    if you want top end speeds, go up the line of these.

    So you think the one I posted is a good option, I’ll just need to see what comes with the monitor for the Lenovo and purchase one of those adapters for the MacBook?

    Similar request to AubCabs: I just bought a house and for the first time my router doesn’t reach everything. The router is at one end of the floor and the master bedroom is at the other end. The connection is bad. I bought a WI-FI extender () and it does an ok job, but not great. I also need it to reach the roof, but I don’t have an indoor outlet up there. What should I do?

    Additionally, my internet is supposed to be 300 mbps, but I appear to be capped at 92 according to my router, which is the same as what I was at my prior place. Is my google on hub limiting me? Should I get something different? I currently have 17 devices connected and will probably add a few more if that matters.

    I’ve used this for the past year and the coverage has been great. It was highly recommended at the time but a lot could change in a year with these kind of devices.

    I just have a simple tp-link m5 system since my issue wasn't so much size of house but the fact that my house is 157 years old and has plaster walls everywhere which wifi has plenty of issues passing through. It's generally considered the best budget mesh system



    The best overall system reviewed is normally the Nest wifi system.

    A range extender takes an existing network and then creates a new one so if you have a range extender you'll see your main router network and then a separate network for the range extender. Mesh systems create a complete network not separate from your router, all that changes is which access point your device is connecting to. If I'm closest to my router my device will connect to that. If I'm in my living room it'll connect to the access point there. And the biggest difference between them and extenders is that they have multiple frequencies which eliminates the speed issue that extenders have. So unlike an extender which can only send data to the route or receive data from your device at a time, the mesh network access point can use its 5 GHz to communicate with your device while its 2.4 GHz frequency can be communicating with the other access points or router.

    Imagine you’re 50 yards away from someone, an extender is basically a person standing in between and yells/repeats what each person says. A mesh system is more like you’re able to clone yourself and stand at the 25 and 0 yard marker. The mesh devices are designed to function as one cohesive unit.

    I’ve had one for almost four years and definitely will get another once it wears out. Besides the pockets being a little stretched it’s still in great shape.

    Yeah long story short it hands you off between access points as you move throughout your home. Traditional extenders don’t do that or you will drop data between handoffs which can impact performance. In most cases it won’t matter but say you’re on the phone, it will drop you.

    Also I think I’ve been on mesh for at least 5 years now. Back then I tried numerous wireless extenders and they were all shit. At this point they might be better. Also mesh is very much affordable now.

    This probably isn't the thread to ask but immediately ignoring that point:
    I'm trying to run internet from my main house to a detached garage apartment that's probably 30 ft away from the primary router. I have yet to install the mesh system I bought but I can try one of three things
    1. Place satellite node in apartment and see if signal and speed is sufficient . (Easiest option)
    2. Run Ethernet cable to satellite node. ( pia, but doable)
    3. Run Ethernet cable from new mesh system to router I'm currently using and have it act as a wired satellite node (I think that's how it can work) and just have the two wireless satellite nodes in the main house.
    Option 3 sounds like it might give the best coverage but I'm not sure if it actually works that way.

    Thoughts?

    Eero, Orbi and Google were all in the running (still are technically, I haven't opened it yet) but the Linksys had by far the biggest stated range of the choices at Best Buy and was a good price.

    I bought a shell 8 cordovan that was a 1 off and later a green Horween CXL. As long as i don’t put more than two cards per slot in the CXL I think it’ll last many more years. I ordered the shell 8 before no logo was an option so I stopped carrying it as soon as the green came in. Any time I switch to a different one I change back within two days.

    I am sure it’s been asked before but anyone got any good mask recommendations? Feels like every one I get is too small for my face and moves every time I talk. I ordered the Under Armour one but that’s on back order until who knows when.. I have the Adidas one with ear savers right now but that doesn’t fit well either. I don’t think I have an abnormally large face but I can’t seem to find one that is big enough.

    I will have to check them out. Under Armour posted a size chart of how to measure for a mask and that was the first I’ve seen of it. But that’s back ordered for who knows how long. Thanks.

    had my eye on these for a while, but they came out with a limited run of mexican ebony sautes and are donating a portion of the proceeds to charity so i went ahead and got some stuff - two large sautes, a scraper and spreader in ebony wood, a couple tasting spoons in jatoba and bloodwood, and some maintenance oil
