After all the help...

Ref..

Sent this to verify the router would work ok...

Just bought a Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200..with the intent of
using it as a router between my wifi computer..(have a netgear wifi
adapter installed)..and the fire hd8 tablet. Will I be able to turn it
on and use it as a router ok...From what I've read it is sprint
compatable and works for 3G setups like mine...I also read it will work
ok with the paylo 40$/month plan that I have with virgin mobile
broadband2 go...There is no fee to use it?


And got this reply..

Unfortunately, you will not be able to activate a Mi-Fi device. Keep in
mind that this device (and the MC 760 stick) has a certificate that that
expired as of 04/30/19. After this time, or sooner for some devices, you
may no longer be able to use the device on the system, since it will not
be able to connect to the network to perform any troubleshooting steps,
if needed. Virgin Mobile USA continues to enhance the network with
improved features and functionalities for customers. This certificate
expiration is an industry decision, not a Virgin Mobile USA or Sprint
decision.

If your current device is still working, eventually, it will lose
service. In addition, since Virgin Mobile no longer supports
Broadband2Go devices, you may contact BOOST Mobile and check their
devices and service.


So I bought this..
Boost Coolpad Surf Hotspot and will set it up online with this..

Fire HD 8 Tablet...Getting hooked up to internet...??


My internet is 3g, the computer is an acer..out of the box is not wifi ready...I installed a netgear A6100
WiFi USB Adapter..It has a drive in the device manager and the netgear genie says it is ready to go... The setup page for the fire hd8 says I need to access the internet to setup the table...It is asking for an SSID number and I don't know what that is...the amazon help instruction says;

"To connect your Amazon device, such as your Kindle e-reader, Fire tablet, Fire phone, or Fire TV to a wireless network, you’ll first need to know the name of the Wi-Fi network, and the password for the network (if required).
Tip: Your network name may also be referred to as an SSID; your password may be referred to
as a passphrase or key.

To find your network name or password:

Check the sticker on the bottom of your router.
Check your installation guide or the owner's manual for your router.
View the wireless settings on a device that is already connected to your network, such as a Windows PC, Mac, or mobile phone.


I assumed that when I was connected to the internet...broadband to go...the installed wifi (netgear adapter) would hook up with the FireHD8..automatically, but it needs this SSID number...What are they asking for?

I now have wifi capability...For downloading apps for a drone...

I installed a netgear wireless ac adapter..AC600 Dual Band..

Can I now run a tablet if I buy one? I'm trying to get setup for flying a drone with realtime video.
From what I've read, this can be done with a smart phone, which I don't have, a tablet or there are now
smart controllers that have an integrated screen, which require apps to be downloaded to setup the drone.

Kansas attorney general gives Gov. Laura Kelly until Friday to drop welfare plan..


What a worthless p.o.s....Another winger hateful of helping the needy..The handjob isn't even real sure whether her plan "violates either the letter or spirit of state law"...


Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is giving Gov. Laura Kelly an ultimatum: Drop your plan to keep people on welfare by Friday or I’m going to court.

The Republican attorney general is telling the Democratic governor that a new policy from the Department for Children and Families violates either the letter or spirit of state law. The policy allows some adults without children to receive welfare even if they don’t meet work requirements.

Schmidt’s deadline moves the two officials closer to a legal showdown over how much power Kelly and her agencies have regarding welfare policy. The outcome may affect whether some Kansans can remain on assistance.

Kelly has stood by the policy and her office plans a news conference Thursday to address the issue. She has long been critical of the state’s restrictions on welfare, which lawmakers placed into law under former Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.

Kohack...running for ks senator...




Must have gotten over the shock of losing the govnrsihip to a democrat...hee heeee

Still a total whack job...still sees an illegal behind every bush....Still licking cheetox shoes..




LEAVENWORTH — Republican Kris Kobach settled speculation about the next phase of his career Monday by declaring his candidacy for the U.S. Senate with a message tethered to restraint of illegal immigration, a new era of government austerity and praise for President Donald Trump.

Kobach, still dealing with political fallout from losing the 2018 gubernatorial race to Democrat Laura Kelly, established a Kobach for Senate committee and divulged his plans to 100 supporters at a Leavenworth rally. He’s competing for the seat held by retiring Republican Sen. Pat Roberts.

“This is not a time for a quiet senator,” he said. “It’s not a time for a senator who wants to make everybody happy, doesn’t want to take a stand. It’s not a time for a senator who’s Republican-lite.”

Kobach said he would carry the flag in the Senate’s fight for more border wall and press to halt spending of tax dollars on undocumented migrants. He pledged to never vote for a tax increase and would oppose growth of the federal government. He promised to apply a constitutionalist’s defense to the right to carry firearms and limit abortion and to oppose the Affordable Care Act.

His entrance into the field elicited a swift reaction from Republicans, Democrats and potential rivals. He was reminded of both his loss last year in the statewide race for governor and his unsuccessful 2002 bid for U.S. House.

“Kris Kobach is pushing the same extreme, and often unconstitutional, policies he imposed as secretary of state,” said Vicki Hiatt, chair of the Kansas Democratic Party. “Kansans defeated Kobach twice before, and we’re confident Kobach will strike out in 2020.”

Kansas Senate Majority Leader Jim Denning, an Overland Park Republican, threw water on a Kobach candidacy.

“He will have a lot to prove to the Republican Party,” Denning said. “For one, he has to prove he is able to run a viable campaign. His 2018 gubernatorial campaign can be described as disorganized and amateurish at best. The Kansas GOP needs someone who can support and energize our party. Kobach had his shot, fell short and was handed defeat in the 2018 general election.”

No Democrat has won a U.S. Senate seat in Kansas since the 1930s, and the state has been captured by the GOP presidential nominee since the 1960s.

Kobach said Trump was “very encouraging” of his political aspirations when they spoke several days ago.

Kobach said much of the political establishment in Washington, D.C., would prefer Kansans elect a new senator who would quietly vote to expand government, decline to act on principle and do little to rock the boat. He said the nation would be in a “downward spiral” if not for Trump’s election because Democrats were aggressively pushing a socialist agenda.

“Our national sovereignty is at stake. Our constitution is at stake. Our economy is at stake. Our families are stake,” he said. “That’s why I’ve decided to launch this campaign. I will help the president make America great again.”

Jack Pandol, spokesman for the Senate Leadership Fund, said the imperative was to elect a Kansas Republican to follow Roberts and pointed to Kobach’s loss in the governor’s race. He said Kansans deserved a Senate nominee who could be victorious in the statewide contest and help prevent the Senate from falling into hands of Democrats.

Kobach, a rural Lecompton resident and two-term Kansas secretary of state, could find himself in a crowded primary in August 2020. He narrowly won the gubernatorial primary last year against Gov. Jeff Colyer, but sealed defeat in the general election by failing to broaden his political appeal.

Kobach recently sought a White House staff job tied to national immigration policy under Trump, who endorsed his candidacy for governor.
