There's a company called Space who are developing "Virtual Office" essentially VR environments which allow you to work form anywhere once you have a VR headset and a nice system that can run it. https://techcrunch.com/2016/06/28/office-in-vr/ Everything will move to the cloud besides some heavy applications like Video Editing and Animation software, but in ...

You can. I used to be in a similar situation, and I used an ssh connection from the server to the client to set-up a SOCKS proxy. You can set it up straightforwardly with the aid of the flag -D port number (for instance 10001) when making an SSH connection from the server to the client. (on the server, make a SSH connection to the client and leave this ...

if you have more than one internet connection (like an Ethernet and Wifi) and one does not have the sharing tab check the other connection. You may find it there I did and it fixed my prob. I believe if you are looking for it and you don't yet have another connection there is no point for the tab.

This is due to a big change in chrome from Google. Google has made changes in it's policy regarding chrome that it will not allow extension install from outside the chrome web store. It is done to protect users from malware and scam on the web. There is no way out for this. Sorry

Some options you should check: Verify there is a DHCP server on the same physical network as your computer (usually, the router on home networks) Check if this DHCP server is active and has spare IPs to distribute (should be in the DHCP settings of your router, can't help you there) If the DHCP is enabled, open a command prompt and run the commands @...

A yellow triangle means that your drivers and hardware are working properly. The problem is with the IP, your PC is not able to obtain an IP address to assess internet. You can check it by opening cmd and type ipconfig command and hit enter. Check for ip v4 address as well as v6. If they exists then it's ok. Otherwise type ipconfig /renew or /release to ...

You have at least 3 types of solution: router level (router setting), software level (settings/plug-in) and your own organization. :-) At router level. "...One Ring to rule them all..." J. R. R. Tolkien [T1,T2] You can see if your model offer you the possibility to limit the bandwidth for ranges of time, as you want. If yes you're done. Moreover, if you ...

Yes this is possible. Depending on the situation, you can install one or more programs that offer this. For example, Internet Download Manager can be used for downloads which has a scheduler buildin to queue the downloads. uTorrent for torrents can be used which has a scheduler buildin too. Just set the speed to 0 and it will not download or upload. ...

I think some of the answers may have been a bit confusing with their use of the terms "router" and "modem", probably based on your question's unclear use of the word "router". If your "router" was provided by your ISP, and it is the only box given to you by them, connected to a coaxial cable coming into your house, and you still have Wi-Fi, then it is a ...

The answer is "It depends, but probably not". If by WIFI you mean "Internet Access", and they don't have Internet themselves, the answer is "No". Briefly speaking, there is equipment on the other end which needs to be enabled on a per line basis - it will not be enabled on their line. If they already have Internet, but no WIFI then * If they use the same ...

If your friend does not have an existing connection to his/her house, then no you cannot just take your router and plug your equipment in. The modem/router is just an interface that enables your devices to utilise the internet connection coming to your house, it itself is not the device that brings internet to your house. If however, your friend already has ...

The other answers are good, but complex. Here is a simple one. ADSL is using an analog carrier to encode a digital signal. AN ADSL device includes a Modem (but a much faster and more complex one then the old dial-up ones) - the input to the modem on the sending side is digital, the modem converts it to analog, the remote side converts it back to digital. ...

Is DSL digital or analogue? The various flavors of xDSL, or Digital Subscriber Line, all employ sophisticated digital signal processing to transmit digital information over twisted-pair wires. Such signals are simply called "digital" signals for convenience. However this is an analog world (unless you're studing sub-atomic particles, where quantum physics ...

The easiest way would be to create a VPN. And there are plenty of ways to do that. What I recommend, from the most simple to the most complicated: Hamachi (limited to 8 user/network in free version) PPTP (just apt-get install pptpd on the server and add the users) because it's built in Windows clients (I don't know for Linux) OpenVPN, for which there are ...

Generally when you refer to ADSL. As the acronym states it is called Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. Which would makes DSL a digital connection. It is quite funny that your voice service uses the same network as your ADSL but one is Digital and the other Analogue. But in the end DSL is digital.

Public IP address is an unique address assigned by Internet Service Provider. Private IP addresses are provided by network devices, such as routers, using network address translation. Private IP addresses can only be guaranteed unique to an internal network. Analogy: Public address is like house(assume apartment) number provided by local government. ...

