Aw Yes. The TCP/IP over carrier pigeons. A classic. :-)

I can't wait for "pigeon neutrality" to come to the forefront.

IG, I pay 29.99/mo for 3.0.  Can't imagine it would be more than that....

IG, I think it's $19.99 after the one year is up. But don't quote me on that.

I've got a wiring question for the DSL-heads.

Heather and I recently switched over to DSL and DirecTV. We also recently re-arranged our living room, including the location of our home theater system.

The folks at DirecTV said that isn't necessary to connect a phone line to our satellite receiver, they did say it would make purchasing PPV movies more convenient. Right now, I've got the receiver jerry-rigged to a wall-mounted phone jack a few feet away, but I'd really like to get a phone jack installed right behind the home theater so I don't have a glaringly obvious phone cord dangling loose for the baby and the cat to grab at.

I know that I have to use the phone filter when connecting a regular POTS device, but my question has to do with the way the phone line should get run to the new jack. There's a line running through the crawlspace right underneath where the jack would go. Can I just tap off the existing line, essentially making a T-connection, and just run a shunt up into the wall? Or should I cut the line, splice extensions up to the wall jack, and tap it right at the jack?

The wall-plate I'm using is one of those modular types with the square holes and the snap-in connector modules. The connector for the phone line is an RJ25 connector with a mini-punch block on the back.

Will I be degrading my DSL signal if I try the above methods? Or should I just bite the bullet and run a whole new line from the demarc?

In general, the less cruft you have on your wiring plant, the better your DSL signal will be. The best practice is to split the line at the demarc, and then send one unfiltered tap to your modem, and one filtered tap to your home's wiring plant.

However, if you're using filters on all of your jacks, now, then you'll need one on the jack that you put in for the DirecTV box.

OK, so since activating this stupid Verizon DSL this afternoon, for which I had to boot up Vista in VMware and run their utterly stupid "activation software" to set up the account, when they could have easily done the activation directly from a Web page... anyway.

It's been up and down all evening. I've now had seven interruptions of service, one lasting as long as 20 minutes, and 8 unique IP addresses. In one day.

To make matters worse, by the time I manage to find the phone number to call up Verizon and bitch at them for their crappy service, the DSL mysteriously comes back.

This had better be just because of the hurricane, or I'm going to get REALLY pissed.

Wow, Verizon on Vista.  Good freaken luck.  You need to get through the birthing pains with Verizon.  It always takes forever in the begging.  When I first got in on Win98 it was a total complete bitch.  Then setting it up on win 2000 made me call 1800 567 6789 like 20 times in one night, they made me reinstall the program like 20 time.  Then When I got Windows XP I nearly threw my computer out the freaken window.  I never quite did get E-mail to work.

 

But cable vision is so much better........NOT.

 

This re-dirrect bullshit is really pissing me off to no end.  Damn it.  This sucks shit!!!!!

I tested going to uncensored through searching for it, and clicking on the link and I kept getting sent to FAVORITES.COM and then a sex site.  Then somewhere else.  I'm going to kill someone soon if I can search anymore.  I loved looking up things on the web.  That's half the reason I needed to get back on.  research and shit.  Now that's taken away from me.

And I'm paying for it.  FUCK FUCK FUCK SHIT SHIT SHIT FUCK FUCK FUCK

Vista? Oh, I removed it and shut that down. VMware is kind of a resource hog, you know. I wouldn't have bothered with it at all, except they WON'T LET YOU FUCKING ACTIVATE THROUGH THEIR WEB SITE USING LINUX. It has to be Internet Exploiter or nothing.

I think I'm going to tell them where to stuff their shitty service.

hahaha, qwest had this great "Install this software and we'll configure your
router automatically" CD. Unfortunately they don't give you the PPPoA login/
pass on the setup page anymore, just some "Instant Connect Code".

Called 'em, bitched, got my PPPoA login/pass and been happy since.

OK, I absolutely cannot stand having a new IP address every two hours. It's impossible to get any work done this way!

ipv6 tunneling?

I don't think IE on Linux runs ActiveX controls, which is what Verizon did.

To make matters worse, they also made a Firefox extension which -- get this -- installs the same ActiveX control and starts up IE.

I hate Verizon.

And yes, I think I'm going to wind up creating some sort of tunneling.

I activated Verizon DSL using Linux a year or two ago, using their web site from another computer with Internet access. It didn't have to be done through the subscriber line itself, at least not then ... all I needed was the account holder name and telephone number. Maybe they changed it.
