[quote]And let me guess, your kind hearted GF paid for her own college (I'd love to be wrong about this one).[/quote]

I have no plan to risk myself financially, but if I can offer advice, I will. That's all I'm looking for. Shot in the dark that maybe there's something out there I don't know about. I'm not very money-savvy.

My GF's father is a taxi driver in NOLA. His cab broke down about 6 months ago. He has very little money to his name. Not enough to fix his cab. It doesn't meet NOLA's cab regulations, anyway. He also has terrible credit.
He's been on Social Security (he's 66, of that matters) since, but wants t...

Awesome. It's supposed to come in today. I'll mess with it when I get back in town Thursday. I'll try and get a baseline with my current Linksys POS first to compare. :cheers:...

Just a spare Linksys WRT54. Been too lazy to get a decent router, but when I do get one, I'd rather not get one that's obsolete tomorrow....

Anyone have any experience with the Leaf Metro? It's the lower end version with a 25 mile range. tvfool.com says the four major broadcast channels are all within 13 miles of my house. Should this antenna suffice?
I found a lot of posts about Leaf antennas, but none about the Metro, specifically....
