For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
I've always just used an ink-jet all-in-one and called it good. I used to buy HP, but the materials seem flimsy now, so my current device is from Brother. There are some things that just aren't worth spending a lot of time thinking about. Go to a store that has a bunch on display and choose one.
Unless you foresee a change in line technology, I'd go for a combination. One less box to worry about. I have had a couple of ADSL modem + 4 port router + wifi boxes, and they do just fine. 3 wired ports in use and about 6 wireless devices. Whatever you get, make sure you lock down the admin access.

Go for the two in one option if oyu have a choice.
I don't have a choice as my ISP provides me with a fibre router(fibre cable in and one cat5 out) - I run a router/gateway off that.
My main computers then run off the gateway via Cat5 and I also have the wireless, on the gateway, switched on so that I can use mobile devices around the flat.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
I look at the specs on various motherboards, and don't see anything about the number of monitors they will support.
A low-end motherboard will usually have onboard video capable of supporting one monitor. However, higher level motherboards will not have onboard video. For them, you must purchase and install one or more graphics cards.
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
Motherboards normally only support 1 or 2 monitors, one on VGA and the other on some digital. If you're going to run 3 monitors, seriously, forget on-board video. It usually sucks ass. You're going to get a separate video card.
You start with which CPU you're going to run, then you go to the motherboard and RAM. Which one you get depends on what you're going to do with the thing and whether or not you're going to tweak the chipset to eek out every bit of speed you can get.
On my rig, I have an Asus P8-P67 motherboad and run dual GTX770's, and (3) 24" monitors.
I am no expert in these things. But I do know that I can read such properties from the Networking interface, or from the Device manager (if you're having Windows). Otherwise, you can always check for the Mac address for your own system (Read the manual?)

In my in-laws house they have plenty of Windows computers and one iMac (my mother in-law).
They have all the computers, consoles, TV's and a myriad of devices connected through powerline adapters.
The iMac is connected trough WIFI.
When accessing a specific web site (one of the most visited sites in Spain and of course the starting site of the safari configuration in my in-law iMac) some times it appears the following message:
"BAD GATEWAY, The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server"
Of course no proxy server is configured neither a proxy is there...
Wifi signal oscillates from maximum to almost nothing, and seeing that I connected another powerline to the iMac, automatically the computer took a set of correct IP configuration values.
Even with the powerline the message still appears...
Being that one the first time I touched an iMac or an iSomething... could any of you give me a clue to follow?
