Hi guys,

I have one Access Point with high gain antenna as the getaway and my laptop with wireless as the receiver. I have a question, is it right that it needs 2 way signal from both my AP and laptop wireless to get connected? So even my AP could give good signal with the high gain antenna, but if my laptop wireless could not reach my AP that won't work? Thanks.

Dear All,


i have a situation in which i want SUN E3500, E3000 servers to access (manage) remotely & planned to use IP based KVM.

--------- at this time i have "4x1x16 HP IP console Switch".

but the actual problem is that how to connect these servers with KVM cuz KVM cables have standard VGA port connector and SUN E3500 & E3000 have 13W3 VGA connector.

--------- so I did some R&D on it and found a converter on internet
http://www.vpi.us/cgi-bin/vpi/13w3m-15hdf.html
&  detail is following

PART NUMBER::::::  13W3M-15HDF
Description::::::::::::  13W3 SUN VIDEO PORT to STND VGA PORT

but i m not gonna buy it until i m sure that it works....

and now begins the actual problem

NOW it looks simple that i put KVM VGA port into this connector back side and other side to SUN VGA port.

BUT I m not sure about resolution of VGA cuz SUN has high resolution monitors - is it possible to see same view on normal standard monitors.


So any one have any ideas related to this ~ are welcome. if u have any other KVM over IP device for SUN servers so please advice or if you are sure about my work that it will work - so give your ideas


waiting ............

Thanks

I'm looking for suggestions and help on finding a good KVM for my home office.  It should have:
- 3 ports minimum prefer 4.
- DVI (can I use an adapter to connect computers that don't have DVI outputs?)
- able to handle 1680 x 1050 resolution
- USB connections for mouse and keyboard
- Dual monitors would be nice to have but not totally neccisary


Based off of that does anybody have any recommendations or suggestions?

Thanks,
Tim

Hi,
I am in the need of any KVM extender, I have seen some but those don´t work over the LAN , they use CAT5 but it needs to be wired out of the LAN .

What I need is to move a desktop from a very dirty area and just leave the keyboard,mouse and monitor then reach the desktop from wherever it is.

Is there something out there I can get cheaper than a thin client ?

Thanks

Quick little problem I have noticed.

We have a few Netgear FS726T switches. If I'm plugged into one directly and ping it, this is what happens:

Hi,

I would like to know why is my wireless network between my PC and router lagging?
It will often have this lag. This is the ping.

Hello All!

I've never bought a KVM switch before and now I need one.  I'd like to get one that has 4 ports on it and comes with the cables.  Also, I need one to support both DVI and Analog connections.  I know that there are IP based ones too, but I'd never played around with those.  

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

I have been trying to figure out my media center problems, my computer has a built in TV tuner, and with a standard arial can get normal TV channels in the UK. I have tried everything though to get my STB working on my PC to watch cable TV.

Hi all,

I am having a problem with what I understand is digital noise on my screen.

I just bought a ATEN 2-Port DVI model CS1262 KVM for my T30+port replicator, to combine my desktop and my ThinkPad T30 laptop onto my single K-V-M console. Now with the desktop PC, everytiing works great. My problem is that the laptop causes quite alot of digital noise when I run my EIZO LCD screen at its natural 1600x1200. Maybe it's to do with the port replicator (docking station), but I can't test what happens without the port replicator because the T30 does not itself have a DVI.

From the little I have found about this issue by searching the Web, I am getting the idea that *better* and *shorter* cables could help. Maybe all these stages altogether is just too much:

    the port replicator    +
    2m DVI cable ('standard quality' (?) - thin but with filters, that came with the screen)     +
    2m DVI cable    ('standard quality' (?)  - thick but without filters, that came with the screen) .

Anybody came across this and got a solution? What cable(s) would I need to buy? What's out there?

But I install it and the printer shows up but when I try to print, I get a instant error.  

I also tried to update the driver by going to device manager right clicking on the unkown and update driver.

I'm using a parrallel to usb cable because the desktop does not have a printer port, just usb

After last years hurricane season and Wilma cutting power to my Hollywood branch office for 4 days, I am looking for business continuity solutions.

Here is my scenario that I would have to work in...

