Network Upgrades

I finally ended my 3-year love affair with the Linksys WRT54G (currently running DD-WRT firmware), and replaced my last unit tonight with the new Apple Airport Extreme.

I’d already replaced one of my WRT54Gs (the one acting as a wireless-to-wired bridge in my middle bedroom that acts as a “projects lab”) with an Airport Express a couple of weeks ago.

So, now my entire network is based around Apple products. So far, it works great – the only stumbling block was a bit of manual configuration for the WDS setup that lets me bridge two wired networks with the wireless connection.

I don’t have any 802.11n devices yet, but plan on picking up another Extreme in a couple of months to replace the existing Express.
