I have a Hikvision security camera by entrance door that is bothering me for a while. Those dome cameras have a poor Wifi antenna. Wifi nearby isn't that bad.
So, I am thinking to get an extender. All I need is basic 2.4Ghz for this camera. My other constraint is size. The device needs to plug...
I run into an issue with "file history" which caused me to look into backup settings. The whole system was on autopilot backing up though file history to a network drive.
It looks like I have two options to do backup in Windows 11?
1.) Windows 7 backup
2.) File history.
Is this correct? (I...
So, I got the TPLink RE450. However, I am not sure whether it is going to work.
It has actually only two modes:
- extender (which I don't need/want)
- AP (as converting a Ethernet to Wifi)
I am looking for converting Wifi to Ethernet for a client. Or am I missing something?
Indeed. Thanks for pointing out the Ethernet port "limitation".
I looked at RE315
both with 100Mbs port. As much as I like to have 1GBps I am not sure whether this really limits anything?
I am looking for a WiFi Ethernet adapter. I also look for 5Ghz support. Can somebody recommend a device for this application?
Would this TP-Link, the TL-WR902AC work?
just came across a Brosnet, but not sure I...
thanks. this seems like a quality product. Can I also run this driver-less?

I am using a Belkin KVM for years. I recently decided to route audio to my speaker though it. However, this introduced noise/hum. Tried several things, including getting a ground loop idolator for the audio going from KVM to speaker. However, this didn't fix anything.
After testing various...

I need to upgrade my current Motorola SB6120 cable modem which has been great, but is limiting my speed now.
I want to buy and not to rent.
Since I appear to keep my HW for a long time I am assuming it is good to choose a DOCSIS 3.1.
It needs to be a Comcast approved modem. What should I pick...

Can I use a Dell u2717d monitor ( 2560x1440 ) as a roku display (with stick)?
The Dell has a HDMI port so I figure I can stick in Roku stick.
But how about audio? For example if I like to use a Bluetooth headset? The Roku stick does not support. But could I get some sort of USB stick on the...
To keep my travel light I like to use my new Ipad charger to charge both my phone and ipad when traveling. The new ipad charger has one USB-C port. Can I get an "splitter" cable to charge both one USB-C device and one lighting device? I was abel to find a regular USB splitter cable but not USB-C...

I have been nursing an old Gateway Boston 2.1 speaker system.
I like to upgrade to a simple stereo desktop speaker set.
- wired input (no Bluetooth necessary - realize most will come with it)
- above average sound
- auto standby - or low standby power when no sound detected.
Also, are the core components such as motherboard the same for all XPS desktop? i.e. if I choose Intel UHD Graphics rather than a card will it be the same PC?
Just wondering as I can to my desired configuration different ways.
I like to upgrade my Dell XPS 9100 to a new one. My desktop is not used for gaming, just a general home PC for editing, office work. However, I like to get a currnet high-end PC as I keep the PC's for a long time.

I do understand that switch with integrated PSU will run hotter. But I don't understand why the Unifi is reported running that hot even at idle.
The 60W Unifi would be a reasonable choice. I am still pursuing the clean look of an integrated power supply. Might be a trade off.
Do Netgear's run hot as well? I just noticed that the GS510TP actually has a fan (which I am trying to avoid).
I need to upgrade my 8 port switch to power two POE AP's. I don't wnat to use the injectors.
POE (I think my AP's have 7.5W max; might want to plug-in a camera down to road)
I like the clean installation of not needing a power supply.
I always like to ground...

I don't want to say budget is no objective, but ergonomics rank high.
Do all the mechanical keyboards have the same "key stroke travel depth"? I would prefer a keyboard that doesn't require to push the buttons far.
I need a keyboard that is a bit shorter for a keyboard tray application that I obtained for ergonomics.
I found that a regular keyboard is too wide. There is a lot of dead space that I never use (number block).
Ideally, I prefer wired keyboards.
Doing a search on Amazon I found a couple of...
