Re: Air conditioner unit making annoying bubbling noise

Bubbling sound is usually due to leak (Low refrigerant) , before sealing the leak, vacuuming the cooper pipes (this is important) is required. I had a similar problem with my AC cooling unit (Indoor unit) and it would make a lot of bubbling and blasting, a lot of tech guys looked into it and finally...

Re: Router hangs when desktop Lan connection in use.

OK, now I am really confused. You said a few posts back that you were still having problems when you bypassed the router?

Have you tired switching to another LAN port on the router to rule out a connection issue on a particular port. No, i have not done that. I will try it today. Does it only hang when it's passing through lots of data (like Netflix), or will it hang regardless when the hard-wired PC is on? No, it han...

Re: Router hangs when desktop Lan connection in use.

How hot is the router getting? Is it dusty? If you point a fan at it does the problem take longer to show up? Router is clean and doesn't get hot at all, infact its in Air-conditioned room. I will however try to point a fan at it see if it changes the situation. I am also currently looking for a La...

The technology I really like recently are the one's that have multiple fan speeds or variable. "Multi-stage" I think it might be called. That lets you run the fan at more than just full-speed. I did some research and found that invertor AC have variable compressor speed, so when they are ...
