They end up in my dryer. I keep finding extras in there all the time.

They go out into the hozone layer.

ok, so I was hijacking the thread about missing socks which was a hijack of the discussion about weak signals and was thinking perhaps someone would hijack again. :-)

Justing venting (in an odd way obviously) my frustration which sometimes occurs when an OP posts a question and then disappears. C-D is the best place to not only display expertise, but also a place to learn, and I thought that by keeping the thread alive, the OP might come back and say whether any of the resolutions suggested had worked.

Last post from OP. Guess it takes a few days to test these things. My guess is that sitting a router on top of a TV set is probably not the best place to put it.

Tek, please send my socks back. The ones I have are lonely without their mates.
