Their are different types of usb ports. The oldest one is USB1, then comes USB2 which is now mostly used and just out is USB3 but that isn't used by a lot of people at this moment.

Type A and Type B refer to a type of plug on the end of a USB Cable.

USB 2.0 and 3.0 are protocol shifts, 3.0 has some additional hardware behind the cables and 1.0 and 2.0 are identical cable wise. 3.0 is backwards compatible with 1.0 and 2.0.

How do you open a port on your ip address?

It really depends on your router. But usually, you can open up Command prompt, type IpConfig, and then look for something that says Ipv4 address. Then go into your internet browser, type, find something that says "Port Forwarding" or "Port Opening". Then add a new one. Type a name for it, in the port spots, put the ports you want open, in the address spot, put your Ipv4 address. Bam. The port should be open.

(Include the colon!) I hope this answered your question!

What device can be used to upload software to a notebook with a CD drive?

A CD :) I know that is not the answer you are looking for. When looking at the notebook does it have ANY ports? Does it have a USB port? Does it have RJ 11, RJ 45 or serial ports? (If you do not know what these look like just type the port names i have listed in your Google browser and search the images category... You will see pictures of what the ports look like). Once you know what ports you have you can figure out what device you can use to up load data. You just buy an external harddrive/memory unit that has the same connection/connector. If you only have an AC port and a CD drive your options are... A CD.

Why can't i connect to IWNet?

If you're having problems connecting, make sure you've got the correct Router ports opened or triggered, both for the PS3 & PSN, and the specific MW2 ports as well.ROUTER NAT AND UPnP MODES - ENABLED*Note: Make sure to enable these TCP/UDP ports in BOTH directions (i.e, for Routers that have TCP, UDP, and Both for settings, set them to Both. If your Router doesn't have that type of setting, set the Port to either TCP or UDP as indicated, and enable the pass-through in both directions (full duplex))TCP Ports: 10070 - 10080 UDP Ports: 10070 Voice Chat: UDP 6000-7000, 10070 (for headset operation) Remote Play via Access Point: TCP 9293PLAYSTATION Network: TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223 UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658Call of Duty - MW2 Ports:TCP 27014-27050 UDP 1500, 3005, 3101, 27000-27030, 28960It's easier to use Port Range Forwarding or Triggering instead of Single Port Forwarding. In those cases where there isn't a range but only a single port listed, your range is the same port, e.g., Range 5223-5223 for Port 5223. Port Triggering is also preferable to Port Forwarding, since Triggering relies on the game or application in question to trigger the Port request when necessary to the Router. Static Port Forwarding setups keep your Ports open as long as they are enabled in the Router setting, and as such are more vulnerable. Trigger Ports are only open as long as the game or application needs them to be open.
