comment How to fix NAT type-Strict on xBoxOne
AT Ramhound, regarding your statement about not needing to port forward if you have UPnP I know what you mean but it's technically wrong even by definition, and if somebody didn't know or wasn't clear on what UPnP was, are you aware of how misleading what you wrote is, There is even a term or expression "UPnP port forwarding" You wouldn't and couldn't have UPnP without port forwarding. The point is it does port forwarding automatically.

@barlop though barlop, if I recall, you might have to keep telling it each time, to sort alphabetically, it's not automatic.

I do acknowledge the clarifications you MichaelKjörling and Ylearn have made to my first comment.

comment What other IP addresses can/should I use for my home network?
@MichaelKjörling if you interpreted my comment as every single address ending in .0 even for up to /24, is a network address and every single address ending in .255 even for up to /24 is a broadcast address then a network would have multiple network and broadcast addresses and indeed I didn't mean that. So I later said 0s n 255s. But great points have been made re the network portion smaller than /24 where the network address would-could not be dot 0(as the last octet's nw portion would have a 1 in it) and the bc might not b .255(though would if the network portion in that octet were all 1s)

comment What other IP addresses can/should I use for my home network?
@MichaelKjörling sometimes it spawns a chat link. Your statement is also a bit misleading.. in saying that only with a netmask of /24 is it true that ""dot 0 is the network address, and dot 255 the broadcast"" Because it could be interpreted as the network address never being dot 0 and the broadcast never .255 for a /24. Likewise I wasn't saying that every single address ending in dot 0 and I wasn't saying that every address ending in dot 255 is a broadcast. Any address from /0(if you can have a /0) to /24 will have a NW add ending in 0 and a BC add ending in 255. And not multiple ones....

comment What other IP addresses can/should I use for my home network?
@YLearn err, my statement above? The statement directly above your comment is clear and correct is it not? If u mean my first comment yes it could've been misinterpreted as a statement that every address ending in 255 is a broadcast,and I clarified what I meant.To be more specific-it seems to me that Broadcasts and network addresses will always end in 255[s] or 0[s] except for a case of the network address going into the 4th octet then if there's any bit set to 1 in that network portion you won't get a 0 network address and if there's any bit there set to 0 there u won't get a 255 BC address

comment What other IP addresses can/should I use for my home network?
@MichaelKjörling well, talking CIDR, even in the 172.16 case, which was /13 ,(so a very awkward one) but even then, the broadcast address ended in .255 The 192.168/16 and the 10/8 aren't /24 and would've been ending in a plurality of 255s. The 192.168.x/24 is simple as you say, ending in .255 . A case where the broadcast wouldn't end in .255 and I had to think for that one, would be if the network portion extended into the 4th octet and the bits it held were not all 1s.

yes you put that well, though dot 0 is the network address, and dot 255 the broadcast which he may use but he wouldn't assign.

now you have a good answer, you can accept your own answer (that's good for the database, having good Q n As). Note- sometimes superuser only lets you accept it after 2 days of it being posted.

also, the general troubleshooting point for after fixing it if you think you'll be able to fix it again and you want to investigate more what fixed it, is to try to reproduce the problem.

was reading your story in your profile there's a cliffhanger here "Age 14 in 1990, Dad buys the family - me - my first “PC”, a 4........" If superuser has a limit, can you put it in on www.pastebin.com and link to it?

comment How to print a file from command line in Windows?
@Mario You write "Windows 7? Or MS-DOS? Those aren't the same. Are you possibly referring to printing files from the console of Windows 7?" <------------ He actually wrote WINDOWS in his subject. and there is no sign of DOS in the body. AND he had a Windows 7 tag. He just had the ms-dos tag also for some reason but it is Blatantly Obvious that he meant Windows. So I just removed ms-dos from his tags and replaced it with command-line

comment Windows XP (32-bit) system with 8GB RAM, will I still get dual-channel benefit?
@Mario Why do you write that the mainboard won't care "(assuming it[the mainboard] supports up to 8GB or more).". If the Mainboard is only using 2GB of each bank(which would make sense if it's using both banks to get its 4GB).. Then wouldn't it be using both banks even if it was 2GB in each bank. So why do you write that your statement is true assuming 8GB. Wouldn't it if it were true, be true assuming 4GB too? (And XP would still have its 4GB total)
