Weekend

This saturday, I went to visit my parents. A few weeks back, I installed a Linksys WAG54G to go with their ADSL subscription. However, it seems the wireless link is far from stable, so that merited some further investigation. My father gave me lots of confused error reports, so that I didn't know what was the exact problem.
I flashed the most recent firmware into the device, and it all seemed to work correctly -- and then it all went to hell in a handbasket. The wireless link was dropped, just like that. When we'd connect the PC to the router via an UTP cable, we got a consistently good link with the internet, so it seems the router drops the wireless link from time to time. It may take 5 minutes, it may take 30 minutes, but it'll be dropped. Of course, that's not what we buy a wireless router for! It seems more people are having troubles with it... I've contacted Linksys support, we'll see what they can come up with.
So far, I'm not a happy camper about this.

Sunday, klik's father celebrated his birthday. It was fun, as usual, apart from some family drama that was constantly present in the background...
