I am trying to setup a router with DD-WRT & OpenVPN so that I can stream content from Netflix/Hulu etc. when living outside the US. However, every time I connect to the VPN service my PC connected to the router loses internet connectivity. [more inside]

I'm going on an overnight bike ride tonight, and I think I'm fine with all my supplies except for routing. I've got a handlebar mount for my phone, but I need a mapping app which I can use overnight which won't affect my night vision, and will save energy. Is there an Android app which I can import a .GPX file into and which can follow my progress and make sure I don't miss any turns on a minimal grey on black street map? I'm in the UK and all the route will be on Open Street Map.

I have a new laptop on which I run Windows 2008 Server R2 on. I'll be using it for demos and such as well as an opportunity to learn more about the features of R2. I didn't know you can't use Hyper-V with a wireless card, so I'm forced to do some finagling to get the VMs to talk to the outside world. What I'd like, though, is for machines on the network be able to access VMs. [more inside]

I'm looking for PC/Laptop map routing software with turn-by-turn control, where you can define the origin, destination, and stops along the way and then traverse the suggested route junction by junction, making changes (such as specifying a turn at a specific location) along the way, with the remainder of the route automatically recalculated following each change.

I have two Cisco 2610 routers, each with WIC-1DSU-T1 cards. We have a Point-to-Point between two locations and I am using these to route the traffic between.
The lines belong to Verizon and the AdTran cards are locked in a Verizon box. I can look in and see the status lights through the top. Each location has a RJ48X loopback jack.
When I plug in the Cisco at Location 1 it seems to hook up fine, and the carrier detect light pops up. (Which is strange to me because our PTP is unmonitored and I thought the CD would only come on when equipment is plugged into both ends.)
Then when I go and plug in the Cisco at Location 2, I get no lights, no nothing. I check the lights in the Verizon box and an alarm is triggered with a red LED. I disconnect the Cisco and it clears the alarm.
How can I figure out what the problem is? I had the company that provides the PTP come and check the circuit originally and they said they found problems but that the problems had gone away now. Is it possible that the WIC-1DSU-T1 card in this router is faulty?
Any help is appreciated!

I've been trying unsuccessfully to figure out how to route a channel in a piece of plexiglass for quite a while and now, having run out of ideas, I turn to the hive mind for help.
I've tried both a Dremel and a full-size router, but since they both spin at high RPMs (even at the Dremel's lowest setting), the plastic winds up melting and burring all over my bits as well as turning opaque due to the heat. My goal is to make the channel as translucent as possible, and I believe that I can put the plexiglass sheet in an oven after routing causing the plastic to smooth out and clear up any opaque areas caused by roughness. Can anyone recommend the proper combination of tool, bit, speed and technique to achieve my goal? Note that I am not wedded to plexiglass; I just need a very translucent material that I can carve channels into. [more inside]

I'm in need of several anonymous IPs. AOL DSL used to allow you to get many IPs that weren't tied to a specific region.
For example, I want a way to get 20 ips that are not just :
Best would be :
Different.Different.Different.Different, but anything in between would be ok.
They must be broadband, but can be located anywhere in the world. Using a VPN to tunnel to the IPs is also fine.
This sounds sketchy and illegal, but it's not. It's for my business, which has unusual requirements.
