  1. WiFi extension

    It's more than that but in principle, yes. The Asus router and software just has a lot more configuration options as well as a far superior strength and spread of signal. The software lets you assign traffic priority, monitor device and software use, even allows for 'beam forming' (the direction of the signal). I found the SuperHub 2 to be far superior to the SuperHub 3 but that is largely irrelevant when you consider what they are - cheap routers. They're never really going to compete with products from other manufacturers that provide software the likes of Virgin and BT never will.
  2. WiFi extension

    We went from Vivid 200 to HomeWorks+ 300. I changed to an excellent Asus router for better WiFi signal and it worked a treat. I then, this week, had network sockets installed in the office so could get every drop of download speed out of the service. I've just ran a few more tests and it is between 326 to 335mb consistently (hasn't dropped below that no matter which server I select for testing). I have plugged a Netgear switch into one of the patch sockets and will be attaching a WiFi Hotspot to that for upstairs, just so we get the maximum speed possible on the upper floor.

    To be fair to Oldham, even I'd not be so cruel as to suggest they're as disadvantaged as Scotland. Oldham would beat Scotland in a game of football. And I don't mean Oldham Athletic. I mean any 11 people plucked from the streets of Oldham, regardless of age. That said, they'd probably beat Oldham Athletic too.

    Over WiFi. That said, I've just (today) had network sockets installed in the office (at home) as part of an electrical project they've been here doing for 2 days. That means I have just registered a speed of 334mb in the office at the back of the house, on the upper floor, over the cable.
  5. I'd pick a Koenigsegg over any Bugatti. They're just gorgeous cars. That braking is quite spectacular too. He must have been having his inards rearranged.

    Virgin HomeWorks+ 300mb regularly gives us 320-330mbps. Like anyone else, they can have their moments of shitness but generally it has been incredibly reliable and very, very fast. It's that quick that I won't be posting this until 28 minutes into the future but you'll have already read it.

    You didn't happen to spot a yellow Vauxhall Corsa did you?

    I haven't a clue if you've been hacked. I'm not a fan of your choice of carpets though.

    Yep, ours power our 3 x Y-Cam's too. They've be flawless.

    Why would he support a team fighting for 3rd or 4th place?

    BT's powerline stuff isn't bad. It doesn't ever get near the rated 200/500mbps speeds they claim but we used them to power 3 x CCTV cameras because the of the ethernet sockets they have in them. They're a very simple and effective solution for that. The powerline options still usually deliver 12-30mb on even poor circuits, so that is more than enough to watch the likes of Netflix in rooms. However, we opted for an Asus router hooked up to our Virgin HomeWorks+ kit (still a SuperHub 3) to spread WiFi throughout the house. The office part of the house is on the upper/back of the house and the router is at the front/lower part. We get 200mb (of the 300mb available) compared to what was half the speed with just the SuperHub 3. We have split the network between 2G/5G and have 28 devices running off it now. The Asus router software is fantastic too. My advice would be to think about what you're going to use it for and not go over the top if you don't need ultra-fast WiFi.
  13. Uber lose Private Hire licence

    All the chatter from cab drivers I've spoken to for months has been about this. By that, I mean those in London or the south in general when I've flown or caught a train there. I have no doubt they'll all be celebrating tonight. I don't think the appeal will be as straight forward or successful as many people seem to think today. I can see the decision being upheld.

    I hear Klopp and Koeman were considering taking part in Celebrity Job Swap. Until they realised it would have a shit audience on Merseyside.
