It's just that all the many many other times I've had problems, I could see that at least one of the lights that were supposed to be on wasn't on. This was the first time nothing "looked wrong".
Did you actually believe someone was serious in stating that "Mobs of people are the most rational..."?
Couldn't even ping 18.104.22.168, so I suspect it was more than just a problem turning URLs into numerical addresses.
It was so weird to have problems and still have all the lights on the modem lit up (except standby).
Unfortunately there's no novelty factor in having problems with it in general.
Tell us exactly what model phone and exactly what brand and model battery.
That way you have a better chance of catching the attention of someone with experience with what you need.
Otherwise I wave you in the vague direction of Batteries+

I've got a stack of 4 close enough to grab with my left hand and soon it'll be a stack of 5.
2 are BEFSR41s, and only one of the 54s has the wireless part turned on, I just need all of the places to plug in Ethernet cables.
Well, they certainly had a problem with it motherboard-wise.
I've been running a WRT-54GL for about that long but instead of running Tomato, I run DD-WRT. Runs very well too. My only complaint was that after months and months the Broadcom chip gets hot. So having studied electronics and worked building remote sensing circuit boards for oilfield, I know that heat kills electronics, and I did the only sane thing: put together a nice little heat sink, got some heat sink grease (thermal silicone grease), and stuck the heat sink to the top of the Broadcom chip. The whole thing gets warm, but the chip doesn't get hot, and it will stay running for many more years. As far as performance: yes it only has (802.11)b and g (but not n). Still, 802.11g is good enough for me to wirelessly stream movies (dvd, not blu-ray) to an LG box connected to the tv via an hdmi cable (dlna). If you really want to start your search (and want to run Tomato) start by looking on the Tomato web site and see what routers are supported. I know the dd-wrt site lists supported routers.
It's not that hard to mount an old 486 or Pentium fan in there.
Careful with heat. I've had two of these fail due to popped capacitors.
Are you sure that wasn't due to some "capacitor plague" capacitors still being in the supply chain pipeline?
Or is the only router ever produced that actually looks good is the wrt54G line?
I have yet to see another that does not look really bad.
They aren't bad looking but I've seen others that I think look better.
But I love the stackability.
... especially since Linksys is a subsidiary of Cisco who are the NSA's bitch.
No they're not. Cisco flogged Linksys off a year or more ago to Belkin - which, granted, is an even bigger reason to avoid them.
Since when has Belkin actually done any manufacturing of its own?
You didn't have it on a UPS?
Or did you let the idiot plug the drill into the UPS?
If you've got an old 486 or early Pentium cooling fan, mount it inside the 54G.
You can find +12V near the power inlet.
You can use plastic/nylon motherboard standoffs with the little button clipped off to hold the fan up in the air over the big chip.
Use RTV silicon caulking compound to glue them to the 54's motherboard.
This presupposes you have a soldering iron and a voltmeter, or at least a soldering iron and enough knowledge of power supplies to tell where the filter caps are.
I've got a stack of 54s and non-wireless BEFSR41s and putting a fan inside makes a world of difference.
Computer programming, in other words, has become a trade. Like nursing or welding, it's something in which a person can develop at least a basic proficiency within weeks or months. And once budding coders learn enough to get their first jobs, they get onto the same path to upward mobility offered to their in-demand, highly paid peers.""
