The system will crash every game after a random amount of time playing either by crashing the application, deadlocking my PC or simply giving me a BSOD. I've cleaned my system up and there is sufficient storage and hardware specs to run my games. I am suspicious that it is the RAM causing it but I have no way of finding out. tips?

    Best answer: One of the real advantages of Ethernet over WiFi is if you are playing online games. WiFi is a shared half-duplex interface. Other WiFi users will cause interference. Also, WiFi shares the wireless spectrum with other users. If a near neighbour has a WiFi network and they are doing a large download, then it can seriously slow down your WiFi if it is using a wireless channel close to the one you are using. Ethernet is a dedicated full-duplex connection. You are not sharing that connection to your router with anyone else. Also, unlike WiFi, Ethernet can send acknowledgement packets in one direction at the same time as it sends data packets in the other direction. With online gaming, random delays caused by other users or other networks can upset some games.

    If you are getting 18 Mbps from a claimed 20 Mbps ISP service, going to Ethernet is not going to make much difference. It will only become significant if you have a local server - such as storing movies on a desktop PC or a file server, and then streaming them to a different PC in your home. If both connect by WiFi then it will be slower than if one uses WiFi and the other uses Ethernet, or both use Ethernet.Having said that, you will probably find that going between to devices in your home is faster than 20 Mbps over WiFi as the ISP connection will not be involved in such a transfer. Data will go from one device to the router and then from the router to the other device with nothing going to or from the ISP.

    I hope this helps.

  • My Compoter wont tur n on ?

    Best answer: You need to clarify, Windows got damaged or computer is silent and dead? First may have been the result of those activities but second scenario is much more like wear and tear of PSU component.

I have also rolled back (and also reinstalled) my drivers, changed my wireless device port and ran a systemcare program but it is still very slow. Is this perhaps something to do with my hardware? im stumped for solutions.

  • If I connected to a wifi using my phone and 'forget' connection after using it, will the admin know that I have connected to the network?

    Best answer: "Forget" only clears the entry from your phone.

    If your employer's network does any kind of logging, or even retains DHCP assignments, they can find out.

    Don't violate company policy if you want to keep your job.

  • Can Facebook suggest me as a friend to someone who only has my number?

    I started talking to a guy I met recently online and we exchanged cell phone numbers. I was careful not to share my personal details with him; no pictures, he only knew my first name, and the state I lived in. A few days later he claimed that he had found my facebook profile because I came up as a suggested friend. We have no mutual friends, schools, or groups as he lives across the country from me. I have contact sync off, so nobody in my contacts should be pushed to friend me. I also do not have my mobile number displayed on my profile, and within privacy settings I do not allow my profile to come up on search engines. I want to know, how likely is it actually that Facebook suggested me to him, or that he went out of his way to find me? I do have instagram and messenger, although not sure if they would be part of the issue. Are there any settings on Facebook that I can use to avoid this in the future?

    Hello, I have a VERY PETTY housemate who thinks he is god and restricts my Internet. I rent a room in a house near my college with a bunch of other students. One of the guys there is in charge of the WiFi. When he gets pissed off he uses his admin privileges and turns off the Internet or restricts it on just my devices. I am a college student with deadlines I NEED MY WIFI. So here’s what happens. I am using the Internet and suddenly my page goes blank and I am unable to use it. The message on my laptops WiFi says “connected, no internet” nobody else in the house has this message and their WiFi is working fine. Our router is a netgear router. I believe he has put on a timer as well on my Internet.. So my WiFi times out at 10 pm every night like clockwork, on the dot.Devices he is using to block me: I believe he is using an app on his phone. Which is an Android. Devices that are blocked for me: iPhone and windows laptop. I believe he is using some sort of parental restrictions program or some sort of crap. So tldr? WiFi is blocked. Device says connected. Need Internet. There is a set time when connection goes out. Big questions I need answering: How is he doing this?What can I do to combat this?How do I prevent him from blocking me? Is there a way to hide on the WiFi network? Any other things that you feel need to be added about this to further help me would be welcomed.

I'd like to crank it up a bit - namely to about 2.2 Gig - but there does not appear to be any option for this in the BIOS settings. The machine was bought as "Refurbished". Asus X Series. Windows 10. American Megatrends BIOS v205. If I need to upgrade the BIOS to do this, I may need a little help - or at least a link to how to do this. OK, I have flashed BIOSes in the past, but that was in the days of floppy disks!!! Thanks!
