To do this, you need to acess your router by going to 192.168.1.1.
It will ask you for a password and username, and if it is set to the default password and you do not know it, you can get it at routerpasswords.com
After, look for a Port Fowarding or Port Ranging menu.
Input 5001 for Start and End and set it to both TCP and UDP.
after save and exit, and you are done.

How To Speeding Up Network Browsing


There are a lot of things which can negatively impact how fast XP will browse network shares.
One has been previously covered regarding browsing to Win9x computers.
Other things you can try, especially when there is slow browsing to network shares with a lot of files:
1. Remove current shortcuts in My Network Places
2. Change the registry so shared folders on remote computers are not automatically added to My Network Places when you even open a document from that shared folder
  1. Start Regedit
  2. Create a DWORD value:
  3. HKEY_Current_User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer \ NoRecentDocsNetHood to 1.
  4. I have also seen setting the following help as well.
    HKEY_Current_User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer \ UseDesktopIniCache to 1.

3. Increase the amount of data is buffered at one time to send to a client. On the computer with the shared directory:
  1. Start Regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
  3. Create a DWORD Key called SizReqBuf
  4. Give it a value of Hex FFFF

My Ethernet cable test normal but I receive an error message that says unable to connect, what does it mean?


Hi Matt,

The issue seems to be with the ethernet controller, or the DNS / DHCP service of the computer. Try safe mode with networking and see if that works.
you may check the antivirus settings and try a different user profile.
if this does not help, then call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Make sure you are set up for correct monitor. If keyboard lights flash and HD beeps, but no picture, you may have an incorrect monitor setup. In BIOS, make sure you are set for proper internal/external video, and be sure to plug into right port.

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c- Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Not Showing the Other Person
Online Status
When one of your Skype contacts is not online, they will not show up in your list of available contacts.
It is possible to hold a conversation with someone who is not on your friend list, however; if you are trying to talk to someone you have previously chatted with but does not show up on your list of contacts, check to make sure that you have added the person.
All of your added contacts will show up on your list; the ones who are offline will have a grayed-out Skype icon and the contacts who are online will have a green icon next to their name.
If you cannot see the person's name, you may need to search for them and create a new contact.
Availability
Skype users have the option to change their availability when they are signed into the program. The status availability options are: offline, online, SkypeMe!, invisible, away, not available and do not disturb.
If the person you want to talk to is signed in but has selected the "offline" or "invisible" availability, you will not see them as online.
For the name to show up on your list of online contacts, the person must change their availability.

Blocked
If you cannot see a person that you have already added to your list, there is a chance that the person has blocked you.
When a Skype user chooses to block you, you will not be able to see anything about availability.
Even if the user is online and accepting messages, you will not be able to see the status and messages will remain undelivered.
Video
If you are trying to hold a video chat with a Skype contact but cannot see the person, there are several possible reasons.
If either of your Internet connections are too slow to support streaming video, the video will not come through.
If you have been chatting by text and switch to video, the other person will need to enable the video stream before you can see them.
Other culprits can include out-of-date webcam drivers, unplugged webcams or another video-enabled application running at the same time.
Share Both Screens in Skype
Sign in to Skype and right-click on the contact you want to share screens with.
Click "Call" to place a call to the user. When he answers, the Skype call toolbar will appear beneath his avatar.
Click the double square icon on the toolbar.
This is the share button.
Click "Show Entire Screen." Your screen is now visible.
Ask the other person to click on the double square icon and then "Show Entire Screen."

Won't allow cookies


First-Get your antivirus turned back on. NEVER disable it.
Go to tools, options and set your cookie handling to what you want. Some sites want all sorts of extra things opened up. Don't do it. They install spyware on your computer. Make a phone call instead. A $1 phone call is worth a lot more than the time it will take to clean up your computer.

T6532 monitor screen faded


There are a lot of things that can cause this kind of problem. You might try swapping out the cable connecting the monitor if you have an extra, or if you're lucky and own another computer, you can try to use another monitor, or connect another tower to the monitor in question to see if another computer works better with it.

If you've determined that it's not the monitor or the cable, it's most likely going to be an issue with your graphics adapter. If you are not comfortable messing around with the interior of your machine, a shop could help you do further testing to see what needs to be done. Most likely, a new motherboard will be the solution, since your particular computer's graphics chipset resides on the motherboard itself.

As a final hint, I've seen a lot of Emachines with motherboard issues at my primary place of work. You might try contacting Emachines if the machine is less than a year old, since it would fall under manufacturer's warranty and you can get the board replaced for free.
