I remember when I had dial-up, it was when I got my first computer. Then we got High Speed and a Microsoft router. Then the router was too slow and got Linksys router which is much better. Routers are a pain in the ass, connection sometimes disconnect and whatnot.

You're JK right? You know; modem, telephone line, slower than mollasses in January. My first setup was dial-up w/ aol. What a joke! I'm still not using a co-ax connect, I have dsl and that's fast enough for what I do. (no on-line gaming)
I have an in-law that lives in the mountains that has a dial-up and he has an old computer running on windows 98. (new windows operating system out in Dec.- Vista) His connection speed is so slow it must be like <25k. It's like 2 tin cans & a string, lol.
