The sir thing gives it away.. its a middle eastern outsourced tech support company. Very common in the webhosting industry and its spreading to others.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Also - its hardly definitive im afraid.
Will i be winning the lottery at the weekend?
Oh theres every chance that i shall, but im afraid i cant be certain until the numbers are drawn.
^^ Thats basically what ' Netgear ' have said.  Roll eyes
Just because they havent said no, doesnt mean its a yes - swapping to newer hardware will be better anyway... as you'll get a better bang for buck (or should) and a better CPU etc. so should allow more data to be passed, with less utilisation = a long lasting router.
