Mornin' from a dry, still, grey, dull and overcast South Yorkshire. No
sign of any blue or BYT up there as yet today, just high altitude
complete light grey cloud cover. Temperature up the jungle is 15.5ºC

humidity at 62%. WW reckoned it was 15.6ºC, 1022 mB and 92% in

I need some advice please?
I have a wired router with an attached Wireless Access Point (ZyXEL WAP3205).
The WAP is centrally located in a hallway cupboard at a height of approx. 6 feet. It has two of the
short standard rubber-duck antennas.
I am having some trouble with signal quality inside my home, which is solid brick construction. I
have 4 IP cameras, two of which send a clear signal but...

I need the NAS to show it in Explorer since that's the only way I can pick

I seem to have come unstuck in using dyndns. For some years, I've been
using their free service to provide a target for my domain's MX record.
They used to require the address to be updated monthly (or thereabouts)
to keep it live; all worked well. Now they've changed the rules, and
require that one log into the accounts area monthly instead. Tedious,
and if I'm away when the 5-day warning...

I have just copied 18 files from my desktop to my laptop, desktop is

The 18 files amounted to 864 MB and took 8' 53" to copy - 1.62 MB/s.
Putting decimal places in the right place isn't a strength of mine but
that must be around 12.96 Mbps?

I have a new EA2700 which I'm about to introduce into my local network.
I have always changed the default 192.168.1.1/24 network to one of the
other RFC1918 blocks so I set out to do that again.
The configuration screen allows me to change the IP address of the
router to (say) 10.1.1.1 but the DHCP address range is hard coded in its
first three octets, that is to say 192.168.1.---

But you can only get wifi if you are in the window of the shed facing the end of the barn with the...

I'm puzzled. I've got a pf firewall running on a freebsd server. It logs
(while blocking) a lot of inbound packets from the net to a specific
high port number 31534, and a weirdly consistent ack tcp field. The
source port often (always??) seems to be a well-known port number.

Just after some advice. I'm looking into getting a wifi repeater to extend
my wireless coverage. I'm curious though - do they use the same channel as
the original access point, or a different channel?
Anyone able to suggest any decent way of doing this, cheaper the better and
I'm happy to buy old kit and reflash it :-)
