wireless routers???

5 posts in this topic

What's the best "consumer grade" wireless router and where would you guys recommend buying it? Oh, this is for the US, so keep that in mind. :) This would be for a reasonably clueful non-tech.

...Have you checked Consumer Reports and/ or any of the popular computer magazines?

Just looked at CR. I'm more interested in the "fellow geek opinion." :)

Correction... looked at a site called "consumer research." Consumer Reports doesn't seem to have any ratings. I did Google and find some articles. Mostly they pushed the ultra-high-end stuff that's like $150-200+

Doesn't your broadband supplier offer a plug & play modem and router ?

In the UK PlusNet sent me a Technicolour TG582n 4 Port Wireless Router which has worked fine.

Yeah, but I'm a Paranoid A$$-wipe. I don't trust my internet provider. I don't want them to be able to log into my modem/router and change settings, etc. :) I prefer a separate router and modem. :) Remember -- just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you! :P
