problem with windows 7 not using correct metric

Q: problem with windows 7 not using correct metric

I have had windows 7 for a few weeks and every time the PC is rebooted the Metric for both the Lan (172.17) and Wifi(192.169)goes back to 20, the Lan is set to Automatic and the wifi is set to 10, has anybody seen this problem before?

Active Routes:
Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.17.96.4 172.17.99.156 20
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.169.1.1 192.169.1.14 20

Preferred Solution: problem with windows 7 not using correct metric

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: problem with windows 7 not using correct metric

Sounds quite bizzare, Windows assigns a lower metric to the gateway it can communicate the fastest with, but in this case both have been assigned 20.
If you've manually assigned a gateway and metric you should see that in the list of persistent routes.

I wonder if your issue is similar to that in http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/47280-how-configure-multiple-gateways.html

I'm stumped and have emailed MS as it works as expected in Win XP

Hi all,

I have 2 adapter, same model same speed. When I use "route print" command to check the table, they are the same metric.

I need to use the designated adapter to connect a server. How can I make sure this adapter is higher priority in the route table. 
Remark: This PC is not allow to set the route table. I have to use the automatic metric algorithm.

When ever I go to log on to my Dell Latitude E7440 with windows 7 Professional x64 I get an error screen saying that windows could not find a bio metric device.

Hi!
I have a question that I can't find the answer for, I've been searching like crazy but keep finding the same responses which have in my case proven useless.
The situation is this: I have one router and one computer, the computer has two network interface cards which are both connected to the router and given IP addresses. I have made the metrics in Windows such that normal traffic SHOULD always choose NIC 1 and I have in the application "Tixati" set it manually to use NIC 2. I have then set my firewall to only allow the application "Tixati" to use NIC 2 while blocking it from using NIC 1. So in theory everything on my computer should use NIC 1 except "Tixati" which should use NIC 2.
The problem: The issue is that for some reason Windows will sometimes think it's a good idea to just straight up switch over to using NIC 2 for ALL traffic, even though it has a waaaay higher metric (static permanent routes) and the firewall is blocking access for the applications on that interface, which results in the applications being straight up blocked. This is temporarily solved by disabling and enabling NIC 1... Until it happens again.
The cause: I just straight up don't know, I do however think it has something to do with Windows probably trying to use a different NIC at the slightest hint of an issue with the main NIC, it often happens during web browsing and I even found one specific website that seemingly caused this issue every time I reloaded...

Hey!

I have a laptop running Windows Vista with all latest updates from Microsoft and I have an issue connecting to a wireless network.

When I connect to the wireless network (with "Excelent" signal strength), Windows gets all the correct parameters, IP Address, Gateway, Subnet mask, DNS, everything is exactly the same (just the IP ending changes of course) of another computer running Windows 7. However, the Windows Network and Sharing Center shows "Identifying..." for around 15s and then shows "Unidentified Network (public network)" and the laptop can't ping even the Gateway that it's showing on the "ipconfig /all". On the router side, it shows a list of connected devices, showing the computer in question as connected, but it can't ping it neither.

Does anyone has a clue on how I can solve this issue?

This computer connects to other wireless networks, other computers access the Internet thru this same wireless network and this computer connects to the Internet thru the same router using a cable.

Thanks a lot!

Hello,

Lately, I've noticed all of my applications (Word, Photoshop, etc.) use the metric system of measurement. I'm not sure why this started, but I'd like it to go back to the imperial system. Do you know how I can change this default setting? Thanks!

Chris

A:Metric system!

I don't know about Photoshop, but in Word you can go to

Tools -> Options -> General tab and check that the measurement units are in inches

Entering "measurement" in Windows Help gained this information:

To change the way your computer displays numbers
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats, click Customize.
On the Numbers tab, specify any changes you want to make.
Among items you can change are the decimal symbol and list separator, the format used for negative numbers and leading zeros, and the measurement system (U.S. or metric).

