    15" external display with more pixels is blurrier than my 15" MBP retina

    thanks but it didn't work. holding down option and pressing scaled didn't show any new options it seems like this wouldn't be hard to do in 3rd party software....since the scaling has already been done for the built in retina display. im basically asking mac to treat my external monitor as a...

    15" external display with more pixels is blurrier than my 15" MBP retina

    My 15" portable display has a resolution of 3200x1800, which is more than my 15" MBP 2017 v12.4 Monterey running 2880x1800. So my external display should look just as awesome if not better correct? Nope. It's blurry or very tiny. In my Display system preferences, when selecting the external...

    I find my internet problems happen typically during a video call where latency is important. Loading Netflix (buffering), webpages and speedtest.net doesn't have any problems because those are not as time sensitive. Is there a way I can test my connection without having to setup my own fake...

    Any specific recommendations for a model and router that are compatible? I'm browsing this site: https://www.ui.com/products/#default With my current setup I also find that my WiFI speeds drop about 50-75% by the time they reach my bedroom so I have a Netgear extender in the bedroom to help...

    Internet tends to slow after a while, requiring a reboot

    So my Xfinity internet max speeds are plenty high, but often it slows to a crawl or is easily interrupted making video calls impossible. I find that a reboot of my router is enough to bring everything back to full speed, but this happens often. For best performance I find a daily reboot is...
