  1. Yeah it's pretty pricey so i'm expecting to be completely satisfied with it and if i'm not then i'll probably return it. Thanks for your advice. I'm gonna head to bed now
  2. thanks for the info based on that i think i'll try this one and see if i can't get something working. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TSQFD7X/ It has some neat features like using a USB-A to USB-C adapter or just micro HDMI to hook it up. Which USB-C display do you have? If you don't mind me asking.
  3. I have a Maximus IX Hero mobo and all of the documentation for it says nothing about whether or not the USB-C port can handle displays and the marking on the I/O shield just says "USB C". I'd like to avoid buying a display for USB C just to find out it doesn't work. Is there any way to check? Can desktop mobos even have USB-C displays?
  4. Thanks, you've definitely given me something to work with there. He's not super computer savvy so i'll have to put a link to it on his desktop and maybe adblock a few specific things but I'm still going to keep looking in case there's something better.
  5. There's a few checkers games on the windows store but all the ones i checked out were either player vs computer or local pvp.
  6. My grandpa is on a windows 7 computer and plays internet checkers for an hour or two every day. But when windows 7 loses support they're shutting down the internet checkers server. I've tried a bunch of different windows 10 checkers games but none that i find are free, online, and for windows 10. I was hoping someone might know one that would work
  7. Thanks for all the help and advice. I went with pre-made cables like you suggested and got amazon basics cat7 (cause higher number more gooder??) and it looks like it solved my problem. While I was swapping the cables out the old ones looked pretty worn and I think they were cat5 which might have been the issue. But i'm on 1gb speeds on LAN and it's held steady without any issues for over a day now so problem solved.
  8. Thanks for helping me troubleshoot but i need to get some sleep. I'm going to order the stuff i need to make new cables since i should probably have that stuff anyways and just hope that that's the problem. I've never bought that stuff before though so do you have any suggestions on what spool/crimper/cable tester i should get?
  9. So... unplugging one of the computers from the router, plugging it into the laptop, then plugging it back into the router seems to have fixed the speed problem for that one computer but the connection keeps dropping out completely now. The other computer is still having speed problems though. I've heard cables can fail and drop down to 100mbps speeds but i've always thought that was rare and they would normally just either work perfectly or not at all. I'm looking for a replacement cable but i don't think i have one long enough.
  10. That's not something i normally do so i'm not sure if i did it correctly. i just ran a cable from the computer's ethernet port to my laptop's ethernet port and checked it the same way i've been checking it which is Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network Connections\ethernet status then look at speed. When i set it up that way it reads 1.0 Gbps on both my laptop and desktop
  11. good idea. i just checked and all the ports show as 1 gb when i hook the laptop up to them.
  12. Well i installed windows 10 on my laptop and plugged it into the router with a patch cable and it gets 1gb speeds. i still can't imagine what the problem could be though.
  13. I only have a laptop to test with but i doesn't have a boot drive in it so it'll take some time before i can test with that.
  14. I was poking around in the settings and i couldn't find anything that lets you change the speed of the LAN connection and the only thing i could find on google was to make sure that under adapter properties>advanced tab>speed and duplex>value is set to auto negotiate
  15. I've got two computers connected to a router which i just upgraded to a Nighthawk X4S R7800. Before I upgraded the router, both computers were showing 1 gb speeds and after I upgraded the router they're both showing 100 Mbps. I updated the firmware on the router and restarted it along with both computers but nothing changed. I swapped in the old router (Cisco-Linksys E4200) and my speeds went back up to 1gb. Does anyone have any ideas?
