Setting up a brand new WiFi router: Part 1: The Introduction

So, in this series of posts, I will be purchasing a brand new  WiFi router, reviewing it in a separate post, and showing you how to set it up. The setup will be Mac oriented however I'm sure it will work for both Windows PCs and Linux boxes.

The router I have selected is the TP-Link TL-WDR3500, which is a dual band Gigabit Ethernet WiFi router. It is a relatively cheap router compared to other dual band routers (update: it may also be an Apple AirPort Extreme, haven't decided yet).

The series will start with Part 2 (Unboxing and initial setup), then we'll go to Part 3 (USB sharing and advanced security), and finally Part 4 (port forwarding and other stuff). It will focus on common security mistakes made by people who have just bought a new router, and will also go into finding your way around the web interface.

Also, I will be doing some opinion coverage of MWC 2013, and at some point in the future I'll be doing a "Bizarre Errors" post and maybe a review of Everything Everywhere (EE) and their Bright Box (no, not their OM4G 4GEE, but their ISP arm, which I may be setting up for a relative).
