Grandmas rejoice! ZyXEL has announced the X105N, a full-fledged 802.11n wireless router that the company touts as requiring “virtually no maintenance or support.” After an easy set up requiring ‘no technical background,’ the router offers 150MBps speeds and one button encryption. I, for one, applaud a company that markets a product like this, so Best Buy/Geek Squad can’t overcharge like scoundrels on installation fees.
The X105N is available now for $39.99.
