Netgear N900 Wireless router install

Kathee and I installed our new Netgear N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router this morning.

We replaced a first generation Apple AirPort Extreme that I would guess was 4 ½ years old. We replaced it because it was running very hot and because we have had a very difficult time consistently printing with our HP Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer.

I have some final tuning but the router itself was a very easy setup.

What's working and not:
  • We have three wireless networks: a 2.4GHz that is password protected, a 5GHz that is password protected, and a guest network that is isolated and open
  • Kathee rearranged the devices and the cables in the den
  • The NetGear router has a nice web interface that does not require a CD for set up
  • We cannot get the printer to printer wirelessly but we had that issue before
  • The printer works flawlessly connected to the router
  • I had to reset the Pogoplug Classic (connected to a 500 gig drive). The Chumby had to be connected wirelessly with the new password.
  • We use OpenDNS.com and the settings for that carried over to the new router (I'm not sure why that happend but I am not complaining).
