Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hey all, my brother and I are in the market for a new router after discovering our current POS WTG624 doesn't do DHCP correctly (so we can't play together in some online games). Started doing some looking around and we've got some things we're considering, but also some questions.
We're considering buying a Linksys WRT54GL, Linksys brand seems generally recommended as well as this particular model as a cost effective unit. These are good, yes?
I also keep hearing about DD-WRT, which is apparently custom router firmware? I'm seen several glowing comments on it, including in this forum, however I do have a couple questions. My brother and I aren't terribly savvy when it comes to computer networking, is this thing hard to install and/or will it make configuring the network a pain in the ass?
Also, I've seen mentions of "Tomato" which, from context, I am assuming is another kind of router firmware? Can anyone tell me about it? I know I could google it, and I will, but I like having people tell me their views and opinions on this kind of stuff.
Basically we're just looking for something that will work as easily and painlessly as possible and let us play BF:BC2 and some other games together. Thanks for reading and helping.
