Which router is better?

Hi,

I'm currently using a Linksyse3200. I heard that Netgear or its comparable E4200 is better and faster? What's your opinion on this? Pls tell me the importance of a router? What should I look for in a router. Your shedding light on this would be very much appreciated? Thanks.

* You are asking for opinions.
Opinions are not always based on logic.

* Warranty terms, support & Security is often overlooked, but from my perspective is an important consideration.
I have found Linksys & Belkin more than satisfactory & both were chosen after much reading & research.

Hi titi2,

In addition, you dont' have to buy pricey routers. I used to own 2 Linksys Routers and didn't have any issues with them. Please have a read on this Article. It will give you a lot more ideas and what's best for you.

Hope this helps as well.
