    Anti-Smash & Grab Window Tinting Around Cape Town

    I'm helping a senior family relative with sourcing some quotes for reasonably priced window tinting (anti-smash) around Cape Town, for a 2013 VW Polo Vivo Sedan. So the wallet is not mine, cos it belongs to pensioner. I'm certainly not looking for cheap and nasty, but I don't want to break...

    Huawei B315s-936 LTE Modem keeps disconnecting my iPhone 5s when on WiFi.

    I think I didn't explain better @sajunky, so maybe let me cover just one aspect. When all devices are at home, I don't even take them out of the bag when I get home, not unless I have work work or multimedia stuff that needs the Acer laptop, since I have the desktop for any other task. And I...

    Huawei B315s-936 LTE Modem keeps disconnecting my iPhone 5s when on WiFi.

    My first qestion @MirageF1 would be: When you say "disconnect" do you mean getting kicked off the WiFi network completely? Or is it similar to what I am having issue with, where the phone remains connected to the Huawei modem, with a very strong signal, but I will not be able to do anything on...

    Huawei B315s-936 LTE Modem keeps disconnecting my iPhone 5s when on WiFi.

    Believe me @sajunky, I've been through all the troubleshooting steps with an Apple technician (via chat) who was the one who asked me to run the Apple Diagnostics Mode on the device, and it didn't point to a hardware or a software fault. The only other recommendation was that it could be...

    Huawei B315s-936 LTE Modem keeps disconnecting my iPhone 5s when on WiFi.

    Hi @Tcyte I was very strongly suspecting the same as well. And unfortunately at home where I use the iPhone running the latest iOS, there are no other devices on the latest iOS version that I can compare it to. And this never used to be the case, but I recall that prior to iOS 11, I never had...

    Varying Internet Speed Tests On PC's Connected To Same Network.

    Thanks @sajunky, that does seem to be clearing up what is happening on the MSI machine, on the two networks that I use to connect it to. And the recommendation to get an Dual Band ac WiFI access point for home doesn't seem to be bad one, if I want the MSI's internet speeds to be up to par with...

    Yeah, I'll check properly online, but I thought I should give some warm bodies a chance to impress me first. :ROFL:

    Looking For: "Optical To 2.5 Caddy" & "mSATA to SATA 2.5 Enclosure"

    The concerning bit is that it says it's for Macbook, and I own an Acer laptop. I wouldn't want the thing not to fit. :X3:

    Looking For: "Optical To 2.5 Caddy" & "mSATA to SATA 2.5 Enclosure"

    I have an Acer TMP453-MG laptop, that I would like to upgrade by installing a 128GB mSATA SSD as my primary drive, and use the current HDD as the storage drive. I would need to install the SSD by removing the optical drive to make space for a 2nd hard drive. All I need are: 1) Optical to 2.5"...

    Any Place That Services PS3 Around Cape Town?

    Yeah I had Kieltec repair my pair of PS3 controllers before, and they worked fine. But one had the same issue come up again and I was told it can't be fixed. So one controller only now, as the other one is too jittery to use. So hence I'd like to try somewhere else. Just.

    Any Place That Services PS3 Around Cape Town?

    I'll skim through the responses and get their contacts and hear if he does. Thanks. Well, to issues really. 1) When playing GTA V online for longer period (sometimes it's not even that long), the console will occasionally freeze up, and I will have to do a force restart, at which point I...

    Any Place That Services PS3 Around Cape Town?

    Last I spoke to Partserve, they did not do repairs anymore. I told them about what I'm needing to do on my PS3 a few years ago (cos the console still works, just with the very same minor bugs) and they stated that they would just give me another refurbished PS3 at a flat rate. And I wanted to...

    Varying Internet Speed Tests On PC's Connected To Same Network.

    Just for confirmation: MSI Laptop Speed Tests With LSO Disabled: Connected via LAN Cable Connected via WiFi Acer Laptop Speed Tests With No Tweaking Done: Connected via WiFi So there is still a large discrepancy between the two machines, when speed testing over WiFi, while connected to...

    Varying Internet Speed Tests On PC's Connected To Same Network.

    So I can leave the LSO disabled and it won't affect any other network usage by doing so? As in is there no downside to that? And if it's fine to leave LSO disabled, is there a similar setting I can do for the WiFi adapter to achieve better internet speeds on the laptop?
