Don't throw away that old router yet (especially if it has dd-wrt or the like). The reason why I say that it allows you to set up an intranet (private network). Why would you need such a thing. Say you want to set up several computers, but did not want the network traffic to hit your internet network and slow it down. For example a gaming network. We are now using an intranet for the home automation network. The real world does not need to see or have access to what we are up to either.

Well ever since I was a young kid I was interested in computers. After all my dad was fixing them for people all the time. When I was about 10 my dad gave me a very old IBM Laptop.

My brother wants me to come over and watch the super bowl with him. He says he has something super for me. He sometimes has ulterior motives. Why do I feel like a mouse about to try to get the cheese from a trap? I do want to watch it on his new bigggg tv.
