When Technological Worlds Collide

Our old router died last week. And since we definitely need wireless in our house, we trekked over to Best Buy on Saturday to buy a new one. The sales dude there convinced us to buy an Airport router (Apple), which worked awesome for my Mac laptop. Plus I could plug in the printer and print wirelessly from my Mac. Awesome!

Unfortunately, we also run three Dells at home–a desktop and two laptops. And alas, our desktop isn’t wireless (doh!). And then our other two Dell laptops couldn’t pick up the wireless signal. :gah: Which sadly meant the Airport router had to go back to Best Buy and we had to buy another LInksys router.

Which works fine, except there’s no plugin for the printer. So no wireless printing for me. 😥

Why isn’t this ever easy?
