OK, wonderful I get the point. It seems although you are unfamiliar with this software, you feel obligated to belittle me about posting here.
Wrong and wrong.
I never said I wasn't familiar with DDWRT. I said:
"Myself, I prefer Tomato firmware to DDWRT.
This implies I have looked over DDWRT (ergo me saying, "I prefer Tomato") and decided against using it in favor of the Tomato firmware. Just for the sake of clarity, I will say pointedly (so there's not mistake) that I have indeed checked out DDWRT and found it inferior on several levels to Tomato and thus I made the choice to use Tomato. In case you're curious, I'm using the Linksys WRT54GL routers with Tomato on them as wireless access points here where I work (not my idea but due to budgetary contraints our Enterprise Wireless project has been put on hold for the 3'd year running *sigh)
I'm was not belittling you.
You said, and I quote, "but part of the reason I started the post/question was to start a conversation or maybe see if someone else had a similar experience,that's it." and I responded and told you this was the wrong place for such a discussion.
- this is a Networking forum dedicated to networking issues (ie: lack of connectivity, routing, switching etc etc ad infinitum)
- DDWRT is software. Albeit 3'd party firmware for a Linux based router, but still, software none the less.
- Your original post, and the follow up explanation of why you posted here have nothing to do with actual networking or, a network related problem
- This, as I said, is the wrong place to post this question/attempt at a discussion.
What part of "this is the wrong place" do you see as me belittling you? Where have I ever once been rude to you or insulted you?
For whatever reason, you got your nose out of joint and there's nothing I can do about that. I won't apologize to you for you mistaking my meaning or (possibly) intentionally taking something I've said the wrong way because as I see it, I've done, and said, nothing wrong.
Sure, there may be other people who hang out in this Networking forum who are also (as in, "like me") familiar with DDWRT but that doesn't change the final and most important fact:
This is the Networking forum and therefore, the wrong place for a discussion on software
You're of course free to respond again (unneccessarily) but it would be a waste of your time since I won't respond again to you. If you become insulting I will delete this thread (yes, I'm a moderator on this forum). I would prefer not to delete it though in case in the future anybody else shows up here in the Networking forum looking to open a dicussion on any software I can point them at this particular thread and they'll (hopefully) understand that this is the wrong place to try to open discussions on any software unrelated to networking.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
