On average I get around a year out of my wireless routers before they go out on me. The Ethernet functions fine on them but my wireless devices (iPad, iPhone, psp, laptop) fail to connect to the routers or my connection keeps dropping. I bought a netgear N router last november and it's already getting to the point where I have to reset it daily in order for my wifi devices to connect to it. Is this normal? I've owned netgesr, linksys, and belkin routers and they all do the same. Is the airport extreme worth the price?
