whoooosh! that went over my head. have no idea what all that means other than something affecting my connection. Since my problem is fixed I am happy. My cable modem is a motorola surf something-or-other and it's been most reliable these past 7-or-so years. I've even downloaded well-seeded +4Gb torrents in a matter of a few hours so I'm not complaining. All I really do on this pc is watch a little tv, leech/seed torrents, play & burn cd and dvd, web-surf & email, visit a few forums and photoshop, word, excel. Maybe some autocad when I'm really bored. Never had to do a restore or sytem re-install, never had a virus. This old war-horse will have to die before I move on. Like the saying goes "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
