    I recently bought a Belkin Wireless router ($154) and have been pretty happy with its performance. Easy to install and configure and it broadcasts a fairly decent range (could be better, could be worse). Just my two cents. Happy networking :D

    $154 for a Belkin Router? :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I just picked up the D-Link DI-614+ wireless router for $15 after rebates, a little more in the ballpark. :) $154 seems a mite in the expensive side, especally for a company that just repackages things...

    $15 after rebates huh?.... maybe I need to take some shopping advice for you :) Well the $154 did also include a Belkin wireless card. Did you buy on the net?

    Yep, my $15 special was mail-order from Office Depot. It started out at $80, and with a $15 coupon and $50 in rebates, it ended up being $15, free shipping. :D As far as wireless PCMCIA cards, I have several of those that I paid less than $10 for, ditto a couple of wireless USB adapters. :)

    Thanks johnwill :D Now I kinda feel like I've been ripped off. :mad: Oh well, should have shopped around I guess. Guess its a good idea to ask the members here for some info before making a purchase like that. Will keep that in mind for next time. Happy Networking! :D

    With all the rebates that have been offered recently, there's no reason to pay anything close to full price for computer gear. Every machine here, seven of them, has a high speed CD-RW drive, lots of memory, and big hard disks. They were all purchased for pennies on the dollar over the going prices. :D
