Why would Windows 8 lose my WiFi connection all the time?

The laptop I use runs MS-Windows 8.1, because a few software I have only run on that platform... It uses the WiFi to connect to my LAN. This is how I access the Internet, too.

Only once in a while (very often, if you ask me!), my WiFi would go out. This started to happen more or less when I switched from AT&T to Comcast. I did not really see what could possibly be different and all my other computers would continue to work just fine, including those used with WiFi too.

Many people say that your WiFi is bad or that you should change your WiFi Router... Or maybe when the laptop goes ...

CRON Drupal says "HTTP/1.0 302 Found" about "/cgi-bin/ipdiags.ha" (AT&T U-Verse)

I run a few Drupal website and once per hour I run the cron.php script. I do it only once per hour because nothing changes so often on my websites so it would require faster refreshes.

Once in a while (relatively rarely now) I get a list of errors from CRON saying that the checks failed. The errors look something like this:

HTTP/1.0 302 Found
Location: /cgi-bin/ipdiags.ha
Pragma: no-cache
Content-Type: text/html

<html><meta http-equiv=Refresh content=0;url=/cgi-bin/ipdiags.ha>
<body></body></html>

As you can see, this is a 302 so a temporary error. ...

Hacking my NVG510 device

Earlz found a way to hack the NVG510 device and wrote a page about it: Rooting The NVG510 from the WebUI

He also offers a page that one can use to allow telnet connections to the NVG510 (by default it is locked up.) From there you can allow ssh and tftp connections too.

Note that this means if you are logged in your NVG510 and you click on a link on a bad server, you could actually allow remote connections from anyone! So that's a dangerous back door, although if you are not logged in the Web interface, then it is fine (assuming you do not then log in without thinking!?)

Just in case ...

Setting up my home server with the NVG510 router on AT&T Uverse

My Rant

I got a new router as AT&T forced me to a new product called U-Verse. They are actually forcing all their users to switch to that new systems as the new optic cables are now installed and they probably have a goal to turn off their old infrastructure soon.

The old router I had would generate a gateway on their side. The router was just a router ...

Installing a Nook on my Static IP Network

Barnes and Noble Nook (Electronic device to read books anywhere!)Introduction

Today I was requested by my wife to make her Nook work on our wireless network (she usually can use our neighbors but the connection drops all the time.)

The Nook makes use of DHCP only. So on my static IP address only network, it's kinda not going to work as is! (I must have static IP addresses for security so I can setup a strong firewall.)

So I had to go through a few hoops as follow to get everything to work. Interestingly enough I have not found another website that was talking about such things and their solutions on Linux.

Oh! Wait! Nookers are probably not Linux ...

Belkin G Wireless Router (F5D7234-4)

Today I got a new router, a Belkin G Wireless Router, the F5D7234-4 to be precised.

I have been looking for the IP address of the device for 30 min. It is actually specified on page 26 (i.e. the Alternate Setup Method area). The IP address is 192.168.2.1.

Very annoying since my server is also 192.168.2.1. In other words, I cannot talk with my server to that darn thing!

Well... I'll do it from another computer, but quite annoying, if you ask me!

I have a Cayman for my Internet connection and it uses 198.168.1.254. At least I find that much more practical.

Next I wanted to setup the ...

    In software, scanning means checking the content of memory or a disk for something. In hardware, you have scanners that read the colors on a piece of paper. In the C language, you have a function called sscan() (String Scan,) which I recommend you avoid, but is used to scan the content of a string.
