Hi guys, the free d-link 502 router is showing its true colours and is a hit and miss afair when making changes, half the time screwing up settings and not connecting. I run a couple of VPN connections through it for partner remote access so need to fix this.
So, we need a quality consumer class router to replace the 502. It connects up to a switch so gigabyte not required. Doesnt need wireless, and not interested in running anything other than the original code on the unit for support purposes.

suggestions?, I like the netcomm units, anything else?

Anyone with experience of the Linksys AG300, supports up to 5 VPN's and has a SPI firewall! Ascent has a clearance on them!

No idea, but I love my Dynalink RTA1320, it connects the fastest and has the best web interface in my opinion (not including OpenWRT etc)

Thanks Agent, I pulled the trigger on the AG300!

It is a Linksys so it shouldn't be too bad

Was just PM'ing a fellow PF1'er about routers. Suggestions:

I tried the AG300 for VoIP after PBTech were out of the AM300 back in the day. Never again... Personally wouldn't go near them with a 10-foot pole :( It overheated just as bad as the WAG160N's were, and VoIP over it was just a no-go ... Hope you have better luck :-/

Chilly, which one overheaded?, the AG300 or AM300...this one doesn't have VoIP or Wireless, just vanilla model!

Yeah the AG300 overheated. Had two of them, both did. Never again ...

The AM300 on the other hand, my personal fav, that or the Draytek DV120. Both great low-cost routers for half-bridging etc
