I say D-Link.

Some Linksys stuff has trouble with cable providers here for whatever reason.

I've had trouble using Linksys products on the Mac.

D-Link has the option to use their 'extreme' router + NIC for transfer rates up to 108mbit/13.5mbyte/second.

And its cheaper! :D

if you guys watch the broken though www.thebroken.org they explain how linksys routers arent safe enough or somthing i forgot watched it like 2 months ago if not more. my friend has a linksys 54g one and i like it its nice but the others like d-link are cheaper which doesnt really matter just a perk, and seem to be more secure.

the nature of wireless right now is that it is not secure, no matter what type of encryption you use...it's getting better, but the encryption algorithms are weak/broken so don't expect to be secure when using wireless!!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
