We've had Brighthouse's ( Time Warner ) "Lightning" 90 MBS cable modem for some time, I've got it paired with a 300 MBS N Wireless Netgear router, but now that we are getting ready to move I'd like to replace the router with a more current AC Wireless unit.
Received 4/3 and 4/10 updates late 4/14 (still working through the 29 episodes). The 4/17 update (13 episodes) is still MIA!
Note: the 4/3 update episodes not showing up on TWC's VOD web page (www.twcondemand.com) were listed somewhere (the customer service rep did a title search for one of the 4/10 episodes on 4/11 and the missing 4/3 episode was also listed as being available - as a movie and not part of TAN programming, but it WAS listed). Since neither I nor the customer service rep could find the 4/3 episode under any VOD movie menu, he added the 4/3 VOD episodes that were MIA as well as the one that was listed and MIA). Read More...
[quote="Lumis" post=166392]I swear the movies that Syfy has been coming out with the last couple of years are just something else! One title that I saw just the other day was Jersey Shore Shark Attack. I literally facepalmed myself right then and there after reading it. Next up after that was called Big Ass Spider!. I bet you will never guess what that one was about.
Verizon tells me that if I want to upgrade from my Fast Ethernet and Wireless G router that I will have to pay them a hefty fee. After all this time with them I'd say that they owe me a modern router but it turns out that even if I do pay their fee that I'll still be stuck with a behind-the-times router as their "top end" router is Gigabit Ethernet with 300 Mbit Wifi N.
We already have 450 Mbit N routers, 1000 Mbit+ AC routers and 10,000 Mbit AC routers are on the horizon. Ain't no way I can justify paying for 300 in such a time and the nature of FiOS makes it seem as though, no matter what I do, the root of my network will always be their router.
However, Verizon says that if I want to get up to even 100 Mbit speed (I'm at ~40 now) that I'd have to pay their router fee as, even though my router has 100 Mbit ethernet, my router "can't handle it". Read More...
