    Chuck,

    Are we talking apples and oranges here? How are you using a range extender to give WiFi capability to say a 3COM 3C503b?

    Quick questions to those who use a WiFi bridge (such as a TP-LINK WR700N) to convert a wired connection to a wireless one: Are you using or do you need to use TWO IP addresses for the setup?

    I am not saying crappy/buggy SW is a new phenomenon. However, it used to be that buying a game on a console at least meant some level of QA and replayability.

    Sorry but I am not following. Are you planning on using the modern machine just as a HDD/Network tunnel for the vintage machine?

    A more interesting idea, IMHO, would be to have a modern...

    It is ridiculous but I am told that the new kids on the block (Millenials and Gen Z) prefer it that way. That is, they don't want to bother with boxes, shelf space, and...
