Disconnecting Wireless

30 November 2008 - 10:22 AM

My friends and I have a timecapsule that provides us with our internet and routing needs. One of my other housemates has a mac and the other a windows laptop, I also have a windows laptop.

Recently I have been experiencing problems with my wireless connection to our network. The connection is constantly dropped to 'limited or no connectivity' and therefore I cannot use the internet. Windows doesn't re-connect and attempting to repair the connection invariably does not work.

My housemate with the windows computer experienced a similar problem a week ago or so but it seems to have rectified itself for her. My housemate with the macintosh doesn't experience any problems at all.

At the moment the only way for me to use the internet is to use a cable from the timecapsule.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening and how I can sort it out? Was wondering if maybe the wireless on my laptop is simply dying?


Running Fah In Background On Linux

16 September 2008 - 07:26 AM

I have a server at home that I can access via SSH and want to start folding on it.

I can obviously run folding through an ssh session, but once I close that SSH session the folding stops. Is there a way for me to run the folding programme without it ending when I end the SSH session that I used to start it up?

Thanks for any help in advance

Program to back up to my FTP server

21 August 2007 - 09:06 AM

I have a laptop that I take to university with me to do all my work on. I built a small FTP server which I leave at home which I backup all my important files from my laptop to once a fortnight or so.

At the moment this means me zipping up all the files that I want to backup into an archive and then using an FTP client sending them to the FTP server. This works fine and is a good enough system but I was wondering if there is a piece of software out there that could do this for me automatically.

Does anybody know of any such software?


Mapping Network Drives Over The Internet

19 October 2006 - 07:50 AM

I had a network drive mapped at home to another of my computers so that i could access the files on it. I have now moved to university but still want to be able to access the resources on this computer.

Now i'm thinking that if i put the ip address of my router into the mapping thing then my computer should be able to connect, but i need to tell the router which computer to send the request to and for that i need to know what port all this stuff runs through. Could somebody tell me which port network drive things go through please?
