802.11b is a thing of the past. Sorry, no woot
Note: This post contains pricing information for future reference because it is generally not available elsewhere once the next Woot has been offered.
Linksys 802.11b Wireless Networking Bundle
$39.99 + $5 shipping
2 Linksys WPC11 PCMCIA Adaptor
1 Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless AP + Cable/DSLRouter
1 Linksys WUSB11 Wireless USB Adapter
hmmm mabye if they increased the speed of 802.11b routers from 54kbs
nice bundle! nice deal!
TOO BAD I HAVE PRE-N
looks like a good deal but I want to upgrade to “G”
OK, so maybe 80.211b is not “that slow” for most uses, but is this considered an antique by today’s standards?
Who uses b anymore? Oh yea, I do.
Some of those don’t include all that woot is
nice deal for some older, but still very usuable products.
Does this work with an ipod?
Note that the Froogle link above does not include as many components.
802.11b, no thanks. 2.4 Mhz, no thanks. Referb, not a problem, I am not buying outdated hardware.
I think Fred Flinstone still uses 802.11b
have to agree, now if it were G…
Was in the middle of buying - then saw the ‘b’ - yikes - close call!
For a simple home network where there is not much distance involved, this is a great deal
For anyone considering wireless networking, this is ONE HELL of a deal!!!
It is not as fast as the more prolific 802.11g, but is plenty fast and you will likely never need the speeds of 802.11g unless transferring HUGE files between computers in the home network frequently.
If I did not already have a 5 station wireless network at home, I would be all over this like stink on (well you know).
Great deal though no go for me tech to old.
