Preferred Solution: Solved: is there anyway to give skype full access to internet with full speed

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: is there anyway to give skype full access to internet with full speed

Youtube buffers video, a live chat isn't buffered.

If your internet speed is 256kb/s you need faster internet service.

See here for more info on internet connection speeds and how to see how much bandwidth Skype is using: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA1417/how-much-bandwidth-does-skype-need

Adapter 1: Intel Built-in Lan
Adapter 2: Pci Card

I used to access shared internet from a router, now the router has no internet we only use it for local home sharing. I added the secondary adapter to connect to the DSL-modem directly.
so now when I disable the 1st adapter my internet works fine. when they're both enabled internet doesn't work at full speed or sometimes not at all.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I would suggest that you connect your DSL modem to the router and get your connection to the internet that way. Does your DSL modem have Network Address Translation (NAT) to protect you from some of the dangers on the internet? Your router probably does. You should be using it.

After getting Wave Broadband to come out to my house, and check out why I can only get 1mb to 3mb at most on speedtest.net they found my computer to be the problem.

I recently asked about watching movies from the library downloaded to my computer.
I contacted their customer service and they said that I needed to allow 3 programs "full access to the internet".

I'm not sure how I do that. Is there a list that I somehow check off in my security options?

The 3 programs are (PermissionTV Player.exe), drm_exec.exe, and Download Manager Service (dm.exe).

I have read through this thread
http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/508072-says-flash-drive-full-but.html
but it has expired and can't reply to it.

A friend has a similar problem, he has a 8Gb flash drive, that by its properties says it has ~7.11Gb available. When attempting to copy a 4.5Gb file, it states it is full and will not copy it.

I did attempt to look for hidden files, none found. I copy off everything that was on the flash drive, then formatted it, recopied his files back on and same issue.

When I plugged his flash drive into my laptop, my NOD32 detected Conficker worm, and removed the infected files, but this tells me his computer is infected, which I will soon fix for him.

Details
G:\Autorun.inf INF/Conficker.worm
G:\RECYCLER\S-5-3-42-****\jwgkvsq.vmx Win32/Conficker.AA.worm

I wonder if the recycler infection is responsible, but I am not very knowledgeable in what specific viruses may do. Or perhaps it is computer's recycler that is the source.

Even if the worm is responsible, it was cleaned, before I copied his files, and the drive was reformatted. As far as I know, it should cleaned, until he takes it back to his computer.

I regularly scan my laptop with both NOD32 and SpySweeper, and currently am not infected with anything they can detect.

My next step is to do a scan of his hard drive, remove what might be there, then see what may happen.

Any other thoughts?

Hi guys this is my first request for help so I hope I format it correctly etc.

This problem has been ongoing for months now but has finally reached its peak. Essentially the symptoms are the computers on the network sometimes receive no internet at all, sometimes they receive a tiny amount compared to normal. I should be getting 8Mb but when I do an online speed test Iím only getting 150Kb/s (I know there not 100% accurate but Iíve clocked 6.5Mb on them before so I know something is up)

Here is my simple network setup:

1 Netgear DG834
2 Desktops both XP Pro SP3 Legit copies
3 Laptops, 1XP Pro SP3 and 2 Vista Legit copies
1 WiFi signal amplifier
1 Network Printer

For now my main concern is getting the desktops access sorted, i can worry about the laptops later.

When this has occurred previously I have rebooted the router and it seems to fix it (which is a pain since its in my attic) but its only temporary. Sometimes it goes weeks without problems then for days in a row it gives me agro. I have replaced the router with the exact model and used the settings from my previous router (which I didnít set up manually just copied the file between them via a desktop) and this helped for maybe 6-8 weeks I havenít been counting.

Now today its back to its old tricks and hopefully I can try to describe what i have tried and see if any of you guru's notice something I didnít.

Nothing can ping through the router if that makes sense. For example PC 1 cannot ping PC2 or vise ... Read more

A:Solved: Router not allowing terminals full access to Internet (challenging)

Just a little update

Last night the internet went completely find again at about 11:30 it was fine untill i went to bed at 1:00am and now when i go to use it now at 11am its completely slow again.

