Re: 5660 upgrade notes! Opinions please!!
Regarding Hexedit... I noticed it came up in "insert" mode too but I was watching my image as I edited it and picked up on it right away. What I did was highlight the whole word and retype and that did the job fine. Hexedit was a freebie and there are many out there. No it's not for the timid, but it can get the job done and that in itself is a good thing.
The 233 is an amazing chip and I do think it's a good upgrade to our RS232 design we all share. You no longer need the PC supply and that in iteslf is worth it.
The freed 5260 as a router... I can appreciate how some may find it a dandy router. I personally need port forwarding and also find moving about the 5660 GUI less than friendly. I would take a Linksys router over it any day myself, but that's just my opinion after playing with both. I feel I "know my stuff" fairly well, but still prefer less pain when setting up a router. Doc... my question to you would be:
have you spent any time with a Linksys router? Keep in mind that 3 years experience with any device is bound to make you confortable with it. My opinion is based on how easy it is to setup out of the box and new to the user. I still think the Linksys is better for the novice,,, which is the vast majority of users out there.
