  • Can I use a home plug to amplify FREE WiFi?

    I work in a pub and the customer free WiFi is less strong/struggles to connect upstairs. If I was to get a home plug, would that work for free WiFi? Or only WiFi you pay for with a password? Many thanks

  • How would you set it up so 2 people in two different apartment numbers in the same complex can have internet over wifi?

    I want internet somehow at two apartments in the same building. I am not for sure wifi will reach from one to the other as I don t know the apartment number or floor yet. However the manager is working on getting me in and it will likely be in the end of December. I am staying with another person here for time being I just recently ordered internet in my name and me and my current roommate agreed to share the expense. I need this internet to reach both places the router will be at one or the other. If I need a second router I will likely have to pay another 50 dollars a month or maybe a little less at a discount but I d rather not. I am with ATT as I ordered from them the equipment hasn t come yet but I was confused by the reps answer he suggested I may not need to pay more but I m not sure he understood what I meant. Anyways if i have to pay more for a second router is there any equipment I can buy to make this possible or where could I plug in a repeater or other equipment that would extend the signal it s an apartment complex I could in the hallway somewhere but it would seem weird. I just want to know how I can do this. We need internet both of us and thought it better if we share expenses right now it s in my name and I paid so far. Is what I am suggesting even possible and if not how much extra will I have to pay and can i even have two routers on the account. Thanks

    We live in the country and the only package available is 25 mbps. Me and my stepbro both are video gamers. I am 20 and he is 15. He likes to stream youtube music, and a youtube fortnite player on mute, all while facetiming his friends, and playing fortnite on his ps4. All that i use is my ps4 to try to play Call of Duty. I go to the lengths of disconnecting my phone from the wifi in order to get a little more mbps upload and download. Me and his father have told him not to use more than one device at a time. Yet, as soon as we close the bedroom door he goes right back to using 4 devices. I dont know what to do because i cant run my games at all ever because he's smoothly running 4 devices. Sidenote: I am ethernet connected and he is not. Somehow he still gets all the wifi. What should i do?

  • How can I string along scam IT and fake IRS callers without actually letting them connect to my computer?

    Best answer: "Let me go get my supervisor/spouse/anyone else." Wait as long as you want. "What was your name again? And you're calling from what organization?" "And this is regarding what, exactly? Oh, we did that last week. It's already been taken care of. Check your records. I'll... show more
    Best answer: "Let me go get my supervisor/spouse/anyone else." Wait as long as you want.

    "What was your name again? And you're calling from what organization?"

    "And this is regarding what, exactly? Oh, we did that last week. It's already been taken care of. Check your records. I'll wait"

    "Oh, there was a mistake and we're doing it again? Okay. Where do I start?"

    "Are you sure? Because I was told to never do this. I'll be in so much trouble. But it should have been done right last week when ______________ did it. What happened? Why didn't ____________ do it right the first time? Who authorized ______________ to do this because he/she doesn't have credentials/qualifications/POA necessary to do it?"

    "What's your phone number and extension in case we get disconnected? Can you repeat that? Oh, I see it's (incorrect #). Uh, my pen ran out of ink. I'll have to find another one....."

    "I think I made a mistake at the second step. Now that we're almost done, tell me again from the beginning so I make sure it's correct. No, no, please let me start over. I don't want to have to do this again!"

    I ve this fan next to my computer, they connected together in the same electric pocket and every time I turn it off, the internet in my computer goes off. Not only that, there is a 2nd floor in my house, and whenever someone turns the light of that floor, the internet also goes off. Note my house is 3 stories and in the ground floor we have a Wi-Fi router and everything. In the second floor, we have a small device attached to the wall so it can give Wi-Fi to first and second floor. I don t know how is this happening, kinda weird.

  • Why do some devices work on home wifi but others don't?

    Up until yesterday we had a couple laptops, a couple cellphones, and a PS3 that all worked on our home wifi.

    Up until yesterday we had a couple laptops, a couple cellphones, and a PS3 that all worked on our home wifi. Our ISP had an outage that lasted about 4 hours, and since it came back the laptops still work fine but the cell phones and PS3 will connect to wifi but can't access the internet. I've spent all day trying every single solution I could find on the internet, both on the devices themselves and in the router configuration. Nothing worked. Why would the internet suddenly not work with some devices but still workwith others? They are all configured the same way. Would this be an issue with the ISP, or would that outage and this problem have just been a coincidence? Would it be a router problem? My router is a a TP-Link one, probably close to 10 years old now. Should I just get a new one?

  • Is there any way to protect your computer when you are on a public wi-fi?

    Best answer: A good VPN, firewall, and anti-malware/virus help. And turn off all automatic updates and synchronize.
