This Wi-Fi router with a 4-antenna array can blast a signal all over your home

Any word on how it “phones home” like many other routers (looking at you, NetGear)?

With its 4 antennae (count them - FOUR!!!) I’m sure it phones home very effectively.

I say ‘give me 6 or 8 antennae’. Let the antenna wars begin.

Please. While you rely on your pitiful eight antennae array, I will have no less than six MILLION antennae. We will become all powerful, and homes thousands of miles away will pick up our signal! Mwa ha ha… wait, what? The FCC is calling? Signal interference? Shit, I’ve got another meeting, gotta run…


You mean like this one BB was hocking hawking 3 days ago?

eta: til


Is this your car?


So this one was a late entry to the antenna wars and already lost. Feeble.

Hock is used when someone pawns something they hope to get back, but I’ve never seen (or didn’t notice) “hawk” written to mean informal sales. In the US the words are pronounced the same and I assumed spelled the same

It is not unusual in UK to see signs on domestic properties’ doors saying "No Hawkers, No Circulars"
