So a few weeks ago I finally got sick of putting up with my roommate's crappy D-Link router. Its wireless wouldn't work with Macs so I had to wire my Airport Express into it and the D-Link would crash 4+ times a day and I'd have to go and reset it. So I went on eBay and bought an Airport Extreme base station (802.11g) for $75 shipped. My roommates seemed surprised that I would 'spend so much' on a router. But in 10 minutes I had the thing working, and it's been going strong ever since. I've been using Azureus for BitTorrent, and it has always given me errors saying that its firewalled, and NAT problems, blah, blah, blah. It still sorta worked, though my torrents always ran abysmally slow even in healthy swarms and would often bottom out for hours. I read the wiki and now after assigning a static IP to my laptop, and port forwarding in the base station, I get happy green lights in Azureus and excellent performance. It's so wonderful to be in charge of the network, and to be able to fiddle around without having to give a roommate a crash course in computer networks. Anyone else got stories about dealing with roommates and shared internet connections?