Also i have noticed that TX b/s and RX b/s are way down compared to yesterday, as far as i know these are up and download respectively.

Yesterday it was as follows:
TX b/s: 669
Rx b/s : 1405

Today it looks like this:
TX b/s: 536
Rx b/s : 9123

I have noticed something else, when i do a speed test it imediatly starts at about 800 then drops down to 150, is it possible i am being capped by my ISP? i havent recieved any letter stating so and its getting towards the end of the month, maybe i have used my quota although i dont think i have one. I have heard though ISP's can limit your speed if you download alot that month but not cut you off entirely so they can still advertise a 'no limit' policy...

My router seems to be recieveing connections fine, i can ping out from my router to google etc with 23ms returns so it seems the router is recieveing fine just not the devices it connection too, cant find anything like this anyware else but surely this is not a unique problem.

Dont know if this will help diagnosis but thought id post it.

Cheers,

Firstly..I am new to this Forum so if I am making any mistake please ignore it..

Details: Windows 8 Pro, Internet connection using a USB modem , 3G connection

Now my problem is that i am not getting my full internet speed,like if my network meter shows my download speed as 1MBps in actual download like on IDM i will only get aprox 500-600KBps , and the worse part even with such speed my browsing speed is extremely slow it takes about 15-20 sec to load Google homepage.

Solution that i have tried:
1: Updated Windows
2: Driver Updated
3: Scanned with Norton Internet Security 2014 also checked after disabling Firewall and Real Time Protection
4: Scanned with Kaspersky Pure 3.0 also checked after disabling Firewall and Real Time Protection
5: Scanned with Windows Defender
6: Checked with No Internet Security Software installed
7: According to me there is no other problem with system being corrupt or anything like that

Any kind of help is appreciated..Thanx..!!

A:Not getting my full Internet Speed

3G network providers usually do not guarantee full speed all the time because it depends of signal strength, and particular cell repeater as it works over mobile phone network.
Can you check if the connection is thru GSM or WDCMA or something like that ? There should be a setting in the modem software, probably under Tools/ Network settings. GSM is much slower then the rest of them.

Can some one tell me how to give a specific computer in our small network 100% full access to my Windows 7 computer?  We have a windows NT based CNC machine(I'll call that the CNC) that is having a hard time communicating with my Windows 7 computer(I'll
call that the PC).  When I had windows XP I easily found a spot to enter the IP address of the CNC and that seemed to do the trick but, in windows 7 there is about 8 zillion different options and I am not sure where to achieve what I am trying to achieve. 
The folder the CNC needs to see, on the PC, is already shared.  The CNC can access the shared folder but it forgets that it is available every time it is shutdown.  The NT machine essentially sees it as a mapped drive.  Every morning I have
to retell it where the drive is.

If that does not continue to work,  does NT have a config.sys that I
can put that script in?

That script you put into the
"%systemroot%\system32\repl\import\scripts" directory  (where
%systemroot% is probably "C:\WINNT"). Then you enter the name of the
script e.g. "Win7logon.cmd" into the script property of the user
running your applications on the NT CNC machine ( on the profile tab of
the user properties page [via the user management or computer
management mmc snapins]). Both things you can do remotely from the Win7
PC, if the NT machine's systemdrive is shared and the RPC service is
running on the NT machine.

I'm wondering if someone can help me troubleshoot a problem.

I have cable internet that is advertised at 7mbps, and when working properly, can get closer to 10 mpbs. When it's working, it's great.

But I am finding that I have constantly reboot my router (a DLink DIR-655) due to slow internet. My speeds will slow to somewhere between 500kbps and 1Mbps, which is, of course, painful. Rebooting the router seems to solve the problem every time, but it doesn't seem to ever go more than a few hours without needing to be rebooted.

Here are some details about my setup that may help you help me.

