Being retired, I have a lot of time to research suppliers and products\non the net. I will give away my secret of TWO great suppliers at the end\nof this message for those who don't like to read. \n\nIn months of searching for wifi radios and other devices I have\nconcluded that 99% of suppliers/vendors on the net would not survive in\nthe brick and mortar world, because their service/attitude/products\nSTINK, imo. \n\nThe average consumer has to be very careful when giving out credit card\nnumbers and ordering from these online vendors who often: \n\na) charge ridiculous high restocking and other fees to guarantee they\nmake a profit regardless of whether or not they lie about their\nproducts, market junk products, offer no support, are rude and\nunprofessional,etc. etc. \n\nb) are outright fraud operators\n\nc) think because their profit margin is low they can pretend they are\nthe source of their wifi equipment, when, in fact, the only thing they\nhave done is make a deal with some chinese outfit that sells the same\nstuff much cheaper directly. \n\nOne jerk operator that recently comes to mind is an outfit operating on\nebay with a web page that, like many, tries to make it look like they\nare a big company when it is just some jerk and a few friends who put up\na web page operating out of a shitwater Mexican border town of Nogales,\nAZ. With the initals D.A. you can figure out who it is, not going to\ngive them any free advertising here. The idiot who runs this outfit,\ntook my credit card number and then did nothing, did not send the\nproduct. They had a negative record with the AZ Better Business Bureau\nuntil they paid them off by joining and suddenly overnight their record\nwent to A+. Shows what a bogus outfit the Southern AZ BBB is, which also\nrefuses to take complaints unless they can publish your personal\ninformation to a url link. This happened after they agreed to the order\nby phone and the terms. Also be careful of ebay positive reviews, they\noften do not reflect the true nature of a company. When you phone them\nthey laugh at you in the background and lie about what they are going to\ndo. Very unprofessional outfit, avoid them. \n\nNow if you want TWO REALLY GOOD SERVICE WIFI suppliers with superior web\npages, superior service and competitive prices, here are the only two I\ncan recommend after a couple years of researching all these mostly shit\noutfits. I have no profit motive here, nor am I in any business related\nto marketing wifi equipment, just reporting my personal experiences.\n\nNETGATE.COM- great service from Bill who answers his email and supplies\nvery good products. Excellent webpage that gives all the information you\nneed, good prices. Only disadvantage is they are in Hawaii, so deliver\nmight take a little more time, but not bad at all. Bought a pcmcia card\nfrom them that is very powerful and still going strong 3 years later.\nServiced product even after it was purchased. Guarantees his products. \n\nROKLAND.COM- great service from Jason a small operator with a very good\nweb page who ALSO answers his email and give fast delivery of great\nproducts. In Florida. Wide selection of products at good prices. Bought\na usb wifi radio, strongest I have seen yet at a good price. Service is\ngood even after he has your money. NICE web page easy to navigate, no\nBS. Supplies test reports on his products. Guarantees his products. \n\nNewegg.com- Big company, with fairly good service, also reasonable\ncustomer support, but so big they are sometimes difficult to communicate\nwith. Guarantees some, but not all of it's products.
