Internet router upgrade
This weekend I had to get a new internet router due to a bad upgrade of the old one.
The old one was a linksys "G" type wifi router (54g) that is about 6 years old and didn't think an "N" type (300g) would make much difference, boy was I wrong. My old router got 11 - 13 Mbps download speeds, the new one is getting 22 - 25 Mbps and a very noticeable difference at that.
I got the Cisco e2500, which is dual band, allowing 2.4 ghz and 5.0 ghz connections and is compatible with B/G/N type connections. It also has built in guest access, giving guests a private wifi connection keeping them off your internal network.
Still looking at fixing the old one, but after 4 hours I had to call it a loss and it just wasn't going to get it done anytime this week.
