Oh man you didn't!! You actually put that disgusting pic as your avatar! I mean, you could have used Dame Edna or David Duchovney in drag, even Graham Norton in a tutu but that thing, that's just sick. Rep - - - for doing that dude.

@ Everyone. No one is safe guys, someone tried to hack our bank account, change Mindy's access to it & take her identity. We, of course, are fully protected and didn't loose anything but we have to get new checks, new cards, new accounts all around and we've had the same account number for 18 years.
Our local net is safe though, one of the neighbor kids was in our house and took out his PDA and asked "Did you know your network is invisible?". HA HA HA!!! This kid is studying computer science in College (3rd year, all A's) and he can't find my router when he's standing next to it! Of course it's invisible dude, I was working on computers when your mama was a teenager!
Ouch. Sorry about the bank. And Lol @ invisible network.

is there an article on how to make a wireless network invisible?
I would love to experiment with this so it is secure. Our neighbors might be hackers lol who knows.

This is pretty comprehensive, has instructions for most common routers out there. Good luck.

Pretty sure the 5850 will knock your socks off, unless you have one of those water cooled GTX 295 beasts now. I was floored by the performance of my 5870 and I put the 5850 in my wifes rig, not so much difference that I can actually see a performance drop. As always too, adding a second is much better than getting 2 GPU's on one PCB.

@ General E. Great thread you started on that subject boss, but there's always someone (idiot) that has to come and stomp thier feet and say unh uhhh or you can't prove it!! They just gotta because thier stuff isn't so hot. Oh BTW, you don't have to have a 790 board to triple cross fire, but you probably already know, a 757 will do it with just a little drop in performance and my 758 will do it easy peasy & I'm sure you can only see the drop when you display the framerate.

Ummmm, strawberries from Watsonville, CA. They taste soooo goood and they're 2lbs for $6- at Costco. Tee heeeee!!

Trying to finish up painting before it turns nasty outside, or gets to dark that the blue wont pop like it should in the light.
Yeah Danny Boy, I don't know about up there but our weather prediction says rain and clouds over the weekend. Thanks for the darker "here" at the end of your link, I noticed it right away. Also, if you want to perfect your painting talents I'll send you Mindy's Scout.

I'd probably opt for a 5850 now, or if you have the means, get 2






Oh, and I is back
Yep, you're right, as above 2 5850's will kick boooty!
BTW, Welcome back Photonmoo!!

Oh man some of these guys get so over complex. Huh, I'm one to talk right? Ok, where's my hat?

Ok, so you've got a router. No, I'll use me. Say my router is 10.10.1.1, I've got my machine hard wired to the router so that makes my machine 10.10.1.100. Oh bring up your routers config page (usually works better in Firefox better than IE), this stuff is listed under DHCP reservations. Mindy's Scout becomes 10.10.1.101, it's wireless, her laptop becomes 10.10.1.102 then I've got 2 Virtual Machines running and they become 10.10.1.103 & 10.10.1.104 then I turn on the printer and since it's wireless too it becomes 10.10.1.105 and since Mindy's Scout only has a USB dongle as a transmitter, it doesn't play well with the printer so her hard line to the printer becomes 10.10.1.106. Right now anyone in the neighborhood, anyone doing war driving and anyone passing by can see the whole thing and if I turn a couple off and back on, the order things are in usually changes.
So first, under DHCP reservations you can usually see the Mac Address of all the machines in your network, so first you write down all the ip adresses of you network and the Mac Address. Oh, if you can't see the Mac Address you can get CC Get Mac Address at http://www.youngzsoft.net/cc-get-mac-address/
After you have everything written down, somewhere on your router page there's a way to make "static ip addresses", it may be under DHCP reservations or under Static IP, if you can't find it go to the forums on your routers internet page and ask where it is. Then you enter each one of those ip addresses followed by the mac address and tell your router to save configuration.
Now that you've done this you can make it invisible because your router never again has to look for a device so you go back into the configuration page and pick the strongest "WiFi Protected Setup" you can get, Wpa, Wpa2 personal, whatever your router says is the strongest. If you haven't already, go around to all your devices and tell them what your network name is. Then pick some off the wall password using letters numbers Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, symbols or anything you can so that no one can guess it. Enter it into the password spot on your routers config page & under "encryption" pick "TKIP or AES", go around to all your devices & under network tell them what your network name is and the password. Also there should be someplace on the router pages that says: "Key renewal", make this 3600ms or less but make sure your other wireless devices can keep up. What that does is, it makes your router renew the encription key (40bit, 128bit, 256bit or DDC) it doesn't matter. Anyone that can log onto your network will be kicked off when the router renews.

Now, if your router has an "Administration" page you'll probably see that the password/passphrase is not the same as what you entered. Don't mess with it!! I listened to someone at Linksys and I had to start all over!
Then once you've gone through all of this get to the router page that has the "Save Configuration" button on it and hit it, it might have you print it or save it. If you save it, you should save it off of your computer, put it on a CD/DVD, flash drive, anything you got and if possible make 2 copies and give one to you mom, dad, relative you trust, bank or somewhere that's not in your house.
Now, exit out of your routers configuration page and poof your network vanishes to all but those who you've assigned ip address and mac addresses to.

Edit added:
D'oh!! Now I see the article was written in 2007. Well even if your router is older than that, what I wrote usually works no problem. The guy that taught me, his router really does start at 10.10.1.1, that's old, like 802.11b.

It moves far less air than a 200mm, but it says it runs allot quieter though. I am pretty sure my 200mm at 700rpm would be about the same. Plus the CM 200mm has a very tiny frame, giving good visuals around it.

Seems like there a bit of a networking discussion going on..

Just a few FYI's from my knowledge base:


Wireless Security: (I recommend)
  • WPA2 Personal
  • AES
  • Note - WPA2 encrypts your key. The number you enter in the field (in seconds) is the amount of time that passes before a new encryption is developed. I use 1200 seconds, if you were curious.
  • As far as the invisible network broadcast. I'm sure there are more advanced ways to do this, but basically what you do is:

Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings > Wireless SSID Broadcast:

Choose the radio button "Disable".

  • This means that you are disabling a broadcast of your network. So when neighbors check the networks in their area, yours won't appear.
  • You want to be sure to connect all of your wireless devices prior to doing this.
  • If you want extra added security, to filter out unwanted devices on your network, get all of the MAC addresses of all WIRELESS devices.
  • You can find this on your PC's by running the command prompt (run > cmd > OK) and typing:

"ipconfig /all" (without the quotes).

The results will give you the "Physical Address" (MAC address).

Wireless > Wireless Mac Filter > Edit MAC Filter List:

Add all device MAC address.

  • The result will be, any device who's MAC address is not on that list will not be able to connect to the network even if they have the network's SSID and pass-phrase.

I doubt the everyday hacker will try to get onto your network if he/she has to go through all of that work. For more advanced security options, I'm sure there are more ways, but it seems a little unnecessary to me. The above configuration is what I use.
