What 802.11n router I use
- I use a Linksys WRT350N. I think that they are a good company with quality products and associated with Cisco.

D-Link 655 - drops connections
- Owned now just 8 months...started to drop connections constantly. Thought it was the best but now i know better. Waste of my time and money....shoulda have read the forums first.

Apple Airport Extreme + base station
- My Airport Extreme range is about 100 yards through 5 houses at the end of my block. It is dual band broadcasting two frequencies simultaneously. 2.7ghz (same as G - few crowded channels) 5.9ghz (lots of channels- less interference). This is nice because some things (iphone/ipod) are 2.7 only while laptops can use the faster 5.9. I also added an Apple Airport Express to my network for my PS3. The ps3 is wireless G only. The Airport Express picks up the wireless N signal from the Airport extreme. The express is plugged in next to the ps3 with a short Ethernet cable providing internet access to the ps3. As a bonus, an audio cable can be run from the airport express to my surround sound system for wireless music access with AirTunes. AirTunes can be controlled by your computer or iphone/ipod touch

Sticking with TrendNet
- I have a TrendNet TEW-631BRP (H/W V2.0R) Wireless N Firewall Router. It has been working without loss of connection, or any other problems for over 4 years. It has a very nice web configuration setup and help section. It is loaded with lots of features, many I am not using... . I am expecting my new TrendNet TEW-692GR dual band "N" .... sometime today. I bought a new BD player which works on both 2.4 and 5GHz bands and I needed a router that offers the same. I have used Netgear and Belkin in the past, but too expensive and the Belkin kept dropping the connection, and the Netgear lost its NAT ability. I will stick with TrendNet.
- Command Line Interface and Web GUI. Its the only way to go!

Linksys 320N modem router
- Best n series modem router for gaming, browsing movies and sharing, but one thing was not good and its very important - the [signal] range was very poor if down or up stairs.

Dlink DIR 615, Cisco WRT120N - moving on
- D-Link worked for about a year then started dropping connections. Set up Cisco a month ago and now have to restart at least once a day. Looking for something else. My sister uses a Belkin and seems fine. I had Netgear recommended and am leaning that way. Only good thing is that I have learned a lot about router setup though with the two that I have. Just want something to work.

No more D-Link for me
- I have been using a Belkin Enhanced Wireless Router (can't find a model number) for a bit over two years because my MUCH more costly D-link DIR-655 died a premature death in less than a year from purchase. D-Link Customer support does very little support. 4 of 6 D-Link USB wireless adapters also died prematurely. Netgear adapters costing about 1/4 of the price for the D-Link adapters are still going strong.
Netgear vs. Linksys WRT300N
- Netgear routers work good. Are there any comments about the functionality of Linksys wrt300n wireless routers?

Dlink DIR-655 B1
- Got this router and set it up. Only problem, can't stealth port 0. Tech support not great as stated above, sounds like they are in India. Connects great on a G adapter (bought on sale), a Dlink DWA-645 PCcard adapter - and it always connects at 300 Mbps. My laptop's speed tests are way higher than they ever were.

My Linksys drops connections
- Bought Linksys and it drops signal maddeningly, always at a critical time. Buy something else.

No issues with D-Link DIR-615
- I have had no major issues in setting this up. It has been working great for the past 2 months. I also use the D-link USB Nano wireless adapter on my laptop. Great combination.

- I use the Cradlepoint MBR1200 with the Sprint 598 USB modem---which keeps disconnecting when used in the router. works just fine when in the desktop computer or the laptop. Do not know how to stop it from disconnecting every 5 - 10 minutes.

- Absolutely brilliant from day one. Running 3 desktops and 3 laptops at home with no problems. I have a WUSB300n adapter for an old P3 laptop which is connecting at 300 Mbps. Admittedly I have updated the firmware and drivers, but isn't that what you're supposed to do? One DT is wired into the router and the other two have draft g NICs connecting at 48 - 52Mbps.
