    Budget 21-30k General purpose home laptop

    Should have Windows and MS Office. Mostly Word and Powerpoint. No other major requirements. Maybe decent battery backup and no need for a porter to carry it around :) Not sure if AMD would give far better VFM than Intel but the person who requires it is a doctor in Goa and is not a techie...

    PC Peripherals Router firmware updating

    thanks @huskyhunter and @k_m_Arya I did not find v4.23 and v4.24 at first because it showed up much lower in the list for me. I will look into this once the lockdown is lifted. I cannot afford to screw up the router while I am working from home and cannot buy a replacement urgently.

    PC Peripherals Router firmware updating

    I took a look at the OpenWRT hardware support list. My router hardware version is v4.24 and for some reason, the list has v4.20, 21 -- v4.28 but v4.23 and v4.24 are missing. Any idea why? Does it mean there is no compatible version for my router? I look at the warning that 4MB/32MB is not...

    PC Peripherals Router firmware updating

    Thanks for your responses. I will look at OpenWRT after the lockdown is lifted. What will happen to all my settings when I update the firmware? Will everything be like factory reset or does everything need to be reconfigured?

    PC Peripherals Router firmware updating

    My router versions are: Firmware Version: 3.16.3 Build 130104 Rel.55864n Hardware Version: WR740N v4.24 I will not try anything risky during the lockdown. I cannot afford the router to break as I am dependent on it to work from home. What benefits will flashing 3rd party firmware give me?

    PC Peripherals Router firmware updating

    Thanks for your response. One of the 3 updates has the comment, "Improved wireless performance and fix some minor problem." but my main reason for updating is because they have fixed some security issues. Sorry for the confusion. The last part of my post was basically asking if a newer router...

    PC Peripherals Router firmware updating

    I have a TP-Link WR740N, which I have been using for several years. I just realized that it is running a rather old firmware from 2013. The maker's website shows there are 3 updates since then. They are from 2013, 2014 and 2015. Do I have to install each update in sequence or do I just install...
