Do note that sometimes things hide behind "more connections" or something called that in there. (...)
Can't see anything like "more connections". Where's that supposed to be found? Greetings, Joe

@timkb4cq: On the network manager icon in the panel you would Right Click -> Edit Connections -> Add -> Mobile Broadband -> Create and fill in the details. (...) Thanks for the hint! I hadn't thought that a "Mobile Broadband" type of network profile profile could be of any use here, as the WiMAX ins...

MX-17.1: How do you connect to WiMAX internet?

@all: Does anyone know how you, using MX-17.1, would connect to a WiMAX internet provider via a WiMAX -Modem (no Wi-Fi router)? Unfortunately nm-connection-editor doesn't list WiMAX as an option. I guess that you'd have to go by PPPoE, but I wouldn't know exactly how to configure that the GUI way. A...

Privacy-friendly solar inverters?

A friend of mine intends to build an off-grid solar system for her weekend cabin and asked me whether I had any knowledge about what hardware to choose (I didn't). I did a little research on the topic, and got the impression that it is not easy to find an inverter (the core component of almost every...

Re: MX-17 issue: "Jabra Speak 510" speakerphone = jitter only (in combination with Twinkle)

ANOTHER UPDATE:

Just tried to figure out what the difference between their "510" models and the "510+" models is. Seems to be that the only difference is that the "+" models are bundled with a Jabra Bluetooth stick.

Can anyone confirm this?

Re: Interesting free apps for Android devices (all from the "F-Droid" non-store)

UPDATE: I'd remove Contact Owner from the initial list : While testing it with LineageOS 15.1 (which is a somewhat cleaned-up Android 8.1 (Oreo) ), I noticed that this app asked for an absurd amount of permissions. F-Droid says that Cache Cleaner is no longer needed if using Android 6.0 or newer. H...

Re: Connecting different types of "Ethernet cables" - possible?

@timkb4cq: Appropriate speed is being autonegotiated, correct? Meaning: Assuming that both cables are intact, and the coupler is intact, too, there's actually nothing that should go wrong (except for having a low speed connection). Correct? Yup! Unless you have disabled auto negotiation on one or mo...

Re: Connecting different types of "Ethernet cables" - possible?

@timkb4cq: For a 10 meter run the minor differences between Cat 5 & Cat 6 (or 7) won't matter. If you have an old Cat 3 cable involved it may limit the speed to 100 mb/s (or even 10 if it has deteriorated over the years). (...) Appropriate speed is being autonegotiated, correct?

(...) There are also crossover couplers that are used to make port to port connections without using a hub or router.

Great hint, thanks! Greetings, Joe
