Building the optimal home Wi-Fi network can feel like a never-ending process of trial and error. I’ve recently experienced just such a sense of frustration and elation while upgrading my fiber broadband package, and at the same time replacing a pair of first-gen Google Wifi hubs with a new mesh router setup.

Switching over to a pair of Linksys Velop Mesh Home access points has vastly improved my Wi-Fi experience, not just for internet use but local network speeds and latency too. Even though, on paper, it appears that the Google Wifi package offered essentially all of the same core features and specifications. Lesson learned — read the finer details.

So what ended up making all the difference? Read on to find out.

TLDR: Essential home Wi-Fi mesh setup tips

If you’re in a hurry, let’s get straight to the point. Here’s what I discovered while revamping my home Wi-Fi mesh network, plus some tricks that might help with yours.

Tri-band rather than dual-band access points are much faster and more reliable. Don’t quibble, spend your money on getting this right — it’s the single biggest improvement you can buy.

Invest in mesh hubs with multiple powerful antennas and amplifiers — the more the better really. They produce a robust signal that can easily penetrate a wall or perhaps two, making it far easier to build a reliable mesh.

Limit the distance between hubs where possible to ensure a strong connection and therefore fast data speeds between them. Your home mesh is only as strong as your weakest link.

You can use a network analyzer app to check the signal strength around your home. This is helpful when looking for ideal places to put an extender hub as well as to check the coverage strength of your network.

Don’t be afraid of using longer ethernet cables to place hubs where you need them. Just remember, buy a Cat6 cable so you don’t bottleneck those 1Gbps ethernet ports.

Building my home Wi-Fi network

Before going any further, I should explain a little about my weird home internet setup. My fiber line comes into an upstairs office on the far side of my house, while the living room and bedrooms are at the other end of the house. Hitting the most regularly occupied rooms (and my Ring doorbell) with a single Wi-Fi router is virtually impossible. The connection quality in the most used rooms had been ultra-poor due to the thick brick walls of this old house.

To solve this problem, I moved over to a pair of first-gen Google Wifi hubs some time ago. On paper, the original Google Wifi hub looks like a pretty decent piece of kit for mesh working, and it is certainly suitable for a 100Mbps or so broadband package. Not to mention its simplicity of setup and use. However, I initially struggled to strike the right balance of hub-to-hub speed and coverage with two Google Wifi hubs. No doubt a familiar feeling for those of you who’ve set up your own home Wi-Fi meshes.

Mesh networks offer better coverage but data speeds are only as good as the weakest link in the mesh.

Besides buying more hubs, the best setup I could come up with was to run an ethernet cable downstairs from my office to the kitchen and then plug in the second Google Wi-Fi point in the living room just one wall away. Although this worked fine and provided 5GHz to most of the house, my WLAN speeds still fell below 150mbps in the living room and sometimes below 50mbps or so in the bedrooms. Sending big files over WLAN was actually more sluggish than before but I resigned myself to the fact this is the best I could do. After all, those speeds were OK for an 80Mbps fiber connection.

When switching to the Linksys Velop, I took the opportunity to start from scratch. Much to my surprise, I no longer need to run an ugly ethernet cable downstairs. The first router remains up in the office yet provides a robust enough signal to hit a second access point down in the kitchen, a layout that was too slow with the Google Wifi points. Even with this seemingly less ideal setup, at least from a home layout perspective, coverage is just as good as before, and WLAN speeds are in excess of 300Mbps in my living room and regularly hit above 100Mbps in my farthest bedroom.

Why is this mesh setup so much better?

Robert Triggs / Android Authority

While a lot of variables have changed, the biggest improvement has come about from switching from dual-band to tri-band mesh access points. It’s a surprisingly easy specification to overlook when picking out a product, especially next to all the talk of 5GHz and 6GHz bands, band steering, and MIMO antennas. However, it’s actually the most important feature you can spend money on when building a home mesh network.

