Train trou­ble

Sun­day 2 Oc­to­ber 2005 01:46

Usu­al­ly I can get around a piece of rail net­work that's dis­rupt­ed due to a pow­er fail­ure, but yes­ter­day I was al­ready in the train when every train around Utrecht was halt­ed due to a pow­er fail­ure at around 19:00. After one hour I was still strand­ed at Maarsen sta­tion. But in Maarsen is a mall, and in that mall is a Dixon's. So while wait­ing for al­ter­na­tive trans­port I bought a Linksys WRT54G wire­less router. And now I'm en­joy­ing the lux­u­ry of wire­less in­ter­net around the house. The set­up is still a bit awk­ward with the Speed­touch 510 and the Linksys both do­ing DHCP serv­ing and pro­vid­ing dif­fer­ent IP ranges, but chang­ing the ACL for squid was the about the only re­con­fig­ur­ing I had to do. It works out of the box, and then se­cur­ing it is easy enough.
