  1. Hi guys,
    i would like your opinions on which brand of routers do you think is the best and most user-friendly to use. By user-friendly i mean that it is easy to configure and there are sufficient step-by-step instructions on the manual to help you set up a successful connection.

    I have been using a Planet XRT-401C and i highly advise you NOT to use it. There's simply insufficient instructions given on the manual on how to configure it. I also keep having connection issues (limited connectivity) when connecting 2 of my PCs using this router.

    Looking forward to hearing your opinions!

    Cisco is the best, but expensive
    Netgear is very easy.
    LinkSys and DLink are relatively easy and offer more downloads and install help online than most others.
    Consider the LinkSys WRT330N, or the DLink Router which includes wireless, which is a dream to setup.
