I don't understand why DHCP worked with a busted driver, though?

comment Windows [not firewall] ignores incoming packets
Step 1: update everything windows update. watch it fail to update any drivers. (wifi driver didn't have an update.) Step 2: check lenovo's site for an update. find no drivers for atheros cards on t61's. Step 3: check atheros's site for an update. be unable to figure out which atheros the t61 has. Step 4: google for any t61 atheros driver. install from softopedia. cry tears of joy.

comment Are computers with more RAM potentially faster if not all memory is usually in use?
Extra RAM won't make CPU-bound computations faster, but faster RAM can, so be sure to buy the fastest RAM your CPU/motherboard support. Note that there is clock speed as well as latency to consider.

@Keavon, all of it. The OS should automatically discard cache entries as necessary.
