Vonets mini 300 wifi bridge/repeater - part 3

Posted 08-14-2015 at 03:11 PM by WestCoastSunset

Well, after having used this device for a couple of months, I have discontinued using it. I have come to discover that using a wifi bridge with a cordless phone so I can use my magic jack was not working out too well. There was an annoying buzzing on the line when using the repeater that is not present when plugging the magic jack directly into the router.

ATX Bench power supply build

Been too long

Posted 08-10-2015 at 11:57 PM by zaivala

It has been so long I forgot I even *had* a blog here.

Welcome to another installment of "I don't know what I'm doing, and this is not how you do it anyhow."

That machine only ran Ubuntu for so long before I started beating my head (which had not yet absorbed enough) against walls and getting little help. Then a friend bought me a 64-bit Win7 Pro disk. I was running Lighthouse64 and Puppy on it from time to time.
