General Discussion / Netgear Router warning
« Last post by dickJ on June 24, 2016, 04:23:55 PM »
If you received an email from Netgear in the last few days named Web GUI Password Recovery and Exposure Security Vulnerability, it included a list of Netgear Router numbers with firmware numbers.  Mine was on the list, so after some good advise from Alan, I opened my Netgear Genie and found it needed updating.  After accomplishing that, I found the place on it where I could upgrade my router firmware.  It took 2 minutes + to run with no help needed, and I had a new firmware version.  I then checked back on the above Router list and found that my new firmware version number was NOT on the list! Hurrah!  The new firmware works fine and it was easy to do.  Thank you Netgear!

Get an Alert Whenever You Press the Caps Lock, Scroll Lock or Num Lock Keys in Windows

Be sure to note the concluding message at the bottom of the article:


https://www.maketecheasier.com/alert-cap-lock-key-windows/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=18062016

"Conclusion:
These steps are how you can save yourself from annoying capitalization, just by turning on an alert for caps lock (activates the alert for all three keys: num lock, caps lock and scroll lock). I recommend you try holding the Num Lock key depressed for five full seconds to turn this feature on in any version of Windows. Only manually turn it on if the shortcut is disabled or if you canít use the the Num Lock key for some reason."

General Discussion / Re: New computer!!

Yes, mine is silent as well.  I had not noticed until I brought my Win7 laptop in to connect with the router,  Win10 has some issues with ethernet, apparently.  Anyway  I came in to the room in morning and heard a whirring noise.  Then it dawned on me, my PC is so quiet I was hearing the fan in the laptop :) So far I am very happy with my new machine, but I have had it only a few months, but I do not expect any issues, at least from the  hardware.  Microsoft is another matter :)
