Wi-Fi router recommendation


F

Frank Rizzo

Hello,

I am looking for a recommendation for a good Wi-Fi router. I've gone
through several (belkin, airlink, etc...) and I've had to periodically
reboot each one. I'd like a wi-fi router to have certain qualities:

1. Have an optional high gain antenna available, because my house has a
ton of walls and the signal tends to get weaker as you get into certain
rooms.

2. Be tested in the marketplace and have solid reputation (e.g. don't
want to be rebooting the router periodically).


Thanks.

I use and have installed D-Link routers and they have been excellent.
Use the D-Link Network Configuarator to spec your exact requirements:

Also, get a small UPS and plug the router/Wireless and modem (DSL or Cable)
into it. A UPS can significantly reduce connection problems due to power
fluctuations, and can reduce the chance of damage.

I'd recommend a Linksys WRT54G. The earlier models ran Linux, allowing one
to replace the firmware with better and more capable firmware written by
others. It is also easy (and Linksys supplies them) to replace the stock
antennas with more powerful ones.
