The cheapest way would be to get a 3g dongle and put it on a stick outside
It should help the reception a lot.
You dont need a 2nd sim card if you connect it to the phone

Since everyone is talking like a fag and their shit's all retarded, i'm just going to give you the straight dope, OP. Check out cryptostorm, it's a VPN(or encrypted packet routing service, as they like to call themselves) that makes use of "access tokens" that are sold in a decentralized manner, and also decouples your payment information from your authentication with SHA512 hashing. They don't require anything but a payment, no billing information, no registration, no databases of customers, no logging, no bullshit either. Been using them since their inception and i've had nothing but incredible speeds and some pretty great security on their end.

Check out UBCD, there is like 6 programs for backups. There is native windows backups as well. these are not really trusted. As for UBCD, simply have a 40 gig, or a way to save a backup. Like a external drive.

tl;dr: Every device using WPA2 is attackable and has to be updated. Good luck with that. Ethernet Jesus related.

https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/10/severe-flaw-in-wpa2-protocol-leaves-wi-fi-traffic-open-to-eavesdropping/

>Researchers have disclosed a serious weakness in the WPA2 protocol that allows attackers within range of vulnerable device or access point to intercept passwords, e-mails, and other data presumed to be encrypted, and in some cases, to inject ransomware or other malicious content into a website a client is visiting.

>The proof-of-concept exploit is called KRACK, short for Key Reinstallation Attacks. The research has been a closely guarded secret for weeks ahead of a coordinated disclosure that was scheduled for 8am Monday, East Coast time. A website disclosing the vulnerability said it affects the core WPA2 protocol itself and is effective against devices running Android, Linux, and OpenBSD, and to a lesser extent macOS and Windows, as well as MediaTek Linksys, and other types of devices. The site warned that attackers can exploit the flaw to decrypt a wealth of sensitive data that's normally encrypted by the nearly ubiquitous Wi-Fi encryption protocol.

>"This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on," researcher Mathy Vanhoef, of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium wrote. "The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites."

I just bought a new laptop with windows 10. The OS is using like 20 gigs plus and yet still to do basic things I need to download programs off the internet. For example, I'd like to just reassign or disable my num lock key. It is right next to the delete button and I keep hitting it and I will literally never want my number pad to not be functional which happens often because I keep hitting the num lock key.

Now to do this I'm finding that I have to download some program. Now all the sites I go to seem sketchy as fuck and I get hits from malware blockers that redirect me away from some of them. I've seen sites that are named suspiciously similar to the official site for some project boosted higher in google results, review sites that push suspicious looking downloads and all sorts of high jinks.

I should be able to go to some site where windows has approved software that is virus free, but the windows store has nothing that will do even this basic task.

How do I ensure that what I download is from a legitimate malware-free source?

Hello /tech/ I am curious which ISP you all prefer and can help me make the right choice choosing one. I do a lot of online gaming and surfing the web. I only desire internet not TV+internet. I've heard mixed views between U-verse and Xfinity and am unsure where exactly to go and if there are better options for the price. Thanks in advance, /tech/!

Boosting Cell Phone Signal

So, I get my internet as part of my unlimited data cell phone plan, using my phone as a wifi hotspot and picking it up with my pc. But where I live I get shit cell reception. Mountains and all that.

Before anyone suggests I change how I get the internet, I live out in bumfuck egypt and there is no cable, no dsl, no wifi. This is my only choice other than satellite plans with unacceptable data caps. So it's this or go back to dial up.

Anyway, I figured that maybe if i could get more than two bars in the room where my computer is, my download speeds would improve.

I have heard of various signal booster products, like on amazon, with a greatly varying price range, so I thought I would ask people on a tech board about it.

Have any of you ever had to solve this problem for yourselves, and how did you do it? Did you buy a signal booster, and how well did it work? Was it worth the money, and easy to install and use?

At the moment, I'm pretty new to wireless, wi-fi, cell phones, and high speed internet in general, unfortunately, and I gotta start somewhere.

While I do know some of that basic stuff, I really do appreciate seeing someone explain beginner stuff without derision. Too many people act like pricks nowadays just because someone else doesn't yet know what they know, especially online, so it's nice to see you and the other posters in this thread not doing that shit. I've been having a shitty day, and that fact lessens it a bit.

And yeah, even when I'm getting the worst download speed I typically get, it's still way better than when I was using dial up. The dial up here was terrible, like, "you're pleased to get 8kb/s on a download" terrible.


>>121376
Videos, Steam stuff, mods, you name it. I'd like to live as what has become a normal person, with the ability to buy games digitally, keep my games and other software updated, get instructions for and answer questions about things online while the situation is still relevant. Maybe even play online multiplayer on occasion.

Sometimes I do watch or download youtube stuff at low res, but sometimes a lot is lost in the lowering of the detail.




Anyway, my main thing is that Verizon has me for around $80 a month, and after my 15gb limit on 4g speeds for mobile hotspot data, i'm supposed to be getting downgraded to ~600kb/s download speed, which would be ok, if I actually got that. The best I get is around 100-120kb/s. Since it's my only real choice, I'm just looking to more get my money's worth out of it.

I'm posting here again mainly to thank the people who posted after I already popped in and said thanks, and to give an update on the situation.

I did some checking into a network extender that samsung offered, that i could get through verizon, but discovered that you had to have a seperate broadband connection for it to be hooked up to to boost the cell signal. so that's out. I got told to check out a place called "weboost", which I'm doing (very expensive), and it looks like it might work.



>>121378
I'll look into those, too.



Thanks again to everyone trying to help, and especially for helping without being a dick.

Depends on your router. Clients is likely how many devices are connected to your computer. Your connection, a smartphone, her connection.

Try this is your router like way out dated. you can check the 'build version'. If it's out dated you can flash an updated version which is basically easy. Often just pressing a button to update on some routers.

The 'port scan' may just be some random nothing. https://www.grc.com/shieldsup to see if any ports are open on your computer. It's as basic a start as you can get to start. If all is green then it should be cool.

numbers like 209.143.252.20 are IP addresses. This would translate to quaker.com

What router do you have? poke around. Get a newer router. Most routers can translate like above so you can see what addresses are being accessed.

Sort of depends. I rate this shit by potential audience. While some platforms may be more robust and easier to use, if the video isn't seen, what good is it? You don't want to be uploading to some obscure, bottom of the Google search page, platform even if it is the best technically out there. Unless of course that is your audience. Usually the Youtube and FB live streams are where the viewers are at.

Depends on where you live, whether your ISP cares, and whether rightsholders are sitting on the torrents. You can go a long time without getting a copyright strike, and then if your ISP changes policy and you're downloading something where the rightsholder is really protective, suddenly you're getting them.

Never gotten one with my VPN on. Also, less common sources and protocols can keep you safer.