My branch office has no power. And even if it did, all the phone lines are down including our T1. The branch administrator takes her laptop and backs up the server to it. Now she is sitting in her house that has a generator and hurricane shutters. She is safe and so is the laptop and company data.

But she has to make contact with other branches and corporate headquarters to stay in business. She needs to be able to talk to people outside of the disaster zone. Is there a card that I can put in her laptop that would give her access to a satellite? Or something that could pickup a wireless network outside the disaster area? With this, she would be able to use Yahoo voice and talk with whoever she needs to and would not have to depend on the local services.

Short of that solution, is there any other way of being in contact with others?

And lastly but surely just as important, I have a very limited budget to do this with. [read that as $0 and we can work up from there!]

thanks in advance!

Hi all

I have 2 computers (A and B) wired to my netgear router and can successfuly share my internet connection between them - no issues there.

Computer A is a laptop running xp home, Norton Internet Security 2006 and ZoneAlwarm Firewall (windows firewall turned off)
Computer B is a desktop running xp media centre edition, Norton Internet Security 2006 and ZoneAlwarm Firewall (windows firewall turned off)

Once setting up my wired cabling and successfuly getting both computers connected to the internet, I tried to set up a home network with the microsoft netwrok wizard. I first ran the wizard on computer A and followed all the steps: made sure each computer had a unique name on the network etc. I then used my USB flash memory stick to transfer the network settings to computer B.

Now here is where I have no idea what is going on and get really confused.

I have restarted each computer numerous times in hope that they swill now 'see each other'. (I'm not even sure how to test whether or not they can see each other and secondly I'm not sure how or where to access/open any 'shared' files).

One way I assume, is to click on 'view workgroup computers'. When I do so on computer B, I can 'see' both computers in the window. However, when I double click computer A I get the message:

"\\'computer name' is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The…

Issue. I am able to connect to the VPN from my home computer and am able to login to the D.C. via remote desktop but am unable to connect to any other computer on the network.

Background: Had a power supply go out on old server. Replaced the case and motherboard etc but was able to transfer the hard drives to new mother board and get server back up. Server is a Small Business Server 2000. I was able to connect to the desktops on network prior to server going down. Now I'm not sure what is missing in this puzzle.

Not sure why I would be able to connect to the VPN and then be able to login to the D.C. via remote desktop but not to other desktops. I have verified the RRAS service is started and verified that the desktop setup to allow remote access.

Help!!
Thanks.

A tape got stuck and chewed up in our HP Ultrium 230 drive the other day and a colleague had to take the drive apart to remove it. (before you ask the drive is way out of warranty!). Now its been put back together it will not load a tape.

I could do with a manual that details the internal workings of the drive so we can check it has been put back together OK. I have looked on the HP website but all they seem to have are basic user and troubleshooting guides

Does anybody know if such a document is available for download anywhere? I appreciate that this is the sort of thing HP would generally not make widely available but if there is anybody out there with some inside contacts then I would be most grateful!

Hello,
   I am having trouble getting my GA-K8U up and running.
I have it hooked up to a single SATA drive [Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 ST3250823AS 250GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150] and cannot seem to get it to recognize the drive. When I boot into the BIOS CMOS setup and attempt to switch channel 2 to auto detect the BIOS sceen locks and forces me to reboot. Suspecting that I must have the RAID configuration wrong, I entered the RAID, JBOD foniguration setup, which interestingly shows the drive, but will not accept any keybord inputs. Interestingly, I do see the drive on vethis screen.

I have also tried booting from both the Windows CD and the Gigabyte drivers and utilities CD that came with the board. The driver CD fails to recognize the drive and forces me to reboot. The windows install CD either hangs at the "Stating up windows" phase of the install (most often) or occasionally gives me the the cannot detect storage device message.

I have also attempted to install windows on a USB drive, just to get the machine booting up.
After completing the DOS style phase of the process, Windows is bluescreening on reboot.

I need urgent help. I had to install an aditional ADSL WIC to a 2801 router. I turned off the router, installed the WIC and turned the router back on. Everything was fine, WIC detected, no line detected in the ADSL side, but that could be another different problem.

My real problem is that we had to turn off the router again, because we had to change its position in the rack. After all, i have founf that the ROUTER HAS LOST ITS VPN, FIREWALL and IPS capabilities. They were working for sure, i had seen them before, actuallly, there was a VPN connection working perfectly. It only has its asic IP feature set. Where are all the rest gone?

