my wifi is unreliable and I don't know why. (os x, dsl)

my two year-old macbook pro recently got a new cousin: a new mbp. both are running 10.6.4. my old mbp never had any problems establishing a wifi connection to my dsl modem, which is protected using wpa2. my new mbp sometimes can't connect via wifi/airport to said dsl modem. I usually get "connection timeout" errors displayed if I manually select the network. this is at the same time as my old mbp sitting right next to it is connected. [more inside]

Best 4g broadband deal in Seattle?

4g Wireless broadband in Seattle: I'm considering replacing my Qwest DSL with 4g wireless broadband. (A cable modem solution isn't available in my building.) Also, I think I'd be purchasing the home modem version of the plan upon which I decide. I have plenty of mobile internet with my iPhone. Fast enough to stream netflix is my benchmark. It seems like Sprint is the best deal. What say you? Thanks!

Losing my (free WiFi) connection

When I start a wifi session (at a coffee shop for instance), the bubble will say "additional login may be required" which, when I open a web page, is just an "I accept" disclaimer. BUT, when I have to turn off the computer (reboot for windows update, go to the bathroom, etc) and then try to re-establish contact, it won't work. I can't get connected and I can't get the login screen. I've tried everything I can think of to get it to work but it just seems like I have to come back the next day. Any tricks to get me back on?

controlling wifi access by MAC address

I have a Linksys WRT110 router. Although it has some access controls, I find them difficult to use and counterintuitive, and I say this as someone who has been using computers since the days of the TRS-80. Is there a router out there that will let me limit access times by MAC address of different devices, either by a daily quota or a cutoff time? [more inside]

Is wifi in schools a bad idea?

I've been doing some talking and thinking about WiFi in my community, and someone recently brought up the issue of wifi in schools. Apparently, parents want wifi to be banned in schools because after the introduction of wireless networks, their children are showing strange symptoms. Does anyone know of any evidence or studies done on this? [more inside]

Short term mobile internet in France

How can I get pseudo-mobile internet in France for just two months? There are wifi hot spots all over but the prices seem outrageous, presumably the unlimited wifi is only for DSL customers? I'd happily tether to my N900 or buy a separate GSM modem. Any recommendations? It seems odd if Orange's Mobicarte the is the cheapest?

Best NYC park location with free & reliable wifi?
