    It's employees like this that are driving them to bankruptcy....

    About Rogue Cisco Employee Michael "mrtravelkay" Voight,
    a.k.a. the "mrtravel" Netkook Troll/Usenet Flooder

    "mrtavelkay" is the latest usenet handle of a brainless troll whose real name is
    Michael Voight, email <>.

    He is better known by his previous stupid handle, "mrtravel".

    The idiot works for Cisco in San Jose and apparently they don't
    keep him busy enough so he has to troll usenet when he isn't
    looking for foreign brides to marry in exchange for money
    in alt.visa.us.marriage-based and alt.personals.big-folks, or trying
    to pick up minors in alt.personals.teens or any of the number of creepy
    newsgroups he frequents. Some of his other trolling aliases are Network
    Guy, , sleepydoc <>, jlhunt
    news.sf.sbcglobal.net <>, not-nomen
    <>,<>, David Tanner
    <>, Jeff Davies <>.

    All intelligent members of the usenet community have killfiled him, so he takes
    great pains to get past their killfiles by rubbing his only two cerebral neurons
    together and coming up with gems like: mrtrav <>, mrtrav3
    <>, mrraveltay <>, and mrtravelkay
    <>.
    The lastest product of his brain diarrhea is BobTheBuilder
    <>.
    He seems to like to hang out in alt.personals.fat. Hmmm....

    His phone number is 831-252-2606.

    He's got a daughter in Orange County that one of his ex-wives had the
    intelligence to take away from him. Lord only knows what could have
    happened to her if she had continued to live with the kook. The other kids
    he has belong to his previous Russian sleazy brides, and since they come
    and go so do the kids. It wouldn't hurt to let Cisco know what kind of
    deviant sexual pervert maniac they have working for them, so....

    For starters, forward his idiotic posts to .

    He works in technical support, so forward them to .

    He often posts through sbcglobal and prodigy, so forward them to
    and as well.

    You can also call them at 1 800 553 2447 and ask to speak with a supervisor
    and explain that you are EXTREMELY unhappy that this idiot spends his whole
    day at work playing on the internet on company time. THEY WILL NOT LIKE
    THAT.

    Then write to corporate headquarters explaining what this idiot is doing
    and telling them HOW BAD IT IS FOR THEIR COMPANY IMAGE. They will LOVE
    that you brought this to their attention:

    Cisco Systems, Inc.
    170 West Tasman Dr.
    San Jose, CA 95134
    USA

    Then also call them. You should always follow up email or letters with
    phone calls. Always ask for supervisors or managers. Try to get as far up
    as possible.

    (408)526-4000
    (800)553-NETS or
    (800)553-6387

    Contact Investor Relations and tell them you are interested in investing in
    their company but won't do so until they get rid of this asshole who is
    wasting company resources:

    Cisco Systems, Inc.
    Investor Relations Department
    170 West Tasman Drive
    San Jose, CA 95134-1706
    Phone: (408) 526-8890
    Fax: (408) 526-4545
    Email:

    Might as well contact customer service too, they LOVE to hear about this
    type of stuff:

    USA 1 800 553 6387




    Then finally, send letters with copies of his nasty posts addressed
    personally to each one of the OFFICERS of the company using the
    headquarters address. Believe me, they READ your complaints and are VERY
    INTERESTED in them, especially if it's about one of their employees. They
    will take a PERSONAL interest in rooting this ASSHOLE out of their company:

    John Morgridge, Chairman
    John Chambers, President, CEO
    Donald Valentine, Vice Chairman
    Larry Carter, CFO, Sr. VP-Fin. and Admin., Sec., Director
    Richard Justice, Sr. VP, Worldwide Field Operations

    Have fun!

    Just give me two minutes. Then I will forget about living my own life
    and spend it chasing one Cisco employee.

    Agree...
    What a dork. I rather suggest him focus on something else in his life, if
    he has that kind of energy to pick on one guy.

