  1. WiFi extension

    I bought one of these: https://www.novatech.co.uk/products/asus-rt-ac87u-dual-band-wireless-ac2400-gigabit-router/90ig00w0-bu2g00.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInabaxeG22AIVSrftCh3NSwCcEAQYBSABEgImMPD_BwE Same as MrMe. Works well and have seen over 200mbps on wifi. I don’t bother with the Virgin router in modem mode as the service always seemed to go wrong when I did it.

    You can skip the first 90 mins is what I found out.

    The motorcycle chap being second ... that was a surprise!
  4. The £1k mobile phone

    So what happens when some chav smacks me over the head for the phone and uses by stricken face to open it and order a million nappies or lightbulbs from Amazon?
  5. The £1k mobile phone

    Doesn’t happen each time incidentally.
  6. The £1k mobile phone

    Not bothered with face ID. Don’t trust it! Odd perhaps, but there we go!
  7. The £1k mobile phone

    Right, so predictably I bought a 256gb X. Does anyone have the annoyance that when swiping up to enter the pin code you get the spinning wheel thing then it returns you to the lock screen?

    Joshua for my vote. Hope he gives Lewis a smack on the way to collect it.
  9. Boxing thread

    Yes, I keep watching his analysis of the fight over and over. Love it. The way he talks about it is fantastic. I hope he continues his great sucess. How will he fare against Wilder? I’m not generally a follower of boxing but I follow AJ avidly.
  10. Aren’t they based on another manufacturer’s chassis?
  11. 9 seconds quicker than the Bug! Love it. Prob couldn’t drive it!
  12. Boxing thread

    Anthony Joshua. What a cracking bloke. Seen two things with him in recently with Bear G and also the BBC Fight of my Life prog; he is funny, down to earth and has exactly the sort of attitude that all sportspeople should exude. SPOTY vote secured from me.
  13. WiFi extension

    Who on earth do you use to get 500mbps? Do you have a direct T1 pipe?!
  14. WiFi extension

    It is amazing just how shite the BT and Virgin boxes are at broadcasting WiFi at speed. Mind you, Virgin have been having problems today due to “congestion on the line”. Engineer arriving on Weds to presumably sweep the congesters off the line ... Call centre lady tried to suggest it was the new router, I told her the wired gadgets (Sonos and Time Capsule) said otherwise. She shut up.
  15. WiFi extension

    Installed the same Asus router MrMe has and the difference is remarkable. Ok, it was £170 odd quid but on the 5G connection the top room is getting 170mbps. And no need for a wifi extender either. Very pleased, thanks everyone for your comments on this.
