Waiting for My (Cable) Man

Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL RouterThis coming Friday, my excruciating exile from the land of home connectivity is scheduled to end when Time Warner Cable finally installs my cable modem. Knowing that broadband installations are fraught with mishaps and aborted attempts, I’m keeping my fingers crossed and my expectations low. All the same, I ordered myself a Linksys BEFSR41 4-Port Etherfast Cable/DSL router a few days ago, and if everything goes well, I should have a nifty little home network by the weekend.
