  1. I'm upgrading to RCN's 50mbps internet and I'm in need of a new router. I've been a Linksys fan in the past, but I've been reading lots of negative reviews about their newer products. Any suggestions?
  2. I will be moving this weekend, and I will need to cancel my DSL service. I signed up for a 1 year contract, which expired on 09/12. Does Verizon give you a hard time about canceling, or is it a smooth process?
  3. Thanks for the help. I'm sure there's a rule against using foul language, so I'll keep my thoughts to myself.

  8. First off, let me say the I HATE Verizon. I had no choice, so that's why I have it. I have the 3 Mbps service and it is VERY slow. Are there any settings that will give me more speed?? Thanks!
  9. What can I do to speed this up? ::::::::::..

  10. I'd like to know what's involved as well. I live in an apartment and I am interested in FIOS, but I don't know if it's feasible. Also, I have read that they need to install stuff on your computer and I'm not sure I want any junk on there cluttering it up. Is it not as simple as plugging it into your modem and/or router??
  11. I bought it and installed it myself. I built the PC.
  12. Yeah. I have a tv card in my computer, but no cable nearby. I am looking for a solution that would enable me to use it without running wires.
  13. Is there a product that can wirelessly transmit a tv cable signal?
  14. I got a Linksys wireless card and it works great.
  15. Looks like I am getting a PCI card. Thanks for all the replies!
  16. It's obivously not work the cost. I have a Linksys wireless router. Should I get a linksys wireless card? Would a USB dongle be good enough?
  17. So I can't use one modem upstairs and another downstairs? If that's the case then what is a good wireless card for my desktop??
  18. I have Comcast cable internet and I just hooked up a new computer. Can I use a different modem to connect to the internet than the one on my other computer?
  19. I know the cable is more important. I really want to change it.
  20. I just put my computer in a different room and the end is off the cable coming out of the wall. What kind of ends should I get to replace them? Gold? I would love to replace the cable, but that isn't an option. I don't have the tool to do it, are they expensive?
  21. What is a good cable signal booster? I need one and running new wire is not an option at this point.
  22. I just got a new laptop and I need to set up outlook to run with my DSL connection. How do I do it? Thanks!
  23. I'm using XP. I realize my error now, thanks.
  24. When I try to use cable fast 9x settings, I get this error. What's the problem?
