randy, remember how you said your wireless was running slower than a 14k modem? well...my desktop has the same problem too! i just installed a wireless card on my desktop, and its slow as hell, not sure if its because the cheap card i used or the computers problem!
I got rid of the wireless router, went with a cable, and it's fast as ever now...

I just deployed a wireless LAN at home with two laptops and a cable broadband. I did not notice any problem on connection speed at all ... in fact, thing is pretty smooth !!

perhaps my home here in Singapore is smaller than what you guys have in US ...

The wireless cards seem to work for about 6 months, then start to shit out on me... Dont know if they just wear out or what.

Very true... So I guess the idea is to sell something that will be outdated or break in a few months

BTW, looks like I'm gonna pick up a 1/12 scale car, are the foams for those just as cheap?

What do 36R's go for?
