  1. I have a Netgear 614 that drops out at least once a week. Researching a

    replacement has been a daunting task. I want a wireless G router for under a

    C note that is stable, has a STRONG signal and is easy to install. I'm using Airlink

    cards that I don't want to replace. Any recommendations will be much

    appreciated.

    Linkysys Wireless G with two antenna work well, and are found at www.ecost.com for $50. You can also save a lot of money by not getting the linksys with Speedboost, which is about $50 of wasted money.
    We like the new Netgear white unit without a visible antenna for $79. We have found nothing better or more trouble free. The newer Netgears are quite an improvement over their older stuff.
    Avoid Belkin, Best, and Speedstream. Most others are pretty good.

    I had that problem too -- until I updated the firmware :)

    That Particular Router......

    The Linksys router that Raybay speaks of is routinely on sale at Best Buy for $50.00 cash & carry (no MIR). So if you're willing to pay sales tax and you're near a store, just keep checking the Sunday ad.

    It Just So Happens.......

    CompUSA has the router in question on sale this week for $49.95, again if you're near one of them.
