Spending the weekend in Singapore and just went over to Funan Centre today to check out the price of the WiFi routers and you won’t believe it… the Linksys Wireless B with 4 port router is going for S$105 each! I’ve got 2 with me now, and I hope I didn’t buy all the stock because there was just 2 on the shelf.
Ok, they’re not both for me, but at that price, I’m thinking of putting up a second one at home with a different 802.11b channels so I can choose between 2 signals and 2 channels.
As of today, I dont get good signals once I have 2 walls between the computer and the Access Point.
Other prices are… Linksys Wireless G 4 port router going for S$148. The 802.11g Access Point is going for S$160+. And I’ve just heard from the shop guys that if you want to use an Access Point to repeat the signal you’ll have to hook up a Cat5 cable between your router and your AP! That’s crazy! I was under the impression that AP can just amplify the received signal (like repeaters in the Telecom world).
