Well mi gamer notebook HDD is fucked. I sent it to some idiots to fix it. What is happening is this, a lady tells me they need to make a special order to find a replacement for my HDD, she says it has tobe 2.5 inches with 7200 rpm.

Wtf? No such thing exists for notebooks with those specifications.

Is she just stupid and misunderstood the tech guy or are they trying to rip me off?

How did you get a gamer laptop with a 1TB hard drive? I thought the premium market went from 640GB drives to 128GB SSDs. That would certainly explain why a small repair shop wouldn't have a 1TB drive on hand.

I have 2 TB in total, the other HDD acts as a "mirror". But yea, 1tb discs have been around for quite a while. Things is when "iBUYPOWER" built my notebook it didn't really specified if my 2 HDD were 7200 RPM (which i doubt) or 5400.

Probably 5400. 7200 is pretty uncommon for 2.5" drives

Ok so I just spend the last 2 hours troubleshooting bluetooth

Turns out if you change to a new Bluetooth adapter, and you don't uninstall the old one, Windows will remember the devices that were connected to it FOREVER. There is some fuckery behind the scenes and if Micro$oft hasn't fixed it by now, they arent gonna. Maybe someone smarter then me can crate some registry key editor to fix it?

Luckily I still had my old adapter and it worked long enough for me to plug it in and uninstall it, because as far as I can tell the only other option is a fresh windows install.



So just remember, if you change Bluetooth adapters, UNINSTALL THE OLD ONE.

Does Windows remember which adapter each application is using? I don't think it does.

What exactly is this thing? There's an RJ11 on one side so it's clearly for a phone but the other side is weird. What kind of socket does that part go into?

That is for an analog phone. The three pronged end is for certain analog phone jacks. I clearly remember having one like that when I lived in the norwegian countryside in the 80's; not sure how common they are in your country.

A while ago I paid a few bucks for a year of VPN service and now that I'm trying to activate it I see that it's some proprietary app bullshit that doesn't support OpenVPN. If that doesn't bother you, it's yours:

Wait, RAM booster as in shitty program a site wants you to download, or as in a feature some motherboard makers advertise?

If it's a program it's junk. It just allocates large amounts of memory and then frees it, forcing everything else out to swap. Then only the stuff that's needed gets loaded back in. This used to help in some cases in Win98 when memory management was shit. But today Windows memory management is good and all it will do is chug your disk a while.

If you mean the motherboard feature, it may help some. It's a BIOS function that overclocks the RAM automatically when you run it. It tweaks the clock speed and timings to try to find the fastest stable values for your RAM. The boost is often pretty modest but ymmv.

I actually installed the Windows driver toolkit to check the memory pool out.

>>121463
Nope.
And even if it were, that still wouldn't go to the non-paged pool. It would be in the paged pool, not getting paged for lack of space.

Anyway all the FMic and Irp tags tell me is that this leak is coming from some sort of network driver allocating buffers and never releasing them.

So that part where I said I wasn't getting SMBloris'd? Well proliferating orphan network buffers is how that exploit could run servers with 128gb entirely out of memory.

It could be any of the half dozen physical or virtual network drivers on my system.

It should help the reception a lot.

Since everyone is talking like a fag and their shit's all retarded, i'm just going to give you the straight dope, OP. Check out cryptostorm, it's a VPN(or encrypted packet routing service, as they like to call themselves) that makes use of "access tokens" that are sold in a decentralized manner, and also decouples your payment information from your authentication with SHA512 hashing. They don't require anything but a payment, no billing information, no registration, no databases of customers, no logging, no bullshit either. Been using them since their inception and i've had nothing but incredible speeds and some pretty great security on their end.

Check out UBCD, there is like 6 programs for backups. There is native windows backups as well. these are not really trusted. As for UBCD, simply have a 40 gig, or a way to save a backup. Like a external drive.

tl;dr: Every device using WPA2 is attackable and has to be updated. Good luck with that. Ethernet Jesus related.

https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/10/severe-flaw-in-wpa2-protocol-leaves-wi-fi-traffic-open-to-eavesdropping/

>Researchers have disclosed a serious weakness in the WPA2 protocol that allows attackers within range of vulnerable device or access point to intercept passwords, e-mails, and other data presumed to be encrypted, and in some cases, to inject ransomware or other malicious content into a website a client is visiting.

