  1. Interesting. The tech created 2 networks - regular and 5G. I have terrible performance on 5G myself, so I connect to the regular (I assume that one is the 2.4) But i will tool around Myfios and see what it is set up for. I don't care about parental controls since he is almost 20 and does what he wants, as long as he keeps up his gpa in college.
  2. Yes, I know what latency is, lol. But good to know about the splitters. All the room jacks are male and the mile of spare parts I accumulated are all male too. Too may males around here!! Turns out that after I posted, he reported that in-game play was fine, but that initial download of a new game was the lousy part. I tried to explain that the server sending the install files is what it is and to just go cut the grass while it chugs.
  3. What kind of connection? We dont have any ethernet outlets, just old coax.
  4. Got a large box containing two slim black boxes that sit on each TV, and one large while router (looks like an air purifier, or an Alexa a bit). The idea was to replace the old setop boxes. We hooked up the black ones and all was well. The base router in the garage handled the 1gb internet, but I was always under the impression that the base unit transmitted via wifi. But it does (did) not since it was cabled up with a lan connection and coax, as are the black boxes on top of the various TVs. So my kid was complaining about his connectivity speed for his laptop, cell, and Xbox. His room is technically pretty close to the base unit, being right below his room. I never had issues some distance away in my work area. So to make a long story short, he tried to hook up the white box as a signal boost (which is how Verizon called it), but we couldn't get a connection. With the help of a Verizon tech over the phone, we ended up swapping out the old router in the garage base station with the white one, and after a few tweaks, all was well. He can actually get a wifi connection on his phone outside in the yard now, and all other devices spin up to about 950mb/sec on speedtest. So far, so good. But his Xbox multiplayer is still clocking at over 2000 ping, which sucks for realtime gaming. I have no idea why. Verizon suggested a signal boost for another 10 bucks rental. I dont think we should have to pay more to boost a signal...this isn't Hearst castle. It should pump through one floor above..lets say 20 feet over and 10 upstairs. Anyone know if the cheap boosters on Amazon or similar would assist? You can get one for about 40 bucks outright instead of the Verizon boost at 200.
  5. John Rich getting upset (as a business owner, as well as part of the music scene) is classic. To paraphrase.." This mayor is well educated, so I'm sure he will understand 4 simple words...CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT" I always considered lawsuit as one word, but he made his point. I can't stand country music myself, but all in all, country singers seem to have their wits about them, not to mention writing their own music and playing their actual instruments.
  6. I just mentioned that to the wife last night....the threshold will quickly creep down to the point where a married couple working low wage retail jobs will soon qualify as "wealthy". Not sure if it was mentioned in another thread, but reminds me of the hedge fund manager who told his town that he will relocate to Florida as his primary residence if they pass any tax increase. They brushed him off, and so he loaded up the truck and moved to Boca or thereabouts. The town (somewhere in north NJ) then realized that this one guy was paying the lions share of the entire municipal budget and now they had to scramble to replace most of their budget numbers. Then we have the scandal on Nashville where the power mad mayor shut down the lifeblood of the city due to fake Covid stats, lost all that business revenue (naturally), and then he raises the tax on the remaining residents by 36% to make up the difference.
  7. Everyone who played painball knows that the guy hit must stand down and leave the field. What's the issue?

  9. If I had one, it would transmit hours and hours of my wife complaining that I loaded the dishwasher wrongly.

    Kt tape

    Sleepy Joe was nowhere to be found, so I was left to fend for myself.

    Kt tape

    I am typing this lefty because my usual hunt and peck method using both hands is somewhat hampered by the fact that my right Humerus bone is smashed in 6 places (you should see the other guy). Pain management? Tylenol extra strength and a ton of whimpering when I roll over in my sleep. Now if this tape was infused with morphine, I would never leave the house.
  12. Have a call in....waiting for reply...
  13. Apparently. I thought they would take into account your payment history on things you dont see on a credit report...utilities, loan sharks, whatever. But giving out my full banking access?? Wow.
