@Pacerier, I should have said "ethernet patch cable"; CAT-5 is a common type.

comment pdf and djvu: Raster or vector graphic image
Sorry, not familiar with djvu, but from the wikipedia page, it sounds like a pdf alternative, so the same vector-style scaling should apply.

comment How can I keep the same IP address for one machine in my network?
@mcgrailm, BTW, the "MAC" Wil and I refer to is the Media Access Control address identifier for your network card(s), not your Macintosh.

@mcgrailm, your stock firmware doesn't support static leases, AFAIK. It can, however, be flashed with a custom firmware like DD-WRT which does have this feature.

comment How can I keep the same IP address for one machine in my network?
@mcgrailm, No, you reserve two static IP's for your 2 computers and the router will always give them those 2 IP's. Everything else that connects will behave normally and receive a dynamic IP. Not every Linksys router supports this; what is your model#? Also, the static assignment is actually per MAC address, not computer. So if you assign your wired NIC MAC to an IP, you'll have to create a separate entry for you wireless NIC MAC.
