Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

To increase data transfer rate b/w PCs

If the data transfer rate between two PCs over a LAN is slow, stop any firewall service if running in both PCs. This will increase the data transfer rate between the PCs.
This can increase the throughput if your are backing a set of servers using a master backup server. Or any scenario where is there is flow of data between two windows systems.
PS: This is not applicable to all the antivirus firewalls. Also i don't recommend to keep the firewall disabled, if no other alternatives are planned well.

I bought a new laptop from Dell. My old on is a desktop from Dell. I have a Belkin transfer cable. It is asking for a transfer key number. what is that????????


Please note that your cable will support below givne O/S check at your end.

One destination PC running Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

One source PC running Windows® XP (32- or 64-bit) or Windows Vista® (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

For Example two Pcs 1 is Xp and other pcs is Windows 7, then try to connect between both .

Another one more option is there for transfering the data between two systems either laptop or Desktop by a cross cable (LAN CABLE), buy a cross cable from shop and insert into RJ45 Socket (i.e lan socket) the try to transfer the datas.

why does my computer take forever to open a video


Large emails or Emails with large attachments (even Photos) that are automatically opened as well as Internet services that send large amount of data (eg. Youtube, Netflix) are restricted by the performance of your Network connection and the Data transfer rates allowed by the information provider and any local controlling softwares (such as Netlimiter & Firewalls)..
Hope it helps explained your 'slow' performance.

Do you have this Bios version? P5LD2-VM BIOS version 1303
Support new CPU's. Please refer to Asus website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx
Your board came out around June-2005 so improvements are here. I'm not saying its all about the CPU & FSB but it may help.
