The Wireless Age

Well, with thanks to Jason for making the money available and to Boots for the expertise, Vickie and I have finally splashed out on a Wireless router. It's a Netgear WGR614, and aside from an IP address conflict during setup (which Boots was able to highlight), it's doing its job fantastically.

Of course, right now we don't have anything to connect to it via wireless. Which is a bit of a bugger. But it's sharing the Internet connection phenomenally well, and hopefully, Vickie's PC will run much smoother now that it's not handling ICS.

Fingers crossed, though, that with a few more things auctioned off, I might be able to swing a wireless bridge for das Xbox. Netgear has the WGE101, although I did spot a D-Link bridge at Hardly Normal Express today, I think it was the DWL-G810.

Oh hey, wait, I can see that look in your eyes, and I've got something to say in that regard, but I'll save it for my next post...
