Re: Sharing files over the network breaks my network

Does downloading or uploading files to an online site cause the same issue?


Do you have updated drivers/firmware for your motherboard?

Re: Replacing Windows 7 with Ubuntu

If you have an external drive, I'd recommend moving all your files to that so you can mess around with different OS's and see what you like.

If you want to get rid of Ubuntu and keep Windows7, you...

When this happens do ALL your devices lose internet connection or just the computer?

I'd switch SSD to Vertex 4, and the memory to Corsair Dominator GT.

Re: Tax Return, Time to upgrade. Any changes on my build welcome.

I'd change the SSD to an OCZ Vertex 4 (128gb). Similar price, much better from what I've read (huge IOPS increase).
