Router Hack – How to Connect a Mifi Hotspot Device into a Router/Wired Network!

One of our readers asked me if there was a way to connect a MiFi hotspot device such as Verizon’s MiFi or Sprint’s 4G Overdrive into a wired network/router. I googled it and found that you can do it with DD-WRT.

I probably wouldn’t do that if you do a lot of downloading such as Bittorrent as ISP will get mad at you if you over-use the device. (and could terminate your contract)  They are really made for travel and portability, not for full-time computing.  I think so, but you are free to check out what the limits are by downloading a bunch of pron and leaving us

Router Hack – How to Turn Your Router into a Universal WiFi Repeater!

Recently, my parent’s DSL modem died (after about 10 years of constant use) so I had to replace it with a Belkin router that also has a DSL modem integrated.   Well, now they are left with a useless Linksys router because the Belkin does both, acting as both a DSL modem and router.

Connectify is a free Windows 7 software that lets you turn your Windows 7 into a WiFi hotspot.  Of course, there’s other more complicated ways of doing this but I think this is the simplest and since the software is free, this could be a great way to make your hotel wired internet into WiFi for everyone in your family.

Linux Ubuntu DIY – How to Setup DDNS on your Ubuntu!


I have a nice little Linux Ubuntu box I setup here in my apartment with a KVM switch but most of the time, I use command lines to SSH into my linux box.

When I am away from from home and I want to access my linux box, I can access it (SSH into it) using DDNS (dynamic DNS).  This is great since I have my own backup server plus I can test out my web servers on my linux box before going live.

Anyways, if you are looking for easy solution on how to setup DDNS on your Ubuntu machine, ddclient is probably the easiest.  You can

Palm Pre Hack – How to SSH into a Palm Pre!


Here’s a write-up I did over at my new Palm Pre Hacks blog on how to SSH into a Palm Pre.  Check it out if you got a Palm Pre and ahead of the curve. 🙂

The second day I got the Palm Pre, I was able to SSH into my own Palm Pre and also make it into a WiFi Router.  Of course, this is usual business for me as I manage about 30+ web servers on a daily basis.  If I see a linux machine, the first thing I want to do is SSH into it.
