@JANORTS You should get a little more info, do a bit of research, and maybe post a question on the main site :))))))))))))))))))))))))
 
@Bob Hmmm. Interesting. I haven't needed it yet, but might come in handy in the future.

9:26 AM
Does system restore ever fix anything
I always considered it to be a waste of time

@Ave no
@vbnm the dude who runs it kinda dosen't run it any more.
@Ave I have heard stories :D
Its a little like winning a lottery ticket, or getting a 3080 :D

@Ave I never had it fix a problem. But it should work for at least some people
@JourneymanGeek with T+13days. "@Hennes wait...real USB display cards exist? (outside displaylink...) "

I think I have one. At least it was from before I ever heard of display link, it is not small and it gets hot.
And it never worked well. Freezes. Artifact when you rotated to portait mode etc
Last time I had that was a loose SSD. (as well as random crashes).
Time before that was my mothers laptop. Repairing itself on startup, then that screen. It finally worked around the 51th reboot and repair action

what kind of upload speed is tp-link.com/uk/home-networking/adapter/tl-wdn3200 capable of?
 
9:21 PM
USB-2 interface
So less then 480mbit/sec
or from the webpage you linked to ", users will have super fast 300Mbps wireless speeds "
 
802.11n. You're probably going to get something like 150 Mbps on the 5 GHz band.
Upload and download speeds are usually the same. It's not asymmetric the way an Internet connection often is, it's a wireless LAN connection.
 
Nice naming though N600.... certainly hints to the user at 600MBit
Marketing at its best
 
Technically because it's a dual-band device. 802.11n allows up to 300 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 300 Mbps on 5 GHz, hence N600. This is an accurate, but theoretical value for a router where you could have multiple clients using either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band, but a single client can't use both at the same time.
It doesn't reflect real-world speeds. It only represents the theoretical bandwidth possible with all of the bands supported on the device.
 
When I need a similar card I tened to use a tplink AC1900.
Used, since both the laptop which was having range issue, as well as the wireless NIC in it have since been replaced
I never figure out how to use them except with the laptop on a stable table though. Large external, directly plugged in USB devices are not ideal
 
9:37 PM
I've got a NETGEAR R7800 (AC2600) hereā€”it does 802.11ac Wave 2, 4x4:4 MU-MIMO. A mesh extender (EX7500) was later added to get better performance towards the back of the house.
The router has been in use for four full years and continues to deliver excellent performance and very little in the way of problems.
I know it's just about time to upgrade to 802.11ax but I'm not 100% sure the technology is mature, it's still very expensive, and only two devices in the house (my phone and ThinkPad) support it.
And there is little benefit to upgrading beyond an already fast 802.11ac router when the underlying Internet connection is 200 Mbps (typical speeds 220-240 Mbps).
Had the connection been 400 Mbps or faster, I would seriously consider upgrading.
 
I am on wire (classic gibabit to the router and from there via gigabit to the internet (750mbit fibre)
NO need for anything faster
 
I can reliably saturate the Internet connection over Wi-Fi in most places at home I work in, so there's essentially no benefit. My desktop is connected via Wi-Fi and it's not often I've felt a need for Ethernet.
 
On the lapotp I care more about stability than speed
and 3 years ago I had 74 (!) 2.4GHz devices in detection range (multiple flats nearby)
so 5GHz band is a need. other than that. Mostly 'meh'.
I mostly selected the AC1900 for its large and movable entenna
 
Of course, Ethernet is ideal, but it's really inconvenient to run Ethernet cables across stories and we never did get network cabling installed in the wall.
 
Aye
MY work desk is 3 maters from the point where the optic cable enters the appartment hough
In that regard I am luckly
 
10:44 PM
google speed test, is google taking the piss describing this as fast i.imgur.com/WpSGDkN.png
0.18Mbps upload
 
10:59 PM
@barlop lol. I'm getting Download Mbps 8.03 Upload Mbps 1.72 from my mobile :)
 
11:50 PM
@barlop thats faster than what i get
