Great: the day after I order an 802.11b access point for home, I find out everyone was recommending one that wasn't even included in the review I read. For once, I didn't do my homework (ask someone around my lab how many hours I spent picking out headphones…) and I got stuck with an inferior product. I bought the ZoomAir IG-4165 for $160 when I could have bought the more capable, easier-to-use SMC for $135. Oh well.

Update: seems both access points have the same internals, made by AMIT, so I just spent a bit too much money and missed out on two Ethernet ports. If the extremely similar administration Web page layouts and manuals were not a dead giveaway, there's an '@M!T' signature in the Zoom firmware right before the file listing that confirms it.
