WtfEvenIsExistence,

Typical boring worksheets that schools give to kids… 🤦‍♂️

WtfEvenIsExistence,

They did. They reduced the government down to 5 people in weird robes.

WtfEvenIsExistence,

Don’t worry, I don’t live in a red state but also get this same message when trying to sleep

WtfEvenIsExistence,

Wait what? Noooo please don’t leave us 😥

WtfEvenIsExistence,

Great. Because most of the people listening to this bs are republicans and I’ll laugh at their graves. 🤣

Conservatives approve policies to limit transgender health care for minors, end race-based hiring | CBC News (www.cbc.ca)

Conservative delegates voted Saturday to add some new social conservative policies to their policy playbook including a proposal to limit access to transgender health care for minors and to do away with vaccine mandates.

WtfEvenIsExistence,

But I love to exclude people

People who I exclude: Fascists, Tankies, Billionaires, Corporate executives, etc…

WtfEvenIsExistence,

I’ve been using the internet since around 2015 with both Chrome and Firefox (I switch in between frequently), I never have to install plug-ins except for like flash games, but normal sites work fine without any plugins.

WtfEvenIsExistence,

Their gateway (basically a modem + router in one device) is to free to us because there’s a government subsidized program in my area that lets you get cheap internet and with that cheap internet plan also includes $0 per month equipment rental, so it’s free as long as we qualify for the subsidized plan.

Nobody in my household wants to spend extra money on a router that could impact speed and is redundant, since we already have one, and I certainly aint spending extra money on a router. Plus, it’s extra ewaste.

But yea I get your point, most people don’t have government subsidized internet like I do, so buying your own equipment is probably a better choice.

WtfEvenIsExistence,

Ctrl+W? Am I too much of a computer noob to understand?

Edit: Oh, just searched it, it closes a window? I don’t normally use shortcuts so I don’t know what most shortcuts are.

WtfEvenIsExistence,

That’s around the time I got my first phone, I feel too young to be here.

The xfinity gateway (modem + router in one device)

10.0.0.1 is the web access to the controls and this is what it shows:

https://lemmy.ca/pictrs/image/332ad67c-ac73-44ea-b0ec-0ed7b021a619.jpeg

They link to a webpage to change those settings, which requires logging to xfinity account, but now this webpage just tells you you have to download the app.

WtfEvenIsExistence,

Already tried:

Options all greyed out with a message telling you to go to xfinity.com/myxfi which just tells you to download the app

WtfEvenIsExistence,

For most cases, yes, people should get their own equipment, but for me, I’m on a government subsidized internet plan and my equipment is free.

https://lemmy.ca/pictrs/image/63bdc531-8b8d-4d76-8d3a-8d63c962d4af.jpeg

But if we no longer qualify for this in the future, then yea, we’ll get our own equipment.

WtfEvenIsExistence,

Good luck with banking in the future. 😓

WtfEvenIsExistence, (edited )

Nope:

Notice the settings all greyed out? The web link (xfinity.com/myxfi) they tell you to go to is just a page telling you the same “webpage is no longer available, please download our app” bs.

(I don’t normally use chrome btw, just used chrome to make sure there isn’t any weird browser compatibility issue.)

WtfEvenIsExistence,

CGM4140COM

Looks like this (Actually, the exact same model number. I checked in the settings at: 10.0.0.1/hardware.jst):

I mean, what can they see with the router that they already cant see as an ISP?