In a nutshell, simultaneous tri-band provides an additional 5GHz band reserved for hub-to-hub communication, freeing up the original 5GHz band for all your devices. Dual-band Wi-Fi hubs have to share their bandwidth between themselves and your gadgets, slowing down data speeds and clogging up their available network capacity. This explains why my 5GHz LAN connections were still quite slow when using Google Wifi, even though the signal strength appeared to be strong.

Tri-band Wi-Fi technology is the single most important mesh feature you can spend money on.

In reality, dual-band mesh hubs are more like simple range extenders — fine in some instances but to be avoided if peak speed or a complex mesh is your goal. Check out the video below for a closer look at the ins and outs of tri-band mesh networking.

The Linksys hubs also seem to produce more powerful, further-reaching 2.4GHz and particularly 5GHz bands. This additional power and extended range make it far easier to build a suitable mesh network with just a couple of hubs, rather than relying on three or four cheaper, lower power models to cover the same area. This is also a boon for the various smart home products I have dotted around my home, which are all seeing much more robust connections and fewer connection dropouts.

All that said, my home networking needs are bound to be a bit different from yours. While the Google Wifi may not have been brilliant for my use case, I can’t argue with its ease of installation and handy Google Home app integration. The Linksys system is not so easy to set up and the Android app is laggy, but the more powerful hardware and configuration options are better suited to my needs.

Whatsapp Web Tips And Tricks

WhatsApp is the most popular messaging platform in the world. The messaging application used to be only limited for use on smartphones, however, WhatsApp launched its web client on January 21, 2023, which allows users to use their WhatsApp account on their PC/Mac too.

WhatsApp Web is a really useful feature especially if you often work on your PC/Mac and don’t want to keep switching between your smartphone and computer while responding to WhatsApp messages. To use the feature all you need to do is visit the WhatsApp Web page and scan the QR Code using your smartphone with the WhatsApp application.

Here are a few tips and tricks to check out when using WhatsApp Web on your PC/Mac.


Use WhatsApp’s Keyboard Shortcuts

Using the WhatsApp Web interface with your mouse is not the most intuitive way to navigate around, instead, we’d suggest checking out these cool keyboard shortcuts to do a few things much quicker than if you have to use the mouse.

Ctrl + N: Start a new chat

Ctrl + Shift + ]: Next chat

Ctrl + Shift + [: Previous chat

Ctrl + E: Archive chat

Ctrl + Shift + M: Mute chat

Ctrl + Backspace: Delete chat

Ctrl + Shift + U: Mark as unread

Ctrl + Shift + N: Create new group

Ctrl + P: Open profile status

Pin WhatsApp Web tab to get notifications

After pinning the tab on your browser, the WhatsApp Web tab would show up on the left side of opened tabs on the browser. You would then have easy access to the WhatsApp Web tab and would also receive notifications for incoming messages.

Check out: How to create a second WhatsApp account without actual mobile number for free (or fake number)

Keep your smartphone connected to the internet

To ensure you have an uninterrupted experience while using the WhatsApp Web client, we’d recommend keeping your smartphone connected to the Wi-Fi or mobile data at all times. WhatsApp Web does not function if your phone isn’t connected to the internet hence, make sure to keep Wi-Fi or mobile data on to receive or send messages via the WhatsApp Web client.

Use multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same PC

If you’re someone who has two or more WhatsApp accounts, then you’re in luck since there are a couple of ways to login and use multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same PC.

Method 1: Incognito Tab

Open an incognito tab on your browser and then visit the WhatsApp Web page and scan the QR code as usual to set up your account. Using an incognito tab would allow you to open multiple WhatsApp accounts on your PC and they would function as the normal WhatsApp Web client itself.

Method 2: Use a WhatsApp Web proxy

Read messages without Blue Ticks

You might be thinking that this is fairly simple and you could just turn off the Read receipts feature in WhatsApp settings, however, you could use another simple trick when using WhatsApp Web to read incoming messages and not show the Blue Ticks without the need to toggle of read receipts in the settings.

Simply follow these steps to use the trick:

Go to the WhatsApp Web tab

Open the chat window where you’re receiving or expecting to receive messages

Now open any other window e.g. File manager, notepad, etc.

