I've ordered one anyway, in the hope you lot will tell me how to use it. :-[

You use it remotely from the main router where you have a poor signal. With a cable connection you connect it to the main router and select a free IP address within your local network subnet, this normally defaults to 192.168.0.nnn. Lookup on your PC your internet gateway IP as the first 3 number as this will give you the local network range. Iirc on the Zyxel ones I used you also had to set a matching password to the Zyxel base unit and the SSID. The Zyxel system had a base unit and printer which provided the customer with login credentials which once you were logged onto seamlessly used the nearest access point. My memory is a bit sketchy on this as it was 10+ years ago when I installed these networks. You will probably need a crossover network cable (unless one is provided) and the connect your PC to the router type the default router admin ip address in your browser and use the default account name and password to configure.

You then set this router to a different wifi channel to the one you use on your main router. If there are quite a few wifi connections around you set it to a channel number that will interfere the most with your neighbours wifi ;D that will cause you the least interference. :y

Now I assuming with the 4 aerials that the router can act as a receiver as well as a transmitter. The repeaters I used had this function but at the cost of throughput so I never used it.

When I get the units through I will read the distructions and set one of them up so I can talk through anybody having problems.

That's easy for you to say Chris, you may have missed the beginning of my question ref techno numpty. :-\ :-\ :-\

Yet still only two thirds the Nimitz class!

A fair few peeps ask on here about improving the WiFi Coverage, so thought this may help someone out for 13.

A Closing Down Sale Item. so reduced to clear, cant vouch for it personally but cheap enough price wise.

For us techno numptys, how would I use this? In place of an existing router? or in addition to it in another room to extend coverage? :-\

Cruise control?

Incidentally, if you come to Spain this year and go off on the open road , the cops have discrete mobile cameras which are moved around. They sit under the armco at the roadside.

Oh no, I was slated when offering this for speed control on my course. " You can't concentrate on the road while in cruise control"!!! ??? ??? ???

When I post up piccies on the sites I frequent, I try to make things look bigger  :y

Just so they look nearly normal?  ::)

Get yourself some cards made up Andy. I've found most suppliers, including main dealers, will give trade prices if you blag it with a card. ::) :y

Also.....when you bought a flymo you used to get an orange spanner to change the blade, and a couple of spacers to lower the cutting height. Not any more.

Shouldn't be a problem for a former omega owner. Boxes full of spare parts suitable as washers and you will have the right spanner.
I have got the right spanner, and some spacers.....because they came with the old mower...and I throw nothing away.  ;D

There are things in my cupboard, brackets, plastic thingies that I have no idea what their for, a million screws, washers, more plastic thingies, plumbing fittings, bits of wood......I really should throw it.......but no.  :)

I can promise you Steve that if you throw one thing away, that you have kept for over 40 years 'just in case', that you WILL need it next week. Don't ask how I know that. :-[

The Silver Bullet arrived back about 10 days later, with a very flat battery that would never recover, and MDTM (on an earlier forum) suggested crank sensor, which cured it

At least I carry a spare in the 3.2. (notwithstanding Nick's disagreement with this policy. ::))

Before buying any ATF, check level first. If its around right (use a bent bit of wire, if none comes out, to check level), don't bother pissing around with it, and get a 2nd hand known good box.  I wouldn't pay more than about 50 for an AR25 box.

Fitting is a pain, I'd say, having some a few with help, its only just achievable using jacks and stands.

And if possible fit an AR35, (straight swap) which are more robust. I think there was one on sale on OOF recently if required.

Fitted a kitchen from MFI in the last house and it was decent stuff. Better than the rubbish the builders fitted here.
It;s not the builders ,the developer / specifier picks the crap to get installed  ::)
I did quite a few "MFI" kitchens before they went bust
most was good stuff.
I got things like worktops, sinks and appliances elsewhere  :-X
 (mfi made money from extras ,designers where told to add all the fancy trims ,decor panels etc )
in the end ,mfi made it complicated ,you ended up buying off some unknown  " sister company" on the invoices
worried if you'd ever get delivery  :(
I fitted a few MFI kitchens from their quality (Hygena?) range and was quite impressed. MFI had gone by the time I fitted a kitchen here at home from Magnet, and although I specified the layout and units, it turned up with all sorts of decor panels and trims I had not ordered! Also the carcasses were 16mm and not 18mm thick as promised, so would not take the weight of my combi-microwave, and required a strengthening panel. >:( I would certainly not buy from Magnet again. >:(
