    I have an iphone 7 and an iphone 5 and everytime i try to connect to my hotspot in my house from my iphone 7, it connects to my neighbours. But my iphone 5 connects perfectly to mine. My iphone 5 has 3 bars and is fast wen usinf the hotspot but my iphone 7 has 1 bar and is slow so how do i get my iphone 7 to connect to the wifi hotspot in my house rather than neighbours. I know the way xfinity sets up their hotspots is stupid because they keep the same ssid for every router lol so u dont know which is which. But i know for a fact that my iphone 7 is connected to neighbours and is not recognizing my own. Ive also tried forgetting the network and resetting network so idk. Might have something to do with ip adress or something

  • Is there a way to connect a computer to the internet directly?

    Is there a way to connect a computer to the internet directly?

    Best answer: You connected the wall cable directly to the _modem_ installed in the computer... eg. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41R0BFKENFL._SX355_.jpg The modem is now separate, as it often was back then. http://support.usr.com/support/5668d/5668d-ug/messagemodem.jpg The phone line or cable has an analog... show more

    The modem is now separate, as it often was back then.
    http://support.usr.com/support/5668d/566...

    The phone line or cable has an analog signal, though now at radio frequencies rather than audio as was with dial-up.
    You need a modem to translate that to a digital format such as Ethernet.


    You can get an internal ADSL/VDSL modem card; however that means the connection into the building goes to that only - no sharing the connection, no WiFi etc. so it's a serious disadvantage for most users and a stand alone modem/router setup is more useful.

    eg. an example internal PC card:

  • In android, is it possible to create a Wi-Fi hot-spot when I m connected to a Wi-Fi router? Say I paid thirty bucks for Unlimited in-flight?

    Say I paid thirty bucks for unlimited in-flight Wi-Fi in a long distance plane via satellite, and would like to share my internet with ten relatives and friends.

  • Slow wireless internet, what to do?

    The router is in my wife s office, so connecting an ethernet cord is out of the question. How can I improve my wi-fi internet speed? I m on laptop as well. Its so bad I can t even watch videos without them pausing every few seconds. I m on a very good computer otherwise with a high-end processor/gpu.

  • Ethernet Cable Port On Wall Smaller Than One On Xbox...?

    Ethernet Cable Port On Wall Smaller Than One On Xbox...?

    In my apartment, there's a port on the wall for me to plug my ethernet cable into. This ethernet cable is the perfect size to fit into something such as my Xbox One, but it is slightly too big to fit into the port. Is there an older ethernet cable with a smaller head somebody knows of?

  • Is there a Linux application to throttle WiFi speeds for each device on the router 192.168.x.x/32?

    Best answer: The throttling would have to be done on the router. Many routers are Linux based, but whether you can find an application to do the job, and then install it on the router is another question.

    Best answer: The throttling would have to be done on the router. Many routers are Linux based, but whether you can find an application to do the job, and then install it on the router is another question.

    Another alternative is to create your own customised firmware and flash the router with that. Get it wrong, and you could end up with a paperweight.

    Incidentally, you quote 192.168.x.x/32 in the question.

    There is no reason to hide the last two octets as 192.168 addresses are not Internet routable. Also, /32 is never used as the CIDR definition of a private subnet. /32 means a single direct connection to one specific host. ISPs sometimes use this with public addresses as it eliminates the need for a corresponding host IP specifically reserved at the other end of the ISP connection. Also, since /32 defines just one address, then there are no wasteful subnet ID or broadcast addresses to worry about.

    Your router is probably providing a 192.168.x.x/24 network.

    I hope this helps.

  • I've been told by Geek Squad that a VPN is pointless for a Mac computer because of "stuff" that is already installed; is this true or not?

    Best answer: Ignore Richard, he has no clue how VPN works, and still thinks it's a "proxy server", LOL. How incredibly stupid. While you're ignoring Richard, do the same for Geek Squad.

    If you want an extra layer of protection on the internet, get a VPN. Well worth it. DO NOT get a free VPN, you want a professional service, and that will cost you $5-$10 a month.

  • Explain what RAID 0, 1 and 5 are. When would you use each of these RAID configurations?

    Best answer: RAID 0 - this is purely a performance configuration. In fact it actually can reduce reliability. This type slices the storage into regular small slices of perhaps 1 to 4 kB each. In a 2 drive RAID 0 alternate slices are in opposite drives. Potentially, except for very small transfers, with data transfers spread... show more
    Best answer: RAID 0 - this is purely a performance configuration. In fact it actually can reduce reliability. This type slices the storage into regular small slices of perhaps 1 to 4 kB each. In a 2 drive RAID 0 alternate slices are in opposite drives. Potentially, except for very small transfers, with data transfers spread across multiple drives transfer speeds can approach the total speed summed across all the drives.

    RAID 1 - provides resilience with better read performance. Although all writes are replicated across two or more drives. When reading, each read uses only one drive. Two drives allow multiple files to be read more quickly. With two drives in the RAID, you might get nearly twice the single disk speed. RAID 1 uses a minimum of twice the disk space of a single disk.

    RAID 5 - uses one drive to keep parity for the corresponding sectors on other drives. If one drive fails, its data can be derived from the remaining drives. Read speed can be as good as RAID 1, but writes are slower because of the need to keep the parity correct.

    RAID 0 - use for high read and write speed. No protection from drive failure.

    RAID 1 - use for high read speed, but slower writes than a single drive. Provides protection against drive failure for all but the last drive to fail.

    RAID 5 - use for high read speed, but slower than RAID 1 during writes. The overheads of providing protection from drive failure can be much less than RAID 1. Withstands the failure of just one drive.

    I hope this helps.
