  • @CrazyJoe said: Do you own the house, or just renting? I concur with CB, that's strange to build something like that in a house, but then not give the homeowner access to it. It isn't a padlock so can't cut it off, the lock is built into …
  • @Ryder said: It needs to be connected to a lan port on the wifi router not the Wan port. Looks like I will not have to resort to picking the lock. Switched the plug from WAN to LAN and now all my points work, thanks for your help.
  • @Ryder said: Yes but the termination of all the ethernet connections is likely in that cabinet. Without access it becomes a little hit or miss. Does the wifi router have 1 or more ethernet ports? If yes then connect a cable to one of the in w…
  • OK, so I have tried changing the power settings but it didn't seem to have any effect. I also found another thread where someone else had a similar problem and they disabled "WMM" in their network card settings which worked for them. I gave that a g…
  • Ok thanks guys, I think it has happened while plugged in as well but I'll give the power settings a go and let you know if it works.
  • I have a double storey house with the wireless router downstairs next to my TV and I have a wireless repeater upstairs in the retreat. So far I have mainly been using the laptop in my bedroom upstairs, however I did try using it downstairs a couple …
  • Thanks Jokke, I have updated the drivers for my wireless network card and my computer has stayed on for half a day without the BSOD! I am forever in your debt, thanks again.

  • Thanks for your help guys. I ended up taking it to a computer store and they found out what the problem was at a cost of $70 to me!! It turns out that I had a faulty ram stick. So all I had to do was try booting up the computer after removing one…

  • Yep, looks good. Thanks for your time, it's greatly appreciated. By the way I have stopped AVG from scanning for tracking cookies because it always finds stuff every few minutes. Should I leave it so that it doesn't scan for tracking cookies? …

  • Hi, I managed to stop the CPU over heating, for the time being at least. I think one of the clips for the heat sink had come loose. Anyway, I have done the scan and here is the log: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.30 Database version: 1401 W…
  • Hi, I downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and proceeded to do a full scan but the computer shut down before the scan could complete. I then decided to clean all the dust off the CPU cooler thinking that the CPU was overheating because the fa…

  • Hi, My computer is doing very well, thanks for all the help I really appreciate it. I still cannot get the sound working for DVDs in Windows Media Player however it is not that important as I can still use Real Player or other porgrams.
  • Hi Vekarppe, My ISP is Netspace which seems to be Asia Pacific's "Net Name" so I think it is ok. Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2 Scan saved at 10:13:04 AM, on 20/04/2008 Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Exp…
  • Hi Vekarppe, No Asia Pacific Network Information Centre is not my ISP, why do you ask? The problems with the malware popups have been gone ever since I ran Combo Fix for the first time. However my web browsing has been a bit slow lately but…

  • I copied the notepad file to combofix; a blue dos window opened up for about half a second but then nothing else happened. I then tried double clicking on combofix and the same thing happened. It doesn't scan my computer like it did the first time a…
  • Hi Vekarppe, I have not yet created the notepad file and copied it combofix as my system now seems to be free of the very annoying pop ups that I was receiving. Should I still create the notepad file and copy it to combofix?
  • Hi Vekarppe, Thanks for the help, I downloaded Combofix and did a scan. I also rescanned the system using HijackThis. Here is the Combofix report: ComboFix 08-04-04.1 - Owner 2008-04-05 11:44:13.1 - NTFSx86 Microsoft Windows XP Professiona…

  • I have tried unplugging the router and plugging it back it many times, I have also tried the reset button that is on the router, both these actions seem to have no effect. I also tried typing in what you suggested (tftp -i 192.168.1.1 PUT upgradeima…
