    • I have been trying to get better comcast service( I buy 105 ) as it seems to have degraded even though I have a new computer with Win 10 Pro.  speed test i get 80 xfinity i get 120 test my net I Get 20 mps. ugh............

      I just had the xfinity service call me from India to do follow up for a modem reset. I have an appt scheduled for sat. Just did another reset.  But I can see slow pages - slow outlook emails and pics.  I know its slow. I have an xfinity rented modem. I 'm on the Comcast provided modem/wireless router. ARRIS TG 862.  I own a motorola buts its docs 2.0 and the Xfinity is 3.0 (but it also has that free wireless for everyone feature.)

      I understand they may have a newer modem ?  would like to try that and I will bring that up with service guy
    • This is a decent article on the subject.   http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2372811,00.asp
    • @mudmanc4   Currently running the 2.3.3 dev version of pfsense.   I think it is pretty great. I love the new GUI, and yes the move to pkg was good too. Everything seems to be going in the right direction.
    • Use different ssd's.  In an "unmanaged" wifi access point (AP)  environment,  each AP's is not aware that there are others,  so they will hold on to the connection until it is unusable. Thus,  as you move around,  if the ssd's are the same you will not know which AP you are connected  to,  and it may be the weaker slower signal.  It is a pain to manually switch,  but this is the only way in an unmanaged environment. It doesn't matter if the ssd's are the same or not,  they will not auto-switch as long as a usable signal is available from the current AP.  So the advantage of different names is that you know where you are,  and if you are connected to the "best" AP.   If you want to make this more automatic,  search for "managed access point" - there are solutions out there for under $100 per AP.  All AP's have to be under management.
