I bought a MacBook Air thinking I would be able to surf the net wirelessly. Can't do it. It works great with HDMI cable, but I don't want a cable trailing across the room. Wish I had bought a Dell!!! So, can I dedicate my old Dell Inspiron 2200 for this function? I can upgrade the 4 MB RAM to 1 GB if that would work. The Dell uses Internet Explorer, Windows XP and a Netgear WNA3100 Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter. I have upgraded the video and BIOS on the Dell, and the drivers on the Netgear Adapter. I have a 2Wire modem/router from AT&T with 3.00 mps. My new 32" LG HDTV is 1080p with 60Hz, but it is NOT a smart HDTV. I know I won't get 1080p with the old Dell, but what could I expect to get? Roku will not give me surfing capability in a web browser.
I am having an odd problem with my laptop not getting good wireless internet signal when connected to HDMI port on my HDTV. When i flip the laptop screen up the signal goes back to normal . I dont get it... , someone mentioned i should change the power settings to performance, that seemed to not have any affect. my desktop also has a poor wireless signal when connected to the HDMI port on my HDTV.
I can burn a video file to USB stick and then insert that stick in my new HDTV's usb port, and the television recognises and plays the file. So it seems reasonable that a wireless (perfect) or wired (ok too) connection could be made to stream the content. No?I keep looking at the USB wifi sticks that allow filesharing between laptops and wonder why I couldn't just use a pair of them to link the two devices. But I can find no information out there at all on this.My problem is that movies burned to dvd or usbstick fail to play about half the time via the television usb port or via the blu ray player. "Error, no video file detected". And subtitles are very very dicey. Samsung's firmware (latest updates installed) just doesn't seem to handle files nearly as well as most software based players. VLC player on the laptop (and most players for that matter) play movies without trouble. Included subtitle files always sync up just fine via VLC without any prompting. So I'm looking for a link for watching movies via vlcplayer on my laptop and streaming them to my HDTV or Blu Ray player.
PN50C550 samsung HDTV. HP 8510w Laptop. Linux Mint 10 (have already posted in the linux section). BD-C6500 Samsung blu ray player.
Have HDMI on the laptop and on the TV. Unfortunately, my Nvidia card will not do audio in Linux. A known issue. I've posted in the linux section to no avail.I also am having difficulties running samsung's shareware utilities in linux.Laptop has ethernet, 1394a (firewire), vga, usb, and hdmi ports.HDTV has ethernet, vga (hd-15), usb, hdmi, but no 1394a.Blu Ray player has ethernet (now occupied to router) and usb port on front panel and HDMI (now occupied to HDTV)
I got a Smart TV (A Sony KDL-60EX645) and once trying the built-in wireless, well, to put it simply, it sucked. Badly. Although the TV IS a few rooms over from the wireless hub, my 4 year old laptop's built-in wireless gets great signal and I can stream video through it, but this TV buffers every 1 minute or so. I've tried plugging in a wireless USB adapter into the one of the USB ports on the TV, but nothing happens and the TV decides to connect from the built-in wireless adapter anyways. I think the TV might only take media through the USB ports. The TV does have a LAN port on the back of the TV, but I don't want to run another cord through my wall.
i am connecting my laptop pc to my hdtv via a wireless gizmo. the gizmo has a dongle transmitter connected to the pc via the hdmi port and the usb port for power, on the receiver hdtv end the receiver box connects to the hdtv through the hdtv hdmi port and to the a/c power on the wall, all this is to replace a hdmi to hdmi cable connection. i hope i,m clear so far. now i want to clone my pc screen to my hdtv screen i.e. i want to see the exact same image or video on both my pc screen and on my hdtv screen and here lies my problem, as i stated in my original post, i am unable to do so using the fn/f8 keys or the microsoft key/p options i have on my pc keyboard. using these keys i can see a video on either the pc laptop screen or on the hdtv screen but not on both at the same time which is what cloning or duplicating means? the internet posts related to this issue recommend using my nvidia control panel to achieve cloning, i have also tried that approach with no sucess because when i go there, i do not have choice for cloning, it seems it doesnt recognize or detect a second monitor?
how to connect a pc to a hdtv wirelessly. The tv is to be used like a monitor. I want to display a PowerPoint file. Currently there is a lan already setup in the workplace. I have looked at some pc to tv devices but am not sure if they would work. My company's TIS department wants to put a wireless card in the workstation pc but is not sure how to connect the tv as a monitor?

