    Fibre speed over LAN vs WiFi

    Thanks for responding guys. Both modems are set at 2.4ghz. If I'm not mistaken, both are b/g/n capable. I know the secondary one is 2.4 and 5 switchable. I'll look into the settings. Ideally I'm looking for 802.11n, it would seem.

    Fibre line package upgrade turnaround time

    Hi Pariah What kind of speeds are you getting on you 100meg line. I'm with Mweb via Vumatel. I had a 50meg line. Running at pretty much 45 to 50 at any time. I've upgraded to a 100meg line, but I get 92 on LAN (which is fine) and about 60 on wifi (which sucks). Interested to know your speeds...

    What is the best mobile phone you have ever owned?

    Huawei P20 lite. I thought the LG G4 was excellent, until my affair with the Huawei began. Excellent battery, excellent camera. 4gig Ram, 64gig storage in a Lite version. Excellent. P30 lite is next on the cards.

    Mexican Kitchen - Cape Town

    Does anyone know if the Mexican Kitchen, just off Long Street, still exists? I've tried calling to make a reservation, but no luck. Telkom directory enquiries has their number as 021 4231541. When I call I get one of those, 'the number you have dialled does not exist' messages. I walked past...

    Telkom Mobile Data Sim - help needed.

    Probably an easily solvable problem. I bought my son a Lenovo Tab for Christmas along with a TM data sim. I seem to imagine that the lady at the Telkom outlet gave me a piece of paper along with the sim. I have lost (or misplaced) this paper, which I think, would have contained the...

    Considering buying a laptop

    My PC is giving me intermittent problems. It is due to be upgraded / replaced. I usually do quite a bit of gaming, but lately I've been gaming on consoles. Taking this into consideration, I thought may be a good idea to get a laptop instead of another desktop. Are there any laptops in the...

    Family viewing on DSTV - Channel 122

    I came home from work now. My 11 year old daughter is watching Big Bang Theory. As I walk into the lounge, I hear Leonard saying to Penny that he only watches some films with her so that they can have sex. Penny then said something about the two of them having sex. I quickly grabbed the...

    Desktop PC - possible power saving problem

    Can anyone offer suggestions? Since yesterday my pc goes into power saving mode while I'm working on it. I've gone into windows (win 7 32bit) and disabled any form of power saver and screen saver. I could be watching Youtube or reading myBB posts (as happened earlier today) when my screen...

    Ross Braun leaving Mercedes F1

    I wonder what he'll do now. Maybe he can hookup with Adrian Newey and start a new team or take over Caterham. We could then see them at the front of the grid for a change. In my opinion, Newey is the true champion of F1.

    VW Microbus 2.5

    My wife and I each have family sedans. I've decided to purchase a 3rd vehicle - 1994 Microbus, merely for weekend getaways/beach trips, etc. The guy I'm buying it from doesn't have the owner manual. I've done some net searching hoping to find a downloadable version, but with no success. Does...
