Windows being Windows: solving hardware problems


#1

Turning on WiFi disables external display:

Yesterday, my V couldn’t find any 5Ghz networks, and connecting to a 2.4Ghz network would disconnect my eGPU (and the display it was connected to).

I managed to fix it - BY UPDATING THE FIRMWARE ON MY ROUTER.

Go figure.

Just another day in windows troubleshooting. 10/10 would recommend.

If I understood it correctly:

  • 2.4 GHz WiFi --> Incompatible with eGPU
  • 5.0 GHz WiFi --> Incompatible with your router (before the firmware update)

Windows is really something else… I remember I had this issue where I couldn’t add my university account to my V(but I could still access my uni Onedrive) and nothing either me or the University IT staff did fixed it. In the end I had to reinstall Windows for it to be fixed :slight_smile:
