  1. If only we had fast internet like the Japanese: 66mbps!
  2. At work we are currently upgrading ALL the company's computers and I took a glance at the script to see what they were doing. Though I don't have the exact thing in front of me, I remembered bits and pieces of it and found something through Google that is similar and might help you (listed below since there are multiple codes on that page). Pete Roper sent in printui.dll commands The key technique is rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry. 1) This installs printer quietly rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /q /n\\servername\printername 2) This deletes the networked printer from the machine being logged onto, and does so quietly. rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dn /q /n\\servename\printername 3) This Sets the default printer rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /y /n\\servername\printername This looks very, very similar to the code at work, and at work whenever I re-run the code and choose a different default printer, the default printer changes like it's supposed to. Hope that helps!
  3. Thanks for the replies! My next question is: for roaming, do I buy another router (wrt54g) or an access point (wap54g)?
  4. How's the lighting on H2V? Is it a lot easier to see than Halo 2 was on the Xbox? I thought about picking up the game for my laptop (running WinXP MCE) but wasn't sure if it was worth it; I wanted to see if anyone else had attempted to run H2V on XP and the results of such an attempt.
  5. Where I work, we have seamless wireless all over both buildings and no matter where you go inside you're always connected to the same wireless network. I would like to set this up in my house. From what I've seen via Google (and please correct/add to anything I write below) it looks like the setup should be like this: When using multiple routers (I'll use two in my house) for the same network, make sure the SSID and encryption are the same. Make sure the channels don't overlap. Router one should use channel 1, and router two should use channel 6. I currently have a Linksys WRT54G; can I buy another WRT54G and use that as the second router, or do I need different hardware? Are there any other settings I need to change in order for this to work seamlessly? Thank you for your time!
  6. The movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix was so condensed I couldn't enjoy because I'd read the book prior to seeing the movie and knew all the parts they'd cut out, and that really bugged me. The acting was a bit better than the previous movies. The last part of the movie had some really cool special effects; it was fun watching the dueling. Other than that, I'll definately be at Borders Friday night to get my book. I've got a whole weekend to read.
  7. Saw this movie twice; once opening weekend and once the weekend after that. When I first heard Michael Bay was directing this movie, I thought all was lost. Then I saw this movie. Thankfully, he did NOT ruin Transformers. The movie, the graphics, the camera work, the acting, the music, Megan Fox - it was all awesome. I especially loved the military action and the car chases especially. The music that played during the car chase with the mustang and camero was a good choice and I had a blast watching that scene. And like the guy above me said, "Every movie needs more evil Mustangs. Every movie." There is nothing cooler than seeing a Decepticon Ford Mustang Police Car with "To punish and enslave" written on the side of the car. If you want to just have a good time and see some amazing specialFX, go see this movie!
  8. I know this is a really old thread, but I've been trying to solve this workgroup problem for a while on my Windows MCE 2005 HP laptop, and I finally found a solution tonight. Here's the note I wrote up for myself; I thought I'd share it with everyone else: HOW TO ADD WINDOWS MCE 200X TO A WORKGROUP 1. DOWNLOAD NETDOM.EXE 1.8: ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/reskit/nt4/x86/ 2. COPY THE NETDOM.EXE TO C:\%WINDIR%\SYSTEM32 3. CLICK START, RUN, TYPE 'CMD', THEN HIT ENTER 4. TYPE THIS: NETDOM MEMBER \\COMPUTERNAME /JOINWORKGROUP WORKGROUPNAME AND HIT ENTER. 5. THE RESULTS SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS: NetDom 1.8 @1997-98. Written by Christophe Robert - Microsoft. Querying domain information on computer \\COMPUTERNAME... Computer \\COMPUTERNAME is currently in workgroup OLDWORKGROUPNAME. Changing LSA primary domain information on computer \\COMPUTERNAME ... Updating trusted domain ... 6. REBOOT THE COMPUTER.
  9. Well, apparently another group beat Fallingleaf, releasing a patch/crack that lets users play Halo 2 on XP. Some people say it works, some say it doesn't. Don't know if I'm allowed to post it or not, but if you use google, you'll find it.
  10. Apparently, Falling Leaf Systems wants people to be able to play Halo 2 on XP, too! Here's the original article: http://nikon.bungie.org/news.html?item=18626
  11. Hmm, let me know what happens. I had a similar problem on a laptop I had to reformat. I got so fed up with trying to install Office that I installed OpenOffice.org instead!
  12. Another update: I switched the security on the Linksys to WEP 128-bit. Everything works like a charm. Apparently, there is something wrong with the WPA-PSK settings and it has to do with the two Zonet adapters. Thanks for your help! I will play around with the router and adapters a bit more and try to figure exactly what the problem is and will return with my findings.
