    WAN Backup Plan?

    We have a couple hotspots right now but this isn't the most ideal backup I would think. I am looking for a backup to Comcast if that service drops out. This is for a small business of about 30 computers or so total, spread over 11,000 square feet. This would be 4-5 hotspots deployed near the...

    BF3 - freezes

    Putting 2GB of data on hundreds of usb thumb drives
