re: Kindle e readers...is the oasis worth the extra price? - gpburdell on 1/13/21 at 11:05 pm
I have one and love it. I read almost every day so the premium is worth it imo. It's easier to hold and turn pages with one hand. Also I really like that the LED can do a warm white color for reading at night or in the dark. ...

re: Disney+ causing my Firestick 4k to freeze up - gpburdell on 1/5/21 at 12:35 am

re: Unifi Protect security cameras - gpburdell on 12/31/20 at 12:28 pm
I haven't bought any UniFi cameras yet but I'm planning to. I'm planning to buy a couple of the G4 bullets, G4 dome, doorbell and assuming a G4 Flex is coming soon. My only issues is the UNVR won't fit in my network rack and I'm not keen on the Cloudkey Gen2+ to act as my NVR and I don't want a UDM...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: What's the go-to wifi connected thermostat these days? - gpburdell on 12/17/20 at 2:32 pm
I've got a 3rd gen Nest downstairs and a 4th gen Ecobee upstairs. Hardware wise the Nest just looks nicer with the metal ring which is available in different options. Also, it's easier and quicker to change the temperature with the Nest because of that ring than the Ecobee. Though it looks lik...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Thermostat WiFi Help - gpburdell on 11/22/20 at 12:39 am
I did a quick google. It looks like there should be an option for "20/40 MHz Coexistence" in the advanced settings and it should be enabled if you have legacy devices that don't support 40 Mhz....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Thermostat WiFi Help - gpburdell on 11/21/20 at 4:12 pm
Configure the Orbi so that the 2.4 signal is configured for 20 Mhz channels. 2.4 supports 40 Mhz channels which gives you faster speeds but many devices don't support that. Also, if the SSID is hidden make it visible. There is no security benefit in hiding it and some devices have issue with it....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
