    Internet Issues

    Found out that yesterday that my hardwired cable that runs upstairs from my downstairs modem/router/wireless, went out. I have a cousin who is making me a new one (100 ft long!) and mailing it to me. I do have wireless but it sucks pretty hard and probably won't be able to play any preseason games. I am going to try with Ox tomorrow, but the signal is pretty bad, I can barely log on. If this hardwire doesn't work then I am up a creek and looking for some solutions. I just wanted to let you guys know where I stand. I've only played 1/2 a game and the thing has been out almost 2 weeks!

    Nate, I am sure your contact will get the cable to you quick but for future reference, monoprice.com has 100ft of Cat5 cable going for about $15.00 shipped.

    They are stupid cheap with their prices and the quality is great.

    I purchased a bracket to mount my 55" plasma on my wall for $13.00 freaking dollars. Other places were selling brackets for upwards of $100.00.

    No sir, well at least I dont think it is. The cable wouldn't work on my Mac so I am sure it's the cable.
