Re: Outlook 2010 Question Please.

Ok, I can understand what your saying, but after I set WLM as the default, don’t I need to configure some settings such as I would like to see the date or the time in the subject line.  If I set WLM as the default, is that all I need to do though? Do I need to know the service addresses for the outgoing and incoming mail?

As far as I know, all that setting any program to be the default does is mean that it will do things when not actually instructed to by you. 
For example, if a browser is the default browser, when you click on a link in an e-mail, that browser will open and go to the page.  If  Winamp is the default media player, pressing enter on an audio file will cause that player to open and play the file.  It has no effect on how a program responds or what it does when you open the program and work with it directly, as you are.  If you want to use Windows Live Mail as the default, there is no reason not to set it as the default.  But it won't affect anything such as setting up accounts or the error message you get.  That is, I don't see why it would affect the error message you get.  I've never seen setting any program as the default change anything the program does when you open it yourself and work with it.  It is only to have Windows open that program when you are working in another program or with a file outside of the program and you want that program to open and handle the file.

Hi Mike,

Beautiful message from Carlos I love it!  Thank you.  If I set this to the default, do you know is it difficult   to set it up, meaning the incoming and outgoing mail settings?

Hi Janet,

 

You probably need to set WLM as your default email client 1st, here's how:

From: Carlos
TO set WLM as the default client:
1. Press the Windows key to open the "Start" menu.
2. Press the Right Arrow key once.
3. Up Arrow to "Default Programs" and select it.
4. Tab to "Set your default programs" and select it.
5. Tab to the list of applications and find WLM.
6. Tab to the "Set this program as default" button and select it.
7. Tab to the "Choose defaults for this program" button and select it.
8. When the "Set Program Associations" dialog opens, check the "Select All"
checkbox.
9. Tab to the "Save" button and select it to exit the "Set Program
Associations" dialog and save the changes.
10. Finally, tab to the "OK" button to exit the "Set Default Programs"
dialog and save the changes.
Carlos

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

I'm not sure what Windows Live Mail is doing.  Microsoft, the company, doesn't send spam.  I don't know what you are receiving nor whether using a different program will solve the problem. 

 

Why Windows Live Mail gives you that message, I don't know but if you remove Outlook and don’t have Windows Live Mail set up yet to work with your e-mail provider, you will not be able to send and receive mail at all.

There is no connection between setting Windows Live Mail as the default program and setting up an account in Windows Live Mail.  All account settings are the same and need to be entered in the same way when setting up an account.

Hi Mike,

Beautiful message from Carlos I love it!  Thank you.  If I set this to the default, do you know is it difficult   to set it up, meaning the incoming and outgoing mail settings?

Hi Janet,

 

You probably need to set WLM as your default email client 1st, here's how:

From: Carlos
TO set WLM as the default client:
1. Press the Windows key to open the "Start" menu.
2. Press the Right Arrow key once.
3. Up Arrow to "Default Programs" and select it.
4. Tab to "Set your default programs" and select it.
5. Tab to the list of applications and find WLM.
6. Tab to the "Set this program as default" button and select it.
7. Tab to the "Choose defaults for this program" button and select it.
8. When the "Set Program Associations" dialog opens, check the "Select All"
checkbox.
9. Tab to the "Save" button and select it to exit the "Set Program
Associations" dialog and save the changes.
10. Finally, tab to the "OK" button to exit the "Set Default Programs"
dialog and save the changes.
Carlos

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Why Windows Live Mail gives you that message, I don't know but if you remove Outlook and don’t have Windows Live Mail set up yet to work with your e-mail provider, you will not be able to send and receive mail at all.

That may be but it appears no accounts have been set up yet in the program.  Therefore, it shouldn't be trying to receive mail, as far as I know, regardless of what accounts are active in Outlook.  As far as I know, the programs are completely separate.  Perhaps others have information about this that will show that I am wrong.

Hi Janet,

Yes, you can indeed use Windows Live Mail without Outlook being installed on your computer, but you do not have to uninstall Outlook to set Windows Live Mail as your default email client. Then you can simply remove Outlook from your desktop and forget about it. If it is installed as a separate application on your computer, it will be easy enough to uninstallif you wish to, but if it is part of an Office Suite, then it would be easier to just leave it there.

