I think you missed the part in your physics education that said that radio waves ARE elctromagnetec fields! :)

USB 3.0's 5 Ghz signal rate, in particular, will interfere with bluetooth and 2.4 Ghz wifi signals: USB 3.0* Radio Frequency Interference on 2.4 GHz Devices Make sure you buy USB hubs with fully-shielded plugs, and see if you can get an external antenna for your NUC.

Wow.. that is one of the most informative replies I could have hoped for. And yeah, I have to admit my physics education was... let's just say, not my favorite thing in school (not that WLAN or USB existed back then...) So that would explain why it fixes itself when the NUC is a distance away from the HUBS/DESK/LCD and not anywhere near a metal frame desk (which I guess would reflect the USB interference back into the case-antenna even if it is.. or maybe exactly because it is not touching the metal frame directly?

As I said, that's some pretty dang informative link you dug up there. Never even made the connection with USB 3.0 frequencies... that could indeed have been the problem I had.

Just mentioning this.. but this was the indeed the problem.. wow.

One of my hubs is a cheap-ass hub, the other is very premium much wow.. and so on. The USB cables to hub 1 (USB 3.0) are all connected to USB 3.0 ports. The cables are very very convoluted on my desk.. so I straightened them and put the (full) hub basically way away from my desk. The cables go STRAIGHT off and away from the NUC which does not sit anywhere near metal now.

This essentially fixed the problem entirely

So.. THANK YOU SO MUCH Genesys I'd never have drawn this connection. Somehow the (USB 3.0) CABLES and the USB 3.0 external HDD alone created this localized interference. One of the primary culprits (Wlan immediately resumed) was my external usb 3.0 HDD and its cable (which I had tucked together because it was too long...) just like in that info graphic in that link you gave essentially. Seeing how the test setup was I put the cable as straight away from the NUC as possible and put the actual HDD as far as away as is absolutely possible and connected it to an USB 2.0 hub instead of the USB 3.0 hub. Suddenly it all works again and the distortion is nowhere to be found. So it seems a series of shielding problems that resulted in a total collapse of WLAN was the source.

I learned something fundamentally new here. Thank you again.

Ps.: TL;DR it was the external USB 3.0 HDD when connected to the USB 3.0 hub. That alone (well, and it's very long cable!) created enough interference to kill my wifi...

Okay, this doesn't make it particularly less weird, but you do realize that radio waves are electromagnetic waves, right? From Wiki:

Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum longer than infrared light. Radio waves have frequencies from 300 GHz to as low as 3 kHz, and corresponding wavelengths ranging from 1 millimeter (0.039 in) to 100 kilometers (62 mi).

Edit: Ha! Walked away for a small task and Genesys beats me to it, oh well.

Well yeah I made a huge doozy there, but I honestly couldn't fathom how something can create such a huge interference out of nowhere and so localized too around my desk, but did you check the link he posted? That's some Grade A WTF stuff right there.

Well, don't say bluesnews OOTB isn't informative as hell every now and then

14. Just killed my WLAN and I hate physics Oct 23, 2015, 19:23 eRe4s3r
 
Wanna read something that makes you scratch your head?

I have a steel framed wood desk, 2 powered usb hubs, an INTEL NUC with integrated antenna. The case is Aluminum, WLAN worked fine. And I have lots of USB cables. Now imagine my surprise, when I put a 2nd USB hub on the DESK it killed my WLAN if, and only if, my NUC was positioned in a narrow field below the right panel edge of my LCD

I could literally trace the WLAN death field to what amounts a 30cm bubble around the right side of the LCD panel (where my NUC was sitting) if, and only if the 2 hubs are connected to the NUC and the devices I need are plugged in. The more devices plugged in the HUBS = the larger the field, but only if the NUC sat on the metal framed press-wood desk. (The hubs could be anywhere..)

So somehow I created a 2.4ghz distortion field by putting 2 USB hubs, a NUC, a LCD screen and a ton of cables on a metal framed desk. I put the NUC on a book a bit to the side = WLAN resumed working.

So what the fuck? How can electricity in USB hubs and a LCD panel edge reaching above my NUC create a distortion field that amounts to a bubble like shape around that desk?

I am stumped.. in all my time in IT I have *NEVER* seen anything like this. I.. I don't even understand how this is possible. Somehow I have created a distortion field that could literally create 100% absorption field for 2.4ghz WLAN signals.

So yeah, my day was fun Diagnosing this was anything but straightforward. I have a TON of wlan devices here and never had this happen before.

