    DIY Speakers
    Just a FYI to the speaker builders or future speaker builders. I had a couple Jasper circle jigs. I recently upgraded my router to this amazing porter cable 7539. I just went to do some wood work and found that my Jasper circle jigs are now useless as the holes don't match up. I was pretty...

    For the end caps and for making flares, what router bits should I buy ? I need one to cut out the caps, and I need one to round the edges of the caps for finishing. I also need a larger one for the port flairs. Newfie Speed and Sport has several bits and sets...
  5. Router and Modem Upgrades

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I'm a little slow to upgrade when I have something that is dependable and works. Have had the same Chevy almost 30 years and a Buick for 18, both are dependable, have a lot of miles and cost very little to maintain. So when Comcast called a couple of years ago about my outdated Linksys WCG200...

    I'm in the market for a projector with an Ethernet port like Viewsonic PJD6223. My AVR also has an Ethernet port. I was wondering if the setup I have diagramed below would work if I use the HDMI cables that have the built in Ethernet cable from Monoprice.com. I’ m also not sure if the projector...

    Has anyone had any dealings with this product? It has a remote that has a 200 ft range, to turn on and off in 6 rooms of speakers and control volume. Is there other products like this on the market? THIS You Tube explains what it is -
  12. Can you use a wireless router as just a Switch?

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I have my house wired with a cat-5 network. My existing router is a Linksys 8-port router that still works just fine. It is in a location that is really awkward to get to if any wiring changes are needed (don't ask). In my living room I have a 5-port 10/100 Linksys switch to give me more...

    I'm building a HT sub and will (FINALLY!) bite the bullet to buy my own router. What routers do you guys use (make & model) and what is your opinion of them? BTW, I assume that most routers are compatible with the Jasper jigs, which I am also buying. I'm also assuming that everyone is using...

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a wireless router? The one that came with my internet is the weak link (and out of warranty), so I'm looking for a replacement. I've read about the new Draft N stuff and that is not necessary, but I would like 4 gigabit ports, which would...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Split from "Need new sub, thought i would build one! Eric, how did you make your jig? Did you just measure to make the appropriate holes you needed for the cutout, recess, and port opening? I've been tempted to buy one of the nice jigs, but it seems like a lot of people have been getting...
  18. Router Question

    DIY Speakers
    My 30 plus years crusty old Sears router finally became unusable because the starter button pivoted on a cheap plastic pin that broke. While some ambitious person would have found a way to repair it, I found it as a good excuse to finally get a decent router. In any case, I bought a Bosch and so...

    I know this is kind of a lame question but my experience with routers is limited. I just bought a Craftsman 2HP router and wondered what bit you use to cut out your endcaps? Also, does anyone have a suggestion for circle or compass jigs? Not sure which one will fit the router or work best for...
