wrt54g v7 choking (intermittent dropouts) and hidden firmware

Hmm, the linksys wrt54g.. routers have a decent reputation, so without research I popped in a store and got one for my parents. I got the v7, and it turns out impossible to flash with the dd-wrt or openwrt firmwares.
I needed to get something else on there because everytime I visited and/or my siblings did and brought their computer, the router would choke, pretty quick, and deny internet to everyone. A quick reboot and we would be good to go for another 5 minutes.
No new firmware to be found on the linksys website (I had 7.00.4).

But!! It turns out the UK version did have new firmware 7.00.8 and so far, it does appear to solve the choking problem. Yaya, so to all you fellow sufferers, get your fresh firmware here today!

Addicted to HiFi

Once you had a taste of HiFi sound you never want to go back. I first bought the shure e2c pair, and not intentionally for it's HiFi-qualities, that was back in the day where I still road a motorbike and wanted some music on long rides. They did the job at blocking outside noise and then I discovered, using different sleeves, they were pretty good as well, I rediscovered music.
Now I bought the cheaper Apple's in-ear headphones, it's like a second coming, they perform as advertised and I have yet to experience the negative comments the product got.
I wouldn't say I'm an audiophile but if you like music, go HiFi!

It's always a chance to buy them, like the BOSE ones that are always on display in Best-Buys, the price held me back, and you have to be careful, it's not just the headphones, it's also the recording, and BOSE knows how to pick a song to advertise their stuff.
