    i'm not very wired in. i just need a router to get wifi for my kindle and i'd like to be able to connect the computer to the tv (not sure if these things do this). not sure what else i could do with it. i might actually enter the 2000s and get a smart phone too. not sure if that needs a router. :dontknow:

    anyway, i was wondering if this is as good a buy as it sounds?


    would something simpler be better?
    i have the technical skills of a drunken chimp so i'd rather get something simpler if this would confuse me and cause me to start another thread trying to figure out how to use the freaking thing.

    any input would be appreciated. amazon has so many of these things, i'm not quite sure what the difference is between a $40 unit and a $150 one. except for wifi speed.

    i had to do stuff and didn't get to nap today so i need to pass out now.
    it's a tough life.

    My Netgear gave me nothing but problems. Switched to an Asus and haven't had to reset my router once.

    You must spread reputation to at least 20 other user(s) before you can give reputation to Splash again.

    Depends on the size of your place. We had one similar, and the upstairs back bedroom multimedia player had lots of pauses to buffer during Netflix streaming.
