I’ve been running DD-WRT on the Linksys WRT54G for about 6 years with no issues. But Amazon had the Linksys WRT1200AC on sale so I decided to upgrade to the latest model — have to say the WRT1200 is a whole lot faster than the WRT54G. As you can see in the video, the install process is also amazingly quick and you’ll be up and running in no time!

R.I.P. – Windows Media Center Extenders [WTF?]

Linksys DMA 2100 Windows Media Extender

Oh the shock and awe… what is happening to my world?  Seems like I’m picking all the wrong technology lately.  First HD-DVD, now Windows Media Center Extenders.   Apparently, everyone (Linksys, HP, Niveus, D-LINK, Samsung) that makes an extender is dropping their product line.  That leaves loud, noisy XBOX 360’s to connect to our Media Center’s remotely.  Good thing I stocked up on these when they were down to $50.   

Does this mean CE devices (televisions and devices) will come standard with this technology or is MSFT killing this platform — please say it isn’t so!!!!  As Patrick Norton from Tekzilla would say, “I’m going to go weep softly in a corner now.”

Engadget – Linksys discontinues Media Center Extenders, hardly anyone notices
