    Here is an issue with solar I never really thought of. Thoughts? https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelshellenberger/2018/05/23/if-solar-panels-are-so-clean-why-do-they-produce-so-much-toxic-waste/#9624443121cc

    Howdy Doug. How long have you had it installed? Have you been able to estimate if you are on-track for at 5 year ROI? I know it will be hard to determine what winter will bring but just wondering what your overall impression is. If you don't have batteries, is the AC fed directly to your...

    Home Mesh Network With OpenWrt?

    There is another T-Mobile RT-AC68U for sale at Hardforum if Piyono or anyone else is interested in using it in flashing it to Merlina and using it in a AIMesh setup. https://hardforum.com/threads/fs-t-mobile-asus-ac1900-wifi-hotspot-router-one-plus-3t-64gb-unlocked-gskill-8gb-ddr.1985727/

    Bathroom fan replacement (v. quieter + more CFM)

    I know this is late, but in case anyone is interested in a fan, I looked at a ton of them before I settled on replacing my bathroom fan (that was a rattle trap and died) with this Panasonic model. I'm really happy with it. Much much better than the Broan fan that it replaced...

    Home Mesh Network With OpenWrt?

    I just had a flashback to our CS days, Piyono...just pay for shipping and you can have it for free if you decide to try the AI Mesh route. I would like to know how well it works as I have never tried it. :cool:

    Home Mesh Network With OpenWrt?

    Actually...I just remembered, I still have one I am no longer using if you want to buy it. $50 + shipping from Sterling Heights, MI. :). The 2nd one is at my Mom & Dad's house.

    Home Mesh Network With OpenWrt?

    Yes I did that w/o any issues to two of them and running the latest Merlin on them as well..

    Home Mesh Network With OpenWrt?

    You can get a couple of RT-AC68U routers and run Merlin's latest firmware on them with AI Mesh enabled. I have not tried it but it seems like it would be a pretty low cost solution. I run Merlin on my RT-AC86U and have an Orbi system I got for free (from beta testing). Note: the 68U is a...

    Howdy Doug- IIRC you live out East and get a fair amount of snow. I'm in Michigan and I have a couple large portions of my roof facing directly south. How much efficiency is lost to snow covering the panels? I am kind of interested in looking at solar but assumed it would not be cost...

    Maybe this field trial firmware update I received is related to your issue?

    Netgear Arlo = bugs, bugs, and more bugs

    Lol! I was thinking maybe there could be some connectivity issues between Oz and wherever the Arlo servers are, but you never know, the situation is shitty, so maybe the Corilois factor is in effect! It'd be interesting to see some stats on the connection (trace route, ping, stability)...
