After Hurricane Harvey, felt the need to look closer into my LAN, WAN, ISP, and VPN. Trialing Nord and Express led me to Speedtesting and Pings. My goal is to optimize my ISP, LAN, increase my wireless capabilities, and provide upmost security for my family. I’m sure many of you have done the same while continually updating. I appreciate helpful advice. I consider my computer skills as slightly above beginner. I am in a research stage at this moment and haven’t felt this invigorated to learn in quite some time. I’m going to actually dust and clean my desk/computer. It is older system with a core2duo cpu, approved ISP router Arris surfboard 6141, and last generation router ... ASUS RT-AC66u.
