ive had bad luck with routers. my linksys sucked and was always dropping my connection either hardwire or wireless. so i got some cheap one from newegg and it was working good for the first few months now thats dropping my internet.

can any of you guys recommend a stable and reliable router? wireless devices dont travel to far from the router usually around 25ft.

Linksys WRT-54GS w/ dd-WRT firmware

I have been running 3 of them for about 4-5 years and my connections are always rock solid

Honestly anything that you can flash DD-WRT on will be great.

I know the WRT-54 has gone UP in price with this DD-WRT stuff. I used to be able to find those things for dirt cheap used. Now it's harder.

I also use one as a receiver for my gaming consoles in the living room, this way I can run a "wired" connection for my 360 and PS3.

If you don't care about wireless N, then the WRT54 is the way to go. I have a ver. 1 WRT54G that I used for years as my main router. It's now been flashed with dd-wrt and is being used as a receiver. I also have 2 other WRT54GLs that work great.

If you're looking for a wireless N router, I've been happy with my Netgear WNDR3700.

Wish that was true. picked up a Netgear WNDR3300 Dirt cheap, and some days it performs as bad, if not worse than my old 54G 6.0. Laughing Though some of that may have to do with the freaking garbage 2wire HPNA "Gateway" modem I have.

Ive had 2 linksys wrt54g's fail on me. and in my experience their customer service sucks. im using netgear wgr614 that has better coverage and has lasted longer than either linksys.

yeah, I keep looking to see if they have dd-WRT yet for my WRT610N, but no.

I'm almost tempeted to go back to the WRT54, but I wanted the gigabit router.

stay away from Link sys and netgear... D-LINK are rock solid...it's what Verizon uses for their Non FIOS (DSL) customers..I used to be a field tech doing small business / home computer repair / networking..i used to see a lot of broken linksys and netgears. Netgear used to be good...now they are junk IMO.
