Edit 2 is priceless. Pretty surprised he wasn't already running OpenWrt.
Whee, Netgear, you kind of suck.

So I have had a Netgear N600 (WNDR3700v2) for a while, and yesterday I made the mistake of upgrading its firmware. With all the router stuff in the news, I thought I should do it. Because newer is better, right?

The "upgrade" brought back the bad old days in the configuration setup interface, but hey, I remember those days, so I didn't mind too much.  It was prettier for a while, but I can take ugly when I look at that interface maybe once a year.

But then, several hours later, I start getting emails about my WiFi thermostats no longer phoning home. Unrelated? I don't think so (but see edit). 

And sadly, Netgear has removed the old firmware version that had the prettier configuration interface, and that used to actually work. Oops.

Are there any good routers that just work? And no, I'm not in the least interested in dicking around with custom firmware, part of the "just work" package is that the damn thing shouldn't need that.

Recommendations, people?

Edit: it seems that the thermostat problem wasn't in my network, and really was unrelated after all. So I guess I can live with the ugly configuration interface.

Edit2: Ok, switched to OpenWRT.

I loathe white backgrounds. It's getting very hard for me to use or recommend Nexus products these days. It boggles my mind why Google continues to transition every app they control to white backgrounds yet do not include a simple option to enable NIGHT MODE.
I'm not a big fan of white backgrounds. Anyone using kit Kat know if you can change appearance to black backgrounds....white is going to eat battery life...thanks?!!!!

Richard Jimmerson recently spoke to some folks at Virginia Tech about #IPv6. Today, we got these funny stickers in the mail from them. "Legacy IP Only: This product does not support the current generation of Internet Protocol, IPv6."

Please bring back the blue outline to posts when using j & k to scroll through feeds. It brings much greater focus to each post compared to the new method. Especially in three column mode.

In case there are people here that don't understand what I mean, try it. Use the j key to scroll down and you'll notice certain boxes still render a blue outline.
