    Wireless router

    Being a newbee, need some help on what router to buy. Looking at Linksys 3200, 4200 or 4200 V2? Plan on running a desktop computer and a tablet.

    I'm not a Linksys fan but that's just me. I have an Asus RT-N56U. It's a bit pricey but totally awesome

    I have an old (WRT350N) Linksys router. It is an OK router, but I eneded up running custom firmware on it and modifyting it to add a heat sink and fan since it had overheating issues. Since then, the newer Linksys routers similar to the ones you are looking at seem to have some issues. My dad (who is a techy guy) has one and he needs to reboot it about once a week or it stops working. He put a holiday light remote switch on it so he can just reboot it from his recliner when it stops working (the router is one floor up from his living room).

    I am drooling over the ASUS router that Jeffrey has spec'd out, but I cannot justify getting it since my current 350N is running like a rock star since I modified it.

    Is the Asus RT-N56U easy to set up? Prices on eBay for that unit similar to the Linksys E4200.

    Replaced our D-link with Netgear WDNR 3700. Nice options, great security, easy to set up, and superior range. Big improvement over the D-link.

    I have the 4200v1 and the Firmware stinks. Stay away from linksys these days. They have horrible support and sensor there forums to bad feedback.

    Very easy to setup. It has a UI as part of the FW. You should download the user manual from the Asus Support Site as it does a good job explaining each setting.

    Its a netgear N600 wdnr3700 and i just switched to this too. Its absolutely amazing. The router is in the back of my house and i get signal out on the street. The 5ghz is a waste on our transformer since it only sees 2.4ghz but I suppose its nice to have it. My Samsung infuse and the wife's touchpad use 5ghz and 2.4 and the reception sucks so everyone uses the 2.4. Long story short for under $100 this is an amazing router with extremely simple setup.

    We replaced our d-link that died with a Cisco Valet. It has very good customer support. We had a problem with one computer hooking in and CSR was very good and patient. Router is very good. No problems!

    I have had a WNDR 3700 for quite some time and it IS a solid and highly configurable product that is doing a great job. But they don't manufacture that model any more. I think the replacement is a 4500 or 4800, something close to that
