    top to bottom

    1. DIR-655 wireless Xtreme N Router
    2. EZXS88W 100mbps 8-port switch (replacing with 16-port)
    3. TEG-S80TXE 1000mbps 8-port switch
    4. Cable Modem 43mbps down max.

    Remove all 7x Netgear switches FS 100 and GS 1000 just crap. I had the Linksys 8-port from prior usage. I am getting 16-port and connect everything directly into it that is not a Gig. That means all Wireless Access Points 3x, 7x Wired Network Media Players and 1x Wired Print Server comes out to be 11 ports for now for 100mbps side. Also most finish re-wiring the enough house. Gig nodes are completed. So far gone are the downgrade issues, Network Stream Media has issues where FF/RR and power off would loop. That problem is gone. Now everything runs smooth, but a lot of wires.

    Wireless B/G, slow, WEP 128.
    Great distance from the router, just a laggy connection.

    I bought a Belkin N1 from CC on sale around Turkey Day. $62?

    My brother said get an N1 despite my laptop being "g".

    He said it will pay off later when I get a NEW laptop. (He hates eMachines!)

    I use a DIR-655 D-Link as a wireless access point on my network so I can turn it on and off without shutting down the lan network. I use WAP AES encryption.

    N is going to be standard in Sept 2009, but I find that Belkin N+ is very stable with N than DIR-655.
