comment Internet lags for me, but not for my brother
It seems very unlikely that his issue is with traffic on his local LAN. It's much more likely that it's his inbound Internet bandwidth that's the issue, and his router's QoS has no control over what packets his ISP sends to him.

comment Internet lags for me, but not for my brother
It just sounds like you two play different games. Latency-sensitive applications and bandwidth-intensive applications just don't play nice together on consumer Internet connections.

comment How to update all your drivers without paying
That could be caused by your wireless driver. I'd try upgrading that. Download it directly from Intel's web site.

I very much doubt your blue screens are due to your drivers needing to be updated.

comment Can I reduce AP's network and system load with using 802.11b on 802.11g AP?
I agree with the above. Slowing things down won't make them better, though it might "happen to help" if you wind up replacing the device that's causing the actual problem. I would start by troubleshooting the problem. When devices are disconnected, can they ping their AP? Does changing the channel help? Etcetera.

comment Computer force restarts when graphics card is installed
If it doesn't work, that doesn't prove the card is fried. You'd have to troubleshoot in that case. But you can't do any useful testing until you fix the cooling.

comment Why would an IP address fail, but the server (hardware and web server) and file system work?
You need to split the problem in half by determining whether, during a problem, those IPs do reach the machine or don't reach the machine.

comment ping and traceroute not running despite I'm connecting to internet
You should get that fixed. ICMP is not optional -- it is required for TCP/IP to work correctly.

comment Can a DHCP router with MAC address whitelist be hacked with a VM?
This scheme is ill thought out for a number of technical reasons. For one thing, it's redundant since access points are already required to do this. (That's why we need WDS and it has to be configured on both ends. If they didn't MAC filter already, we could just bridge our access points toghether with no special configuration.)

comment Issues with 10GB RAM on ASUS P5E3 Premium
@JoshR Sometimes motherboards have advertised support limits because that's the maximum memory density that was available at the time the motherboard was tested. But if no motherboard that uses that chipset supports a particular memory configuration after that configuration has been around for awhile, odds are the chipset is not physically capable of it.

comment Issues with 10GB RAM on ASUS P5E3 Premium
It means exactly what it says -- the MCH can address a maximum of 8 GB of DRAM. (That's not the only chipset limitation, but that's an important one.)

comment Wildcard CNAME record complications?
Anyone who can't explain what they're talking about likely doesn't know what they're talking about and is just repeating something they heard and likely didn't understand. Without an original source or some kind of back up, ignore it. (Or, at best, use it to search fro an original source with some kind of technical defense of the position. As it is, you don't even know what the position really is.)
