2 Outlet IP Switch and Google Services Alert
Over the last few days, numerous 3Gstore 2 Outlet Remote Power switch users have reported issues when using Google services on the hardware. 

The IP Switch can send out e-mail alerts for events like automatic reboots, scheduled power cycles, or network issues. Many users who have a Google address are unable to send e-mail through the switch, with an event log report that states "Failed to send e-mail. Connection with SMTP server failed."

The IP Switch also allows remote control via Google Hangouts (formerly Google Talk). This feature is not working for many users as the switch will fail to sign into the account.

Even if the IP switch was previously working with e-mail alerts through Google or connected via Google Hangouts, these switch features may not be working at this time. We are currently working on a solution and will provide an update once these issues are resolved. It is important to note that the IP Switch still works for all other functions including its automatic reboot, scheduled reboots, sending e-mail from other providers, etc. Only Google Hangouts and sending e-mail via Google are affected.

UPDATE 6/27 - The root cause of the issue comes from an update to Google security standards. SSLv3 security is no longer supported by Google, so the switch can no longer sign in to Google Hangouts or send an e-mail. We expect a firmware update in the coming days that will resolve these issues. The link will be posted here once available.
 

UPDATE 6/28 -  It looks like Google services have returned to the IP Switch for a number of useres over the last 12 hours. It is still unknown if this is a permanent fix or if there will be any further interruptions. Please keep an eye on this page for updates as we learn more.

Hum by Verizon Helps Ensure Safety for New Teen Drivers

    


  It’s summertime, that means it's time for vacations, road trips and pretty much anything including the sun family/friends fun. Memorial Day also marks the start of what industry experts commonly refer to as the “100 Deadliest Days of Driving” for teenagers. According to Verizon Telematics, American motorists drove 50 billion miles this past Memorial Day weekend, resulting in an estimated 200,000 reported accidents. Inexperienced teen drivers are among one of the leading factors of motor vehicle accidents.

   Hum by Verizon helps cars go from zero to smart in seconds. It’s an easy, self-installed solution that helps make almost any car manufactured since 1996 smarter, safer and more connected. It’s provides owners with amazing features like speed and boundary alerts, monitoring of vehicle location (including stolen vehicle assistance), vehicle diagnostics, a mechanics hotline, and even pinpoint & emergency roadside assistance.

  To help increase safety and awareness for teenage drivers, Verizon announced that starting today through Aug. 31, when family members purchase Hum for their newly licensed teen, they’ll receive a credit back for the equipment fee, activation fee and the first three months of service.

  Parents will love to have the ability to locate your teen driver’s car directly from your smartphone, you can even set alerts to notify you when the car crosses a pre-defined boundary, or exceeds a pre-defined speed. If your teen tells you they’re going to the store, you can set a boundary alert that can send you a text message if they’re actually going somewhere else instead. They will even send you a text message if your teen is going over the speed limit.
You can learn more about Hum here: go.hum.com or your local Verizon Wireless store.

I am on my first year at a seasonal Campground and I soon found out that their Wi-Fi was no good not being able to use my Amazon Fire stick for streaming movies as I only had 1 - 2 signal bars and all it would do is buffer. I did some research and found this little project and figured for what it cost if it didn't work I would not be out of a lot of money and I will go another route but I'm glad to say it works and it works awesome I posted my signal to 5 bars. Very happy with this product.

Netflix Launches the Easiest Speed Test Site Yet

While intended for Netflix subscribers, Fast.com’s simplistic approach to testing download speeds is rather refreshing. After all, other sites such as Speedtest.net, Speakeasy.net/speedtest, and even SpeedOf.me (which doesn’t require flash or java) are littered with ads and sometimes confusing with all their options. Even our 3Gstore support team would agree that it can be difficult for a less experienced individual to understand and use these other speed test sites. Fast.com is certainly a blessing!
Sample speed test

Just launched yesterday, Fast.com takes the guess work out of the equation and gives people a way to see whether they have a fast enough connection for streaming video (or whatever you may be using your connection for). Visit the website and it immediately starts testing your download speed. During the test, you have the option to pause it if necessary. They also include a little FAQ section, which you can get to by clicking the ‘?’ button at the bottom.

Here’s some additional notes from the official Netflix blog:

We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider. When you’re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you’re getting from your Internet service provider. Using Netflix servers, fast.com works like other globally available tools including speedtest.net, and the results should be similar in most cases. This consumer speed test is different than our Netflix ISP Speed Index. Fast.com measures your personal Internet connection at any given time. The speed index measures average monthly speeds of actual Netflix streams during prime time hours.

As a side note, there’s no mobile app available at this time. However, the website is optimized for mobile viewing and works just as well as it does on a desktop/ laptop.
