>no stupid questions thread
Here I go. I'm getting a momentary drop in my network every five seconds. It shows on both upload and download traffic. No disconnection announcements or warnings. Happens to all traffic: torrents, youtube, ddl. Pic related.
D-Link DIR-850L wi-fi router (firmware is updated)
EnGenius AC1200 USB wireless adaptor
I use the EnGenius utility to connect and I'm on a 5GHz channel.
When I Google this I just get posts with people complaining about disconnections. I haven't figured out how to phrase my search to get more relevent results.
What would /g/ do?
>>Direct connect? Wifi only?
Haven't tried a direct connection. PC and phone plug (DSL) are in diff rooms. I own a 25' cable but it's on loan to a friend. I'll have to move and set up the tower to check this. Not impossible but I'd rather check easier shit first.
I don't believe so. It's maybe 15 feet from router to pc, with one drywall wall in between. Signal strength is strong both in the EnGenius utility and my tablet's Wifi Analyzer app, for both g and ac channels that the router is using. Although there is a weird double-signal on my g broadcast. Pic related, it's the blue and green on channel 9. Sometimes they merge into one, sometimes they look like this.
The app does show the ac signal dropping out completely and then returning. The g broadcast is constant with only slight variance in strength.
>>Antenna strength issue?
Signal strength is set to medium for g, strong for ac.
No idea. App doesn't sow any other channels in use near mine on ac.
Possibly. I'm using a short usb cord on the adaptor so I could pitch the adaptor up and turn it to better face the router.
I don't know.
I switched to my g channel and am seeing the same drops. So nevermind the app not reporting g dropping out.

What am I missing? According to the motherboard it's stuck on "early cpu initialization" what does that even mean? Did I forget a wire, is something plugged into the wrong place?
I will once I eliminate the router as the cause. It's looking like it's time for a direct connection to the modem. bbl
Make sure the plug from the tower into the mobo is all the way in. The one in mine is long and heavy and if I move the tower too much the damn thing will back out and have only a partial connection. Sometimes the pc won't boot, sometimes it will but after 30 minutes or so will suddenly shut down while I'm using it. At first I was freaked that Windows was corrupted but nope, it was that fucking plug.
No. Look at this pic. The view is cramped but the case (I said tower before, should have said case) has a plug to the mobo and a bunch of little plugs. The little plugs are for things like the power and reset switches. The big plug with the string on it is for... something and goes into F_USB30 (USB 3.0/2.0 Header according to the manual). This is the plug that can sometimes back out of the oskcet and cause my boot/shutdown surprises. That's why I put the string on it.
I've connect directly to the router (figured that was the next step with the modem after that) and the problem vanished. I started a big download from Mega, at first with qbittorent running at the same time and then I paused qbittorrent at the end and the ddl straightened out. No drops. Looks like something's happening to the broadcast on both bands. Is there a way to check if this is the result of settings?
I was about to do that and decide to check the transfer one more time. But this time without qbittorrent running. I started the Mega download again and it was smooth. Then I started up qbittorrent and the drops began immedaitely, even before it could start using much bandwidth. So it looks like qbittorrent is somehow bitching either the adaptor or the broadcast.
Also note that the pic in >>52335751 is with qbittorrent running and then, when upload drops, with it switched off. Whatever disruption qbittorrent is causing only seems to manifest on wi-fi and it's affecting both g and ac broadcasts from the router.
So I'm making a large archive for my stuff, basically just threw it all into one folder and am using rar5 with a 32MB library
Anything I can do to speed this up? Should I just offload the work to my secondary PC? The stuff isn't mostly compressible I just one a few rar files so it's easier to transport in FAT32 formatted stuff
It's about 50GB in total
Also what's the best way to archive stuff? Is there a program that will automatically resize images to a smaller size with minimal quality loss?
I can't even try to delete them all without explorer locking up
I picked up a ps2 at a thrift store but don't have a tv in my room. I've already got a sound solution that will take RCA red/white cables, but nothing to get the video into my monitor (well, i found an ancient capture card lying around but its max output is 320x240 so fuck that)
I know i've seen adapter cords that have RCA on one end and VGA on the other, would that work to plug the RCA video output into one of my monitors (like i know you can do s-video to RCA with just a little adapter), or do I need an actual like, converter box
My buddy had an iPhone 5c and got a new one because the touchscreen is fucking up. He said he's sell it to me for 50 bucks, which would be a huge upgrade from my Lumia 520.
Sometimes the touchscreen works fine, no issues, others it will detect the touch at the wrong place or even become completely unresponsive.
Is this a software issue or a hardware issue? He says it started after a recent update he installed but he's also not known for taking good care of his stuff. However aside from some scuffs on the back it looks good as new.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an old netbook of mine, after selecting "Install Ubuntu" it just freezes.
I've tried with Server 15 & 14 + Desktop 14, any ideas?
I'm trying to buy a surface 3 off of Craigslist. This is one of the pictures attached, which shows he must have installed a bootleg windows at some point (from Maher's Digital World?). Will this affect my ability to do a factory reset on the device? Could I still get windows 10 free?
