Hey, look – an upgrade!

Posted in Geekery on May 8th, 2005

Yes folks, it’s pretty boring around here indeed, because I’m writing about a new router here at Chez Wolfie. We upped to a Linksys WRT54G, instead of the combination ancient D-Link+Sony WiFi AP.

So, now we are up in the 802.11g range for wireless, with a much stronger signal here in the garage. I also took advantage of the shuffle to redo some of the wiring behind my desk, which cleared some tangles out. The true test comes this weekend though, when BtheFormerRoomie becomes BtheNeighbor – if he can link his WiFi kit to mine, he’ll just pitch in rather than transferring his current provider. Should it work, I’ll more than likely be bumping my service up a notch to compensate.

One of the other benefits is that the new router enables proper port forwarding, so I can let external connections in to our game servers when they are active.

Hey Impact – you need to pick up a copy of Mechwarrior Mercenaries! :)
