Currently in my home, due to a thick concrete wall, the corner when my bed
& reading desk is located can't reach the broadband Wifi even if I connect
a Vonets VAR11N repeater below to the Telco's Wifi router:
  https://www.amazon.com/VAR11N-300-Multi-Functional-Wireless-Portable-Repeater/dp/B01199OGK0/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1537179880&sr=1-1&keywords=Vonets+VAR11N&dpID=41v4vdqpDGL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

I then used a USB Wifi dongle plus a 6m USB extender cable to connect to
my laptop with dongle bypassing the thick concrete wall (with direct line-of
-sight to the router) & could now consistently get the Wifi signal:
  https://www.amazon.com/NETGEAR-RangeMax-Wireless-N-Adapter-WNDA3100/dp/B004ZY7THY/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1537179557&sr=8-7&keywords=netgear+rangemax

Q1:
However, for my iPad & my Android phone (which sometimes I read on the
bed), is there something equivalent to the Netgear dongle that I could use
with a USB extender cable?  Ideally one solution for both iPad & Android
instead having to buy separate solutions.

Q2:
I ever seen a metal sticker which claims that once pasted onto the phone
will enhance the range of mobile phones' but lost that article : does this
work & can share an eBay/Amazon link to purchase?

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

There's a miscomm between the merchant who sent me an iPad
model Md513ll/A but I was expecting an iPad Mini 4:

I'm considering keeping it but will need to clarify the specs:

a) is Md513ll/A's front & back cameras resolution 1.2Mpixel & 8Mpixel
    or what is its pixels?

b) is Md513ll/A still being sold by Apple?

c) does Md513ll/A support latest IOS (as of Aug 2018) ?

d) is Md513ll/A  running 64bit or 32bit processor?

e) is the screen of Md513ll/A  a retina ?

Mirror Apple TV on iPad Pro to view MLB-TV

MLB-TV with iPad Pro (iOS 11.4.1) consistently loses WiFi connection with LAN (44.7 mbs / possible 50) iPad rebooting necessary.

Is it possible to mirror Apple TV (MLB-TV OK here) with iPad Pro/Control Panel to view MLB-TV on iPad? Other folks will be watching TV on cable or Netflix/Amazon Prime. This is the reverse of screen mirroring (see Control Panel) as in viewing iDevice on Apple TV.

If so, are there special settings etc.?

I'm choosing between a used iPad Mini 3 vs Mini 4:

The difference in price between both from a refurbished dealer is US$20
(for 16GB, both with Wifi : guess they don't have cellular built in).

Is it worth the US$20 to go for Mini 4?  I heard Mini 4 can go for a later
versions of IOS (security patches & bugs), is this crucial?

Client's iPhone 8 was lost Friday night.  Soon after it was lost they got their iPad and put the iPhone in Lost Mode.  A few hours later, they found the iPhone.  It suffered major damage to the screen.  The screen is black and doesn't appear to be responsive to touch.  It was still online when Lost Mode was disabled on the iPad later that night.  Client upgraded their storage space from 50gbs iCloud (photos hadn't been backed up since June 4th, 2018 because there was no more iCloud storage space) to 200gb iCloud in the hopes that the phone would somehow connect to wifi and the photos would upload to the cloud.

Two days later the iPhone was connected to the client's macbook.  The device was recognized, but iTunes couldn't do anything else because it was still in lost mode.  I went on the iPad and tried to disable lost mode, but the program acted like it never put it in lost mode.  The iPhone was shown as offline now in Find My iPhone app.

I tried iMyFone software to see if I could recover the photos.  It won't get passed the step asking to trust the computer because the screen is unresponsive and the client's thumb on the home button isn't doing anything either.  iMyFone won't work.

The iPhone still makes noises when its connected to a computer and the home button still buzzes when pressed.  It appears to have battery life just fine.  I've tried restarting and hard reset, but doesn't appear nothing happens.

We are trying to recover the photos on the device.  Is …

on my Android phone that has microSD card, I could copy PDF/Word
files into the SD card & read on the phone while travelling ie without
Internet/Cellular mobile data.

How can I do the same on my iPad mini (which does not have 4G/
Mobile Data) while I'm travelling (during long train journeys).
Anyway, I can save the PDF files locally in the iPad?

