Re: computer name

In my system (see my signature) I go to Start Menu > Administration > Users and Groups > Users tab , select user and on the right can change account type, account name, password. By the way, what you are looking to change is the user account name, not the computer name. The form is <user>@<computer>.

Re: Catweazel - over and out

I would not call that incident a mistake. At the most it may be incomplete but such is the great majority of advice you get here and anywhere else. Others can come along and add more. Even if you make the occasional mistake it is not a big deal because it will be corrected by others and everyone wil...

Re: wi-fi won't connect

You can try to disable WIFI encryption and see if the client can connect. If it can connect then the problem is with the encryption. If it cannot connect then the problem is with the connection itself. Knowing that should help you with troubleshooting.

Re: Wireless Security problem

Something is wrong. You should be able to change the password on the spot. The updating message should not last more than some seconds. Try again and if you still have problems you can call your Internet supplier if they are responsible for the router. Some companies give you a router that reports h...

Re: Wireless Security problem

MAC ranges are assigned to vendors / manufacturers. If your TV is connected to your WIFI I am guessing it is because you or someone else gave it the WIFI name and password. (Although I have seen some mysterious situations where a device seems to connect to the WIFI without the WIFI name or password....

Vendor for "7C-4F-B5-XX-XX-XX" is ARCADYAN TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION. They make set top boxes, routers, etc. Do you have TV over IP? Some other device?

Re: Wireless Security problem

I often freak out thinking someone is connected to my network until I realize it is one of my devices. Make sure it is not one of your devices. Think hard. disconnect everything and start over. In any case it is good practice to change the WIFI password to something non trivial, and use WPA2 encrypt...

Re: Wireless Security problem

Well, you are not reaching the router. I would try connecting to the router using Ethernet (from any computer) and then, once Ethernet is working, configuring WIFI. Many things can be the cause. Are you certain the present address is 192.168.1.1? If after trying a few things you cannot connect it mi...

Re: How to read encrypted external hd on another computer ?

The way I see it the password to the encrypted disk is one thing but the permissions to access it is another different thing. The disk and its files would need to be accessible to all users or you would need to access it with the credentials of the user who has permission. Hopefully someone who know...

Code: Select all

ping 192.168.1.1
and you should see if you get a response or not.

Re: file/dir dates from BEFORE I installed?

I noticed something similar in Windows. I would download a file to my disk and Windows would report something like "Date created: Jul 12, 2018", "Date modified: April 8, 2012". At first I was confused that a file could be modified before it was created but then I understood the creation date is when...

It's a survey, not a vote.
And a useless survey at that. Any survey where participants self-select is utterly useless as a representation of the position held by society at large.
