06/24/2004: "Belkin WEB"
Well, it seems that the Belkin Wireless Ethernet Bridge is not as terrible I I imagined. I ran a ping test overnight, and with almost 30,000 pings to the wireless gateway, none have been dropped. However, the latency has occasionally spiked to over half a second, presumably because of retries. I have not yet correlated this with periods of high throughput, but that is my suspicion. Perhaps windows networking is simply more fragile than I had imagined. Still, there are few excused left to avoid wiring the house, even if this is working. I mean, Gigabit Ethernet dude. Yeah.
