    Router inquisition -- suggestions

    Been looking to get a new router, had a Linksys 4-port one (dont remember model number) that served me very well for a few years, and now need some recommendations for a new one. Here's a description of the network I intend to establish (for my apt. at college):

    • 3 PCs (two roomies with XP box, me with my RedHat/XP setup)
    • Occasional laptop (windoze)
    • One IP supplied by provider

    I've been doing a little searching, and from have found a good review for a NetGear router (http://computers.cnet.com/hardware/0...html?tag=prmo5). The specs/performance/price look pretty good.

    What do you all think bout this NetGear one, and any other suggestions?

    Netgear kicks ass. If that is the model I think (RT614, silver slim one) I would get it. The model I just bought for a client of mine has a single WAN, 5 LAN with a shared uplink. And the firmware is great. Supports anything you throw at it. I have a really old but good RT311 that is rock solid and realiable as hell. Go with that one. The price is awesome and the product is even better!


    [edit] I actually followed the URL, and that is the one. Buy it. Its definitely worth the $$$ [/edit]

    Thanks, that's the one (RT614) ... I've seen some rave reviews for it, just wanted to get some feedback from you guys ;D ... looks like this is the one i'm gonna dish out for.

    I fell in love with Netgear a bit back, and they have given me no reason to shy away from them. I like the unit. It is VERY easy to work with and administer. You will be happy.

    Why not just build yourself a firewall/gateway from an old pc? It's quite easy to do and very cheap.

    I thought bout that, but right now I dont have any spare PC parts lieing around, and very little time to build one for such a use. I'll just have to go the convenient way and dish out the bucks for a router
