Some (Most??) of the sales people at Best Buy don’t know an egg from a chicken. I was at Best Buy recently looking for a CAT5 crossover cable. I couldn’t find a single sales person who even knew what it was. Since I already had a spool of CAT5 cable, a bag of RJ-45 connectors and a good crimp tool, I gave up, came home and made my own.

Subject: [CRTech] inexpensive but reliable Internet router - does it exist?
I guess I may be inviting a calling out of brand loyalties here, but is there a particular router make and model that you rely on? I'd like it to have at least 3 or 4 LAN ports built in too, if possible.
Or shall I trust the judgement of the salesperson at Best Buy?
