Wi-Fi and cell service drop out intermittently at our apartment. Why?

First, let me state that I have no idea if these two things are interrelated, but it seems like they could be, so I'm going to go ahead and conjecture here: our AT&T cell phone service drops from nearly full 3G to one bar from time to time (usually during calls, of course) and our wi-fi does the same thing. I've tried timing it and I can't seem to nail it down to anything. Could these service drops be related? [more inside]

Verizon doesn't want it, I don't want it -- what now?

Three years ago Verizon sent my roommate a modem; she not only never used it, she never opened the box. Three months ago my roommate moved to Australia and left lots of stuff behind. Three days ago I found that box, opened it, and found what was in it. Three minutes ago Verizon finally told me they don't want it back. Ethically and practically -- what should I do with it?

Will a 56k modem work well on a 256k ADSL connection?

Router Somehow Blocking Visibility of Printer from Machines

StupidRouterFilter: Suppose you have a DSL modem with a computer running XP coming out of it, with a printer attached. Two other machines coming out of the DSL modem can of course see the printer just fine. However, there is also a router coming out of the modem (don't ask), and none of the machines coming out of the router can see the printer. Is there any way to make them able to use that printer?
