re: Netgear R7960P Nighthawk X6S AC3600 Connectivity Issue - gpburdell
You shouldn't have connected the Nighthawk to the base station. It's probably in bridge/AP mode now. Connect the Nighthawk directly and then you need to log in to it and go through the setup process. Fyi, that is not fiber you are connecting to the Apple or Nighthawk. There might be fiber ru...

re: Lost in Space S2 live on Netflix - gpburdell
Just finished the second season. I liked this season much more than the first. I'm glad they decided not to have the Robinsons alone by themselves like the original series. Looking forward to the next season....

re: WiFi Extender - gpburdell
[quote]It will be. So it is possible that it can work? Need to know before I build it[/quote] Possible sure. Powerline networking is dependent on the power lines in your house and it's possible there could be issues/interference with it working. I'd suggest buying a powerline kit from somewher...

re: Need help on my wifi speed - gpburdell
[quote]After that, I disconnected the laptop, plugged the Ethernet cable back into the modem, and then took my computer to the access point and plugged in via Ethernet into that unit and ran the speed test off of that. The highest I ever got was about 100 Mbps and a few times much less than that (30...

re: Was Star Wars always planned to be a trilogy/much larger story? - gpburdell
For those that are big Star Wars fans but haven't read any of the books. I highly recommend that you read the Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn. It is fantastic and they could have used this as the basis for a new set of movies along with several other books. Disney or even Lucas before just need...

[quote]I love the show and I believe it will get nothing but better each season.[/quote] Same. I'm hoping they have more tie ins to Rebels and Clone Wars. The Darksaber showing up at the end was amazing. Though if you haven't watched Clone Wars or Rebels; then you wouldn't realize what Gideon h...

re: The Witcher - Season 1 (Netflix) - gpburdell
Just finished the last episode. Overall I enjoyed it but was a tad disappointed as I had GoT expectations (excluding the last season). I never played the games or read the books but knew a little about The Witcher and had alot of questions. That's my biggest problem with the show is that it did...

re: Router/Mesh System Question - gpburdell
I don't use mesh as I have a wired multi AP setup. FWIW, if I was going to use mesh I'd go with Amplifi system as they are owned by Ubiquiti. I'm a big fan of Ubiquiti and upgraded my entire home network (router, switches, APs) to their gear. The google mesh is supposed to be good too but wou...

re: Why didn't SW use Yuuzan Vong or Thrawn storyline? - gpburdell
Could have introduced the Chiss as a new threat. Instead of Kylo Ren, they could have gone down the Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus story. They should have re-cast Luke, Leia, Han, Lando and gone forward with the Thrawn Triology. ...
