    Yeah, I know you should be able to make it work, but if its somebody else's hotspot, good luck with that.

    Don't take my word for it: (3,350,000 results)

For the most part, networking is networking.

    OTOH, the Apple routers do work well, altho using the Time Machine feature with non-Apple computers can be challenging. The thing I don't like about them is that the configuration you can do is pretty limited, nothing like the other routers. And the price...

    I like my Airport Extreme. Ours has handled three computers, Netflix and a couple of phones/iPods simultaneously without complaining. If I have my iPod with me when walking home, it picks up the router over a block away.

    I was thinking about it till the March ON came today with the largest oil thread in ON history.

    Next thing you know it will be ATGATT or ??????

    I sure like the specs on the Airport Extreme. Not the price so much.
    Ride Well
