How to upgrade firmware on TRENDNet router?

Procedure below is copied from the PDF in the ZIP file that was downloaded from the TRENDNet download page for 4-Port Broadband Router TW100-S4W1CA (Version v2.0R), a discontinued model.
The ZIP Filename: FW_TW100-S4W1CA_v2(2.3.31).zip

And, note that the procedure in PDF was missing one very important caution, found on another TRENDnet router:

DO NOT upgrade firmware on any TRENDnet product using wireless connection.
Firmware upgrade over wireless connection may damage the product. Please perform firmware upgrade with “wired” network connection only

Firmware Upgrade Procedure 

1. Save the zipped firmware file to your PC.

2. Extract the .zip file to your PC.

3. Using a web browser, access the router’s configuration page (default IP address is 192.168.10.1)

4. Click on the System section in the left hand panel and click on Firmware Upgrade 

trendnet-firmware-upg

5. Click Browse and navigate to the unzipped folder with the firmware file.

6. Select the firmware file (.img)

7. Click the Apply button

8. Wait until the firmware upload completed and the device reboot

Important! Do not turn off the device or press the reset button while this procedure is in progress.

Watch Videos of Guest Speakers at Saddleback Church

Saddleback Church is the most influential church in the United States, and perhaps the world. When guest speakers from around the country or around the world get an invite to speak on the Saddleback stage, that is a special occasion for the speaker and for the church. If you’re searching for videos of talks and sermons by guest speakers at Saddleback, here’s what I’ve found so far:

You, get back on Facebook with one click

If you received an email from security@facebookmail.com, it can be hard to tell if it is real or fake, legitimate or suspicious.

While Facebook help does say that they send email notifications from Facebookmail.com, just because an email has that domain in the from address doesn’t necessarily mean it is real. Like on a real envelope, you can put 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC, as the From address, bad people do that with emails to impersonate (or spoof, in technical terminology).

One email I had received in several of my inboxes had this content:

Subject: DJ, get back on Facebook with one click

It looks like you’re having trouble logging into Facebook. Just click the button below and we’ll log you in.

This looked suspicious to me, because it made it too easy to click. Someone from Facebook Help Team had also said this kind of an email looked suspicious. But it’s hard to tell definitively if Facebook actually generates an email like this. Here’s a safety tip: never click on a button or link in an email!

fb-suspicious

To verify what a real Facebook email looks like, I went to facebook.com in a private new incognito window and clicked on the “Forgot account?” link. I filled in the form with my email address, and then I received an email that looks like this:

fb-real-reset

And wouldn’t you know it, the URL for the “let us know” link is https://www.facebook.com/login/recover/disavow_reset_email.php?n=26267&i=www&id=501181234 and the Change Password button link goes to https://www.facebook.com/recover/code?u=501181234&n=26267&exp_locale=en_US&s=23.

Conclusion: it’s hard to tell. But when you’ve initiated the forgot account command to reset your password, and you receive a security email at that time, it’s very likely a legitimate email that you generated.

But if security emails are coming to you at a random time when you know you weren’t trying to access your account, then something suspicious may well be happening. Best response is to not respond and do nothing.

Info about the Table Project Church App

The Table Project was a free church-based social network that had a good run from 2011-2016. Their own marketing had this description:

“The Table is a relational, online web application, custom-tailored for the church. Their purpose is to help churches engage their community, empower leaders and move people beyond the pews and into authentic, life-changing friendships.”

In May 2013, Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, acquired The Table (ht: Church Tech Today; Churchmag; CMS; Press Release). At that time, The Table had empowered more than 700 churches “to take community to the next level.” The church had ambitious plans for this church social network, as described here:

“… the leaders at Gateway began researching ways to merge spiritual learning, active pastoring and community with technology—around the same time The Table began working toward church community building. Now, the two are joining forces, each bringing unique strengths, to see the dream for church congregations to make connections and learn more about the Bible through The Table.”

When The Table was hitting its stride and gaining traction, it was serving over 7,000 churches in 62 countries, mobilized over 24,000 volunteers, and tracked over 2.3 million prayers prayed. Influential churches using The Table included Gateway Church (Southlake, Texas), Granger Community Church, Bethlehem Baptist Church, and Substance Church.

By September 2016, this tweet linked to an “Important Table Update” that most likely announced the shutdown of The Table. (Currently, unable to find an archive or cache of that announcement on the internet.)

In March 2017, Carlos asked a Table team member that replied: “the organization we sold it to shut it down”.

When Josh asked in July 2017 about what happened to the Table Project, the reply was: “it was sold to Gateway Church a few years back and they have begun to shut down service at this point.”

How to Print Website Like It Looks on Screen

Printing a web page so it looks like how it appears on a screen doesn’t always work. Well, the printed website looks messed up, garbled and ugly. It shouldn’t be so hard to just print a web page WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get.)

And it doesn’t matter if you’re printing on paper or saving a web page as a PDF file. 2 websites that I had difficulty saving neatly as a PDF were americanmomentum.bank and goldenvalley.blog/welcome-to-our-new-website.

I’ll explain why later, but here are the solutions I found to save PDF of web pages so it looks right (note: not every item listed here will work for every web page)—

Why a Printed Web Page Doesn’t Look Right

Why is this: because web developers now not only have to design their website for different sizes of devices and browsers, but they also may need a separate design for printing, depending on how the stylesheet is designed. Some websites realize that its users would want to print their web pages and  provide a printer-friendly version. But that’s in the minority. The rest of the internet have web pages that may or may not print like it looks on the screen.

This is an on-going discussion that dates back for years. This 2013 discussion thread, WYSIWYG Web Page printing in Mac OS X 10.8, had a comment saying that it’s an industry problem:

This appears to be an industry-wide issue. I only searched for a short time, but there appears to be no solution – with very little acknowledgement that there is  a problem. “Solutions,” as you have seen, tend to be from the coders perspective, talking about the problem from a CSS or HTML  – not plugins for the client side.

At superuser.com, the same question is discussed @ “How to get WYSIWYP (print what you see) in a web browser?” and “Why do my webpages not print what I see in my browser?

That’s why you and I have to go searching for a solution to fix this so we can print a web page or save a PDF version that looks like it does on screen, or at the very least, to be legible and readable.

What’s interesting is where Staples.com places its email subscription form for their daily deals and exclusive offers. It doesn’t look like it’s easy to find on every web page for some reason.screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-9-28-06-am
