I have 3 computers running on a linksys router. They all run Windows XP Pro SP2. The computer I am having problems with just happens to be the fastest computer out of the bunch.

This seems like an easily answered question, but I can't seem to find an answer for it anywhere. I need to change the default temp directory to another HDD because the partition on my C drive isn't large enough to handle large files. I have multiple user accounts on this computer which means there a...

I need a more powerful router with a larger NAT table, so I was told to buy one of these mini-pc's and it could be my router. Unfortunately I have no experience with making my own router as well as any unix/linux based OS. I would be willing to learn if it wasn't too time consuming though. I am pret...

you need a crossover cable, looks just like your average ethernet cable but the wires are a little different. You can buy them on ebay, or local pc store.

For this discussion to remain open, please keep it to how to open multiple ports or which routers may be best suited to handle it.

I can't really say I guess, the lights never change on the router or the cable modem when it looses the connection but if my memory serves me right I just unplug the router and the nplug it back in and it goes back to normal.

Post Posted: March 25th, 2005, 9:28 pm

lol alright thanks, the ports are TCP & UDP..apparently they have to be open for something :? The netgear I have now seems to work ok until I use p2p programs..then it seems to get bogged down and stops working until i reset it.

Post Posted: March 23rd, 2005, 10:16 am

a few file sharing programs, AIM, few others.. eMule for example needs about 4-5 open ports per computer, so thats about 10 ports right there. I suppose If I could use the same ports for multiple programs that would work..can I even do that?

Post Posted: March 23rd, 2005, 9:52 am

I see, hm..Do you know of a way to increase the amount of forwarded ports? atm mine is limited to 20 ports, if I could surpass this restriction I'd have no problems. Thanks!

My Radeon vid card freezes when I Alt Tab out of a game. It doesn't do it everytime I Alt Tab but I'd say 1/5 times it will. When I say freeze I don't mean the game freezes, I mean it turns to a black screen and then eventually will restart the computer (don't know why). I have the latest drivers.
