I havn't had to many problems with either linksys (most models seems to have hacked firmware available to boost range and stuff) or TP-Link which come in slightly cheaper.

Depends on what features you are looking for like VPN, NAS support, print server, etc

linksys and tplink for me also, i`d stay well away from belkin like a whores spotty fanny.

my personal router is a draytek vigor, fantastic bit of kit, over kill for the house like, but rocksolid and loads of features, but they do come at a price.

TPLink is what i buy for customers , readily availible and not had a problem yet.

Agreed m8 i have had a Draytek Vigor Dual WAN one for a few years and it is a great router.

Also the voip on it is good too, just setup your account and make cheap calls.

thats exactly right, mines the 2910vg dual wan with VOIP, i have a siemens gigaset580 in the back (just into rj45) , phone is excellant for my personal landline, and also have a standard pstn phone in one of the voip ports for buisiness etc etc. Dual wan is fantastic as well, they also support 3g as well by usb if i remember rightly ;)

but yeah, top router and i only paid £60 delivered from ebay (used)
