Other / Split CAT-5 into two LAN connections.
« Last post by Geek-9pm on Today at 05:27:42 PM »
This old tick lets you have two Ethernet connection on one cable. This is for a normal 100 MHz LAN. Of the 8 wires, only four are needed to make a connection. So yu can use the other four to run another LAN connection over one cable. This is hardy when you do not have a HUB to tie two PCs onto a LAN. Or, you can have two independent LAN connections.
You can find videos on Your Tube  shoring how to use the spare wires.
Here is one:

How does this work?  Read this:

It  is remarkable that so many people said it can not be done.  :rofl:

Drivers / Wi-Fi Network Card Power Management
« Last post by rjbinney on Today at 05:02:10 PM »
Dear Internet:

I have a new PC, and it seems to drop its Wi-Fi connection when left unattended. My Power Settings are "Always On" when plugged in.

I found several sources online that suggested to turn off "Allow the computer to turn off this device" in "Power Management" on my network adapter's "Power Management" tab in Properties.

Trouble is, I CANT FIND THAT TAB (see picture).

Need some help!

Thanks,

Send it back to the vendor.
It should have come with some documentation.

Do you need a Wi-Fi repeater?

Computer software / Re: Save a Word doc to a PDF doc

I have the same error on my Mac. The fix is to install an old version of Word and do it again. You can also use online service to convert word to pdf, which is not hard to find.

Hardware / Re: 2 laptops going to 1 monitor, then to another
« Last post by Lisa_maree on October 17, 2019, 05:31:08 PM »
It would be easier to do it this way. With a Video splitter, this is an HDMI one

So the laptop plugs into the i/p and there is two outputs for the monitor and TV.

Hardware / 2 laptops going to 1 monitor, then to another
« Last post by Luje5513 on October 17, 2019, 01:48:58 PM »
Bare with me here, I'm going to try to explain what I'm trying to do. I'm obviously not so great with this stuff.
I host a karaoke night and I use two laptops, I have both laptops going to one regular monitor so the singer can read the lyrics, that is working out great. What I want to do is add a 32 inch tv facing the crowd so they can also see the lyrics. Can I run both laptops to the monitor just like I'm doing now, then run a cable from the monitor to the TV so the TV will display whatever is on the monitor?

I think the cheapest way will be to return the router or exchange it with another router online or from your vendor.
