I thought this was a rather good an informative review against the major three, even though many people overlook powerline as a networking solution. I rather enjoyed seeing Warcraft 3 installed on the computer.
Actually,I have never had issues with wireless until recently. I use the provided Bell 2Wire wireless unit and both my old Dell laptop and my netbook work flawlessly. My new Dell laptop with an a/b/g card seems to start dropping the signal after about an hour of use. Ironically, my netbook placed right next to it will continue on displaying full signal without any interruptions.
It could very well be that I have a faulty card, as it does drop out after about an hour. I never bothered troubleshooting it too much. Wireless is also a terrible security risk as well.... not that I really have much to hide but I still don't want people digging around in my photographs, etc.
On an bit of a rant here but for some reason my DD-WRT router decided to glitch and drop it's wireless security settings. Naturally I ended up having someone on my wireless. Before I completely turned my radio off and took my wireless down forever I managed to share their printer to my computer and leave them 9999 reasons why they shouldn't be on my wireless router...
The font I used had great coverage for the sheet of paper and was bolded. I bet it was 70% black ink per page, printed "landscape" :biggrin:
