Ive just swapped from ADSL to cable so I have been researching what router to buy to share my new connection. Im just after a fairly cost effective 4 port wireless router but unsure which brand to go for. so it would be much appreciated if someone could recommend a good router for me or a link to a good website reviewing them.

thanks for any help

here are two routers I was considering, the Linksys WRT54G and the belkin wireless g equivalent both are round the $100 mark.

Without hesitation, the Linksys WRT54G, its a great router with lots of features and they have a pretty good help line too. Its very reliable and performs very well.

I've been using it for abt 2.5 yrs and never a problem.

I will second Linksys, is the only networking gear I use :thumbs:

I have a WRT54GL running DD-WRT and plenty of features, stable easy to use/configure
