I think I might be in the market for a new router myself. I got my stimulus payment and figure it's a good way to use some of it.

However, I'm not as concerned with accessibility as I am with performance. I'm experiencing an issue with my current router where the 5 GHz band frequently crashes, disconnecting all the devices and requiring a reboot of the router. I can't figure out what is causing this and am completely baffled as to how to troubleshoot it.

I'm hoping that upgrading to new hardware will resolve the problem. I have about 15 wifi devices connected simultaneously, a third of them are connected to the 5 GHz band.

Since I'm investing in a new router, I'd like to get one that offers wifi 6 support, but I live in a 1 level apartment that's less than 1000 square feet, so I don't need a mesh router. What I want to know is which features should I be considering to support this many devices with room to expand. Does a triband router support more devices? I've read something about streams and the speeds a router will provide. What should I be looking for in a router? Brand recommendations would also be helpful.

Thanks,
Jeff

Norma,

I’m in JAWS 2020 with Office 365.   It’s not operating as smoothly as I would like, but I’m able to read it.   It seems like JAWS loses focus a bit and also sometimes read a bit extra.  There is a shortcut key of Alt A to get to the text box where the address can be typed or appears if you hit the label option after selecting the text you  wanted in your label.   I’m not sure that I have a consistent work around and I’m heading into a meeting, but a quick answer is to use Alt A and either Insert tab or Insert up arrow to read the current line.  It seems that if I type my address into the text field in the label dialog, I can hear as I type, but I am not consistently able to reread what I typed without navigating away, using Alt A, then one of the read line options.   I’ll come back to this conversation later and see if I can help anymore later today.

I also forgot to ask, what label template?    I can try to play with this later today or this evening with JAWS and see what happens for me.  It's helpful to know exactly what it is you're trying to accomplish and how you're going about doing it.

Are you trying to make a page full of a single label?   Since you're hand typing the address I'm presuming either that, or making a single label somewhere on the sheet where you know where the first unprinted label position is for when you feed a partially used sheet through the printer.

Hi group,

 

On my Win 10 PC I’m using J 2020.2003.13 and Word 365. I am making address labels, and when I type or paste text into the address field, I am unable to review the text with Jaws. When I curser around I get nothing. No blank blank or anything, and this is using PC and Jaws cursor. If I use the touch cursor, I can get to where I can see the address on one line, which is better than nothing, I guess. A sighted person can see the address fine, and it prints fine on the label but I really need to be able to review and edit and make sure it’s correct before I print. I don’t recall when this issue began,   but I know it was happening in J 2019. Word is maximized and restarting Jaws doesn’t help. I just tried it with J 2018 with the same result.

I welcome your suggestions. Maybe I should contact FS tech support but often the info I get from this list is much more helpful. 😀   

  

Take care,

Norma

and what is also interesting is that you can more than likely log onto your router by typing this at the run window.
http://192.168.0.1
and if you've not changed anything admin and password are usually the defaults.
Now, I bet none of you have that but that
http://192.168.0.1
will generally get you into your modem. or, 1.0 or 0.0, sometimes.

Also, don't make your SSID/network name something that obviously links it to your physical location.  Although the days of drive-by attempts to connect to open networks is long gone, it still makes sense not to use a SSID/network name like 123Main if you live at 123 Main Street.   Pick something immediately identifiable by you, but not obvious to the outside world.  As an example, my partner is a big fan of Japanese maples, one of my former SSIDs/network names was acer-palmatum, the botanical name for Japanese maples.

The problem is that the modems most ISP’s provide and which are also WiFi routers have to have a password because a large majority of people would never set one and that would result in a huge liability if, for example, they end up connecting cameras in their house and then somebody could very easily access them via an unprotected network. A lot of these Internet of things devices are insecure enough as it is.

If you buy a router from one of the known brands such as Netgear, Linksys, Cisco, D-Link, Asus and so on there will be a default password which often is “password” or “admin” or something like thart.

If you don’t know the default password of your router but you know the brand you can simply Google something like “What is the default password for a Netgear router” and you’ll find the answer.

This of course means you absolutely have to change the password to something a lot more secure because if you can Google what the password is so can anybody else and the people who make it their business to hack into home networks probably don’t even have to Google it as they’ll know the default passwords of most brands by heart.

Hi.

A month ago I purchased a Netgear combination router and cable modem. You can use your browser of choice to access it. Sounds like you just need a router with WI-FI in it. I’m quite pleased with what I have.

My WIFI router has bit the dust.  Does anyone have any recommendations for a router with an accessible interface with JAWS?

I find that the Seeing AI ap is great for reading things like this.
 
Love in Christ

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

The thing i find annoying with any of the wifi modems i get lately the password is already turned on by default to access the modem settings.

In the past it was blank now you need sighted help to read the password under the modem.

cheers Michael.

It’s fantastic if you happen to have a mobile device, however they do require the Google Wifi app. The app itself provides everything in a fantastic and screen reader friendly area, however, and there isn’t an unlabeled button found.  However if your specific requirement is PC, unfortunately out of luck there, which is odd to me.

 

 

Hope that helps somewhat.

I am quite partial to the higher-end Netgear routers but also had an Asus one and a Cisco and I don’t think I had a router in the last 10 years which didn’t get accessed via a web interface and where I couldn’t use the interface.

Too bad you guys are I think all in the US, I have a Netgear Nighthawk X6 R8000 triband router which I’d gladly sell for a good price, but shipping would probably be expensive.

I have switched to the Netgear Orbi mesh system both at home and, at my retail store I use the Orbi Pro/business version and this Nighthawk and my Asus RT-AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Router for which I paid over $300 Canadian are just sitting on a shelf.

moderated Jaws problem making labels in Word 365

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi group,

 

On my Win 10 PC I’m using J 2020.2003.13 and Word 365. I am making address labels, and when I type or paste text into the address field, I am unable to review the text with Jaws. When I curser around I get nothing. No blank blank or anything, and this is using PC and Jaws cursor. If I use the touch cursor, I can get to where I can see the address on one line, which is better than nothing, I guess. A sighted person can see the address fine, and it prints fine on the label but I really need to be able to review and edit and make sure it’s correct before I print. I don’t recall when this issue began,   but I know it was happening in J 2019. Word is maximized and restarting Jaws doesn’t help. I just tried it with J 2018 with the same result.

I welcome your suggestions. Maybe I should contact FS tech support but often the info I get from this list is much more helpful. 😀   

  

Take care,

Norma

I've never heard of that, unless it came from an ISP.