Note

To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.

Hi:
I've started a virtual machine which has two nics with qemu-kvm on server 192.168.6.2, one nic with qemu-kvm param "-redir tcp:40037::3389" is in "user" mode which IP is 10.0.2.15, so if I connect to 192.168.6.2:40037, it will map to
10.0.2.15:3389, the other is in bridge mode which IP is 192.168.6.100, my pc is 192.168.6.220, In the vm, "route print" shows two default gateway as below:
0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      192.168.6.1    192.168.6.100    5

I capture packet on nic 10.0.2.15, when connect, the src IP  is 192.168.6.220, src mac is the mac of 10.0.2.2, all these are right, but when reply, why it still select default gateway of 10.0.2.2? I mean the dst is 192.168.6.220 and there is a route

Hi,

I'm looking for an solution for an random issue on my clients computers (Windows 7 or 10).
They connected to an business vpn with Juniper network connect.
As usual, to be sure the computer use the vpn network to make dns reolution etc... the virtual network card created by juniper is using metric 1 to have the top priority.
That's working well since 1 or 2 years.
For an unknown reason When they connect to the vpn some computers keep the internet gateway instead of using the one provided by juniper vpn...
The solution we've found is to edit the juniper metric from 1 to 2 and after ipconfig /flushdns the route table is using the vpn gateway..the pb is, juniper create an virtual card each connections, so it is deleted when the users disconnect his vpn session.
I don't know why but the computers seems not update the route table when connecting to vpn..
We tried :
 - changing from ethernet to wireless or 3G/4G internet source
 - change the network card order in advanced parameters from the networking center..
 - route -f is not workingg

Do you have any idea..?

I looked forward to opening 'publisher' for the first time to see if I could produce an item to fit into a magazine/newspaper.

The horizontal and vertical rulers in Microsoft Publisher 2007 can be changed to display a different type of measurement unit. By default, the rulers in Publisher display inches, but you can change them to a variety of other measurement units.
For microsoft Publisher 2007.

Instructions

1 Once you're in your document, choose the "Tools" menu, and click "Options" to open the "Options" dialog box.2 Select the "General" tab at the top of the "Options" dialog box, if necessary, to display the basic settings for Microsoft Publisher.3 Click the arrow to display the "Measurement units" drop-down list from the "Options" dialog box. These are the different types of measurements you can display on the Publisher rulers. Choose the measurement you want from choices that include inches, centimeters, picas, points or pixels.4 Click the "OK" button to close the "Options" dialog box and return to your Publisher document. Your rulers will display with the measurement you picked. Use the same process to switch back to the original measurement or to choose a new unit of measurement.

Hey guys,
I am using a 3G modem (Virgin Mobile MC760). In short; I have 2 connections; 1 is wired ethernet and the other is this 3G modem. I want to be able to use the 3G modem in a guest Vmware system while still using my regular ethernet for everything else in the host. (Unfortunately this modem doesn't work in VM so I am stuck having 2 internet connections in Win7 and trying to route this).

I have read up on metric values but heres the problem. I set the ethernet for a metric value of 1 and the 3g connection as 9999, ethernet alone works fine, as soon as I connect the 3g modem it takes priority and changes my metric value of the ethernet higher and creates a 0.0.0.0 default gateway, when my ethernet is 192.168.1.1. The only way around this is if I disconnect my ethernet and reconnect it, it will then take priority and have both be connected and use ethernet.

Is there any solution to this?

The company I work for has recently gotten a new Internet connection at their farm across the street. Originally the time clock was placed there and monitored over the LAN on the computer that I am at right now. Now that there is a new connection I need to know how to connect the time clock on the other internet connection to this PC. Networking has never been my strong suit. any help would be appreciated!

-Bumbers

P.S. The time Clock is an anviz EP300 and the PC is running windows 8.1
 

A:Solved: Connect Bio-metric time clock to another network?

