Anybody have pre 7.5.2 Airport Extreme firmware they can share?

Finally upgraded to an Airport Extreme, and it came with the latest firmware, which is running slow as fawk. Sounds like a lot of people are backdating to older versions, which is fixing the problem, but since this is new I only have one version installed.

Or any advice. Speedtest shows it’s running just as fast as my old router, but pageloads are suuper slow.

I have it pre-installed.

WindowsXP Error – "Assertion Failed" ?

Okay, so I’d like to consider myself pretty computer savvy as I’ve built 3 pc’s and regularly fix my friends and my own pc from malware and other shit. Anyway, my mom has an old laptop(6+ yrs) and she’s getting this error:

"Assertion Failed – window title
Assertion Failed: False
.GameInfo.cpp, line 338"

She says it happens after playing solitaire or any of the windows games. She’s running XP Home. I was helping, or at least trying, buy running a disc cleanup and defrag, and while it was doing both of those, the same error would pop up from time to time and I wasn’t playing any games while those commands ran. I goggled the error and found no info for what she’s doing. I tried a safe-mode start up and the error went away and I also checked her starting programs via msconfig and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. If I could remember, I’d try turning off the games but I haven’t been in that since I built my first XP pro PC years back and turned off services like MSmessenger from the WINDOWS settings, not just the MSCONFIG settings. I’m sure I’m not using the correct lingo, but if anyone has run into this before, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Anyone on here use smac 2.0?. I was thinking about purchasing the basic one for 40 bucks. When you buy it online do you get your registration number emailed to you?. Or do you have to wait till the package comes in.

Transfer apps to new MBP?

The lady & I are getting married in two weeks. After we get married we’ll be plunking down for a new MBP. Is there a way to take CS3 & MS Office with me? It came on the laptop i currently have & i don’t have foggiest where the disks went.

Both of our current MBPs are getting sold when we get new ones so I’d "deauthorize" them if it’s possible to retain these without plunking down $$$ for new software. it’s not pirated software just don’t want to loose it if i can help it
