I don't know much about Debian. I run Slackware and have
never had a connectivity/DNS problem with my [Seimens] router.
I just run `dhcpcd` and it takes care of `ifconfig`, `route`
and DNS. /etc/resolve.conf points at the router.
The router hangs occasionally, and will get bounced and
reconnect weekly, often with a new IP, gateway and DNS servers
via DHCP from the telco [DSL].
Haven't tried the latest nVidia drivers, but never had any trouble
installing them. Two packages, you have to do in the right order.
Just the usual tar & make.
Binary versions? I just grab the tar.gz's. The packages
probably only work with pre-packaged kernels and I never
use them. Sympathies on the 60 Hz, but it shouldn't be so
bad for you since AFAIK fluorescents are 50 Hz where you are.
You _know_ better than to use poxy hardware.
