I'm stuck with that firmware because Arris doesn't have any firmwares on their website, I can't find any way online on how to user update the firmware and Spectrum does...

    Windows 11 Pro for Workstations not available anymore?

    Windows 11 Pro for Workstations not available anymore?

    I installed Windows 11 Professional last time using the Windows 10 Professional product key, then installed Pro for Workstations via the MS app store, no fee charged because I had Windows 10 Pro for WS already. I don't see why it wouldn't work again.

    Windows 11 Pro for Workstations not available anymore?

    I had Windows 10 Professional, then upgraded to 10 Pro for Workstations via the MS store app, I paid for it.

    Steam Is Banning Sex Games with Young-Looking Characters

    Seems the laws and how they're enforced are different in Japan. Usually for hentai and hentai games, the girls are actually around 16 and 17 years old, but the age gets bumped up to at least 18 when it gets westernized.

    What's the largest consumer available SSD suitable to replace a storage HDD?

    New Ethernet Standard Brings 5x The Speed Without Disruptive Cable Changes

    Better to just get 10 GbE. It's been standardized for a while and already available. It IS expensive, no argument there, but it's one of the best options if you need to go faster than gigabit ethernet right now. My home network setup is 10 gigabit ethernet. I'm never going back.
