Tried this last night. Setup seemd to go fine — followed the instructions to the letter — got the confirmation message. 4-bar signal all over the house, but no connection! Couldn't load a single page. Couldn't get email. Nada.Tried it 3 times with no luck. In fact it killed my whole network and I had to start from scratch with the setup util. <br><br>
Other than Airport Express, Apple just needs to get out of the wireless router business (or slash the price on them). A Belkin wireless router with four ethernet ports usually costs $20-30 after rebate and works with minimal configuration, and you can get 5-10 of them for the price of one Airport Base Station. Sheeesh.<br><br>
The cheapy Belkins and Linksys are useless in schools and other institutions. The cheapies don't have remote authentication, power over ethernet, WDS, USB Rendezvous printing, and a few others. These features are very useful, just not so much to the home user.<br><br><br>
Well, since I've had the 2 Apple base stations for almost 10 months...<br><br>The IT guy at my office is real familiar with this stuff, and I'm gonna ask him if he'll help me out. This stuff just makes my hair hurt. <br><br>
