What I did was just set the network gateway to be something that won't get you online (perhaps the loopback address) or just a bogus network address. I did this for my parents' Windows XP partition of their computer, so that it would be able to access the local network but not the Internet. The gateway address tells the computer where to forward requests to ...

Pretty funny question. But one way to go is to uninstall all network adapters drivers from device manager. (local area network, wifi etc) But be sure to have the drivers already downloaded and saved somewhere just incase you need to revert. Secondly, you could run services.msc as an administrator. Go stop all network related services, (network list, ...

I can think of a few ways.. Give the network card a manual IP address that is completely off the network. Disable the IPV4 option of the network card. If wifi, then just do not enter the network key when prompted AFTER you remove the saved config info form Network and Sharing Center.. Manage Wireless Networks and removing your wifi from there. Hope this ...

One way could be to set a static IP without DNS or gateway.

Yes. Since years ago home routers allows classless addressing. Whenever you see that the router configuration interface has a field to put the subnet mask, it means that the router supports it.

Classful addressing is dead. Classes are superseded by the subnet mask. If it lets you specify a subnet mask, it's not classful.

Why not just perform a system restore selecting a restore point prior to the date you tampered with your registry values. This should restore your registry to the state as at the chosen restore point. Run rstrui.exe and follow the instructions

That is pretty much it. The source IP address of the request is part of the packet that contains the query. For example, here's a CGI script written in Perl that prints back the IP address, and as you can see, there's not much to it: #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI qw(:standard); print header(); print ...

For the most part what you listed is all you need to do for basic functionality. There is however one more thing you could do, you could check the X-Forwarded-For header added by some proxies (the kind used for caching) and load balancers and report that address instead because the address you get from the source address will be the proxies address, not ...

Going to Network Connections, Properties on my Wired Connection, selecting the newly created Virtual WiFi connection (named "Wireless Network Connection"), and clicking on "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection". Your virtual WiFi connection will most probably be named "Wireless Network Connection 2". ...

I had this problem too with cable. Basically its probably everyone being home after work and streaming, and you're sharing the same copper wire going down your street with everyone else and the bandwidth for the neighborhood is just not sufficient. However they mentioned they went to docsis3, so its worth a shot to insist they give you a new docsis3 ...

+1 for Bibhas answer (try searching with eg links www.duckduckgo.com :/ ). Surfraw can automatize that. It provides a fast unix command line interface to a variety of popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power: Surfraw uses your prefered text or graphical browser to display the result. This can be customized via ~/.surfraw.conf (XDG's ...

Using a static IP and removing the default gateway worked for me. Before doing anything, run a command prompt and type in IPConfig /all. Note the DNS server address, and whether you're using DHCP or not. Go to Network and Internet settings in Windows, then Change Adapter settings. Select the wired connection, then edit its properties. Select Internet ...

http://downloads.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_latitude_laptop/latitude-3330-laptop_Owner%27s%20Manual_en-us.pdf is the manual for that laptop. Please check page 34 for the instructions on turning the wireless off and on. If that does not resolve it, please make a LiveUSB or LiveDVD of Linux Mint 17.1, Lubuntu or some other ...

Obviously if you try to access a site using a name that's not that site's name, you'll get an error. There is no site called "www.pages.eimacs.com", so of course you won't be able to access such a site.

If it is a school issued laptop, they should be able to support/fix the issue. If their idea of fixing is to re-image the system, buy a USB drive to grab a copy of all the files you do not want to lose and give them the system to re-image. It would be very difficult without having knowledge of the system configuration or the networks you should be ...

Assuming you've eliminated every other possibility, purchase a subscription to an anonymizing VPN service and then try accessing both sites with the VPN active. Ensure that DNS traffic travels over the VPN as well. In this case, the ISP cannot see your traffic, and if access times to both sites are the same, your ISP may indeed be doing some traffic ...

One thing that might affect a browser and nothing else: Proxy Settings. You might want to ensure that they are as intended by looking at / editing the config One possible cause for your issues is that a) You were using a functioning proxy server, but it stopped working for some reason. b) Something/someone set you up to use a proxy server for a variety of ...

DarthCaniac wrote that "Servers don't connect directly to the internet", which ironically enough is actually both right and wrong at the same time. Your home network (either your PC, or your NAT router which provides connectivity to your other devices) is connected as directly to the Internet as most servers. Remember that the Internet is a network of ...

By definition, ISP means "Internet Service Provider". If a server gets its internet from the datacenter, the datacenter is the ISP. Servers don't connect "directly" to the internet because there is no single company that owns the internet. There are many large companies such as XO Communications and Level 3, that own so much cable backbone throughout the ...

The fix was to enable QoS WMM and ensure that the encryption/security option used is WPA2-PSK with AES. I'm not getting symmetric ~40MBps connections ETA: Additional notes: I get ~30 MBps Internet speeds on 2.4 GHz and ~40 MBps on 5GHz (Assuming both on the 11n channel)

In the end I no longer used 'Kiosk' mode in IE as the scope changed when it was Demo'ed. However the correct GPO for keeping IE open is located under: UserConf\Administrator Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Browser Menus\FileMenu: Disable closing of the browser and Explorer Windows This coupled with: UserConf\Administrative ...

It's more of a networking thing so without access to the network configuration I'd say you should look at some parental control software. You'd just black list everything and set the warning redirect page to the site you want, not black listed of course.

Warning: The instructions below contain steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For ...

If you are using a desktop version of Ubuntu, I believe setting nameservers to 127.0.0.1 is fine as long as you have the correct info in network-manager. Not very logical, but it works like that for me. You might want to check if the ethernet interface you are using is actually working. I've lost quite a few before, but if you don't mind using command line a ...
