It scares me when I see the masses of people exiting BigBox stores with WiFi gear, and listen to the store's "experts"
telling everyone that WiFi is the solution to all their problems. Some of these people appear to have problems
comprehending anything more complex than a light switch (and they may be vague on those). Expecting them to coordinate
with neighbors, or understand possible interference problems is totally unrealistic.
So the problems with WiFi can only get worse, and the industry's next "solution" will probably just aggravate things.
Copper is the way to go, I have run into extremely few situations where it was truly not possible to run a wire.
I now keep just one WiFi router, on a separate subnet, for visiting laptops, my Nook and Blackberry, and other transient
devices, I don't use WiFi for anything I can use copper wire for, certainly not for Myth.
