I have a shitty cable modem (bad wifi, drops and so on). Would a possible solution to get better wireless be to just buy a router? Unfortunately I can't replace the modem. Someone I talked to said I should get a wifi modem, but again, can't replace etc...

You should be able to turn off the wifi part of the router and plug in your own. So yes, if the crummy shitbox your ISP gave you is bad, get something better.

Wait, so I couldn't just plug in a new router and ignore the wifi the modem sends out? I unfortunately can't replace the modem the ISP provided. I assume I would need to disable the modem's wifi as well (questions herpderp I am not savvy).

Like right now, there's no router as it stands.

Yes there is; your modem is one of the router+modem combos that are really popular now. Either you turn off the router portion of your modem (ask your ISP how) and plug in your own, or do what you said and ignore the wifi that your router+modem gives out.

Those are so called welcome messages. (sent as notices) I guess you could add Q to your ignore list. :P

@Furai Thx! I Ignored Q and edited the ignore in Adress Book (ALT+B) to only ignore notices.

@Fawkzy @Bistoufly I'm curious about other IRC clients that perhaps would have a cleaner GUI, so I will try the ones you mention :) But I have all the functionality I need in Mirc.

I'll second hexchat (a continuation of x-chat). Very clean and simple, but still very functional.

I know if you make a 1x2 pixel graphic, the top pixel transparent, and the bottom one a black pixel, stretched vertically it will look like a black gradient. The transparent pixel's color probably shouldn't matter afaik.

Well, been wondering, where is there a place to get free desktop backgrounds?

It seems to be one of the most popular sources of backgrounds nowadays. From the few times I've used it, its reputation is well-earned.

Thanks.

Is there any alternative to port forwarding? Maybe some sort of IP routing from maybe a VPS that has open ports. There's also uPNP but that's not an option in this scenario, unfortunately.

I'd like to host a Soldat server. Probably going the VPS route.

If port forwarding isn't working for you, it's possible your ISP is using CG-NAT (read the wiki on this) which makes port forwarding impossible.

So, renting a VPS or using a hosting provider (like mine) would be your easiest bet
