    Re: Looking for a new router

    This is based on all the home and office installations I do over a 2 year period.

    Linksys WRT54GL = a lot of failures, When it works it is great, power is average
    Belkin = OK but not powerful, I really don't like these.
    SMC = Powerful, runs hot, had a few burn out. but was replaced by SMC
    D-Link = When they work they work. average signal strength. lots of failures.
    Hawking = works great until it died a month later.
    Netgear = works gut signal is not great.

    Westel = worthless, weakest wireless I have ever seen.

    SMC is what I use the most. They have warrantied routers that were 2 years old and I recieve them in 2 days. Linksys makes you jump through hoops to get them to warranty a unit. D-Link is takes about a week.

      Oops, I meant a D-Link DI-604
