when you are short of the next jump point by say 100km then point to another jump point and travel in that direction for 50km, it would give you a position unlikely to ever be found and allow a unique jump to any close enough point at an angle people wouldn't be expecting.

    That's sounds like a nice strategy, but it doesn't really address my problems. We don't know for sure that we can control bases, and we can't sit on one all day, controlling what goes in and out. Besides, if that was in UEE space, we'd quickly build up a large bounty on our heads.

  12. What stops us from saying that a particular outpost is ours and shoot down everything in sight?  :P

  13. All actual org money that flows in through taxes will be used to support and build our bases, buy and upgrade/repair military ships and generally support our members.

    Do you know that we'll actually be able to build bases in SC?

     

    I'm just asking because i've never heard it discussed by the devs, or in the SC subreddit.
