  1. Well... I guess I have seen just about everything. I agree with several of the posts... "who thinks of this stuff"?
  2. I sure wish they would make this across the board... It would take Comcast coming up with something similar to OOL to get Verizon's attention in Texas. But it would be sweet!!!
  3. OK... let's try this angle. Check the website of your router vendor and see if they have any forums. Check to see if anyone has had issues with the most recent upgrade... I have found in the past where some updates can create problems... where in most cases they improve things... but there are always exceptions. Just a thought...
  4. I know this might sound simplistic... but have you checked to see if there are any updates (firmware) for your router. That has helped me in the past.
  5. That is so cool... you see, I told you that you would get it... So... what do you think?? At this point... I cannot imagine what I would do without it. Ronnie
  6. I believe the site and/or company is Sunbelt Software. I did a search for Counterspy Software on Google... Yeah... I agree... you will never get everything... but it is programs like AVG, Spybot, etc.. that sure do help. Ronnie
  7. Hey Gang... We all have it and we all hate it... I was on CNET yesterday and found some software called Counterspy. I would imagine there are probably a few of you who already use this. I have Spybot and run it at least three to four times a week. I downloaded Counterspy yesterday and was totally shocked at what was on my system... that Spybot had missed. For those of you who already use this... post your comments. For those who don't try it. You may be surprised. Ronnie
  8. Welcome to the forum blueorder... and welcome to FIOS. Isn't it great!!! I do have a word of warning... you will probably have to go out and purchase a larger hard drive... It is amazing how fast and how much you can download.
  9. Just joking around with you VanBuren...
  10. Interesting... I got the same thing. I really haven't noticed because all I can run at work is IE... I just tried it at home... where I run both... and got the same thing you did.
  11. Hey billybob... What type of camera is it and what type of memory card are you using???
  12. 10/10 ... that's just wrong. I can remember, very recently, when 1mb was high speeds. Enjoy!!!
  13. Any updates from Verizon on when they will drop PPoE... It really isn't a bother... really just curious at this point. Cheers, Ronnie
  14. Thanks to all the mods... this is an excellent site. A great source of information and sharing!!! :icon_salut:
  15. .s1: Not all my problems... don't think I said that.
  16. Just me 2 cents... I like Firefox because it seems a little faster than IE... but there are also some downsides... I have run into a few sites that I cannot get to work because it is not IE... not enough to make me stop... but be aware of this. On the extensions... you will just have to try a few and see what you like. Good luck... I think you will like it.
  17. Best advice... once you get it cleaned... stay away from it. I used Norton for many years and always had problems. Funny thing was I had a system crash and ended up reloading everything... except Norton... all the previous issues I had went away. Plus... I didn't realize what a resource hog it was. Good luck...

    Verizon FIOS AVG=44ms
  19. A Terabyte... now that is some storage!?!? I would say... what would you do with all of that space... but you know... there are some people that could fill it up fast!!!!
  20. A very Happy Memorial Day... be safe!! A very special prayer to all our veterans... both present and past.
  21. Yes, they run the wire and outlet from the ONT to your PC. AND... they do an excellent job. I have only heard of rave reviews on their installations. Like I said... it is a good ideal to have an ideal of where you want things. Now on the ONT... they will install it next to your existing phone box on the side of your house. Good luck... please let us know how the install goes... and what you think of the service. Cheers, Ronnie
  22. Hey LoJT... Welcome to the forum... you WILL enjoy FIOS!! What package did you get?? OK... to answer a few of your questions... the ONT will go on the outside of your house. They will install the battery backup in your garage... so there needs to be a power outlet close. The will drill the battery backup connection through the wall from the ONT to the Battery Backup device. Whey they did mine I had already run the cable... mainly because I wanted Cat. 6. I would make sure you have a good ideal of where you want them to run the cable... they are there to help you... but also, they do not have all day. On the router... it will depend on the installer. I have read some posts where the installers didn't care what router was used... but most of them... require the initial connection to be through the Verizon supplied router... you can always change it when they leave. Hope this helps... Enjoy... Enjoy
  23. :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: Yeah... I see comcast pulling that one off.
