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.

The money was left in a bag at a parking lot nearby Särkänniemi amusement park. Then things went wrong. The blackmailer took the bag. Police, however, lost track of the blackmailer and the money was gone.

I also thought the review was overly wordy and hard to parse. For example:

One of the ways Stapleton brings his broad experience to the book is in the many areas where he compares different types of cryptosystems, technologies and algorithms. This enables the reader to understand what the appropriate type of authentication is most beneficial for the specific requirement.

Could easily be written as:

Stapleton compares different types of cryptosystems, technologies and algorithms.

Leaving plenty of space to list more concrete information from the book, like the Parent suggested: a table of contents.
