  1. AFAIK, it doesn't do it by some cache in your browser buy by analyzing keywords on your page.
  2. So, you responded to what I said to repeat what I said? I guess I should look in the options to see how to turn off notifications for replies. Edit: Found it!
  3. Ok, here's the thing. You're not likely to find one of the routers that can run these custom firmware packages in the big box store. There is a WRT54GL which runs the linux kernel, but I'm not sure how many of the firmware packages work with that model. As for using it to extend the wireless network--yes, you can. I have my house set up with the two routers as WDS. The problem with this is it effectively cuts your speed down quite a bit because it's exchanging all network traffic between the two routers. However, it still works great and you'll likely be able to max out most home connections with only two routers in a WDS setup.
  4. Start, Run, services.msc See if "DHCP Client" shows as started.
  5. Great. Now show me the wireless drivers download section. I'm not asking you to be sure, I'm trying to help the OP.
  6. There's no problem with the program like that. First things first... you can't even get the drivers directly from Broadcom. I have quite a bit of experience with the Broadcom chips under several different operating systems and manufacturers, and can assure you the program is not "problematic". It merely provides information. Knowing how to use it is the key.
  7. http://ping.inexistent.us/UNKNOWNDEVICES.zip Download that off of my server (you can search around the 'net for the newer version if you don't trust me) and give us the exact details of the model number. It'll have a vendor number and a device number.
  8. Reset the router to factory defaults, see if you can get a connection. Perhaps DHCP is just disabled or maybe the DHCP client on the local PC is disabled.
  9. Vista should be able to use IP6 right out of the box. However, it uses Teredo, and really sucks. I don't think Road Runner offers native IP6, so you're stuck with what you've got right now (Teredo). Start, run, cmd ping -6 orange.kame.net
  10. That, or there was really nothing wrong, and a "untechy" person is fooled by programs like Ad-Aware that claims these "tracking cookies" are spyware. My dad also runs Ad-Aware quite often and always wonders how he gets so much spyware on there, thinking somebody must be doing something wrong.
  11. VLC may have taken association with .bin files, but it doesn't mean that it's the only program that uses these types of files. Bin stands for binary. Your router's web interface will allow you to upload this binary package. Don't open it or try to or burn it to a cd or do anything except upload it to the router. The firmware download page likely had instructions.
  12. Upload is likely slow because it's Rev 0. Glad my thread turned into what I was absolutely trying to avoid.
  13. 15" is still 15" no matter how you swing it. And higher resolution isn't "higher-end". And what's so different about desktop monitors and laptop monitors? Basically, the monitor is the workspace, yes? Let's compare it to an old fashioned workspace--a desk (gasp!). 4 feet wide, 3 feet deep. If I make things on my desk smaller, I can fit more things on it. Say a folder is 1'x1'. I can fit 12 folders on my desk. If I make my folders smaller (6"x6") do I have more space? Sure, but it doesn't make a 6"x6" folder "high-end". With that logic, I can make my folders 3"x3" and be top-of-the-line. Sure, I can't read the folder. I can't even read what the tab says nor flip the pages in it, but I have more space. Higher-end doesn't in any way mean higher resolution. Resolution should match the users' needs. Someone who struggles to read would love a 19" at 1024x768 while I'm perfectly fine with 15.4"w at 1280x800.
  14. It's not that. Certain HA's use some sort of compression. I did make that point in my original post and asked not to post them, but I guess that was "overlooked".
  15. I've always liked the 300C. Beautiful car. The only problem is (and really the only reason I wouldn't buy one if I could afford to) that it's manufactured by Chrysler. But I must admit, it's got style.
  16. You hit a car with a tractor?
  17. That was a good laugh... Both of mine are in the first one... need a good bath.
  18. ftp://ftp1.optonline.net/test512 Start downloading that file... give it about a minute and see what your BROWSER says the download rate is. Please, say exactly what the browser says, do not change the capitalization. I have a feeling you're not being cheated at all, but don't understand the difference between Mb and MB.
  19. Some of those plugs have spring resistance instead. Push to expose the hole, insert wire, spring resistance keeps them there. Subsat 7 Subwoofer satellite, 2-7" woofer, 2-4" mid, 2-1" tweeter 93-96 125 watts $750.00/set
  20. 1.8mbit on a T1 isn't possible. I must say your test was somehow quirked.
  21. I had the RTL8139 in my old Compaq desktop and 0 problems with it. But anyway, on to the informative part of this post: your NIC should have nothiong to do with a modem rebooting by itself.
  22. Replace the NIC? Assuming you've tried a different cable. Are the pins bent by chance? Sounds like a hardware error more than a software error.
  23. Could you run a test early in the morning? Perhaps your node is just far too congested. My uncle's speeds exceed 12mbit, but right now he's having trouble with low speeds and high latency in the evening.
  24. Curious about the speeds everyone is getting, and where you're getting them. I'm in southwestern Michigan, in the sticks, near Jackson. These speeds are about the norm for me. Actually, they're usually better in Linux. ::::::::::.. testmy.net test results ..:::::::::: Download Connection is:: 936 Kbps about 0.94 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 114 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 494 Kbps about 0.5 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB) Upload Speed is:: 60 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2007/05/23 - 8:07pm D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-L3JFYO7SD U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-4QL2TRE6V User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; IEMB3; IEMB3) Note: If your speed test shows over 2.4Mbps, please don't post it. It's inaccurate, faked, corrupted. Simply put, not real. Read the page about ##DATA tuning because your HA is using a transparent proxy with compression.
  25. Usually just changing the MAC of the network device attached to the modem, then unplugging the modem and plugging it back in will get you a new IP.
