    Windows cannot access\\

    Essentially yes it's the 'office' computer which is my desktop that won't allow my laptop to access it's files. Advanced Sharing settings are already set to allow full control to 'everyone' and 'homegroup' for every folder which does no good if I can't even access the computer let alone the...

    I have two computers the first is a laptop running win7 64-bit and my desktop is running the same. When I first set the network up they worked like a dream but ever since that first day it seems as if it works when it feels like it. They're part of the same workgroup, same homegroup, have...

    Solved: Ridiculously slow Wireless-N

    I started troubleshooting prior to your suggestion of me to not do so until I tried wired first. I assumed interference especially since I live in a large apartment complex.

    Solved: Using two different GPUs

    Not sure how much either but at least it will put the 280 to use instead of sitting on the shelf. Even a slight increase would still be beneficial I think. Especially when tessellation becomes more widely used in future games that way some work is taken off the 480. ESPECIALLY with the power...

    Wireless constantly dropping

    I've done some research and it seem to be a continuing problem with this particular adapter. It's happened to me before with other adapters/routers in the past just not to the extent this one is causing. I've tried setting the adapters power management to performance as well as the USB ports...

    Wireless constantly dropping

    I've already done all that you've suggested. The routers firmware is the latest same goes for all necessary software/drivers. I'd be more than willing to go wired if I could but I'm wireless because my apartment has one phone line into it (DSL) which is in the kitchen and my computer is in the...

    How Do We Fix Crappy U.S. Broadband?

    Part of the reason why the US's internet is so bad is because of the shear size of our country in area and the time in which we began to implement internet. If you take the countries that have well developed internet access to it's citizens it's because of a few reasons. The first being the...

    Solved: IE in W7 keeps bringing up mobile pages

    Yeah I eventually did that and fixed the problem I was only hoping not having to because resetting IE pretty much wipes all your setting. I don't use it as my primary browser so I gave in and did a full IE reset. After doing so I forgot to kill this thread. thanks tho.

    I have a Netgear Wireless N USB adapter with a Belkin Wireless N+ router. Every time I try to download a large file my connection drops every few minutes. I've already tried downloading the Bioshock 2 update 5 times but has failed every time due to my connection dropping. I've been...
