Router Follies

29 Mar

After 4 days and about an hour with Apple technical support, I returned the not-working-properly Apple AirPort Extreme router, received my refund, and purchased a D-Link 801.11g router. Its price was 25% of that of the Apple, and it works perfectly, right out of the box.

    When I went wireless I knew I didn’t want to pay the Apple premium for the router, so I checked into Netgear. I settled on the RangeMax WPN824 which provides very good coverage around the house and yard.

    I’m a tech writer so good documentation is important to me. I previewed their docs before purchasing (most vendors will have these on their support sites). The clincher was thorough explanation with OS X screen shots for Mac users. I have never had to call for support.

    D-Link is good too, good luck with that.

    We have airport, BP, and so far, it’s worked great. 4 cpus for 2 people and all getting access no prob. (Why we need so many machines is another issue.)

    But I think the thing with apple is you never get the first release.

    Linksys also makes good routers, especiallynow that they’re a division of Cisco
