  1. Yep. You just need to plug in the Ethernet cable from the DSL modem into the Uplink port and make sure that the Uplink/Normal button is set for Uplink. By the way, why the 16C. Are you using the coaxial port at all? Just curious.
  2. Do you need something that will retreive the active user for many machines at once, or are you just looking to perform the command occassionally.

    KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Filesystem In the right pane, look for the value named NtfsMftZoneReservation. If the value doesn't exist, you'll need to add it. Select New | DWORD Value from the Edit menu. The new value will appear in the right pane, prompting you for a value name. Type NtfsMftZoneReservation and press [Enter]. Double-click the new value. You'll then see the Edit DWORD Value screen. The default value for this key is 1. This is good for a drive that will contain relatively few large files. Other options include: * 2—Medium file allocation * 3—Larger file allocation * 4—Maximum file allocation
  4. Back to your question. The conventional method for getting IP information including MAC addresses in a large network is to use a quality Network Scanner. Now, to solve your problem, just go to this link and download MAC Address retrieval application. http://www.youngzsoft.net/cc-get-mac-address/download.htm
  5. ok, i might just try it again. is there any fool proof guide on how to set it up, with the right permissions and stuff? @compster: maybe ill try this too. thank you for bringing it up. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Here's a decent link to setup information: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/n...up_03may16.mspx

    Please help

    I had this problem once before also. Thanks for the quick reply.
  7. Go to the command line an type nbtstat -A <IP of remote computer>. This will return all of the NetBIOS names registered on the computer, one of which is the username.
  8. Remote Desktop Web Connection -- there isn't anything else that meets your requirements
  9. Microsoft's OEM license is what makes it illegal. It's an OEM license, not a retail. I think the Dell OEM installation queries the BIOS during install to determine if it is a Dell or not.
  10. Move the command which deletes the Install directory to a point later on in your BAT file so that you can see exactly what is crashing it. Use the PAUSE command in several places until you track it down. If you still can't find it, post the file.
  11. I'd first reoptimize my Prefetch cache by running Bootvis. If you don't have Microsoft's Bootvis utility, it is still hosted in several places other than Microsoft. I'd then check My Computer/Performance/Advanced and make sure Processor Scheduling and Memory Usage is optimized for Programs If everything is still slow, review all of your critical performance parameters.
  12. FYI -- You'll always have NetBIOS, whether NetBIOS over IPX/SPX or over TCP. Are you looking to remove NetBEUI?
  13. Thanks for the suggestions..... I transparentized the background of the Avatar. I think it looks much better now.
  14. I remember when I paid US $800 for a 17' NEC MultiSync... I love monitor pricing now...
  15. The native GUI is the easiest like mentioned above... If for some reason you're still wondering, you can do this from within X-Teq XSetup
  16. That's a good point... Why not just upload the files you wish to share between the two computers to a public host. My cable-based ISP gives me 2GB of space for this kind of crap.
  17. Hmmmm... interesting. I know that this doesn't happen often, but I've seen that on a few occassions, that XP cannot kill a hung process. You can try modifying the WaitToKillAppTimeout and HungAppTimeout: 1. Start Regedit. 2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop 3. Select HungAppTimeout from the list on the right. 4. Right on it and select Modify. 5. Change the value to the new timeout value. 6. Select WaitToKillAppTimeout 7. Right-click on it and select Modify 8. Change the value to the new kill timeout. The Wait To Kill is the key one... And, changing the
  18. If you want to disable Security Center, just disable the Security Center service.
  19. Here's a little education for you. First of all, FAT32 is not secure. It has no security system. Can you assign permissions for one user of your Win98 machine to have read only access to a file and another user to have full control? No... Nuff said. As to relaibility, consider the following: FAT32 has just one copy of the boot sector, NTFS has two for greater RELIABILITY FAT32 has no security or encryption, NTFS has both for RELIABILITY FAT32 will be crushed with repeated GPF's that force you to hard reboot while the OS is running, NTFS has state of the art recoverability--thats why it is used on Windows NT,2000,2003 servers -- its for RELIABILITY FAT32 performance on large volumes is terrible, NTFS performance is top-shelf If you don't believe, just go over to Microsoft's site and search for FAT32 versus NTFS -- or go to NTFS.com. FAT32 is and extension of FAT16... It's old... Hence NTFS (New Technology File System)
  20. Let me know what you thing of this Avatar, Signature combo.
  21. You don't have to manually disable anything to remove log on locally from Power Users . This is all accomplished via Group Policy. When a workstation is a member of the domain, and someone logs on, the Default Domain Policy is applied to the workstation. If you remove the log on locally right from Power Users, each computer in the domain on the next logon will have that policy applied.
  22. What is your budget.... That dictates what options you have available
