What speed do you require? Belkin AP's seem to perform quite well, and they make a number of models that don't have a router and a switch bolted to them.

I have a D-Link 802.11n. It was only 30 or 40 bucks. Not sure about its access-point-only mode; haven't tried that. But there's no reason not to get at least a two-antenna, single-band 802.11n; the range benefits of using the latest protocol are real, and the technology is inexpensive.

I didn't realize n was the standard nowadays. I'm so out of it.
A friend of mine was debating between g and n and he'd never heard of b.

It just makes sense to be on the latest protocol. 802.11n works fine and makes more efficient use of valuable RF spectrum.

But I am willing to bet my laptop won't be able to connect.  It's an older model.  Are the newer protocols backwards compatible?

I just set up a very cheap draft N D Link and it had access point only mode. Works great. Very fast. Sometimes what you're looking for is also called bridge mode.

Yes, you can mix and match (unless you have an access point which is configured for "greenfield mode"). It works the other way, too: I'm typing this message on a laptop with 802.11g wireless, and my access point is 802.11b.

Weird....   We had a power outage the other day and now my fios router keeps Apipa'ing itself.  Yet, I can still pick up my wireless (not bandited) signal - just not the hardwired connection.  Bizarre....

I was just given a Fluke 620 LAN cable meter and a bunch of otehr networking goodies.

Fluke kicks ass. My multimeter is a Fluke 8060A.. the classic. It is over 20 years old and I have many times tossed it around and whatnot but it is still working just great.

Yeah, they've always made great stuff.

I hate verizon.
Now it seems they throttle my smtp connections.
but its possible (even though I'm doing smtp auth so they know who I am) I can only send 5 or so emails before they start blocking.
so I'm thinking this might be because I don't appear to be coming from one of their ips.
I'm a little hazy on this whole route thing.
What kind of route do I set up to make all connections going to outgoing.verizon.net go through one interface versus another?

Are you sending mail from a Verizon email address, or are you using one of your own domains? And are you making outbound connections from your Verizon IP address, or from the IP address of your "virtual public network" tunnel?

As far as routes are concerned, you can't configure a route to a hostname; you have to configure a route to an IP address or subnet.

I'm sending mail from one of my own domains (but they don't seem to care, they're sending it, but they send 10 then won't answer me anymore for 15 minutes)
And it's coming from the vpn which is why I'm thinking maybe they're throttling since it's not coming from one of their ip's, but now I'm starting to think that they just probably throttle anyway.
Yeah, I knew you can only route address, but I'm tired and wasn't thinking straight.
I think I have to come up with a slower way of sending mail.

Well then ... don't use Verizon's mail servers. Install Postfix on your machine and configure it so that all outbound mail egresses from your static IP address instead of through Verizon.

ahhh... I didn't do that because all th eIP's I ever use are in 'customer use banks' or whatever they're called so everybody knows to block them.
I dood it!

That's true ... Verizon registers all of its subscriber IP addresses in various DUL's (an increasingly inappropriate name, of course). Your virtual static IP is not; in fact, it's a completely clean address (please keep it that way).

The only problem you may run into is that the reverse DNS doesn't map to anything. Some mail servers check to make sure that the forward and reverse DNS agree with each other. This is of course easily remedied as soon as you decide what name you want to assign.

This is kind of curious.

Hurricane Electric has a little counter gizmo that show the predicted number of days before the exhaustion of the IPv4 address space.

Since I've been watching it (a few months now) ... it's actually going *up*.

(I'd like to deploy IPv6. So far I just haven't been able to get it.)

Maybe, and of course nobody wants to say this, ipv6 is a solution without a problem to solve.
