How to find the Wireless Channel of the Access Point you are connected to, using netsh

Have you ever tried figuring out the channel of the Wireless Access Point you’re CURRENTLY connected to?  If you’re in a office/corporate environment and have several APs set up in the same area that share the same SSID, knowing which specific AP you’re connected to for troubleshooting can be a pain in the butt.

For Windows users, try this:

In Command Prompt: “netsh wlan show interfaces” (without the quotes)

This is the easiest way I’ve found to quickly help me diagnose which AP I’m connected to when several share the same SSID.

Anyone know an easier way?

A Fix for Google’s GMail HTML Signatures Not Showing up in your Settings

So Google hasn’t ironed all the kinks out yet for their help and support regarding the newly rolled out HTML Signatures, as this simple fix alluded the Google Support team for a week.

If you’re having trouble finding out why your GMail won’t show an HTML signature, try this:

Switch the Email Composer to Rich Formatting, instead of Plain Text.
1. Click compose mail
2. Click on “Rich formatting” (under Subject and just over the message textbox)
3. Go back to settings (no actual message has to be created, this is just to change that setting).

Why this isn’t simpler in the settings, I don’t know.

The new Sobe drinks are HORRIBLE compared to the old ones!

Orange Carrot Sobe

The Sobe brand of drinks is one of my favorite brands of all time. I have drank Sobe beverages for over 10 years, and at one point collected the bottle sticker label of each different Sobe drink I bought. These glass bottles held delicious juice inside that contained added vitamins and stuff like that… but all I cared about was the flavor. ORANGE CARROT is possibly the best combination flavor of all time, and is was my favorite drink of all time.

Recently, the wise people over at Sobe decided to change to plastic bottles so their drinks could fit into vending machines and be sold in more locations. I missed the glass bottles, but didn’t mind the change because it meant I could now get my orange-carrot goodness in more locations. However, in addition to changing the bottles, they also slightly changed the formulas for how their drinks are made. How can I tell?  After drinking the same drink for over 10 years, you notice if it changes.

The change in the drink now makes the orange-carrot flavor taste like a horrible powered orange drink, along the likes of the powdered drink TANG. What was once my favorite drink, is now a disgusting liquid that I cannot finish. I bought an orange-carrot Sobe last week, and couldn’t drink more than 1/4th of the drink because I was so disgusted by the new flavor. This change has also affected the cranberry-grapefruit flavor, which was another common flavor that I would drink.

SOBE, PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD RECIPIES! I’ve gone from a die-hard supporter to someone who wouldn’t recommend even giving the drink to a pet.
