Windows 7: Recommended router

Recommended router

I currently have a Netgear router, its been fine for about 2 years untill it wont transmit signals to my laptops.

A quick google search of the model number, WPN824 V3 shows that this is a common problem after a while.

I'd want to get another one, and FAST.

I do NOT want a LINKSYS.. there total sh*t from past experience.

I have upgraded firmware on this one too. Seems like its reached the end of its day.

Thanks

Hello there.

Cisco Valet M10 router would be a nice choice!

Newegg.com - Cisco Valet M10 802.11b/g/n Wireless HotSpot Router up to 300Mbps/ Easy setup by USB dongle inside

Cisco is one of my favorites, and that particular model has an "Easy Setup Dongle" for easy installation and stuff..

Really nice

Not that it matters as the Linksys brand is merging into Cisco Valet's branding.

I have 2 Netgear routers and never had any problems. This is the one I use in the US ( NETGEAR - N150 Wireless-N Router - WPN824N-100NAS ) The one I use in Germany has an integrated modem. Previously I had a Linksys. But that was no good.

Connect router wirelessly to main router
Recently I bought a TP-Link WR841N router and, unaware of what it needed, there had to be an ethernet cable coming from the main router (BT Homehub 3) for it to work. Is there any way I can connect these two wirelessly? I don't mind whatever way I connect it to my PC.
