Need advice on installing a Polycom 'Polyscan' video teleconferencing system

Hi We are a 25 person company working in the education software market; we have a 'Polyscan' system from Polycom, that used to work previously, hooked to a PC-based router that was internally maintained by an in-house network engineer. Unfortunately the engineer has left the company and the router has burnt. We have restored our internet access using a standard Netgear router, but we are left with the problem of hooking up again the videoconferencing system. What do you recommend? Buying a higher-end router that would provide support for video conferencing and that wouldn't betoo difficult to configure? Setting up again a PC-based router?

Re: Need advice on installing a Polycom 'Polyscan' video...


Some ideas based on your post/description:

It is very possible that the management/support software necessary to run your videoconferencing system resides or is installed in the PC based router that got burned. When you replaced the router with a NetGear, you simply provided an interconnection/distribution/forwarding/sharing of your Internet access to the different PCs of your firm but nothing to replace the server/management software for the Polyscan System. You have replaced only half of the PC based router - the router only, hence you have Internet acces but no video conferencing which is software managed which was installed in the PC half. Additionally, Polycom uses online Product Activation which might be necessary for your system to start working again.

Depending on the model of the Polyscan System that you have, it is also possible that you simply have to reconfigure the network settings of your Polyscan' System to match the new IP address of the Netgear (which might be very different from what the burned PC based router was using before). I understand that Polycom have several models (or series as they term it - PVX, TPX, RPX, VSX, HDX, and others). Would you pls post back with the series/model number that you are using?

Have you tried discussing your concern with Polycom Support? They might be in a better position to address this.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back with the Polycom system model that you are using.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hack a facebook account

Report Hackers to Facebook

According to the third article of the Safety section in Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, willfully compromising a user's account on the social networking constitutes a violation of Facebook's user agreement.

Reporting such violations may be performed in a number of ways, depending on the situation. If either you or your friend's Facebook account has been hacked, file a report through Facebook's Help Center.

If you are aware of a specific user on Facebook who is engaged in hacking other accounts, file a report regarding his activity through his profile page.

Go to, type the email and password associated with your account in the corresponding text fields and press "Enter."

Click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click "Security" in the "Popular Topics" section.

Click "I Think My Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.

Click either of the two security questions, depending on your situation, and click "Secure it here."

Click "Secure Account" and click "Continue."

Complete each of the steps for securing your account, including changing your password, changing your email password, reviewing your changes and unlocking your account.

Click "Done" to complete the process.

The developers at Facebook receive a notification regarding your account being compromised.
Report Your Friend's Compromised Profile

Sign into Facebook, click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click the "Security" icon in the "Popular Topics" section.

Click "I Think My Friend's Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.

Click any of the three questions depending on your circumstances and click "File a Report."

Click your friend's full name, his birthday, the email associated with his account and a description of the situation in the corresponding text fields.

Click "Submit" to send the report to the developers at Facebook.

Report a Profile on Facebook

Log into Facebook, click the "Search" text field and type the name of the profile you want to report for hacking.

Scroll down and click "Report/Block This Person" in the left side bar.

Click "Unfriend" or "Block" depending on the situation and click "This Person is Bullying or Harassing Me," click the drop-down menu and select "Other."

Facebook does not offer an option in this drop-down menu that applies specifically to hacking, but selecting this option is the best fit for that form of violation.

Click the user's name at the top of the page, type a report regarding the account hacking in the text field and press "Enter."

The report is sent to the Facebook developers.

Teach yourself how a computer system works.
There are no schools to learn to hack.

There is a site called Hack this Site where you can go to train and test your hacking skills.
Practice your skills on a project.

Rewrite the program with subtle changes.
You should be able to gain access to a file, program or data base that is protected while remaining oblivious to others working on this project.

Submit your resumes to companies that need hackers.
Some choices are large companies, banks and government agencies but this list is not all inclusive.

Hack into the computer system of the company you work for after it hires you.
Attempt to access records that are password protected.

How do i know my microsoft office product key


The product key is usually typed on the Microsoft Office disc provided to you. It is a 25 digit code in this format XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX. Don't be mistaken by typing the Microsoft product key found on the computer because that product key is for the operating system and not for the Microsoft Office.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 (2005), recently replaced hard drive (newer, bigger, faster) and paid to have computer software re-installed by a competent/knowledgable person. Worked fine..then, I get blank...

The Diagnostic Utility was deleted either by the person who repaired your computer most likely. This partition is used for recovery purposes and is installed by the factory. If you have the proper recovery disc that came from the factory you will need to do a complete re-install to factory default. If you do not have the original disc you will need to get one from Dell to bring your machine back to factory load. This disc has everything that was installed including the partition as well as the drivers and other software that came with your computer when you purchased it.

Now assuming that the technician had restored the computer back to factory specs you should not be missing the Diagnostic Partition you may want to return this to the person you paid to this fix and get them to restore it back to factory specs. Now if you did not have the recovery CD at the time when he began the work he was forced to do a format on the drive and use a purchased disc from Microsoft which he had to also search and install drivers himself. This is a problem because it would then not be his fault. He did what he had to do bypassing the factory stuff when you purchased this laptop now it is at the hands of independent software and not the original with no other partitions others than C: Which in many cases especially laptops can cause issues with devices not being installed properly outside of the scope of the original recovery CD.

With all that said make sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD-ROM drive as the first boot. You will have to go to the BIOS to check this out. I advise you to use the original software that came with your computer. Insert disc into the drive and re-boot and follow the onscreen instructions that is all you can do, if this does not work you will have to bring your computer to a repair shop and go from there. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I need to install a new laptop to my Netgear System


You'll need to configure the wireless settings of the laptop to work with the wireless router. These are the common settings that you'll need for it:

1. SSID (wireless signal from the router)
2. wireless security (WEP or WPA)

BTW, does the laptop detect the wireless signal being transmitted by the router?

You don't actually need the software for this. All you need to do is login to the router via the web interface (usually or for Belkin). You can configure the channel etc options from there.
