Re: SLOB project

I'd say go for it Ray, I currently have something similar and it's the best sound I've had at home. I use the GM70 SET with the Fostex wideband drivers using only the mechanical roll off of the small baffle. Measurements suggest it falls off slowly below 250Hz. I roll the bass off in the amp at 100H...

Re: Sars-Cov-2 stuff

Sorry to hear that Mark. I lost a colleague 3 weeks in to lockdown in April, it certainly rocked us all and made us very wary of Covid 19.

Re: General health matters.

Cutting down on a lot of carbs (they turn to sugar), avoid added sugar and any foods with more than 5% sugar content, and eating sensible amounts of good fats (extra virgin olive oil and butter) as they fill you up longer than carbs worked wonders for me. Cut my blood sugar from the verge of full di...

Re: Extending Wi-fi

Thanks Nick, I understand that now. Despite the problems I had logging in to the WiFi router it was pretty much plug and play, configuring of SSIDs aside.

Whenever a need to chuckle... very clever lyrics with a dead-pan presentation...

Can't beat a bit of Jake, so many clever songs.

Useless fact of the day - my old structural design lecturer was a folk singer in the 70s and used to do this very song!

Re: Extending Wi-fi

I did wonder if it's demilitarised zone but thought nah, can't be!
Well it seems to be working so I'll leave alone. Till something goes pearshaped and I have to get familiar with it all over again.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Re: Extending Wi-fi

I understand all of those words in isolation Nick, but not in that order :-).

So I unticked the box and lost the WiFi, so it looks like it perhaps does have its own network?

Why might I want a VPN server, and I'm not a gamer but what's NAT? And a DMZ?

Re: Extending Wi-fi

So you now have two DHCP servers now running on the same subnet? :bounce: I'm not 100% sure TBH. I suspect it may also be running a DHCP server, screenshot of the router page attached. But it was working so I wasn't sure, and after the afternoon I'd had with it I was inclined to leave it alone as i...

Depends on your subnet mask but the typical 255.255.255.0 or /24 class C mask puts those two addresses in the same subnet.
Yep, 255.255.255.0, so the same subnet then :-)

Re: Extending Wi-fi

Well, I had some fun and games. I was having to reset my Microsoft password in order to login to Windows for some reason, but when I next started it wasn't recognised. And I had to reset it again to get back in. I began to fear that we had a virus. So I spent a lot of Sunday afternoon trying to get ...

Certainly their most famous. Maybe Rattle and Hum was better, maybe it wasn't.
