    Re: Fresh Windows 7 install

  2. Re: How do I read an 8cm DVD on a 12 cm DVD Reader?

    I'm assuming your DVD drive is vertically mounted? Otherwise it's just a matter of placing the mini CD in the indent in the middle of the tray.

    If vertically mounted, then you may have to tilt the...

    Re: Home Router DHCP Server Setup

    Honestly, I'd have never even thought to set the DHCP server's LAN address inside its pool range, so that restriction does make sense. However, I can also see that it wouldn't be that hard to write a...

    I'd doubt that the quotes are required around the UUID portion.

    Re: TV Reception

    Terrestrial Freeview broadcasting only started in 2008, so I'm guessing your older TV simply can't decode digital (DVB-T). You'll need a Freeview set top box to decode the signal & plug in to AV/HDMI...

    Maybe try adjusting some Chrome flags? Go to chrome://flags & look at "Insecure origins treated as secure" and "Mark non-secure origins as non-secure" options - may do what you want, hopefully

    Re: Printer Offline problem

    Did you try entering "http://100.0.0.36" into the browser address? I know Chrome will try to search the web for the number unless you add the http:// prefix, which isn't what you want here.

  19. Re: not sure if anyone can explain about subnetting?

    You could define the subnet as "all addresses that, when AND'ed with the subnet mask, result in the subnet address". So for the 172.67.84.64/26 subnet (or any /26 subnet) , the subnet mask is...
  20. Re: not sure if anyone can explain about subnetting?

    It's /26 because the number of addresses in a subnet a.b.c.d/N is 2^(32-N), or in this case 2^6=64. Strictly speaking, both the first & last addresses of a subnet are not used (they are the subnet...

    I assume you require a line input device so you can record off your old player? Make sure you get something with that input, I think the suggested device from PB Tech only has mic in.
