  • Little Steven said: Windows 8. There is no settings place. I had a problem earlier and registered for help. I selected Canadian for spelluing and it must have decided I was French Canadian. All of my punctuation marks are now lè accent et gout …
  • If I may, I like to make a small correction regarding this comment: " I don't think naan makers in Southwest Asia had yeast, and even in India today, yeast is essentially a part of European/Western style baking." They may not have yeast but they…
  • I don't see WW listed on Ace hardware web site any more. Please don't tell me they are not carrying it anymore.
  • Weber make a handle light for the "Q". Happens to fit the large BGE perfectly http://www.amazon.com/Weber-6503-Q-Handle-Light/dp/B000WEPFT0 Came to post this! Works great. And (if you want to) it automatically turns on/off as raise/lower the l…
  • Same here. I use fire bricks + 3 feet that came with the egg.
  • Is taking it apart for cleaning the dome absolutely necessary? I need to change the gasket but I am not in mode for removing the dome and putting it back on.
  • Not every device supports wireless adhoc mode. Many phones or tablets do not support wireless adhoc mode (and unfortunately infrastructure mode is not 'officially' supported either. Windows 7 however should work just fine. Your PC should show the …
  • I have used "paste as text" option and it works. (see the icon with a capital T to the left of printer icon)
  • I didn't have a jigsaw. So I used a router with a straight bit (plus a string to tie it to the center) and went deeper and deeper in every run. Getting the last piece was the fun part (when there was nothing to hold the "center"). I had to temporary…
  • Nope, I tried everything that it still doesn't work. I can't access it from my home network and I can't access it from outside through port forwarding. I have set my DLINK DIR-825 to 802.11b only.
  • Do a search on "ace hardware coupone" in a separate browser window while you have the "cart" window open. I don't know how it works but once I put everything in the cart and clicked on one of the the buttons in one of the links returned by my sear…
  • I have never used the "guest account" feature of my AP. The unit gets an IP address exactly the same way every other device in my home network does and yes the address is on the same subnet as the rest of the home network. The other forum member t…
  • See the other threads on the subject. Some of us have problem connecting it to our home network. Apparently it works with some older Access Points but not the new ones. As an example it doesn't work with my DLINK DIR-655 or DIR-825.
    in CyberQ Wifi Comment by Gadfly June 2012
  • I have mine up a running on a Netgear WNDR3400 or an Apple Airport Extreme without issue.  You need to make sure that you have the security mode set to be compatible with the router - if you are using WPA with a passphrase for example, set the Cyber…
  • Yes, I was going for the $300 thing from Costco or Amzon though.
  • Apple? Seriously? You should've stayed with cherry.
  • Even with this issue I have decided to support BBQ guru. If I get impatient I will just get a DigiQ. I think I have the patience ie limited budget. Need to buy some sous vide equipment first any way. Just last week my wife shut this down. Crying in…
  • I wish being a network admin would do us any good in this case! I have been working "on" Microsoft Windows networking subsystem for the last 20 years. (Not "with",  "on" as in: "I designed and wrote a lot of layer 2 network code of Microsoft Windo…
  • Steve, glad to see your son is doing ok. I don't know how I would deal with something like this if it ever happned to me. I can take anything as long as it affects me and me only (or so I think). When it comes to my kids, that's another story.
    in Open Heart Comment by Gadfly June 2012
  • Yeah, .. what would it take to test the freaking thing with a few top of the shelf access points? Very disappointed, in particular since they have put so many disclaimers to discourage you from complaining to them about getting it to work with your …
  • I'm not sure if this matters, but you may not be aware that the CyberQ Wifi doesn't use your home network.  It sets up its own network that you then connect to via your laptop.  (I haven't gotten to the hard bits yet where you try to connect via you…
  • Can we move on please? I left the other forum because of this (and yes, I know I can ignore the thread if I wanted to. but I rather not to see these threads to begin with). And Tweed_tip, ideologically and politically I am in the same camp as you…

  • I was going to get the extra set of cross bars -and- the R&B extender combo that includes rig extender, oval grid & foil ring. it was going over $200 so they are staying in my cart till wife warms up to the idea. I burned my hand a couple of weeks…
  • Did you manage to get it working in infrastructure mode? I have not.
  • Just ordered a woo3 extender! I am also interested in large adjustable rig (oval configuration) but that needs wife's approval.
  • I have not cooked with it yet (wife is away and I can't justify a slow long cook). I still have not managed to get the wireless working in infrastructure mode. and nobody has said that they could.
  • hmm.., his fly is open. ">
  • War Eagle,  I have reviews on my website of all the major controllers except for the PartyQ, the Wireless Stoker and the Wireless Cyber Q from BBQ Guru.  They may help you decide.  Here's a link to my product review page: Product Reviews Good luck…
    in BBQ Guru Comment by Gadfly May 2012
  • I am using the Guru GolfClub as well (and have been for the last two years). yes it is not the best solution out there (the tube connection comes off all the time, the plastic tube can bend to a degree that stops the flow). But I am too lazy to chan…