So I have a dual monitor setup. Everything is fine when using just the two monitors. I also have my TV hooked up to my computer for Netflix and whatnot.
Whenever I cut my TV on, the taskbar on my primary monitor is blank. It remains that way even after cutting the TV off. How do I fix it? It's not a major problem but it's annoying.
Now that I have your attention: Why shouldnt I put a PCI wireless card in my desktop, as opposed to running cat 6 to it?
>Will this affect my ability to do a factory reset on the device?
I don't know how exactly the Surface works, but I'd assume that it resets back to a fresh Windows 8.1 Pro if you do that.
>Could I still get windows 10 free?
Yes. As long as the current Windows install is considered genuine, you can get your free upgrade.
To clarify, I say "considered" genuine here because it doesn't matter if it's pirated or not. The only thing that matters here is pic related.
Stability, speed, ping.
If these three words are not enough to make you not do something stupid, there's no hope for you.
What about the minimal installer, have you tried that ?
I don't know if it will make a difference, but it may be worth trying.
Speed on wireless is supposedly going to surpass 1gbps with the next (upcoming) generation, but certainly not with current hardware. But even if you consider this, CAT6 cables support 10gbps provided you have the proper hardware for it.
Stability and latency on wireless will never be as good as a wired connection due to the nature of wireless connections.
>Tried to install a 64bit OS on 32bit hardware
Well then you found your problem. I'd still recommend going with a minimal install anyway, as you only get what you need with that. Provided you don't have a third world internet connection, it'll only take a few minutes.
/r/space users are saying there's humans in this photo, but I can't find any. Are they seeing something that isn't there or am I blind?
you're lucky in that the ps2 can do rgb out through component, so yes, assuming you could hook it up to a tv to set the option in the first place, you can buy a component -> vga adapter and hook it up to a monitor without a conversion box
I may be able to talk him into it, I know he bumped me up on permissions. And also is there a way to do a ruby implementation of the server? Sorry not very knowledgeable about IRC
>And also is there a way to do a ruby implementation of the server?
Have you even looked up how to host an IRC server in the first place ?
Again I don't know a lot about IRC, but I have seen some talk about Ruby and its something I've been looking into learning as a first language, if it can't be done that way that's fine, just asking. Also why I came to a /SQT/ instead of creating a whole new one. I just need some direction to good resources and basic information. I really appreciate any help anyone can provide as I don't know a lot on this topic.
Will support muh' One Plus 2 pic related?
>OTG Support since OxygenOS 2
>I want to buy it but i'm not sure
can anyone name this server, or even just the product line?
shitty photo I know.
thank you for your time.
>tl;dr USB ports aren't working
Few weeks ago my USB ports stopped working. I currently have my SD card, USB drive and my phone plugged into the laptop. It's still charges my phone but nothing shows up on screen.
I wanted to install Windows again so I deleted most of the programs that may cause it. Also checked online. I already tried removing and reinstalling the drivers for the USB-controller and Universal Serial Bus Controller at the bottom there with no succes.
In return I can give photography, film and fitness advice if you like.
Have a 500gb hard drive in my pc. It just has movieson it
Windows is installed on an ssd.
I remmove the 500gb to replace it with a new 1tb.
Boot up the pc
Windows failed to start
Recent hardware change
Replace the old hard drive back in
Windows failed to start
Recent hardware change.
The DIR-850L is an enclosed unit. Only way to adjust the antenna(s) is to turn the can.
Was the 500gb hooked up when Windows was installed. Sometimes Windows can be retarded and write the bootmgr on a diff disk than the root. Google to find out how to move it to the root.
I dont see how anything bu the ssd is a required device. And bios is showing that both are plugged in
What's the name of that program used to activate cracked Windows and MS Office? I had it but accidentally let MalwareBytes delete it.
>I only have a windows 7 disc, though. Will it still work for windows 10?
i don't see how it would. you don't even need a disk in win10. just go into the troubleshoot thing from uefi
I asked because in 7, i remeber you needed the disc for it. Well, im in the uefi but cant find shit for troubleshooting
Why doesn't Linux sync file transfers onto progress bars on the screen? There's a substantial lag time between the OS telling me that a transfer is finished and the point where the transfer truly is being finished writing onto the disk.
It seems awfully dangerous, especially to newbies who don't realize that this is happening.
Fucking hell. I just ended up unplugging everything and plugging it back in. Boots fine with the original 500gb hdd in there.
Now, do i have to format this drive before yanking it to put in the new one? Or am i gonna have the same issue again?
figured out the issue.
msdia80.dll was installed on that 500gb drive.
copied it over to:
>C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\VC\msdia80.dll
then opened CMD as admin and ran this:
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\VC\msdia80.dll"
leave the quotes.
Probably a really dumb question.
Why is it when I search for r9 380 on Newegg, all these different brands of the same card come up? I thought there was only one Radeon R9 380 but there's like over a dozen different versions.
Because different manufacturers and models.
Long story short, AMD makes the GPU itself, and the different manufacturers buy the chips from AMD to put them on complete graphics cards.
The differences in all the different models lie in heatsink design, factory overclocks, power delivery, and sometimes the quality of the GPU itself.
