    I agree with Trip and den: best protection sits between the keyboard and the chair. nitroshift
  3. Windows XP is still king

    It doesn't really matter. @Dibya You clearly don't know what you're talking about. Just having a consumer grade router between your PC and the internet doesn't mean you have a hardware firewall, because in these devices all network traffic goes down the kernel path which is purely software. Also, running the official firmware is even more of a privacy concern as it rarely gets updated, leaving vulnerabilities open. Please see various CVE's that surfaced after D-Link released the firmware for your devices: https://cve.mitre.org/data/downloads/allitems.html. A hardware firewall on the other hand is a separate device that you hook up between your PC and the router that connects you to the internet. Please do some reading before posting non-sense: http://bfy.tw/9NbI nitroshift
  4. Windows XP is still king

    May I ask what router is that and what firmware is it running (official or open source)? nitroshift
  5. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    It really depends what you are using it for. I gave up on Windows at the office some 2 years ago, using a Linux flavor specifically designed for network administrators (Kali Linux) and I must say I don't miss anything. It has all the tools and programs I need to get my job done. I'm only running Windows at home on one PC where I (sometimes) get the time to play. nitroshift

    Start ---> Run, services.msc and check if any of the Remote Desktop services are set as disabled. If there's any, enable and start it. nitroshift
  11. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    This is really crossing the line, now businesses are subjected to this nonsense? I can only imagine how smoothly that will go. (at least WSUS is safe... for now) I foresee *massive* court actions. nitroshift
  12. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    It does. nitroshift
  13. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    Since we are talking about routers running third-party firmware, I would advise getting one that is supported by OpenWRT. OpenWRT is much more up-to-date when it comes to kernel and packages versions and offers great flexibility in terms of network configuration. I personally have 2 WRT1900AC's (running the latest 4.4 kernel) plus a few other development boards sitting behind an Ubiquity Edgerouter Lite that actually handles my PPPoE gigabit internet connection and they all work just fine. @NoelC Should you need more info, you can usually find me on freenode IRC server on channel #openwrt, same username as here. nitroshift

  15. I'd recommend you format the disk as ext4 and install samba on the nas. nitroshift
  16. All's Quiet - So We Wait

    Just chiming in... I wonder what happened with Copenhagen concept Cullen Dudas presented a few years ago. Microsoft, did you make him an offer to lead your UI designers team yet? nitroshift

  21. Accessing a shared printer in Windows 7 64-bit

    You may try to download and manually install the Vista x86 driver if it is available. nitroshift EDIT: I've searched and there is no Vista driver either. Ran out of options.
  22. No wireless browsing after sleep

    Maybe BFE service is set as delayed start. My 0.02$. nitroshift
