If you're in the market for a router, you'd be best to check out Designtechinca's
look at the Nexlands
ISB Soho Personal Router. It looks cool too! =)
I use AT&T cable modem service. I used to have a static IP but after
the fiasco a few months ago with @home, AT&T took over and moved me to DHCP.
DHCP is a lot easier to setup then a static IP configuration. But from my past
experiences with routers, the router always requires some type of setup. Not
the Soho. As soon as I had my machines and cable modem hooked up, I was instantly
connected to the net without ANY configuration whatsoever. None. I was overjoyed
to say the least.
