useful linkage bloggeration has all the comparison site links… while woot’s fiddling around with things, WE’re waiting and waiting… man, i wish i had that kind of power over people… anyways… does this thing come in pink?
Tempting. But does anyone know if they work with xp 64bit ?
Dunno why it wouldn’t, that is like asking if the Internet would work with xp 64bit.
Now I wish I hadn’t just spent 600 bucks today. This would be VERY handy for me right about now.
Uhh… they work with anything that has a functional Ethernet card.
This is better than a wireless card how?
Are these any good? hmmm. Netgear isn’t a brand i trust. gud night!
so… this thing literally plugs into a wall, and becomes a wireless access point? am i missing some part of running cables to it, or does it seriously just work completely stand-alone, just plugged into a wall?
This is how I hook up to the web with my Mac mini. It works great
This doesn’t look bad… but I doubt it will work from building to building through our generators here in Iraq…
The router is downstairs.
One of the desktops is upstairs in an office. The signal there never gets ‘GREAT’ … it is always only ‘GOOD’.
Will this make it a stronger signal?
They have nothing to do with the version Windows (or Linux or Mac even) you’re using – they sit on the ethernet network.
Yeah… great price… 20 bucks shipped on Ebay. Completed auctions. Save it.
I wonder if it would work if I plugged one in the house and the other in my workshop out behind the house???
This may be nice to plug in outside this summer if I’m doing work out on the patio.
