I have an ethernet port that I want to turn into multiple ports You are probably looking for a switch or a router, but not for a DSL router. If your Verizon coax modem already works like a router, you do not probably need another router, just buy a switch. Routers connect two or more logical subnets, which do not necessarily map one-to-one to the ...

I have taken 2 of those apart a couple of years ago. (One was coffee-soaked, the other had a cracked display. Salvaged the display from the coffee-victim and used that to the repair the other one.) I clearly remember that both had the LAN port soldered unto the motherboard. It is not replaceable unless you are willing to replace the entire motherboard which ...

What you need is simply a USB-ethernet adapter. Unofortunately it totally depends on the tablet and the Operating System on the tablet whether or not a given ubs-ethernet adapter is compatible with it. As far as I know you can't do it with Apple tablets. There are some solutions for Android based tablets and tablets running Windows Mobile. For Windows based ...

I doubt you'd be able to run just a graphics card by itself via ethernet. But you could connect to another PC using some kind of remote desktop application (VNC, etc). There has been rumblings about being able to connect an external GPU via Thunderbolt or USB 3.1, and AMD says they want to make a standard for it: ...

Inconsistency in Windows Sockets API also known as Winsock is usually the root cause of this problem. If this is the case, try the following troubleshooting suggestions: Go to an elevated command prompt and enter netsh int ipv4 install and restart your computer. Open command prompt window, type netsh winsock reset and press Enter and restart your computer. ...

I believe VirtualGL might help you with this - it allows you to run the graphically-intensive program on device and view the results on another.

Not with ethernet, but with PCIe and Thunderbolt. This article breaks down the external GPU (eGPU) landscape well. A number of companies sell PCIe/Thunderbolt enclosures. Some are limited by Thunderbolt's power, some have their own power. MSI GUS II using Thunderbolt and limited to 150W. Akitio Thunder2 PCIe Box using Thunderbolt 2, but only provides 25W. ...

The closest you can come to what you want is, if you're gaming via Steam, to use the in home streaming option to use your network to route the display from the a gaming desktop to your laptop and user input from the laptop to the desktop running the game. This would require a full desktop somewhere in your home instead of just a laptop + external GPU; but ...

It is not clear what you intend to use as primary device. The Laptop? or would an adapter that connects the devices also be acepted? In the latter case the Steam Link device would exactly do this (transfering GPU rendered data over ethernet and just provides them to an outputmedium.)

Not by Ethernet, but PC Mag ran a story last Sept on using a gaming card with a laptop connected via PCIe adapter card, Express Card, or Thunderbolt for Macbooks. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2984716/laptop-computers/how-to-transform-your-laptop-into-a-gaming-powerhouse-with-an-external-graphics-card.html The author uses a 2011 Thinkpad and under $200 ...

Likelier option may be PCI-to-USB. Might be a smarter move. If you don't have a free USB slot: Plug something out! Or get a hub.

I am trying to wire two Ethernet jack ports into a trailer outback so two computers can plug into the wall at the same time. I have one long CAT6 cable with an rj45 connector on one end that is plugged into the router in the main house, and loose wires on the other end. OK. Do I need to wire two jacks into the other side of this one cable and ...

Both ends must be identical, a straight through connection. Pins 1, 2 3, & 6 are all that is used. On jack one connect the W-BL and W-Gr pairs like normal, on jack two place the W-BL where the W-O pair is marked and the W-Br where the W-Gr is marked. It's that simple. Note that all ports must be 10/100 only, if any port is a gig port, either on the ...

Technically this is possible... but it does violate the CAT6 cabling rules. An easy solution would be to purchase a ultra-cheap Ethernet hub/switch. That way you can use the one cable to get to a "fan out" hub/switch that you would then connect to both computers. An added benefit, is that you'd be able to add a another device at some later date. ...

If you have no technical skills, then the easiest way to break this down is simply: does your graphics card have an Ethernet port? The next question being "Can I get an adapter to make it so?" As far as I know, there is no adapter capable of adding an Ethernet port to a graphics card. If you simply want to beef up your laptop with an external graphics ...

Connecting a GPU by Ethernet is like connecting your PS3 controller to the PS/2 keyboard port: sounds like it's trying to fix a problem but the solution turns out to be completely outlandish and impractical. (Granted, if you can pull it off, you'll gain more popularity as that one crazy guy.) That said, I advise you not to try to do this because the ...

