I really don't know if it's my router-I have a direct connection-(dhcp) with the modem mentioned earlier. I don't know what upnp is or DMZ (I'm a newbie) I know earlier in slackware 12.2 it worked for a while and ran at 40kbs, i am in Ubuntu 8.10 now and I don't run any firewall-never have-even when I had XP I didn't have either a firewall or antivirus.
I am now reading the link posted earlier here-it's making sense and I did not know the steps outlined about I have to begin the seeding process for the iso.
I'm trying gang and I appreciate all your help.
I am already pissed off today because for the last 3 days Sears Automotive has had my mother's car-all they had to do was install 4 new struts, 4 tires and an alignment-Well they have royally screwed it up so bad and charged a $1000 for it.
Yesterday they gave us the car saying it's fixed-We drive it away and I immiedietly notice a jarring/banging noise from the rear passenger strut, then I go over a speed bump and the drivers side front strut goes "BAM" as it bottoms out.
I pull over and open the hatchback to check the back struts, the guy had put the nut on the top of the strut and crossthreaded it, but it was only holding by the 1st couple of threads-so basically the strut hadn't been tightened down at all and the idiot had crossthreaded it too. To make things worse-the top of the strut shaft has a square tang so you can hold the shaft static while you tighten the nut-this guy hadn't even gotten the nut on there enough to put a vise-grip on the tang-the nut is basically even with the top of the shaft-meaning now it can't be either tightened or loosened without vise-gripping the strut shaft itself-which scratches the mirror finish on the strut-destroying it.
The other side of the rear strut was installed correctly and had about "2 of the shaft sticking up above the nut.
OK-highly pissed off now I open the hood and check the front struts-I immiedietely notice a difference between the drivers side and passenger side-the drivers side nut is tightened so much that the strut is about 90% compressed and so when you hit a bump it bottoms out-"BAM"!
I push down on the fender on the drivers side and it's so tight I can't even get it to bounce.
The passenger side is too loose and the nut only sticks up above the shaft about 1.5".
This is outrageous for a $1000!
So I take it back and complain-the guy who does the work comes over and says in a loud tone that he's been doing this for 20 years and it was done right and is how it should be-I must've turned really really pale with rage at this point because the manager tries in vain to intervene but it's too late-I rip into the guy that I'm a half-ass not-ASE certified mechanic and any idiot would know it's wrong and I have changed struts myself-I told him your supposed to use a "torque wrench" assh%%e! The nut's are all supposed to be tightened to a specified ft/lbs reading (Der!?)-Obviously that was not the case!
I was so enraged I could barely speak. His manager should've fired him on the spot for yelling at a customer who was clearly right-but no this weasel assures me "we'll fix it sir"-shit!
Now-there supposed to have it ready in the morning-that will be 4 days and $1000 for four struts and four tires-and this is Sears-not Earl Scheib's!
Sorry-I had to vent!
Anyway-I'm going to read this tutorial (torrent!) and hit the bong...hack!
