     Also, there are other alternatives to the AirPort (which is closer
to $299 than $399).  One is the Buffalo AirStation (around $280-$340,
depending on options -- see  Other, cheaper,

     I've got an AirStation, and it's not bad.  Like most access points,
it has only 40-bit encryption, though.  It's configurable via a web
