Trying to daisy chain my p50 to two U2717D Dell monitors which should support MST. I've got mDP out to DP in on one monitor with MST turned ON.And this monitor connects to the second via a mDP out to DP in on the 2nd monitor. But only monitor one shows anything. Do I need to download separate NVidia drivers or something? Thanks!

I have two routers at my house. One is a standard 4 port Linksys router, the other is a 4 port Belkin 54g wireless router. I want to have my cabel modem plug into my Linksys router in my garage (my modem's there) and I have it 4 cables running to 4 different rooms. I want to chain my wireless off the connection that comes to my room.

When I do this, I have many DHCP problems. For example, I can't forward ports, because when I want to forward ports on my Linksys, it gets confused because my Belkin's scope runs off of 192.168.2.x, and my Linksys can forward a port to my IP (b/c it uses 1.x). I'm getting VERY frustrated, because I can't seem to control BOTH routers when they are daisy chained (since I couldn't forward the port, I had to just plug my computer into my Linksys).

If you have any ideas, PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks !

I have a Cooler Master CM 690 Case with 3 fans stock and Cooler Master 600W silent pro PSU, ASUS M4A77TD MOBO (one fan plug other than cpu fan)....

I planned on running 7 case fans total 6x120mm and 1x80mm (stock exhaust)

Stock fans all came with 3 pin to Molex adapters but aftermarket are just 3 pin

Would I be better served to get more 3 pin to Molex adapters and daisy chain fans off a couple psu molex plugs, let's say 4 fans on 1, 3 on another, or just spring for a fan controller?

I'm saavy about basic electrical but not sure how many amps these fans use, I know it can't be much, and the PSU is a 40A single rail.

Thanks for any advice.
 

A:Daisy chaining fans

The fans are going to be pretty low amp (less than one, likely something like .3), you can daisy chain them and it will be fine. But I think the best solution would be a fan controller. I guess it comes down to how 'nicely' you want to do it. Personally I'd just wire them all off of a molex or 2 and be done with it, but I think a lot of people are going to want to tell you to do it the 'proper' way and use a controller.

Either way will work fine.

Hello,

I just recently moved into a new apt. Where the landlady has set up a wireless daisy chain across all 5 floors using tplink's WA730RE's. The issue is, which is expected, slow and often unreliable WiFi connectivity. I sometimes have to power cycle the repeaters more than twice a day to get them working...

Now, since these repeaters can be set up as wireless bridges, what would be the best practice in order to get, as much as possible, a better overall performance on the network? I have a spare router that I could hook up into one of the repeaters, that can be used as a wap, in order to break up the packet load. But will connecting it through a cable from the repeater actually work?

P.s. The base router is on the 2nd floor and then there is a repeater in each hallway up to the 5th floor. So I was guessing connecting the wap on the 4th floor...

Any ideas on how to make it work best?

Greetings. I'm wondering if there are performance hits if you use several daisy-chained switches versus running cable from each work station to one switch. For example, you have 16 users with four users each in four offices. You could run 16 cables from each workstation to one switch, or you could put a 5-port switch in each of the four offices and run only four cables back to the main switch. Is there a performance difference between these two scenarios? Thanks.
 

A:Daisy-chaining switches

Under normal loading conditions, this will work fine.

It's not an ideal situation, since there are some potential bottlenecks. If you have a lot of traffic between workstations in different offices, the connections to the small switches may have excessive traffic. If you have a gigabit connection from the server to the switch, the same situation applies to the path between an individual workstation and the server.

I have a lenovo x230t computer with Windows 7. I contacted dell asking them if their u2414h monitor support displayport daisy chaining and told me if would. I bought 3 of these monitors. I have connected my laptop (which has displayport) to the first monitor which has mini dp in. Then, connected dp out on the first monitor to mini dp in on the second monitor. Lastly, I connected dp out on the second monitor to mini dp in on the 3rd monitor.

The problem is I cannot get the external monitors to show different things. The computer treats them as one and duplicates their displays. I have tried with another laptop and a mac and get the same results. I tried contacting dell and got a lot of transfers and then to a guy that knew nothing at all. On top of that, he wanted to charge me $130 when I just got these monitors and I should receive free help to get their products working the way they are supposed to.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a question about daisy chaining power backup (UPS). Let?s assume I have 2 new identical UPS. If I hook up one the wall, the second one into the first one, and the entire computer the second one (so wall socket > 1st UPS > 2nd UPS > computer) will I be facing any issues? Such as oscillation between UPS?s when power kicks out?

I know that I will have a problem if 2nd UPS draws more power what 1st UPS can provide when power fails.

Thanks
 

A:Daisy chaining power backup (UPS)

I wouldn't think there would be an issue. I think the first UPS should output a cleaner signal than the wall does (sine wave vs blocky), which the 2nd UPS should be fine with.

Daisy chaining can only be done if the source video card has either a DP (DisplayPort) out port or a mDP (MiniDisplayPort) out port. You need to remove that video card and install one that has DP out or mDP out.

I want to hookup an older scanner to my computer. An adapter or card is cost prohibitive and I was advised that the best way to do it is to daisy chain the scanner off of my printer.

