To hear Mr. Win98 say that is funny, indeed.  :0240  :poke  :heartkiss

But - don't laugh - if I had not had an old D-Link router like this one, I would have bought this for my MIL. She has one desktop PC and no need for wireless until now. The modem from her ISP does not do wireless. We gave her a Nook Simple Touch for her birthday and it can use wireless to connect to B&N. So I took my old D-Link there and set it up with WEP for her, about a week before Christmas. Hey... I think I know what to do with my old HP laptop now!  :up LOL

They work. In fact I've got one of them in my spare pile @ home. It got retired when I moved up to N about 3 years ago.  802.11g is still widely utilized and supported, but considerably slower than 802.11n.

I only have 1.5MBPS incoming.

Suze-

I said that because every time I look at something, someone tells me how antiquated it is.
