Cast on Android 9

Like many I use miracast in Spain connected to a Win 10 tablet. I've recently bought a Huawei Y6 smartphone running Android 9 and although there are lots of instructions/videos online telling me how to connect non of them appear to be applicable. I've also read Google have disabled the facility. Any...

Re: Financial Advisors...Again.

I've had the same company in the U.K. for financial advice for over 20 years and have done very nicely. I'm always happy to tell someone that I stop short of a recommendation in the same way I would not recommend my Dentist!

Malaga Airport Train Ticket Machine

I have a friend coming in August who will be taking the train from Malaga Airport to the Benalmadena area. Now I've only used the ticket machine twice, got totally confused and had to ask a fellow traveller for help both times.
Can anyone give me a simple guide through it?

Re: Looking to move to Benomacarra

Our house is just up the road at Iznate. I drive through or round Benamocarra when I go to Velez. The only times I stop are to go to the barbers. Nice bloke, 7 euros for a haircurt. To my knowledge there are no taxi companies in Benamocarra, getting there from Velez is no problem, going the other wa...

Re: Malaga car hire.

I picked up a car from Malagacar.com 17th. April. I go for the cheapest option as I have a seperate policy. Their fuel policy used to be collect half full (and pay for it), return empty.

Re: No Internet

I eventually got through on the breakdown number and gave the guy my address. He said I needed to call the office. I eventually got through to the office where they told me I had not paid for this month. I replied that I paid a years subscription in January. I was back on within the hour. Thanks for...

Re: No Internet

In the UK I am with Talktalk. I'm sure the other ISPs are the same. My experience of getting problems fixed has been dreadful. It's often difficult to understand what they are saying so the idea of me trying to explain my problem in the little Spanish I speak is scary. That is why I wanted to make s...

Re: No Internet

O.k. You are right with the setup. Antenna cable enters wireless router, two power leads, one feeds the router, the other the antenna. Two laptops with win10, both with same symptoms. When diagnostics run both say "DNS server not responding". Also smartphone running android 4 fails to conn...

"On it now", that's the confusing phrase. What I meant is I am using my neighbour's internet for this thread.

I'm with Winet Telecom and have a gubbins on the roof pointing more or less towards Periana. Since I arrived on Thursday I've had no internet access. I thought before going through the painful exercise of phoning Winet I would make sure I've tried everything. On windows it shows It as "no inter...
