    Wi-fi keeps dropping from two different routers

    I have a Linksys CM3016 router and once or twice a day the speed will drop to under 2 MBPS. Resetting it fixes the problem, but it takes about two minutes to reboot and it's usually at an inconvenient time. So I bought a Netgear Nighthawk X4S, replaced the Linksys and, after setting it up, it...

    So I've just gotten a new PC and I have no idea how to connect to the internet. I have a feeling it may be some sort of wire or cable as all o have is the main wire and an HDMI. When I click on the internet icon at the bottom, my internet network doesn't show up.

    Bad Upload I think?

    I've been having this problem for awhile now. I play a lot of games and talk to friends through discord. In games everything seems slow to react to my commands and inputs and on discord my voice randomly cuts out even though it says I'm connected and my voice it going through. I'm guessing its...

    Using laptop as a mobile hotspot

    I recently moved to a student dorm which has internet only accessible through Ethernet cables. To avoid buying a router, I decided to use my laptop as a mobile hotspot for my cellphone and tablet. At first, it didn't work.