Hi Bumbers, and welcome to TSG.

Does the new connection at the other building have at least one static public IP address? If not, things may get a bit more complicated.

Beyond that, you will need to set up whatever modems and routers are being used across the street to port forward from the Internet public IP address to the private IP address of the time clock on the LAN. Having the time clock use a static IP address on the LAN, rather than get its IP address via DHCP would also simplify things.

It appeared to me that only registered users on the Anviz web site can download product manuals. I have no idea if or how the time clock can be properly configured to use a static IP address, the port numbers used, or the type of security it offers. Once you have port forwarding configured, the time clock will be exposed to attacks from the Internet.

After you have everything configured at the other location, you should be able to use the public IP address of the other location to access the clock from your location.

Hello, new to the forums. Have had issues in the past with the "Insert correct DVD" issue, particularly on Need For Speed Carbon, and a few other games. Just finished revamping my system (upgraded to 680i and dual 7950 GX2's for QUAD SLI), and installed a new DVD-RW drive figuring this would eliminate my problem. I installed Gears of War, but when I tried to play it, I get the same error... "Please insert correct DVD." I have tried everything on the microsoft site, updated all my drivers, tried borrowing a friends disk, even returned the DVD drive and got another one. Still no luck. Was on the phone for an hour with a microsoft tech support, and couldn't figure anything out. I figured maybe the game wasn't SLI compatible, so I installed an old 7300 VGA card I had... nothing. Everytime I post in a forum about this, I get 50 idiots telling me that the game I just paid $50 for at best buy is a pirated copy and that I have the DVD in a CD drive. I'm just tired of buying games I can't play on a machine that I have spent a lot of money turning into a gaming rig. I'm at wits end and need some assistance. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Main questions: 1) Has the disk already failed or "predicted" to fail?,

2) Is it possible to Image / BU the OS or Applications partitions, given errors below, w/o getting so many possible errors (if selected "ignore bad sectors), that it might be easier to reinstall? Wouldn't chance of a restored image of OS / Applications working, depend entirely on # of bad sectors & content, or even drive's current ability to consistently read files - based on reported disk errors?...One error was "medium error (read test element failed)"

BU of personal data files w/ some errors (that might be fixed later) is another matter.

3) Given reported errors, would a complete disk format possibly solve the disk's reported problems? Some articles from HDD mfg's say "large % of bad disks aren't really bad." "Just need reformatting & possibly marking bad sectors." Don't know how accurate that is.

Here's what I would do it that's what I saw:

1) start->run->cleanmgr to remove temp files (why waste time fixing & saving these?)

2) Backup or COPY personal data to an external USB device;
get a command prompt Start->Run->cmd to see the path and then CD to My Documents
This is where the large proportion of your documents are located

3) get the event viewer (start->run->eventvwr.msc)
Open the system tab and scroll down looking for Warning(in yellow) DISK events.
There should be one per real I/O error - - just count'm up. The more you find the worse the condition.

Decision time: IF there's too many, plan on replacing the HD, else attempt step(4) to attempt to continue using the system as-is

4) Boot into Safe Mode and use start->run->->CHKDSK /F /R which will take hours.

I can't even try to install my new GTA IV from the disc and it shows the CRC error from my own brand new disc! Even small files and when using WinRAR, I still cant fix it! But later I was talking to a technician and he did a remote to my computer. He accessed to my computer and he actually found out the problem! I have registry errors! My applications are going down one by one because of this CRC error!

He said that I have to pay $169 dollars for 1 year but it's to expensive. But I learned from him that it's coming from my Event Viewer. It showed 23,000 thousand application errors. It must be the reason why it caused my CRC error! The technician said that one by one your files are going down. He is right! Some of my games are not starting to work or function properly! Everytime I install a software or game is always showing it's corrupted and CRC error. I don't know if this is all true but here is a picture of what he showed me.

