This may seem like a very bizzarre question but. My macbook and 2wire router/modem hate each other. I get constant timeouts! But I found a workaround (cred: apple.com boards) if I open up terminal ping my router ip 192.186.x.x and it just constantly pings I DO NOT disconnect. I put it under test left; my macbook on for a week straight no problemo! Thus coming to my request. I hate having a terminal window open seeing nothing but Code: 64 bytes from 192.168.x.x: icmp_seq=1346 ttl=255 time=1.335 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.x.x: icmp_seq=1347 ttl=255 time=2.090 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.x.x: icmp_seq=1348 ttl=255 time=1.375 ms Its fugly. I was hoping someone has heard of a menubar app I can run that just does it in the background? TBH I have very LIMITED programming knowledge so I am not sure where to go here but something like this vimeo but when I click on it, opens up a terminal page of the pinging in action? Where do I from here? Thanks! Taz.
