I had my house wired with Cat 6. WiFi is great for noncritical networking but Cat 6 is better. I am going to guess that 6 MHz has less ability to penetrate walls than 5 MHz.

And if they have any brains they don't spend $400 for a router to do it...

JAB CreationsAmerica and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA criminal organization that overthrew America in 1871 both have had little to no respect for people serving in the armed forces.
I did my time in the US army before it went politically correct ('82 - '86) and those four years got me free medical and schooling.

The author of that piece printed in the WAPO rag left out the part where Biden was good friends with KKK member Robert Byrd. In fact Biden gave the eulogy at his funeral. If the govt. wants to start prosecuting criminals then it can start with the politicians who gave BLM & Antifa a green light to riot, loot, burn down entire city blocks while assaulting and even murdering innocent bystanders for literally months on end.

Ah yes because in order to get the things that every developed country has you need to go die for oil companies at 18.

Afganistan was not about oil. It was about the other most exported commodity worldwide (drugs).

In July 2000, Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, collaborating with the UN to eradicate heroin production in Afghanistan, declared that growing poppies was un-Islamic, resulting in one of the world's most successful anti-drug campaigns. The Taliban enforced a ban on poppy farming via threats, forced eradication, and public punishment of transgressors. The result was a 99% reduction in the area of opium poppy farming in Taliban-controlled areas, roughly three quarters of the world's supply of heroin at the time. The ban was effective only briefly due to the deposition of the Taliban in 2002.
