Hello everyone, I am asking for some serious and pretty honest advice here, so hopefully you can help me out. The worst router i ever had was a linksys and it was a terrible product. I trashed it within a month of purchasing, and then went with a d-link after reading some reviews about it's range. To be totally honest, my d-link served reasonably well until we started putting a lot of wireless devices on it. Therer were some annoying blind spot issues, and besides adjusting the antennas a little bit there was nothing that could be done. Well, it's been a little over two years and I feel like our d-link has burned out. I'm left wondering if routers always burn out so fast. It seems that static buildup has damaged our unit and now I have to reset it very few hours. So, knowing all that, I have a few questions: 1. I have a large house 6,000 sq ft on two levels. I need something with a lot of range. Will the airport extreme work? 2. I have 9 wifi devices! Including a full blown home theatre system. How well does the APEx perform under full load? Does it manage network traffic well? I stream HD movies and do lots of heavy file transfers over the network. 3. Does it play nice with windows machines and vonage adapters? 4. Will it last longer than two years?? 5. I have heard something about extenders. How do those work? 6. Does using simultaneous 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands affect the performance of the router in regards to blind spots? 7.Also, the APEx does not have external antennas. What effect will this have? 8. Wall mountable? Yes? No? Do you recommend wall mounting? I know I just pushed a lot onto your plate, but u trust the people on this site. Thank you in advance for all your help!
