I'm stationed in Korea. They have internet here. The Koreans will come into your barracks room and just hook up their crappy DACOM modem and hook you up and you're online. He just checks to make sure the connection is established and then leaves. I've been having issues---and frankly, for $41 a month, I feel I'm being raped because it is 'CABLE' service at slower than 'DSL' speed. A) If I buy a Linksys cable modem, will it work and B) Will the speed increase if it does? My internet has been sputtering lately, and if you think you have any better ideas, please let me know, i'm at a loss--it keeps getting stuck on the 'looking up...' address message and then times out, then if I click refresh the page loads fine. I am also getting stuck when I play my online games. About every 10 minutes, like clock-work, the game freezes and I have to disconnect, wait for it to time out, and then reconnect. It is very annoying.
Any ideas? I've been so frustrated. Thanks guys
