    ASUS ROG GT-AXE11000 only netting 200-500mbps WiFi

    I think the problem may be your expectations. Up to 2500mbps on wired. Note up to. What is your expectation for wireless? Note your Comcast guy didn’t tell you what you’d be getting there. So what are your expectations as to what you’d expect to see? And I read the network forum here...

    Sure and then the conversation: Employee meeting in 5 minutes. Sorry to inform you…. You’re all fired as the government shut us down. Paychecks in the mail. It helps to understand dumb actions have consequences too.

    Proton mail may log ips after all...

    Realistically companies can't do much when they have a court order at their door. We say well how does it make it any better? The observation is that no matter what you think, or someone says, if you have a connected device you are prone to being tracked. It may be harder in some cases than...

    Proton mail may log ips after all...

    Not really. Because it’s not advertised in that way. It’s advertised as no IP logging. Which is mostly true. But it’s also blatantly false under these circumstances. For the majority of us it won’t matter one iota. But it does question the credibility of the company by its own claims. I...

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    Honestly I would like to believe so but thank goodness I have never had to experience it. My thoughts just go to the abuse that will eventually happen with this kind of stuff. Time will tell.

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    With this it can change because you can allow but you can also make them get a warrant and they have to convince a judge to say yes. With this you’re suggesting an over reach of mega proportions. What you saying is they came once and someone may have said yes which then gives them permission...

    The courts will have to decide this unfortunately. I share your concerns.

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    If they are reading hashes or anything what’s to stop Apple from stealing your intellectual property while they are there? Dare to ask who these people are and their qualifications for such a job? Seems like this will end up in the courts one way or the other.

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    You’re making generalizations that no one knows for sure except their situation. For me I have a 7 year old box. There is no point to upgrade right now. Upgrading everything but the video card gains me what? A real world increase of a second or two? It works for what I need it to do at...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Why shouldn’t they care? On the surface it may be a good thing to push them to another platform. I don’t have to agree with it though it may just be so small it’s insignificant to start with. But if I’m transitioning why on earth would I ever want or recommend a company that does this...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    That’s the rub right? Do we start putting end of life dates/stickers on all hardware that won’t work after “x” date? If a person is surfing the web and emails as a primary function hardware can last a long time. Thanks for pushing them to other tools, phones, tablets etc. All I am saying is...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    The simple answer is if you have hardware and it’s running and working there’s no point in upgrading. If MS wants everyone in the latest and greatest patched OS then they have to realize people use computers and don’t always upgrade them. I have 7 year old computer that is doing everything I...

    Cable Modem and Router Questions

    I was thinking of building a pfsense box to start. I was looking at ubiquity until I started reading this subforum a week or so ago. The cloud stuff bothers me and so does how they treat their base. Right now I am researching everything. Part of me says screw it and do what I have always...

    Cable Modem and Router Questions

    I am in the camp of buy your own separate units. For modems Motorola has served me well. However see what’s available to use on the approved modem list from your provider. Read some reviews. Know some are going to be bogus in that people mark down for shipping (as an example) when it has...

    How Bad is Comcast in 2021?

    Ahh got it. Combination modem and WiFi router. My preference is never combining the two functions. My Motorola modem has been rock solid and never had an issue.

    Being creative in how we word things. I'd like to see that to believe it. Now I believe it is automated in a sense, but I also willing to bet there is human interaction at some point in that process. From either orders, ordering material, repairs on machines, to research and development, etc...

    When we get there let us know because we are a long way off. The salient point you are choosing to ignore. I seen many a piece of automation go in place at the factory that employees me. What I haven’t seen is full automation anywhere. Despite this being a concern when I started there back...

    Right to repair executive order

    Exactly have watched many a YouTube video. Some you discount because their shills but others have been great. Seem some good stuff linked in the cars subforum. Working in quality as my profession I know that just because the OEN says it’s good doesn’t mean it is. We make things to make a...

    Right to repair executive order

    Interesting higher cost equates to better. I should always use the filter Toyota recommends at service because it costs 60 verses at autozone where it costs 18. If in fact you’re stating quality you have to determine what quality is. Not through price, but through why it is better verses the...

    Robots running a grocery store

    In either event you have to go through a line or station and check out your items. So either your wasting time standing around or you’re saving a bit by doing it yourself. Most people can check faster than cashiers. But usually their prepared. Meaning they have items grouped. And they...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    I was going to say I have never been forced to teams or Skype. Ever. I find that interesting. Even in my office environment at work I have never once been forced to either. So that’s a curious complaint. I do get there’s a problem with your account BS from MS. But it doesn’t force me to...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Apparently there seems to this disconnect that people want to go backwards instead of forwards. If you had a few buttons clicks for an install and 99 percent of the time it magically works, what’s the compelling argument to change? It’s not that hard? It’s like this other OS? But is not the...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    A lot if the OS is better. The problem all around is MS is the standard. Gaming = better Installation of programs = better Office productivity = better When Linux make installation of everything easier. Then they will take a giant step forward. It’s probably better than when I tried it...

    WD My Book NAS are being remotely wiped

    Most can’t tell you what public facing is. People buy things with this expectation that it will be secure and great and never require you to do anything till it dies. I think another user said “appliance” and that fits. By the time people understand cyber security they will be old and out...

    Forcing people to online cloud based accounts is management of the OS. If doesn’t define the OS other than politics for or against it. So you disagree with screen space usage? So how they choose to group things defines a desktop OS? Sounds like you can’t distinguish between your personal pet...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    All the tpm nonsense. What’s the fallback plan? they totally shut off windows 10 and brick your computer? Highly unlikely. So if you can’t upgrade the worse is you’re stuck on W10 because you didn’t like W11 anyways? Am I missing something?

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    I think you’re a bit off here. MS charge for win 11? People pay for what’s easy. Oh have to upgrade a computer? OS isn’t what prohibits them. Oh it comes with Win11? Yep they paid for it. Oh you’re an enthusiast? Gotta have it. When you’re forced or believe you need it. You will...

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    It makes sense. Optimize for laptop it will run on the desktop. And there’s many of us laptop users out there. For example where I work the majority are on laptops and have docking stations in our offices. Many of us work from home and from the office. I wonder if that’s a big segment? So...

    Intel CEO: Most People Only Replace A PC After 5-6 Years

    The reason we don’t upgrade is performance verses cost. If I get 10-20 percent increase, which really comes out to be very little actual observed speed improvement for a full system price… then why am I inclined to upgrade? Why replace what isn’t broke? This is also why I would consider AMD...

    Activision Blizzard CEO To Get Even Bigger Bonuses...

    The point that I think was missed is everyone sees value differently. They can give x in their own type of cash or nothing. I suppose the person is free to not use it. You see value in a phone service because you use it. They see value in their form of cash because people use it. A company...

    This is where opinions will differ. There’s greed in everything. Employees are greedy, management (different tier employees are greedy) and of course shareholders are greedy. I don’t subscribe to limitation of wealth. And that’s what you are saying by it’s bad to be greedy. I work in the...
