Why does my internet go down once or twice a day?

My internet goes down once or twice a day and it doesn't come back on until I do a power reset of the wireless router (unplug and plug back in). While this is not really a big problem, it gets kind of annoying. My computer is connected via ethernet. The router is a Linksys WRT54GS.

Floating Garbage Island Twice the Size of Texas Aimlessly Spins in Pacific Ocean

The largest dump in the world isn't outside New York or London or Shanghai but in a desolate stretch of the Pacific Ocean nearly a thousand miles from the nearest island. Held together by a slowly rotating system of currents northeast of Hawaii, the Eastern Garbage Patch is more than just a few floating plastic bottles washed out to sea; the Patch is a giant mass of trash-laden water nearly double the size of Texas.Full Article:Plague of Plastic Chokes the Seas in the LA TimesQuick Blurb:Oceans of Garbage on Vestal Design

Building a flasher circuit with a single led to flash Once, then Twice, then Three times, and then loop it? Answered

I've built some simple flasher circuits in high school, but what I need now requires a bit more than a simple flasher. I want to avoid using a micro controller or arduino. I hope there is a simple way to just loop a simple flasher circuit through multiple stages of capacitors or something, but that's why I've come here. :) This is what I need: A flasher circuit with a single LED, flashing in 3 sets before looping. It will flash ONCE (Beep). And then TWICE in quick succession (BeepBeep). And then THREE times in quick succession (BeepBeepBeep). There needs to be a delay between each set of flashes. After the 3 sets of flashes, it will loop and do it again and again. I would love lots of help on this! Thanks so much.

I need to know about the speed of sounds.? Answered

If you yave a gunshot it is going at the speed of sound.  If you shoot two guns at the very same time with really no time difference then they, the sound, would be going twice the speed of sound.  then if you had two flashlights and turned them both on at the same particle of time then would'nt they be (the light that is) be moving at twice the speed of sound? This means is I had a mirror that had 100 percent reflection i could reflect back the light and it would get there before it left the bulb and if I had a really efficient photocell it could power itsellf and only need a battery to start up.Maybe I could even start it by flashing a strobe flash from a disposable camera at it.  Can somebody give me a link for the best photocell you can find.

28BYJ-48 stepper motor driver....ULN2003 or L298N?

Hi, My goal is to have the 28BYJ-48 stepper motor turn clockwise and then counterclockwise periodically, like a pendulum motion. I have built a circuit using ULN2003 Darlington Array since most tutorials online use that. But recently I've seen some sources using the L298N Dual H-Bridge. Questions: Is it more efficient to use to L298N? I heard the ULN2003 draws more current than it needs. To add to the confusion, although the 28BYJ-48 is an unipolar motor, it can be ran in bipolar mode as well. Is the L298N only for bipolar mode? Here is the date sheet of L298N Does running a motor in bipolar mode offer twice the electrical efficiency than unipolar mode? In another word, if the load is the same, battery is twice as long (theoretically)? Please advise. Thanks
