Comment Re:Don't buy these--they WERE wonderful (Score 1) 180

5) Speed: The WRT54G maxed out ~20Mbit (wired) and 6-12Mbit (wireless) running Tomato. The RT-N66U does around 50/225Mbit wireless/wired and the RT-AC68U pushes 400/900.

I get around 42Mbit routed throughput wired, with firewall enabled, QOS disabled running dd-wrt on a wrt54gl. Far more than your 20mbit, but still i think this is the keypoint where this device has aged too much.

A football weights more and goes faster, fortunately they dont have to be registered. I think a better approach would be to regulate where you can fly. I just started on RC flying in Denmark, we have regulations that says you cant fly 5km from an airfield, above 100meter or near streets,near accidents and some other rules that ought to be common sense for most. If it was mandatory to register as RC pilot first, and complete a simple rc-license-test , i think the growing number of accidents could be reduced dramatically , with little impact of those who fly by the rules.

Canadians are lucky, us in Denmark are censored and billed in a way that will make north koreans laugh. We are being blocked from sites operating in other EU countries that sells real estate, because of a civil copyright dispute between 2 estate companies, still the court have ordered ISP's to block acces to the site ( . Other gambling sites are also blocked in similar cases as the topic, to gain revenue to the government supported gambling site. Top of the cake is that we have to pay 2460 DKK (360 USD) pr year for "being able to acces Danish Radios website". Anyone with a personal computer or smartphone , must pay this media license, regardless if you use their website or not. We must pay not because we use the service, but because "we are capable of". So dear Canada, while you have my sympathy, i just want to let you know it could be much worse.

I am more worried that they will screw up like the Danish provider YouSee did, they HAD a similar hot-spot system. Atleast until someone found a security flaw in the modem/router, permitting access from the guest network to the customers netowkr. This is a disaster waiting to happen again. The hotspot service is still closed, despite it happened in march.

The CompuTrace solution is available on the majority of business notebooks, being a HP freak myself i can confirm it is available in most probook and elitebook series, while not available in the pavilion(private) segment. Fujitsu Siemens and Lenovo (and probably others) offer it too. It is not free, but should be considered as an insurrance. Hardware based solution is only way to go ,if the junkie that steals it cant surf porn on it right away, it will be reinstalled and all the fancy software solutions are gone.
