SOME custom key fobs to finish off first thing then it’s into the studio for a session with a Zoom guitar student.
BT have switched us over to ‘digital voice’ – fine and dandy, but the BT SmartHuib is pretty crap and we upgraded our router to a Netgear mesh to give better coverage in the garden and office. It also has a lot of extra functionality, including ability to set up a secure guest network and manage decided connected to the network. I have the SmartHub to a pal in Glasgow when I sorted out their internet problems a year or two ago.
However, BT’s digital voice requires the phone handset to be p[lugged into the router…and must be a SmartHub 2! My bad, really, as BT ‘own’ all the equipment they supply (although I’ve never heard of anyone having tor return anything)…so for sure they weren’t about to send me another. To make matters worse, these routers retail at £200 on BT’s website. Extortionate price for a piece of crap…! Anyway, Margaret found one own Amazon for £30 and today’s the day I have to try and integrate it into our network.
It’s a major pain in the ass trying to get routers to connect to each other and function they way I need them to. Eventually I get the phone working and the Netgear router pushing out connectivity. Some of our shit’s not working tho’….
Meantime, the sun’s out and I take the opportunity to spread some weedkiller and fix the squirrel feeder before hitting the studio and knocking up some artwork for the upcoming show at Kilmaronock Old Kirk on 14 July.
After dinner I spend a few hours getting some of the other stuff on our network working…still some more to sort tomorrow!
