My old router is dead. 2 years of service. it was a Belkin F5D7230 Wireless G router. That must explain my connection woes this last week.
I got myself a D-Link DI-524 802.11g router.
The old belkin had a windows-only wizard for installing the router easily. I was shocked when I check the box for the new router. the second bullet in the System Requirements section reads:
- Computers with Windows, Mac or (GNU/) Linux Based Operating Systesm with Installed Ethernet Adapter.
The web wizard for the D-Link router made it a breeze to install. I feel included now… 😀