Resize the window and make it fairly small and place it over the WhatsApp Web client tab in your browser

Now just wait for the incoming messages to show up on your WhatsApp Web client and read them

Since the window would be in the foreground, the browser would assume you’re working on a different app hence, the messages would not be marked as read. 

Boost volume or change playback speed of voice notes

Unfortunately, we can’t yet make voice calls via the WhatsApp Web client so for now, users have to make do with voice notes. While voice notes are pretty convenient and fun to use, at times the voice notes can be too long and you might not feel like listening to the whole voice note or the sender’s voice might be too soft for you to hear.

Luckily, there’s a cool Google Chrome extension that lets you adjust the volume of the audio note and even change the playback rate of the voice note. The extension lets you boost the volume all the way up by 100% and also lets you change the playback rate by 2x.

Download: Zapp WhatsApp Audio Speed and Volume

Transfer files from your phone to PC or vice versa

Yes! you read that right. It’s super easy to transfer files from your phone to your PC via the WhatsApp Web client, however, to be clear, this process does take place via the internet hence if you’re using your mobile data then, we’d suggest keeping track of the file size you want to transfer to avoid depleting the data or having to pay extra.

Keep in mind for this to work you’ll need a second WhatsApp account or a someone else’s phone to transfer the files from/to.

Open WhatsApp Web on your PC

Launch the app on your second WhatsApp account on your smartphone and send the file/image to the WhatsApp account which is logged in on the WhatsApp Web client on your PC

You could also do this the other way around to send a file/image from your PC to the smartphone

Simply download the received file and it would be stored on your smartphone/PC automatically

Change the background on WhatsApp Web

While using WhatsApp Web on your Chrome browser, you could install an extension which lets you change the background image while in the chat window as well as the background of the WhatsApp Web client.

To do this, simply download and install the W.Beautifier extension for Google Chrome and install the app.

The extension would show up towards the right side of the browser

Use can use any image on your PC/Mac as a background or wallpaper

Download: W.Beautifier

Turn ON dark mode for better usability during night time

Adding emojis through your keyboard

To send emojis quickly on WhatsApp Web, head over to the text box inside a chat thread and type a colon (:) followed by a word (or a part of the word) that expresses that particular emoji you want to send.

For example, typing “:happy” will show you the following set of emojis:

Here’s what typing”:sad” will get you:

You will get this when you type “:heart” inside the text box:

Transform your emoticons into emojis

If you were born in and around the 90s, you would know that there weren’t emojis but emoticons where you typed a series of characters like a colon, semi-colon and brackets to express your emotion. There’s no shame, we’ve all used them. If you’re someone who still uses them, then you’ll be in luck as WhatsApp Web automatically converts your emoticons into emojis. Here’s a bunch of text smileys you can use to let WhatsApp convert them into emojis:

I Let Bixby Answer My Calls And Everyone Hung Up On Me

Calvin Wankhede / Android Authority

Samsung’s One UI is chock-full of features, many of which you might not even know existed. And if that wasn’t enough, seemingly every other update brings along a smattering of new features and enhancements. Case in point — Samsung recently rolled out the One UI 5.1 update alongside the release of the Galaxy S23 series. While I tend to ignore minor version bumps when they hit my smartphone, one feature buried deep in the changelog caught my eye: Bixby text call.

Going by the name, you might think the feature is an extension of Bixby in some way — perhaps the AI assistant can now write your texts a la ChatGPT? Fortunately, however, Bixby text call has almost nothing to do with the voice assistant that goes by the same name. Instead, it’s a brand-new feature that mimics Call Screening on Google’s Pixel smartphones. And the best part? It’s available on just about any Samsung phone running One UI 5.1 or higher, regardless of where you live.

That’s right — Bixby text call can answer calls on your behalf and transcribe the caller’s speech in a text chat-like interface. You can then choose to respond via text, answer the call, or hang up. But that’s just the theory — does it work in the real world? I’ve had the feature enabled on my Galaxy S21 FE for the past month to find out.