I am using 2 Macs and 1 PC, along with a NAS device and a networked printer. I also have a second gigabit hub that is connected to the main router for further expansion as needed.

The DIR-655 has the most recent version of the firmware.

My ISP is Road Runner.

One question: I am using Mozy for online backup, and it has been processing a large amount of data uploading in its initial backup at around 368 Kbps. Is it possible that Road Runner is quietly throttling down my download speeds because of this uploading? I'm guessing probably not if merely rebooting the router solves the issue (however temporarily).

I welcome any help you can provide and can provide further detail as needed.
 

A:Have to keep rebooting my router to get full speed internet

If its only a few hours - Stop the Backup
Disconnect the other devices and try with Just ONE PC - see if that also has a probelm after a few hours

Did this happen with the new firmware update ????

It has something to do with this computer since my other computer is getting 30mbps. And yes this computer is connected directly through and ethernet cable. Any suggestions anyone?

You might want to check out the Advanced settings for this adaptor in Device Manager.

Make sure that flow control is disabled and that the Speed duplex settings are in Auto Negotiation mode.

It might also be worth going to the manufacture's site for your motherboard to obtain the latest drivers.

I understand where you are coming from on this. However, the Chinese government has restrictions on the use of the internet by setting up a security wall.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL and press enter.


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

Hi,

when I boot my PC, the monitor stays blank, the gpu cooler runs at full speed and I get the 1 long 3 short beep code from bios indicating malfunctioning RAM. Nonetheless, the system boots, but without a video signal. After shutting it down and restarting, the system fires up just fine and runs smooth as ever. That happens only if I leave the PC turned off for some while.

Before that, I had sudden powerlosses while playing games. Therefore I replaced the PSU. After that the troubles described above began.

The operating system is Windows 7 64 bit

My hardware:

Mobo: ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe
RAM: 4Gb Corsair XMS
CPU: Phenom II X6 1090t
Power: Enermax Revolution87+ 550W
GPU: XFX 6870

I have read, that several others had similar issues, but none could come up with a solution. The best solution I found, was replacing my GPU, which is a PCI-E 2.1 version, by a GPU that uses PCI-E 2.0. But that's what I'd like to do least. Especially since there should be no complications between PCI-E 2.1 and 2.0.

I am desperate for suggestions.

Hello! I am my company's Network Administrator, but I am not very familiar with Proxy-Server (Microsoft, V1.1) which we use as a "firewall". I've been fooling around with it a bit, but here is all I want to do:

I can connect, but when the java applet attempts to load, it says it cannot connect.

Same for applications like Napster, or other programs like that where you have to get a connection to the internet to run it.

(Now, don't think I sit around playing games at work and downloading stuff- I need to do some on-line classes for my accounting software and the same thing keeps happening, but I thought I would use a familiar example or two.)

I am using Microsoft Proxy Server V 1.1 on an NT server and a Windows 98 client machine. I connect through a proxy server setting (company name, port 80). I am using a cable modem, which is run directly into the server.
I tried going into the security settings and granting myself full permission, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas??

A:give full permission for the users in program files folder

Hi Oberwald
Thank you so much for the valuable information.
I have done this by
1) Turn off UAC (User Account Control)

Before you can do anything, you must turn off the UAC, or you will be locked out of the following steps.

1) Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> User Accounts
2) Click "Change User Account Control Settings"
3) Move slider all the way down to "Never Notify"
4) Reboot

2) Take Ownership

Yes take ownership. Even though you are logged on as an Administrator, you can't change files that don't belong to you. The Program Files folder is set to the Trusted Installer group and the Administrator doesn't have the rights to change anything. So now we
have to claim all the files and folders.

