questionswhich wireless router do you use?


I still have my handy-dandy Linksys WRT54GL.


Cisco E-3000, it is dual band.

Plugged it in over a year ago and forgot about it.
Not one problem at all !


I have a netgear and linksys that sit in their box. I didn't like them. Bought a Cradlepoint MBR1000 about 3 or 4 years ago and still love it today. I can walk about 7 houses down and still have wifi.


I also have a Cisco (Linksys) E series dual band. Love it. Replaced my single band unit because it didn't work except with computers. I have no problems now with my smartphone, iPod, smart TV, wireless printer.


I was using an E3000 for a while and was having issues in my house so I switched to the E4200. The E4200 was running better, but I was still having issues adding new devices to my network (mainly printers). One night I lost access to my NAS server and no matter what I tried my network wouldn't pick it up. I finally gave up and picked up an Airport Extreme and have been very happy with it. I added an Airport Express to the top floor of my house and now my signal is pretty solid and adding a device is a piece of cake.


@qphaze: I have 2 of these as well running Tomato and WDS.
Lately they have been dropping devices on the wireless, so I figured it's time to upgrade to something new running DD-WRT or similar.

I'm rocking a dual band Belkin N700 series. I had been using a D-Link DIR-655 until age and power surges made it misbehave, so out it went.

Right now, I'm very happy with it. I have a AT&T microcell sitting in a DMZ, and a whole raft of devices on a whole house ethernet network that it seems to manage fine. Notably, though, there did seem to be one bad firmware that they released a few months back (or maybe the installation of same). It was causing Android devices to see the router, but not connect and the microcell to drop a phone call after 10 minutes or so.

There was a major firmware update three weeks ago that seems to have fixed both problems (for now). Wireless coverage is pretty good, no complaints there. My only real bitch is that I can't assign an IP address to a given MAC address (some devices don't allow for assigned IPs, like said microcell), and port forwarding is a bit more painful than it should be.


I have been running a Linksys WRT54G V8 for a few years and it has been trouble-free.
