Comment Re:Since when? (Score 1) 225

Insurance comapnies had seen this before with Hurricane Betsy in New Orleans and Hurricane Camille in South Mississippi. They knew that huge-ass storms could come through and level the places and they knew the value of all the property. They relied on the out that Federal Flood insuance gives them on their policies. Except that when Katrina came through, it brought more water than Camille or Betsy ever did, so people got flooded who were living higher than the 500-year floodplain.

It was just a giant mess, but it wasn't helped that everyone involved made bad choices. I say this as a native of Biloxi, MS.

I removed the possibility of crosstalk with my cable modem by separating the coax running to my office from the rest of the coax in the house. This way, the MI424WR's sit on a single piece of coax and only talk to themselves. I have purchased 3 MI424WR's total as one of the original two I purchas3ed for this use died mysteriously after 6 months. It could have been more an environmental failure (office, small space, pet fur) than hardware, but I'm reconfiguring my desktop layout to account for this.

That said, I enjoy having the hardwire connection when my 30-foot, through-three-walls, oft-dropped WiFi connection annoyed me to hell and back.
