I'm a soldier in the US Army, program in C# in spare time, for some fun :P

Perhaps there is a way to patch existing software. Guess it depends on how easy it is to enable this feature.. guess I have some testing to do.

comment windows surface onscreen keyboard
So other than hacking/patching existing software, my only recourse is to find a different program? So I need a new browser just to get the autocomplete working in an address bar? Seems like a poor design decision... they should have just made it a function of the keyboard and not the app. Or default to on....

And now remote desktop works properly.... But later today, it'll be messed up again.

Note: If both computers have the same username and password, you won't receive a prompt. The computers will automatically authenticate.

comment How can you move/copy all files of a specific file extension to a directory in windows vista?
A bit convoluted for such a simple task. Wildcards are a much better answer.

comment How to check if a binary is 32 or 64 bit on Windows?
Unfortunately, this requires you to run the executable. Perhaps you need to check the architecture of the program as a troubleshooting method on why it is not running.

comment Is it possible for a router to “go bad” with time?
I usually get a new router every 2-3 years, due to random failures.

Replacing the power supply may be more expensive than a new router. Consumer grade electronics are cheap nowadays.

Remember, 64-bit OS cannot run 16-bit programs. I don't think its an issue here, but be aware.

Since ping works, it is most likely NOT a network issue. If it were a network issue, it would be on layer 4 of the TCP/IP stack. The error message points to an authentication issue.

comment How to access an node of an LAN via WAN?
Also note, some Cable/DSL routers will allow you to input your dyndns details, and it will automatically update. The normal way to do the updates is to run a service on your computer.

I've done this - it works well.

comment Bizarre and very specific Internet connection loss
@Synetech, Yes, that is a possibility. Really unlikely, but it is a possibility. I'm reminded of a phrase often used in tech support: "not cost effective to repair." If you try a new router, and it works, you're out maybe 40$ (unless its a higher-end router). That beats tracking down a random problem. If this isn't a satisfactory answer though, my best guess is RAM, power, or heat.

@Syntech, A router is a complex piece of electronics. Any one componant could cause things to go wrong. In my experience, if the symptoms are "weird shit happening", the usual culprits are power, heat, or RAM. Perhaps that is whats going wrong with your router. Other than that, if you are really that concerened about which componant is broken, you would probably want to ask an electrical engineer or someone similar that deals with the actual componants. Either way, that is beyond the scope of SuperUser, now you're talking circuitry, transistors, etc...

@Synetech, A cable/dsl router is so cheap, that if it is the broken component, its not worth it to fix, just buy new.

Perhaps. This seems like the best idea I'm gonna get. The price is really nice. Thanks!

comment Gigabit Ethernet wiring
While it may be recommended to use Cat5e or Cat6, it will work with Cat5. However, anything that goes wrong, could knock it back down to 100Mbps. So keep it away from power, flourescent lights, any other EMI.

Everything sounds like a bad router. You need to test with a different router. Until you do that, most everything else would be hypothetical.
