    Over the past few days when I run Windows update, I am offered _two_ Definition updates (with different Definition numbers). For example, this morning, I was offered 1.197.2102.0 and 1.197.2109.0)....

    Thanks. Clicking on the "ethernet" text shows the speed as 1.0Gbps, which is what I was curious about. For the other posters, I was not asking about throughput - I just wanted to know if the...

    Determining Ethernet connection speed

    Does anyone know how to determine the actual speed of the ethernet connection to my PC (Win8.1/64)? The PC network adapter (and the Cisco router) supports up to Gigabit speeds, but I believe the...

    Paul:

    You are correct - for some reason (about every 30 days) the Cisco Modem/Wi-Fi router stops issuing IP addresses and everything fails. I generally notice this first on my iMac, which is...

    The Cisco is a Docis 3 modem with Wi-Fi. One box - it can't be separated. The other issue is that I have to reboot it about once a month because it looses all internet connections. That happened...

    Thanks for the comments. I am going to try Amazon and see how long it takes to upload a relatively small set of photos. Amazon is nice because it is free and unlimited for Prime members (I am) and...
  12. Are Cloud Backup Services Really Practical Now?

    You can still use the CD - and even if you have a version like I have - you just run the internet fix and it should work. Just keep your license key handy. It may have something to do with the fact...

    Windows Visual Design

    I don't know if anyone has commented on this issue, but it has become increasingly noticeable to me - and irritating. Current Windows visual design uses _lots_ of blank space. Compared to what used...

    Thanks for the power strip recommendation - I will give that a try.
