  1. That makes sense, however the computer i am using to try and access the switch is directly attached to it.
  2. Here is the layout. The gateway is and Arris something or other provided by the ISP. The gateway has four port in the back of it, two of those ports go directly to computers. The third port in use has a CAT5 cable that runs to the opposite end of the building where i have a Cisco-Linkseys WRT54GL router configured as a switch. I think the option was labeled passthrough or something. Anyway it serves connection both wirelessly and hardwired to a number of computers. I'm afraid you lost me with the subnet thing, all i know is that it works, but i can't access the cisco-linkseys router to change its settings.
  3. I can see but not access my network switch. Setup: Computer -> Switch -> Gateway Router I setup my network a few years ago. At that time i could access the switch by navigating to it via, and the router by Then last year my ISP replaced my gateway with one of their own, an Arris something or other, that they locked me out of. Now i have to call them whenever i want a port forwarded and explain why, such bs. Problem: I just recently started using the wireless functionality of my switch(yes i'm a little behind the times in that respect) and as such wanted to see if there were any settings i could tweak. So i direct my browser to and it times out. I ping it and it times out. I tracert it, and it times out. At this point i downloaded SoftPerfect Network scanner, it can see all the devices on my network and registered something with the ip address, but couldn't tell me anything else about it. So i found a mac address scanner which not only said there was a device there but also confirmed it was a Cisco-Linksys device. But i still can't access it. Do any of y'all network wizards have any ideas on what i could try? Thanks, Speed
  4. This is very true, but i am not the only one who uses my pc, and i can't account for all of their web habits as i am not always home when it is 'borrowed'. Wev, i downloaded panda, it is very light weight and fast. It turned up some tracking cookies and adware that AVG had missed, and had a clear process for dealing with them. But unfortunately it doesn't have a scheduled scan, and for me that is a deal breaker because i want something that will check the system even when i forget to, and it can't do that. But i would highly recommend it for someone who likes to run their stuff manually.
  5. Its not as bad in the US as it is in the UK. No average speed cameras, no speed cameras, and barely any traffic. I'm pretty used to long drives, I do them a couple times a year to go visit my family in Miami, its a 5 hour and 30 minute ride. Oh, best of all, radar detectors and laser jammers are legal in most states, which means you can go however fast you please. Haha, yeah... 'most' states. Don't take it up north. And even if it itself is legal a real picky cop will cite you for obstructing due course of law or some such. Can't remember, i wasn't the one driving, but it was BS.
  6. Yeah i have had no problems with AVG itself, its done its job, but the 'added functionality' is rather irritating. I'll give panda a go.
  7. Now i know this can o worms has been opened in the past but i think something up-to-date would not go amiss. Back Story: I have been using AVG Free and it has worked fairly well, it has found and eliminated a few viruses and kept my computer running fairly smoothly, but it insits on hijacking my browsers and its update this morning was the last straw. I was in the middle of working on a research paper and avg started up, its scheduled to run Thursday mornings at 8, no problem, it asked to update, not a problem i hit update and went to refill my coffee. Come back and it has closed and reset my browsers. Like completely, search and home page is now avg and my history, login data, cache, and cookies are all gone. Screw you AVG i'm done. I used to use MSE but after seeing the test results for it toward the end of last year i jumped ship, but it never did me wrong so i'm not adverse. Question: My question therefore is not about which is best virus wise but which is best usability and user friendly wise. (I weekly run malwarebytes and super anti spyware, i jsut need something that will run and catch most stuff should i forget) Which is most customizable and least intrusive? Thank y'all, speed
  8. Spent the morning watching all the poor southerners trying to drive in a dusting of snow on a salted road =p Not saying i'm really that great either, but its hilarious to watch.

    Mincraft x.0

    I haven't played in probably a year or more. Might redownload it if i can find my password, but i doubt i'll do either =p
  10. Tell me, how did it compare to a disposable with multiple blades? I have only ever used those, or electric ones. And atleast in those categories the more blades the better the shave. I mean i know you said it was the best shave of your life but do you mean, ease, feel, closeness?
  11. Chrome own't quit until google rescans the site. But i believe dave said they removed the dangerous add.
  12. Happy birthday dave. It may be a tuesday but do your best to enjoy yourself =p
  13. Glad to hear y'all have it under control.
  14. NOTE: I am using Chrome. So i logged in this morning and can't view certain threads. They throw this warning: Now obviously i doubt its validity, but i'm curious. Last time this happened it turned out to be the FAH sigs. I haven't tried a huge number but so far i haven't spotted a pattern. Is anyone else having this problem? EDIT: Here is the advisory.
  15. Dang... what happended man, glad to hear you are alright.
  16. If no one is going to claim the portal bundle i will. I hate to only use half the bundle but i really want to play portal II.
  17. Same pickup. Pics in the old thread, only with new tires. If something changes i'll post a new one.
  18. I would agree with hbc, but i have the case so if you throw me some measurements i can check them for you.
  19. I have a samsung surround sound set up in the living room. Its nice for movies but really isn't that great for music. Could probably be configured better but we don't use it enough to spend the money. For my pc i have a CM Sirus S headset that has halfway decent surround sound, but i only use that for movies and games, for music i use my old - not so reliable - 2.1 setup.
  20. Lol. I noticed the same thing. Top notch, same as my dog's breath is a notch above foul =p Glad you are back at folding, i haven't been able to fold for a few months now, my cards have finally worn out, one failed and the other is hanging on until i can afford to replace it.
  21. Tell me, i have never had the chance to break one of those down before, how easy is it to break down and put back together?
  22. Cool doug, reminds me I still wanna get a nice, long .22 bolty someday. I have my sister's inherited Marlin Model 75 if I want 10-22 like action....though there's no where to take rifles around here I'm gonna guess 25? Lol i noticed the number after i asked, though its awful tall for a 25. Or is it single stack? I'll tell you a good excuse. "JUST BECAUSE DAMN IT" Same reason I built an AR-15 Good reason, but i'd probably build an AR before i buy another .22 i can't find any practical reason for more than .22 rifles at this point. On the general firearms topic: I read this article about dogs in Scotland today and i struck me how similar their arguments are to the anti gun crowd in the US. I mean really, micro-chipping and muzzling all the law abiding people's dogs will stop those feral dogs or irresponsible people's dogs from biting people? Sounds real similar to the remove the law abiding citizens guns but not the ones that will cause trouble... Its laughable, and whats really laughable is an anti-gun family member laughed at it till i pointed out the similarities to their stance, then they started defending it...
  23. Love those guns. Wish i had an excuse to get one. How many does that mag hold?