I must have skipped the part in my physics education where electromagnetic fields could influence radio waves.... fucking advanced technology.. it really is like voodoo magic.. and if it breaks you really need a Shaman nowadays.. man

Btw.. I may just have found a design fault in these particular intel NUC cases when you use internal WLAN cards. I know the case IS the "antenna" but the device is not touching metal anywhere.. so I think the USB connectors themselves must be inducing some kind of distortion that kills WLAN and creates a sort of feedback loop in the antenna. Since the field was not traceable with a tablet. But the wlan death field only exists when the device is *on* the desk. Weird..

The real source of discontent is a nice clause in the contracts of many networks that basically pwns Youtubers by making the "switch" to red MANDATORY and that if they release videos on BOTH systems they are "fired" aka, not allowed to post "normal" youtube content on RED

This forces them out of their networks and is why so many are up in arms. So really the issue is not youtube RED, it's the networks

Indeed: http://techcrunch.com/2015/10/21/an-offer-creators-cant-refuse/

Nuuuuh.. that article makes my brain hurt, clickbait headline deluxe.

The TOS needs be signed by ALL partner members and is because the TOS changed. The networks themselves however are the ones enforcing this weird "RED or DEAD" stance on channels, not youtube

Really shitty move by certain *cough* Mediakraft *cough* partner networks.

And youtube is not lying. 99% signed the TOS. (obviously) but the real shit-storm is hidden nicely out of view behind partner network secret contracts. If you followed a few big name vlogs lately you also know that the mood is vile. Big name youtubers are thinking about dropping their networks (and with that, the channels that they hold hostage) entirely. Something that happened to Mediakraft who is peddling dead channels now and has closed everyone who disagreed flat out down (aka fired them).

Anyway, huge shit-storm around Mediakraft currently. I wonder how it is in the network where TB is in?

TRUMP 2016

Way to extrapolate from my snarky remark btw... I have no idea if he's an SJW, but what he said screams 3rd gen feminism and when politicians bring ideological baggage then I don't find that too amusing. As prime minister he is supposed to work for the improvement of a nation, not for the spread of an ideology.

And I have no idea what goes in the USA with Trump/Hillary and that nonsense. Don't care really. Canada on the other hand was already suffering from Harpers kleptocracy and I doubt it gets better when you replace 1 kleptocracy with another. Look into the 2 clans that govern Canada... you may realize why I find this "revolutionary" view on this new dude hilarious

Are you implying that gender equality and the end of misogyny doesn't contribute to the betterment of a nation?

I am implying that what you write is not the goal of 3rd gen feminism

Btw, whether feminism is really a "betterment" of a nation would be an awesome (actual) debate topic. I have no idea about that.. not even a formed opinion really.

Nobody commenting on what massive fail Sword Coast Legends is? I told you so. it was 100% hype with ZERO substance. Watched a few let's plays that went deep into the story and.. my god. This is the best they could do? In what way is this game even DnD related aside from names? The important DnD 5.0 systems all don't exist ... what a lame ass excuse for a DnD game.. bah

On the other hand, finally got around to playing Life is Strange from 1 to 5 in.. 2 sittings over 2 day. What a journey... though some is cringe worthy and the "reveal" (imo) came from miles away it was still one of the most memorable game experiences in my overall gaming journey.

I would even go so far as say that Life is Strange is closer to the feel you had when you first played Shadow of the Colossus or seen Alien. It was something new. Hopefully we'll see more games like that (with way higher production values...) but as it is, did not regret buying into that one.

How is it with mouse and keyboard? I won't buy a game that demands a pad.

Runs just fine with M/KB, requires some getting used to, but apart from 1 issue with the way you select stuff in BUY/SELL menues (left click is CONFIRM and "click" to change tab so it gets a bit iffy sometimes...

But I played to level 25 now (char level) and can tell you it works fine with M/KB. This is one of these games you wanna run with DSR though, very flicker happy AA issues otherwise

30 FPS lock for gameplay, 24 FPS lock for cutscenes. NOPE. (And reviews are saying the game itself is outdated and messy, so those of us who demand 60 FPS aren't missing much.)

Yes, I am sure the limited fps massively hinders your enjoyment of a JRPG...

So I signed up and it looked at everything Uplay already tracks and put me at level 27.

NOTHING. Not a damn thing.

Mhhh level 15 and equally no fucking clue what the point of that was... if there are any rewards for anything beyond the uPlay ones I don't see em...

I for one want more "anomalies" and it seems Konami and the Japanese development market in general are less and less able to actually produce those.

Because we sure as hell don't have enough of those in the vein of metal gear solid

Too bad really. It's the end of Konami as a developer with international success. If they think the future lies in mobile market then all the better for them, but mobile won't be forever profitable.

And seriously, considering how retarded many Japanese devs act when they release games on Steam... it seems the "market" in Japan in general has to learn by fire how to do success on a true international sales platform. (Like JAST for example)

Ps.: Hoping this means Kojima will run a KS
