Routers getting real evil lately
@prehensile oh yeah! And it's in like every consumer product marketed largely to men. Like, every truck on the market now has a front grill that looks like a Street Shark
@prehensile i've been thinking about upgrading my ancient clunker for years and every time i go to the store i see
and walk away
@prehensile Luckily it's mostly WLAN AP + router combinations from what I've seen
Routers alone tend to be boxes in my experience, like my Edgerouter X which is as rectangular as they get
And WLAN APs are just.. WLAN APs, like Ubiquiti's circular ones
@prehensile it's not actually dangerous when it's on its back, it cannot get on its feet without external help, and cannot move from this position by itself
@prehensile assuming these aren't big enough to stand on comfortably those are some really tiny monsters
