On/Off Topic Chit-Chat / Does anyone have a metal roof ?

Wow. You must have a lot of roof. I want to get a couple estimates for a metal roof. Are there any installers you would recommend?

If so, who did the installation? I want to get a couple estimates.

How does the cost compare to a fiberglass shingle roof?

Thanks. I don't stream 4k yet. We don't even have a 4k set. I just want to be set for when I do.

It sounds like I would be fine with a 100 Mbps unit.
I need to buy a router/ modem, and I want it to be future proof for a while.

Is a modem and router that has speeds up to 100 Mbps all that's required?

Or should I look for a 300 Mbps unit?

Thanks guys.

Loadstar, the SBG6782-AC is on their list. It's lists speed up to 100 Mbps. Will that work well for 4k streaming, or should I buy a 300 Mbps unit?
Thanks for the info, but we want a combo unit.

To be able to stream 4k video in the future, what specs should I be looking for?

Can anyone recommend the best choice from TWC's approved list linked to above?
I want to buy a modem/router combo unit to avoid paying TWC's lease fee and Wi-Fi fee.

Budget about $125. Can anyone recommend a good one?

I have EarthLink high speed internet, and I got a letter today saying the price is going up AGAIN !!

I have broadband internet only from EarthLink. I live in the Village of Summit.

What other choices do I have?

Does anyone know if there are any free tickets available, and if so, where?

Thanks. The router we own, but the modem was included with our internet.
Thanks guys. My router is still working well since the new firmware, etc.

Is there a benefit to having the router and modem in one unit vs. a separate modem and router?
I have EarthLink high speed internet and was curious if you rent or own your router, and why?

Currently I use the included Motorola modem and own a Netgear router. I had a problem this weekend with my router, and could not access the internet. I had to go thru a bunch of BS with Netgear over the phone, but it's working now. The router had to be re-configured and new firmware installed.

Milwaukee HDTV Equipment / Local shops selling antennas?

I bought my Winegard antenna at Skywalker Communications in New Berlin. Yes, they do sell to the general public.