Unlike Call Screening on a Pixel, Bixby will read out whatever you type to your callers.

However, it didn’t take long for me to notice that callers didn’t like talking to Bixby. While this may seem obvious given the voice assistant’s heritage, it’s actually not for the reasons you might think. Even though Samsung offers five different voices to choose from, none of them sounded convincing or even friendly to my callers. Pixel’s Call Screening sounds a lot more natural since it uses the Assistant and Google’s excellent text-to-speech engine.

Samsung’s initial greeting also includes two mentions of the word “Bixby,” which means very little to the average person. Who is Bixby and why are they on the call with me? Unsurprisingly, I’ve noticed many first-time callers take a long pause to process what they’ve just heard. And a few hung up on me too, before attempting to call again. But when they do finally respond, Bixby transcribes English words decently well in most cases.

Is it Samsung’s fault that I used Bixby text call for non-English voice calls? No, the company makes that limitation pretty clear before you even enable the feature. But it’s not like I knew which language the caller spoke before I answered the call. The results are still entertaining, though.

All jokes aside — this limitation wouldn’t be so bad if I could review or listen to a recording and cross-verify what the caller said. But unlike Call Screening on the Pixel, Samsung phones do not store an audio recording of the call — only a copy of the text transcript. So if you screened an important call in a language Bixby doesn’t understand, you’ll never know what the call was about.

Bixby text call is available worldwide, but it currently only transcribes English and Korean languages.

Bixby text call: Not perfect, but it’s close

Calvin Wankhede / Android Authority

If you can set aside the language barrier, Bixby text call is a genuinely handy feature for when you’re suspicious of a spam call or cannot answer voice calls. And beyond screening calls, the ability to type your own responses is a big step forward. You can actually have a dialogue with the other person rather than just asking them “Is it urgent?” or “Who are you?” For context, Google’s Call Screening can only do the latter.

I know I’ve criticized the feature a fair bit, but Bixby text call works decently well already, especially if you only consider it for call screen purposes. From what I’ve noticed, marketers hang up pretty quickly when they hear an automated response versus if I said the same thing in my voice instead. But that doesn’t mean it has to end there. Here are a few improvements I hope Samsung brings to the feature:

Custom greeting: Bixby’s current introduction takes too long to recite and can be confusing if you don’t already know about the voice assistant. A custom greeting would go a long way toward making the experience feel more bespoke and personal. Samsung does have a feature that uses AI to create an offline copy of your voice, but it’s limited to Korean for now.

Galaxy Watch integration: I decline calls from my wrist more often than not, especially when I’m around other people. If Samsung brings the Bixby text call button to its Galaxy Watch line, I’d have one more reason to use the feature — take calls discreetly.

Background call screening: Manually screening a call from my wrist is cool, but you know what’s even better? Doing it automatically, like Call Screening on the latest Pixel phones. The Samsung Dialer app already identifies spam calls accurately in my area, so automatically screening them would be a huge plus.

Saved audio recordings: As I alluded to earlier, the lack of audio recordings really hurts the feature’s usefulness. Google’s Call Screening didn’t include this at launch either, so I can only hope Samsung adds it in the future. It would solve the multi-language problem as I can then simply ignore Bixby’s gibberish.

Nice-to-have feature requests aside, credit where it’s due: Samsung lets you use Bixby text call anywhere in the world. That’s a privilege you don’t get with Call Screening on the Pixel, as it’s simply unavailable in many regions. If you move or switch to a local SIM card while traveling, the feature will simply disappear. Samsung doesn’t impose similar restrictions, even though it only supports two languages at the moment.

All in all, Bixby text calling probably won’t convince you to buy a Samsung smartphone. However, it’s definitely one of those rare Android features that you won’t find anywhere else (yes, barring a Pixel). Whether it’s perfect right now or not, I’d rather have some form of call screening than nothing at all.

