You should have a pin header on the edge of the motherboard, the pin out of which should be listed in the motherboard manual (downloadable from the maufacturer's website).

of if you have v good eyesight you may find it to be marked as pwr.

    aha, that is the whole Front panel (including activity LEDs)


    There should be a similarly shaped pin header (on the edge of the board) if you include a Pic of the mobo, I'll try to spot it for you.

I have a gs724t and need to add a gs748t, what cable do I use to link them together??

Most switches are smart enough to detect and reverse logic if the wrong cable is used. If you want to be correct you would use a crossover cable.

Computer to computer, router, or extender (crossover)
Computer to switch or hub (straight through)
Switch/Hub to Switch/Hub (crossover)

Normally, we put the printer on the network as a network printer and then install the printer to the VPN as a device.

I think it's the same for share the printer on your laptop, then it should be able to be found by the office computer as your laptop is on the VPN.

I am connecting 4 nodes through 2 switch located at 400ft distance. the data transfer is not working. 2 nodes are connected to each switch, both nodes connected to individual switch communicates with each...

Just to clarify, you have 4 computers connected to two ethernet switches. Two computers are connecteh to each ethernet switch and a network cable connecting the two ethernet switches 400ft apart.

For all the computers to communicate with each other, they all need to be in the same workgroup "name".
The cable joining the two ethernet switches need to be connected to the RJ45 UPLINK port on both the ethernet switches, and the uplink port may have a switch (the switch allows it to function as a standard RJ45 port or a RJ45 uplink port).
If there is no RJ45 uplink ports on the ethernet switches then a cross over network cable is needed to connect the ethernet switches together.

Cant understand how to get firmware to flash starview 4 box please help

You will need a null modem cable DB9F to DB9F.

Null Modem Cable

If your pc does not have a serial port you will need a USB to serial port adapter to use in conjunction with the null modem cable.

USB Adapter

These two cable links are only for reference as they can be purchased alot cheaper on fleabay.

You will need to know if you have a clone or genuine

Count the vents on top

18x7 = Clone
25x7 = Genuine
13x7 = 1st Generation

Also looking from the front
Scart to the left = Clone
Scart to the right = Genuine

Also you can go here to see some pics


You will need the GTromloader, (Starvi*w software Uploader), found in the Starvi*w software folder of the link.

You will need version CryptStar-v1.5-Core400only firmw@re for GENUINES found in "Starvi*w" firmw@re folder here.

You will need version CryptStar-v1.5-Core257 firmw@re for CLONES found in "Starvi*w" firmw@re folder here.


You will need the GTromloader , v4.03_051005, (Starvi*w Software Uploader), found in "THE B0X" software folder of the link.

You will need version thebox_h20081204_455eE_apifound in "THE B0X" firmw@re folder here.


You will need version GTRom_Super_8.02e for THE SUPR B0X found in "THE B0X SUPR" firmw@re folder. (UFL = Unified Firmware Loader) here .

St@rview 4 - TheboxSuperUSB You will need version V1.07 for TheboxSuperUSB found in "THE B0X SUPR USB" firmw@re folder here.

Instructions SV4 Supr USB

To load the files just drag them on to a memory stick and then put the memory stick in the USB port at the back of the receiver.
Then press the menu button on the remote there you will see USB at the bottom of the screen.
Just highlight USB with the remote then you will see the (Box Super USB Bin file) appear on the screen.
Highlight "theboxsuperusb_v1.01_beta" with the remote and press the ok button then you will see the file start loading in to the Box.
Once that is complete, do that again but with the "TheBoxSuperUSB_BG_LOGO_080904" file.

Once that is done,

• Turn on the box, press menu and go to installation,
• Select correct provider i.e. NTL, C/W or TW
• Then automatic scan
• Once the channels are found, exit back to the blank screen
• Press menu then 1570,
• Go down to the bottom option and turn EMU to ON.
• Now exit 3 times and go to S*y Sports and let it update.

All firmw@re/loader can be found in the link at the end of my post marked EAMO'S LIBRARY.

Updating Firmw@re SV 1/2/3

Connect your box and PC with a Null modem cable and switch on the cable box and put it on STANDBY.
(The Starvi*w does not need to be connected to TV to update it with GTROM)

Open GTROM Loader software make sure that you set the correct COM PORT that matches the one that is being used

Make sure App file only is selected, then click b1n File & browse to the firmw@re where you downloaded it to on your PC.

Run the GTROM loader by pressing Download and you will see the % progress increase then Download completed message on your PC.

Wait until you see the DOWNLOAD COMPLETE p0p up on your PC before removing the NULL MODEM CABLE.

The Starvi*w will then reboot

Disconnect from PC and connect back up to the TV :)

Have one ethernet for computer want to use xbox live so i take out the ethernet from computer and put it in xbox unplug wait plug back in turn still will not connect red x for modem

You should get a cable/dsl router/switch or wireless cable/dsl router/switch and put it between your Modem and network nodes (IE your computer and xbox 360)

So it is modem to router wan port

Xbox 360 to router lan port
Computer to router lan port

You can purchase one cheaply at best buy
look at this link

I dont how to connect my pc's using D-Link

Dear! first of all you need a 4 port hub or 8 port switch that have easily available. Now, first of all, put three wires (Straight Through Cable) in three different ports and other side its ends put in that nodes or computers. Now they are connected to each other. You want to sharing data for each you should run setup wizard for sharing inside the network places after that computer required a restart. Now the computer will start and data will share to each oher. You should use IP address for computers, first of all IP for first PC and for second PC and IP for 3rd PC. Enjoy, everything is accessible now ...........
Thank You

ARRIS Modem + D-Link router = no internet

when you are on Cable Internet with a "modem" only connected directly to the computer, what the ISP see is the computer's MAC Address (command prompt -> type ipconfig and hit enter).

put a router (which has it's own MAC Address) in-between and the ISP wont let you cause it sees the router not the computer.

check physical connection: cable modem -> router -> computer(hard wire for this troubleshooting)

access the d-link gui and locate the “Clone MAC Address" button (supposed to clone the computers MAC Address - verify if it's the same), save settings & reboot the router.
