Re: FCC & SamKnows

I can't recall the details, but you had some sort of problem a few months ago, and you finally indicated that it had been caused by some program you were running. This is why I suspected that at least a portion of the problems you are having with the router might be due to your software.

Unfortunately, a paper manual is a thing of the past with many products. Most of the time, these days, you get a CD with the manual included. Reduces costs for the manufacturer.

With your concerns about security, I am surprised that you enabled UPnP (a known security issue) on your Linksys router. Most business-grade routers (there are a few exceptions) do not even provide a means to enable this, since it is not expected that the IT department would ever wish to do it.
