So that's what the problem was

I didn't spend all my sleep-deprived time early this morning playing spaceships on the internet. I also cleared up some more free space on Cowzilla's hard drive by deleting some games and the incredibly annoying software for the router. So now I have 20% free space on the hard drive and can watch YouTube again, to say nothing of everything working a lot more smoothly and not dropping the wireless connection every twenty minutes. Of course, hooking the other Ethernet connection (on the USB hub) into the router may have helped too, I don't really know. The kids are the network geeks in this family, not me. Anyway, once I can figure out where I can squeeze out a couple hundred bucks for an external hard drive case I can clear off a bunch more pornstuff from Cowzilla's hard drive and then things should run even more smoothly.

Just out of curiosity... (And because I have a few mid-size USB HDs that I'm thinking of retiring...) How large/fast an external HD were you thinking of getting?

It's more a case of buying cases for the two drives that used to live in my Compaq Deskpro. They weren't very big drives, but they weren't very full, either, as I recall. Speed isn't that big a deal. I have a lot of stuff backed up on ZIP discs, and those don't load too quickly through the parallel port.
