    Sorry; this isn't an N router, just G. But I recently bought this router on Amazon for just $25.00 and it works great.

    I wondered the same thing our old Linksys one has issues which can be frustrating.

    Feed it some better firmware. I like www.dd-wrt.com | Unleash Your Router

    I've used Linksys routers for years and have had really good luck with them.

    I've had some really good experience using Netgear. If I was in the market, I would go with one of theirs, or if not them, them Linksys.

    I really like my Dlink DIR-655. It's what I got when I got tired of Linksys and their useless support and wanted to get something that worked well out of the box.

    Same here. Don't get me wrong. Linksys makes some amazing routers, but their firmware and software support left a lot to be desired. I picked up a dlink gamer fuel and haven't looked back since.

    +1 For 3rd party firmware.

    A Broadcom based router with DD-WRT or Tomato firmware is my choice.
    I have an Asus RT-N16 running Tomato USB and it has been rock solid.
    Picked it up at ENU for $97.

    I use this exclusively. There is no better firmware replacement out there, and you can do SO much with it. Linksys routers have Cisco hardware filled with code that was written by opium infused monkey coders. DD-WRT actually makes the crappy 'security' features of a Linksys actually work.
