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!
For 3 years I have had a Linksys WRT54GS (I believe that is the model), Wireless B/G router with "speedbooster". Lately it has been losing its wireless signal randomly and we have to reset the router before it will work again.
I decided to buy a new router, and after looking around I decided on:
I get it home, get it set up, everything connected correctly.
I put in my PPPoE details, and save them. I open up a web page... it doesnt load.
I make sure I typed in everything correctly, and it still doesnt load.
To make sure its a problem with the router I plug the ethernet cable straight into my computer, and I can connect to the internet just fine with a PPPoE connection, and everything works.
I plug it back into the old router, and I can connect to it and I can browse the internet.
I plug it back into the new D-Link router, and it doesnt work.
In the configuration settings for this router, there must be 500 different "security" settings that are all turned on by default to make sure you never browse the web with the router.
I will probably be returning it today to try a different brand, which will hopefully make a working router.
I am thinking about trying linksys again, since except for the random dropped connections lately, has worked wonderfully.
