Re: internet issues and wanted to create my own network
I wanted to control my network, not spectrum. Their always doing things to my internet and i do not feel they are being very secure. The router does not have a long enough range to reach all threw the apartment, mainly because of where they positioned the equipment and they do not have wi-fi extenders to work with their equipment. I had that discussion last night when the network was not connecting once again in my room and in the front bedroom. I went to the router page to see if I could fix it. I tried changing channels and it still would not work, it kept telling me to contact the provider. So i was on the phone for 40 minutes. SO they fixed it and would not tell me what they did so I could prevent it from happening again. They just said just call us again if it happens again. So i still do not know why I repeatedly lose internet connection at night, during the day, it is fine. I wanted 2 factor on the router but, they do not support it; well, the guy said it can be done but, he does not recommend it; why? So hopeing if I can get my own router, I would have some control and I could have 2 factor and with wi-fi extenders, we would not keep losing connection. I know i am really knew to this process but, I wanted vetter security and more control over my home network. Thank you Heathertoggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I wouldn't believe any sighted person who tells you something isn't accessible when they don't know how we do things. The router very likely is accessible if you use its web page interface. But the tech is probably correct about many things not being able to be changed since that is probably true for everyone.
