May finally break down and get the new iPad.
So, I imagine I will now need a Router (to talk with the iPad).
Know next to nothing re Routers.
Looked at some at Best Buy, and have the following questions:
a. Years ago, many, I had a Router and hooked my PC thru it via a cable; not
wirelessly. Worked fine, and want to do it again this way, as no need for the PC to be wireless. I imagine it will be a much more "stable" connection if hardwired.
Would I use one of the 3 or 4 Ethernet Ports to do this ?
b. I see several Routers have a USB Port on the more expensive ones.
What would this be used for, possibly ?
c. Any consensus as to which brand is the most reliable these days, or perhaps more important which to stay away from ?
What to look for, make sure it has, etc. ? The 2 freq's used on some important ?
d. And for someone like me, which brand/model offers the truly easiest setup, configuring, etc. ? I remember for my old one many years ago, I had a devil of a time getting it going.
