  1. i can't believe this topic is still active , but i'll toss in another vote for pidgin
  2. kbps <> KB/s :: The reason I bring that up is when you look at a download progress bar, they show the speed in KB/s which is not kbps. This way you have a more accurate representation. if you use the 80% rule, that equates to 46KB/s on a 460kbps connection. So they might be limiting http or ftp traffic
  3. it's nearly impossible to get 56kbps while surfing. 56kbps = 7KB/s, so you should see throughput at less than 7KB/s on your dial-up connection. for gprs, at 460kbps, you should be getting 57KB/s, so it's possible they're limiting your download speed note that kilobits per second (kbps) does not equal kilobytes (KB/s). Take kilobits and divide by 8 and you'll get kilobytes.
  4. if you don't want to use hamachi, your best bet is to use open vpn http://openvpn.net/
  5. you could use Hamachi, or you could configure the servers to be point to point VPN servers (via PPTP which is built in to windows).
  6. i tend to agree with you. that if you re-format, you release the license to be used again as I believe the license is for active installations. in any event, have you checked here for info? http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/resourc...ol/default.mspx
  7. i'm sure other readers with more experience in this situation will chime in, but the only way I can think of is to alter each user's hosts file and put the hostname and IP in so it resolves. I assume your workstations are on MS Windows since you are posting your question on this website
  8. Now interrestingly, this is the opposite case of what has been asked last weeks. Share the cable connection. this is what i was referring to... couldn't find this thread when i posted earlier
  9. as i believe has been discussed on these forums before, you can't do ICS over wireless... that said, if you go to the properties of your bluetooth connection on the pc connected to the internet, and you see a checkbox that says "share this connection" then you can do it. otherwise, you can't http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/e...2b14771033.mspx
  10. do you have another sound card you can test? in all likelihood you have a bad sound card, but it's tough to say.
  11. +1 EAC. easy to use, quick and accurate. I only rip to MP3 via lame though. I must not be as sophisticated
  12. do you have a bad sound card? what's the brand/model? onboard or PCI?
  13. totally agree with cluberti... even if you can get ICS to work, the general consensus is that it's unreliable, and far less efficient than a wired/wireless router. good luck if you can get it working.
  14. give this a shot Internet Connection Sharing: http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/xp_ics/
  15. couldn't you just set the folder properties to "hidden"? Then at least you wouldn't have to see it
  16. here's another good reference for NAS speeds http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/component/o..._nas/Itemid,190
  17. RIS? I think that's still valid. you could create an unattended image to install remotely. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa967394.aspx http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832017
  18. stupid question... is this server sitting on a DMZ? is telnet open between the DMZ and the rest of your network?
  19. what is the exact error message you are receiving? that will give us a better idea what XP is complaining about.
  20. does that usb mobile phone connection show up in your network connections? If it does, and you go to properties, do you have a sharing tab? If the sharing tab doesn't exist, you can't share that internet connection. period.
  21. it doesn't by default, but there's an add-in that adds that functionality http://www.wegotserved.co.uk/windows-home-server-add-ins/
  22. http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/e...2b14771033.mspx does that help?
  23. honestly, unless you're running a 5 year old PC, a hardware nic will not really help you out. There's not just enough going on that today's processors will take a major performance hit by the network stack. Yeah, you might see a 1-3 fps increase, but it's probably not worth it. That said, i'd answer what nitro asked and then we'll see for sure
