    i was looking at this site for new things to read when i see ranks.

    i see that there are 24334 network newbies
    i see that there are 205 connected clients
    i see that there are 16 reformed routers
    i see that there are 6 serious servers
    ans i see that there are 3 yes 3 networkin nuts
    but noone is addicted? i believe that i have seen a few addicts in my days why are they not included?


    or are we just too ashamed of them to include them in the count?

    updated (still no addicts) come on jag more coffe

    Guyfromhe Network Guru Member

    im supprised there aren't more reformed routers :p
     
  3. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    yeah reformed routers are cool i wish i was one.
     
  4. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    ok..... :?

    anyway i think the admins changed the ranks around i liked it the other way around.

    I'm still stuck on the 3 networkin nuts. jagboy if you see this, repeat after me "I must sleep, I must sleep, I must sleep". (kidding). I agree with t4thfavor, we need to show addicted. That way we can form some sort of online intervention. :)
     
  6. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    never! :D

    i live on this site. and dd-wrt to check for new firmware releases.

    jdepew Administrator Staff Member Member

    We're happy to have people addicted!!!!

    I don't remember what we have the user rankings set at right now, but we may look into expanding them at some point.

    If you have suggestions for level names, by all means, lets hear them!

    And keep on posting, our users are the best source of information and help for others!

    wow, that was a lot of exclamation points.
     
  8. jdepew

    jdepew Administrator Staff Member Member

    Oh, and if you guys are so addicted - help us out with our Vonage review - give us a call ;-) See the front page news item if you have no idea what I'm blathering on about.
     
  9. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    im gettin a new cell tomorrow ill make the call, what do you want to know?
    im pretty addicted....

    i think that at 500 posts you should get to pick your own name/rank

    mine will be lvl 250 loser ....

    just kidding but its a start.

    also i think 500 posts for addicted is a little to many.
    it should be a title like needs sleep or something like that or maybe needs a woman...

    just a few suggestions..
    the number is in the us correct?

    come on jag more posts than the site admin???

    sleep for god's sake
     
  10. jdepew

    jdepew Administrator Staff Member Member

    See you gotta realize, that this admin doesn't post the forum as much as jagboy, because not only is he running the rest of the site, posting news, writing reviews, and having a life - he's also a med student - I've got a few things on my plate :-D

    But, yes, the number is US - good ole Virginia.
     
  11. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    oh i know all that ive read.....

    med students are so cool.....


    i had to talk to a former med student today... mad case of poison ivy.. but a few doses of methylprednisone and some acetonide cream and im here with ya all postin away into the night......

    i prefer Michigan, but Virginia is good too..

    im going to start a new topic now on a friggin huge wireless link im cooking up..... talk to you tomorrow(answering machine?)
     
  12. jdepew

    jdepew Administrator Staff Member Member

    You've got a good chance of getting me in later afternoon to early evening, otherwise its probably gonna be voicemail. Good luck with that poison ivy - I've luckily never gotten it. *knocks on wood*

    Oh, and I don't know why people think med students are cool, we're just type A, retentive, OCD geeks ;-) And no need to get excited ladies, we're not doctors yet and we're still very poor - hence why I have to beg for PayPal donations to pay for hosting!
     
  13. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    there are no women reading this .....


    i just had a good idea. i would like for a quick reply button to be added to the site as in www.dota-allstars.com/forums so that when i go to reply i dont have to get a cup of coffe and go to the john before it loads up(crappy dialup)


    just a suggestion.

    also i fully plan to donate at least something for your cause. but i am not allowed to use "our" money as of yet. i guess i have to earn it first:)
     
  14. Guyfromhe

    Guyfromhe Network Guru Member

    hah 101th post i'm a Serious Server now :p
     
  15. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    ok now there is one more serious server in the world.

    finally got my phone i need to make a call...
     
  16. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    it is amazing how much went on, in the 2 days i have been way.
    not to sound like a geek but i always have one browser open to linksysinfo i just have a problem finding it in the other 22 windows i have open. the life of a 15 year old is not a interesting one. :monkey:

    it would be cool if we got i pic ur own names or ranks.

    ny rocks go yanks!!!!!!

    oh, how true this is
     
  17. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    you sound like my brother except he always has a browser window open to some dbz site, at least your doing something sort of productive.


    keep it up and someday you could have a pretty good job waiting for you.

    im sure ny rocks so why arent you out enjoying it. visit michigan for like a week and you would pull your eyes out you'd be so bored.
    there isnt a mall within 50 miles of my house in almost any direction
     
  18. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    i am sure michignan rocks so does Virgina but i live near the big apple and it is pretty fun ger too...

    i will be amazed if i dont get arrested first by breaking in to the school wifi and getting in to the linux servers. but i u know how schools are they keep their servers holding the grades of students under some heavy heavy heavy protection. :hiding: :firing:
     
  19. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    you all should call jim at the number posted on the home page and introduce your addicted selves. so that he can "test" his VOIP setup...


    its long distance but thats why you have to use a cell phone.
     
  20. Guyfromhe

    Guyfromhe Network Guru Member

    i've got vonage so it's free for me :p
     
  21. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    also i am cursed with the lack of broadband so i can not get vonage..... i have to legally "pirate" the broadband from my neighbor (not implemented)

    i found the quality to be as good (possibly better) than my cell.

    so it must be sweet
     
  22. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    legally? it is like borrowing a cup of access
     
  23. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    ok i need to kill the creator of netgear wgr614 for making the worst ap in the world..... my brother in law has one and after updating the firmware i have been dumped now about 16 times in 15 minutes.....

    is that what they call stable firmware...
    god i miss my wrt
     
  24. Disman_ca

    Disman_ca Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    I called twice got voicemail though as expected. But I neither confirm nor deny that I am a computer geek, I just choose not to comment. My wife says I am additcted though, obviously not as much as the 3 "nuts". The way I see it, reading exploring and learning more is more enjoyable then watching the boob tub.
     
