Meshed up

I set up a mesh network in the house this afternoon. Took about 45 minutes. It’s Working great so far — at last we have a single WiFi network that extends throughout the whole house, from corner to corner. We went for the Logitech Orbi model, rather than the more well-known Eero or Google, because the Logitech seemed to be more well-reviewed.

Ask me again in a month if this continues to work well.

Starbucks says it’ll block porn on its public Wi-Fi next year [The Verge]

Starbucks is succumbing to pressure and putting porn filters on its public WiFi. An organization called Enough is Enough has been giving Starbucks grief for failing to protect its customers from porn. Enough is Enough says that public WiFi networks “are attracting pedophiles and sex offenders” and put children at risk. This sounds like bullshit to me from people looking to enrich themselves by scaring parents.