Internet AT&T using Netgear wireless router B90-755025-15, would llke to connect to Phillips HDTV to live stream various movies as well as other entertainment. Do you have suggestions regarding device(s) to use (example Western Digital TV Live Streaming media player with built in WiFi, stream content, remote.
I have a Sony Bravia KDL46EX640 which comes with a wireless USB adapter. When I first bought this, I set up wireless network and it went fine. I was able to use the applications for video streaming.
I was trying it again now and it doesn't work. It seems like I can't even connect to my wireless network. I tried to set it up again but it can't find my wireless network. I have tried resetting the TV too (UP arrow + Power button on TV) and still doesn't work. Contacted Sony support but they didn't assist. I have a laptop and ipad connected to the router in the same room so signal is not a problem.
Basically the problem is that the HD media steamed through the E4200 router has a significant lag on the TV. So details..I have the Linksys E4200 wifi router and want to stream the HD video from my computer to TV.The connection schema is pretty straightforward:Computer with 10/100 mbit network adapter-----(network cable)-->E4200----(WIFI)----->TV with 802.11n WIFI adapter.Also 10(ten) mbit Internet connection cable is plugged into WIFI router. The questions are:
1) Can the 10 mbit internet connection affect the speed of the media content being streamed through the E4200 router?
2) Does it make sense to buy the WIFI 802.11 n adapter and use it instead of the network adapter / cable in the connection schema mentioned above?
I have a DIR-655 that's wired via 40' of Cat5 Ethernet cable to a bus near my Sony HDTV. I get great reception and speed and all the available HD channels via my Time Warner Cable subscription.
My problem is that since subscribing to NetFlix (streaming only) when I stream a NetFlix movie I get "reloading/pauses" every few minutes. NetFlix says it requires 1.5 Mbps but Internet speed tests show I'm consistently getting between 5 and 10 Mbps.
I also have a Sony 3D DVD Player that is NetFlix enabled and when the pausing gets too bad I switch to it and sometimes it works, at other times it pauses just as frequently as the TV.
I always turn the PC off when watching TV.

I show up at this business. They have about 40-50 systems. They have a 2003 AD server with a router, and 4 switches. There is also a dvr system on the network for cameras. Each switch is daisy chained together. Everything is working correctly except for the fact that the network drops about 5 times a day. Before they called us, they would just unhook one switch and plug it back in and it would work. At first, we took that switch and exchanged it with another switch in a computer lab to see if just the computer lab goes down. If it did, then that switch was bad. That wasn't the case, the whole network still went down. We had already left, but when we go back, our first choice will to see if there is a loop anywhere within the switch that will flood the network. Then, we were going to see if there was a switch that was getting a lot of traffic on the network to try to track it down. How can u monitor the bandwidth on the switches? They are 24 port switches. The switch is fs750/24 switch.
I would like to test a wireless connection by streaming video from one device to another,I would like to monitor the size of a playout buffer to gauge whether or not the link can sustain a high quality HD stream. Any software that will allow me to monitor the playout buffer?
I have two computer but one monitor. and i wanna connect both computer with one monitor, one keyboard & one mouse. Like KVM switch. but if i connect with KVM switch then i can turn on one at a time & if i wanna use another one so i hv to turn off first one.

Work with VNC to a remote computer. It has an old monitor with 800x600 resolution. Laptop that worker has higher resolution. How do I set a higher resolution monitor remote computer without buying one.
I have a sony bravia tv that has wifi and supports dlna. And I have a desktop in another room, running windows xp. Since they both connected to the same network, is it possible to use the tv as another screen for the pc?( duplicate the screen, whatever i do on the pc will be shown on the tv screen) I'm installing a software that might stream content from the pc to the tv, but then i'm not hoping too much on it because the tv seems to be very picky about fCPUile formats... so i figured somehow duplicating the screen would be best if all else fails i'll just hook up the CPU to the TV.
best way to monitor delay, latency and jitter between sites connected by VPN? I have CiscoWorks LMS 4.0 but that doesn not seem to be able to do the job (or I just don't know how to to it in LMS) Even a 3rd party application will do. I would prefer not to have to place hardware at each location though.
I have a cisco 2911 router that is located in my head office LAN and I use this router to connect to my branch networks. I want to configure IP SLA Monitor on this router to track my WAN Links but it does not support the command IP SLA Monitor. My IOS VERSION is c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.151-2.T1.bin. how I can configure IP SLA on my router.
We are using LMS 4.0 in my office. We want to monitor our ISP router (cisco 888 or 892), the ISP open some MIB (IfMib and Cisco and these OID :126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52 / 184.108.40.206.2.1.31 / 220.127.116.11.2.1.4).
I use Cacti as LMS for the graph, in cacti I have the graph for the devices, but in LMS in the Topology Services, the router stay in red and in state Unreachable.Do you know what is the mechanism used by LMS to see the state of a device and which MIB or OID do I have to open on the routers?
I'm currently looking for a way to monitor a server's heartbeat, but to be able to inject that information into a router's routing table. I've googled this for a while, and come up with software called 'Quagga' or 'Xorp' which I understand is host-based routing software, but I don't quite understand if these satisfy what I need. Am I barking up the wrong tree or can I do this already with Cisco routers?
In the company I work for, employees' internet traffic is monitored, and if you download too much, you get a warning, and later there might be more serious consequences. But they don't tell how many kilobytes are too much, and they also don't tell, how much of your "kilobyte budget" you have spent already. So I want to be able to monitor my own internet activity. However, all the programs I found so far watch the whole traffic going through the network card, which, beside the internet usage, includes LAN and mail server communication, which don't count. So, I'm looking for a free portable program that can monitor specifically my browser's internet usage, i.e. the number of kilobytes sent and received by the browser application. It is imperative that the program should be portable, or at least installable without administrator privileges, because I don't have that.
