    Dying in my arms...

    My wireless router has become very sporadic in its ability to connect me with anything. I may be going dark until sometime Monday, when I can buy a new one. It had been giving us trouble, and I upgraded the firmware, which seems to have put the final nail in the coffin.
    Cheers,

    Agreed, the titled scared me. I think my router is wearing out or like every internet service I have subscribed to works great for a year or so and then starts degrading. Normally because the provider has over subscribed their service.

    Just went through the loss of a wireless router myself. Mine was probably 10 years old. I bought a dual band Asus 450 Mbps N band router as a replacement.

    The improvement in speed for my laptop and tablet is incredible. I no longer have to wait for a screen to load when I am surfing. Everything is virtually instantaneous now and is as fast as my desktop. I should have upgraded years ago.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    OK, sorry I scared you, but if I had a real family tragedy, I'd have used a less flippant title. It didn't occur to me that you would think I had suffered a serious loss, given the title. Again, sorry!

    MIne's a Tenda, a cheap Chinese knock-off. And it's a plug-in, too!

    I replaced my wireless router a few months ago with this unit and the adapter on my shop computer with this one. I now have a very solid connection at all times and the price was right.
