Dinner at home with Patrick: vegetarian ramen. Troubleshot a problem with no internet. After confirming that the router was not the problem, I called Sonic and they walked me through unplugging the ONT and a few minutes later everything was working again. The ONT must be unplugged for 30 seconds, and then it takes a few minutes before the connection resumes. Performed computer maintenance on my non-work MacBook Air. Continued planning new computer hardware purchases. Chatted online with TP-Link technical support to ask them if the Archer C7 now supports HFS+. (I purchased an Archer C7 on January 29, 2017 and installed it and it has been working fine for the past 5 months. Now I'd like to add a hard drive to it. Does my C7 support HFS+? Much discussion in online forums says it does not, but my User Guide says that it is, so perhaps the support came in a later version or via firmware?) Answer: No, since I have hardware version 2. Hardware version 4 of the C7 does support it. Since it's not possible to specify what hardware version you want when you buy, there's no way for me to get a V4 of the C7.
