Doesn't reach our front room

Tom, ABT Electronics

The brick and mortar sales rep assured me there would be no problem using with my Windows 7 computer.

Easy Set Up; Looks Good; Needs to be Reset From Time to Time

David Enzel, Amazon
12 February 2009
  • Summary: The airport base station looks cool and was very easy to set up. It sends out a strong signal. The only downside is that from time to time it stops working and I need to unplug it and plug it back in again and then all is well. I have to do this once a week or once every two weeks.

PROS ) 802.11g (NATIVE) ) Native 802.11b support (part of the 802.11g spec) ) A throughput of 54mbps at most.
