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:

But is it really worth the price?
What routers are you guys running with BF2142?

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
