  1. This is the only network it does this with. Both at home and in university I have not had any problems... I've updated the Apple AirPort already, so I would rule out old software as well...
  2. And what exactly is that going to do? I'm not voiding the warranty on this brand new laptop to try a different adapter, that'd be pretty stupid. It works just fine with other laptops.
  3. A clean driver install did not fix the problem, does anyone else have an idea what could be the issue?
  4. Yea I have read that as well, turned that off already. It doesn't seem to fix the problem. I'll do a clean driver install in a minute, see what happens then
  5. Yea, all other devices work fine with the router. This is however the first Windows 8.1 machine, maybe that's got something to do with it. I'll do a clean driver install in the morning, too tired to bother right now.
  6. I keep loosing my internet connection with my new laptop. The problem is so that the WiFi stays connected, but I cannot load any websites. If I click on the network diagnosis, it fixes the problem but says that the default gateway was not available. This happens at random intervals, sometimes every 20 minutes, sometimes hours without a problem. All the research points to old drivers for my network card (Intel Dual Band Wireless AC-7260), but I have updated it to the newest from Intels website already. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  7. The only option I have is to disable AV Mode on the display itself, which helps, but doesn't fix the overscan completely. Various forums suggest it should be found in the catalyst control center etc, but I have an integrated Intel HD4400 card. I've been searching through the options of the configuration utility but I don't think there's an option for overscan / pixel-to-pixel mode
  8. Yep, just installed those. There's another problem which I have just realized: Every time I start I have to reset the display scaling on the Samsung, since it makes the picture larger than the screen can handle...
  9. Yea, I did change the ClearType, which also seems to have made it better. I think the contrast to the WQHD IPS panel on the laptop just makes the 24" Samsung seem a bit old and out of focus... or maybe I am imagining things... still, the DVI connection from the old laptop had a better picture quality than the HDMI connection on this ThinkPad, which is quite annoying actually...
  10. Hey Waco, thanks for the reply! I think that was part of the problem. I changed it back to 100% scaling, which is ideal for the 24" screen, however the icons etc are now tiny on the 14" laptop. As far as my research goes, it is impossible to change the DPI per monitor in Winblows 8.1 which sucks... Also, the text is still not exactly ideal. It still hurts my eyes a little bit reading on the big screen. While it does seem to be better, it's still slightly blurry... not sure how to properly explain that?
  11. Hey guys, it's been a while since I logged in here, but I need some help! I just got a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon and the OneLink docking station to go with it. I have connected a Samsung 2492HS screen through the HDMI port on the docking station and was trying to use dual screens. So far, I have set the screen to the native resolution of 1920x1080 60Hz, but the picture quality is absolutely horrendous. It seems like it's somewhat out of focus in Firefox, like hurting my eyes when I read out of focus. Also, Windows configured it so that the desktop symbols are humongous, which I can't seem to change? Up until last week I was using the same monitor with my Samsung P480 Laptop + DVI and the picture quality was amazing! Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
  12. I was in Scottland over the weekend and finally found a Whisky that I actually like: The Glenrothes Special Reserve Single Malt, spectacular taste!
  13. A Pilsner Urquell is pretty nice, Peroni is a little too watery in my opinion. But then again I am a North German, which means I like my beers a little stronger in taste
  14. Hi lads, I got a Samsung P480 laptop and the Samsung P-Dock docking station and it's been a beautiful work combination ever since! However, since a few weeks ago, it sometimes randomly shuts down when in the docking station. I don't mean like a BSOD or just regular shutdown, but it's a hard one. Suddenly the screen goes black and poof its off! The first time this has happened was after I have installed jDownloader, but I removed that since but it makes no difference. It happens most often when the laptop is under stress, however I have also gamed Battlefield 2 for like two hours and that hasn't phased it much? I'm at a loss as to what it could be? I've run a chkdsk /r just to make sure... Thanks a lot for you input guys!
  15. Ahh beer! One of my favorite topics! As per Germany (my home country), I love a good Flensburger and our somewhat local brew, Wittinger (only available in the area north-east of Hannover, the L
