This autotuning fix is definately something to try if you are experiencing slow network/internet speeds in Vista / Windows 7 or 2008 server.
How do you run this fix:
To turn off autotuning launch a command prompt as an Administrator (type “cmd” into the Start box, right click on Command Prompt and select “Run as Administrator), then enter the following line:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled
Restart your pc after running this command.
If you want to set this back to normal type the following:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=normal

Good ol’ ntbackup is back again. Running vista, w7 or win 2008 server and need to recover or backup files with ntbackup? I will explain how to do this (See below).
I do like the new backup in Win 7 / 2008 server. Image / block level backups are great, especially when you can run a first big backup and afterwards only backup incrementally what has changed.
What is block based file backup? Each block in a file is examined. If a duplicate already exists, even from a different file, it is not saved. After the first backup only the delta or the changed blocks are saved in the next backup.
Here how to use ntbackup on Vista / W7 / Server 2008:

You can find these in c:\windows\system32 of Win XP.
I have created a page about the difference between Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat6a cables. This info has been out for a while, but I just needed a refresher and to have all the info on one page rather then searching everywhere. Have a read here
