Practical Tips For Women and More

comcast1 dlink-dr-655-router-wifi

I just switched from AT&T Yahoo! DSL to Comcast and have to spend couple hours trying to figure out how to install D-Link DR-655 Extreme N Wireless Router to work with Comcast Cable Internet.

After a little bit of research on the Internet, I found that a lot of people had the same problems with Comcast. Now, the idea is that you need to clone your PC’s MAC address to your router, so the Comcast router doesn’t hang up when you connect your router to the modem.

Here’s an outline of how you could get your router to work with Comcast:

Part I – Connect your PC to the Cable modem

1) Turn off both your PC and cable modem

2) Turn on your PC and cable modem, and let the connection be established.

3) Ensure that the internet connection is active and running

Part II – Connect your Router to the Cable modem

1) Turn off cable modem and PC

2) Unplug your computer from the cable modem

3) Plug your computer into the router, leaving the router unplugged from the cable modem.

4) Enter the router’s configuration with your web browser, normally the way to access is this:

5) Tell the router to Clone your Mac Address. wait a few seconds.

6) Plug the router into the cable modem.

By now, I hope that it should work. Let me know if it does or doesn’t work.

Posted by editor On May - 22 - 2008

Calm angry wife

Women in general tend to be more emotional and reactive than men. Especially in a household, husband and wife can get entangled over issues of little or non-critical importance. Not only this is detrimental to the marriage and unnecessary stress, it can also leave you bitter with one another.

So the question is: “How could you calm an ‘angry’ wife?”

Apparently this is quite a common issue in husband and wife relationship, and here are some tips and suggestions to calm an “angry” wife:

Here goes the list:

  • wash the dishes
  • flowers
  • be kind and sweet to her. Apologize for any wrong doings.
  • just agree with her, even if you don’t, be calm yourself. Two angry people only is going to end up in a big mess. Once the situation is calmed down then approach her carefully and let her know how you really felt. Good Luck to you and God Bless
  • If she said ” leave me alone” LEAVE HER ALONE. Do not force her to talk by asking the same questions over and over. She may just answer. And you won’t like the answer. Give her space and let her be angry. It is ok and healthy to be mad. She will calm down when she is done being angry. ( It has taken me a couple of days to get over being mad at my husband) be patient.
  • When a woman is angry: run. Run like the wind. I am not kidding.

    Napa Valley in California has long been known for its wine among travelers. These days Napa Valley is quite a popular destination especially among newly-weds, honeymooners, couples as well as food lovers, families, and freinds. Not long ago I discover this Kenwood inn & spa in sonoma county through a friend of mine. I tried staying there on the weekend, oh my it’s just so beautiful, like staying in the Tuscan country side. This place is really romantic, I’m just in love with its setting, architectures, more over they have pretty good gourmet breakfast cook to suit your need and excellent service.
