Rural Internet?

I am sure that from the title many know what I am about to say.  I need fast rural internet.  Now I have seen huge's net, wildblue, and starband.  The problem is that the first two offer puny download/upload limits.  I am not the kind of person who checks my email and that is it.  I wan't to host servers, stream movies and watch HD youtube.  Yea these satellite companies offer great download speeds, especially starband which I haven't seen a cap for, but the upload speeds are HORRIBLE, worse than what I have now which is really bad.  Now this is obvious because your sending information to SPACE.  So can I maybe get an aftermarket transmitter that is like NASA grade or something.  Or do I need to find a down to earth method to do this.  I live in the middle of nowhere so there is really no other way I don't think.  Do you have any ideas or services you would recommend.

Internet Lag?

I've had a lot of success with questions on this site so I thought I would ask this one. My internet works fine most of the time. I have one computer that has a modem and router hooked up to it for internet. I also have another computer that is wireless in the next room over, and an xbox that can go wireless or wired (mostly wired). The wireless computer can always be connected, but the the other computer (with the modem and router) has to be disconnected if I want to play xbox online. If I don't disconnect it, I will lag all over the place while trying to play some Call Of Duty on xbox. Yet the wireless computer doesn't affect it what-so-ever. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this or why it is happening? Thanks.

Internet Not Working Sporadically

Hi, I am using my laptop which is plugged into the internet via a cable as is my brother respectively in his room, our internet often comes up with an 'error, could not load' page when we try to access websites and then after a few seconds will sometimes load again but often does not manage to load web pages fully, my mother and other brother are also using the internet via a cable plugged in and their internet is perfectly fine. We have both tried switching to wifi or switching cables or changing our firewalls and nothing seems to work, it is also equally problematic whether there is 1 or 5 people using the internet, does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem could be or how to fix it?

The Internet is a Big Thing.

Really.Really. Big.So I was bored. So bored, in fact, that I decided to Google myself. I clicked the text box of my Google search bar and typed in Labot2001. Just to see what comes up, what web sites I've forgotten about, who spies on me, etc. It wasn't until I Googled myself that I realized how big the Internet actually was.For example, my mousetrap car showed up on MAKE. And about 50 million other places. Same with a handful of my other ibles. It's weird to think that the Internet just loops around, through, and under itself a million times. Sometimes without even realizing it.So try it. Google yourself. Share what you find.

Wireless internet receiver? Answered

Is there any device that you can plug into your router in one room, and then connects wirelessly to a receiver in another room, and then that connects to a device such as a laptop? What I am looking to do is take the ethernet jack that is in my moms office and hook the transmitter up to it. Then take then take the wireless receiver and put it in my room to hook it up to my Apple Time Capsule. From the Time Capsule I would send the wireless signal to my laptop sitting right next to it. If you are thinking I could just hook my Time capsule up to the modem in my moms office, thats the way we have it set up right now, which gives me a very weak internet signal, if any, so if there is any device that will do this it has to send out a stronger signal than the Time Capsule. If you don't understand what I was saying you can look ant the diagram below. Is this possible?

Internet ad awarness

One of my children was on a game site called "girl games", and a very inappropriate ad was displayed in the center of the screen without any prompting from my child. My children will no longer be going on this site, and I think a whole lot more discretion and good judgment should be used by the site as far as their ads are concerned. The ad was very upsetting to my children, and therefore to myself. These ads are for a website called 'IMVU', which is a 3-D avatar chat room. The ads show skimpily dressed people, usually female, in compromising positions. They are placed on all kinds of web sites, even though the website in question may contain games for small children, which is indeed were this ad was. Do we want our children looking at disgusting and perverted images like this?

internet for xbox live

I used to have high speed internet., the service provider was AT&T. One day we could not get internet. at&t said we had it. The main point is that we don;t have any more. I was looking into one of those connect cards, and wondered is it fast enough for xbox live. Do you need 3G coverage for it to work.. I live right out side the boundry between 3G and the lower bit for Verizion. I checked a local cell phone service coverage and its the same thing as Verizion. My question is what do I do. Are the conect cards fast enough any way or what. And if so, who has the best. the cheapest, and the best MB limit.  Who should I go with and what do I do. My local cell company is Cellular South. I was looking at CS's Huawei EC 168 Data Card. Just google cellular south connect card to find it.  I am definetly going to get the 5 gigs of possible downloads.(if my parents will pay for it) I am only 14, so I can't do a whole lot.

Internet connection problems? Answered

Hi!  I am running Windows XP on a virtual machine.  My NIC settings are for a bridged adapter, and I need to keep it that way.  The host computer can communicate with microsoft.com and silverlight just fine, but my virtual machine can not (although every other website that I have tried works just fine... I'm actually posting this from my Virtual machine).  I also have a server that is running server 2003 that has the same problem.  All other PCs are running either Windows 7 Pro, (and my parents have Vista Home Premium).  Every computer including my parents work just fine with microsoft.com and silverlight.  My router is running DD-WRT micro, but I don't know if that helps any.  Since Server 2003 and XP both have the same problem, and Server 2003 is based off of XP, I'm wondering if it has something to do with XP.  I am using my virtual machine for testing purposes, and I need it to work with silverlight.  Any suggestions on how I might fix this? Thanks!

Why doesn't my internet work properly on my laptop but it works fine on my PC?

Hey, can someone please help me? I have this problem and its really frustrating. My problem is..When I connect to the internet it usually says I have internet connection but Google Chrome says "The web page cant be loaded" and after a few minutes my internet connection goes down and says I have no internet access. So I reconnect to the internet and the same thing happens, I repeat the process and a few times it works but only for a few minutes and then it happens again. (The internet works perfectly fine on other laptops and phones but its just mine for some reason). I asked this on another site and someone told me to go to "My Computer" and then right click it, then go manage, then to click on "Device Manager" and then click on "Network Adapters" and to double click on each of the Intel (R) things there. Then to click on the power manager tab and untick the box that is ticked. I have also done this: 1. Click Start, go to control panel. 2. Click Network and Internet. 3. Click Networking and Sharing Center. 4. Click Change adapter settings 5. Find your wireless adapter, right click it, and click Properties. 6. Scroll down to Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and double click it. 7. Click the radio button that says "Use the following DNS server addresses:" 8. Put 8.8.8.8 for the Preferred DNS server, and 8.8.4.4 for the Alternate DNS server. 9. Click OK and test your internet. Can anyone please help me?
