I'm in the market for a new router.  I want a hardware DMZ.  I currently have a NetGear ProSafe FVS338, which is fine except for it lacks a hardware DMZ.
I do not need VPN support.
The other feature I'm interested in is ease of setup.  It doesn't need to be dummy-proof (i.e.  I don't want a "wizard" to do the setup for me).   I just don't want to deal with configuration like what's required for a SonicWall, with a completely un-intuitive UI and setup.
And no bells and whistles that require subscriptions / fees, por favor.

Please only post responses based on your personal experience.  I can Google for routers on my own time... looking for actual real-life recommendation here.

I have a problem with my computer. I have Windows 7 ultimate and about two weeks ago after I updated my avast(tm) antivirus, my computer crashed on start-up. So I booted it in safe mode and through msconfig.exe I was able to isolate the problem and turn it off. Now however, I can't connect to the internet and everything I have tried so far to fix it has been proving fruitless. I have an idea on what to do but I can't seem to find the file I need. It seems I need an EAP.txt file, but I can't find it online. IF someone knows where to get it can you link it and walk me through how to replace it with my old one? I'm moving soon so I need this done ASAP

My team has had reoccurring issue with usb peripherals, ( keyboard, mouse, web cams) stop working.  Event logs ID 219 indicates several "Kernel-PnP" events  in which  drivers fail to load.  

Root hubs in device manager states  driver failed to load for hardware because previous instance of the driver is still in memory (code  38)    

the issue  does not reoccur once Citrix receiver is uninstalled.
so has anyone seen this issue and knows definitively why would Citrix receiver cause a fault.

Environment  - Win7 Ent -x64

Hi all,     I use a Softphone (SIP) and a headset for making calls on my surface pro.      Randomly the caller can no longer hear me.     If I press mute twice on my headset it is restored and they can hear me.    So far I have tried 3 headsets and 2 difference software (SIP Clients).    I also tested using the dock or plugged directly in.     It keeps happening in all scenarios.     I have another user using the same software including windows versions and they do not experience this issue.   So now I am assuming this is a surface pro bug.    I have found a few articles related to random microphone mutes in windows 10 and applied all fixes.     But for me the problem remains.    Any one else experience this problem?

My Apple mouse moves fine horizontally across my 30" Thunderbird monitor, but I have to lift and move it too much for vertical motion (e.g., to move the pointer from the bottom to the top of the screen). This isn't a problem when I use my Logitech mouse. I've researched online and found virtually nothing about the issue.

I've made every available change to the mouse configuration, including maximum acceleration, but nothing affects helps.

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

Had a call from a Garage they use this old 486 for a wheel alignment machine.

Today they have a bios error saying replace battery.  F1 to skip, then it throws a cd drive error and stops.

Is there a way to bypass the cd drive so it will boot?  I have never worked on anything that old. :(

If anyone can assist let me know.

I want to create a program or a service which keeps an eye on the usb ports, and sends an email when the usb keyboard would be removed or tampered with!

Can it be done in the task scheduler, so that an usb event kicks off the task of sending an email to a certain address, in an some email application ?

Or do You know off an utility which can do it?

We have a shop that uses Topaz Model: T-LBK462-BSB-R signature pads in a Remote Desktop environment. We have 7 total signature pads and two of the pads freeze up and stop working when the software tries to call the signature pad on COM9. The other 5 signature pads are configured exactly the same and are working with no issues.

The OS that the pads are working on are either Windows 7 x64 or Windows 10 x64 and can't seem to figure out why the other two pads freeze up and stop working. I can login to the remote server once and use the DEMO software remotely and it works, but every time after that we have to force-close the software and re-establish the connection.

Just wondering if anyone knows why these two pads may be timing out and not working, or why the COM ports become non-responsive. I've tried swapping computers, and signature pads and the pads work on other computers with no issues. I have the latest USB drivers and BIOS and have wiped and reloaded windows to try and resolve the issue.

I did some testing on the server with HyperTerminal and found that I wasn't able to connect to COM9 right away, but after I run "change port /query" on the server in the command prompt, I was able to connect to COM9 with HyperTerminal with no issues and run a test on the sig pad. Why would running "change port /query" make the redirected port available?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

My client gives me the VM specs below and ask for recommendation.

Small VM – 2 x vCPU, 2GB vRAM, 50GB Storage+
Medium VM – 4 x vCPU, 4GB vRAM, 50GB Storage+
Large VM – 4 x vCPU, 8GB vRAM, 50GB Storage+
X-Large VM – 8 x vCPU, 16GB vRAM, 50GB Storage+

May I know which spec should be used for a general system that contains front end web application (ASP.NET), a backend database (MSSQL) and some backend running process (ETL, etc)?

I believe the data grow is low based on the no of users, but they would need to store some digital documents into the system.

If all in one box (I know this is a bad practice), which spec should I prefer?
What if we got several VMs (one for web/ app server, one for database), what spec should I prefer?

Any thoughts from you? Thank you.

On Demand Webinar - Networking for the Cloud Era

This webinar discusses:
-Common barriers companies experience when moving to the cloud
-How SD-WAN changes the way we look at networks
-Best practices customers should employ moving forward with cloud migration
-What happens behind the scenes of SteelConnect’s one-click button

The computer in question is a Dell OptiPlex 390 with Windows 7 SP1.  The "sound card" is Conexant HD Audio

Suddenly, The transcription software will not play through headphones.  Unplug the headphones and it plays through the system speaker.  Everything else plays through the headphones, just not this one program.  

Again, streaming radio, windows sounds, mp3s play to the speakers AND the headphones, if they are plugged in, but the transcription program ONLY plays through the speakers, not the headphones.  

I've tried it on the front and back jacks.

I'm totally confused, nowhere I'm getting proper information about how to start programming in AS/400.
What are the software & hardware requirements of AS/400? What should I know about AS/400 to become a programmer in that?
How can I do JAVA, C, C++, C#, .net programs using AS/400, or is there any other way?

I will be pleased, if anyone could provide a detailed information.