1) Open Windows Explorer
2) R-Click on Program Files -> Properties -> Security Tab
3) Click Advanced -> Owner
4) Click Edit
5) Select Administrators -> Put a checkmark in Replace owner on subcontainers & objects -> Apply
6) Wait a while.....
7) When it finishes, Click OK on all boxes to close everything

3) Fix Permissions

Now that you own the files, you have to give yourself permission to modify them

1) R-Click on Program Files -> Properties -> Security Tab
2) Click Advanced -> Change Permission
3) Select Administrators (any entry) -> Edit

Version of Windows?
Some PCs run fans at full speed until drivers get loaded and then settle down. So this may depend on how fast it completes the POST and hands control off to Windows.
Make sure you have latest version of BIOS (A17), latest chipset driver, video driver etc. for whatever version of Windows is running.

I'm helping a friend with her internet issue and can't seem to find the problem. She gets a strong wireless signal but, cannot connect to the internet. I tried running the network repair. First it said it was configuring the computer to automatically find proxy settings. when that didn't work I reset the network adapter. Still nothing. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

tnx alot ppl


 

A:Western Digital Caviar 250GB wont give the FULL size

I didn't do the math, but that sounds about right. There is a difference in the size the manufacturere advertises, and the actual reported size once the disc is installed on the system. Manufactures report the size as 1billion bytes=1GB, where your computer uses 1024MB=1GB. Manufactures also round up sometimes to make the size even out and make it look more desirable. an example would be a drive with 123billion bytes capacity might be sold as a 125GB or 128GB because it looks better on paper. I believe that tactic is mostly used by lesser brands, but I'm not completely sure if some of the major makers may use it as well.

I finally finished backing up all of my key files and upgraded my OS to Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3 (from SP2). I had hoped this would enable me to see the full 3 TB of the new Seagate Barricuda SATA drive that I installed this week but Windows can still only see 746.50 GB just like before the upgrade from SP2 to SP3.

I did some digging around the Seagate site and found a video that explained what I needed to do to get the full capacity of the disk recognized via the Disk Wizard software that they provide. The video shows you more or less exactly what you need to do to accomplish this. Unfortunately, the version of the program that I downloaded yesterday, Version 11.0, build 8326, doesn't look very much like the screens shown in the video. I tried very hard to make this (presumably newer) version of the program do what is done in the video but I struck out badly. I simply can't make it see beyond the 746.50 GB that Windows itself can see.

Does anyone here have any idea what I need to do to get the full use of the new drive? I paid a lot of money for this disk capacity and want to get my money's worth if I can.

Hello all,

can only use the web browsers to navigate to three specific sites. (btw, the laptop is on a domain) Have been doing research on this for hours now and can't seem to find a solution to what should be a simple problem. All the software suggested costs money,

Hi There,

I have an access database with one table which is getting full (TableID range). Now I am wondering how I can resolve this...

Should I create a new table and move the oldest records to there?

Also I am wondering what will happen when the last ID has been issued, and I remove let's say the first 3000 records, will it start over at the 1st ID?

What is the procedure to resolve this?

Thank you,
Wouter
 

A:Solved: Access 2003 database table getting full

Wouter, how do you know that it is getting full?
If you create an Archive Table and transfer the records it should not affect the current table at all.
Basically it depends on how often that you use the "oldest" data, it could even go in to a separate database.

First question... Are they high speed hubs?
I have an older 4 port Dlink here that's never run 480... looking into the chip on the internal circuit board, it turns out to be a 12mbps chip... you can slow them down, but you can't scare them into running faster.

I'm building a project database. Each project has an "approval date" in the format of mm/dd/yyyy. I'd like to let the user enter a year and then find all the projects (records) in the table that were approved in that year. The textbox they enter the year is named dateApproval, the table is tblProjects, and the column in which the approval date is recorded is BoardApprovalDate. Any suggestions on how I should write this VBA? Here's what I have so far:
Code:

If Not IsNull(Me.dateApproval) Then
SQL = "SELECT tblProjects.BoardApprovalDate " & _
"FROM tblProjects " & _
"WHERE BoardApprovalDate = " & Year(Me.dateApproval) [COLOR=DarkRed]'comparing different formats...[/COLOR]
Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(SQL) [COLOR=DarkRed]'you can probably stop reading here[/COLOR]
rs.MoveLast
rs.MoveFirst
If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
For count = 1 To rs.RecordCount
strWhere = strWhere & "([ProjectID] = " & rs![__pkProjectID] & ")Or"
rs.MoveNext
Next count[INDENT] End If
[/INDENT]End If

And am I even using that Year() function correctly? Ideally, I'd like to wrap the BoardApprovalDate in the Year() function, but I don't think I can wrap a whole column in that function.

Wondering if I can get a little assistance in creating a full outer join query in Access 2003.

Firstly I understand Access does not easily allow for this, you need to essentially create 3 queries and copy the SQL code then use the Union command in SQL to do this per the directions I found on this site:

http://www.databasejournal.com/feat...-of-a-FULL-OUTER-JOIN-in-Microsoft-Access.htm

That all said here is what I am doing and where I need help. I have 3 tables and I have been charged to create a means for the end user to quickly search these three tables via a single interface to find data. The data would not be shared across the the tables meaning the data would only be found in one of the three tables.

So, I need to understand if creating a full outer join across these three tables is the correct thing to do and if so, how to do it.

Lets call the tables A, B, C and the common field (primary key) for these tables would be "return number" and the field we would be using to search by would be "part_number".

Anyone feel like jumping in?

Hi I wonder if any one can help here, I cant get the ram to run at full speed If i do the PC locks up after 15-20 mins and then i have to press the reset button on the base unit, after i do this the PC will work perfectly fine for the remainder of the time it's used until I power off in which case it will freeze again like before upon first boot.

I thought at first it might be a heat problem but as i say it's only the first 15-20 mins on first boot up that is the problem i would guess if it were heat related it would be every 15-20mins not just the first boot up am i wrong ? , I checked temps using the motherboard utility and via bios and all temps and fan speeds are as they should be.

I'm currently running the Ram underclocked at 750mhz as this seems to not cause the lockup but surly i should be able to run it at full speed, is this a motherboard problem that cant be fixed or is there any settings that are not right that can fix the problem, I have everything in the bios on auto except for the ram frequency as i said i had to underclock.

Specs are below if you need more please ask and if this is in the wrong part of the forum mods feel free to move.

Intel core 2 duo 2.66

I have a Dell D500 with the Intel Pentium M @ 1.3 GHz. Lately my pc has been acting slow and I ran CPU-Z to check the clock and it said that it is running at 598.6 MHz. I was wondering why? I when into the BIOS and it is set at 1.3 Ghz as the CPU speed, but the SpeedStep is turned on. Is speedstep causing this to happen? If so, other than turning it off in the BIOS, which it wont let me allow, is there any way of overriding this. Right now it has Windows XP Home SP3 installed with 768 DDR RAM. I am using the "Always on" config in the power options btw.

I tried to update the BIOS but it wont let me since my battery is dead and wont says its not connected for some reason. Even if conncected to the AC outlet doesnt seem to matter.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A few months ago, I played with my services and sped my (Desktop) computer up. I'm not exactly sure what I did, but when I start up my computer (aka cold boot), my download speed doesn't even reach 1 Mbps. I forget what the upload speed is. My FiOS plan is 15 Mbps Down, / 5 Mbps Up. When I RESTART my computer, I do another speed test and everything is fine.

I recently changed from MSE to Bitdefender, but the problem started occurring before I migrated, so that's not the problem. Any suggestions what this could be?

My computer is wired to the router.

A:Why do I need to restart to get full Down/UP speed?

Please post the info requested here:
Basic Requirements Before Posting your Networking Thread
You can set your services settings to the default settings detailed here:
? Black Viper?s Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations

Then do a few speed tests in a row using this website:
Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

Restart and repeat the speed tests a few more times.

Open Resource Monitor and select the tab named Network. That should let you see what apps are using bandwidth. Leave Resource Monitor open and keep checking your connection speeds via the speedtest website until you notice a drop in speed several times in a row. Then quickly check Resource Monitor to see if some app is hogging your bandwidth.

This is not a perfect test since there are ways for apps to hide themselves from Resource Monitor... but it is worth a shot.
