    Anyone wireless at home?

    I set this up for my wife, so she could work in bed...seriously...and you can just stop thinking up jokes about that right now, thank you.

    Anyway, I bought a cheap netgear wireless router. Setting it up was pretty easy- I was surprised.

    There is a lot of wasted time in my future, I think.

    I set one up because I live in a condo and it would've been a big hassle to run a line back to the room where I set up my computer. It's a great thing.

    I had a Netgear router too, but it got fried in the big blackout (even though it was in a surge protector. Got frustrated w/their outsourced "customer service" ... trashed it and bought a Dell.

    I do, I've got a Linksys 802.11g set up. Once you go wireless, you'll never go back.

    Been wireless for a couple of years now. Can't beat it.

    Had Microsoft 11b, recently upgraded to Belkin 54g.

    By the way I got the Belkin Free after rebate at Staples.com. Look to fatwallet.com for deals like this.

    I put in a wireless hub at work in '97 and loved it so much there that I got one at home in '99. I now have 2 hubs in distant parts of the house to provide 100% coverage.

    I have a Linksys system at home here.

    Nothing beats a 80 degree Saturday, relaxing w/ a beer and sitting on the porch doing a little web browsing.

    I agree. But it's sometimes a real hassle lugging the desktop out there.

    Re: Anyone wireless at home?

    At my house I'm usually wired! Oh...we're talking about computers?

    I have 3 computers in the house. If I brought a laptop into this house, my wife would show me where to keep it (and it wouldn't be pretty).

    But I am wied with one computer (didn't see the sense in removing it), and finally went wireless with other, thanks to some great help on here from some resident experts.

    I went Linksys.

    But I still haven't figured out how to network my printer on this computer with the wireless one in my son's room. I've been in the Network Setup Wizard, but I'm scared to death I'll screw something else up trying to configure it.

    I'm alot better with chainsaws.
