Windows 7 x64 / Same

It does get hammered quite a bit in all honesty.
I've known the v6 or v7 to drop connectivity altogether but not just port forwarding issues.

It appears to forget random forwarding settings in the table. I'll go to redo the settings and sometimes it says it will cause conflicts with one I've already set and sometimes it accepts the same settings I've already put there.

a bit like a corrupt DB... it's really weird!

D-Link DIR-655. I've had it about 6 months. Really like it except can't get Shareport to work in Windows 7. Other than that, it is extremely fast, range is excellent, port forwarding is easy for SlingBox and other unmentionables....

Well my neighbor uses a Linksys WRT54GS Router, since I use his internet I suppose I have the right to vote.

Prefer d-link over linksys though. >.>

Windows 7 Professional x64

I use Linksys. I have had really good luck with them.

I have tried Belkin, Netgear, D-Link and all of them gave me some problems (not all at my house tho).

I use to work at Best Buy and we sold the most of Linksys because everyone knew the name and since I had good luck with them I would recommend them. It's a personal preference in my opinion. Sometimes you just get a bad one and that will discourage people from getting them again....

Linksys is my choice

WINDOWS 7 Ultimate x64 Full

I use Linksys WRT160N. Router Works great, although I had some problems with initial setup. I contacted Linksys customer support and spoke with the rudest tech person I have ever delt with. Ended up solving the problem myself. Router works great but Linksys customer support

So you like it?

I was looking at the N Routers but felt I didn't need it/would use the full potential....

Linksys WRT54GL running DDWRT If that fails, then I have my Dlink DGL-4300 gaming router as a backup.

The big HDD poll!
I just want to see what everyone is using and prefers. Personally I use western digital and seagate both. I have actually never had a seagate fail on me but I have had a western digital fail once just tonight so I rely on both as they are both pretty good brands. Brands I would avoid though...
