Replaced the Foscam Router

It seems to have become unreliable, occasionally dropping to data rates that the Roku did not like.  I bought a Dlink that supported A and C protocols and gigabit wired connections.  While both our new cell phones support the new speeds (472 MB) the Roku does not, nor does the 2000s laptop I use for the CNC mill, but I no longer need a wireless repeater at the far end of the house for it. Of course, my ISP data rate is only 18 Mbps, so this only matters for backups and file transfers over our internal LAN.

There are however AC USB adapters.  And cheap.
