  1. Thanks, I have registered to be contacted for StarLink some time ago and registered again with a different email just in case a few months ago. As for the other thing you mentioned, I will look into that, never seen it before but I think I see what you mean. So, I would need the U-LTE-Pro-EU which is an exterior antenna and a UDM-Pro which is a switch/router. OK, that's a nice, seemingly simple, solution. I will take a look, thank you.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm completely out my depth here and really need some beginner guidance on how and what I need to setup a backup 4G connection for my home. I have a new job working from home, the hours are incredible, it's been fantastic but my connection is letting me down and I'm terrified of losing the job. I now live in Europe and in a very rural part, I'm a 2hr drive from the nearest small town and 4+hrs from a minor city so my connection now is sort of like hotspots; it's a wireless signal beamed from the nearest town to a village, then another village and another... 11 or 12 village
  3. Thanks but that isn't possible. As I said, sometimes while in a rush with a client on the phone going nuts because XYZ I'm balancing 20 tabs and apps at once, soon or later I will click a bookmark, forget to middle-click and... Bam!... work on that page is gone.
  4. Yes, I have checked and there's nothing. I figured there must be an extension surely but I can't find one
  5. I've started a new job that requires me to be bouncing from page to page, app to app... every few seconds and no matter how much I concentrate I keep forgetting when rushing and accidentally left-clicking a bookmark and losing everything I've just wrote or been working on because a lot of the sites/pages don't save drafts. (Inb4, I know about ctrl-click and middle-click, I do normally do this but sometimes while rushing I forget and lose work/time) I really need either an extension, a setting, or anything that will force bookmarks to always open in a new tab on left-click? Even if
  6. Thanks for the info, I was aware of the differences although mostly only the basics, I only mentioned the amp as the user above suggested it. I do want to get one and a DAC in the future to improve my setup so I appreciate the recommendations.
  7. I started a new job last night and had problems the whole time with getting my audio set up (great first impression). It's working now but I have a constant Hissing through my headphones when the mic is plugged in and if I talk loudly or tap the mic I can hear it clearly through the headphones. The issue is I've been into the Sound settings in W10 and disabled the Listen to this device setting and set the Boost to 0 and Mic level to 1 but it still does it. Is there any other setting I'm missing that causes this, or is it completely normal and I've just never noticed it?
  8. Thanks, this was the first thing I checked. Sadly, there are zero networks with a good connection in this area which is why I want to get a router and not just a USB dongle, I'm hoping I can either get one with weatherproof exterior antenna or at least one I can put in my attic/loft to get the best connection possible.
  9. That's extremely helpful, thank you. That drop in connection is what's going to ruin me. At the moment we are experiencing anything from 2 to 30 connection outages a day, especially in the evenings which is when I will be working. So, if I can get a decent 4G router and a good connection I might be better to use the 4G as my primary and WAN as the backup as the 4G is going to have less outages. One more question if I may; are they basically the same as a phone, i.e. if 4G it's available it will connect to 3G or EDGE?
  10. I'm Googling, reading, and learning but can anyone help me out with a crash course bullet points into 4G routers and how they work, anything I need to know or look out for, dos and don'ts, please? I lost my job during the first lockdown last year and struggled badly all year, I've finally got a new job and I start on Monday but my internet is extremely unreliable for the past month or two due to ongoing upgrades in the region, I'm terrified I'm going to lose this job as well before I can even start, so I need to get a 4G connection as a backup ASAP. Questions I have so far: A
  11. It would be with a different provider. My phone provider is crap, I need to change really but I never SMS or call, everything is online now. It was probably over a year ago since I last texted or call someone not over VoIP. This is extremely helpful, thank you. I've never had the need for this before so I wasn't fully aware 4G routers were a thing, I assumed there must be something like that, some sort of advanced dongle so to speak but I wasn't sure. Great stuff, thank you. Sadly, they all say they have great coverage and technically they aren't lying
  12. Hi everyone, please bear with me here as I've never had or needed to use a mobile data dongle/adapter until this week. Reason I'm asking: I'm starting a new job next week but my WAN connection has started being super slow and very unreliable recently. I emailed my ISP who told me they are doing region-wide upgrades for the next 12-18 months so I should expect frequent outages. Amazing timing! I immediately looked for another ISP but it's this one or nothing as I'm in a rural area. So, I went to a store and picked up a 3G/4G dongle but I could barely even connect! When I managed
  13. Ah right, yeah the core and mem clock will bounce up and down even if the monitor is still displaying or either monitor and I've tried with only one, but to be sure I just tried a different cable and port with no luck. I will try a fresh OS install tomorrow as it's 3:00am and my brain is shot.
  14. Hi everyone, I really need some help and advice please. My system is old but still does what I need it to as I mostly play older games plus I do Not have the money to upgrade, the card is a Gigabyte G1 980Ti. I've been happily playing every night when suddenly tonight my fps is bouncing around like crazy; 150 to 30, 150 again, then 30, 150... I alt-tab out and checked Afterburner to find my core and memory clocks are spiking and throttling, jumping up and down every second or two; 1550MHz to 400MHz, back to 1550, 400 and repeat... Then it black-screened but the system was still on just my
  15. Thank you very much for that info and advice. Yes, that was my intention - do a fresh install on a new drive, update absolutely everything, install all drivers, apps, games etc, set everything how I want it... then do a backup. But can you tell me any more info regarding my second question, please. Does it keep absolutely everything even app and game config/settings files, would everything be installed with all settings how I had them? And I assume it's just the C:drive that gets imaged and restored, so games and apps I have installed on different drives would need to be rei
  16. Skip to the questions at the bottom if you don't want to read all my waffle Hi everyone, I need some help and info regarding OS backups and images, but please (ELI5) explain like I'm 5yo as my knowledge is very poor on this subject. I'm a little ashamed to say that after more than 2 decades of being a techy PC nerd/enthusiast, I've never actually done any OS backups, imaging, or even learned much about it. I'm hoping with Googling, reading, and some nice kind people on the forum I can fix that. Explanation / Me waffling: My understanding over the years of OS backups and
  17. So, I found (was told about) this app, InSpectre. [Edit] It's a tiny self-contained app that can disable and enable the Spectre and Meltdown patches, so if your system performance takes a hit after installing the patches you can disable them to improve performance. The creator of the app is Steve Gibson - software engineer. He's a well known and respected software engineer who hosted the Security Now podcast and runs GRC for those who don't know the name.
  18. I completely understand. When Windows 10 first released and all the spyware data mining crap came to light, I also flat out refused to updowngrade to it. I stayed on Windows 7 as 8 was a bust, I had a beautiful ISO for 7 that I had stripped clean of crap over nearly 10 years. I stayed with it until 2018 when a game forced my hand, I was looking forward to playing this game since it was rumored to be in the making, I finally bought it and couldn't even install it as it required some system features and code that was introduced in Windows 8. I spent literally weeks trying to find a work around
  19. That's awesome, thank you. I didn't know the specific MD/Spec exploit patches could be removed, I assumed they would be hard-coded in. That is very helpful if I do notice a big hit to performance. I do understand what you mean by leaving me vulnerable, I normally would always stay fairly up to date, well, once an update has been out a while and tested so I know it won't brick my system, but as that system is literally only turned on when I want to game and only connects to Steam to DL game files, no work, no browsing, nothing, I took the risk to avoid the potential drop in performance.
