Hataki kulala kazini…

Laptop sio ya kuweka kwa desk, I use mine anywhere and everywhere in my house, be it on the balcony, bedroom, sitting room, carpet etc. Wherever my creative juices kick in is where I’ll open my laptop and start using, hiyo story ya meza permanent hapana

i use my laptop everywhere btw,hii kitu haikaangi 2 place moja ati throughout.Inatembezwa kila mahali.

Heeeh. You have a setup? Like @Krizwech, I move around the house with my laptop, book, mouse, phone and headphones.

I work from the bed, a seat in the bedroom, a sit in the living room and the dining table - which is like my working desk.

This work from home thing is temporary to me, so I have never invested in anything proper to work on.

Work from home ni dining table, and pulling extra pillows when you go to the bedroom. But I also have a full desk and chair (I still use the chair on the side of the bed with the legs up). Desk i stopped using completely.

As we work from home, I have no fibre connection. My area is also not served by any wireless ISP, so I use my phone to tether connection to my laptop. The speeds are so low. Would you recommend the use of a wifi repeater? Do those things improve speed?

What mobile connection do you have currently(2G,3G,4G)? Having a repeater won’t help if the only connection you have is 2G. In this case it may actually makes things worse since repeaters degrade the connection speed. However, if the problem is that only have a good connection(maybe 3G or 4G) in only a certain area of your house but you can’t be at that place all the times(maybe you only get a 4G connection in the toilet), a repeater might help. If the initial connection(from phone to repeater) speed is high enough, then you may still get a good connection.

@Krizwech Laptops stationed at one place tend to last longer in some way since chances zake za kupata damage ama accident ni less especially nyumba ina wasee wengi. Maybe wewe you are very responsible.
