Life seems to be an infinite loop of "Code-Compile-test" these days,

Onslaught of work glued me to my IDE all the time,
still managed to get some breaks, worth mentioning ones are New Year celebrations, Australian Open Tennis, Australia Day Celebrations(which coincidentally falls on same day as Indian Republic day),

Recently we got "Broad"band @ /home, a 512 Kbps ADSL PPP over ATM connection (with a USB modem),
I am fully operational from home, and the obvious next move is to be "On Air",

We have three Centrino laptops & a desktop which wish to surf the air waves.....
the search for a good "WiFi" router is on, currently I am exploring the options available to find out the one which suits my needs,

If you are already "On Air", your $0.02 are most welcome....
