    Other Broken screen kindle paperwhite

    Yeah you just have a broken screen, that`s how it behaves. When my Kindle broke, i ordered a replacement screen from Aliexpress for around 1500rs and fixed it. But now that we cant purchase from aliexpress you could try dropping a mail to amazon and see what they can do.

    Passive Power Injector for Power-over-Ethernet

    It just adds power to the LAN port (the proper pins) that is all. I dont think it has anything to do with speeds, should work on all.

    APC UPS 600VA giving sudden beep.. Reason unknown.

    I have a similar model (BX 1100C IN), and i have noticed that it sometimes beeps and the power led turns red if there is too much noise in power. we have an old 2kva motor and this happens sometimes when i have them both connected to the same line/phase and turn on the motor. See if you have any...

    [Group Buy] Internet Download Manager - Pay before June 18

    Yeah, i have tried that. Very disappointing if you are used to IDM. The UI is a big mess IMHO!

    A little confused about how routers work.

    I don't think you need a second router, it will Double NAT, making it difficult to reach devices within your network. Might be better to just get a switch + access point. Access points can be expensive, so you can just get a second hand gigabit router (pretty decent ones in our sale threads) and...

    Personally I feel this is essential to be discussed here, since it potentially questions the genuineness of the product posted? Am i wrong?

    Installation of ONLY indoor unit as a Fan.

    I dont see why not, worst case you need to bypass a relay. But why would you want to do that? the air delivery is going to be pathetic, wouldn't you be better off putting a fan or something?

    Looking for a home UPS that is smart

    I couldnt get the app to see my zelio, i tried different phones, tried diff dns providers, i even tried reconnecting the battery, the damn thing didnt even blink. The 20 seconds press makes it blink for few seconds, but what the hell it is doing beyond blinking is anyone's guess. I started...

    Looking for a home UPS that is smart

    Guys, slightly off topic,sorry. but sice you all are here, i recently bought a zelio 1100i , have paired it with a new Exide el 150ah battery. The inverter keeps displaying 5 minutes to full charge and it appears to be charging and cutting off every 10 minutes or so based on the cooling fan...

    PureVPN for $1.32/mo on 5 Years Plan - Is it worth it?

    Lot of VPN sites say they dont keep logs, many have proven to be outright lying or dont mind sharing details about you to the authorities. Any one with basic knowledge can rent a server and set up a VPN server, so there are lot of shady providers. If you want the cheapest stuff then you can just...

    PureVPN for $1.32/mo on 5 Years Plan - Is it worth it?

    I would recommend Mullvad. Any VPN provider who uses OpenVpn should be configurable on the router, provided your router model supports it. Basic routers dont. Mullvad provides both Wireguard and OpenVpn if i remember correctly.

    PureVPN for $1.32/mo on 5 Years Plan - Is it worth it?

    If you are going to use VPN for want of privacy, i would recommend staying away from PureVpn or Nord. If you just want to hide from your ISP then it might be OK. Do a speed test with the services you would use before you commit for 5 years.
