    Default Which brand of routers??

    Just wondering how many people do use wireless routers at home?
    If yes, which brand?

    I'm just curious on the popular brands among people..
    I personally use D-Link due to the lifetime warranty.

    How about you guys?

    I've used 3Com since day one. 1 box comes with everything. Modem, router, firewall, wireless, etc. Very good.

    I use 2Wire because I have other things to spend on.

    The connection is terrible, however.

    I used to use Buffalo, but somehow I suspect Starhub max online had made some changes to its configuration (they denied it) which make the Buffalo incompatible to be used.

    And now, I am using the physical cable which is 100% reliable.

    Flash your buffalo with dd-wrt. Works like a charm.

    You may read about dd-wrt from its website

    http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv3/index.php

    however, please make sure you undersand the procedures properly. there is a slim chance your router may get spoilt beyond repair if something goes wrong.

    Yup, but very good. Adds radius auth, and you can boost the power output of the antennas for extra range.

    My wireless routers are in the following sequence:
    - 802.11 b standard - D-Link DI-713P
    - 802.11 g standard - LINKSYS WRT54GX
    - 802.11 n (draft) standard (current router) - D-Link DIR-825

    My broadband experience are in the following sequence:
    - SingTel Magic - good connection with no (seldom) hang/drop connection
    - SingNet - very frequent hang - need to cycle the power of modem and router
    - StarHub MOL (current carrier) - very good connection with no (seldom) hang/drop connection
    - SingTel MIO - No experience and from what I heard, would not want to try (at least not now)
