[quote]..just something to wear. Normal cotton t shirts[/quote]
Seems most companies really put a poor effort into making a decent cotton t-shirt. Either they're thick & boxy and made with way too much material around the mid-section and on the sleeves, or they tend to be thin and cheap.

Same here. They are instantly comfortable like a nice, well-worn jersey t-shirt. And the fit tends to look good. If you're athletic, they subtly accentuate it. If you're not, they have enough weight to...

In line with the last two posts, make sure router and modem are set to the same speed / duplexing speed. Whatever the speed is on both devices, see if you can change it. For instance, there's likely some auto-speed detect setting. If it's not already set to that, try it and see if it makes a differe...
