I don't really do tech support so much as Network design and integration. My company started out mainly as a cable manufacturer and reseller of like everything network related. Then eventually we got into the integration side, like installing LAN and WAN equip. Now we do just about everything except for computers themselves. (Tho I do PC's and Servers on my own time)

Good news with that. I just got my first big job not related to my day job. It's an existing customer that I have. I go there on weekends and after work to manage their machines (All dell BTW and 3 macs). Anywho, they're building a new office, complete with an on-premis photo lab. They gave me the whole job.
Supply them with and install,
2 routers,
1 24 port gigabit switch with 10 Git fiber uplinks
1 24 port 10/100 switch
Phone system (PBX) and all the phones
Security cameras
all the cabling for alarm, network, phones, and security cameras.
Sweet. Just picked up their blueprints and copied the Wiring and signal plan, so I can quote the job.
All the cable and equip. I'm getting from my day job, and I figure I'll just throw like 5 or 10 points on top of that.
Where I make my gravy is the labor. :)

No, but we've set it up for other companies. And I use it at home. I don't even have a phone line. My calls go out over a Cisco ATA-186.

Don't leave after you become employed, Morelos. You are the smartest guy on this forum.

Just curious, what is Morelos? What does it mean?
dude, that's one of the most meaningful things i've ever heard. thanks so much. morelos was the name of a revolutionary in mexico whose rebellion came and went in 1814-1816. he had a lot of heart, and was considered by his peers a good man, and he paid for it.

honestly, if i become employed, you'll see WAY less of me. the grad program IN COMBINATION with working will be like getting assraped by a sideways cactus.

uh, I wont do anything because I am sales and not tech suppport or anything. if your system is under warranty, call 800-289-3355 ext 66955 do not put in your service tag code through the automated system. If you are not under warranty I would suggest reformatting your system.
