DanZero: It's bad enough the cable company here locks you out of tweaking the modem/router because too many people didn't know how to work the farking web interface -- and you cannot log into the modem to make it a bridge with your own router until you give them a call for the username/password to get inside it. Stuck with their SSID and weak ass encryption too./at least its 40mbps
NBSV: So what if they loose all their owners that watch porn and/or illegally download things. That couldn't be more than a couple of hundred people. Right?Moral high ground? I guess if your into that sorta thing. Thinking 100% of your customers aren't watching porn and/or downloading something they shouldn't once in a whole is just stupid.
lordargent: // The cheapest linksys I could find with a built in USB port was an E2100L for $105
IronTom: I've been waiting for them to go to USB3, in order to be more compatible with the current external drives.
IronTom: I recall hearing that there is already a law that any time you look at a porn pic, a message is sent to the administration (or something like that). This sounds like an expanded result of that.
babtras: All the talk of OpenWRT and DD-WRT (excellent distros) makes me want to chime in, no matter how late to the party I might be.I cast my vote in favour of pfSense on mini-ITX rigs. Enterprise class firewall / router Free-BSD distro. I have acted as a cheerleader for this for the last couple of years and have brought several of my Network Engineer colleagues into the light. I am proud to report that I have costed Cisco a ton of business by having pfSense deployed on HP ProLiant hardware where big ASA / PIX, and router deployments would normally have happened. The fact that you can perform CARP failover, redundant WAN connections, and can acquire enterprise support for peanuts (often a requirement of company policies) makes pfSense a no-brainer.
gingerjet: Durendal: This is why God made DD-WRT. I find it funny that companies like Cisco, with tons of money, total knowledge of the product, and expertise for this sort of thing, still crank out firmware that's absolute crap compared to what some guys put together in their spare time.DD-WRT is completely shiat. The third time it crashed, it reset its settings back to its default which created an open wireless access point. I threw the whole thing out./using a netgear n600 now - not a single problem//generally like cisco for anything but security///juniper certified
