  1. Yes, have already gone through a few threads before, but haven't found anything concrete yet. Will be searching further in depth. Has a lot of information on airtel so might find something or the other useful. Thanks. Cheers.
  2. Today another executive came home to bridge their router. All he did was change the connection type in airtel router to "bridge" from previous "router" mode and changed the WAN id password in my asus router settings. It did not do jacksh*t. Internet stopped working and he absolutely had no clue what else to do and said he will discuss with the team and return later. lol. He just wanted me to accept that it cannot happen and make do with their router. If this is the level of incompetence in a firm like airtel i can't imagine what other ISP customers must be going through. Cheers.
  3. Quick update : Spoke with Airtel guys. Said they can bridge the airtel router but i need to pay for static ip for it to be permanent else after ever restart they have to re-do all the settings. They also said i cannot do anything by myself. Only they can change the settings. Cheers.
  4. Hey guys, i recently got a new airtel xstream connection and everything is working great. But i want to use my Asus router instead of the Airtel one. I read online that the way to do it is bridge the Airtel one. I have no knowledge in this regard. Online articles are not very clear. Does any one have link to a step by step guide/video? and do we have to inform airtel to enable any LAN port as bridge? Details would be helpful. Thanks in advance. Cheers.
  5. Guys, for fibre connection does anyone have experience with tata play? i have option to choose between tata play and airtel. Currently using you broadband since last eternity (more than a decade) lol. Any feedback on both these connections would be great. And how is the router provided by these companies? i already bought the asus RT-AX82U so don't really need it, but they would be providing it anyway. Cheers.
  6. Asus AX5400 RT-AX82U Wifi 6 Router. Cheers.
  7. Good 2K monitor for that price range. Usually people prefer bigger size monitors/TVs for consoles but if you are ok with the size and resolution i don't see why it would be a problem with PS5. It doesn't have good HDR though. Cheers.
  8. Yes can do that. Thanks. But still need suggestion for a good wifi6 router with mesh support for future-proofing. I can see a few from tplink (without mesh) and asus seem to be a bit pricey but wanted to know if going for asus under the 10k range would make any sense? Cheers.
  9. Need suggestions for a reliable wifi6 router preferably with mesh support. Need 8 LAN ports if possible. Area to be covered roughly 1300sqft. Budget preferably upto 6k. Can extend if no good options available in that range. Cheers.

    Finally! Hope they one-up every other game in the graphics department, like before! Would be cool to test the new RTX cards to their limits Cheers.
  11. No matter what hardware you may currently own, everyone needs to upgrade some day. So if you have the budget you should go for 2K monitor. Model will depend on your budget and priorities. First and foremost fix your budget range. There will always be a better monitor for few quids more. Set a hard budget limit and go for the best in that range. To select the best for you, decide the specs hierarchy as per your needs. Refresh rate, dimensions, overall rating, warranty support in India, response time, gsync/freesync support, type of panel etc. Cheers.
  12. After a lot of research, i got the Optima High back chair 1 year back, for gaming and working on the PC. Pros: Sturdy construction. Fit and finish is top-notch. Smoothness of wheels is unmatched. Tons of adjustability options. No sweating due to mesh construction. Mesh quality is also great. One of the very few rare office chairs with enough height and width support for 6'+ guys like me. Cons: Slightly on the expensive side if compared to regular market office chairs. I realised that i do not like mesh support and prefer full support. It is around your budget of 20K. Hope it helps. Cheers.
  13. Oh yes i meant heroic. So if i start a new game will i get an option to choose a different save location? I mean, i'm playing on PC, and i can see 3 different save slots with 2 slots empty and only 1 getting used for the current campaign. So if i can choose a different slot i can keep 2 game runs playable concurrently. Cheers.
  14. Managed to get the door open by restarting the entire mission. Finished the campaign on hardcore. Now if we restart the campaign on different difficulty, will the entire open world also reset? Cheers.
  15. Has anyone else faced an issue with the door not opening for the skull? I tried 6 times without No matter what i do the door just won't open! I'm currently playing on hardcore. Cheers.
  16. Dual-link DVI supports 2560×1600 resolution and 144hz refresh rates. But no use, as the monitor doesn't have a DVI port. GTX 750Ti has hdmi 1.4 i guess, so it will support 1920x1080 @120Hz, 2560x1440 @60Hz, 3840x2160 @30Hz & 4096x2160 @24Hz. If you are facing stuttering while playing youtube videos check your browser settings like in Chrome you can disable hardware acceleration. Cheers.
  17. It did work. Hope it lasts. I did delete the localCache.db file before and did a system restart but that didn't work. So maybe restarting Windows Explorer from the task bar after deleting the file works. I had also tried moving the icons outside the folders (on the desktop) and all icons except 1 had re-appeared. But when i shifted them inside the folders, they again went blank after 2-3 reboots. Hope i don't have to keep deleting the Icon cache file intermittently. Thanks. Cheers.
  18. Some of the shortcut icons on my desktop have become white/blank. I tried numerous online solutions but nothing seems to work. When i formatted my PC and re-installed windows 10 sometime back, the problem seemed to go away for few days and has started occurring again. So it's definitely some Windows 10 glitch. The icons only disappear when moved to a folder on the desktop. And only a few icons do that. This is some weird-a$$ glitch. Has anyone else faced this issue or something similar? Did anything work? Thanks in advance. Cheers.
  19. I have a UPS inverter which does the same thing. When i'm not gaming, it switches instantly and the system and TV keeps running after power cut. But recently when i was in a heavy gaming season the system shut down and restarted after power cut. So instead of surge protector, now i'm thinking of going for a UPS. I read that online UPS are the best as they provide true sine wave and there is no "switch-over" involved. Have shortlisted APC Online UPS 1kVA SRC1KI-IN with internal batteries. But it's super expensive. It has 800W rating and 90% efficiency. Other alternative is BR1500G, which you guys have, which is an offline UPS but cheaper than the 1st one. Although its not a true sine wave UPS instead a stepped approximation to a sinewave. Confused between the two. Cheers.
  20. So APC offline UPS would do the job or online UPS would be better? Cheers.
  21. Yes and not just that, even when "saving progress" appears, you do not necessarily start at the exact same location or with exact same weapons. Like for instance in tower mission when "saving progress" appeared i kept spawning outside the tower after reloads, then once i spawned outside the ransom keep instead of FOB, as last "saving progress" appeared when i crossed ransom keep and didn't appear when i fast travelled to FOB later. It also saved my scorpion tank once, at the FOB and didn't during the next save. Cheers.
  22. Same here. Hate the open world aspect of the game. Makes the Master Chief feel like a regular run and gun soldier. The save system is flawed as well! Cheers.
