Simple stuffed peppers made with seasoned ground beef, black beans, and chipotles in adobo sauce for a little kick!
Have any of you ever put in one of those home WiFi boosters? Or maybe one of those home wifi mesh networks?
I’ve been doing a bunch of reading on them (the mesh networks) and they seem like such a great idea but some of them are just so expensive.
I’m not sure I can justify the cost.
Our WiFi in our house is terrible. The input for the WiFi is in the basement and we only have one router so the signal doesn’t travel very far – especially with just the basic box that we get from the cable company.
We definitely get full coverage in the basement but on the main level we get about 1/2 signal and on the upstairs I’m lucky if I even get a signal sometimes.
It’s just annoying when you have a signal and are browsing around then you click something and see the little dinosaur of death… no internet connection.
I would love to replace our system with a mesh system but I realize that you still need a basic box from the cable company, or buy one, to import the cable signal and convert to WiFi before hooking into the mesh system.
I think that’s the thing that worries me… I don’t know which basic box that Comcast will support.
And then if and when we move and (finally) get a new cable provider, will I still be able to use my box or will it not be supported by the new company?
Because eliminating that $10 a month charge for their box would be super nice and then the mesh system would pay for itself in just a couple years since it’s a one-time charge instead of monthly “rental” fee.
I dunnno… I guess I have to do a little more research and possibly call Comcast to see which box they would support.
Ugh, calling them always makes me have a bad day.
Anyway, I made you some more stuffed peppers.
I love making stuffed peppers because you just add everything together, throw it into a pepper, and then bake it in the oven.
Super simple dinner.
- 4 large yellow bell peppers
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 tsp taco seasoning mix
