    Terrible wireless speed.

    I had Spectrum out again early this month. The tech pulled the Arris Modem and installed an Eubee Cable Modem. 1 - I was able to show him a paper print out from my cellphone, Pixel, that it could contact the Router but the router didn't have a incoming signal from the Modem. 2 - Wireless signal...

    Local "Cloud" storage vs NAS?

    So the difference would be Cloud = local hardware + "Cloud" controlling firmware installed in the HDD control board vs the same with "NAS" controlling firmware ... etc? Sounds like more advertising hype than a realizable advantage to me. Sent from my Pixel 5a using Tapatalk

    Local "Cloud" storage vs NAS?

    I'm working on networking our home. WAN to Cable Modem to Router to Unmanaged Switch in the Utility room (roughly the center of an ell-shape) (and WIFI APs on the west end and north end) to wired drops in selected rooms. So now I see mention of a local "Cloud" storage for a home. Say what? I've...

    New Motherboard

    Well it been a while since the last trip to repair. And other than the Win 11 TPM question I haven't had any concerns. I've had to reinstall some utilities that were lost along the way and I've still got to delete the Photoshop cloud version that I don't wish to pay for. But things are humming...

    USB Network Attached Storage

    Looks like I have to budget for a NAS (Network Attached Storage) enclosure. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    USB Network Attached Storage

    Is there an adapter to let me plug an external HD with a USB cable into a home network? Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    New Motherboard

    My Photoshop Computer is failing. I've had it in to a local shop 3 times since June.[emoji3525] First the SSD was replaced then it started quitting after the last Windows Update. Now it's back home after Widows reinstall (again) and I have yet to hook it up. I strongly suspect one of the MB...

    Windows 10 update = NO Google Chrome?

    My Win10 desktop locked up last week. First Chrome would load only to quit after a short while, may 5 minutes. Then the machine wouldn't restart. I took it into the local shop that installed a new SSD about July (this year) and the tech gave it back saying he could not find anything wrong. WTF...

    Stoopid question about hard drives - how do I tell which is which?

    Possibly not the best idea to unmount a drive while it's powered up. I'd shut down then restart but with only one external powered on. You've got a 50/50 chance of getting it right and you can rename the drive that appears to avoid the problem later on. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    PC unable to wake up from sleep

    I had a similar thing happen to my PC, also x64. I'd urge you to find a fix soonest as I had to have my boot SSD replaced. Not fun. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    TP Link Mesh router + Bluetooth - No thanks.

    I'm working on networking our new-old (1995 vintage) house. It has already had some cable drops installed and all in the "wrong" places (well, duh). I looked at MoCA (2 different coax cable sets already in the walls) - $180.00/cable run? - I don't think so. Then I looked at MESH - interesting...

    Backup software and routine.

    Application fonts not scaling when using 4 K monitor

    Bochane - that works for the UI (the "desktop" you're viewing) but not always for the the programs. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
