Some updates to “In search of a wireless router that doesn’t suck”:
- I mentioned the Apple Airport Extreme in the first paragraph. I appreciate the recommendations, but user reviews (and my own personal experience in an office full of them) seem to indicate a pretty average failure rate compared to every $40 router out there.
- I know about the Linksys WRT54GL, the version of the popular WRT54G capable of being flashed with third-party firmwares such as DD-WRT. I had one of these a while ago, and while it did have plenty of great additional features, it didn’t help the unreliable hardware at all — it overheated and crashed just as frequently as the stock firmware.
