    WoL - Works after a few minutes, but not hours

    Really big bump. I think I had this fixed at one point, but after my clean install of Windows 10, WoL doesn't appear to be working like it should.

    What's your Internet Speed?

    Looks like you got the Maxx updates. It's supposedly rolling out now in San Antonio, TX. They recently upgraded us from turbo 20/2 to extreme 30/5, so after Maxx, we should be getting 200/20. Expected by the end of July.

    Windows Media Center Overscan Problem

    Also, I just noticed that there are no overscan issues when recording programs via WMC.

    Windows Media Center Overscan Problem

    When running WMC in the traditional full screen mode, there are no overscan issues: However, when running WMC in windowed full screen mode (via The Maxifier), I get overscan issues: I can switch back to the traditional full screen mode from the windowed full screen mode, and it goes back to...

    What's your Internet Speed?

    Speedtest.net tests already download files as a means of testing speeds. The VVM server in Temple, TX downloads this: http://speedsrv1.vvm.com/mini/speedtest/random4000x4000.jpg I imagine all of their other servers downloading the same thing.

    Solved Remote Desktop - Only port 3389 works, even after changing

    RDP works very well on port 3389, which is forwarded through my router. If the port isn't forwarded, RDP obviously won't work. The second I apply the forwarded port, RDP will see the connection and ask for my login credentials. After changing the port number (from 3389 to something else) in...

    WoL - Works after a few minutes, but not hours

    I decided to get Wake-on-LAN reconfigured on my desktop to be able to turn it on whenever I want to, if I just so happen to forget to do so in the morning. I forwarded port 9 on my router, set within the BIOS to wake from a PCIe device, and set my Ethernet adapter in Windows 8 to allow itself...

    What's your Internet Speed?

    Com[Fail]cast in Jacksonville, FL. My plan's supposed to be 25/5, so I'll take this. Unfortunately, I can't say that it's too stable, even via Ethernet. There have been a few days where I came home, after being gone all day, to seeing download speeds of 0.25Mbps while the upload was normal...

    PPTP VPN Server - Can connect, but that's it

    Bump? I can still connect, get a proper, pingable IP address, but that's still it. Can't access local data or Internet.

    Elevated Command Prompt window opens and closes instantly

    Ah--it all makes sense now.

    Elevated Command Prompt window opens and closes instantly

    And that just did the trick across the board :). It turns out that the Take Ownership content menu tweak went in place of Run as Administrator, which messed things up. Everything's working as it should. My issue with LogMeIn was also instantly fixed. Thanks!

    Elevated Command Prompt window opens and closes instantly

    Tried that with cmd, calc and cleanmgr. Each one opened and closed instantly. I'm thinking about just taking a few hours to do a complete installation of Windows 8.1 from scratch. Haven't done one since W8 Pro first hit MSDN. Should probably fix a few other problems that I've been dealing with...
