Just got back home after way too much time on the road. One of the problems I encountered in transit was inability to access my home system via VPN - or any other method, for that matter.
When I got back, I reset the router - unplug, wait fifteen seconds, replug - and all seems well. But this is getting to be a regular event - the router, I mean, not the road trip
. It's happening four (4)-five (5) times a month, seemingly on an upward curve
'Twould seem advantageous to replace the router, a LinkSys (Cisco) WRT-400n dual-band unit with both bands always active. Since the router is less than a year old, I'm not too confident of my router-picking abilities.
So I'm soliciting opinions on the various pieces of hardware on the market. I'd like to maintain the 2.4/5 G capability, if possible. Don't wanna spend too
big a bundle, but price won't be the
primary deciding factor. I'm on a cable modem, and I suspect there is dirty cable input from things that have shown on the TVs. I also may have dirty AC, but that'll soon be alleviated with another UPS. Oh, yeah, at least four (4) RJ45 connections, and wireless a must.
Any thoughts ... or experiences?
