    I had a home telephone problem so Comcast just replaced my cable modem with an RCA Modem. Until now, Internet from Comcast worked WONDERFULLY - not a single issue in years of service. I had a motorola modem until the replacement. As soon as they installed the new RCA modem - two things started happening. First, my Apple Airport Extreme router occasionally reports that there is no connection and then auto-reconnects after about a minute. Second, and most annoying, DNS look ups take 7-10 seconds each time I try to connect to websites. Both problems are driving me nuts and comcast tech support is incapable of troubleshooting because they can see the modem each time I call to complain. Then they go down the path of "well, we don't support routers" and I just want to scream. :-) Could there be a documented problem between an Airport Extreme and the new RCA modem? Maybe some setting somewhere that I can change that would make the two work better together? Or is this simply an RCA modem issue and I should press for another replacement? Or any other thoughts?

When I move cable back to my regular 19" LCD, it works fine.

  • Should I change rear suspension bushing?

    I have been told for some time that my rear "bushings" are bad on my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder LE. Since the cost is high ($900) I have avoided it. Am I doing damage by not replacing them? How can I minimize this cost?

  • What is involved with replacing front shocks on a Nissan Pathfinder LE 2000?

    I've never tried replacing something like a shock before, is this something that is extremely involved? Can it be done at home in the garage?

The semaphore timeout period has expired. No matter what I do, I can't get it to properly obtain an IP address.

Can plug other machines into connection and work fine. Only this laptop not working. Same laptop does work on friends internet connection. Help please. Thanks!

    Sorry, new to MAC and I had a problem with Yahoo! Messenger that someone answered nicely. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do what they told me. I asked how to fix a scroll problem in Yahoo! Messenger and got this response: ------- edit /Applications/ Yahoo! Messenger.app/ Contents/ Resources/ Default.ymStyle/ main.js (line 417) body.scrollTop = body.scrollHeight - document.clientHeight; to body.scrollTop = body.scrollHeight; ------- Sounds like the Windows equivalent of REGEDIT and it looks like I have to edit a line in the .app file but I don't know how to actually do the editing in my new MAC world. Can someone help? Maybe explain a little about what it is that I'm actually doing? Thanks!
