    Does the unspecified make and model of router support disabling WiFi between certain hours? Do you want to disable WiFi or do you want to disable Internet access? These are not the same thing. If you disable Internet access then, although the Internet is not accessible, local networking such as a wireless printer or a file or media server can continue to be used. Do you want to disable Ethernet as well as WiFi? If you want to stop all networking and the router does not have the necessary feature, simply include a mains time clock to cut the power to the router during the OFF hours. I hope this helps.

    I have been experiencing these disappearing for months, but when it happened I logged out (I normally set 'Keep signed in') and log in again. However, I suspect some clown has made a code change with no apparent benefits and this serious drawback. I don't tend to use the notifications section, but I do access 'My Followed Questions', 'My Network', 'My Questions' and 'My Answers'. I have found a way of getting these back. First, I created a comment or an answer to a question. Then I clicked on the my icon or name attached to the comment or question. This brought up my status report showing my Points, Best Answers, Answers and Questions. I saved the URL for this page, and now I use that to access YA each time I come to the site. https://answers.yahoo.com /activity/questions? show= ...................................=g I have included a three of spaces to defeat YA's shortening of long strings (hopefully). The row of dots replaces the user account code that YA uses to reach my account. For Notifications, which I don't use, the URL is: https://answers.yahoo.com/notifications? This URL seems to work if you use it in a different tab of the same browser once you are logged in to your account. Don't click on the link that YA shows in the first URL. I have included this URL by way of example so ignore the fact that YA tries to make the first part into a link. You will have to capture your appropriate URLs and bookmark them. It seems to work for me. I hope this helps.

  • How do I reset the router correctly to apply the setting changes I've made on my router login website?

    You don't need to touch the modem. If you reset the router (rather than simply restarting it by removing its power for 15 seconds) then all the settings will go back to the factory defaults.

    You don't need to touch the modem. If you reset the router (rather than simply restarting it by removing its power for 15 seconds) then all the settings will go back to the factory defaults. You should just log on to the router configuration pages and change the settings that you require. By changing the Mbps of the WiFi settings, what you are actually doing is selecting what WiFi modes such as 802.11n or 802.11g are supported, and what further options within those modes will be available. These are only maximum settings, and actual real connection may be slower depending on the distance to a client device and the modes the device actually supports. Don't reset the router, just go through the configuration pages and change any that need changing. It is safer to do this from an Ethernet connected PC. An error changing a WiFi setting from a WiFi client may mean that WiFi does not work until you correct the error. I hope this helps.

  • Hard drive wont spin up??

    What tends to happen with very old hard drives is that the friction between the heads and the disk surfaces becomes too high for the motor to spin the disk. The term that is often used is 'stiction' as the heads stick to the disk surface. Modern disk drives tend to park the heads on a small ramp at the outer edge of the drive platters. The heads are on spring arms that push the heads towards the disks' surfaces, but when the disk is spinning air movement very close to the disk surface keeps the heads flying very close to the surface without actually touching. The ramps lift the heads slightly away from the disk so there is no contact when the disk stops spinning. When the drive is shutting down, the heads are moved to the parking place, and are normally locked there so any shocks to the drive while it is shut down do not move the heads back over the surface. Older disks used a different method. They had part of the disk surface that was designated as the parking zone. Often this was near the centre of the disk rather than the outer edge as in the ramp system. On these drives, although the actual data part of the disk is very smooth, the parking zone can have small pimples on the surface. As the drives spins down the heads make contact on the landing zone. The little dimples mean that the area of the heads that contact the disk surface is very small, and the friction is low so the motor can spin up. After many stop/start cycles, the dimples and the heads get polished and the area of contact and hence the friction increases. The problem first appears when you have to attempt a drive start up several times, but eventually the stiction becomes to high and the drive will not spin up. Sometimes you can get a brief respite from the problem by taking out the drive and holding it so that the disk axis is in line with your arm and the largest two faces of the drive are at right angles to your arm. Next, rotate your hand back and forth quickly as though you are turning a screw driver. The sudden rotation of the drive casing will try and drag the disk around with it inside the case. The mass of the disks will resist this, and if this is sufficiently vigorous then it may overcome the stiction. If you are lucky, the next time you power up, the disk may spin up as before. If you succeed, keep the drive running until you have copied off everything you need to recover. This might include cloning the drive onto a replacement. As an extra bit of information. If the drive loses power suddenly while it is running, then energy in the spinning disks is captured by the drive motor acting as a generator and this power is used to park the heads safely before the disk slows down too much. I hope this helps.

    Best answer: One of the real advantages of Ethernet over WiFi is if you are playing online games. WiFi is a shared half-duplex interface. Other WiFi users will cause interference. Also, WiFi shares the wireless spectrum with other users. If a near neighbour has a WiFi network and they are doing a large download, then it can seriously slow down your WiFi if it is using a wireless channel close to the one you are using. Ethernet is a dedicated full-duplex connection. You are not sharing that connection to your router with anyone else. Also, unlike WiFi, Ethernet can send acknowledgement packets in one direction at the same time as it sends data packets in the other direction. With online gaming, random delays caused by other users or other networks can upset some games. If you are getting 18 Mbps from a claimed 20 Mbps ISP service, going to Ethernet is not going to make much difference. It will only become significant if you have a local server - such as storing movies on a desktop PC or a file server, and then streaming them to a different PC in your home. If both connect by WiFi then it will be slower than if one uses WiFi and the other uses Ethernet, or both use Ethernet.Having said that, you will probably find that going between to devices in your home is faster than 20 Mbps over WiFi as the ISP connection will not be involved in such a transfer. Data will go from one device to the router and then from the router to the other device with nothing going to or from the ISP. I hope this helps.
