  • Do individual computers have any "signature" by which they can be identified over the internet? Not the IP address, but the physical device?

    For example...if a political dissident somewhere was using public wifi, could the government potentially identify the actual computer that was being used to connect to the internet, and find out who bought it through purchase records etc?

  • Why is my PC so slow??

    My PC, which connects wirelessly, is in the same room as my Xbox. My xbox can connect just fine and run games just fine. However, my PC is so freaking slow.

    My PC, which connects wirelessly, is in the same room as my Xbox. My xbox can connect just fine and run games just fine. However, my PC is so freaking slow. I have put up a WiFi repeater about halfway between the router and my PC, and the PC can connect to the repeater but has no internet access. It says “connected” but can’t connect to anything. So I switched the WiFi to the main router and the connection is INCREDIBLY slow. It’s ridiculous. I don’t know why my PC has so much trouble yet my xbox works just fine. And I can’t move my router because it is via dsl. What should I do to fix this issue?!

  • A question about internet speed!?

    My sister's wifi is always slow even though she has the same service speed as I do. Spectrum keeps telling her it's not their fault, no shock, I argue she needs a new modem.

    My sister's wifi is always slow even though she has the same service speed as I do. Spectrum keeps telling her it's not their fault, no shock, I argue she needs a new modem. My main point is that at 100mbs two or three people should be able to do normal web browsing without a significant slow down. Ive been on my desktop while the other half is on hers many times with no noticeable affect. She was told that if two people are using the wifi at once that means they are getting 50mbs and so on which I say is bull. What do you think?

  • Why don't they make USB the way they make ethernet? Why can't we make our own USB cables?

    Ethernet cables were designed to be easy to assemble because people need different sizes for every use, and selling a million different sizes at stores just isn't efficient. Anyone and their grandma can make an Ethernet cable. Why don't we demand the same of USB? It would be even easier, since USB uses four... show more
    Ethernet cables were designed to be easy to assemble because people need different sizes for every use, and selling a million different sizes at stores just isn't efficient. Anyone and their grandma can make an Ethernet cable. Why don't we demand the same of USB? It would be even easier, since USB uses four data pins instead of eight. A clamp system like the one Ethernet uses should work just fine, but instead companies force us to buy USB cables premade. And prices seem to be skyrocketing to ridiculous levels, specifically because companies can charge us what they want. Is there an actual reason why a home made USB system wouldn't be possible? Or is it just so companies can sell to us? Did they realize their mistake when they made Ethernet? That convenience doesn't make money?

  • How do I block someone on my wi-fi network?

    Best answer: Either change the WiFi password, or enable MAC filtering on the router. Check your router manual on how to do either as they tend to be router specific
