I have an office that moved recently. Before it was using a Linksys wrt54g
wireless router, dsl from the telco (telus). Now it is adjacent to another
office set up the same way. Rather than continue to pay double we'd like to
share the cost and the connection. Can anyone suggest whether or how I can
program my router to pick up the wifi signal from the next office and get it
into my box? F7 if it matters.

Are you sure its a valid IP?
DSL or cable internet?got a router?
have you pinged loopback, localhost, gateway? tried pinging a remote IP?
if you can ping by IP but not name then DNS is screwy.

One makes mistakes, one doesn't do them :-) I know it's really
confusing, as most languages, especially those derived from Latin, the
everyday words for make and do are the same, but in English they aren't
(he said redundantly). BTW you don't come across as someone new to
English, judging from your posts here.

> Thanks a lot for the note :-)

When I was learning Spanish I was grateful for people correcting me. Now
I sometimes correct them :-) (and that's a language with two verbs for
"to be", which mean different things and are not interchangeable.)

Isn't it everybody's?

I'm only using this machine as a server - httpd, mysql,
openldap, etc.
I guess the slowest machine in the world is going to be faster
than my reasonably fast (4Mb/s) ADSL connection.

Exactly. If you're not going to be hitting Mysql with heavy queries, a
1GHz Celeron sans xorg would probably server you just as well.

The Linksys WAP11 could be set up to re-transmit a received wifi signal.
Don't know if the WRT54g has that capability or not. Have you googled
wireless bridges?

Curious, is cpuspeed active?

Since cpuspeed (see also powernow) can tinker with the processor's clock speed it is 'possible' but unlikely
that the audio code woke up with the CPU running at a low power slow speed and made timing decisions that mismatch the
CPU running at full speed.

To: fedora-list@redhat.com
Message-ID:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

Hi All,

My system has been spontaneously powering off once or twice a day for
the last week or so. The obvious candidate would be thermal issues, so
I took some steps to improve cooling and I believe that is fairly well
resolved. At the last power off that I was present for I checked the
CPU temp in the BIOS when it booted up and the temp was 45 degrees C.
I also tweaked some settings related to cpu voltage and powersaving
settings that seemed to help a bit (?). But still my longest run of
uptime has been about 18 hours.

I recently built this sytem, the specs are as follows:

System specs:
Fedora Core 9 x64_64
500W power supply
Core2 Duo E8400 proc @ 3Ghz
4 GB RAM
GIGABYTE GA-EP35C-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 motherboard
nvidia geforce 8800 GT

I've built plenty of systems before that never have had problems, but
I wouldn't completely rule out "build quality" I suppose -- I just
think it's unlikely. Can anyone give me some direction on what else I
can investigate? Any log files, BIOS settings (I know that's a little
out of the scope...), etc?

Thank you! Other than the intermittent loss of power I've really been
digging FC9 :)

This sounds like a power supply problem to me. A bad component that
overheats after running for a period of time.

I don't know about that Intel's, but on some AMD MB the higher end cpus would
cause machines to power off, the issue was that the MB in question was not
testing at all with the higher cpu speeds, and the higher cpus pulled too much
power and resulted in MB power components overheating, the initial solution was
to put a bigger heatsink on the power components, the later solution was to use
a larger power component, you may be able to test this sort of theory by having
a fan directly blow on the MB to keep everything nice and cool, you might also
use a temp meter and measure the temps on various components and see if anything
outside of the cpu is getting too warm, or you could using the powersavings
setting in Linux to not allow the cpu to run at the highest speed, if not
running at the highest speed helps, then it could be overheating, or causing
some other component to overheat. Also without something cpu intensive running
the cpu temp may not mean anything, if you do get something cpu intensive to
run, that may cause it to fall over fairly quickly.