Is this really true? I don't know if it is. But could you please help me figure this out and fix it. It's preventing me from downloading anything and I have been suffering from this for over 1 year! It's making me mad and it wont let me download a game that my friend plays so I can play with h... Read more

A:CRC error. (Found out the problem but is this correct?)

The Event Viewer is a Windows system tool that shows systems messages. It is not the CAUSE of the errors. The error messages are just collected together in Event Viewer for you to examine and diagnose.

Since you say there are 'CRC' errors, it probably relates to your Hard Drive, probably bad sectors. Open explorer, right click on C drive, choose Properties, Tools tab, and check the hard drive. You have to reboot to start the checking process.

Hey, I Just got an error after configuring my msconfig. Windows isnt detecting my creative soundblaster audio card, it worked fine yesterday. I wonder if I accidently unchecked the wrong thing out of my startup. I had my processes up to about 34 yesterday now they are down to about 25 and I cannot access my add hardware in control panel. I have alot of programs that are not running as well in my "services"(kinda like msconfig) (most are manual or disabled) in administrative tools. That were running yesterday. Just want to know if any of you know what could be the service that isnt running that is preventing my audio device from working. Please respond.

It would sort of help if we knew what you have disabled..

I have a Dell desktop running Vista. I've noticed in the past few weeks, the computers time is not correct. The minutes are normally right, but the hour is off by 2-3 hours. Its not a big problem but I have to go in and change the time every few days. I recently had to replace the memory due to it dying on me but I can't imagine that has anything to do with it. Any ideas on what my problem could be?

A:Problem with Vista keeping correct time

This can be a dying CMOS battery on your motherboard. You need to replace it.Open your computer case, look on your motherboard for a 3V coin cell as shown in the picture :Press the latch out and battry would pop out. Replace with a cell of the same rating. Normally the rating is 3V CR2032

Hey,
I am having an issue where after right-clicking things and then going about my business, the boxes are left hanging and there is nothing I can do to get rid of them. Can anyone explain why this is happening and how to stop it? As of right now, the only way to get rid of these is to open the task manager and end the dsw.exe (Desktop Window Manager) process.
Examples of the "Boxes" I was referring to:
"Preferences"

"Delete.torrent + Data"
-------------------
EDIT:
I have also just figured out that the problem occurs when I simply right-click and select something (i.e. rightclicking a tab in google chrome and selecting close, or right-clicking text and selecting copy). This happens only for the first thing I right-click, as anything else I right-click will not stay stuck on my screen, only the first thing I right-clicked and selected.

Hi,

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and have just purchased a new Ati HD5770 graphics card to replace my old NVidia 8800GTS 512.

It worked fine and I installed the Ati drivers from the ATi website. However just recently, I've been experiencing problems with the desktop display; lock up/freezes, horizontal lines and artifacts and small dots/specs on the desktop and any webpage. I've tested just about everything and I can't figure it out. Interestingly it only started happening when I finished (exited from) a 2 hours long stint playing Dead Space game, so thought it could be an overheating problem. But when I played it previously and also Stalker, the display was fine.

My RAM seems to run fine as I've stressed it and changed them over into different DIMM slots.
My NEC monitor is working fine as I've tested it on my television with the same problems. I also tested with DVi and HDMI cables changed over and still same problem.
Thinking it was an overheating problem, I've shut down the computer for a long period restrarted with the same problems and cleaned out the large Coolermaster Cosmos S case of any dust. I've even cleaned the CPU heatsink and applied new thermal pasted so can't be overheating. My temps are fine.
I can boot into safe mode and the problem goes away suggesting the graphics card hardware is working ok.
However as soon as I un-install the Ati drivers (Catalyst 10.2) and use the gerenci VGA driver the problem dissapears. So it must be a Ati driver... Read more

A:HOw can i correct the device driver problem of my dvd drive?

First, uninstall the drive in Device Manager and reboot.

