    afaik basically it separates shit from each other
    people on vlan0 can't connect to vlan1's clients unless you config that they can
    basically since you probably have wlan and lan on that vlan that just means you got everything glumped together and it's complicated shit routers do and forget that it exists

    Computer audio just randomly died for me. I know it's not a headset issue nor something being muted since the computer's just not registering sound at all. When I tested with a youtube video it starts playing for a few seconds (without any sort of sound being picked up by either my headphones or that little icon in the lower right hand corner of my screen) and then acts as though it's continually loading.

    Did a little research and it pointed me to it being a problem with my Multimedia Audio Controller. Sure enough, I checked under System Properties and there's a little yellow triangle next to it, stating "the drivers for this device are not installer (Code 28.) Driver provider is unknown, the rest is unavailable and when I tried to click "Update Driver" windows was almost immediately unable to find a driver for the controller.

    What the hell should I do?

    Paying for an av is a waste.

    MSE or avast + malwarebytes.

    Headphones.
    If you're set on speakers, Logitech Z323 aren't bad.

    I need a 1TB Hard Drive to add to my PC so I can record footage from my games onto it instead of piling it all onto a my current HDD. Here are my specs;


    Link to the 1TB HDD:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004HBAGSO

    I paid 79.95 for that 1TB Seagate drive, but now it's up to about 91. What I am asking is; Are there any 1TB HDDs that are similar (if not better) in price and performance to the one I have now?

    I have some Sennheiser HD201's, want some speakers instead. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Edited:

    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers.
    They look quite hard to get in the UK. I'd have to get them shipped over from NewEgg or somewhere like that, and that'd be both expensive and a waste of time. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Any good mouse recommendations? I've been looking into some Coolermaster mouses and they don't look comfortable at all.
    Try the Razor Deathadder. Tons of pro gamers (CS/CS:S) use it, so it is worth a try. If you can afford it, you should try the Steelseries Xai. It has a great driver and is really comfortable. The sensor (laser) requires cleaning though.


    If you are on a budget, try the Steelseries Kinzu. It is 7% smaller then the Xai. (Don't buy it if you have a normal to large hand)

    You can also buy the MX518 or the upgraded version G400. That mouse is proven to be one of the best gaming mice ever created. They are both a bit heavy though. (I prefer lightweight mouse)

    So:
    Cheap? - Steelseries Kinzu
    Steelseries fan? - Steelseries Xai
    Good sensor and Razor? - Deathadder
    Logitech pro ass build quality for the real shit? - MX518/G400
    Hipster? - Steelseries Sensei (Upgraded version of Xai REALLY expensive)
    Lightweight? - Steelseries Kinzu v2 Pro Edition

    I have a Thermaltake Black mouse, its got 4 buttons (wish it had 5), a braided cable and an on-the-fly DPI switcher which is pretty convenient.

    It's also really big, which is good because i have long fingers.

    So I am a little confused on my RAM. I bought this and the speccy says 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28.) Should it not say 1600 MHz?

    it's running at the correct speed but your timings are off, you can set them correctly in your bios

    Ok so I'm a little confused on the concept of a home media center. I have an old computer (2003 I think) that I want to put media on and stream from another computer over my home network. My internet connection speed doesn't matter at all in this, right? My router can do up to 125 mbps (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833162173), so is that the rate at which the media should stream?

    No, your internet connection does not matter, unless you are streaming content from it like YouTube.

    Do research on the toner value first, pages printed per dollar - pick based on that. You're most likely going to be looking at a laser printer.
