    So I just got my 1GB ATT high speed internet service, readying myself for MS2020 release 😁. However, while the service is enormously better than my previous DSL, I'm still only able to get about 360mbs download speed on most devices. I know for the most part that a 1GB download can only be accomplished with a direct connect. But since that is not an option right now I'm trying to figure out whats the next best thing of the two options I have:

    1, Should I get an ATT extender that would be upstairs near my PC and other office devices (Will this increase my speeds or just my range?)


    2:Should I by a faster, better, more reliable Router/Modem that is compatible with my ATT device  (Model# BGW210-700)?

    Just for the record, my Asus Maximus X code wifi device supports up to 875mbs



    Hi, We are running an SQ-6 desk at my church, and we have a Netgear R6120 wifi router. From the beginning, we have had nothing but trouble with MixPad and SQ4YOU both having frequent dropouts. On any given Sunday, MixPad will “lose connection” about a dozen times during the course of an hour and a half service Piso Wifi Vendo. The musicians are frequently complaining that their monitor controls keep getting booted off. I know this is a router issue. Clearly it doesn’t have a consistent signal, or can’t handle the bandwidth of several phones and an iPad. I also know from reading elsewhere that the apps are finicky about poor signal strength. So my question is: What is the best router for consistent quality connections with our system? Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    Hi, I'm flying the A2A Cherokee on FSX-SE and XRP GTN 750. I haven't flown an ILS for a few months I have flown RNP approaches with no problems.

    Today I flew an ILS approach into EGTK. Everything worked fine until I was capturing the ILS. The GTN went from GPS to VLOC automatically as it should,  but the HSI flags showed no ILS and no GS.  business etiquette school

    I have just flown an RNP approach and everything worked fine lateral and vertical guidance. have I missed a setting somewhere? 

    Also the Visual approach gives a message "Vertical Guidance not available"

    I am also facing the same issue.

    Hello everyone,I have been flying in FSX for several months. PC hardware is excellent, and I'm suing the Saitek X-52. My keyboard is the Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 3000 (v2.0).Yesterday, during my descent into HPN after a very regular flight, I noticed some problems in the simulator. I have summarized them below:- F5-F8 no longer control the flaps (no function whatsoever)- F10 now lowers the flaps, mysteriously- F9, F11, and F12 no longer have any function, and I can't change the view- G key will not lower the landing gearThere are probably other problems that I have not specifically noticed. I have no idea what caused this to suddenly occur. There are no problems controlling the airplane, though I'm now stuck in "Locked Spot" mode.I spent some time in the "Control" settings, and everything appears to be correct. I reset to defaults to be safe, but nothing changed. I went so far as to uninstall and reinstall FSX, but I'm still having the same issue.There must be something I've done wrong. Can anyone point out what it is? I can't wait to get back to flying.Thanks,jrosstx

    Hi all!

    It's been long since the last time I played FSX, however after refitting my computer with a brand new SSD and fresh install, I thought I could also upgrade from the boxed to the Steam version of FSX. I had already made a lot of research about the advantages (and disadvantages) of the latest version published by Dovetail, and bought it a few weeks ago. As obvious as it may sound, I had to have all my addon aircraft and scenery from nearly 7 years of simming into FSX:SE.

    For the most addons, all runs fine, however, I've experienced a few issues with some of them, particularly Tom Ruth's aircraft (DC-10, L-1011, PA 320 series, etc). These aircraft form the backbone of the fleet I regularly fly with, and I really want to fly with no problems at all, but:

    - When I press the SPACE+MOUSE binding, the mouse starts flickering between the crosshair and the pointer;
    - When pressing CTRL+Y, SHIFT+(number), Y, O, ALT, the binding not always work, as if windows switched between FSX and another program, or desktop.

    I've searched through the web and found out that disabling the Steam in-game overlay would solve the problem, which it did in most part, however I sporadically find myself in this problem again and again, particularly when switching from desktop to FSX. Maybe I am missing something here, and I know this can be solved, but I already posted this on Steam and got no response for almost a week... I've also heard that it may be something related to random keyboard language switching, but since the CTRL and SHIFT keys don't work I don't think so.

    Hi Gerald, All,

    Regarding checklist options. As documents are not including all the advanced options and searching/finding on AVSIM is difficult, pls can you summarize these for me?

    I have done my homework and found the //1 - //7 to determine who responds. <-- (documented in How to create custom checklist.rtf)

    Also found the single underscore "_ set"  -> speak what you want --> "2992 set"

    I think I have found that all text within () is omitted --> is that correct?

    What about if you use double underscore or even tripple ( as found in TFDi_B717_Check.txt) cheqmark?

    We do not know what we do not know.. What other gold pieces you have to add to the list?


    Looking forward to hear from you (all).


    I saw another thread here that discussed what to bring to the field. It seems that I'm carrying more and more with me every time I go. One of the items mentioned was a pre-flight checklist. Sounds like a good idea, especially since I'm often setting up a rocket for each of my three kids at the same time I'm setting up my rocket(s) for launch. I'm bound to forget something.

    Anyone have a pre-flight checklist they use? I'm guessing it should be fairly simple.

  5. Hi guys, Anyone got any FPS statistics on either of these? I'm building a workstation and as far as I can see the 2700x is the better CPU but the 1900x can be upgraded to the more powerful threadrippers... How poor is the 1900x Vs the 2700x? Best Motherboard For Ryzen 7 5800x Is it worth taking the hit in CPU performance so I can upgrade later down the line? Any help would be much appreciated!

  6. Hello! I have become interested in game development and I have been looking at Unreal Engine for VR Development, and I have some questions.

    1. What is the best program to create low poly assets for unreal?

    2. Is there a good tutorial for making the camera and hands collide with walls and objects?

    3. Is there a good tutorial for making workable buttons and levers for VR controllers?
