Whatever router you decide on, make sure it uses WI-FI 5, or MU-MIMO .
But now routers are using WI-FI 6, and although we might all have the
Internet speeds available by our ISP, these devices manage the sharing of
available band width better and more efficiently.
Here's a good article:
https://www.cnet.com/news/wi-fi-6-and-what-it-means-for-you-wifi-routers/
But personally, I think that having USB ports for either a backup drive to
access over the network, or to be able to boot Linux throughthe network is
critical.
But Jeff, although you only have 15 things on your router, I foresee all of
us having a lot more things on our personal networks.
And on your router, have you tried a hard reset?
And if you do get a new one, be sure to use the same SSID and password you
currently use so everything will automatically connect to the new router.
Glenn

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.

Hi all
I'm running the latest Windows 10 with Jaws 2019. I'm battling to find a email client which is accessible with Jaws 2019.
I tried MS Office since I have Office 365 and I also tried Windows Mail, but Jaws 2019 seams to have issues with both. Unless I'm missing something, is there maybe settings to be changed or layouts which make these work better with Jaws 2019?

Thank you

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.

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,

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.
