I already tried changing the time on the laptop and on my phone, and I'm about to try to change the timezone, but it didn't work. if anyone could please help me to connect my phone back to my wifi (in a way that my dad won't be able to tell would be amazing) I'd so greatly appreciate it. thank you.

    I have a Windows 10 PC for 3 years now and my only concern is its connection to the wifi. My computer is intermittently disconnecting itself from the WiFi saying "no access" with and "!" beside the taskbar icon. This happens every few hours, in the middle of browsing, video, gaming etc. Then shortly after, it creates a buzzing sound. The connection does not slow down regardless of how many devices are connected. It just stops connecting immediately. The way I fix it is either I restart the computer, disable/enable through device manager or turn the wifi on/off in networking. It is becoming a nuisance and has been interfering with my work. I do not restart the router since I observed that I think its the computer that has the problem not the router, since other devices within the household (ipads/phones/other laptops/netflix etc.) is connecting well without any interruptions. It is only my PC that experiences it. I need help to understand the source of the problem, doing quick fixes will not get me anywhere. Thank you.

  • Bandwidth vs Latency?

    Best answer: Latency is ping, just a call and response from another server somewhere.

    Best answer: Latency is ping, just a call and response from another server somewhere. The number is the amount of time it took for that message to travel and get sent back, measured in milliseconds

    Bandwidth is how much information can be crammed down the pipeline at the same time. You can have enormous bandwidth, but it still takes all that data a few milliseconds to travel to and from places.

    In first person shooter games like counter strike, your latency or ping is much more important than your bandwidth. You can get an edge on multiplayer gameplay by having a faster response time, whereas for bandwidth it doesn't matter if you can transfer at 20Mbps or 1Gbps, because the game won't use it all anyway.

  • Is WiFi (WPA2) really safe?

    Best answer: Use WPA2 - PSK with AES encryption and a long, strong password. Secondly implement MAC address validation and permit on your wireless ONLY those devices which have their MAC address entered in the wireless access point's MAC address validation table. This means you must go to the devices you wish to permit on your network, obtain their network MAC address, record them in a table for future reference (note the MAC address and the device to which it pertains) and enter the MAC address in the wireless access point Validation Table. This requires any device that wishes to be admitted to both have the strong password AND that the device's MAC address be in your validation table. If the device is lost, retired, or stolen you then delete the MAC address from the wireless access point validation table and anyone who has the device cannot be admitted to your wireless network even though he has the password.

    Dumb question, I know. But my apartment complex pays for internet and there is an ethernet jack in the wall and when I take an ethernet cable and plug it into my laptop, internet works fine. But I have multiple laptops, tablets, phones etc that I need to connect to. When I take the same ethernet cable and plug it into a router, I get nothing. I assume I can t plug straight into the router, so I need a modem, right? So it s not a DSL connection and it s not a cable connection, is there not one I can just plug an ethernet cable into and go?

  • Why do we still use LAN, when VPN is available at a very low price?

    Best answer: If you do not have a LAN (Local Area Network), then you can have only one device using your Internet connection (WAN). If you are accessing other machines within your home network, you do not normally want the overheads of encryption using a VPN, but you do need a Local Area Network (Ethernet and/or WiFi).

    Best answer: If you do not have a LAN (Local Area Network), then you can have only one device using your Internet connection (WAN).

    If you are accessing other machines within your home network, you do not normally want the overheads of encryption using a VPN, but you do need a Local Area Network (Ethernet and/or WiFi).

    There are a number of VPN applications that are available for free. If you want to communicate over the Internet or over open (unencrypted) WiFi with a friend, providing you are both running compatible VPN software, then the link between the two machines is encrypted and secure. A VPN simply extends one network privately and securely across another network (LAN or WAN) to another network. There is no reason to pay for a VPN itself with free version available.

    However, when most people talk about a VPN, they are using a VPN to a Proxy Server, which hides their true IP address for an ongoing connection to the actual site they wish to be connected to. In these case, the VPN only protects the link to the proxy server. The link from the proxy server to the final site is not protected by the VPN. Somebody has to pay for the proxy service either through a subscription to the service or through advertising. If the proxy service is very cheap or free, then it might be because they are harvesting information from those using the service.

    If you have a router, then you have a LAN.

    Collar or harness, then a lead as well, preferably leather unless you suspect it might chew through it, chains are usually chokers for training or control.
    An old mate of mine who worked for the RSPCA part time used an old leather carthorse rein from my granddads farm on his rescue bulldog, which was very strong, as a lead for it and it survived it, mind you it was very old , full of dubbin and probably tasted awful to the dog.
    Regards, Bob UK.
    Glad to have been of assistance.

  • Why is my WiFi so slow?

    When we moved in here 3 years ago there was never a problem but now over the passed 3 months it has been so slow we can’t do anything that requires WiFi. We got a new modem from our provider do you think we should get a new router and modem to fix this problem?

    I am getting the 75mbps download speed consistently to about 80 without problem, however only about 4mbps upload. Provider is Frontier which used to be Verizon. They are coming out in a couple days but something is not adding up. The plan I have is the 75/75 and they claim that I should be close to that and downloading I am right at 75. Uploads are 4. I am using an ethernet cable on a laptop and tried it on another laptop with the same speedtest results. Turned modem off and on a few times, called Frontier to have them do settings, can't figure it out. Must be a line or a hardware connection because I have tried everything!
