Re: Extending Wi-fi

Presumably nothing bad will happen, they just won't play nicely? And if it is the same I'll be able to access the new wifi router and change it''s IP address so the existing modem router can then talk to it? Stating the obvious, just make sure you set it to DHCP or if you want it to have a static a...

Re: Extending Wi-fi

Without more research, I couldn't say for certain, but it should be fine as long it's on your subnet.

Re: Extending Wi-fi

A router doesn't assign IP addresses - the DHCP server does that... and it typically (but not necessarily) runs on the router box (which is normally just a small embedded Linux server). A distinct wireless router shouldn't get involved in the assignment of IP addresses. Interestingly it has a WAN po...

Re: Extending Wi-fi

Thanks ed, that looks a good option. £60 now if I've got the right one. I"d need to stop my Plusnet modem router doing the routing somehow, presume this is easy enough in the configuration somewhere? Looks like it just does WiFi, so I'd leave your Plusnet jobbie alone - it should be fine as is once...

Re: Extending Wi-fi

Sticking something in the loft may or may not work - a lot of recent plasterboard has a metal vapour barrier on the back which effectively blocks 2G and to a greater extent 5G WiFi. What you need is a cheap/free WiFi monitor tool on your phone (lots around), then stick your AP in the loft or whereve...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

We have a friend who is a local retained firefighter... he says their worst worry is being called to an EV crash - although the vehicles have a "kill" switch for the power, if the pack itself is compromised then the situation can be very very dangerous - far more so, he says, than with petrol.

Re: what are you doing ?

Being a bit bored I plugged in my Ubuntu hard drive to check for updates. Seems there is a new version, 20.04 called Focal Fossa. Downloading and installing as I type, on no 1 spare computer (PC). 20.04 is an LTS release which is probably best for general use at the moment. 20.10 ("Groovy Gorilla")...

Re: what are you doing ?

Sheeting down with rain, so doing studwork for sauna internals today... Doesn't look much at the moment, but peeing with rain outside and solid dry inside. 20 bits of CLS studding - untreated timber as you can't use treated timber in a sauna structure. Subfloor of 18mm hardwood WPB screwed on a 20cm...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

I'm 6' 4" and there are precious few sports cars I can drive.

A good mate had a Caterham 7 (Lotus 7) which I helped him build.

I couldn't even get my legs fully into the driver's footwell.

The only Caterham folk my size can get in is the SV.
