"Virtually idiot-proof"4.5 starson by solitare_pax
Pros: Compact, simple to use, unobtrusive
Cons: No enclosed cord
Summary: It works.
I have dealt with three different wireless routers over the years - a D-Link type router/hub combo that fried after a year of use, a Linksys dedicated wireless router which was returned because it was defective (and my brother who recommended it later had his die on him) and the Apple AirPort Express.
Very small, very compact and versatile. The one at home has worked nearly flawlessly, and when there is a big (after a power outage say) you just unplug the thing, wait a moment, and plug it back in. After a moment or two, the lone light switches from amber to green and you are ready to go again.
The one I installed at the office worked equally well with PC notebooks and Mac Laptops, so there are no cross-compatibility issues to worry about.
I should note for the tech folk that the home line is a standard cable connection - while the office line I dealt with was one-quarter of a T1 line, which is a different animal. It took a little modification to the protocols, but we got it working fine for internet purposes.
One it's set up - that's pretty much it.
