Anything that’s wireless doesn’t work.
But there’s degrees of not-working-ness. I’ve had wireless keyboards that drops one in every five keystrokes even though the receiver is only a meter away, and I have keyboards that drop only one in twenty keystrokes over a range of ten meters.
But the most problematic wireless gear is wifi. I had a Netgear Access Point, then a … er, I forget, and then a Cisco one, and they all sucked. I mean, really. None of them could give reliable networking over ten meters through a couple of walls. I ended up with the Cisco two meters away, and I still lost teh webs sometimes.
And then I got this Asus RT-AC68U thing.
By Emacs! What a difference!
I’ve had it for a month now, and my laptop hasn’t lost connection once! And the throughput! And latency! It’s unimaginable! It’s almost like having a wired connection from twenty years ago! It’s fantastic!
I can even sit on the balcony and work! I should use more sunblock! It’s really hot in Oslo this week!
The Eyefi card I’ve got in my camera still can’t get any connection unless it’s less than a meter from the access point. That kinda sucks.
But a huge numbers of thumbs up for the Asus RT-AC68U. It’s the best wireless router in the history of wireless routers.
