ok, question, is there a site on the internet that will list all the broadband internet providers in a city? i live in las vegas, and it seems that broadband is only offered by Sprint DSL, or Cox Cable internet ... but i just found Keyon , which is a wireless broadband internet ISP, and only $25/mo ... only to find it not available where i live (*******s) ... so i was wondering what else is out here in vegas ... tried searching to no avail ..... is there any page that will have a list for a city or whatever ?

cuz being i dialup SUCKS

i used to have cable internet..and was good for awhile, then alot of woes

it was installed on a home network. Cable modem plugged into the 3Com wireless router (NAT enabled). it would be hardwired into the main computer, and the others were on via wireless NIC.

then one day, it just stops working. nothing works, no internet on any computer. i call Cox, and they say nothing is wrong. i plug the cable modem directly to the computer, and it works. it just doesnt work when connected to the router. Cox just says something must be wrong with the router. i think thats a bunch of bull, as i get a new router, same model, and it still doesnt work.

have any ideas what might be causing this?

grr, any help would be appreciated, for either of the above matters

Did you change anything, like add a firewall in the mix? Is it one machine that will not connect or all the machines in your home network? I assume you have tried unplugging both the router and the modem for about a minute?

If it works without the router, is there a chance the routers are both bad?. Any chance the settings in either your router or computer are changed somehow? Just some random thoughts.
