Laptops make the best routers
It has finally been decided to use my laptop as the router for our home network 'cause it gets the fastest connection (49.2). The USR that my dad has in the big computer maxs out around 36 / 39 so I didn't want to go back to that, and the new external AOpen modem (which would have solved SO many problems) maxs out somewhere around 26. That is just too slow for me. Not cool, not cool at all. Why we didn't do this a long time ago? I don't know.

How's your battery? Some don't like being plugged in all of the time, so you might want to take it out if your laptop will be on 24/7.
yeah, you definitely don't want to go messing with your battery. (especially if your 1-year Manuf. Warranty is up...)
hmm. that reminds me, I should call Futureshop.. (they've had mine for like a month and half now..)
Ya, on that note my dad had my laptop and took it downstairs and it died in like 1 minute. I thought that the battery was now toast (much to my dismay), but right now I am running it just off the battery and it seems to be draining at the normal rate. But I'll consider taking the battery out... thanks.
