Was looking to get a couple for home to replace the ageing 802.11b kit I currently have, thinking they must be quite cheap now, but I'm sort of surprised by their price - So as I'm a dealer, a quick look at the Draytek catalogue shows the RRP of their AP-700 at £69+VAT, so I thought other makes would be much cheaper - but they're not!
A quick look at broadband buyer shows prices rather high for simple access points, and stupidly high for "business grade" ones. It would probably be cheaper to get an ADSL router with built-in Wi-Fi and just turn off the router bits.
But I guess that's consumerism for you - everyone wants the "all in one" box, so individual components actually start to cost more.
So I'll probably stick to the Draytek ones - at the trade price, they're cheaper than most of the others I've seen so-far... (Buffalo being the exception, but not sure if they're really much good!)
Ho hum. Gordon
