    Trying to use Netgear C7000 as Access Point - but having issues

    Have thought about using APs with a central controller? Managing multiple isolated APs with no central controller is a frustrating experience. If all APs are blasting full power radios, the wireless clients, especially phones, often don't have enough transmit strenght to get back to the AP. This...

    Games today is not what they have been.

    You might be experiencing some burnout. Try taking a small break and coming back. Maybe take on a new hobby on the side and come back with a fresh perspective and dive in. Maybe you can learn programming? Woodworking?

    facebook silliness

    On top of the above suggestions, I'd also recommend you get a pi-hole DNS server at home and run that. Also, if you're following a Facebook link always use Private/Incognito so cookies are not used. Facebook loves it when you're logged into other services when you visit their website.

    Need assurance on my network setup 2.5bps

    This is a marketing problem, not a technology problem. The mGig interface exists to provide LAN clients that support mGig higher than gigabit speeds to wireless clients (if your wireless architecture can even deliver faster than gigabit speeds). Typically mGig deployments (there aren't that...

    Check internet connection...

    I don't understand the use-case for this. Are you trying to integrate into something and send automated alerts that a circuit is having an issue? There's like a million tools out there that do this.
