    Hey guys I just got done intalling my new cable modem, I was wondering if you guys could recommend some sites where I could flex my bandwidth (besides here of course). I'm looking for games, music, movies, whatever. And mostly free of course. Any ideas?

    yeah, I wondered how long it would take someone to mention that. Looks like less than one minute. :rolleyes:
    So, now we'll move on to some other ideas.....

    Well, for starters, you can look at all of the movie previews using the "Big" option. :D

    SUUUUURE ya are. :eyebrow: Just because it says "54mbps!" on your wireless router box doesn't mean that's the speed at which you're surfing the net.

    I have Comcast Broadband and use a wireless B router to run my laptop, desktop, and my fiance's desktop. According to that dslreport site, my speed is up in the 2261k range on my laptop, which I can't complain about. :)

    Beats 56k, at least slightly. LoL

    Go check out some of the NAMM videos. There are some good ones on the Spector website.

    Who's your provider? I've got to tell my brother about that. He lives in North Austin.

    Here's the other utility besides TalkBass for cable internet:

    Once they make internet service available in one's car, I can officially fire radio.
