View Full Version : Recommend a wireless access point

I have a Squeezebox on order to be delivered in a couple of days. Is
there a good wireless access point that anyone can recommend? Or for that
matter, any that I should avoid due to compatiblity problems?

I don't need routing in the device since I already have a ZyWALL firewall
behind my cable router, so I'd prefer a simple AP/bridge. I'd like to get
an 802.11g capable device for possible future use with laptops.

I'm partial to ZyXEL and D-Link products, having had good luck with both
on a variety of small business and home networks. Is anyone using the
D-Link or DWL-700AP or the DWL-2100AP?

Thanks.

I've been using the Netgear WGE101 bridge (802.11g) with good results.

JJ,

I'm using a 3Com 3CRWE554G72 with my Squeezebox.

I'm using .flac and streaming raw PMC format and I don't have any
problem with dropouts - I don't know what everyone else is complaining
about :)

Try the Linksys WRT54G. It runs Linux, and there is lots of hacked
firmware out for it to do all sorts of stuff only found on more
expensive kit.

I've had all sorts of problems with USR devices. The Netgear devices work
best for me.