Probably not at commodity pricing for another few years. The current offerings are all high-end, using 10/40 Gbps connections and Nvidia Tesla cards. Even then, it's not directly usable for gaming or graphics, but more for CUDA processing. e.g. http://www.chelsio.com/gpudirect-rdma/

No. Chances are very slim that your laptop has a 10 gigabit ethernet adaptor - its uncommon on high end desktops. You'd also need some clever hardware to translate between PCI-e to ethernet, and the latency, oh the latency. You have a device which is typically put as close to the processor as possible with 16 dedicated pci-e lanes right into it, and you'd ...

There is a setting in the registry that will set the Ethernet connection as metered. The setting is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\DefaultMediaCost Setting it to 2 will make the connection metered. (taken from tenforums.com)

The device is not a network adapter, so it's never going to show up in ipconfig. I'm not sure what gave you that idea. Ethernet devices are not "discoverable" like USB devices, unless you've got something like WINS or Bonjour running alongside. Consider two approaches: Use the static IP address. This is quick and dirty but a pain if you're on more than ...

Looks like there's either something wrong with your network card or it's a Windows coding error that occurred during installation of Windows 10. However it's more likely a network card error. Try replacing your network card. Depending on your PC brand and type, network card changing will slightly vary but I found this link quite useful: click here. The ...

I finally could create a Eth1 interface on my Virtual Box. I had to do two things: Strangely the preference option is not visible on VirtualBox for ubuntu. So I had to press ctrl + G to get into it. Then I went to the network tab and created a hostonly adapter by clicking on a small button at top right corner among the three icons given. Then I had to ...

There is no eth1 on your host - eth0 is the only network card you have.

The guest VM does not have direct access to the network interfaces of your host PC, it has a virtual network adapter. If you want all traffic from your VM to use a specific interface, you need to enter the VirtualBox network settings for that VM and configure Bridged Mode with the interface in question. The default mode is NAT, where VirtualBox will ...

In the default configuration, Windows 7 hosts do not reply to ping. Since this is a closed setup, you can safely enable ping following the advice at the Microsoft Community website. As far as the other applications not connecting, suggest using Wireshark to make sure traffic is getting past Windows firewall.

Couple options: Take it to a friend's house and use their Internet to register it. Setup a PC to share your WiFi connection via it's Ethernet port, and then hook the camera to the Ethernet port of the PC.

Your NIC maybe under Unknown Devices or Other Devices, but it still has the same information. In the device manager under the details of the NIC there is a unique hardware identifier. 2 sets of 4 hex digits one for the vendor and one for the device id. You can then google the results. Here is one place to lookup the information. web site.

The answer is NO! It is not possible to connect to Synology NAS directly via ethernet cable if it's in DHCP mode... When NAS is reset, it's automatically set to DHCP mode and it needs to be connected to modem or router with DHCP enabled so it can get an IP address. And then it is possible to connect to NAS and set the static IP address. Both PC and NAS need ...

An adjacent protector can only 'absorb' or 'block' a surge. Manufacturers provide a specification number for 'absorbing': hundreds or a thousand joules. How many joules can be in a destructive surge? Hundreds of thousands. Why do near zero (plug-in) protectors fail catastrophically? Most are recommend by ignoring numbers. How does its 2 cm protector ...

Here is a fair explication (in 8 to 9 web pages) about surge protection Basically surge protection either tries to absorb the incoming energy or block the incoming energy. A good "absorbing" protection will let the current pass at the lowest possible voltage with the fastest reaction and is capable of absorbing the required energy without breaking. A good ...

There are advantages and disadvantages to both options (protected and not protected). In many cases, the surge protection can cause intermittent issues with different services such as... the cable's signal quality DSL (high speed Internet through a phone line) signal quality Ethernet connection instability That said, it will prevent minor power surges ...

A great latency measuring tool is DSLReports' speed test. Although this could be a Wi-Fi problem, I think it's much more likely to be bufferbloat. Bufferbloat is caused by routers that make the mistake of thinking that it's bad to ever drop any packets even if it means that buffer queues become huge and bloated and never drain, thus just adding lots of ...

Use MTR / WinMTR or equivalent - this will show Min, Max, Avg latencies as well as packet loss for each hop - including the first. The problem is likekly nothing to do with Webex (whatever that is) - its probably noise on the WIFI network

First, let's cover the basics: For this to work, you need the machines connected point-to-point, either via a switch and regular straight-through network cables, or directly between the two with a crossover cable. Once this is in place, the next step is to ensure that the two machines are on the same subnet. This, in short terms, means that the first three ...

Your plan makes sense. The reason they picture a TV or PlayStation with their MoCA-Ethernet adapters is because if they knew you wanted to do Wi-Fi range extension over MoCA, they'd try to sell you their Wi-Fi AP with a built-in MoCA port. I find that buying high-quality Wi-Fi APs (a.k.a. "wireless routers") is important, and I find that Wi-Fi APs that have ...