Process Of Setting Up A Backup And Restore Jenkins

Introduction to Jenkins Backup

Jenkins backup is a solution for keeping the backup of critical configuration settings related to Jenkins. Jenkins has a backup plugin that can used to backup. Jenkins Backup and restore refers to services and practices for making periodic copies of data like configuration and access rights settings. All the backup data which includes setting related to IAM (Identity Access Management), plugin, artifacts archives and build logs saved inJENKINS_HOME directory. The easiest way to backup is just to set the new folder with new backup and just copy it back whenever it’s required the same.

Start Your Free Software Development Course

Web development, programming languages, Software testing & others

There are multiple methods to back up the Jenkins configurations such as:

1. using thin backup

2. using the git repo

Process of Setting up a Backup and Restore Jenkins

We will consider the process of setting up a backup and restore Jenkins to a new server step by step:

Login to Jenkins UI

We can see the plugin installed successfully after restarting Jenkins. We can found the newly installed plugin “Thin Backup plugin “under Manage Jenkins link.

Jenkins Thin Backup Setting

We can see backup configuration settings are available below. The user who is running the Jenkins services is responsible to define all the below configuration. The first configuration to define the directory where all the settings and configurations related to Jenkins are going to store. We can also schedule the backup for time to time update.

Performing Backup

Restoring Backup

The best way to check your backup data is, navigate to the specified back up directory. You could see the backup is created with the attached timestamp to the folder name. You can also find your old backup file which is available based on your retention policy settings.

Output directory where backup generated

Note: Perform sanity once Jenkins restore task has been successfully done.

Let’s take a scenario where I have deleted some files from Jenkins directory and recovered it from the backup.


rm: remove regular file ./lenkIns/hudson.plugins.git.GitTool.xml’? y

ls: cannot access chúng tôi No such file or directory

Post deletion of some files, we have restored the data from the backup.

For restoring

Step 2: Select the backup point from which you want to restore it back.

Now we have run the command to verify the file which was deleted is successfully restored or not.

Type the command “ls –l /apps/jenkins/hudson.plugins.git.GitTool.xml” verify the file.

rm /aaps/jenkins/hudson.plugins.git.GitTool.xml

rm: remove regular file ‘/apps/jenkins/hudson.plugins.git.GitTool.xml’? y

ls -l /apps/jenkins/hudson.plugins.git.GitTool.xml

ls: cannot access chúng tôi No such the or directory

-rw-r–r–. 1 Jenkins Jenkins 370 May 27 04:31 /apps/jenkins/hudson.plugins.git.GitTool.xml

Using the git repo

Let’s suppose in any organization, it has followed the devops practice and configured Jenkins as part of their build process. Basically DevOps team wants to configure a process and as part of process to set up a periodic backup for any disaster.

Pipeline Script to take backup

Step 1: Create a new Jenkins Job. You should choose Freestyle project

Step 2: Let’s add a job that will completely backup Jenkins including all jobs, playbooks, whatever else you have there. It will backup everything located at /var/lib/Jenkins. Select the “Build Periodically” build trigger and configure to run as frequently as you like.

Create a new file Backup_config and add the below script. Once the script added commit the file into source code repository.


pipeline { agentany stages { stage("BACKUP"){ steps{ sh """#!/bin/bash pushdbackup_config sudogitconfig --local "[email protected]" sudogitconfig --global chúng tôi "Smaheshwar85" popd cp -v var/lib/jenkins/*xml $WORKSPACE/backup_config pushdvar/lib/jenkins/ mkdir -p $WORKSPACE/backup_config/`dirname $i` cp $i $WORKSPACE/backup_config/`dirname $i` done popd cp -rfvvar/lib/jenkins/secret* $WORKSPACE/backup_config/ cp -rfvvar/lib/jenkins/user* $WORKSPACE/backup_config/ pushdbackup_config sudogit commit -a -m"Jenkins Backup Job" """ }} stage("PUSH"){ steps{ sshagent(["$GIT_CREDENTIAL_ID"]) { sh "cdbackup_config&&git push origin HEAD:$BACKUP_BRANCH" } }} }}


Once you have triggered the building backup is generated.
