@DavidSchwartz One is connected wirelessly 72.2 Mbps. But BTsync is taking only 6MBs?

@DavidSchwartz It worked! Thanks a lot for the help. One small question.. While syncing, synergy becomes slow (It's an app used to share the mouse with the other machine through the network.) It looks like bittorent-sync is taking the whole network bandwidth. But it's going at 6MBs?

@prateek61 Yes it have. Here's a screenshot of the setting : i.imgur.com/GTtqRtv.jpg . But if I enable that the internet connection will drop right?

@Tetsujin Actually I wanted to filter content for my network. I thought of doing it using open dns. I can simply set the open dns address in the router. But if a user add a custom address from his computer there will be a problem. I can't install ddwrt in the isp's router (model not supported). They have IPtv settings added to it (they won't give them to us) so can't replace it either. That's why I used a second router with DDWRT.

@DavidSchwartz It's not selected. Only use predefined hosts selected. I 'll try enabling it.

comment How to get a Windows 8.1 iso for clean install with a Single Language key?
@techie007 please read my question carefully and do some research before marking as duplicate. The Single Language version of Windows 8 won't work that way.

Setting as cache with Smart Response is not available. So I have limited options. One is use Rapid Start and Two is use as virtual memory. What will be the best?

Is it possible to repair it?

comment There's a stray current flowing from my monitor through the VGA cable to the PC. Is this safe?
@Breakthrough That question is related to the charger of a laptop. This is a desktop and related to a monitor. In that case and most of the others the house have a grounding problem. But in my case, the house have a good grounding system and the current flows through it without giving a shock to anyone who touch the equipment. I asked, even if there is a good earthing system, since a stray current is flawing through the VGA port and going out through the ground of the PC, can it still damage my machine?

comment Is it safe to keep the Asus notbook plugged in to AS power while working?
@CarlB Im not sure whether that answer is true because once I tried to ask it from HP... One representative told me its ok and the other told me its not. So im confused!

@Dennis Different manufacturers handle this in different ways. HP say it can and Asus sometimes say it can't. Thats why I specifically asked about Asus notebooks.
