    When I had a linksys it kept dropping connection. Then I went to a Belkin which wouldn't to the ADSL. Now I'm on a D-Link which works ok, but I think the first two were just faulty. Linksys are supposed to be good.

    Netgear, D-link, are decent, linksys gives trouble some times, the WAG54G series hasnt been the best in the world

    D-link DI-524 is a huge no no, its super cheap, i lose connections all the time.

    it throws a hissy fit if any other wires are near it. drops connections every minute or so taked 5-10s to repair them.

    I've got a D-Link DSL-G604T. It was fairly cheap and works ok for internet browsing and I use it for net gaming. It can be complicated to set up and initial connection can be difficult but now I've got it up and running the DSL is reliable but the wireless connection occasionally breaks up (possibly due to my Belkin PCI cards?). Overall not bad, I'm sure that there must be better routers out there though.

    Well thats funny...my DI524 rev.C is the most stable piece of network equipment I own. Of course, its no substitute for a MODEM :p. I've heard things about the new DI524 revisions, but they USED to be really good. I know nothing about modems, as long as they work. PS- if any of you guys have comcast internet, reset your router, they're having network issues :laugh:. Seriously...my friend got 12Mb/s Downstream (!).

    I know this is probably a little bit late but for anyone buying a router in the future I have returned my D-Link because it kept on dropping the wireless connection and now I have bought a Belkin which I must say is excellent for most purposes.
