Do you know what we mean by "1/4 port wireless router"?


This afternoon I met someone who wanted to recommend Option 2 to a friend but didn't because they would only be able to connect a single computer via the router.
What do you think?
Answer quickly and honestly - I'm interested in your gut reaction
Newcomers and old hands alike are welcome! :-)

Yep, but it's so much nicer not to have another power supply plugged in the wall.
Is there much of a cost difference between single and 4-port routers anymore?

As the 1 port router actually allows 2 wired connections Ethernet & USB, none of the answers are correct. Tongue

Good spot Peter - you deserve bonus points :-)
The results are conclusive on this forum which shows that you're a clued-up group of people.
We'll try the same poll on the member centre next to see if the results are the same.
Thanks for voting everyone!
