Another update: I finally
had time to hook up the Asus RT-N12 wireless router (I’d purchased it I think in November or December of 2013)
to the AT&T supplied “Uverse” (182KB/second download speed maximum
) modem, and now the “disappearing network connection” gremlin seems to have gone away. Nothing I can do about the 182KB/second speeds, seems I am too far from the central office, and there isn’t any fibre in the new neighbourhood. No biggee, not like I’m streamin’ porn 24x7 or anything like that, and they’re only charging me $24.95/month for the first year. Hopefully they will have faster speeds available sometime soon though, otherwise I may have to go to the dark side *cough*Comcrap*cough*.
Meanwhile, seems as though I have a Tomato’d Linksys WRT54GL wireless router for sale. Anyone interested in it? Works great.
