Oh the fun of troubleshooting

I have had endless headaches of the error message on my Netgear router- WAN address rejected, incorrect security. I would then have intermittent internet connectivity. It has never happened on my Droid, but happened on my XP and vista machines. I finally got the sense to get the security types to match, and so far so good. I hope Netgear releases a firmware version to fix this issue.

These are the logs

I love the Motorola Droid smartphone, but these are much cooler!

Mobile Broadband vs Cable Internet

I am trying the Mobile Broadband Connect (tethering) feature on Verizon Wireless for one month during a trial promotion. It is nice while you are on the go, I guess it gives ISDN/slower DSL speeds. It is great for a secondary internet connection when you are traveling or visiting clients.

Here is the speed on Mobile Broadband

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is the speed on cable:
