Google AJAX Search API Wizards - Google AJAX Search API - Google Code: "Google AJAX Search API Wizards"
I found this today while searching around. There is a wizard that allows you to create an AJAX news bar and place it on your web site. I am sure there will be more wizards to come in the future.

If you own a Linksys WRT54G3G and you are having problems then please keep reading. I have worked for a couple of months now to figure out why my router and my Pantech PX-500 card would not work properly together. I was already running Linksys 2.00.9 firmware and my Pantech card also had the most recent firmware. My router would not stay connected, would not auto connect all the time, and just overall was very unreliable. After upgrading my router with OpenWRT Firmware I was able to finally have a reliable internet connection.
Please see this thread below for information on where to find the OpenWRT firmware and how to install the new firmware on your router.

If you are looking to purchase one of these great routers I would check eBay. I just purchased one shipped for under $60

After purchasing a Sprint broadband card I wanted to see if there was a way to make it work with Ubuntu Linux. After lots of searching I found a document on Sprints web site that details the steps required to get their broadband cards working. The card I purchased was the Pantech PX-500. I am using Ubuntu 7.04, so the instructions were a little different. I had no need to configure the modem for graphical access, I just wanted a simple script I could run to share broadband using my old Linux laptop.
Here are the steps I followed to get the card working:
  1. Follow the steps on pages 21-22 of the Sprint guide.
  2. Setup masquerading on your Linux box. I used the command "sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE". This will be different depending on your network configuration.
  3. And the final step that was somewhat hard to figure out was to setup IP forwarding. This was the magic trick to completing the whole setup "sudo sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1". There appears to be several ways to make this work, but using sysctl was the only way I could make it work with my specific configuration.
  4. Bring up your connection with "sudo wvdial" and enjoy!