All signal is inherently analog when traversing its media. That's a fundamental of reality. This implies that any given signal could be placed in a media like air where vibrations propagate the signal. Since you don't care what he signal is, only whether any arbitrary signal (or multiplexed set thereof) could be audible, the idea of digitally encoded data or ...

Analog modems use sound to encode data, but digital communications do not. Fiber uses light, and all the examples of what you want to hear are above 1 MHz, well above the level of human hearing.

It dosen't sound like anything. The oldschool modems were a workaround - In the US and some other countries, they used acoustic couplers which were restricted to 1200bps and were literally a device that fitted over your phone. Most proper standalone modems did not work that way. I'm assuming we're talking proper modems when talking about dialup. I for one ...

From the questions above i'd recommend the following. Directly connect a Laptop / Computer and see if the problem remains. I've had a case where while having friends stay over with a child their baby monitor would interrupt out wi-fi, causing it to randomly drop, I've also heard of radio transmitters/receivers (police radios) can interrupt Wi-Fi signals ...

The data your provided is not consistent with a traffic problem (not on your side anyway). If there is traffic overload, the response time will usually increase up to a point when it drops. What that drop looks like is a faulty connector. To confirm this, when the situation re-occurs, just let one device that you know generates no heavy traffic connected,...

It could be related to your DNS. Why don't you try using another server? Google's are: 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4 If that works, you can change it permanently, though how you do that depends on which OS you're using. Here's another, OpenDNS.

From what I've read, you shouldn't need to do anything specific. It should be integrated into your network stack. According to Akamai's FAQ How can I see what it does and control its activity? NetSession provides a console that gives you the ability to review your NetSession activity and manage settings. On Windows, open your Windows Control ...

The server that provides the files might be limiting the speed, either intentionally, or because many people download files from it in parallel. To test, try to download files from other sources.

We had this problem today with the Tally T2365 printer. We changed the speed of the network connection from 100 Mb to 10 Mb. Not sure if that helped. We had the printer connected to a PC and both devices connected to a small switch. I power cycled the switch but that did not seem to help. When we disconnected the switch from the LAN the normal web page ...

I dont get AT&T service - ive inferred an answer from a general understanding of routers. You will probably will find a device on your network making lots of connections, which is overloading your routers ability to cope. (examples could be p2p traffic or a compromised PC enlisted in a DoS or email attack). Try looking at the amount of activity ...

The answer comes from a tip I received on this same question asked in the Unix & Linux StackExchange. Per my setup, I had two systemd network unit files: one for the bridged adapter and one for the host-only adapter. I wanted the bridged adapter to have a dynamic address because the virtual machine is on a laptop that moves between networks, and I ...

Have you tried resetting your Modem. Perhaps the most basic things should be checked first.

Yep, assuming you've correctly isolated this problem to your router, it sounds like a really crappy buggy router. Regardless of settings, it shouldn't do this. Make sure you have the most recent firmware on it. If the most recent firmware still has the problem, look into putting an open source firmware distro on it, such as Tomato, DD-WRT, OpenWrt, Gargoyle, ...

The majority of the routers in the Traceroute output are owned and operated by service providers and are responsible for routing large volumes of traffic over the internet. As such, these routers (typically called carrier grade, core or backbone routers) are much larger than the average home router and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Cisco CRS ...

You can deploy a network bridge sitting between your router and switch. So you can monitor all clients bandwidth and connections in the switch. Check this deployment for details: http://www.wfiltertutorial.com/Deployment

A. Use a firewall (external to windows) to control traffic. This is what a firewall is for, you can have a better firewall than the one in Windows (iptables/firewalld or pf) for almost nothing. This solution can protect/manage traffic on the boundary of your entire network (including your mobile phone perhaps?), or you could split it into a few zones with ...

Solutions I can think of: Move the modem/router to a more central location. I expect this isn't an option and that's why its in the location its in. So.... Wifi extenders. Wifi Access points. Or an old, but compatible, wifi router to bridge the connection. Little more complicated, but better than... Powerline adapters. Yeah, just stay away from these....

If your speed goes way down after minutes, then the chances are high that your upload speed has reached its capacity. Whenever you do a download, confirmation packages are sent back. When your upload is full, confirmation packages are not sent directly and are queued up. Due to this, downloads are stalled too, and internet appears to be very slow. The best ...
