Byte: Newfangled Internets

Well, as you can probably tell, since I'm using the internets to write this to you, the installation of my new router went swimmingly. Plug it all in, follow the Instructions For Numpties(tm) on the configuration CD, and within 20 minutes, I had everything up and running. No faffing about manually configuring DNS settings, oh no. This is an intelligent router that doesn't need you to tell it what to do. I just had to put in my ISP username and password, set up the SSID and encryption settings, and voila!

Even the Wii detects it and configures itself without too much pissing about. I am pleased. My old router is less pleased, however, since it is now sitting in the bin.
