    Try another DNS server, find one in your region with a low ping and use it.. Sometimes devices like it if you have a backup DNS server try having one that has a backup server as well like, (Just examples). You may find you have faster internet speed if you try this.

    school‘s wifi not allow use steam,how to solve?

    Have you heard of this cool thing called a “Firewall”, schools have group policies and unless you have direct permission from IT administrator, tampering with blocked services can get you in trouble...

    CAT5E gives slower ISP download speed than CAT6

    Well first there are different qualities of CAT5e cable, some are definitely cheaper and slower mediums then higher quality cable. Sheilding could be another issue, maybe the wires are having cross talk issues... Also are you making your own cables? The ends might now be as high of quality as needed to support high speeds...

    No more bragging rights :(

    Used to have 3Mbps speed, I would leave a download running when I would go to bed and watch it finish in the morning lol..

    1080 ti beyond repair?

    It just amazes me that he would buy a GTX 1080 TI, but even if he didn’t want to upgrade power supply, like 5$ in molex adapters and he wouldn’t have this problem

    1080 ti beyond repair?

    Can I just ask what in the world was he thinking, was he to cheap to buy a decent power supply + he could have bought the 8 pin power adapter from molex, and 6 pin power adapter... The only thing I can suggest is cleaning the graphics card, try to assess the damage, ensure all the acid is removed, re apply thermal paste, and hope for the best... One other question how did the acid stay in the graphics card??

    Had low ping to servers and now suddenly its double

    Sadly unless you take over your ISP not much else then general troubleshooting that you can do..

    Couldn’t have said it better myself, thanks for beating me to it.

    From a physical standpoint I would love to say yes, Physically it would make sense for your traffic to be directly routed to the servers. But odds are your ISP is re-routing traffic around before it actually ends up at the server you are trying to connect to.. Are you running windows, a good way to test how many hops your packets are making is to do the tracert command in command prompt... I know I live in the US, but on our campus all traffic gets routed around our ISP’s internal network a few dozen places even before it reaches the global World Wide Web.. The odds are your ISP is doing something similar.. You will be surprised how many random locations your data gets routed to that makes no sense..

    Needing Help

    So, My friend brought me his Gaming PC today to fix... I hope it’s something fixable.. SPECS Core i5 8400 TUF GAMING H370-Pro Gaming and an EVGA 700 B Power Supply ( I have eliminated the RAM as a culprit already) So, when the power supply is flipped on the onboard power LED, flickers randomly and the power button does nothing... I have tried unplugging all the fans, removing the RAM, unplugging the power supply, resetting the CMOS battery, removing all PCI, and PCIE, in varied orders yet nothing has fixed it, I have also trying to see if the SATA drives are shorting the board in anyway. I tried another power supply but that test was inconclusive due to not having a spare 700 wat power supply on hand and only having a 500 wat power supply. He said that the board powered (only been powered on once) on and hasn’t worked since he shut it down.. If he just needs a new board I will tell him. But if there is anyway to troubleshoot it even more or anyone has advice... I’m open to help.
