  • We've gotten a few calls about this article and what routers are best, etc. The Archer C7 is an excellent router, but many new routers all use the same chipsets inside and are less expensive. Also, beware the advice to always 'stay on 5GHz'. While it is true that 5GHz is faster and sees less interference than 2.4GHz (which is what EVERYone is one), it also has a shorter range (2.4GHz is better at getting through obstructions than 5GHz). So if your home or business structure allows for strong 5GHz signal throughout – great. Otherwise you may need to move your router or use 2.4GHz. Wireless extenders are also an option be can be touchy to configure and use reliably.

  • There is no such thing as a free lunch. Free software generally is free because the developers monetize it by selling info to advertisers or bundling additional adware into the installers. That's not to say free software is bad – a lot of it is fantastic. Just know there are tradeoffs. Not sure what antivirus is right for you?

  • Microsoft is downloading Windows 10 in the background, even if you haven't chosen to upgrade yet (it won't install until you agree). For most this means little beyond losing 3-6GB of disk space. But for anyone on metered Internet connections (MiFi or an ISP with a data cap), this could surprise you.
