  1. Yeah it's a problem :( I remember when I upgraded to Win7 and couldn't find my ethernet cable and tried the USB till I got a new Cat5. Didn't happen and took me a while to guess what the issue was. Sadly the previous 32bit drivers worked on 32bit Windows 7 but Vista's 64bit drivers didn't work on Win7 64bit. Oh well! ipconfig...

I've got ~$50 credit there for a dodgy purchase so it'll only be $20 additional outlay. Thank you again tantryl. I'm thinking your saving me a lot of grief :D Have a great day!
  2. Thanks tantryl, I believe it's disabled - even if it's not I'm uncertain whether you would need a USB driver for the modem, in which case they never made one for 64bit Windows 7, so it wont work with USB. If the USB just works as a data cable, well, that's a different story :/ I've given up trying to go the cheap and cannot find a 5V 3A plugpack for the D-Link I have here, besides it was a bit glitchy any way. I've a few bucks credit at dick smiths so may as well use that up... http://dicksmith.com.au/dsau/search/dsau_search_results.jsp Which router? Cheaper is better. Want both PC's to be able to handle playing WoW, which shouldn't be hard(?) It's Optus cable if that's important. Wireless is not important... so even though there aren't any without it, what's a good'un? Easiest to setup? Thanks muchly gents. I love this joint when I need help, just some info and even a laff :))
  3. Thanks for the replies fellas. Both PC's have a P55A UD3R Gigabyte mobo with only a single LAN connector, so I'm assuming a crossover cable is out. I thought a hub cam after the connection, so it's interenet > modem > PC > hub? How is the hub connected if the modem uses the single LAN connector? The modem is the older Motorola SB5101 (Optus supplied - it's not a modem router). Appreciate the feedback fella's. Also, I've got a D-Link Airplus G+ DI-624+ router, am I just better off getting a new plugpack for it and getting that to work instead. IT's wireless/wired. Cheers :D
  4. Hi folks, Never been involved in networking and such, now my son has bought his PC over for the week and we want to share the cable connection (surfin', WoW, COD etc). The PC's will be in the same room so I'm wondering if there is a way to do this without a router? I've got an older d-link Airplus but cannot for the life of me find the plug-pack, and don't want to spend coin if it isn't necessary anyway. Both are running Windows 7 premium (64). Thanks so much for any advice. :)

    Razer Naga.?

    yeah i got one. its a fine little mouse. the unfortunate side of things is i cannot get comfortable long enough to get into the game :(

    Razer Naga.?

    stoned, i certainly see where you're coming from and once upon a time i'd be all pissy over it but why? i'm alive, my family are in good health, broken bones heal and life is far too short :) appreciate the sentiment though. thanks uber, i reckon it'll help. i'd sure like to get some game time in. in fact, i'll need to ;) movement will be limited to mouse only but that's ok. the button pad should be a great help in combat and such. i'll try and limit the rotation a bit. shammy for life!! p.s: typing one handed so excuse the slack effort re: capitalisation.
  7. Hi folksie's Well, on Thursday night I got collected by a car crossing Hoddle street on the way home from work. I've got some broken parts and unfortunately lots of time -- which I'll need to type with one hand! So I was wondering, even though it's not ideal, would a Razer Naga help me out playing WoW? And also, these are pretty big forums with a fair reach. So if the dude that was driving happens to be reading, or one of his buddies does and it gets back to him. It's okay mate. These things happen. I forgive you :)
  8. Hi folks, I have one month (and a bit) left on my Chumps account. If anyone has the game but no coin, or whatever, you can have my account. There are two rules though... 1. You have at least 50 posts on Atomic. 2. You actually try and use the time, or at least some of it. There are 2 or 3 level 40 toons on the account. All similar but all have at least one retcon. Hands up who wants it and I'll message my login crap to the first 50 or more poster. Account is cancelled so if you dig it you can re-activate with new payment details. Toodles.

    Erm, do we have to be there by 5:30? I'm not sure my son and I can get there in time. In fact, I'm pretty damn sure we wont :(
  10. lazyfly

    My turn :)

    Get a Hyper 212+ (Coolermaster) HSF and use it from the outset, the paste that comes with it is fine. I know the R3 has a hole on the mobo tray for easy HSF transferring but there's no real reason not to OC straight away (well, get Windows up and running at stock -- drivers updated etc, then go nuts). Don't forget to save a few bucks for some shiny new software to show it all off :)
  11. lazyfly

    My turn :)

    Yep. My sons i5 750 is at 3.8 (1.275v). Max teamp with LinX was 64c with Hyper 212+. As for that cooler, great value, I have one too, but I'm going to replace it with a Noctua -- its a little noisy -- because my last Q6600 had a Noctua :) Good call re: mobo and 16x + 4x. Which P55 mobo's do 16x 16x or 16x 8x or whatever is required?
  12. lazyfly

    My turn :)

    oops re: 768MB version of the card. Wont that suffice HD resolution though? (I dunno) I have Chuck Rock aspirations... think I was playing it on C=64 :/
  13. lazyfly

    My turn :)

    Buy now, pay 'less', upgrade sooner. Buy 'later', pay more, upgrade later. Also, never buy version 1! Many folks have that mobo, it runs fine, OC's easy. Many folks have that (and it's predecessor) CPU too. Same or more so than the mobo. Runs great, OC's like a psychopath wielding a bloody big knife chasing college girls on a stormy night. Wow, that last part is a bit scary. Any psychiatrists on board??? *edit: 460's are less than 200 bucks at PCCG at present!

    So sadly it appears the simulation PC era is mostly over -- excluding the obvious rFactor, iRacing and to a lesser extent SimBin's releases. Certainly for cars. THe consoles are too big a market to risk a proper sim on, so it seems that the games are made stupid, then for the sim they're toughened up a little, but still not enough. It used to be the other way around. They were made difficult with assists added to compensate for the players skill, mood or peripheral choice.
  15. Hi fellas, Well, the net seems to be fine since Friday night. Was it the re-flash using Q-flash instead of (Windows based) @BIOS? I don't know. Coincidence that I called Optus the same night and by the following night it was all good? I dunno that either! A bit frustrating -- but good news regardless. re: no keyboard during boot, well that is resolved too. I've figured out what is causing it, but not why it happens. It would appear that having the USB hub from my Dell 2209WA monitor connected upsets things. When the monitor hub is unplugged the keyboard is present during boot! Hurrah!... but why?? Funnily enough I didn't pick this is at the time, or make the connection, but yes, this more or less was plugged in a week or so after I built the PC, hence the keyboard worked, then it didn't, and now it is again. Anyone familiar with this issue?
