Monitoring TP-Link Powerline speeds on a TL-WPA8630P

Firstly, you'll need to use your web browser's network debug panel to intercept a login request to the access points web GUI.
You'll want to find the 'Basic admin' cookie.

That done, just replace both 'x.y.z.w' with your devices IP address, and put the key in 'PUT YOUR KEY HERE'.

The script requires the standard 'curl' command, and also the 'jq' command to understand the output. If you don't have them. they'll be in your standard repositories.

Root Sony Z3 compact with Lolipop (Android 5.1)

This keeps all your data and most settings intact, so you can use your phone as you do it (though it will spend a lot of time 'optimizing apps') or stop and go out :-)
You don't need to unlock the boot loader, so the camera quality stays awesome, and you get all the bundled apps, along with the Google ones.

Use the built in update app to go from 4.4 to 5.

Then use the settings, about, update menu to update to 5.1 latest.

Install Kingroot (I used 4.8) and let it root your phone.

TP-Link TL-WPA4230P on Linux

Quick note on these PowerLine devices.

They don't need any tools to manage them, as they have a sufficient web interface.

BUT - these devices are terrible network citizens.

Dell have abandoned Linux users, no matter what Ubuntu say about it

I got a Dell laptop a few years ago, and while scouting around for it's replacement I noticed the Ubuntu Linux folks are still proud to say their stuff not only runs on Dell kit still, but that it's available to purchase and have supported direct from Dell:

"purchase Ubuntu on Dell"
