    What are you guys using for a router that you love?

    I have an Asus RT-AX86U. For me its been good, but i dont use much wireless most of my things are hard wired in. The few things i do use wireless on never had any issues or needed reboots outside of firmware updates.

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    very torn to preorder, buy in store or wait. When i bought my 3xl i got a google fi credit for the full purchase price of the phone so basically no phone bill for the next 2 years give or take. Would love to see a similar offer on the 6 but i doubt they will be doing anything like that again...

    Disney may be resurrecting Lucasfilm Games

    All I have been asking for is an "remastered" version of the x-wing/tie fighter series. I still have the originals and play them from time to time but would like to see updated graphics and controls. I guess the closest thing would be squadrons at the moment.

    strange isp problem

    I was thinking routing as well, but only from some IPs going to other IPs? I may need to see if they will hire me part time just to look at their network setup. I am very curios into what was going on. The only other thing I can think of might be some horrible QoS was implemented. but then...

    strange isp problem

    This is more for my curiosity to get people's opinions on what might have been going on. So I was having this problem with my ISP over the last 4 or 5 days where I could not VPN to work at all. Thankfully I was technically on vacation and didn't really have to work. From a packet capture on my...

    Waiting for it to arrive but was able to snag a bundle from newegg. Should arrive Friday for my new build. I was following following a few discords and twitter accounts to get notifications. Ended up getting the newegg "we are going to stock things at x time" message, refresh at that time and...

    GPU stock numbers

    that would be that granular level stuff I am not sure if Nvidia or AMD would ever provide. If they said we sold 100 to HP and 5k to Dell, then those companies might start having issues with them for distribution. But if they could just say hey we shipped 10k units to USA, 5k to Mexico, etc...

    GPU stock numbers

    makes sense. I guess if the PR about "paper launches" were to ever actually affect these companies they might be a little more forward with such data. I can see good and bad about releasing such numbers publicly and am i am sure the companies weigh it on which would help profits if have any...
