How long can I run a wifi highspeed modem on an AAA battery using RCA cables? Answered

After seeing a hack where someone used RCA audio cable to hook up an AAA battery (either alkaline or NiMH) that would run a television set for a few minutes, I was wondering if the same could be done with a wifi highspeed modem. Two concerns are whether the simplicity of the materials might allow the battery to damage the modem and how long the battery would power the unit before running out. There is a video of the television set procedure here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rA-zhTJuFU The primary reason for using a hack like this would be its simplicity, availability and low expense of materials. The purpose would be to be able to power the modem long enough to grab and reply to vital email and other social media messages in short bursts using a wifi device (such as an iPod) in the event of a power outage. This, of course, is dependent upon whether the landline phone/highspeed internet is still accessible during a power outage.   Two other questions that arise is whether connecting two AAA cells in this fashion will increase the length of time the unit can be powered significantly and whether the increase in power would cause damage to the unit without any other materials and equipment.

Your IMO?

I need some opinions and quick before my isp closes for today at 6. After finally being fed up with my modem disconnecting 3 times in a row whilst having my smoke/coffee this morning I finally called my isp up, said my router log says that I'm getting repetive ppp modem signals because the modem keeps disconnecting. Techy said come in and swap your modem in for one of these new ones they apparently just started distributing last week because they're starting up a digital TV service in early 2008 (modem has a 4 port ethernet switch in it for the tv set top boxes). I digress... previous history is that since I've had their service which was supposed to be 3mb (and when I saw the pamplet in the office today it's 5mb now for my service, sweet) but I only see like 1.5mb, sometimes 2mb as seen in the speedtest on their own server: Test starting... Average throughput: 1444 kilobits/sec Total Time: 26128 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1455 kilobits/sec Total Time: 25932 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1486 kilobits/sec Total Time: 25386 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1555 kilobits/sec Total Time: 12135 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1341 kilobits/sec Total Time: 14065 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1114 kilobits/sec Total Time: 16929 milliseconds Done. That's only a few of them, I ran like 20 tests just to be sure there were no flukes (I ran off server sites and it was pretty much the same or slower). I had a tech guy come one time when I still had my P2 desktop going and it was doing the same thing (2 years ago?) I showed him on my computer, then he connected his laptop to my modem and on his screen it read 3000mbit/s perfectly (does that ever ever happen?). I think it was setup to do that on his computer or something. Anyways, I'm tired of this shit, new modem isn't making any differences. I was having a problem with it disconnecting, but I haven't had it hooked up long enough to find out if it's still a problem. The nice (and pretty) lady at the desk told me to call back "anytime" if it doesn't work lol. So I'm just sitting here, I still have the test window open on my laptop, should I call them up and complain some more or just forget it and get even more depressed about it?

I have just been given an old laptop to checkout, a Toshiba Tecra 8000 at that. It's a fairly old laptop and needless to say, I don't have a pcmcia ethernet cards, or any at all! I should try and aquire a crapload of them, wifi would be nice. Anywho, I'm stuck with a built in modem here, a 56k modem. I know, and have seen it done, that you can connect two computers that have dialup modems, together, and transfer data between them, and possibly share an internet connection?? I've done a bit of googling but so far all I found was about connecting two windows 98 computers together. I'm currently installing a slipstreamed version of xp onto this laptop and I have xp on here, where should I try starting with this?? I need to get an internet connection on here somehow.

Ethernet cable

I have broadband. I'm trying to set up a second network. The first one has a modem and a router. My second network just has a router so far. Since I'm subscribing for the internet, can I make an ethernet to coax cable. What I want to do is take one end of an ethernet cable and one end of a coax cable and put together. Which wires do I put on? This is probably really confusing, but this is the best way I can describe it.

How can I make a USB to 56k Modem or Ethernet to 56k/fax Modem?

I'm trying to reconnect my Sega Dreamcast to the internet, the trouble is that it only has a 56k phone-line modem. How can I "slow down" my internet for it, without spending $30 on a store-bought (http://www.usr.com/products/modem/modem-product.asp?sku=USR5637) or editing my computer's registry and using its internal pci modem. (http://dreamcast-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t;=1956).  What would you guys recommend? Thanks in advance. :) Edit: As far as I know, Dreamcast communicates like a PC does on dial up - though sometimes there's not enough voltage through the line. Could a spare dsl modem be reversed, providing a dail tone and 56k? This is a better option for me than all the other methods mentioned because its automated and more like using actual dial-up. (No registry edit, no manual line swap, no voltage line regulator

Internet Lag?

I've had a lot of success with questions on this site so I thought I would ask this one. My internet works fine most of the time. I have one computer that has a modem and router hooked up to it for internet. I also have another computer that is wireless in the next room over, and an xbox that can go wireless or wired (mostly wired). The wireless computer can always be connected, but the the other computer (with the modem and router) has to be disconnected if I want to play xbox online. If I don't disconnect it, I will lag all over the place while trying to play some Call Of Duty on xbox. Yet the wireless computer doesn't affect it what-so-ever. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this or why it is happening? Thanks.

Modem with one ethernet port, have two units to plug in?

I have a Motorola SURFboard SB5101U cable modem. It has one Ethernet port and one USB ("square" type) port. I have an Apple Airport Express wireless plugged into the Ethernet port.  Here's the problem.  I want to use "MagicJack Plus" (VoiP) without plugging it into the computer (THE difference from the "regular" MagicJack, that it (the Plus) can be plugged directly into the modem, bypassing the computer, so the computer doesn't have to be left on 24/7 for your phone service).  My question is, can a simple Ethernet (pigtail) splitter be used to plug both the MagicJack Plus and the Apple Airport Express wireless into the modem?  I know this can be "Physically" but is the "signal" degraded in any way to the two units?