I have an HP Laser Jet II Printer and an Envisions 24 Pro Scanner (U-Max Engine). I was told that the scanner should be at the end of the chain. The HP Printer has a serial port next to the printer port connection. Also, there is an unassigned space next to the serial port. The unassigned space has a metal plate fastened with two screws and the words written accross that say "other devices".

My question is -- "Does the serial port on the HP support data out or only data in"? The Envisions 24 Pro Scanner has a 50-pin scuzzy connection on the scanner side and the other end of the cable fits the serial port on the printer perfectly. I haven't tried plugging it in because the printer cable has a 90 degree style connector that is blocking the serial port. I figured it wouldn't be worth the trouble of finding another printer cable unless I knew for sure that the serial port on the printer supported data in?

Thanks,

The viop router addy = 192.168.15.1

I turned off DHCP Server on the G router and filled out the routing info pointing at :
destination ip = 192.168.1.0
subnetm = 225.225.225.0
default gateway = 192.168.15.1

PC's hooked to both routers get to WAN and LAN just fine as does this laptop (wireless)
but I can no longer get to the G router to check / change settings - HELP


I guess I dont realy need to anymore - it's all set up ..... but I should be able to, no??
 

A:Daisy chaining two routers - I lose the ability to access the GUI on the second one.

192.168.1.0 is NOT a valid IP address. You cannot have an IP ending in 0. Since your gateway is 192.168.1.1, change your IP to 192.168.1.2 0r anything through 254.

Hi all

I have read so many posts on different forums concerning daisy chaining routers and there seem to be so many opinions out there that my head is spinning, so my apologies if this has been asked before, but I could really use some help!

Okay, my normal setup is Internet --> Cable Modem --> Wired Router (SMC 7004 ABR) (Router A, say) WAN port --> PC1, PC2, PC3 & PC4 on Router A LAN ports.

Router A default settings are:

IP Address: 192.168.2.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 (not changeable)
DHCP Server: Enabled
Start IP: 192.168.2.2
End IP: 192.168.2.40

I got a good deal on Boxing Day on a Wireless Router ($9.88) (TRENDnet TEW-432BRP) (Router B, say) and thought I'd use it to add wireless capabilities to my (already "full" (4 ports)) home network so I could use additional laptops around the house without having to be hard-wired to the network.

Router B default settings are:

IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 (changeable)
DHCP Server: Enabled
Start IP: 192.168.1.100
End IP: 192.168.1.199
All ports WAN/LAN are Auto-MDIX

What I did was disconnect the cable from PC 4 on Router A and plug it into Router B WAN port, and reconnect PC 4 to one of the LAN ports on the back of Router B.

PC4 and any wirelessly connected laptop can access the Internet through Router B --> Router A --> Cable Modem --> Internet without any problem, as can any of the PCs 1, 2 or 3 still connected to Router A. ... Read more

A:Daisy chaining routers & Windows printer sharing

Hi

Seems a bit long winded, for a few pounds/bucks/kroner/yen buy a hub to extend the ports on a router.

Also consider buying a jetdirect printer box, it allows you to share a printer with any PC.

The problem you have with the routers is that you have a different range of IP's on router B to router A, the only other way round it is to see if the routers will act as a bridge, this means that router B will get its IP address via router A and stay in the same IP range.

Hello all, As the Yoga 720 15'' has only one Thunderbolt port, with no other ports for connecting more displays, I'm looking for a solution for connecting two monitors through this single port. The problem is that the Thunderbolt 3 to dual DisplayPort adapters do not seem to be working on this laptop for some reason according to threads on this forum. (although it has the appropriate hardware I suppose?)I saw a solution using the Lenovo Thunderbolt Dock, but it's quite expensive... I thought to myself: suppose I have two monitors that supported DisplayPort daisy chaining, could I use this ability and connect them to the laptop? Connecting one monitor directly to the laptop, and then connecting the other monitor to the first one using daisy chaining. Like so:Yoga -> Thunderbolt to DispalyPort adapter -> Monitor 1 -> DisplayPort -> Monitor 2.  I couldn't find any info about this method (only that it is possible on the XPS 15 which also has Thunderbot with two lanes only...)  Have someone already tried this method? Or could try it? (pretty please... )Or could at least tell me if it is possible? I'm really looking forward to buying this laptop and this is the main reason that stops me...  Note: I am aware about the bandwith limitations. I plan to use only two 2K displays. Thank you!

Hi, first of all to start I know that this is user based, but I don't know how to get in touch with actual customer support.  I bought a Thinkpad E560 laptop with an i7 core processor in 2015 for use with school and used it lightly everyday. It would travel in my backpack to and from school, and never got bumped around or had fallen. Slowly in 2016, it started to have issues with the screen, and I thought it had been fixed by purchasing a new screen and but the problems steadily arose. We then thought it was the graphics cable so we changed that to find that it didn't work at all. I took it into the shop again and they looked and found it was the board failure after trying different parts to make it function.  I thought this was strange because I only had had it for abot a year and 3 months at that point which seemed like an awfully short time to have it fail on me like that.  I had bought a Lenovo because I had watched so many reviews and it seemed like the best choice for me at the time because I needed a powerful laptop. I didn't think that light every day usage would resort in the board failing within a year and 3 months. I only bought warranty for a year because I was sure that it was going to last me a long time. I saw that other people had issues with the e560. Is there anything I can do at this point? Or am I just out of luck? It was my first Lenovo product

I have not found an option to turn this pop-up off. In addition, this is not a traditional windows window- I must choose one option from the "audio devices" list and then press the microscopic "X" to close it.

