Networking is the process of connecting computing devices, peripherals and terminals together through a system that uses wiring, cabling or radio waves that enable their users to communicate, share information and interact over distances. Often associated are issues regarding operating systems, hardware and equipment, cloud and virtual networking, protocols, architecture, storage and management.

The title feels pretty click-baity.

If there isn't an actual way to change the priority, then why is that the title?

Yes.  VPX.

With that said, be conscious of the throughput.  Regardless of model HTTP Compression is
Up to 0.75 Gbps for all VPX models

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.

Network ports are the threads that hold network communication together. They are an essential part of networking that can be easily ignore or misunderstood, my goals is to show those who don't have a strong network foundation how network ports operate.

This is the first one of a series of articles I’ll be writing to address technical issues that are always referred to as network problems. The network boundaries have changed, therefore having an understanding of how each piece in the network  puzzle works will help troubleshoot any network issue.

In a recent article here at Experts Exchange, I discussed my nine-month sandbox testing of the Windows 10 Technical Preview, specifically with respect to running Nuance's PaperPort 14.5. I received a private message from a fellow PaperPort user who read the article asking me if I'm aware that Windows 10 is using my computer to help distribute itself. I was not aware of it!

Perhaps I missed this during my nine-month experimentation with the W10 Technical Preview, or maybe Microsoft added that feature only in the official release (Build 10240), but when I checked it out, it is true. I was very surprised to find that W10 is, in essence, using my PC as a peer-to-peer server in distributing updates and apps, and I figured that other Experts Exchange members may also not be aware of it. So I decided to write this article, which also shows how to disable it.

Sidebar:  During the article review process, an EE Page Editor (MASQ) pointed out that this feature was introduced in March with Build 10036 — I did, indeed, miss it! My thanks to MASQ for this information, and for providing a link to Leaked Windows 10 build hints at peer-to-peer patching, an interesting article about it in The Register.

First, I'll explain how to find the feature (the screenshots in this article are from Version 10.0, Build 10240, created via an automatic update from the Technical Preview version of the Windows Insider Program):

So, does turning off WUDO "Updates From More Than One Place" stop my system from distributing Windows 10 and updates?  Or, just stop it from getting updates from unknown sources?

Hi MtHolly,
Turning it off does both — (1) stops your system from getting updates and apps from other PCs (meaning it gets them just from Microsoft) and (2) stops your system from distributing/sending updates and apps to other PCs. Regards, Joe

We recently endured a series of broadcast storms that caused our ISP to shut us down for brief periods of time. After going through a multitude of tests, we determined that the issue was related to Intel NIC drivers on some new HP desktop computers we'd recently purchased.

The Problem

The broadcast storm would occur if the desktop PC went into sleep mode for an extended period of time. We had one PC push out several gigs of network traffic in a matter of seconds. Strangely, we had eight new PC's all on a configuration bench and all were in sleep mode but only three of them were causing the storm. The randomness of the problem made it that much more difficult to diagnose.

This problem first popped up around a year ago with the Intel i217-LM NIC drivers. Some users on a Cisco message board were suggesting that the solution was to disable IPv6, but this did not work. In fact, we disabled IPv6 across our whole network thinking this would stop the broadcast storms but we got another one the very next day. What's so odd about all this is that you have the leading manufacturer of PC's (HP) using a motherboard with one of the leading manufacturers of NIC drivers (Intel) and all running the world's most popular desktop PC OS (Windows) and the problem stil persists.

The Solution

Upgrading the NIC drivers is the only solution here. However, you can't count on Windows Update to give it to you. This means you nead to visit Intel's site

Today sees the launch of a new case study, focusing on BYOD technologies we have been working with for some time now.  But with the advent of 802.11ac wireless technologies and the story behind our landmark developments, we would like to share this case study with you.

The Challenge

Technology is a vital component to boosting the opportunities for learning and teaching across the schools. Having run a number of laptop programmes for students, the schools were finding this approach to computer provision more and more inadequate. For students in particular, the preference was to allow them internet access for their own devices, on school premises. With a significant number of pupils boarding at the three schools, this could also have a positive impact on pupil welfare.

"We found the laptop programmes were simply unsuitable. The pupils ended up using devices they didn’t like, or weren’t familiar with and in the absence of internet for pupils own devices, we were inadvertently forcing them to use things like mobile hotspots, which seemed counterproductive. We could see that opening the network up and permitting the use of pupils own devices, would satisfy both requirements" explains Adrian McGarry, Director of ICT at Licensed Trade Charity.

Pursuing this approach, would essentially mean a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policy would be adopted by each school. To make such an approach work, Wi-Fi access would need to be consistent across each school campus. In …
