Errr... What? Lol

I am sorry but LTE on phones are faster than most homes Internet speeds.

Anyway, you may also want to look into the new routers that are available. Wireless is slow if your using old technology. ;)

I used to love One Piece, but eventually stopped paying much attention to it. Then Shonen Jump skipped to Impel Down and I couldn't tell WTF was going on by the time Whitebeard made the scene. Haven't really kept up with it since and have no real desire to go back.

Wireless N600, I get a little over 2 MB/s, versus 125 MB/s on gigabit. So yes, slow.

Edit: Ok, 117 MB/s on gigabit.

Then your doing something wrong... And by the way it is mbps not MBps.

Your wireless receiver must either be old, or you have screwed up settings. Even when I used old wireless stuff back in the day, I got 50mbps. That was back when it was a/b only.

No, it's MBps. And there's no way you got 50 mbps on a/b/g, because the real limit is something like 18 mbps per direction, if you have one and only one thing connected.

Ok, you seem to be confused on how your connection strength is truly rated.


Your connection is rated by Megabits (Mb - correction from my previous post), NOT MegaBytes (MB). Capitalization makes a world of difference. And no, I did have a 50Mbps connection with my a/b/g connection back in the day (cap back then was 54Mbps).

Anyway, you must have been talking download / upload speed then. In which case, your still doing it wrong, and besides N isn't the best anymore, unfortunately.

Honestly tho I think it comes down to whatever you are using to receive the signal rather than transmitting if your only getting a 2Mbps connection rate.

From Craigslist. Only really wanted the Rock Band guitar, but the guy didn't want to split it up. For $15, I think it was a decent deal, and brings me one step closer to moving all my rock band stuff from wii to 360;)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Why so much Ethernet? Buy a repeater, place it near the last known good spot of the wifi signal, and it will increase the range by half in that direction.

Ethernet is so stone age, haha.


We find wired to be more reliable than wireless, especially since she streams a lot of tv shows.

Nice pick up. I love the strum on the Xplorer I do way better on songs with that but the buttons on the strat are way better haha.


Since you guys are arguing about wireless and stuff.

Which kind of wireless router would you recommend?
I'm looking for a new once since my current one which is a like a $30 Belkin router doesn't even connect to my phone unless I'm in the same room. My house isn't even big either.

My newest D-link had good ratings on Cnet, but I sort of hate it as it randomly decides that it won't go to certain, obscure sites like Yahoo mail, and some place called google ???

Not often, but once a month or so I have to restart it so I can back to those really niche sites that are really of no importance.

15 bucks. Having fun pulling giant shards of glass out of small children :P

Inserting the glass is the truly fun part!


Dude, my brain is pudding. Had a baby yesterday. The past 6 days has been a blur. My bad.

I've been there; it happens. But don't worry, it only lasts for the rest of your life. My son is almost 3 now and I can feel myself getting dumber by the week. Congrats, by the way!


Got the urge to pick up some PS1 games and Xbox 1 stuff and it all went horribly wrong (read: right.) I haven't been a proper "collector" in about 7 years b/c of school, but now i'm bored.

Have you played Gekido? If so, is there a level with waves or rising water levels or some such? For years, I've been trying to remember a fighting game that came out for either N64 or PS1. The only thing I can remember about it is that the commercial or preview I saw showed a small group of characters fighting each other while trying to escape a flood or tidal wave. I wanted it so bad back then, but I can't remember what the hell it was. I do remember it having a one-word Japanese title like Gekido, though.

For a few years now, I've been using a $40 Belkin router and I have no complaints. I can connect to it from anywhere on our property...down the street as well. Sounds like you should've spent 10 more dollars!

I bet it does!

Thanks man! We're really looking forward to bringing the little booger home :)

I imagine that by 3 that he'll be smarter than me and putting me in my place. I'll probably need to be put into a retirement home by 40 :P

I use an Netgear N600, and it works pretty well. Also has support for 5.6Ghz mode, and only cost about $70 or so a couple years ago (so should be cheaper now).

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

i only played one level last night (it actually seems like a decent brawler.) but a quick google search says there is a flood stage in the game.

Built my house a few years ago and wired it with ethernet.

Its faster (dont care what you say about wireless, its not as consistent fast as Gigabit), more secure, and not everything comes with wifi (such as bluray players).

Also all of this speed talk is nonsense anwyays, even g wifi is fast enough to stream HD video, the only time gigabit or really fast wifi even matter is when you are transferring large files over a network, and how often does one do that?

Fuck Ubisoft

I'm not trying to judge, but if I was a girl walking into your place, and saw that...might be just a tad weird.


But hey, I guess some people dig that kind of thing;)

Yea, it would be weird if you were a girl. And walked into my place. I'd probably call the cops.

Nice, Kuroneko is cool!
I have a ton of figures (for her I think I have the kotobukiy one, maybe others, and the figma/nendoroid), but generally avoid the swimsuits ones. Just think they are cuter with clothes.

A couple things I picked up lately....

Posted Image

Best pick up so far were the 2 Game cases... I was at Savers and was super surprised to see them both were brand new no problems not even ever opened. $1.99 each :) Although I wish I could get more of the disc holders to put it, Ive been searching for a case like this to hold the book manual and disc.
