More HiBook Labs News! I Spoke a Bit Too Soon, The Comfast Dual Band Adapter Arrived This Afternoon!

Yes! It Finally Arrived, Works Great!

So we are once more in business with testing tablet related stuff! I know I mentioned in my previous post that the product was yet to arrive, well that was before I arrived home and found it in today’s mail!

It is currently plugged into the Hi12 which is running the server and connected at 433mb/s. Of course I turned off the internal WiFi, and the VMWare server picked it right up, no need to change any IP’s at this point, which is good.

There will be video later and a lot more news, but right off the bat I can tell you that if you have a need for wireless ac band speeds, this little gizmo will do the trick and currently it is on sale for $9.99! Included in the package was and English language guide and a driver CD for older systems.

Obviously it will get tested on the HiBook and perhaps even the Zotac (pointless I know, since it already has an dual-band wireless and two  fast 1gb/s Ethernet ports. But I will certainly run some tests using the USB-C port and micro-USB port on the Hibook and the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port and the micro-USB port on the Hi12.

So first of all, I checked the shipping label and this may explain the delay. This little tiny gizmo was shipped from Baku, Azerbaijan! Yeah, I had to look it up also, and below is a map of where it is located…click for a big one in a new tab.

This thing arrived from the coast of the Caspian Sea!

So I thought I would give folks a heads up and say, stay tuned for much info!

It Is Saturday and Time For The HiBook News: This Edition – Row Boats From the Netherlands Are Slow

Perhaps the Row Boat Sank?

Today makes it 33 days since my Comfast dual band wireless adapter was shipped by Gearbest from the Netherlands (according to my order info). My only conclusion is that folks in Europe are still sending packages via row boat or sailing ships.

Lets look at the example of the dirt cheap mouse I ordered from Amazon a few months back. It arrived from Shenzhen, China in 8 days. Th current item is no bigger than a thumb drive and still has yet to make it to my mailbox.

Based on experience, stuff from China never takes more than 18 days to arrive by mail. This being the first time I have ever ordered and had shipped from Europe, I can only reach one conclusion and that is those row boats from Europe are mighty damned slow!

I sure would like to be running some tests on this gizmo, but hard to do without the gizmo in hand! The irony here of course is that I ordered from a Chinese retailer and it was shipped from a European warehouse, which is half the distance away and it  has yet to arrive.

Perhaps when I arrive home today it will be there, but I am guessing that it won’t be. By the way, the server here, running on a tablet, has over 500 posts! (It would have more but no one registers and posts).

That is all for now,

Tim

The HiBook News: Today’s Edition – Still Waiting For My Wireless ac Dongle

So once again I am at my top secret location having lunch and typing a post from the Hi12/Logitech keyboard combo. I really don’t have much to report on as far as testing goes. The HiBook is still the primary server here and the Hi12 comes online in the evenings.

I am still waiting for my little USB wireless ac dual band adapter to arrive from the Netherlands. Apparently it is being sent via rowboat since we are coming up on 27 or so days in transit.  I really am eager to test this little accessory and see how it works. It may or may not be the best little investment I have ever made. I picked it up for $10.69 but it is currently available for $9.99 on Gearbest.

Perhaps the postman will surprise me and it will be in the mailbox when I arrive home today so I have something to test on both tablets this weekend. Because  other than reporting on the fact that the Hi12 and HiBook are both working perfectly I really don’t have much in the way of amazing news.

That is all for now,

Tim
