I have some questions for you guys:

Do any of you guys have comcast internet that has a wired AND wireless connection?

What router do you use?

Was it provided by comcast?

I have a phone modem and a netgear 614 that they provide, but it severly lags when gaming and on wireless in general. (Speedtest says 30bps on my desktop and I get anywhere from 2-15 bps on my laptop and ps3.)


It might be your router or the laptop.

From the netgear model, it looks like the best it can do is 802.11g.

Does your laptop use 802.11 a/b/g/n?

The Orland Park location has a mild selection of pre PS2/GCN/Xbox games. The cool part is that they have a buy 2 get 1 game free if it is $3.99 and under.

You pretty much just need to go and see. It's all about who sold them what, so it's all down to luck on what is in stock. I've seen stuff all the way back to old Atari's from time to time in those stores. I'm sort of a poor judge on what that kinda stuff is worth, because I'm pretty sentimental with my old games. Therefore, whether the prices are any good is subjective. I will say this, though, you stand a much better chance of seeing systems themselves then you do a good selection of games. I usually always see at least some nes/snes/psx/n64's there. Check out Half-Price Books as well. Seen some neat old stuff in those stores too.

Do any of you guys have comcast internet that has a wired AND wireless connection? No, in fact I bought my own cable modem with docsis 3.0.

What router do you use? Netgear WNDR3700 (it was been rock solid)

Was it provided by comcast? Nope, laid down the cash and has been totally worth it.


Thanks for mentioning this! I'm looking hard at ordering it because my wife is tired of not having wifi at home for her iPhone, and my daughter wants access on her PC, and I was jealously keeping the connection wired for gaming.

I just went to West Dundee since I visited my parents. All games are 20% off. Hardware is not discounted. The store was about half empty already. I don't think there is much left at this point.

I might check out Matteson if the discount increases. I'm not hurting for anything but if I can hit 50% on something than cool.

They already closed the 87th & Dan Ryan Best Buy about a week or two ago which was the closest one to me so never got a chance for any deals. :cry: Sad thing is this was where I got my Nintendo Wii when it was was very tough to get a hand on one. Ironically it was also where the closest Toysrus for me was before it closed & Best Buy took it over, so that location really does not have the best track record.

Funny thing is I lucked out got the last Killzone 3 Helghast Edition from the downtown Best Buy that is NOT going out of business for $24.50. The box was a little beat & book had a dent in it but the figure, helmet & game was in excellent condition. I was surprised to see that the included Helghast Edition Voucher was still good even though it said it expired 9/1/11. Awesome deal, lucky timing. :D

I've considered this deal, too, as I got Top Spin 4 from a similar deal in the past. Jewel's advertised some Langers juice cocktail blends at $2.49 per bottle right now:

I had to run out anyway, so I stopped in Meijer. They seem to only have the 64 oz 2.49 bottles. I believe Jewel and Woodmans are supposed to have a larger selection.

Quick story...this past Saturday night I went to the Galloping Ghost Arcade on Ogden in Brookfield, a sweet old school arcade run by people who care about keeping that scene alive, and was eating at an awesome thai place right down the street beforehand.

Reason this is funny is the place is ULTRA small (like 5 tables small) and people kept coming up to my wife and I and asking if we were there for the " dot com meetup for the arcade"...immediately I was like "is there a Chicago CAG meetup tonight?"

I guess it was because I was wearing a Nintendo "Who Are You?" hoodie that I got from my Game Crazy days...
