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.
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?
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....
whew. thats sort of a score, like everything with fluke printed on it.
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?
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.
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!
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.
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.
