    I bought a Linksys BEFSR41 v4.2 yesterday and I can't get it to work with BF2142. I used to run a WRT54G in BF1942 with no problems...but I keep getting disconnects from EA master server. I tried DMZ, and there is only 10 fields for port forwarding (even though it's not needed unless you're hosting...)
    So....what router should I get? I don't mind paying the price for performance, but any extra encryption or VPN tunneling options aren't needed.
    Here is one that I hear is good:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127060
    But is it really worth the price?
    What routers are you guys running with BF2142?

    The Belkin MIMO range is fast, good overall and reliable imo.

    Well I bought the BEFSR41 Linksys router and that sucked for gaming, so I returned it and bought a D-Link (can't remember the model entry level home router. It works like a charm without having to forward any ports other than my bittorrent port. It has a gaming mode as well. :D

    WHR-HP-G54.

    this is aguably the best router out there after you install DD-WRT on it.
    my config is
    +WHR-HP-G54
    +DD-WRT V23 SP2 mini (i use mini becouse i need the JFFS space)

    pm me if you do get one. i can help you with a few things...
