This should give you an idea how they work, answer any questions you have about buffering, speeds,...

Just a thought what would the speed be like in my friends, for example would I be able to watch Netflix or YouTube in my phone at my friends like I can do at home no buffering etc as I never have mobile data Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
Access Point would be my recommendation, they come in different price ranges depending on what you want. https://engenius.factoryoutletstore.com/details/494561/engenius-ens620ext.html?category_id=30439&catalogitemid=449928
I live in a cul-de-sac I've got a router that has a 300m range it reaches to the end of the cul-de-sac my friend lives just across the road which is just out of my network, so I think I need a booster/ repeaterSent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
Well long story short, I need to extend my WiFi range by say 100m.
I can't use ethernet as I'm trying to extend my network across the street to a place with no internet access.
Would one of those booster-repeater things work from my understanding I can plug it in and connect to my wireless network with them.
Am I on the right track or am I barking up the wrong tree

No, laptop graphics are soldered to the mb, the most you can upgrade on a laptop is memory and maybe an ssd hard drive, if you want better graphics buy a gaming laptop with better graphics on the mb.
Now i know upgrading your PC hardware is simple enough assuming you've got the right parts, ive got a acer laptop with hdmi graphics the graphics card is an ATI, Mobility HD4870. i would like to swap it out for something that packs a little more punch and is windows 10 compatibleis this something that can be done?

here is the offending drive have no clue which brand hard drive it is as some bright spark has removed any labels it may have had. the drive shows up in my bios and i have not checked the drive for errors yet but it is worth mentioning it clicks a fair bit and sounds like it power cycles during the clicking.could the logic board be toasty roasty if so are they still replaceable Sent from my Nokia 4.2 using Tapatalk

well to cut a very long story short, i got a 2TB usb 3 Hard Drive from the bay, plugged it in to my xbox one to format it and it refuses point blank to co-operate with it, i plug it into my pc and laptop which are both running different versions of linux.
the drive is recognised by the os's but cant be formatted or anything.
could the hard drive be restricted some how if so how do i remove it

Hi all ive been wanting to dip my toes into the world of raspberry pi and i think ive found the perfect project.
i have my media server on my local network and i use my xbox to watch my media from my server.
i would like to replace an aging laptop i use to access my media in the other room but i need something that wont just flop over and buffer, so i ask which PI would be best suited for my needs.
wifi is probably the best bet as running an ethernet cable is problematic due to the distance to the other room.
im a little skeptical of using a sd card as main os drive as I've broken at least 5 in the last 2 years
any recommendations or advice you can give will go along way towards helping.

can no one recommend a router that is up to the task? Was expecting a few shout outs for Dlink and Netgear and some info from someone who has used the equipment and can tell me what they are like.Sent from my WAS-LX1A using Tapatalk

I have been using the new MESH networks now with amazing results. I have the TP-link Deco system and love it.
