Vonets mini 300 wifi bridge/repeater - continued

Posted 04-18-2015 at 12:54 PM by WestCoastSunset

After having used this for awhile, I had to shut it down as it was causing interference with my wifi network at home. Browsing would freeze as though the computer was not connected to a network. After turning off the vonets device, we have had no more problems. I really only wanted it for its wifi bridge function. I am going to try using it with a different ssid for its repeat function and just never connect to that. If there is a way to shut down the repeater function, and just use it as a bridge,...

Vonets mini 300 wifi bridge/repeater

Posted 03-04-2015 at 03:57 PM by WestCoastSunset

I recently purchased one of these for my magic jack. I won't bore you with alot of unnecessary details. First, this is a small device, smaller than a credit card.

I initially had some trouble with it and thought it was defective, until I figured out, that YOU MUST USE INTERNET EXPLORER FOR CONFIGURATION. Any attempt to use another browser will lead you to believe it is configured properly, but it will not work, thus making you believe the unit is defective when it is not.

home network topology

Posted 02-15-2015 at 11:54 AM by WestCoastSunset

Because of additions to the home network, I have been recently thinking of expanding the home network using a wifi extender of some sort. Of course before I do anything I want to consider what would accomplish my goals with the least amount of money invested. This is what we have:

* 3 laptops (2 linux debian (1 not used much) and 1 windows metro) 2 of which are ibm t410s and 1 toshiba satelite (the one not in much use)

* 1 older printer that connects via ethernet cable...

I've been meaning to post this for awhile now. I have an android Galaxy s Blaze. After the first couple of months of use, I started to have to recharge my phone during the day, even though I left my house with a full charge. I didn't think too much of it, I just figured that the battery was finally broken in. Anyway, A few weeks ago, I updated my ad blocker (adaway). I hadn't updated it in a while and I had only installed it a few months before (I've had this phone since 2013). Color me surprised...

My new laptop

I just bought a lenovo t410 off of ebay. I think it was used overseas or in Canada, as it has a wimax card and wimax is not very huge in the U.S. (the big isps need to squeeze as much money as possible out of us after all). Anyway, I had an old toshiba satelite p4 (3.2ghz I believe) that I had to put linux on as windows XP ran the fans underneath constantly (fans underneath!? This is what caused the overheat problems on many toshiba models. The brand now goes into my do not buy category along with...
