Hello .....I'm back , Just had the Bigpond wireless modem installed , when I logged onto EO it was shockingly slow, ,anyhow I decided to set up the laptop for the modem and noticed it was lightning fast, so come to the conclusion it was the USB port , I had it in the slower port, swapped it over to another and wow did that make a difference, So if there are others who think it is slow, change to another USB port.

Yes - I have also noticed this with mine.

If you have several USB ports on a PC, particularly some on front and some on back, then they may have different connections to the main system bus. The speed difference in those connections can be dramatic. Can also be an issue if you use an external USB hub.

By the way Doug, insurance claim for my old knackered GPS approved and a NUVI660 is on it's way!

Cheers

Hi Doug T and Dusty, In your Rig pic you are putting in these places and asking "where is it"? but I seem to be missing where they are , are you telling us or not??? lol I am trying to work them out. I went into your pictures thinking you may put them in there when you change them but alas no.

Cheers

Yeh of course, I wait until someone says the right place, I tell them when they get it right and add another one . of course though if your going back to previous answers that will appear with a new photo that will cause you some confusion and of course it will no longer apply once I change the photo, it's not a contest, no prizes , just a bit of Aussie fun,

Yeh I realise that it was just fun and there were no prizes but was interested in a couple of the places but missed where they were.

Thanks for reply

Cheers

What I might do is upload a new one because I lost internet connection for 4 days and have begun a new wireless setup, really pleased with it , faster than the ADSL 512kbps I had
So these drums are used for watering the trees just south of Cue WA

Yeh we did see those on our way back from Newman a few months ago.

The photo of a plane, I thought maybe in front of a museum , was wondering where that one was, there was a scenery one but a seniors moment has hit ( they last a long time with me!!!!) can't quite remember it.

Cheers

The Plane is a MIG15 and is at the rear entrance to the Archerfield Airport Qld , it is down the street behind the BP Truckport,
The Radar use to be at the OTC site at Carnarvon, it is no longer there except for the base it stood on , that is still there,

Doug, perhaps you also have a USB 1.1 port on the other computer too. I see that was on a previous (to the laptop setup) computer.

I have one of the desktop modems with an external antenna and found it wasn't good on the network. Apparently they will have an ethernet connection soon to plug into a router that will make life easier that way. The ethernet connection should work with any of the USB Maxon modems according to the Maxon site forum.

Doug, not sure if you have had yours hang? They have had a habit of it apparently as mine has. Have to reset them by pressing the reset or turning off the power to the modem.

Because the software to dial seems to need attendance I only have the laptop connected. Sometimes it goes through the network for the ISDN internet and sometimes through Next G. Next G is maxed at 256 here to keep costs lower.
Cheers,
Who?
