So I had a linksys wireless router that I use to share internet between my laptop and megans ibook, its an older 802.11b job a befw11s4 or something like that. So Megan got a new ibook today, yeah I know the new intel mac’s ones are coming out but thats not for a year and the current 800mhz thing is slow and was the old OS and had a 12 inch screen with a poor viewing angle. So we got a new one, nothing insanely fancy but its a 1.3ghz with 786meg of ram, and to make a long story short it broke the router.
So you connect to the router and about a minute latter internet stops working, reboot the router and sometimes the cable modem too and things work again. Very odd stuff, so I just went out and got a new one, one of those wrt54g models that run linux. Once I ignored there setup program that didn’t work right and just used the web interface everything was good. I now have working wireless, and its even g on the ibook, of course I somehow managed to get a new laptop with only built in b.