  25. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    no more disconnnects. im going to have to get more motivated

    update on the poison ive situation: after many doses of anabolics i am able to pwn the ivy that has gotten all up in my grill.
    its not GG yet but soon i will have a MMMmmmonster kill.


    i couldnt resist doing that
     
  26. Guyfromhe

    Guyfromhe Network Guru Member

    I called and left a voicemail, I hope you don't post clips of the voicemail messages you get -.-
    anyhoo i'm liking my vonage service seems to work good for me, love all the free stuff you get, just wish they hadn't locked down my pap2 looks like it could be fun to play with...
     
  27. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    i am holding off on the voip because of the lawsuits in the news about people that tried to call 911 and could not get thourgh. but they forgot to turn on the 911 feature. and plus i had the smae home phone number for about the last 14-16 years why change it now.
     
  28. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    cant you have your number transferred like a cell phone?
    i had verizon steal my old nextel number, they love doing it.
    its like a war
     
  29. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    on the top 10 page add a top ten most addicted... that would be funny

    and actually make it the top ten not the top 5...

    i want my name on something here...

    i try very hard to become addicted to LI.org im not quite there but im workin on it one useful post at a time.
    -c
     
  30. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    i thought i posted this but i dont see it so sry if it double posted

    i want the top 10 to be top 10 not top 5 so i can have my name on the page somewhere

    i want to be addicted to LI.org so im working my way there one post at a time.

    maybe like a top poster section per day and all time (excluding admins, etc).
     
  31. Guyfromhe

    Guyfromhe Network Guru Member

    vonage makes a big stink about 911 when you sign up... they didn't even offer it here till a day ago (and i've already signed up for it) plus I have a landline next to my vonage phone just incase ;)
     
  32. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    well it is not abou the number of posts what matters is the number of people that you can help :wink:
     
  33. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    i totally agree with ya there but the more people i "help" the more people seem to need help, maybe its me...


    thats why i use the open forum to talk about things like this.

    this is a great and powerful comminity made possible by someone doing this as a "hobby". As a whole i think we as a community have helped thousands of people to achieve their goals(networking).
    and i have been helped many times also.

    but i would really like to be addicted....

    my quest is to help people untill i become addicted. im OMW don't you think?
     
  34. Disman_ca

    Disman_ca Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Thats the reason I am here and as active in the forum as possible. Its amazing.

    Well I think you are addicted already, welcome to the club. We'll catch up to jagboy eventually your at least beating me in posts.
     
  35. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    im only beating you by a few and i have been on since feb 05
    and we will never catch jag he is a sleepless god...

    j/k on the god thing
     
  36. jagboy

    jagboy Network Guru Member

    this is what happened 2 me

    :D i use this site in my spare time.
     
  37. jdepew

    jdepew Administrator Staff Member Member

    Spare time, jag? What does your real time consist of then ;-)

    Thanks everyone for calling - I've gotten to speak with a few of you, and the others, I promise I'll get to the voicemails tomorrow or this weekend. I had a clinical skills exam today, so this week has been about preparing for that.

    And no, I won't post the voicemails online.

    Re the 911 feature: I agree that it should be enabled by default.

    PAP2, which is one of the pieces I am testing, is locked down as soon as its activated. Mine were preactivated so I couldn't even get a look at it, and for that same reason the Samurize plugin for its identical twin, the Sipura, won't work.

    I have found a *tiny* picture of the software page - http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules/Content/Vonage/PAP2/pap2_sw.png

    jdepew Administrator Staff Member Member

    Oh, hey if you guys are really addicted - follow the link in my sig, and help me get a mac mini - then I can make sure the site looks right in Safari - we've had a bunch of problems with Mac visitors in the past. mmmm Tiger....
     
  39. jdepew

    jdepew Administrator Staff Member Member

    Okay, now I'm the post junky - got an idea - show off your network setup!

    I always love the threads in DSLreports and [H]ardForums where users post pics/diagrams of their network setups....

    How about one of you intrepid souls start a new thread and post some details of the network you're so obsessed over :-D
     
  40. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    fine i guess it will have to be me......

    its actually quite pathetic

    look for it to be called Obsessive compulsive disorder...



    look at me
    im on the top ten posters. i must be good.
     
  41. Disman_ca

    Disman_ca Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    I've wanted to diagram and document my setup for a while. Anyone know where people are getting the fancy images to represent the different devices. I have MS Visio 2002 but it doesn't have the nicer stencils like just basic netowork devices from Cisco, Baynetworks and such.
     
  42. t4thfavor

    t4thfavor Network Guru Member

    there are like 8 trillion free progs that will allow you to draw out your network. and save it to a jpeg. visio will do it and there are a few others.


    search for network diagram software on google im sure you will get hits.

  60. Guyfromhe

    Guyfromhe Network Guru Member

    you can reset the PAP2 back to a state where you can get into the basic web settings, however vonage has locked down the admin section in the firmware (you can access the user config area in the web interface if you reset (with the code which i can get when I get home) and then login you can see that screen and a couple others and thats avail till you connect it to the net and let it download the vonage config file).

    so my whole network is down. woo is my partents going to kill me and the other 5 people that need internetin my house. and now there is only one copuiter in the whole house that has internet. and that is why i did not hit 100 posts yet or pass TOXIC
