    I've had this router for about a month and a half, and it's been used for maybe 3 weeks...I bought it so that I wouldn't have to deal with wiring CAT5 to the basement (where my room is, I'm home for the summer). But, the router just doesn't seem to work for me...I'm too far from the router, the signal is too weak at times, and if I'm transfering large files or something, i hate losing the connection.
    Don't take this to mean that it's a bad router, cuz it's not, it worked straight out of the box, no firmware upgrades, no nothing. But my room is on the opposite side of the house, on another floor, my computer's underneath a desk...so yeah. [​IMG] (It's about 215 feet, linearly, plus the elevation change...and yeah, if you look at my room, it's quite messy, computer, TV, speakers, the such).
    One thing that I've thought about doing, in the fall, is building a miniHTPC (I might be selling one later, using a shuttle SS40G), and putting a wireless card or USB adapter on it, so it's light, out of the way, nondescript, AND on the net! [​IMG]
    Here is the link to OfficeMax, which is where I bought it...I don't know if there's a session ID in there or not, please let me know immediately if there is.
    Here is the link on Belkin's site...as you can see in the text, there are also 3 wired ports, so you can do like I am now, and have one computer (the family computer) wired, and have wireless computers throughout the house.
    As the prices are listed on both sites, wireless routers aren't cheap...but mine certainly is cheaper than theirs, since it has been used for a bit. I'm hoping to sell it for $115 INCLUDING SHIPPING.
    If there are any questions, feel free to email me or PM me, thanks, and PLEASE BUMP THIS THREAD, so I can sell it soon.

    By receiving unit, I assume you mean the PCI card or USB adapter that goes into the computer? I have an extra PC Card (for a laptop, US Robotics, highest quality manufacturer), but I'd have to consider selling the USB adapter I'm using now. Please email me with any questions, we can discuss it there. [​IMG]
