  1. Modem and switch setup

    You'd be better off with a separate modem and router than a combo. My suggestion for a router would be the TP-Link Archer C7. Assuming you're on DOCSIS (Cable internet), your best modems of choice would be from Netgear's CM series. Now I don't know what exactly you mean by "fibre", will it be all the way to the house or just a cabinet on the street?
  2. Hello I've had my HTC one m8 for over 2 years now and recently the micro USB port has been acting up. It only works , i.e can charge and transmit data, when the cable plugged in is at a certain angle, usually it has to be bent downwards (with the screen facing up), but not too far down. Sometimes it needs to be bent to the right or left as well. I've tried moving the connector around in the port with a flat head screwdriver, but it doesn't change anything. Since my warranty ended in November, is there anything in can do?
  3. If you go to sleep from the start menu, it will remain open when you wake it back up.
  4. How do you select the different link speeds?
  5. Two wifi's one router

    Yes, it is possible with most routers. You could just create an additional WiFi service set with a different, or no password. Some higher-end routers can also isolate the traffic between these two networks and prevent guests from communicating with other devices on your network.
  6. Bridged Layer 2 VPN and DHCP Servers

    I'll just do layer 3 then, thanks. The VPN software I use (SoftEther) has capabilities for both types of VPNs, but their tutorial made layer 3 routing sound more difficult.
  7. Hello. I'm building a site-to-site VPN between 2 LANs, and I have a question about how would DHCP work on such a network. I will have 2 DHCP servers on the VPN and I want devices on one network to get an IP address from a DHCP server on the same physical LAN and use the router on the same LAN to connect to the Internet, and not the one on the other LAN. How would this work? Would a newly connected device get an IP from a local DHCP server? Would it even be able to contact a DHCP server on the other site? This is the main reason why I'm skeptical about layer 2 bridging. I need devices to use the local router to connect to the internet, not the one on the other site. I know I wouldn't have such problems with layer 3 routing, but that seems more difficult to set up with the VPN software I'm using.
  8. Can a Core 2 Q9550 run Windows 10?

    You can just get SP1 from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842
  9. Can a Core 2 Q9550 run Windows 10?

    Why shouldn't it? I'm sure there are people who are having problems with your CPU and Windows 7, for example. Give it a try, see if it works. Usually it will go without problems, but if you encounter any, a clean reinstall will usually solve them.
  10. Help windows 10 will not repair itself.

    How about you just try rebooting your computer? The WinRE environment (the blue dialog screen with options to continue, troubleshoot or shut down) is sometimes loaded after an unexpected shutdown (did you unplug your PC without shutting down Windows?) or a failed startup. Just go back and select Continue. If all is good, your PC will boot into Windows 10 normally.
  11. But what if I want a convertible?


  12. Experiences with non-techies

    Then there's me, who's been using a HTC One M8 with no case or screen protector whatsoever. Dropped it several times, only a few scratches on the back and a very small one on the screen that's barely visible.
