  • A wireless router is a device that performs the functions of a router but also includes the functions of a wireless access point. It is commonly used to allow access to the Internet or a computer network without the need for a cabled connection.
  • A networking device that is a combination of an access point and a router.  These devices are usually used in private homes where client PCs can be anywhere in the house (and thus use WiFi to connect), and the network is a broadband connection provided by an ISP.
  • Wireless routers are actually routers with Ethernet plus wireless access points so that they have both wired and/or wireless at the same time.
  • A large piece of equipment installed for use
  • The action or process of installing someone or something, or of being installed
  • facility: a building or place that provides a particular service or is used for a particular industry; "the assembly plant is an enormous facility"
  • initiation: a formal entry into an organization or position or office; "his initiation into the club"; "he was ordered to report for induction into the army"; "he gave a speech as part of his installation into the hall of fame"
  • A thing installed, in particular
  • the act of installing something (as equipment); "the telephone installation took only a few minutes"

A Tale of Two Diskies, or Damn You Western Digital!
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... 1TB drives are dirt cheap, but some are a PITA. Western digital has a long history of successful innovation, with things like the IDE interface, large caches, 10,000 rpm drives. Some of their wackier notions in the past have been custom formatting schemes, and they've done it again. In an effort to eke a bit more capacity and speed out of their newest drives, they've adopted a new "Advanced Format" scheme that doesn't *quite* work with network attached storage controllers like "Yorick", my D-Link DNS-323. It's broken. They don't SAY it won't work properly, and even imply right on the drive it will work in Linux. It works in Windows. It works with Macs. But it doesn't work in a D-Link DNS-323. D-Link is pissed. So am I. The drive is technically not faulty, and its package is opened, so Tiger Direct wants their 15% pound of flesh to restock it (plus they are all the bloody way across the city). So I ripped open a 1TB USB backup disk I have and found a genuine[-looking :-) ] Seagate in there, so I swapped them. The Seagate is happy in my DNS-323, and the WD works fine in the USB enclosure. Happy now. But still pissed at Western Digital.

This is (a blurry photo of) the 802.11 G D-Link router that was included free with Fios. I was pleased to see no Verizon branding on the router itself, nor in the admin interface. It does appear to run a custom firmware, though, because when I tried to update to the latest from D-Link, it rejected the firmware image, and told me to get the latest one from Verizon. Fios uses PPPOE (Point to Point Prootocol Over Ethernet) for authentication, which used to require software on your computer to log in, but most every router now supports PPPOE. I tried both the D-Link router and my Microsoft MN-700 router, and both were able to connect via PPPOE with no problem. The computers on the network, both wired and wireless, just see an always-on internet connection.
