    W-ISP for Baltimore area

    Your suggestion was very helpful. I looked for Ubiquiti providers for that area and contacted a company called Port Networks which I discovered already services a number of other businesses in that area. The guy said he doesn't use Ubiquiti for corporate locations. But it's something else...

    W-ISP for Baltimore area

    One of our offices in Baltimore has a problem with stable internet. This location is in an industrial area and the only option which they currently have is Verizon dsl. But the copper lines in the area suck and even the T1 lines they have there are not stable. Plus they are at the end of the...

    Deleted account but kept files, folder disappeared, Windows 7

    This program is awesome. It will show you what it can recover for free but you'll have to buy it to get your files back. I think it's $30 for single user. I've used it to completely recover deleted profiles and associated files...

    U-Verse ATT vs DSL Copper ATT..Question

    The deal with Uverse is it's a fiber line which runs to a box somewhere in your neighborhood. From there to your residence is still a copper line. The good news is once you're on Uverse you should be able to upgrade speeds to 12, 18 or more Mb. As mentioned you're not going to see any difference...

    WTF who doesn't like seeing more effects in games? Nothing wrong with adding more eye candy as far as I'm concerned. I enjoy seeing PhysX enabled content in games.

    Newest Steam update

    Been playing Skyrim for quite a while and was always annoyed with the long load time. I even looked into the issue and could not find a working answer. New Steam update today and Skyrim loaded damn near instantly. :cool:

    what could be worse than heartbleed?

    For you Cisco users, here's a long list of affected products. Sonicwalls are not affected by this and actually have an IPS signature to detect and block it.

    VOIP over VPN question

    I have 2 locations in which a VOIP system is shared through a vpn tunnel. I advised them originally that it would not be my recommendation but they ignored that and asked me to set it up anyway. It actually seems to work fine and I'd say the 2 things needed to make it work is decent bandwidth at...

    Almost 70% Of IT Professionals Suffer Weekly Phishing Attacks

    Count me in as the other 30% but I have a many layered approach to prevent it. A very good AV program on all systems. A SPI firewall with content filtering, gateway av, IPS, Antispyware and application control. I also block in and out access to a hand full of countries including Russia and...

    Microsoft Reissues Flawed Windows Security Update With New Flaws

    Disregard that. Looks like my WSUS system did not pull the original patch. Microsoft must have pulled the patch before my system did a sync. Installed on my 32 bit win 7 pc, no issues. I guess we'll see how the rest goes

    Microsoft Reissues Flawed Windows Security Update With New Flaws

    Just installed on top of the previous update which I also had no problems with. Did not uninstall previous patch as recommended. System seem fine. Win 7 32 bit. I guess I'll see what happens with all the other pc's. None had a problem with the previous patch.

    Routing issue

    Which might explain your delays depending on the configuration of them. Or the HP device is still pointing to hardware that's been removed from the network.

    Who, besides Cisco, for enterprise access switches?

    I really don't see a problem using a web interface since an administrator login should be required to modify anything in a switch, provided that was setup in the device in the first place.
