Belkin extender model #: F9K1122V1
Linskys model #: E2500-NP & it is working just fine
the "instructions" for the extender were @ //Belkin.range & the wanted to know what version of "windows" I was running! (That, by the way; was the FIRST "step") Apple does not have windows! (there were no other options!)
I have a "laptop" that has windows but it "isn't on the internet" because it doesn't work very well! (I only use it as a word processor) (expensive typewriter)! :)