Re: Mesh router thoughts

Comcast, and most ISP’s, will typically offer support with third party equipment that is listed as being compatible with their network. At least through the set up and connection process. If it comes down to where there seems to be a problem with either a third party modem or router, then they will suggest that you contact the device manufacturer for assistance in correcting the problem being experienced.  Some of the technicians that one must talk to from these foreign companies barely speak enough English to be able to converse with a customer, and most times the support session takes quite a bit longer than it should.  When I spoke with Trend Net on a couple of occasions, when they found out that I was a blind person, they couldn’t fathom how I could use a computer at all. They had never heard of nor seemed to even understand the concept of a screen reader. One technician kept telling me to have the person who was with me to see what the condition of the lights on the router was. He thought I was lying to him when I said that I was alone,lol. As true as it is, it is hard to believe that there some people still in this world who are not aware of the capabilities of an industry in which they work.

Not to mention, the ISP has absolutely no obligation to give support for any other hardware that doesn't directly come from them that you might be using as a part of the network. I've even had customer service folks at comcast tell me that I shouldn't be using routers and such, unless they're devices that come from the ISP.
Take care.

It doesn't matter if Outlook is installed or not.  You can install and use Windows Live Mail either way.  It would be a good idea to keep Outlook until you have installed Windows Live Mail and it is set up with your account and working properly.

Hi Everyone,
I'm not sure if this message will show up to the list or not, as I've been trying to read and send messages to this list for days, but I'll take another chance at it.  I want to know if I completely delete Outlook 2010 from my computer, can I install WLM?  I am having so many problems with this Outlook 2010, and I can't stand it, and I just want to get rid of it!  I am running Windows 7 JAWS 18.
I think I asked this question before, but I believe someone told me I have to have Outlook installed on my computer before I could use WLM.

Hi Norman,

 

Yes, you cannot expect to call the technical support group at your ISP and necessarily get good results, but by speaking to the dedicated Wi-Fi support personnel, you typically do get a to talk to someone who is well versed on the subject, at least that is what I find with Comcast.

 

Google is no less reliable than any other search provider, but as has been stated here, you nust consider the source and the reliability of that source.

 

Most local network tech companies are not going to hand out advice or support for free. They are in business to setup and maintain these networks for bpeople, not to offer technical support services to anyone who calls them. Believe me, I have tried it.

 

You are correct, bridging between two routers is to extend the Wi-Fi signal from one router to the other, but I said that the ethernet capabilities would be affected through this process, and that effect is that the ethernet ports no longer work after setting up a Wi-Fi bridge. Amy technician will tell you this.

Hi.

you wrote,

Note: If one chooses to use Wi-Fi bridging, it will disable the ethernet capabilities on a network. In other words, you cannot bridge between two routers and still connect to them via an ethernet connection.

 

Not true. If this were the case then what good would a wifi bridge be?

The purpose of a wifi bridge is to extend the network without having to run a network cable between the 2 routers.

 

you wrote.

If you want correct information on the subject, call an expert like your ISP, not Google. There is more unreliable information posted on the internet than there is reliable information. Be sure that you know your sources.

 

This can be true with a couple of qualifiers. Your ISP is usually not the expert on this type of thing. A local tech company that specializes in networking is a much better bet.

Google is a good source provided you know what exactly you are looking for. However, you need to use correct search terms.

 

HTH.

This is the setup that I use and have been using for quite some time.

Hi.

I didn't mention mesh routers here as i don't know much about how they interconnect with each other but if i'd have to guess it's some sort of wireless bridge.

A quick 5 minutes on google got me this.

Hello.

There are some misconceptions being thrown around here.

All the configurations discussed in this thread are possible. However, Terms are being used interchangably and therefore i'm afraid it's causing confusion. There are several ways 2 routers can be strung together. All have there advantages and disadvantages. I'll try to lay it out here so it makes sense.

Guidelines. All the following assume a main central router with one or more routers connected to it.

 

1, wired access points. A wifi access point is a router or deticated device that connects to your router and extends the range of the wireless network. In this configuration there is only one network no matter which device is used. This is the configuration used in large buildings or office environments. There can be one or more access points connected to the same router. I personally use the following access point.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072N8ZNR6/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Ubiquiti has some very good access points as well but they are a pain to configure correctly unless you live in an office environment where you use a lot of them. Almost any router can act as an access point as well. Following is a general article on how to set it up.

http://www.practicallynetworked.com/networking/convert_wifi_router_to_access_point.htm

This article is very general but should get you started.

