Using the Telstra Wi-Fi Maximiser

The Telstra Wi-Fi Maximiser provides a free way to test the Wi-Fi capabilities within your house or office. It provides a cheap and effective heat map to understand where you can get best use of your network.

The app is available to download on iOS and Android

There is a short simple video on how to use it by Telstra on YouTube.

The great thing, it doesn’t matter if your Internet provider is Telstra or anyone else in the world, it is just testing the strength or your Wi-Fi signal from your router.

The steps are very easy. Start the app, create a rough mud map of your house floor plan.

Azure warns when your MSDN Azure spend wont last the month

Today I was working in the Azure portal. I noticed the Orange credit at the top (normally green). I then clicked on the alert icon in the bottom right corner. I was presented with the message

“The ‘Visual Studio Premium with MSDN’ subscription might run out of credit in 18 days (based on the average usage of $6.57 per day).”.

An easy fix was to turn off and delete some items that were not required.

Cant install AADSync via AADConnect using a Windows 2016 forest

You cannot yet install AADSync via AADConnect using a Windows 2016 Technical Preview 2 with a 2016 Forest.

I installed a DC on Windows 2016 with 2016 Forest.

1

Then I went to install AADSync, and got this error indicating that the 2016 Forest is not yet supported by AADSync.

2

I imagine that companies wont be in a great hurry to upgrade their Forest immediately anyway when 2016 goes GA, but I have reached out to Alex Simons for an update on when this will be supported. I will update this post if I receive a time line for this.
