Autley user here too. :) This one in fact (although it's out of stock now). All the blurb says it's for people with big hands ("It may not fit well for small hands or women"), but it's been fine for me so far.

That's the one I have. MOUSE BROS

I have an MX Master and I have the back button as the internet back button and the forward button as a quick save for when I'm editing. Very useful but at the same time, very dull.

How come if a laptop or phone is downstairs it'll connect to the internet through the WiFi, but upstairs it will connect to the WiFi, but say "no internet"?

Yes.

The repeater might have lost connection to the router. It'll still broadcast its WiFi, but no internet

Not working? Turn it off and on again.
Working, but not responding very well? Turn it off and on again.
Working fine, but something else isn't working? Turn it off and on again.
Taking slightly longer to do something, while you are sitting watching it? Turn it off and on again.

I meant: of course you bloody reboot it. Why wouldn't you? It would've taken you longer to type out the post asking whether to do it than to just do it.

I am trying to sort my home office out, as we are doing more video conferences.

My laptop has a camera but it is not in the best place for my working set up.

What webcams do you use or recommend?

I have a logitech C920 which is ideal and was quite cheap... It looks like they're sold out on Amazon at the moment though so I don't think that's very helpful.

Approximately every webcam is sold out or has gougers charging hundreds for even basic models. I wouldn't be too picky, Kov.

I've got a logitech c270, which cost me £20 and works just fine. I use the built in microphone and nobody has any issues hearing me no matter where I am in the room, but I don't have anyone else in the house so it's always quiet (except when deebot is pottering around).
