To compete with Google [Chrome] they need to not rely on Google for 90% of their funding.

As long as the ads are clearly marked with no privacy implications (no pre-fetch of those sponsored tiles that sends cookies, exec's javascript, pings 40 trackers, etc.) then I support the move.

It's sad, but if Mozilla dies, will any free software group fill their void? The Net would never be the same...

So does "Paleo" involve capturing wild goats or sheep, feeding and milking them for many days to get enough cream to make butter?

I guess it depends how long in the past we are talking about. Early nomadic people didn't have domesticated animals they herded around. Even the dog is only ~ 30k years old.

I have no idea how those work, I would assume the channel guide is an external web service and is not hosted by the Actiontec router.

It's worth a try, you can always restore the router to it's default. It's not like you're flashing the firmware of the Actiontec, just changing some settings.

Do the same thing. Setup the Actiontec to ONLY speak DSL and pass through the PPPoE connection to your router of choice. Thus your router of choice does the PPPoE authentication, and does NAT, and optionally wifi. As it now knows your external IP every time it changes, it can more easily use various dynamic DNS providers.
