RE: Play back content to laptop via HDMI?

I have an Android streaming box and I connect it via HDMI to my TV. I would guess you could do the same thing connecting it to your laptop. There may be some software required to run on the laptop to accomplish this? Ask the person you purchased the Android streaming box from.

RE: Dell Laptop Touch pad issue

When my Dell laptop started acting up, the problem was a swollen battery. The battery lies beneath the touchpad and can cause it to behave wonky. Rub you fingers lightly over the touchpad and feel if it is completely flat. If you feel any degree of it being raised, you probably need to replace the battery.

RE: RV Park Wi-Fi Issues

That may help a little, BUT if they have too many users for the amount of bandwidth they have, it will be slow everywhere. To see if the park's available bandwidth is the problem, run speedtests before everyone gets up, and after most have gone to bed (if you're a night owl), and during peak usage times. Run the test 3 consecutive times and average the results at the various times. To do the test on your phone, turn off cellular (so you're not testing your cellular speed) and go to www.Speedtest.net On your laptop, simply attach to their WiFi and run the same tests. Note that the speedtest is .net - not .com

RE: AT&T Netgear AirCard 815S - Tethering to laptop

SOME of the Nighthawks (815s) have been reported to continue working when they are plugged in and then the battery is removed. . . but not all of them will work this way. What you can do to prolong battery life is to remove the rear cover while it's plugged in. That keeps the battery cooler and delay the battery from swelling.

RE: AT&T Mobley has Died. Need replacement Router

Several years ago AT&T put something in the Mobley code that prevented you from simply swapping the Mobley account SIM into another device. I can't remember the details, but you had to obtain the PUK code(s) from AT&T and then follow a specific regime to make the Mobley SIM work in another device. I did this, but can't recall the steps. Google and see what you can find. Don't buy another device and assume the Mobley SIM will work in it. Having said this, those people that swapped SIMs before this change are OK.

RE: Microsoft mail - Can send, can't receive

Are you using Outlook.com or the Outlook program that comes with Microsoft 365 (previously Office 365)? They are two totally different animals.

RE: Small wireless laser printer/scanner/copier

If size is important I'd look at a ink jet. you'll likely find many more choices. Even then small size = $$$$$ Yes, but we want to keep this in the RV and so often the ink jet cartridges dry out when not used for a while.

RE: Small wireless laser printer/scanner/copier

I have the HP LaserJet Pro M29W that Gdetrailer referenced above and am very happy with it. Great output, low cost consumables and it does scan in color but only prints in Black. Thank you so much for the review. I appreciate it and will probably order this one.

RE: Small wireless laser printer/scanner/copier

HP Laserjet Pro M29W is most likely going to be about the smallest you are going to find that has scanning built in. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/617HB%2Be-qTL._AC_SL1500_.jpg height=300 width=300 Found HERE From what I am reading it does scan in color, but it is only monochrome (B&W) for printing. Due to the size, the input paper tray cannot store paper when closed. Thank you very much.

Small wireless laser printer/scanner/copier

I'm looking for a reasonably small wireless laser printer/scanner/copier. I can't seem to find one that meets all the criteria. Does anyone know of one that meets ALL of the above criteria? Thanks
