is the tradein a gimmick? as in srp already marked up to cover the "trade-in"
Don't think so. When it was first launched, the SRP was even higher, I think.

Dual Band Qns

Currently using Dlink 655.

If I upgraded to a dual band router, do I need to change to a corrosponding dual band adapter

or the current adapter is good enough ?

if you change to a dual band router, it makes sense that your adaptor is also dual band.

no point buying dual band router when you are still connecting to its 2.4ghz

that said, most of the newer laptops comes with dual band adaptor. eg intel 4965, 5300 and etc

Hi,
also just bought it today but I fail to set it up. When I plug in the power cord 5G and power led light up blink blink for a while and then all is off. Also none of ther LAN port LEDs light up. I have tried with all my devices incl. modem but I can't access it, nor via switch nor via direct connection to my MAC (which seems not well supported, utilities is only for windows). I also tried different cables like included one and cat5.

Anyone can give me a hint ?

Thanks.

Connect your MAC to one of the LAN ports and launch your Safari browser then type in http://192.168.1.1 (or look at the Quick Setup Guide for anything that starts with http://192.168.x.x) See if it would prompt you for username & password for the configuration/setup page.

It could either be the power adaptor that is not working, or the modem. If you bought it locally, you should go back to the shop and ask if they can do a one-for-one exchange.

Yeah don't do it if you're a risk averse kind of fella.

Personally I like doing my shopping with my fingers and the convenience of having it delivered to my doorstep far outweighs the risk of DOA. At most just buy another one
