    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I have read speculation that the windows update error happens because it "isn't time yet". I know I have the error on my PC.

    Re: E-Reader Kindle or Nook

    What format are the IT books in that you would like to get?

    Re: Going Fibre

    We're still on ADSL2+, although fibre is available and we hope to go for it soon.

    The only problem with the proposed setup in my opinion is double NAT, which can be a real PITA.

    We have a similar setup (with different brand devices) here, where the wireless router (in your case...
  6. Re: All Cat 5e patch cables can do Gigabit Ethernet right?...Maybe not.

    Tell that to the cable manufacturer...

    That particular cable had cat 5 printed along it. The other one had cat 5e printed.
  7. Re: All Cat 5e patch cables can do Gigabit Ethernet right?...Maybe not.

    Probably, although I'm no expert.

    Not needed in this case however. We have Cat 6 for the structured cabling part.


    Problem was with the patch panel from the PC to the wall.

    Re: mSATA - What to do with it, if anything

    I assume it's a Z77 motherboard?

    If so, you should hopefully be able to use it with Intel's SRT tech.

    What is your budget like?

    While I'm no expert, some of those component choices look a bit dated.