  13. I've been working with someone on setting up their Dell AIO 964 machine, and everything works fine except for one small thing. First off, here's how the telephone system is set up: LANDLINE --> DELL 964 --> ANSWERING MACHINE/TELEPHONE (it's another AIO thing) Now, whenever you call the landline, the fax machine on the Dell is supposed to answer after 3 rings. If no fax is detected, then the Dell is supposed to let the answering machine pick up. Atleast that's what the manual says. Sadly, it does not work this way. Instead, when you call the house, after the third ring, the caller gets the annoying fax sound and is never forwarded to the answering machine. I found a way around this so that the answering machine will pick up first; I just set the answering machine to pick up at 4 rings, and the fax machine to pick up at 5 rings. But then what happens if someone sends a fax.... So my question is, why won't the Dell AIO forward the call to the answering if there is no fax detected? Everything is connected correctly. The manual doesn't mention having to change anything in the software to enable this. I did look on Dell's website and there is a firmware upgrade, but I want to know if there is anything else I can try in case that doesn't work. If you need anymore info or if I didn't explain this clear enough, please let me know. Thanks!
  14. No. There is a pond on one side of the house, and neighbor next door, but their house is a "normal" distance away. 20-30 FT? I'm really bad at judging distance. I switched to WEP for tonight. Ironically, it's kicked off the laptop a few times, so I edited the wireless profile on the laptop and it seems to be running ok, for now. So far, so good! Just wish the WPA would work, if that's what it is.
  15. Actually, no, didn't think about changing the security settings.... On the box, it says the Zonet adapters support WPA-PSK TKIP....but why would they keep getting kicked off? My Netgear router only supports WEP 128-bit encryption, so that's the new setting I put on the Linksys. I will let you know how things go. Thanks!
  16. Well, being as I am quite the Halo fanboy and the Halo 3 trailer was released at E3 this month, I figured I'd like the Master Chief grace my desktop for a bit. Yes, I know, it's so original. My thanks to Bungie.net for the wallpaper. Haha.
  17. Ah, security? Ok, that's a good start! Have you any idea if there is a technical term I can use to describe what is happening to make my search easier?
  18. Firmware version: 4.20.7 Wireless Security: WPA-PSK w/ TKIP and MAC address filtering. And no, don't use BitTorrent. Yes, it's been quite the pain. Yes, the router worked beautifully for the short time it did....It's just SO weird it's always the same two desktops that get kicked. Even back when both desktops had Netgear adapters, they both kept getting kicked off. The laptop NEVER has any problems!
  19. I recently did a clean install of Windows XP Pro on my computer and everything was working fine. Yesterday, I did a Microsoft update and installed the latest patches. One of those patches I had apparently missed, so I installed that one, too. Since the update, whenever I go to a site that has a movie file/flash file embedded in the page, I have to click the object once as if I'm selecting it, then I have to click it again in order to be able to use the controls. I took a screen shot, and hopefully it'll make sense of what I'm trying to say. In the screen shot, I am watching the "10 Things I Hate About Commandments" trailer (heh) on College Humor. I positioned my mouse pointer over the movie as it began playing, and if you look closely there is a small checkered border around the entire movie. This is what happens everytime I go to play a video/flash file. I tried using ImageShack to upload the screenshot, but I keep getting errors. Click here to see the image. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? If so, how do I fix it?
  20. Well, I guess it's time for an update! To make a long story short, Linksys replaced my v.3 WRT54G with a v.4. This new router (the v.4) ran quite well for about 2-3 months; no complaints from me. It had the latest firmware and was ready to go. Then at the beginning of this month, the router started acting funny and seemed much slower than it was. I have a total of 3 computers on the wireless network. 1 is a laptop with it's built in wireless 802.11g NIC, and the other two are desktop computers, both using the Zonet ZEW2500P USB 802.11g wireless adapters.. The two desktops keep getting kicked off almost constantly now; however, the laptop stays connected and has no problems. Because this linksys router has been acting up, I switched back to my trusty Netgear MR814 v2 and haven't had any problems. This kicking off of the desktop computers is the same problem I had with the Linksys WRT54G v.3 that I sent back to get replaced. Why is it only the Linksys products having this problem? As a side note, I kept pinging the Linksys router when it was acting funny today; here's what I got: Pinging with 32 bytes of data: Request timed out.

  21. Haha, we're lucky it's coming out on Xbox 360; it's taken so darn long!
  22. According to this article on Wikipedia, Halo 2 will soon be available for the PC. I have neither an XBox nor an XBox 360. I have played Halo on the PC, but haven't played Halo 2 on the XBox. I'm still trying to figure out the storyline to Halo 2, and what all the fuss is about concerning the ending. I'll just have to see it for myself, I guess.
  23. The Halo 3 Trailer is now up for download on Bungie's website. What more needs to be said?
  24. LOL! That was brilliant.... OS X....right...