I could access my gmail while at home but is there any way to save
the PDF attachments while opening the gmail to save the PDF locally?

Don't want to buy an adapter if possible.

I would like to make or record a screen capture presentation on a MacBook Pro and also be able to draw freely with a pencil.  What kind of setup would you recommend?  Is it a good idea or possible to use screen sharing with an iPad and an Apple pencil?  What software/hardware would I need?    What else can I do to accomplish this?

I am Canadian based and have a bunch of email subscribers using a specific domain name (bissegger.ca, my family name).

For these users, email has to work. Hosting is secondary. When email is not working appropriately, I get the call. I'm tired of getting the call, I need a solution...

My main base of subscribers are only using iPad email. This ticket is to find an email provider that can use my domain name (so we don't have to change everyone's email address), that works well with iPad email, blocks most of SPAM - but if possible can host a .NET website.

1. I started out with DiscountASP.net - good .NET services but email settings had to be changed a bunch of times because the ISP would block the email ports, and I had users using several ISPs. Email issues came up a lot, and users received a ton of SPAM.

2. I moved to Namespro.ca, thinking that if I moved upstream to a DNS provider that things would get better - but they got worse. It never worked well with iPad default mail client, and had to install Outlook for iPad, retrain users etc... But was good at blocking SPAM.

The latest issue is that webmail works well (ie: no problem with Namespro), but email is being sent (with no error messages) but not being received by recipients. This means that there is something wrong with iPad or the iPad Outlook client. On all the users at the same time - obviously an iPad or Outlook update....

I am tired of this all, and would love any advice to know if there is a site…

I have an Excel spreadsheet created on my MacBook Pro. The problem exists when attempting to work on the sheet on my iPad. The file is stored in Dropbox and when I click on the file in Dropbox it opens in Preview. However, when I attempt to open the sheet on the iPad in Excel I get the following message on the top of the spreadsheet "Can't upload - We can't merge your changes with those made by someone else. " The file shows 2 of the 5 months of data. Both the MacBook Pro and iPad are up to date.

Any consultant out there that give some advice.

iPad mini (Not sure what version) with new Canon MF236n printer on network.  Canon Buisness print was installed and test print jobs were done successfully.  The printer is brand new, installed yesterday.  Today the client called and said AirPrint results in NO PRINTERS FOUND.  He has attempted several times, and standing near the wireless router even.  I have used the older MF216n with apple devices for years without issue.  In fact this job, I replaced a power failure MF216n device.  What steps should I recommend to end user for troubleshooting?  The printer is working perfectly from all Windows devices (including wireless).

Hi Experts,

I have a few questions re iPads.

I purchased my iPad in 2012, how can I find out which version is this?

What iPad versions exist?

Compared to mine from 2012 and the newest one, what other major changes? I am mostly a Windows person, and I know if the device can support it you can install any software, but I see the new iPad interface are different?

Two things that I wish my iPad did are... 1) Compared to Outlook for Windows, Tasks (which are reminders in iPad) can be caregorized, you can add custom fields, rich text and attachments. 2) Have RDP access to a Windows server. Does the new iPad have these?

Thanks,

Is there any way of bringing up or displaying the iPhone notifications screen (that appears on your iPhone with all of your latest email notifications, Experts Exchange alerts, texts, and other alerts) when you haven't used your iPhone for a while?

For example, I always use my iPhone alarm to wake me up in the morning.

When the alarm goes off I will unlock my iPhone and then turn off all of the iPhone alarms.

Then I will want to go back and view the main notifications screen that contains all of the alerts I have described above (instead of having to go to all of my different email accounts, Experts Exchange app, texts, etc.)

How can I go back to this main notification screen?

I have an iPad with cellular network enabled. The IP address which I get from cellular network is 10.100.20.xx. When I turn my hotspot on and I connect a Win 10 PC to the hotspot, the IP address I get is 172.20.10.xx. From the PC (172.20.10.xx), I can ping to the iPad cellular network i.e 10.100.20.xx but I cannot ping from my iPad to the PC. My aim is to establish RDP connection from iPad to the PC. Can anyone please guide me in the right direction ? Is it even possible ?
