  1. Hello All, Anyone interested or have invites to share for this phone? http://oneplus.net/ Just not satisfied with the all of the carriers having their bootloaders locked. This phone already has CyanogenMod installed. Also, CDMA is out. I'm on Verizon now and haven't renewed contract yet. I might not seeing that the S5 and the Note 3 are all way too complicated to bootloader/root/recovery. Ideas and suggestions welcomed. Thanks for your time and attention,
  2. Hello All, I was attempting to set a user account to standard from Admin. I re-enabled the built-in admin account and setup a password. I didn't want to lock myself out. I restarted and logged in as the standard user. I tried to do something that required elevated permissions. Got a box that told me that I wasn't in the admin group. I was expecting to see a box that asked for the admin password instead. I confirmed that the "User Profile service" was running and on auto. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your time & attention,

  4. I have a Asus N66u flashed with DD-WRT. But, I have a hardware firewall before the router anyways.
  5. Hello All, Everyone knows of the backdoors and the recent port 32764. I'd like to know how to scan and confirm my router is vulnerable. Maybe Nmap. Now, I've always flashed my routers with DD-WRT. Thanks,
  6. Hello All, I read the below article and thought... Why not implement a search filter on my network. http://news.yahoo.com/-police-and-fbi-deny-alleged-search-of-new-york-home-stemming-from-journalist%E2%80%99s-web-searches--200309173.html Is there a way to put something in place that would block keywords from leaving my network. I know OpenDNS blocks a lot of stuff but not this. Maybe there is something I can put in DD-WRT to accomplish the job. I have kids and sometimes kids don't always use their heads. Thanks for your time & attention,

    I was checking out APO. They look promising. I already have a N66U and can just set it up for APO. Thanks again!

    Hello All, At current I have ProXPN for my VPN solution. I'm just not happy with it's failed attempt at DD-WRT integration. Does anyone here have suggestions for a service that will provide VPN, mask DNS queries and play nice with DD-WRT. Thanks for your time and attention,
  9. Hello All, I'm thinking of getting a Galaxy Nexus phone from Sprint when it becomes available. This phone has an NFC chip in it. What I'd like to do is put a NFC chip on my desktop. Once my phone comes into range of my desktop it will unlock it. Is this possible? Haven't found anything about this on Google. Open your door locks with NFC http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/09/yale-lock-opens-doors-with-nfc-phones/

    Hello All, I have 3 websites all with their own domain. Right now I have them on Google Sites and I really don't like the way Google Sites operate. What I need is the following: 1. In Google Reader they changed the way RSS Feeds work with TAGS. I need an alternative. 2. With the generated TAGS I'd pipe that output to RSS feeds (FeedBurner). 3. I need to display those RSS Feeds on a website. 4. Is there a way that the RSS feeds can be archived and searched for "keywords" 5. What webhost and/or software will allow this (e.g., XOOPS) I hate the way Google Sites allows you to do this. It totally looks cheesy all of those gadgets. What do you guys recommend. Thanks for time & attention,
  11. Thanks guys for all of your help. This setup has worked for years. Then all of sudden no more. Yeah, never expect anything to last forever. What I had to do was reset the printer to factory defaults and update the drivers. The drivers went a few years without updating that is why I never bothered to check or to upgrade them since everything worked. And, Yes, The Dell printers work the same way, you can't have both wired and wireless connections. This printer is weird it requires a wireless dongle which I have but don't use. It doesn't play nice with WPA2. Thanks again,
  12. Hello All, I'm by no means a Printer Expert. I'd appreciate some help here. I don't know even where to start. For the past few weeks I've been having printer issues. I have a Dell 2130cn printer and it's connected to my network via ethernet to my router. All clients connect to the printer wirelessly. The printer has a dedicated IP. There aren't any other wireless issues currently. Everyone in my household gets printer offline when inspecting the documents that are present in queue. However, I'm able to ping it and visit it's admin page. To temporary correct the problem I'd have to restart the print spooler on the machine at that time when you want to print. Today for some reason this fix isn't working. I've had the printer send to printer directly not spool the job. Does anyone know how to correct this issue? I've Googled not much luck. Thanks for your time and attention,
  13. I'll be only using Android for the mobile side of things.
  14. Hello All, I know that there are many QR Code readers and generators. What I need is a way to generate QR Codes for all of my members. When member show up for meetings I'd like them to present this QR Code as proof of them attending, (Roll Call) Next, I'd like to be able to use the same code in a database. Lastly, is there a way to do all of this via mobile app except the DB part of it. I need to be able to print off a list of members after the meeting. Thanks for your time & attention,
  15. Hello All, OnStar is doing some tracking of your vehicle. Even if you don't have a plan you can call them to opt out. I just got off the phone and they claim that the data connection is deactivated. Is there a way to check that it's off and see what it's transmitting if it's still on? Talked to the guys at the dealership and told me that the only thing they could do is remove the module. The dealership claims that they weren't aware of the new privacy statement release and information gathering.
  16. Hello All, I'm trying to build or get to run ESXi on the following hardware: ASUS M4n72-e AMD 64 2 Dual Core 4GB DDR2 1200 SATA, 2 x 500GB ST9500420AS I don't think I have the right hardware from what the hardware compatibility. What RAID controller can I use? All of the ones that are listed are expensive from what I can find. Thanks for your time & attention,
  17. Hello All, Yeah I can do a lot of things but printers have never been my speciality. Here is the situation. I have a wireless network and the printer is connected to the router hardwired. My wife prints off a lot of PPT stuff for school. Many times her jobs won't go through or get 1/2 printed. If she sends it again it will pick up from the old job and print them both off. I believe it's some kind of transmission issue with the wireless network. She has a laptop and connects wirelessly. I only print off a page or 2 once in every few weeks. This issue is wasting paper and ink. Like this morning I was monitoring the printer, she sent off a job. I saw it hit the queue and it was printing. When it said the job was completed checked the page impressions and page output it was 24 pages not 81 like it was suppose too. All looked normal on her end. She sent the job to the printer completely from her end, (No buffering). Dell : 2130cn : 256M What do you guys suggest? Should I add more memory to the printer or is the wireless is to blame? Thanks for your time & attention,
  18. Hello All, Lately I gotten into doing a lot of emailing and creating PDF reports. There are a bunch of PDF creators out there but which is the best to use? Also need to attach a digital signature both to the PDF & gmail. Is GPG the only way to go for adding signatures for gmail? I'd like to use a VeriSign digital signature for both purposes. I know that this doesn't prevent tempering but at least it will alert the receiver that the content has been altered after I sent it. Thanks for your time & attention,
  19. I've been watching since season 5 or 6 I believe, it's been a while. You guys are awesome. Keep up the good work. I look forward to your shows every week. Something interesting and constructive to watch. Just wish the shows were a lil longer but understand the amount of time sacrificed. I remember the days of the "The Broken" the music was off the chain...:) Hak5 wasn't a spin off of that, right?
  20. Hello All, I have a job to do. It's a local restaurant in town. I want to do a network assessment, take a snapshot of their entire network BEFORE I do anything to is. This assessment I want to be able to find a way to optimize their network. Maybe virtualize some servers that they really don't need a hardware footprint. They are having a difficult time with wireless in their building. Yesterday I went in and saw their equipment for the 1st time. Noticed that they are running Comcast and AT&T DSL for their backup. They have 2 Linksys *CONSUMER* routers Daisey chained some kinda way. All of that goes into a switch and then to a patch panel in the wall. It's a mess! I want to be able to document everything to have as a reference and show the owner. Also, my approach would be change the wireless setup and look for offending devices (interference) But, my gut tells me that they are using the wrong APs. I was looking at something more powerful. Like this: http://www.dell.com/us/en/enterprise/switch-powerconnect-w/switch-powerconnect-w-650-651/pd.aspx?refid=switch-powerconnect-w-650-651&cs=555&s=biz Also, one of these: http://www.endian.com/us/, to connect the Comcast & DSL to this then wireless router. Also would like to have a repeater installed in the ceiling and work with POE. I've never really did a job like this and suggestions and opinions welcomed. I know that all of this based on what the owner is willing to pony up. But with a detailed well thought out plan that he understands might make for a good case to get the hardware installed. Thanks for your time & attention,
  21. They sent me a replacement. I bought another one from somewhere local. Thanks guys!
  22. Hello All, Has anyone experienced a blow out HDMI cable? I bought one from Monoprice.com and it worked for 2 days. Returned from a weekend vacation found out the kids were playing around w/ the HDMI cable and connecting it to their PS3. Troublshooted the cable & found it was defective. Could the kids done something to burn it out? Thanks for your time & attention,
  23. Hello All, I've had a hard time lately getting everything to behave. Last week I had a ubuntu box all setup & working w/ vmware. Well, that all ended when I tried to update to 10.10. Noticed that the kernel was incompatible and tried to recompile. I was like "OK" why not go back to the way it was. I did the WHOLE setup again. For the life of me it still just didn't want to work. I walked away & decided to play around w/ windows home server & vmware. I've loaded 3 different firewall packages and ALL of them are merging the interfaces! WTH!!!!!!!!!! Double checked the vmware bridge settings. On the home service the internet works just fine. But, forget it in a VM. The EXTERNAL connection just doesn't want to work. I've tried changing cables, cards, everything. I'm stuck. Anyone knows why this happening? Thanks for your time & attention,
  24. Hello All, I want you guys opinion on Wireless VGA. I'm getting a 46 LCD. My wife has a netbook and wants to use the LCD temporary for a display. She uses the netbook for school stuff nothing major. thanks for your time & attention,
  25. I'll check out the synaptic package manager. The episode you list is the one that I watched a few times to make sure I was following the directions. It was a lil vague on the web frontend install.
