A second look at MSI Wind

Tuesday, October 21, 2008 by Dave Winer.

A picture named router.jpgSince today is a day of second looks, I've decided to hold on to the MSI Wind for a few more days. I have 30 days to return it, after all, so no hurry -- I guess. Permalink to this paragraph

The incompatibility is definitely with the Airport Extreme. After reporting that, I've gotten lots of clues from people here and on Twitter that indicate that there are serious compatibility issues with that router, I've even reported on one before with my Nokia N800 handheld computer (which I never managed to get working with the Apple router). Permalink to this paragraph

So, I'm willing to try another 802.11N router, even though I gotta wonder why people who make WLAN adapters don't debug their issues with Apple's (imho very popular and well-designed) router.  Permalink to this paragraph

I really like DLink USB hubs, do they make good routers too?  Permalink to this paragraph

BTW, I did install the new drivers from the MSI site. I have the "RT2700E" hardware. Permalink to this paragraph
