  1. The only TV I will by is either a Sony or a Samsung. Have 1 of each.
  2. Wait a minute. You can actually install OSX on a PC?
  3. Be aware that when you get ready to play games on line you need to disconnect and then reconnect because Alltel will disconnect you every 12 hours. If you get disconnected in the middle of a game it will probably piss you off, it does me. Just some advice.
  4. Oops, forgot the link http://sewelldirect.com/evdo-wifi-router.asp
  5. Can anyone recommend a home networking cofiguration? My current setup is as follows: CDU550 plugged directly into my desktop's USB Desktop with card wired to Linksys WRT54G Another desktop wired to the router Wireless notebook The wired desktop seems to be sharing the connection fine, but I am having problems with the notebook. The notebook's wireless card is A netgear. It was working fine when i had hughes Hughes, but of course the hughes plugged directly into the router. When i go to my network places on the notebook, the other computers show up, but no internet connection.
  6. Anyone on EVDO getting disconnects? I have pretty good signal strength (100% -72dBm). Just wondering.

  8. it doesn't have anything on it about that. It's a Franklin Wireless CDU550, Dual Mode (800/1900 Mhz CDMA)
  9. Not sure what rev means. I am having trouble playing online though?
  10. I think I can finally get rid of the sucky Hughesnet service myself. I just got my EVDO card today from Alltel and I have 20 days to try it out. If my speed stays consistent with this speedtest, I can live with it. And no FAP...Hot damn!!!!!
  11. I don't know if anyone has alltel EV or not but i was wondering how the latency was as compared to hughesnet. I have just discoverd that i live in a brodband area. Will i be able to game online with it? Does it get loaded down during peak times, etc.? Any advice will be appreciated. I just tested my cell phone and it downloaded at about 500 kbps. That's pretty much my average with hughesnet
  12. Speed test happiness. Wish it would stay like this all day. :::..

  13. Samaung HP- S4253. It's pretty nice. Standard definition looks ok but I have notice some pixelation on dark scenes. I think it is called false contouring. But it's not hard to get used to.
  14. Thank you for your advice. I went ahead and went with the 360. I have had it about 3 hours now and I love it. I wish I had something other than STUPID Hughes internet. I'm sure gaming is not going to be as good online because of the lag issues. I am also impressed with the amount of add-ons available for the 360, and xbox live is pretty impressive as well.
  15. I am going to enter the console gaming market with the acquisition of my new plasma television . Please give me some feedback, based on your experiences, as to what is your preference and why. As always, everyone's expert opinion is appreciated.
  16. I agree. I have used them all and I think McAfee reigns supreme.
  17. Unity- I was in th exact same situation you were in and I requested a repoint, that is, someone came out and repointed my dish to a new satellite. I have had no problems since. Everyone, almost everyone, experiences some slowdown during peak hours, that can not not be avoided, but 9kbps is rediculous. I had similar speeds during peak hours until I got my repoint. Now my lowest speeds at any time is around 400 kbps which is acceptable.
  18. Anyone know how to get to the original setup screen for Gatekeeper so you can tell the program which service plan you have for FAP monitoring? I accidentally told it Professional, where I actually have PRO Plus. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted all registry entries, and everything. Everytime I reinstall it loads up with original settings like it never was uninstalled.
  19. I know this is a broadband forum, but I was wondering if anybody could weigh in. My wife and I are planning on moving from south central Virginia in 2 years. I have been searching the net and have narrowed my choices down to the following cities. 1. Colorado Springs, CO 2. Boise, ID 3. Medford, OR 4. Madison, WI If any TM members know anything about these areas and would like to weigh in I would appreciate it. I really value everyone's opinion on this site as everyone seems to be very knowledgeable on a broad spectrum of topics. I am currently working on my Associates Degree in Applied Computer Science, and my wife is in Finance. Main concern is crime, quality of life, and job availability. Thanks
  20. In my opinion, this is the best LCD TV on the market without stepping up to a 1080p capable tv, which, at the moment, is a waste of money because the only thing broadcast in 1080p would be the blu-ray disc player. Plus it's at a good price. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-32Cx48SUctW/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?I=158KD40XBR&wm=su
  21. Thanks alot, to both of you. I really enjoy reading this site. It is a world of information. Everyone seems to be so informative and nice. Happy New Year to all.
