Even though an old one still points out the importance of changing passwords often as well as keeping on top of all sights you have accounts on and be aware of breaches.

The 773 Million Record "Collection #1" Data Breach

A good read with a lot of good information. I have been following Troy for over a decade now.

That's strange.  I have the same plugin but mine is version 3.17.1.  It says it's up to date.

How expensive was your Wifi router?

Here is my current router.  ASUS RT-AX86S  And I paid about $150 USD

It's 2.5 Gb in and 1 Gb out on all 4 out ports.  It's very easy to configure and setup.  The software is very intuitive.  Even WiFi 5 has impressive range and it's chock full of useful features to explore.

I can't configure WiFi 6 at the moment with my current setup as I need all 4 out ports and my current modem would require 2 port connectivity to reach 2.5Gb speeds.  I would need a 2.5Gb or faster capable ethernet hub to reach this setup's full potential.  But it's not a priority at the moment as only my Galaxy S21 is WiFi 6 ready.

As I was saying, you need to configure what channel your router is broadcasting on if you're in a congested wifi area.  Simply put, if you have a lot of overlapping wifi signals, you will get limited speed or poor connection range.  Usually both.

The best way to get started is with an app like this.  WIFI Anilyzer  This will let you see what channels have the least activity in the area and change them in your router control panel.  I have a modern ASUS AX router.  So, my control panel looks like the image below.  This is the setting you change.

That is great! Thank you!
