WiFi setup

We have Virgin internet, their router is underpowered and can't handle sending data across the network (probably same problem for other providers, they all use very cheap hardware). We pay for 350Mbps and were getting about 60Mbps. After improving the setup we get a minimum of 370Mbps, sometimes +400Mbps!

The router is actually doing three things:

  • Modem
  • Router
  • WiFi Access point

We made ours work better by buying a separate router and WiFi access point.

Ok here’s my big list:

  • door frames and mouldings, striping and repainting

Get a heat gun and/or paint stripper and some scraper tools. It’s slow and laborious. Once that’s done you sand it down. Get sanding foam blocks so you can get into recesses. Then, if you’ve stripped back to wood, you need to prime, undercoat then top coat.

  • interior doors, paint or buy new? door handles and hinges.

Doors are pretty expensive, they have to be firesafe too, ours were like 800 a door, that just the door, no handles no hinges. Hinges have to be fire safe too. You probably could just spruce up the doors you have, swapping handles isn’t that big of a deal.

  • general painting tips

Do ceiling first, then walls, tape all edges, use brush for the edges and then roller for main bit. Painting is hard, slow and you’ll never do it as good as a pro (we were ok with that tho)

  • kitchen renovation from scratch

You probably need a pro for this, also having someone help you plan layout and cabinets will mean you end up wi
