I don't get it. It's like you've never done anything to do with security ever before.

Are you trying to say it's impossible for MS to get your data because you're running a software firewall ON TOP OF their proprietary operating system?

"They can but they won't" is a dumb argument. That's trusting them, and if you're going to do there there's no point to your exercise.

Move to Japan a years ago with my full tower case, monitor, mechanical keyboard brought along.

All I did is stuck everything in a huge luggage without taking apart hard disk and filled up the remaining empty space with clothes as shock-dampening material.

My PC arrived undamaged and worked perfectly well which I'm using it to type this post right now.

cas and psu in suitcase, put the rest in your carry-on luggage.
>>
>>49305833
assuming self built, just disconnect everything, and stash it in the box the case came in. maybe take out the gpu so it doesnt break the pcie slot.

otherwise, shove it in a suitcase, using clothes as dampening material. be warned: last time i did that, the computer worked like 3 times before it died completely for no reason.

Soon it will be illegal to install OpenWRT and DD-WRT, etc. RIP freedoms.

>The new FCC rules are in effect in the United States from June 2nd 2015 for WiFi devices such as Access Points. They require to have the firmware locked down so End-Users can’t operate with non-compliant parameters (channels/frequencies, transmit power, DFS, …).
>In response, WiFi access point vendors start to lock down firmwares to prevent custom firmwares (such as OpenWRT) to be installed, using code signing, etc. Since the same type of devices are often sold world wide, this change does not only affect routers in the US, but also Europe, and this will also effect wireless communities.

Best depends on what you need the system to do, and how cheap do you want to go? You can get routers from thrift stores and yard sales for a dollar...

But that's the list if you want to look. TP-Link and Trendnet are two of the economy brands.

Actually, the broadcast power limit for WiFi is 36dBm, which, with a 1dB antenna is the equivalent to 4W. Yes. 4W.

The problem with the open firmware routers is not the power level, but rather certain frequencies. Some 5GHz routers are capable of transmitting in a few telemetry system bands, and this is VERY BAD. Couple this with consumer equipment broadcasting equipment, high wattage ends up to weird, dirty signals that slip down into other bands and can raise the noise floor for those systems significantly.

Now, for most people, this isn't a problem.

But, if you live near an airport... you see where this is headed.

This is all because some of you mother fuckers kept dropping your signals down into the 4GHz ranges because it had stronger propagation qualities.

Thanks for ruining it for everyone else, fucktards.

>they cannot legally use GPL-software anymore
yeah, that's going to be great. enjoy your vxWorks-tier shit.
>>
>>49305531

I believe that I heard that the routers are supposed to be allowed to broadcast on higher power on the upper channels, but not the lower channels, but yeah, that's a software restriction, so...it can indeed cause problems.

Hence why a lot of NICs are limited to even lower power amounts than the specs may require.
