    why are you using a wrt54g, isn't that only 100Mbps?

    I'm hard wired, the router is for the laptop upstairs only. The water bottle is my piggy bank for spare change.

    A butcher block desk is my dream desk, getting tired of the ikea particle board trash. Looks great!

    The laptop is upstairs at my house is very rarely used so no need to spend the $$$ on a better wireless router. My pc is hard wired.

    it's probably a router/modem combo with the the wrt54g being used as a wireless bridge or he lives in an area with shit internet and the 100mbps doesn't matter.. not everyone has access to and/or cares about having 100mbit+ internet.


    nice setup OP'er i definitely need to quit being lazy and pull all my movie posters out of the boxes they're in from when i moved 2 years ago, lol.
