"What fresh hell is this?"

Crap. Same model and year as mine. Hopefully their fusible links were not all set the same...
AT,"No 'puter boutique in the 'hood that's open on "holidays"?"Nope. Some non-business-sense-having slave-to-the-dollar moron is going to get my dollar, much as I'd rather spend it with a local entrepreneur.Too bad, so sad.When I tell you it's raining soup and you come out with a teaspoon instead of a kettle, what am I supposed to think?
6 years! Wow. I seem to get 3-4 on average with the home stuff. You will not like the "easy setup" fluff. The old school browser interface is still there though.
In Cisco marketing speak, your router has turned into a very restrictive firewall.
Wish I'd known you were in the market. Have a spare WRT54G v1.0 running Tomato firmware sitting on the shelf right here...
"When I tell you it's raining soup and you come out with a teaspoon instead of a kettle, what am I supposed to think?"I have to say I prefer my soup by the spoonful so as to select what is worth eating and what ain't. Quality vs. quantity and all that.Granted there's a lot less good homemade soup out there these days, but plenty of that watered-down crap that has some running around with their kettles and who will stomach anything as long as it's (perceived as) cheap enough...so sad.Garbled the eff out of that little metaphor didn't I? AT
"Garbled the eff out of that little metaphor didn't I? "Effin' A right you did.When your landlord tells you he needs 3 quarts of soup for the monthly nut, tell him you have 3 ounces, but it's really high quality. Get back to me with his answer. ;)-T.
Back to the subject at hand, my Linksys (pre Cisco) ver1 router is going on 11 years now - all over the world, and for ~6 years running a hacked OS to boost transmit power. Mongo like Cisco!
"When your landlord tells you he needs 3 quarts of soup for the monthly nut, tell him you have 3 ounces, but it's really high quality. Get back to me with his answer. ;)"If it's really high quality then add water to make 3 qts. Now THAT'S how you eff up a metaphor.A different Nony Mouse
"If it's really high quality then add water to make 3 qts."4 qts. It's really really high quality, and I gotta make a profit. :0) AT
Sorry, AT, your mortgage holder is a slave to the dollar. ;)
The landlord's actually a former Ford dealer (got out at the peak and made it large) with a penchant for vintage Rolex watches and gold coins. One of the few things, along with guns the way Coal Creek does 'em, that Wally can't do but I and/or CC can. Got him by the balls. AT
Going on seven years with this Linksys box, which impresses me, since everyone says my modem (a Terayon) is a complete and utter piece of, um, organic residue, and I tend to have things fail in classical cascade fashion.
Remember when transistors were supposed to last right next to forever? I guess when you get a whole gob of them all together the odds don't work so well in favor of the mythical "user" anymore.
No wonder I could not find a reference. It's been obsolete for about 6-7 years.I was hoping to find you a replacement today as I ran around on my publicity tour today. I got over 50 routers, 30 of them wireless, from thrift shops, for less than 20 bucks. I couldn't find one of your model.
I've found that some routers are sensitive to near-by lightening strikes. I always have a spare on hand. They're cheap enough now that I buy 2 and keep one for a spare.
