• SSH Keep Alive To stop Disconnections


    Are you tired of coming back to your computer only to find your SSH connections have been broken? Even worse are the ones that hang where it appears to be connected but it is really not. The one option you have is an SSHclient side modification to send KeepAlive packets, sometimes this can also keep up your WiFi connection and stop it from disconnecting you as well. To make the keep alive changes for your just yourself (not system wide)........
  • Wifi Antenna Extension Cable is called RP-SMA


    This sounds silly but if you don't know you don't know and the cable name is "RP-SMA" and allows you to extend your wifi antenna as long as the cable goes.........
  • HowTo Migrate and Import iPhone/Outlook Contacts into Android without using GMail using .vcf files


    I searched for days after getting my Galaxy Note and couldn't find a way to do this (at least not without buying programs for either Android/Windows). All I read was ways to sync and import the contacts to GMail but I don't want to use GMail for privacy reasons. GMail/Google steal all of your personal information and use it for whatever purposes they want to and may sell or release it to who knows where (I don't care what their policy says but this stuff happens), just like the default........
  • Linux Realtek Gigabit NIC huge/high latency problem after sleep?


    That is pinging to the gateway IP on the same switch, the same IP is pingable externally without any problems which makes me think the switch is fine. 64 bytes from 55.55.55.55: icmp_seq=4 ttl=255 time=1.07 ms 64 bytes from 55.55.55.55: icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=3536 ms 64 bytes from 55.55.55.55: icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=2536 ms 64 bytes from 55.55.55.55: icmp_seq=3 ttl=255 time=1536 ms 64 bytes from 55.55.55.55: icmp_seq=8 ttl=255 time=1.20 ms 64 by........
  • Wireless/xmit power - DD-WRT v23 SP2 (09/15/06) std - build 3932 Linksys WRT54G/GL/GS


    I played around with xmit power (how much power in mW) to see if I could increase the range and signal strength. Idon't think this Linksys WRT54G's strength is the wireless, it seems to have poor signal quality and transfer rates all around. Ithink part of the problem is also that there are several wireless networks around my house that could be interfering and the walls are thick here. Anyaway, moving on now :) The default is 28mW and I increased it to........
  • iPhone Enable Tethering Manually Update ipcc Carrier Settings/Update via SSH


    Everyone says there is a "manual" way of doing it and then they tell you to use iTunes, but if you're like me, you're travelling on business in a foreign country and your laptop does not have iTunes and you don't have a way of getting it and/or don't want it. For this example I'm using the provider "du" in Dubai, UAE (United Arab Emirates) but this method works for virtually all providers. The requirements in this case to truly "manually update........
  • iPhone/iPod touch on 3.0 software overheating?


    There have been lots of reports like this going around and Ican confirm my 3GS with 3.0 firmware is overheating as well. It gets quite hot and actually can make your head or hand sweaty when holding it to talk, or simply holding the back cover for any reason. It's a wonder how the device cools itself at all, considering the only thing that could ventilate air are the 2 speakers at the bottom or the single speaker on the front of the device. Apple seems to be making........
  • iPhone Complaint Lock/Standby Disrupts WiFi and uses 3G instead


    Has Apple tried to give a golden egg to the cell phone companies? Has anyone noticed that if you set your lock time to x minutes, the phone doesn't just lock, it goes into standby. When it does this, any WiFi connection you have gets dropped and all push/data functions such as e-mail checking are done through the 3G network. There is no way to change this feature and functionality and it's very annoying, especially if you are downloading something or loading files over the........
  • iPhone 3GS and Bigboss Warning


    Everything was working fine but I believe when Iturned off "EDGE" in Big Boss everythign went haywire, at first my WiFi dropped, then 3G didn't work and I couldn't even make phone calls. If you're having this trouble with your jailbroken 3GS running 3.0 firmware, make sure you don't turn off EDGE, it seems to disrupt all service to your phone.........
  • iPhone 3GS 32GB "Harsh Review"


    Yes, Iadmit I finally got bitten by the hype as much as I can usually see through it all. Keep in mind this review is of the "stock" phone, no jailbreaking yet which is what really unleashes the customizability and whyI bought iPhone. I had better things to say about this phone before buying it, and it is a great phone, perhaps the best on the market by far, if not because of the Mac OS port onto the iPhone and all the apps, etc, etc. With that said........
  • Apple iPhone 3GS and predecessors are leading a revolution


    As much of a computer nerd as Iam, I'm usually a late adopter to technology for a few reasons. Ifeel most new hyped technologies and electronics are mainly fads, and I'm also cheap. Adopting later means you avoid the bugs, kinks and most importantly pay the lowest price, that's me being cheap again :) I never read much about the iPhone but Isaw all the hype around it and until recently I wasn't a big fan of anything Apple until a few years ago I realize........