If that doesn't do it, try this:

Download CDgone, right click on the downloaded file and choose Extract All, then double-click on cdgone.reg Say "Yes" to the merge question and then reboot. See if the drives have returned. You may have to re-install CD burning applications, since they're the ones that tinker with the filter setting in the registry that caused the drives to disappear.

This is my first posting here. So far this forum has helped with several issues to get me going, but now I have one which I would like some advice on please.

I have several older programs installed amongst which is Word 2003. It has to run in Admin mode to work correctly, but when I click on a doc file it comes up with an error in Word. The same file is ok if loaded normally.

I have discovered that if I drop UAC universally then all works correctly but I am not sure if this is the correct way to go about it. Advice please

Thanks

A:Problem with correct file associations in Win7 Pro/64

Welcome to the Seven Forums (as a member :-)

>It has to run in Admin mode to work correctly...
What does not work when you do not run the Word app as admin?
>...but when I click on a doc file it comes up with an error in Word
Explorer is running at the medium integrity level (non-admin). It is limited in what it can pass along to a program that is running at high integrity level (run as admin). So what you see there is normal.
>I have discovered that if I drop UAC universally then all works correctly...
Once you turn off UAC, explorer and Word are both running at the same high integrity level (run as admin).
>...but I am not sure if this is the correct way to go about it.
It is best to keep the UAC turned on. It protects you from lots of things.

OK so I have two monitors of 1920 by 1200 pixels each, one HP the second Iiyama. Each is supplied by a DVI cable (I have two Nvidia Geforce 210 graphics cards each of which has a DVI output at the native resolution). Recently the Iiyama stopped being identified as an Iiyama and was just labelled generic pnp monitor, whilst the HP is always seen as an HP. Plus the default resolution of the Iiyama went down to 1024 by 768.

I've manually adjusted the resolution of the Iiyama back to 1920x1200 and 60Hz progressive, which it accepts, but the problem is that the monitor text is extremely fuzzy and difficult to read but the resolution is the correct 1920x1200 resolution. I believe the output from the video card is sharp since if I take a screenshot (Printscreen) of the very fuzzy text and view that portion of the screenshot on my HP monitor it's perfectly sharp so it must be something happening at the level of the monitor.

If I swap DVI cables around or connect to a different video card DVI then it's still really fuzzy and labelled generic pnp.

I read in a few places about EDID settings but am nervous about trying to flash my monitor or do other crazy stuff without being totally sure what the problem is. Can some kind person suggest what I should do next?

A:Correct resolution but very blurry text, non pnp problem through DVI

Did you get a driver disk with the monitor? If so try reinstalling the software for it.

I had been having problems with Windows XP Professional- blue screen crashes. So I decided to do a fresh install of Windows XP Pro. First I updated the motherboard BIOS to the latest, 23. Next I booted, hit F4 & entered the RAID setup. Previously I had RAID 0, but I deleted the RAID, did a low level format of both hard drives from the RAID setup, & then created a RAID 1(mirrowing). In my motherboard BIOS, the Hard disk priority is set to "on chip SATA RAID". My serial hard drives are connected to SATA 3 & 4 on the motherboard.
Next I rebooted with my WindowsXP Professional CD loaded, and came to Windows Setup, pressed F6, then "S" when prompted and loaded VIA Destination version 310E SATA drivers (which I downloaded fron VIA's web site). At the Windows Professional Setup screen, "To Set Up Windows Now, Press Enter" which I did. "Setup did not find any Hard Drives in your computer " is what I got. In the BIOS, there are no hard drives listed.
Can anyone advise so that I can load my OS & get my system running again? Did I use the correct RAID drivers? Am I correctly set in the motherboard BIOS at Hard disk priority to "on chip SATA RAID"?
On the original CD that came with the motherboard there are HPT 374 & HPT 372 drivers on the CD. Does SATA RAID ports 3 & 4 use Highpoint or the VIA SATA drivers?
Thanks so much. I am about to start kicking the dog!
