How to change router at home and get a better one?


I have consulted your website where I have found topics that interest me and enlighten me on various points. One of them is the question of replacing the MEO router with another so that you only have one network at home and not two.

It is at this point that I would ask for your help if possible:

I configured the TG789VAC-V2 router in bridge mode, to replace my MEO network with a MESH network using DECO P9 routers.

Now I would like some help on two questions if possible:

  1. if for some reason it is necessary to deactivate the bridge mode on the MEO router and switch to normal mode (router mode) how can I have access to the MEO router again since I no longer have this access via wifi (because it is in bridge mode).
  2. the MEO router after being configured in bridge mode whether or not I was without the "dynip" service.

I appreciate your help if possible.

Since then my greetings


Fernando Marques



Answer your questions :

  1. You need to connect the network cable to one of the other ports and access the router's configuration page. It is possible that by simply changing the ethernet port where the DECO connects to another, you can directly access the IP of the Meo router (via DECO's Wi-Fi). It may depend on other factors, but since it's simpler, it's worth testing.
  2. If you have configured this service, it should be maintained, as all dynip operating conditions are maintained. In any case, and since DECO will manage the network, it will be more practical to configure the dynamic IP on this router, to which you have direct access.

What is the best price for my smartwatch?

Good evening.

I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro LTE. I would like to know what, in your opinion, is the best price for this equipment. From what I understand, in Portugal this segment is still very underdeveloped. I would love to read about your experiences with this type of equipment.


Philip Serra



The answer to your question will depend on how you want to use your smartwatch. There are 2 possibilities you should consider.

The first is to have everything you have on your smartphone on your watch, i.e. clone the number and have voice calls and data (internet) access there.

In the second case, it has its own independent tariff, mainly using Internet access, excluding voice calls.

In a quick search we did, Vodafone and NOS may have a copy of your card, but in eSIM format.

See the links below for more information:

In the second case, we found only one proposal, coming from MEO. This allows you to have your own price associated with the smartwatch:

You need to assess what you want to use on your smartwatch and then choose what you want.

Also remember that you will be able to do everything you need by pairing the watch with the smartwatch, but in this case the connection will work via Bluetooth.

How to change the OneDrive destination folder?

Good afternoon,

I'm having trouble syncing folders to OneDrive.

The folders are on a second drive labeled "D" but in Onedrive's options they never show up.

What I've done so far is copy the folders to C:users...Onedrive, but it happens that whenever I put new files in the original folder, they don't are not synchronized.

How should I do it?

Isabelle Cavaco


Isabel, you are probably doing this incorrectly, without telling OneDrive that you want to make the change.

It is not enough to move the folders on disk D for the synchronization to change. Microsoft has detailed information on how to do this, as you can see in the link below:

In short, what you will need to do is unlink your account and re-link it. In the setup process, you just have to indicate where you want your home folder, and here you have to indicate disk D.

Where can I install Office 2016 on my PC?

Hello Pplware.

I am purchasing an office 2016 key and need to know where can I get the software to install?


Avelino Tavares



Microsoft makes much of its software available for download, which will then require a key or signature.

In your case, and because you want Office 2016, you will need to download the correct version. As you have not indicated which version you have, below we leave 3 links to choose the one you want:

Choose the version you want, download and install it, then use the key you have with you.

How can I improve the performance of my Windows 11?

Hello Pplware,

I need your help to make my PC even better for the games I love. I have a good machine, but I feel like Windows 11 could offer users a bit more.

So, I asked you for your precious help in order to improve the performance of my machine a little in these moments when I need a little more.

Do you have any secrets to tell me? Nothing very complicated, preferably, and without having to put more material in the PC.


Jules Matias



Windows 11 has been improved to meet all user demands, in all situations.

So the secret we have to tell you is not ours, but Microsoft's. The creator of Windows recently revealed a little trick that can be used:

Just keep in mind that you will have to give up some security features, especially in the area of ​​virtualization.
