  1. Hi, I just made my new build today (Upload still pending as I'm writing it still) and I tried to get internet by sharing it via my laptop through its Ethernet port, and it works though... I take down the whole internet for everyone else in my house... So I need a USB dongle faster than expected. Now my question is; What would the best Wi-Fi USB dongle be for now? Before anyone says "Just get an internal card" the USB dongle is a temporary solution until I can get a LAN port in my own room (I still live with my parents, my dad has a pretty much a broken back and my mom wouldn't know
  2. Hi So, I usually disable the audio limited because I want to blast my music through my headphones. However, since I noticed I hear a little bit less than I used to, I had decided to leave it on with my new phone. Today out of habit I disabled it when it popped up. And now I can't re-enable the warning again. I checked everywhere in the settings and I can't seem to find it, restarting the phone didn't help and I've seen people talk about 3 dots in the volume settings but I don't have any dots in it. It concerns a Samsung Galaxy A40 with Android 9 and One UI 1.1 EDIT; So,
  3. I run Windows 10 Pro on all my devices. I have one laptop with Linux Ubuntu on it. I use Windows mainly because I am the most familiar with it, it's versatile, easy to use, and compatible with literally every PC game under the sun, well, almost I think. As for Linux, I only have it installed simply to mess around with it. I have seen no practical use to switch over to Linux because I don't see any added value. I might use it when I start programming? But I'm not sure, as I have 0 knowledge on programming so I don't know what the best OS is, programs, language, and so on. Then coming to iOS, I
  4. Ok, so update, I seemed to have fixed the issue (I THINK!) What I did was in VMWare made a LAN Segment and put the NIC's of all my servers including that workstation in that LAN Segment, first thing my workstation said if it wants to be discoverable in PoliForma.nl so I knew it recognized the network, tried adding it to a domain and boom! It went in!
  5. Well, PoliForma.nl since that is the domain we are required to use according to our handbook Well, no, in the virtual machine I do of course I guess? But yeah it seems like it is a real domain....
  6. Well I would use something else, however, the other settings don't work, they don't give internet access to the servers so I am basically forced to use this for internet connection, though I can put the LAN NIC's on a different setting though I don't know which one would be best. Yes, I can ping the domain though the IP is a bit odd since that's not an IP I have set on the servers,, don't know if that's normal or not or if it is accidentally pinging to the real site (since the publisher of the book apparently uses this address name to link to their site too) Pinging t
  7. Hi So I want to install Lubuntu on my laptop of only a mere 2GB of RAM, I download 32-bit Lubuntu, used Rufus to make my USB-drive bootable. I plugged it in and went to the BIOS, there I changed the load order so that the USB is first and Window load last. It displays the model of my USB so it does recognize it as a bootable USB if I'm correct. But when I save the changes and exit, it always goes to Windows, completely skipping the USB! Why? Am I doing something wrong here? My laptop is pre-built and so it has pre-installed Windows 10. I never really changed an OS on an existing OS
  8. Hi! So, for school I have to completely redo a project since apparently my teacher lost the documentation somehow. I'm currently stuck however. I'm doing an IT Study and we use "Netwerkbeheer met Windows Server 2016" by Jan Smets and we do everything in VMWare. In chapter 5 I have to create a Windows Workstation and add that Workstation to my domain. However, I can't add it for some reason. First, however, let me give you an overview of the situation; I have 2 servers, 1 with 2 NIC's and 1 with 1 NIC. Server 1 has one internet NIC which is configured in DHCP and uses VMWa
  9. I'm actually trying on a Desktop, I just have 2 other laptops with no drive, my apologies, should've specified more. But the motherboard in my Desktop is a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P (rev 2.0) which is pretty old I think. And the dvd should be bootable since like I said; I booted up once on the exact same pc and with the exact same dvd. I even followed the instructions on the official Ubuntu page on a second disc so it should work but it doesn't.
  10. What exact system information do you need to know? And unfortunately I don't have access to other pc's. My laptops don't have a DVD drive, and I don't have access to my parents pc to test it on there
  11. So, I'm trying to install Linux on my main PC for programming, and since the BIOS doesn't support USB-Boot I need to use DVD's. However, when I select the DVD from the boot menu, it acknowledges a Linux ISO is on there since it says ISOLINUX 6.03 20171017 but it just restarts my PC after a few seconds and launches to Windows, there is no notification to press a button to boot from DVD btw, I even tried mashing all the buttons. I checked the disc and everything should be burned correctly, it's even weirder since I have used this disc before on this exact same computer and it worked back then, I
  12. Good day So, I want to try coding to see what it's like and if I like it. However, I have no experience whatsoever (except writing a simple HTML code at a open day at a school, pardon me I don't know the translation), so I have no clue where to start. I've looked at the programming resources thread by the way but it didn't really help me. So I'm asking for some advice; For someone who wants to try coding, possibly as just a hobby, where should I start? Which program should I use?: I know that different programs have different uses, Unity for games, Eclipse seems to be for Mi
  13. So, my laptop doesn't keep the time once it shuts off. When I turn it back on it displays the time of when I shut it down, it only syncs correctly via internet. While not a major issue it's still annoying. I know it's most likely the battery on the motherboard, but if my knowledge serves me correctly, removing/replacing it would reset everything, right? If so, does it reset anything major? I never went into the BIOS so settings shouldn't change there, but I don't know if it changes anything inside Windows itself.
  14. lol, indeed, I can understand that there might be no support for the regions, but come on. It's not like some features use region specific things. Cortana ok, but they should make it so you can just set that she talks in English and still use it or something.
  15. So, Windows 10 has some neat features, unfortunately, not everyone in the world can access them because of region locks or unsupported regions *cough*giveusdutchcortana*cough*. So, I wanted to start a little discussion; Do you change your region so you can fully access all of Windows 10? And what do you think about that tihngs are region locked? No matter if you even put your device in English language.
