    Starlink (Generation 2) testing

    I don't think the ethernet adapter is going to change how the public side works. I'm thinking that most of the difference on what people are getting is probably going to be where they hit down links - but I've done zero looking into starlink as I live in pretty populated areas and hoping to...

    Really newbie question, when my AT&T router is unplugged, whole home network goes down

    Can you make us a diagram of how your devices are physically connected?

    Entering Passwords Physically and Programmatically?

    Yep! I was thinking at the same time that if you're using a newer windows then you might be able to use windows hello, but I don't know if anything but windows hello for business works. No idea about a personal version and it required a TPM

    Starlink (Generation 2) testing

    Thanks for the write up! I'll keep following this. I think the CGNAT issue isn't going to go away unless they switch to IPV6.

    Entering Passwords Physically and Programmatically?

    Use MFA/2FA, not with your phone. That's the only way so far. Also try better AV Kaspersky has a free version https://usa.kaspersky.com/free-antivirus There are of course others but I've used their older free and their enterprise and I like it.

    10 Gbps from the pole, how do I effectively do this?

    That's the second part of one of the huge reasons I want to stay away from Comcast. I've got no data caps. Even with my frustrated issues, I can still push push 20GB to and from work in a few mintues. If I was at full speed, busy and not paying attention, I could easily hit that cap. Second...

    Really newbie question, when my AT&T router is unplugged, whole home network goes down

    You should be able to connect to other things, even if the AT&T router is doing DHCP, as long as the clients didn't lose connection. Wireless is the same but it's so easy for those devices to drop and reconnect. So If your AT&T box is connected to a switch and everything else is on that...

    Multi-Thread Bandwidth Test Slower than Single-Thread?

    I've not done too much with direct settings like this, mostly setting the channel width, and power, but the last was for vastly different situations. If you you're saying: ISP <wireless> 6.5MBps ISP < wired > Edmax <wireless> 10.5 MBs ISP < wireless > Edmax <wireless > 2.5 Well your problem...

    10 Gbps from the pole, how do I effectively do this?

    Thanks for the reply and the other stuff, I really do appreciate it. I live near Chicago so we're not slouching on the food lol. Around where I live and also where I work, it's not green field so Comcast isn't thinking of residential fiber, we have their business fiber though. No idea why one...

    10 Gbps from the pole, how do I effectively do this?

    May I ask where in the world you are and maybe the ISP just so I can look and be jealous? I have 1Gbps but hot darn! First let me say that in my limited work, Fiber is not like ethernet. My Fiber is different that what I'm use to. It's an LC connector but single, I'm use to dual. Also the...

    Multi-Thread Bandwidth Test Slower than Single-Thread?

    Okay, seeing your other post. If you can wire things, why not go that route? Even if you aren't using any kind of advanced setup I'd go that route ISP <-->Edmax | |<--> Repeater (if needed) Connect a lan port of the router to a lan port of the Edmax/Repeater, turn off DHCP on those last...

    Multi-Thread Bandwidth Test Slower than Single-Thread?

    Seems like maybe your wireless "backhaul" is working fine but maybe the wireless on your phone isn't? The TP link and the repeater seem to be close to each other and the way it's drawn they both connect directly back to the ISP modem. Is there a need for the TP link one?

    Multi-Thread Bandwidth Test Slower than Single-Thread?

    Sorry I didn't get notices for these updates like SamirD said it all counts. Think of it like sound, say you're in the gym, and they are playing music but you've got headphones on listening to your own music. You can still hear theirs but what's on your headphones drowns them out may not hear...

    What do I need to know about BitLocker?

    I guess I used too many words.

    What do I need to know about BitLocker?

    Your question makes me thing you aren't understand what bitlocker does and that's why I tried to explain it. Wait! I wrote out all the stuff so I'm going to leave it but I think you're asking what do the different icon mean? Here is a blog with a table and links with more info...
