Aiport's Goose is Cooked

[ #8629 ]

So it seems that the first generation Apple Airports like mine overheat and cook their power conditioning circuitry.

So early last week I started noticing that my connection kept dropping. By Friday it was up for 5 seconds, restarting for 15, up for another 5 and so on. And now I've got red LEDs instead of amber and green.

Now I'm forced to use my only directly networked computer, a Mac 9600 running 8.6.

I am used to carrying my laptop around the house, noodling in front of the tv, the kitchen or the dining room. Alas, the desk I have the 9600 on is barely big enough to hold the monitor and a SCSI drive, so I can't easily use its network cable for the laptop.

Linksys is in my future.

  • I phoned up apple support, told them the serial number and got a free replacement. I was very pleased with their prompt response.

    • Really? What I read on the net lead me to believe that it was too late to do that.

      But I'll give it a try.

      Meanwhile, the Linksys WAP is humming along.
      • I did mine about 4 or 5 months ago. I wouldn't think that they'd rescind an offer like that; there can't be that many of the units affected left out there.
