An interesting stat on electrolytic capacitor life expectancy:

Electrolytic capacitors are typically rated for 1,000 to 5,000 hours of life at rated voltages and temperatures. That is less than one year !
(from: http://goo.gl/Kh3Dg)

Oh, and apparently they call it an "Output cap" in an SMPS - It's a "Filter cap" in a linear power supply (I'm no electrical engineer - I just like messing around with electronics).

I have a D-Link wireless USB stick...I have found that if I loose connection on it (frequently) I just kink the cable a few times and it comes back...so I suspect that the cable is actually wonky on them...

I have tried this on a few and it actually works every time...but it could also be the position of the stick...I don't know...I just wiggle it around a bit and it comes back...but I have noticed that in certain spots on certain days my hearing aides hum like crazy when I turn them to the lowest setting (actually, it is a phone setting) and when this happens my stick does not work as well..

I figured it to be some sort of EMF interference that my hearing aides pick up and it affects the WiFi signal to the stick...

What type of wireless router do I need to hook my wii up to the internet if I dont have a computer?
Any kind you want? Without a computer you won't be able to change any of the settings (like the password) but pretty much any basic router will work out of the box.
