    New WiFi Router, Suggestions?
    So this last week I have started looking at getting a new wireless router. Ours is about 5 years old and extremely outdated.

    I am looking to get a router that is 801.11 b/g/n and so far that is my only necessity. I am wondering what types of routers you all are using? Keeping in mind that I dont have an endless amount of money

    Thanks!!

    Netgear WNDR3700

    Easy question, easy answer.

    Best on the market for the money right now.

    Amazon.com: Netgear Rangemax WNDR3700 Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (Black): Electronics

    Personally I've always like Apple's Airport base stations, I especially like the dual radio of the newest model which lets me keep my N devices separate from the rest so it doesn't slow them down.

    If that's too much, probably can't go wrong with a Linksys.

    Netgear, at least in my experience and from people I know, tend to be a little flaky.

    I agree with schweb, I have never had a good experience with Netgear and so avoid them like the plague.

    I would personally recommend the D-Link DIR-655. It's a fantastic router that's very affordable. I bought two, one for the family and one for myself.

    +1 for the D-Link DIR-655. And I agree about Netgear. I have an almost new one sitting on the shelf - not totally useless, but almost.

    Regards.
