    Are there any different firmware versions that I could use for either my linksys or my belkin routers that might help me out? I was just reading and this guy had the same problem but with a different linksys router. http://slashstar.com/blogs/tim/archi...ys-router.aspx

    So, could I try the same firmware even though it is for a different linksys router or is there anything else I could try?

    for linksys routers i like the dd-wrt firmware.

    what version router do you have? it should be on the bottom... it says something like "wrt54g v2" etc.

    edit: also yea it wouldnt matter if you're wired to it.

    It's befsr41. I wouldn't mind checking that out if you pointed me in the right direction.

    http://www.linksysinfo.org

    probably all the information you'll ever need on linksys routers.

    edit: apparently not much you can do firmware-wise with just wired routers

    PC Upgrades

    1 GB K-MEM Memory/1GB DDR2 667MHz (PC 5300)
    http://www.goldchip.uk.com/details.a...&subCatId=4352

    I'm going to buy 2 of these to give me 2GB RAM in dual channel.

    PowerColor X1650PRO 512MB GDDR2 128Bit DVI PCI-E Graphics card
    http://www.goldchip.uk.com/details.a...&subCatId=4212

    Is this decent enough to run The Orange Box, Gears of War, Halo 2? No crazy settings or resolutions. I'm happy with 1280x800 + low-medium.

    I will still be using my Pentium 4 @ 3GHz though.

    edit: Once I get this graphics card I'm going to sell the one I'm currently using (Powercolor x1050 for £12 to the local computer shop). That'll pay for one of the sticks of RAM.

    not sure about the graphics card... i have an x1600xt that barely played halo 2 with low graphics on 1024x768

    might want to consider something a little more powerful?

    I see, I don't think I'm going to bother with that card then.

    Can anyone tell me how Vista would run with 768mb RAM?

    I was considering it with 512mb.

    I would do it for the lulz but I would want another hard drive to install it onto, I don't want to lose my files or my Windows XP install.

    edit: I would just like to prove that it is possible to run it with below the minimum requirements, I mean what does Windows XP say you need? 256? It runs fine with 96mb.

    Just get Vista and a Vista Lite pack or whatever they're called. Online installs the important shit, so it may run okay on <1gb.

    Can't you VMware it?

    That's running 2 OSes and a resource heavy application? .

    With some heavy tweaking it may run fine. But why bother, something wrong with XP?

    Windows XP requirements are like 64mb of RAM.
