  1. Mossy - Let's All Get Together (2007). Lush laid back bluesy various studio and live (mostly acoustic) versions of various Chisel tracks 😎
  2. Right-tee-o then. Second router purchased yesterday and set up this morning. Using the routers' software interface, one set as the primary and one reset as a mesh node. And this morning's 2.4 Ghz Wifi testing results noted above...and indicated whether my phone had auto-connected itself to the PR (Primary Router) or WLM (wireless meshnode). Excuse my casual terminology. maybe not pedantically correct, but should be unambiguous. Summary a) It did take a couple of goes to "find" and synch the wireless mesh node but it seems perfectly stable thereafter b) With the wirele
  3. I will be buying a second same-brand router with a common software interface that allows it to be designated as a mesh node and form a single SSID with the primary router to provide seamless roaming. I'll report back after i give it a crack over the coming weekend. Cheers, 2B
  4. thanks @BugPowderDust There's so many options. For now i'm taking the following path 1) Upgraded the main router yesterday 2) Buying another this week/weekend to set up as a mesh node (wireless at first, then wired) 3) Thinking about running cables to 2 or 3 other locations within the house, but maybe not for a few months Cheers 2B
  5. Ian Moss - Six Strings (2005). Acoustic set of mostly Cold Chisel songs, and a couple of covers. Recorded live. Nice unwind tunes on a cool and rainy Sunday evening and to reconnect with your inner Chisel tragic. My fave on this? Tough call..maybe Bow River 🤘
  6. Mini update, some before and after wifi speed tests . Test done using Ookla speedtest app on my old (6s) phone connected to the 2.4GHz band. Incomer is FTTP and nominal 100/40 subscription OR = original router --> NR = new router Numbers are ping (ms) - download (Mbps) - upload (Mbps) And i've indicated the approx path length and obstacles 1) Study where router is...OR 3-34-46 --> NR 2-74-39 2) Kitchen Bench (5m, 1 brick wall +fridge) OR 3-28-38 --> NR 2-86-45 3) Rumpus room (10m, 2 brick walls) OR 3-30-23 --> NR 2-77-45 4) No
  7. @buzz lightyear uncluttered and and lovely theme you have going there.👍 Got me wondering whether the cartridge is wood bodied too 🙂 Cheers Ticc
  8. Many thanks for the replies @brodricj and @Addicted to music. Actually yesterday while out at the shops i just grabbed a new AC modem (ASUS RT-AC68U) and hooked it up this morning. Setting it to broadcast Wifi at 2.4GHz only seems to be providing enough range and bandwidth. I realised i had previously some users at the far end of the house connected on 5 GHz and that had been p*** poor. But connecting those same users on 2.4 GHz it's pretty good. I'll live with this for a few weeks and then probably get an unmanaged switch to give me extra LAN ports and run cabling
  9. As most often the case for me...randomly purchased cos i liked the name and label aesthetic. Mr (Ben) Riggs "The Bolter" McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018. Decent drinking at the $20 price point
  10. Gosh @Eagleeyes you really must have a magic pudding of awesome audio gear 😵
  11. hey @Jake My house is single storey and the perimeter walls are double brick with cavity, so easy enough for a sparkie to run cables to most locations. I need to learn some more about managed vs unmanaged switches and perhaps run more cables to more wall points. Cheers 2B
  12. hi @manchu None of the hardware i listed/sketched has been purchased as yet. Presently i have only the generic "free included" wireless router than came when i connected to NBN two years ago. Regarding the WAP's I should have labelled them as TP-Link EAP245 which are a ceiling mount clamshell type as sketched. But i am also considering the Ubiquiti ones. I could do away with a switch if i go to a router with 8 LAN ports. But i would still need PoE injectors or a local power point (with wall wart) for each WAP i believe. And I want individual c
  13. @DutchNote def worth getting some lifters. I simply took my platter (different tt to yours) down to Bunnings to ensure i got the right fit and bought two eye-bolts for a cupla bucks each. Cheers 2B
