WRTP54G - good for VoIP only

So, solution was to put back venerable WRT-54G into service, connect WRTP-54G as one of the ports, redirect some ports and life is back to normal.
Next step - get Linksys PAP2 off Ebay cheaply to try.

More on WRTP54G , Emule, and dropping connection

Problem seems to be that Emule causes phreaking box to die.
This is syslog: kernel: ip_conntrack: table full, dropping packet
Now what ?
Stop Emule ? Add good wired router in front of WRTP54 and use it for VoIP only ?
Fix WRTP54G ?

WRTP54G is piece of crap in IP side

WRTP54G needs to be rebooted (powered off-on) after a few hours.
What a piece of crap.
Voice works well, anyway, so solution will place this POS behind real thing - WRT54G and disable wireless and routing.

Centos USB drive not working at USB 2.0

For odd some reason (used to work) phreaking stick is not recognized if I plug it in USB-2 port. Works ok in USB-1 ports.
Very annoying.

Best free e-mail service for low spam level is HOTMAIL !!!

I have Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail accounts - and so far Hotmail has the least amount of spam.
It is easy to explain - Microsoft sells real products and doesn't need to rely on spam for extra revenue.
Yahoo and Google are advertising-based so they promote spam heavily - stupid advertises paying them in the hope that somebody will see that message (but both Yahoo and Google honestly put it into spam folder)

Google spam now called "networking attempt"

Received this from Stephanie Buran, Technical Recruiter at Google:
