re: Kindle e readers...is the oasis worth the extra price? - gpburdell
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: basic PoE AP - gpburdell
[quote]It never works as you expect. Your device will stay connected to the original AP until there is almost zero signal.[/quote] I'm only familiar with UniFi APs which I have 4x AC-IW and one AC-LR covering my house. I have configured them so they will kick a device whose signal (RSSI) is wors...

re: Disney+ causing my Firestick 4k to freeze up - gpburdell
Try reinstalling the app. If that doesn't work, another option is to factory reset the Firestick. I had to do that once, when mine ran out of space and uninstalling apps did not help....

re: Unifi Protect security cameras - gpburdell
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...

re: What's the go-to wifi connected thermostat these days? - gpburdell
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...

re: Thermostat WiFi Help - gpburdell
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....

re: Thermostat WiFi Help - gpburdell
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....

[quote]I just dont get it.[/quote] Favreau and Filoni are Star Wars fans and know the source material especially Filoni. They're like Kevin Feige and Marvel. Hopefully Kennedy gets the boot and they let Favreau/Filoni take over. I remember the quote from Kennedy about there not being books or...
