Home Networking Via Cable Modem & Linksys Wireless Router

February 3, 2008 at 2:32 pm | Posted in Tech | Leave a comment

A little detail usually is going to drive you crazy… Recently just switched my ISP provider from Verizon DSL to Optimum Online, and connected my Linksys Wireless Router WRK54G to Cable Modem. I forgot that router still has Verizon DSL setting which has PPPoE connection; but Optimum requires “Automatic Configuration – DHCP”. No wonder none of my LAN PCs can connect to Web…

After Googling Linksys Tech Support page, you can either reset the router to its default by pressing the reset button on the back of you router for 15 seconds or following these steps to configure manually.

Don’t forget to perform the power cycle of devices – PC, Modem and Router if there is still has no connection. Just a little detail…. 🙂

Verizon DSL Termination

I wrote on Sept ’07 that I have a problem with Verizon DSL connection and its tech support team. I finally made up my mind to cancel this service and go for Optimum Online. I called up to cancel on Nov. 24 when I experienced the same connection problem and waited for a few hours to get it back up; Verizon is so “generous” that gave me two more days… fifteen minutes before I wrote this blog and the connection got terminated.

I have to use my next door’s wireless connection to finish this… Sorrrry for “stealing” the signal.

Want a SSD for your MacBook Air and your notebook computers? You have to pay the price… SSD may be a replacement for HDD in the future but it’s costly now. Its additional $900 – $1000 adder if you would like to have a SSD in your system instead of “traditional” HDDs.

HDDs store data on its spinning platters and the parts are vulnerable to shock and vibrations; on the other hand, SSDs is more robotic and run more faster then HDDs because they don’t have moving parts. The picture on the left is tradition HDD and SSD on the right. Hey, you want something more advance, of course it gets to hurt you 😉
