General Tech Support / Re: Need help with Avira and DSL connection.
« Last post by Rocky_Grim on August 04, 2010, 03:05:59 pm »
I am using windows xp as this is a gaming pc. I like to run xp on it becuase it is lighter, and easier on rescources. There isn't a better firewall than the windows firewall that I can use that will not slow my internet down? I don't understand why someone would want to use a 3rd part firewall if it would limit there internet speed. Therefor, there has to be some time of work around. Can someone privide me with some more info on this?
Thanks,
Rocky

I would recommend using Windows Firewall, for a software solution. I'm not sure what Operating System you are running, but here is a step-by-step using Windows XP:

As you can see with no firewall.

I have did some more research I uninstalled Avira, and the problem was gone. Then I decided to go with Microsoft Security Essentials, and Private Firewall. As soon as I installed Private Firewall the timeouts were back. Also, I noticed the slow speeds. I was only getting 1mb/.30kb. Is there a firewall that I can use that will not slow my internet speeds to a crawl? This seams to be the problem.

If you're getting systematic packet loss and poor upload speed, I would contact the provider. I recommend the speed-test here: www.speedtest.net/mini.php

Hi guys,
I have Verizon DSL 3mb/768 plan. I just purchased Avira Premium Security Suite. When I run a tracert I am getting timeouts.
  1     1 ms     *       <1 ms  192.168.1.1

Is this normal? Also when I run speed tests I am getting whacky results like 37mb/.73.Anyone know anything I could try? Also, could someone provide me with some cablenut settings?I like cablenut better than TCP Optimizer.
Thanks!

Thanks for the information. I'm a fan of Tversity myself, simple, and quick to setup with no hassles. I use it to stream content to my Directv HD-DVR.

General Tech Support / Mediamall PlayON & Similar Streaming Software.
« Last post by DrStrangematter on July 26, 2010, 02:30:57 am »
Hello All ,
I was not sure exactly which place to post this , but hopefully it may help someone aside from myself.

I use the program from Mediamall called PlayOn to stream videos, Music, Pics, etc... to my consoles and I also have used Adjuster for years (love it).
Thing is , after reinstalling my updated PlayOn ver. it stopped being recognized as "running" and was not found by my PC or Consoles (360, PS3, or Wii).

It took me quite some time messing around with all sorts of settings: firewall , TCP/IP, services and on and on....

Shortening this story down a bit, I found that in Adjuster the setting  "DisableAddressSharing" was set to "1" .

It is also found in the Registry at : HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AFD\Parameters - were you will find : DisableAddressSharing   0x0000000(1)

So in either place , Adjuster or in the Reg , simply change that "1" to a "0" (Zero) and all is well in streaming land ! If this effected you as well , you may want to save you new settings in a custom profile so as not to re-apply the "1" if you ever need to set it up again.

Otherwise = Adjuster Kicks It Hard! - Loved it for years !
Thanks for all your work guys !
