    Compatible wireless-ax network card for Lenovo T480?

    The Intel AX200 wireless card is doing really well in the ThinkPad. With the RT-AX88U in my family room, in the living room all the way across the house the laptop shows about 580Mbps on an internet speed test with gigabit fiber. Bluetooth is also working well. Can't ask for (or use) more than...

    Compatible wireless-ax network card for Lenovo T480?

    Put this wireless-ax network card in the ThinkPad on the strength of the Lenovo reviews it had on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07V86Q3WP/?tag=snbforums-20 and it works great. Very fast and consistently connects to the internet when waking from sleep. While I doubt that it's...

    Compatible wireless-ax network card for Lenovo T480?

    Having some trouble with a Lenovo ThinkPad T480 laptop that we have here. It has an Intel 8625 network card in it that doesn't like my Asus RT-AX88U router even with wireless-ax disabled on the router. I've tried a couple of the drivers that Intel and Asus say should resolve this, 20.70.x driver...

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    An eero user here *smile*. I really like the wireless coverage that I get. Only have one wireless-6 client, and that's just a phone. So the eero works really well for me. Have the 3-Pro nodes pack, and am using MoCA 2.0 to connect the remote eero nodes to the gateway node. Gets me really fast...

    Mesh setup for a 3 floor concrete house and 1gig internet

    Yes, with MoCA 2.0 I get about 400Mbps wi-fi at the remote eero nodes from internet speed tests. Without MoCA (wireless backhaul), I get about 250Mbps on internet speed tests. And with MoCA, much less variable than wi-fi backhaul.

    Mesh setup for a 3 floor concrete house and 1gig internet

    I didn't see anyone pick up on the MoCA 2.0 suggestion...if you have cable TV coax in your walls, this is a good way to use them for ethernet, rather than putting in ethernet cables. Our house is on a slab, without a full attic, so we can't really put in ethernet cables without really tearing...

    MoCA adapters generate "dropped packets"

    Got a new plan. Turn off each MoCA adapter at each remote eero node (one at a time) and see if the messages stop. If they stop, that's the one at fault. I will have to shift one of the remote ones to be the gateway adapter if it is the gateway adapter, to verify that, but no problem. If it's a...

    MoCA adapters generate "dropped packets"

    Unfortunately, Ubiquiti doesn't list their error codes. I've been assuming that it's a packet that is badly damaged/corrupted in some way, or it would be a "Martian packet" error (they contain the packet header) or some other error. The Edgerouter 4 does have "packet capture" capability, but...

    MoCA Rookie - Will planned setup work?

    VoIP via broadband requires a modem or adapter or something. Usually the phone modem is combined with the cable modem, but doesn't have to be. In fact, it's a good idea to have them separate so that you can use the new DOCSIS releases as they become available, and just leave the VoIP phone modem...

    MoCA adapters generate "dropped packets"

    My MoCA network is working well as far as the big picture goes, doing it's job admirably...Motorola MM1000 adapters. I got an Edgerouter 4, switched the eero to bridge mode, and have started to see the occasional message like this in /var/log/messages on the Edgerouter: Apr 11 18:43:18 ubnt...

    ActionTech ECB6200 MOCA adapter , not getting full speed

    Yes, I agree that something's wrong. I'm using the Motorola MM1000 adapters and have about 360Mbps (300/300 fiber provisioned at 20% higher) coming into my house. At the endpoints of my two MoCA 2.0 runs, the speed is about 360Mbps. Very little if any lost bandwidth over the MoCA...a couple of...

    FIOS Coax Range Extender or Mesh?

    Certainly agree that wired backhaul is very helpful for mesh systems. We have a 3-node eero mesh system here that works very well. It worked fine with the wireless backhaul, but now works really well with MoCA 2.0 connecting the remote nodes to the gateway node. The MoCA adapters add 2-3 ms. of...
