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.
