I have a Linksys WRT400N router. What is my cheapest alternative/best to program my Apex wirelessly?

+1 I've been using the Trendnet 647 for about 6 months. Once you get it updated, it works flawlessly. You can download the new firmware (8/20/10) from here http://www.trendnet.com/asp/download_manager/list_subcategory.asp?SUBTYPE_ID=1351

I have a Linksys WRT610N Router and my APEX is connected through a Dlink DAP-1522 wireless bridge.

Not very good reviews on this item. Can anyone suggest anything else.


Thanks for input thus far.

I actually run 3 of these in my house (1 on each floor) and no problem. Been hooked up to my controller over a year now. You must install dd-wrt but it's very easy (15 minutes if you know what you are doing)

Not the cheapest, but I've been running this.

No complaints here. About as "plug and play" as it gets.

if you know what you are doingThis is a key point... DD-WRT is not for the casual user.

I'm a MAC guy and use an Apple Airport Express to connect to my net work. Not the cheapest way to go ($99) but works well. Also, you can connect to a USB printer and stream iTunes to your home entertainment system though the Airport Express.

Point taken but there are very good instructions out there and it's very straight forward. Quite frankly, I find setting up DD-WRT easier than programming the Aquacontroller.

Got the WET610N up and running and it talks to my router like they are old friends.

More details? My second MadCatz wireless gamer just crapped out on me and I think I may be done with them.(both that failed the same thing happened where I could no longer communicate with them with default or programmed IP even after holding reset, they just died)

I am guessing the Cisco Linksys WET610N he was buying using DD-WRT? Just a complicated set up. Is this the most stable trustworthy way to go after you get over the hurdle of set up?