>The proof-of-concept exploit is called KRACK, short for Key Reinstallation Attacks. The research has been a closely guarded secret for weeks ahead of a coordinated disclosure that was scheduled for 8am Monday, East Coast time. A website disclosing the vulnerability said it affects the core WPA2 protocol itself and is effective against devices running Android, Linux, and OpenBSD, and to a lesser extent macOS and Windows, as well as MediaTek Linksys, and other types of devices. The site warned that attackers can exploit the flaw to decrypt a wealth of sensitive data that's normally encrypted by the nearly ubiquitous Wi-Fi encryption protocol.

>"This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on," researcher Mathy Vanhoef, of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium wrote. "The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites."

I just bought a new laptop with windows 10. The OS is using like 20 gigs plus and yet still to do basic things I need to download programs off the internet. For example, I'd like to just reassign or disable my num lock key. It is right next to the delete button and I keep hitting it and I will literally never want my number pad to not be functional which happens often because I keep hitting the num lock key.

Now to do this I'm finding that I have to download some program. Now all the sites I go to seem sketchy as fuck and I get hits from malware blockers that redirect me away from some of them. I've seen sites that are named suspiciously similar to the official site for some project boosted higher in google results, review sites that push suspicious looking downloads and all sorts of high jinks.

I should be able to go to some site where windows has approved software that is virus free, but the windows store has nothing that will do even this basic task.

How do I ensure that what I download is from a legitimate malware-free source?

Hello /tech/ I am curious which ISP you all prefer and can help me make the right choice choosing one. I do a lot of online gaming and surfing the web. I only desire internet not TV+internet. I've heard mixed views between U-verse and Xfinity and am unsure where exactly to go and if there are better options for the price. Thanks in advance, /tech/!

Boosting Cell Phone Signal

So, I get my internet as part of my unlimited data cell phone plan, using my phone as a wifi hotspot and picking it up with my pc. But where I live I get shit cell reception. Mountains and all that.

Before anyone suggests I change how I get the internet, I live out in bumfuck egypt and there is no cable, no dsl, no wifi. This is my only choice other than satellite plans with unacceptable data caps. So it's this or go back to dial up.

Anyway, I figured that maybe if i could get more than two bars in the room where my computer is, my download speeds would improve.

I have heard of various signal booster products, like on amazon, with a greatly varying price range, so I thought I would ask people on a tech board about it.

Have any of you ever had to solve this problem for yourselves, and how did you do it? Did you buy a signal booster, and how well did it work? Was it worth the money, and easy to install and use?

At the moment, I'm pretty new to wireless, wi-fi, cell phones, and high speed internet in general, unfortunately, and I gotta start somewhere.

While I do know some of that basic stuff, I really do appreciate seeing someone explain beginner stuff without derision. Too many people act like pricks nowadays just because someone else doesn't yet know what they know, especially online, so it's nice to see you and the other posters in this thread not doing that shit. I've been having a shitty day, and that fact lessens it a bit.

And yeah, even when I'm getting the worst download speed I typically get, it's still way better than when I was using dial up. The dial up here was terrible, like, "you're pleased to get 8kb/s on a download" terrible.


>>121376
Videos, Steam stuff, mods, you name it. I'd like to live as what has become a normal person, with the ability to buy games digitally, keep my games and other software updated, get instructions for and answer questions about things online while the situation is still relevant. Maybe even play online multiplayer on occasion.

Sometimes I do watch or download youtube stuff at low res, but sometimes a lot is lost in the lowering of the detail.




Anyway, my main thing is that Verizon has me for around $80 a month, and after my 15gb limit on 4g speeds for mobile hotspot data, i'm supposed to be getting downgraded to ~600kb/s download speed, which would be ok, if I actually got that. The best I get is around 100-120kb/s. Since it's my only real choice, I'm just looking to more get my money's worth out of it.

I'm posting here again mainly to thank the people who posted after I already popped in and said thanks, and to give an update on the situation.

I did some checking into a network extender that samsung offered, that i could get through verizon, but discovered that you had to have a seperate broadband connection for it to be hooked up to to boost the cell signal. so that's out. I got told to check out a place called "weboost", which I'm doing (very expensive), and it looks like it might work.



>>121378
I'll look into those, too.



Thanks again to everyone trying to help, and especially for helping without being a dick.

Depends on your router. Clients is likely how many devices are connected to your computer. Your connection, a smartphone, her connection.

Try this is your router like way out dated. you can check the 'build version'. If it's out dated you can flash an updated version which is basically easy. Often just pressing a button to update on some routers.

The 'port scan' may just be some random nothing. https://www.grc.com/shieldsup to see if any ports are open on your computer. It's as basic a start as you can get to start. If all is green then it should be cool.

numbers like 209.143.252.20 are IP addresses. This would translate to quaker.com

What router do you have? poke around. Get a newer router. Most routers can translate like above so you can see what addresses are being accessed.
