DLink WBR-2310 Router

Broadband being no more fancy stuff, the next gadget to have at home is a WLAN Router. With a WLAN router, you can connect multiple PCs and Laptops to share the broadband connection. Secondly you are no more wired. You can roam freely within the router range and stay connected.

When I went for a WLAN router hunt, I ended up with DLink WBR2310 RangeBooster G Router.

  • Supports both IEEE 802.11g and IEEE 802.11b standard
  • Supports 64/128-bit WEP and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK, WPA-EAP) for security of your network
  • + rest all are standard features

Though in India we do not use 802.11g standard, the rangebooster should help (I guess). On the looks, the router is very sleek and aesthetic in design (in comparison to Linksys).

Setting up this router is like a breeze. First run the setup CD and follow the graphical illustrations. In my case I had a ADSL modem/router ahead of this router. So the default IP's didn't work. Had to find out which IP got assigned to this router. Rest all is like a cake-walk.
