Offline for a day - new router

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Wed Apr 25, 2018 3:37 pm

Hi all.

Aenea will be offline for a day as I figure out the configuration of my new home router. Old one couldn't keep up with a house that has a large number of "smart" devices. New one has a completely different admin setup that I need to play around with to configure first for the house, then for routing traffic to/from a NWN server.

Looks like I got it working again. Game on.

Tomorrow I see about opening up four laptops and swapping in upgraded wifi cards to use the new 5Ghz wireless channels.

Ugh. Depending on manufacuter, WiFi adapter installations can involve a lot of disassembly, require a high degree of precision/finess, sometimes exposuee of very fragile parts/connectors plus application of thermal compound. Hopefully you have goo instructions to follow for each unit. Go slow and err always on the side of caution.

Good luck  study Question Arrow Suspect Cool

We have four laptops in the house (mine, my wife's, and one for each of the older kids). Every single one is different, so four different disassemblies and internal layouts.

Turns out two of our four laptops in the house use mini PCIe cards (which I purchased four of), while the other two use a different card type (ngff or something like that)...so now I have to return two of the cards and get a pair of the newer type.

But hey, it's already spread out the load moving two laptops and two cell phones off the 2.4ghz signal onto the two 5 ghz signals.

New router comes with better parental controls, too, so that's another plus.

Nice. Glad you have your research done and are prepped for any struggles that may ensue. Hope you get the right parts soon, and the home network performance smooths out for you.
