Hi everyone!

As I live in China, you would asume that I could find anything I want, most things being made here. I'm sad to tell you it's not the case!

I've been desperately looking for a linksys routeur to share internet in the whole house and local prices are like twice the normal price because chinese sellers buy from america then send the routeurs here! I guess no one has found the linksys company yet or they are made in the US? Confused

Anyway ... I need help Scared
All the ebay sellers I contacted either don't reply to me or refuse to send to China :s

I'd like to pay by paypal, first send the full payment for the routeur+shipping to you, then send another payment for shipping to me. I can also send a little extra box from here with some local candy and some UV hair that I have Smile

Thanks! Flirty Pony

I wish I could help but I don't have experience with international shipping yet Scared I keep meaning to have a talk about it with my post lady. I wouldn't feel right taking up the duty without knowing what the hay I'm doing lol.

Oh well I'm sure there's someone around here with a lot of experience in it. Someone will help! Maybe when the boards are back in working order someone will move it to Trader Support, you might have better luck there.

Wow, I would think you would be able to get routers more easily in China. Isn't there a cheaper brand you can get? In the USA you can get a linksys router from walmart for maybe $20-30, but other brands like D-link might be a little cheaper.

I tried to look up some information on shipping to China, and it sounds like there is a lot of red tape to get through---import/export restrictions to study, and lots of documents involved. I couldn't find any comprehensive guide that detailed exactly everything that needs to be done though. It also seems like it could be expensive and take a lot of time. I would love to help if I knew how, but are you sure it is worth it?

I recently helped PonyMonsters and FPM order something they couldn't get in Britain and I'd be more than happy to help you out. Feel free to PM me!
