Techloq seems to have been having some issues due to the way their infrastructure is set up. They use (or used to use) IBM Cloud and it seems that those IPs were sometimes in the US and sometimes elsewhere (I do not know what's peshat but the fact is that I checked some of their IPs and it showed up in the US and in the Netherlands depending on which site you looked.)

It's interesting that I checked now and it seems that they have switched something around and their current IP isn't showing up as IBM Cloud and it's all in the US. Maybe they listened because of the DoL issues people had.

We probably want the simple dumb ones. Don't know what PoE is :)

I was searching on amazon and the cheapest netgears were like $15 and cheapest ciscos were like $50.
PoE is Power Over Ethernet, powering some supported devices without the need of a power outlet. Most VoIP phones and smaller devices (cameras, IoT, etc) can be powered this way. But this convienance comes at a price, PoE switches are much more expensive.

You can get Cisco also in this range (see this) but it's much-worse then the Netgear because it's not a Gigabit switch. Just go with the Netgear.

I don't know the difference between managed and unmanaged. Does that answer the question by any chance?
Maybe  ;)

Managed means you can do a lot of configuration in it for advanced routing (VLANs and much more), unmanaged are simple dumb (not a bad thing) switches.

Are you doing PoE or not?

Maybe post the products you're comparing prices for (Netgear vs Cisco) since it's possible they are not in the same product type at all (Cisco does have Unmanaged as well, checked now.)

All the PDF's I open in Adobe are in red. Any clue how to change that setting?
Where is it red? Maybe post a screenshot.

Nothing specific, buying this for an office that runs a bunch of phones and computers over the internet, and the boss said to find out if cisco will be better. I doubt it's a question of features, probably just speed and reliability.
Managed or unmanaged?

Netgear is very reliable as well (in our office we use Netgear and Ubiquity and both never made any slowdowns or issue.) If you're talking about managed (Cisco has unmanaged?) you can probably get much more advanced (but not as easy) with Cisco.

Nothing shows up, which entry in the list should I put?

Similar to this problem
https://github.com/microsoft/PowerToys/issues/4905
Oh got it, indeed the Brightness and Keyboard light ones on my Surface also do not work.

So for now you can use ALT+F3 as you said but Subscribe to the GitHub issues to see when they possibly resolve it.

It's definitely not, don't forget in order to close the window I need to use the function key…
How about selecting it manually from the list? (Press the Type Shortcut and then only F4 to see what name it give it.)

Very strange, I can do any key except the F4 key!
For example my F3 key is volume up and that works, but the F4 key which toggles the microphone doesn't!
But alt F3 certainly beats fn + alt + F4  ;)
What do you mean you can't do? You press Type Shortcut and press (when the "press the keys" box is open) Alt+F4 and it doesn't recognize it?

If that can do it it'll be easier than autohotkey
Tested now, works well:

I own a Lenovo laptop which unfortunately doesn't allow you to press alt + F4 to close a program, instead you need to use the function button.
Anyway to fix that? possibly a registry edit or good program?
(I'm able to switch the whole row to be Function keys, but I don't want that.)
Maybe check out the Keyboard Manager coming with Microsoft's PowerToys. See here https://github.com/microsoft/PowerToys/wiki/Keyboard-Manager-Overview

Thanks! Now they can all access the printer since my computer is the only one connected by ethernet. But there will be more so it'll be good to have it fixed. I just would rather not make everyone reconnect to the extender, but if it's the only way then I'll do it.
They'd usually get the new IP on their own (if they're set to auto connect), it's just that "if not" you'd need to restart or reconnect them.

He was asking which choice to pick from this:So the answer would be to use the IP form the source router
I wouldn't think the setting choice would be called "IPs" or "use the IP form the source router".

Got it! Okay will do some research. Is IPs the right answer to that setting?
I do not understand what your question means.

Also, if I change the setting, will it mess up the other computers/phones that are connected to the extender?
Mess up? No. It'll change their IPs, and they might need to reconnect/restart.
