Wireless Routers?

Postby eagles21 » Mon Aug 11, 2008 9:38 am

I'm looking to buy a wireless router so I can connect to the internet from around my house. I'd like an inexpensive (under $75?) router that is still reliable. Anybody have any experience with this that could help me? Thanks. ;-D

I have no idea how much it cost but ours is white and it says "Netgear" on the top.....that really doesn't help much does it? :-b

Whats going on with the router? Is it giving off a weak or no internet signal? You do know that occasionally you have to unplug the router and remove phone line to reset the connection. :-?

trust me we've done everything, my neighbor sets up networks for a living so we had him come over a few times and he's suggested a different router cause apparently this one has this problem somewhat often, problem is I can't remember which one it was, I might have to ask my dad.

edit: yet again I didn't adress the original question, it was giving off no signal whatsoever, so we tried pretty much everything there is to try...twice. And I shouldn't say he sets up networks for a living, he used to and still sorta does it on the side if someone he knows wants a wireless network set up.

Ahh I see, yeah I'd give up on the Linksys then. Like I said we used to have one and it worked fine...I'm assuming it did because it's the only one my dad ever had but know that I think about it I'm not sure my dad ever really used it. Anyway like I said we have a Netgear one now and it works fine. ;-D
