Networking

The computer kind… I decided to upgrade my network with the new Wireless-N technology. The draft “n” standard is still not finalized, but far enough along – I think – to make the leap. I went with Linksys (WRT610N), since I’ve found them reliable in the past. This router is faster than my old G and also has great range.

The router comes with Linksys EasyLink Advisor, which makes the setup easy and it gives a nifty graphic view of your network. The router has 4 ports on the back for my desktops, which are wired and the laptops found the network automatically. Sharp looking device too. I was a bit leery of the built in antenna, but it works like a dream. Nice when upgrades go so smoothly.

    This model has a dual-n band, so more expensive. I wanted a stronger signal, because I live in a townhouse with lots of other networks around. But, if you don’t need the dual-n band, check out the Linksys WRT160N for $67.99.