I purchased my Thinkpad around December-January time, and ever since there have been some reoccurring issues. For one, with the keyboard, occasionally some keys stick: say I'll be holding down the S key and then release, sometimes it keeps acting as if it's still being held. Also, the entire numberpad has ceased to function; around this time last week it worked perfectly fine, I used to use the calculator, lock, internet and file explorer buttons at the top of the number pad all the time, but one day they just stopped working. The numbers themselves, as well as the NumLock key and all the others, also don't work. I've tried restarting, performing scans, installing drivers and all sorts, but with no luck.  Finally, with the mousepad, occasionally sections of it will stop working. As I type this, I can use the right hand side of my mousepad to move the mouse, but the left side won't work at all. Sometimes it will change, with the center of the mousepad not working, whereas the very right and left of the mousepad do. Usually reinstalling a driver or restarting the computer fixes this, but it keeps happening and is very frustrating. This laptop is only a few months old, I'm not too pleased with the problems that keep popping up, and I'm hoping someone can be of help! Thank you

I have a 17-day old new Thinkpad E560.  Spilled about a teaspoon of white wine on the keyboard when I jostled the glass (it didn't tip over).  Keyboard started acting flaky, spontaneously producing long series of a's and 1's.   While I couldn't see any evidence of remaining liquid after dabbing up what small amount was evident, I figured a trickle may have seeped inside, and let it dry overnight. 24 hours I tried again, and while there was no erratic behavior, about a third of the keys -- while they felt normal -- were non-functional. I recalled that the Lenovo specs for this model say it has a Spill Resistant keyboard.  But I see no open holes on the back of the case.  And I pulled out the keyboard and see it has plastic across its entire back.  Clearly this isn't a Spill Resistant keyboard.  How can the Lenovo specs, and many resellers' advertising, tout that it *is* Spill Resistant?

Hi, I am having trouble booting from a 2nd HDD installed where the DVD ROM goes I have tried with both SDD & HDD configurations on 3x E560 PCs that I have for work & none work On the E550 it works perfect although this has a different looking BIOS I am using the latest BIOS with these E560s The BIOS does not see the 2nd HDD at all in Boot Options If I boot into Windows the the 2nd HDD is seen as an external drive This issue feels like a problem with BIOS, I wonder if anyone else has encountered this problem & found away to overcome it Any suggestions are welcome Thanks in advance for your help 

A:ThinkPad E560 Booting From 2nd HDD Caddy Issue

Hello and welcome,
 
How was the drive in the caddy made bootable?  Was the OS installed while the drive was in the caddy on the machine in question - where it fails?
 
Are you booting in legacy or UEFI mode?
 
Are you booting the same drive (with the same OS on it, not reinstalling the OS) in the machine that works and the one that doesn't?
 
I'm wondering if the 560 is UEFI and teh 550 is legacy.
 
Z.

Hallo, mein E560 nutzt stets nur die eingebaute Intel HD Graphics 520, NICHT aber die dedizierte AMD Radeon R7 M370:(A) In den Anzeigeeinstellungen wird nur die Intel HD gelistet      (Systemsteuerung -> Darstellung&Anzeige -> Bildschirmauflösung -> Erweiterte ... -> Grafikkarte: kennt nur Intel HD)(B) FurMark listet als einzige GPU bei GPU1 die Intel HD Ich habe Windows 10 (vorinstalliert), 64-bit. Geprüft habe ich: (1) Im Gerätemanager sind beide Grafikkarten gelistet und habe aktuelle Treiber (= Aktualisierung bewirkt nichts).AMDDatum: 06.08.2015Version: 15.201.1101.0IntelDatum: 28.10.2015Version: 20.19.15.4312 (2) AMD Catalyst Center ist installiert. Ich habe dies aktualisiert und in "umschaltbare Grafiken - globale Einstellungen"die "maximale Leistung" ausgewählt. Das ändert an den eingangs beschriebenen Beobachtungen nichts.Bei den anwendungsbezogenen Einstellungen kann ich für zahlreiche Anwendungen wie z.B. auch Firefox nichts einstellen (Schloß-Symbol) (3) Der Lenovo-Support konnte mir bislang nicht helfen bis auf den Rat ins BIOS zu schauen.Dort kann ich aber keine  Einstellungen zur Grafikkarte machen. Die BIOS-Version ist 1.12. Mit 1.13 ist laut Release Notes nichts dazu gekommen, was mir weiterhelfen könnte. Never touch a running system - ich mache nicht nur aus Spaß ein BIOS-Update. (4) Auf http://support.lenovo.com/de/de/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-Edge-laptops/... Read more
