  • get a wrt54g.... yes i know it is old... but more solid than most of the current ones out there... I have one and run ddwrt firmware on it.  Much much stable.

    if you need n... i would just get a trendnet N extender for $40.

  • I've been rather impressed with my TrendNet TEW633GR router. WHS had no problem setting it up and in the three plus months I've owned it has given me zero problems. I haven't even had to reboot the unit once.

  • Belkin N1+ works very well. No problem setting up from WHS.

  • I use a D-Link DI-624, connected well. It's about 4-5 years old. When I first got it, I called the phone support, and had a tech help me set it up. No problems since.

  • I would second the advice to get a router that can run DD-WRT (http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv3/) or Tomato (http://www.polarcloud.com/tomato) .  Both are alternative firmware that many models of routers can be flashed to.  Just read through the list of supported hardware on the two sites and but something that is supported.

    There are two reasons to use of one these alternative firmwares:  Flexability and Stability.  Both alternatives offer much more flexability in the options you can tweak.  They are also both rock solid when it comes to stability.  User routinely go months and months and months without ever rebooting or otherwise messing with their routers on these firmwares.

  • I recently purchased and installed a Netgear WNDR3700... love it!  I upgraded from a Linksys WRT54G running DD-WRT.  Much stonger wireless connections and the ability to use 802.11n.  Rumor has it there will be a DD-WRT version coming out soon for the WNDR3700.
