    Heeeeeey all!

    I just bought a d-link router last week, and well.....it sucks.....a lot.

    So I'm returning it, but I have a question since I'm very paranoid.

    I bought stuff onile since then and i just wanna make sure returning the router won't let the person who buys it again, find out my card number, numerous passwords and whatnot.

    I'm sure as long as I reset the router to defult settings, that will be good, but I get very paranoid.

    Thanks!!

    Unless it's a very unusual router, no, I don't think it caches any user information. Especially not if you reset it. Watcha getting as a replacement?

    Yeah, just reset it, and you should be fine. The Windows computers shouldn't have too much difficulty getting on an Apple router.

    I would say reset it as well but again I also don't think it stores any information. I can see though how one would think that it would be a repository for information. How bad would that be?! Seriously, now you have me thinking!!!!