 

2, wireless bridging. This is similar to the configuration discussed above but instead of a wired link the link between the 2 routers is wireless. A use case for this could be to send signal between 2 buildings without having to run physical wireing. This is generally complicated and i'd recommend if someone is going to do this they use deticated antennas like the following.

https://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-Nanobeam-Wireless-Bridge-NBE-M5-16/dp/B00K8OCW1S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1508571342&sr=8-2&keywords=nanobeam

In a typical setup you'd use 2 of these, one on each end and link them. Then you can plug in a switch or wifi access point to get devices connected to the network.

A general overview on setting up wireless bridging is here.

http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-turn-an-old-router-into-a-wireless-bridge/

You may or may not need to flash your router as done in the instructions above. Check your router manufacturer for more details.

Here is a ubiquiti article on setting up a bridge.

https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/205142890-airMAX-How-to-Configure-a-Point-to-Point-Link-Layer-2-Transparent-Bridge-

 

3, Range extenders. These are devices that connect to your main router wirelessly and rebroadcast the signal. Here is an example device.

https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Extender-Extends-Throughput-RE200/dp/B00NR2VMNC/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1508572233&sr=1-4&keywords=wifi+range+extender

I don't have any experience with how well this one works.

 

4, multiple routers.

And now you have one final option, Set up multiple routers to act as there own network. You can set up as many as you want. This is just the same as plugging into your modem with any router. Each network will be selfcontained with no interconnection to the other ones you may have set up.

 

This is a little overview of different methods that can be used to extend internet throughout your home and surrounding areas. If you have any questions just ask. The concepts discussed above can also be researched on google, just be sure of what you're wanting to do.

Hi.

This is what i would recommend. If you have the house wired with ethernet cables use wifi access points instead of a mesh setup. I personally don't have any experience with the mesh router setup so can't speak to how well they work but i like wired access points over range extenders any day.

Almost any router will work as an access point with some configuration. Set the lan ip of the router to something within your current routers subnet and turn off the dhcp server on the second router. Also make the wireless ssid and password as well as encryption to match the current router exactly. Now plug the ethernet cable into any of the lan ports on the back of the router. Now you have an access point.

Note, In this setup the internet port on the second router is not used at all so can be disabled.

 

HTH.

I live in a house of similar size, I am using a second wireless router connected via an ethernet cable to my main router and this set up gives me great Wi-Fi signal through my house. It is a much better setup than using Wi-Fi range extenders which I have tried before. There is virtually no loss of signal strength through the ethernet cable connection.

To be clear, I do think my Archer C9 1900 AC router is a perfectly fine device. It just so happens I live in a pretty big house. From what I’ve read, mesh routers may be a better bet when dealing with a space over 3000 sq-ft. Other variables not withstanding. My place is 3400 sq-ft and why most of the house is ok, there are some trouble spots that I’d like to take care of.

I'd herd pretty good things about the archer's range. That it was considerably better than some of the other similar devices. I'd actually thought about purchasing one and placing one of the third party firmwares on it.

As far as mesh routers though, I only know that the Mikrotik I use has the ability, but I've never actually used it or don't really know much about how it all works really. Depending on the manufacture you decide to go with though, I'd highly recommend checking over on redit to see if the device in question is covered and what over all experiences people have had using them. It has been an amazing source of information for help with this router, as it's documentation sucks the big one.
Good luck.
Take care.

Hello list,

Was looking for some feedback. I’m currently on the Spectrum 200 MB internet plan with a Motorola Surfboard 6190 with a TP-Link Archer C-9 AC 1900 router. Both the modem and router are mine.

In general, my internet is fine, but I live in a 3400 square foot two story house with a lot of connected devices. The usual, desktops, laptops, smart TVs, iPads/iPhones, a few fire sticks Apple TVs, etc.

I’m noticing that in certain parts of the house, coverage isn’t as reliable as I’d like it considering what I’m paying for and the equipment I’ve got. I know having so many connected devices can play a roll, but there’s a second master bedroom where a family member lives and the garage where I work out for example where it’s an issue. The Ring Video Pro at times can drop as well which is certainly annoying.

I’ve been thinking of getting set up with a mesh router and was curious to know if others have a similar set up and whether they noticed any significant improvement over all? I’ve already got one wifi range extender downstairs and at this point, if I start consider getting more for this and that area, a $300 mesh router set up may be a reasonable alternative if all the claims are true.

I’d have to imagine that on some level, mesh routers would work like a traditional wifi router with the interface and whatnot, but again, I’d like to know if the coverage hype is indeed warranted.

Thanks,