    There are other reasons. Software firewalls, such as those from
    McAfee, Norton, ZoneAlarm, Kerio, etc., etc., are making
    hardware routers obsolete. Software based routers can do a lot
    of things that hardware routers cannot do.

    Hardware routers do a lot of things that antivirus and personal firewall
    software (!!) cannot do. Like, for instance, route packets.

    As for the hardware routers I think you're talking about, I'm pretty sure
    Cisco makes most of its money in markets where $69 Linksys boxes are not in
    the running.

    Linksys *is* Sisco.

    And BTW, their boxes aren't bad. At least they run linux, not some crappy
    stuff from Billy the kid.

    I love people who can pack a lot of bad information into short snappy
    sentences. That's why I luvs this group.
    A "hardware router" actually consists of a NIC, processor/memory,
    a crossbar, and a helluvalotov software that really does the actual
    "routing".

    Got a PC with a network card? Add routing software, voila,
    you got yourself a router.
    Cisco bought out Linksys a couple years ago or so. Those Linksys boxes
    that are flying off the shelves are actually Cisco boxes.

    Cisco has had a clear strategy in the last decade of diversifying
    by acquisition into every possible area of networking, including consumer.
    Backbone and large-scale enterprise IP routing
    constitutes less than 50% of their business.

    I thought Sisco rides the Enterprise. His real name is Linksys? :-/ Damn,
    that's going to frost the onions of a lot of Trekies.

    Besides, Cisco routers run their own software, and Cisco has its own operating
    system. So the philosophical difference between a real Cisco router and a
    home-built linux-based router isn't that great. Where the difference is very
    big is in the feature set ,quality and support, as well as performance.

    You're little Linux based router on a wintel PC may work well, but none of the
    hardware was optimized to transfer/route backbone bandwidth. They just need to
    route packets of one little home lan over to some DSL/cable line (low speed by
    internet standards). Real routers must route multiple gigabit ethernet streams
    of packets onto each other.

    Linksys is not "Cisco". They are owned by Cisco. But the products are TOTALLY
    different. Linksys is low end, low quality, low cost. Cisco is the opposite on
    all 3 counts.

    Note, it doesn't mean Linksys doesn't work. They wouldn't have gotten so
    popular if their gear didn't work. But they are aimed at a wintel market.
    Cisco is aimed at the telecom and enterprise markets.

    Can it legally be considered a "router" if it has only one network card ? (I
    guess routing between subnets on a LAN ?).

    I think my box says Cisco. "Linksys, a division of Cysco," or something
    like it.

  15. This is true. Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) made hardware
    routers obsolete when it premiered with Windows 98SE back in 1999.
    With ICS, there is no need to buy a hardware router, ICS, plus some
    firewall software, and $50 Linksys network switch, is all I needed to set
    up a LAN at home. That setup makes hardware firewalls/routers
    obsolete.

    Same way Casino® made Las Vegas obsolete and mobile homes are driving the housing
    industry out of business.

    This was possible well before 1999. All you needed for connecting two
    segments together was a box with dual interfaces and ip forwarding
    enabled. I was doing it in 1988 with IBM RT. Of course, back then
    Nomen/Starwars/Edo never posted about "IBM going out of business"

    If you need a firewall to protect an easily infectable platform (Windows),
    then you would be absolutely stupid to run the firewall on that easily
    infectable platform. It is like asking the wolfe to protect the henhouse.


    And routers don't only do firewalling, nor NAT nor PAT. There are a lot more
    functions to a router than when home users use them for.

    No kidding. If they were obsolete in 1999, why are billions of dollars
    worth getting sold every year. BTW, What PC based product can I use as
    a ADSL router to replace an 827, since I just found out from a poster
    that it was obsolete. What about Cable? Is there a product I can run
    on WinXP on my home PC to replace a cable router?

  20. You do need to add a second network card to your computer, if your
    internet connection is a broadband connection.
