    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...

    Lol okay you’re absolutely right. /sarcasm

    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...

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

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

    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...

    Thanks didn’t know this, mainly because my surfboard works so well I never think of it.
