What am I doing wrong? Wireless broadband edition. [more inside]
A couple of times a week, our internet craps out. Is this our modem, our ISP, and/or our router? [more inside]
I currently use AT&T as our broadband ISP at home. Our five-year-old modem/router just died, and since it's so old, AT&T tells me that it's no longer under warranty, and I have to buy a new one myself. Then they directed me to an AT&T Wireless retail store to go buy the equipment. But can they force me to buy one of their routers? What if I can find a comparable one cheaper somewhere else? Can they refuse me customer service or deny me installation help (which I will need - I'm hopelessly n00bulous in this department) if I don't by an "official" AT&T router? [more inside]
My internet connection has always had issues, but recently those issues have gotten exponentially worse. Comcast is the only constant in this equation, but they claim that the signal they're sending is strong! I need it fixed ASAP, what can I try? [more inside]
I sometimes have trouble with downloading via torrent: surfing becomes a slow crawl/not an option. [more inside]
How dumb would it be to reset the modem/router provided my my ISP? [more inside]
Is there any advantage to having a router and cable modem made by the same company, or is it better to go best of breed in both cases regardless of maker? [more inside]
Is there a way to combine two broadband internet connections? For the time being, I have two ISPs, one cable and the other DSL. They both have their own modems. If possible, I'd like to use both at once and double my throughput.
Which nationwide dial-up ISP has the best coverage / most access numbers? I’m heading on a trip across the northern half of America and back through the south, and I need internet access for my laptop. SBC has quite a few. What are some other choices?
