I was looking @ that but the reviews seem to be better for the d-link... and its a coupla bucks cheaper to boot :D

Netgear: Average Customer Review: 4/5 stars. Based on 540 reviews.
D-Link: Average Customer Review: 3/5 stars. Based on 31 reviews.

Doesn't really matter much though. You can't go wrong with either of them, and since the D-Link costs less right now, it's probably a better option anyway.

I don't base shopping decisions on amazon customer reviews :)

I'm looking round.. if nothing jumps out @ me in the next several hours I'll get the d-link or netgear (depending on mood @ the time)

Just don't buy a Lynksys... holes in them the size of airplanes. :p
Only in some versions and mostly older ones (this time around) ;) All brands have issues now and again anyhoo.
Netgear ones, friends of mine have some of these and they like them
I have a DLink DWL 2000AP, which I like, cept if you havent got java/javascript setup properly then you cant use the web interface, which can be annoying

I would highly advise against going with a -b only wireless router is you plan on doing any kind of network x-fers. I want to toss my router out the window any time I do a network back up. I would definitely spend the extra cash and grab a -g or extreme g (g+ or whatever).

edit: btw, I have a D-Link DI-714

I shoulda probably updated this a while back :D


bought that thinger around 2 weeks ago :)

works great... simple to use... tiny footprint and really good reception round the apartment :D

total cost after rebates was only $19.99 and they actually dropped it off @ my door the next day :D

cheers though for the headsups..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
