Re: xbox

Returning to my OP. It didn't go well and snapped a small PCB which I think was a wifi card. Bought a second hand xbox x which I love but now seem to be getting more latency problems than I had on my old original xbox one. My broadband is the same and nothing has changed.

I found myself reading this 10 year old thread, quite funny how we all slated the iPad when it was launched, most of the comments at the start of this saying "It will never take off". How wrong we all were.. :roll: :lol:

Remote printing from a MAC

My network knowledge is limited but was wondering how easy is it to print from a MAC to my home printer. I have a printer that I have already added to my local network and is configured as a network printer. Accessing it when away from the home would be handy. Any tips would be welcome

Re: Apple time capsule

Re: Apple time capsule

Thanks for the post but there are no markings on the casting which is why I cannot find the model number. I was hoping I can retrieve it from airport utility some how?

Re: Buying a UPS battery backup

Thanks for the advice, will probably purchase online so the fan noise which is a concern as it will be under my desk will be guess work. Not sure what is considered to be quiet. Most of the ones I have been looking at say they have mains filtering built in.

Thinking of getting the APC Back-UPS Pro 550. Didn't realise they were quite that efficient. :D

Apple time capsule

How can I find the version of an apple time capsule? It's one of the large square flat ones. Trying to find if they are still firmware updated by Apple. And safe to leave connected as a media drive.
