Buying a TV - Streaming etc. etc


#1102

Whoa.


#1103

Get a electrician to wire it into the same circuit. Might be easy. Might be impossible. Worth a try.


#1104

I cant see how they can completely stop streaming services - they’ll always just reappear… Hopefully these recent arrests are enough for a while and our boy takes extra care also


#1105

Get Google Internet or the slightly cheaper TP Link Deco. They’re mesh wifi packages and will solve your problems.


#1106

The TP Link deco will only cover a 4500 sq ft house.


#1107

I should have also mentioned above.

You need to do some tests on the same circuit and see if you’re getting the correct speeds. If not, something else is wrong.


#1108

This is nowt to do with sky or a box, this Netflix and amazon prime dropping off.


#1109

This is likely an extremely stupid question, but the router the broadband provider sent, can I just replace this with that system or would the router be specifically configured for the provider?


#1110

You can buy a router and set it up to work with your broadband fairly easily. Most ISP give the settings for you to do this


#1111

I don’t like the phrase “fairly easily”
I have no idea what an isp setting is.


#1112

Handiest thing is book a flight for @Copper_pipe Id say. Would be quickest way of resolving this


#1113

You add this onto the router you already have.


#1114

I bought a wireless sound system before which was “fairly easy” to set up. I ended up giving it away speaker by speaker.


#1115

My slight worry is that the router is just crap. I have range extenders and the signal is always OK, just the Netflix stops playing mid film repeatedly.
It took three fcuking evenings to watch jack reacher this week.


#1116

I nearly would. Its driving me demented.


#1117

This.


#1118

you might get the internet fixed but you’d lose any finery and silver that was on show.

He’d be checking in a bag coming back


#1119

ring the provider and threaten to leave as the service isn’t meeting your needs. They’ll either fix it or won’t.

If they don’t you go to a new provider and they’ll send someone out to set it up and you can tell them what you need it for


#1120

As a rule, the routers provided by the ISP are fairly shit.


#1121

I’ve one of those big screen flat tv’s and the sound quality is shit. Would a sound bar a good purchase ?
