I replaced the Linksys AP (WEP11) with a Belkin AP today. it’s 802.11G and backward compatible too. So I’ve got a 54mbps wireless network now.
It’s mush more stable, I’ve no idea why the Linksys just died it’s been in constant use for 3 nearly 4 years, but I guess that length of service isn’t bad.
When I bought it you couldn’t get Wireless and a modem/router in one box like you can now. So I still have too boxes which means it’s easier to fix a single separate box should anything break.
