  1. most of the time, you don't have to worry about touching the name servers or dealing with them in any way. If you go with a decent host, http://www.msfnhosting.com/ for example, they allow an unlimited number of subdomains (ftp.example.org), and they'll worry about the IP addressing for you. Some will allow you to make additional entries into the DNS server, but it isn't required.

    hope that addresses your question

  2. Forum Rules:

    1. This is not a warez site! Links/Requests to warez and/or illegal material (porn, cracks, serials, etc..) will not be tolerated. Discussion of circumventing WGA/activation/timebombs/keygens or any other illegal activity will also not be tolerated. You will be banned without notice.

    this is not the site to ask that question

  3. I use a Cables-To-Go 4 port USB KVM switch at my desk in my office (which is also my test lab). Works nicely, has 3 USB ports right on the front of it so I can access my flash drive from any computer I'm using at the moment, or use a USB keyboard and/or mouse

    using a KVM to pass audio though has a tendency to really degrade the quality of the sound if that's something you care about.

    I think IOgear makes a 4-port KVM w/ audio and USB

  4. i'm not super good at linux, but i'm pretty certain that if you're getting a IP, that means the DHCP request from your network card is timing out.

    Really stupid question: When you're connecting to the router, you're going from a NIC on your PC to one of the 4 LAN ports on the back of the router, correct? You're not plugging into the WAN port, are you? The WAN port should be empty until you get working firmware on the device.

  5. when i've run into probs on my v4 router, usually holding in the reset button for 30s "fixes" whatever i broke.

    in any event, hopefully someone else has an idea. my next step would probably try to upgrade directly to linksys firmware. if you can get that installed, then i'd try flashing to tomato. going from 1 3rd party firmware to another has never really sat well w/ me.

  6. so right now, what do you have? do you have a web interface and no internet, or do you have no interface and no internet?

    if you have an interface, upgrade to linksys firmware first, then if you want, upgrade to dd-wrt (many people's choice) or tomato (many other people's choice).

    If you have no interface and no internet, did you do the reset where you hold the reset button in for 30s w/ the power cord disconnected?

  7. create a shortcut with the following location:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office<insert version number here>\OUTLOOK.EXE” outlook:contacts

    i.e. I have office 2007, so to link to my contact list, here's the shortcut I'd create

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE” outlook:contacts

  8. get a prosumer class router as cluberti suggested (sonicwall, watchguard, even the gaming router by D-Link might suffice). That'll handle your main networking tasks, like DHCP, QoS, etc...

    when you say you want to filter/ban MAC's, does that mean when someone tries to connect a PC to this network you want to have the DHCP server check to see if that MAC should be allowed an IP? What's the purpose of this? Wouldn't the banning built into whatever game you're going to play suffice? Banning at that level also wouldn't stop anyone from just assigning themselves a static IP in the local space and operating normally.

    as far as server goes for the game, I'd look at a quad-core (depending on the number of games you want to run simultaneously) server by Dell, HP, etc... load up with as much RAM as you can. If you can run all your software on a x64 based system, get at least 4GB if not more. Windows Server 2003 Standard would be fine for an OS. You'd really only use it to host the game software, and maybe file sharing with latest game-specific releases should you desire.
