comment Are USB Ethernet adapter slower than embedded NIC?
That is a heck of a mistake you made - and to call it "just a typo".

comment Are USB Ethernet adapter slower than embedded NIC?
dunno though usb2 is max 480Mbps (60MB/s). In 10/100 100 would be 100Mbps(not MB) so 12.5MB/s I guess my downloads are never more than 12.5MB/s then. Perhaps you're confusing Mb and MB. BTW it's possible USB is slower though perhaps not affecting downloads so much maybe more in response, maybe, and even if so, then it's probably not the cause of what you see. it may be confusiong over MB and Mb.

@0xC0000022L When did they start doing that? And how common is it? Is it > 50%? Notice that the answer with 3 votes has suggested removing the battery too.

comment Why does scanning take up so much space?
i'm sure that's nothing to do with the quality of your scanner, but probably to do with something like resolution of images. or the software that their scanner uses, which you might be able to get for your scanner and if not then you could convert your pdf to a smaller size. How, would be an Adobe question. Also the really massive amount of space I refer to, is during the scan rather than after.

comment Too slow saving file in Office 2010 and Win Server 2008
Have you tried saving a file locally (to test that it is the network or something network related on the machine, and not a local or more local problem like a hdd problem on the local machine). And have you tried changing the network cable? and trying an ethernet card? and have you tried saving a folder and file outside of office 2010, on the shared/remove drive, using e.g. a "Computer" window?

comment How does SSH tunneling work at low level?
what do you mean by "The SO"? As for "a tunnel wraps the". No.. Tunneling is smuggling/encapsulating one protocol inside another one, but the encapsulated is encrypted, and this allows the encapsulation to be a potentially untypical combination and flexible. A tunnel is I suppose the connection with tunneling going on. (i'm no fan of the terminology!)

comment Route traffic from one port to another machine in LAN
you lose me more with each paragraph. Hamache is like logmein, web, or is it app? How is having a virtual machine as proxy in between, going to stop the problem that when your session is over, hamachi disconnects? why is your session becoming over? is it because you are disconnecting hamachi? If you can send a "request" (try to connect via hamachi) to your virtual machine, and it keeps the connection, then why can't you send it to your work computer? then you talk of "the hamachi adapter". since when was hamachi an adapter!!

comment Directory contents comparer by file content, ignoring name
don't know but one method could be to order them such that they pair up so the first in dir1 is to be compared with the first in dir2. then rename each file to its position. so dir1 will have files called first, second, third, fourth e.t.c. similarly dir2. Then they'll have the same names. and you'll know which files are meant in your comparison.

comment Connect to local computer through external ip speed
" cpe-24-24-174-153.socal.res.rr.com and 24.24.174.153" one is the hostname (notice the ip happens to be written into the hostname to ensure the hostname is unique), and one is the ip. See my first two comments to this/my answer for names/terms or possible names/terms for this redirection. one name/term may be disabling nat redirection filtering. another may be NAT reflection.

comment Why does MS-DOS tells me I need extended memory and thinks a file is read-only?
What a mess. You shouldn't be changing memory settings by right clicking icons in windows, for your usb stick running msdos. I doubt that's even possible. There are no PIFs in MSDOS and you don't configure things like that in or for MSDOS! You configure things for msdos WITHIN MSDOS. like to shift memory around edit config.sys and say device=.......emm386.exe RAM or to switch it the other way device=....emm386 NOEMS You configure DOS within DOS, editing autoexec.bat and config.sys though you could edit those two in notepad outside DOS!

@HarryJohnston I must correct your spelling error. It's carEt. btw I know ntcmds.chm mentions it, but where in cmd /? documentation is it mentioned about the caret being the escape character?

comment Connect to local computer through external ip speed
@agovizer ok it's just showing your external IP but other than that, it's not even leaving your LAN, so this proves your hypothesis. And by the way, your router , and any router even one that doesn't do this feature(and only sees the internal ip from the lan), any router, has two IP addresses, one is internal one(LAN side) one is external(WAN side). (really serious routers have more IPs and connect many networks not just a LAN and a WAN).
