I ended up choosing the Synology DS411j (see because of the reasons you mention, Al, but also because it's a plug-and-play solution. I'm happy fiddling with tech but I'm not a guru. I wanted something I could plonk on my desk and start using quickly without a lot of hassle. This thing can do RAID, is super-quiet, is fast as lightning, and comes preconfigured with some really nice features, such as OSX Time Machine compatibility out of the box...which is important in our house. ;-) Other nice features are the built-in media server, download station, VPN, and even a security camera control station, if you want it. Pretty sweet suite (ha ha). I guess we'll see if it stands the test of time but I'm pretty pleased with it so far!

Mike, I'm sorry you're having these issues. I reached the end of my tether with Linksys and dumped them entirely from my network. I replaced the print server with a D-Link unit that was super-easy to set up. See this post for more info:

Mario: Are you asking how to configure two printers on the same print server? If so, I don't have any knowledge on that topic -- sorry!
Glad it worked out for you, Markus!
Oh, I'm sure it will. And hopefully experiments like this will help!

Haig, that's a great idea! I just updated the post above to include my GV number, so others can leave messages that will hopefully baffle the transcription service with amusing outcomes. "Did with crickets" indeed!

@LW: *sigh* You cannot diminish my admiration of the Cheese with misplaced criticisms and petty squabbles about timing. Quality takes time to percolate. Not that I've ever noticed any undue slowness anyway...
