    Xbox live problems

    So I finally get an xbox 360 and try hooking up to xbox live and have a few "issues". Turns out the crappy ADSL router Xtra gave me a couple of years ago is incompatible. So I'm looking for a...

    Re: PSU problem?

    Nope, on/off button clicks same as it always has. Although if I push it in repeatedly I can get the fans to spin up faster and faster almost to the speed they usually run at. But then the PC beeps...

    Re: Routers: good brands & where to find?

    I use a linksys and it is fine. You can also get third party firmware from sveasoft that can expand its capabilities.

    I encode using AAC and have Shure e3c's, they sound awesome and reduce outside noise to a whisper. I don't usually notice a sound quality issue with the ipod unless I plug the earphones into my...

    Re: dsl 302g/azureus/port forwarding

    The 302G / Linksys WRT54G combo is a pig for port forwarding. I ended up bricking my 302g and getting a 504G instead and that works fine with the WRT54G.

    Re: Send text message from a computer

    vodafone.co.nz will let you send txt's from computer to mobile, it's called web 2 txt. If you use Telecom have a look at their site for ways to do this (I don't use the Telecom site).

    I disagree. Routers have cpu's, memory and run an operating system. I would say that is a computer system. The wireless radio is a communications device but it is being driven by a computer (in...

    The way I understand it, burglary occurs when a person breaks the "seal" on a house. This means simply opening a closed door (no matter if it is unlocked) is burglary. Walking though an open door is...

    Re: Trouble with DVD/CD unit

    Have you tried a cleaning CD? You probably have dust on the lens, which can cause the player to spin up but not read anything.

    If that fails you may be up for a new player. How old is it? The...

    Re: Slot 1 V Slot A

    I think from memory it is Socket A not Slot A. Socket A is incompatible with Slot 1. Slot 1 is an intel design and contained the CPU on a PCB board that "slotted" into a connector on the...

    Burnzee, I agree with you 100% Telecom should be investing more heavily in infrastructure rather than sitting on a protected (and aging) network.