After the WIC was installed, at leas one time, i saw the VPN working, but after that, they disappeared.

Every crypto and IPS command have disappeared from my running-config, and i can´t add them again. SDM tells me that feature sets VPN, IPS and Firewall are not available.

What has happened? How can i get them back?

Please help!

Hello experts,

We got an oracle RAC 10g in a testbed. That is 2 supermicro servers with SLES installed.

After a month or so, the stable running Oracle RAC broke completely down and I'm starting to suspect an hardware issue.

Since we had outsourced the setup of that RAC any "non data destructive" hardware check is needed. The company that has the contract to setup that RAC told us they are no longer able to finish that task, so it's back to us, to get these the servers working without any too long further delays.

I know knoppix (by name) and sandra by former use, still I could really need some suggestions for a nice 24 hours system check, including: harddisk, memory, video, cpu tests and network tests. Best way would a cdrom based check of cause.

Any ideas?

Our office (UK based) is wired with non standard plug sockets (something to do with having clean power). These are the type of sockets we have:

http://rswww.com/cgi-bin/bv/rswww/searchBrowseAction.do?D=non%20standard&Ntt=non%20standard&Nr=avl%3auk&Ntk=I18NAll&N=0&Nty=1&name=SiteStandard&forwardingPage=line&R=2227976&callingPage=/jsp/search/search.jsp&BV_SessionID=@@@@0438244821.1151748613@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccaddieigfeglcefeceefdffhdgmo.0&cacheID=ukie

Up until now we have attached our PC's to this using normal IEC leads that have had their plugs snipped off and manually replaced with a non standard plug. These leads are now getting a bit old and I could do with getting new ones. I can't really be bothered manually rewiring over 100 plugs but am having problems finding any pre-manufactured ones. Does anybody know anywhere in the UK where I can buy them?

This is a cotinuation of the following thread

Now I'm getting it to work fine, only when I disable my firewall (Sygate Personal Firewall)
Now I tried enabling (checking) all the applications in the applications tab, but that does not do the trick. The network works if I say allow all or disable firewall, but not if I check all the applications individually.

Hi,

I'm currently trying to fix my friend's old desktop computer that he gave to me. however, right now i'm experiencing the "random reboot" problem in winxp.

it's a:
p4 2.66 socket 478
ECS mobo (I'm away from the comp right now, but i'll check later)
1GB 2700 DDR
ATI Radeon 9200
80GB WD HDD ATA 133
CD-RW + CD-ROM
3.5 Floppy

anyway, as i said before, it's having problems with "random reboot". So far, this is what i've tried with no effect.

1. CPU temps? 36 degree C at Idle. -ok
2. Memtest 86 for 6 passes - ok
3. install all updates for winxp
4. reformat + reinstall xp
5. CPU thermal paste removal and reaplication (AS5)
6. Reseat RAM

I've turned off the "restart automatically" function of winxp. however, it does not give me a blue screen of death, it just immediatly reboots seemingly @ random.

now, when i first opened up this case, i noticed that the cpu fan connector was loose!! however, i reconnected it, and it boots fine. Any chance it could have fried the CPU? (i thought that the P4s would shut them selves down to avoid heat damage) Could it have been damaged anyway? thus, giving way to random reboots?

or, i was thinking it could be the mobo? i remember he was having problems with is USB ports before... (sign of a bad mobo?)

I've been working on this all day, but no luck. If anyone here could give me some suggestions, I would really appreciate it!

thanks.

1. Client has 4 workstations and 1 server, Windows XP Professional
2. Client has 2 workstations with AOL latest and greatest.
3. Cleint has 2 workstations without AOL running XP Home...as are the 2 workstations with AOL ... Same machines.
4. The 2 workstations without AOL access all wordprocessing files on the server just fine.
5. The 2 workstations with AOL installed take forever to access a shared folder.

I am needing to know what is going on here and how to let the two workstations running AOL 9.X access the shared folders in a timely manner. I understand AOL is not a business email client and is flakey at best in a business enviorment...

Any suggestions would be helpful as my cleint wants to have AOL on his workstations and is pressuring me.
