update: looks like wireless doesn’t break when i use static ip addresses instead of dhcp. yay, i’m not a failure as an RCC…

edit: just kidding, static ip doesn’t do anything; looks like the problem wasn’t dhcp at all (which makes sense since I can connect; it just drops me if I ever start doing anything intensive).

apparently if you’re not right near the router then once you start doing bandwidth-intensive things you lose the connection and can’t get it back again. The weird thing is that you can’t get it back again even if you restart–it’s only the router restart/reset that fixes it, meaning there’s some kind of state in the router that gets botched.

blahhh. also sugarsync and spideroak are both bad. back to syncplicity.
