The Joys of Wireless

I'd highly recommend getting a wireless router if you have broadband/multiple computers. They're dirt cheap at this point, particularly the older 802.11b standard which, depending on the speed of your broadband connection, is probably enough. And, if you're in a dense city you can probably find a coffee shop with an open hot spot somewhere near by so you can do the uber-geek thing.

Mine always had this little problem that certain websites would cause it to reset and drop the signal - a bit annoying. Fortunately I finally got around to doing the firmware upgrade, and problem is magically solved.

Just thought I'd share.
