    Looking to replace R7000 for a wifi router with better range

    The house has only 1 plug point per room. So, if I have to connect another router or even move this router to the center of the house, I have to either get a power cable extender or run the ethernet cable all the way to the next room. Do you have any recommendations on DIY cable hiding methods...

    Looking to replace R7000 for a wifi router with better range

    I live in a 2 bed room 900 sqft house. My current router is a Netgear R7000. The router is located at one end of the house (cannot be moved since the internet optical fiber equipment is kept there). I get poor signal in one of the bed rooms and a bath room, and sometimes, no signal at all...

    Suggest a router

    I believe the problem is only for repeater mode. I haven't tried connecting with a cable though since the main router is in a different room.

    Suggest a router

    Sorry for the confusion. R7000 as a standalone router supports WPA2. The issue is when you are using two R7000s- one as router and the second as a wifi repeater. I have two R7000s. Due to range issues, I decided to use the second R7000 as a wifi repeater. In the official Netgear firmware, I...

    Suggest a router

    I am not sure if Netgear R7000 has good range compared to others. I have this router. Earlier I used to keep this in one room. If I sit in another room parallel to the first room (separated by a brick wall), there was no 5 ghz coverage. 2.4 ghz was not good enough either. I had to move the...

    What do you wear at home instead of pants?

    I am not a fan of underwears to be honest. They feel too restritive.

    What do you wear at home instead of pants?

    I grew up in a small town and didn't really bother about what to wear at home. Earlier, I just used to wear old nearly worn out pants. Recently, thought of moving to something better. I tried a couple of track pants. 2 of them bought for Rs. 500 each (from Big Bazaar) got damaged within 1-2...

    Please recommend a good container for storing non veg in freezer

    Thanks every one for your replies. I ended up getting one 0.8l and one 1.6l Borosil glass container from a local store. Using for the last 4 months without issues. This is the one I got: https://www.myborosil.com/square-dish-with-lid.html

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    My cable operator is charging 153.5 for the minimum 100 and also another 20 as service fee. They also said 2-3 weeks ago that there is a mandatory 30 rs STB maintenance contract fee, but looks like they later made it optional. NCF of 23.5 is in addition to this 153.5+20. I am keeping cable for...

    Please recommend a good container for storing non veg in freezer

    I am in the market for containers that can be used in refrigerator freezer for storing meat, fish and other non veg items. I liked the Tupperware Freezermate containers such as this 3.3l and this 650ml. But I am not sure if they are genuine since some of the comments say it may be fake. I looked...

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    The local cable guy came to my home finally. To get the minimum 100 channels, I need to pay 153.50 + 20. If I want to add even one more channel that cost just 0.50, I have to pay a NCF of 23.5. When asked why can't I add that channel in place of one from the 100, he said they cannot do it now...

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    Looks like this new rule will bankrupt cable operators. They are planning a nation wide strike on 24th by switching of signal. They say they need to charge minimum 180 from a customer to keep the business running (staff expenses, rent, electricity, cable etc). Now, if they charge 130 from...

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    Just received the new channel selection notice from my local operator. They added two new fees in addition to the minimum 153.40: a mandatory STB maintenance contract fee of 30 per month (that doesn't cover remote and physical damages) and a service fee of 20 per month. That makes the total...

    Swiggy executive refuses to deliver to marked location without valid address

    I had ordered a monitor from Amazon recently. Delivery guy asked me for the PIN and entered it in a handheld device I think before giving me the monitor. Its definitely a thing.

    What type of a monitor display is this?

    I took the monitor to LG service center. They said that it won't be covered under warranty since I removed it, and that it would cost 7000 to replace the display. Sure. Please feel free to post it there.
