  • I messed up your vote.  The backup is Belkin (which I voted for), but the router is 2Wire - this model, I believe (came with AT&T U-Verse).

    Also, this is a DSL modem with wireless capability, not technically a router, but I assume it counts for what you are asking.

  • d-link and netgear are also used.. i use my linksys modded with DD-WRT and have a d-link as a backup.. along with another wireless backup that counts as other.. i hope this helps you guys out :)

  • I have a Netgear 802.1b/g wireless router that has been in place for years. I keep the firmware up to date and I built and installed a better antenna. I have had no real need to change, but if  I did I would probably either go with a Linksys (Linux based) that I could hack or simply use an old PC with Linux and a pair of NIC's (I have a 16 port switch).

    I wrote and taught some networking courses for a technical college, and if it were up to me I'd  spend some time on the theory of how routers work and the OSI layers before you get specific with one brand.

    Most of the devices we refer to as routers in the residential market are actually router/switch/WAP combo units so a bit of information on ARP tables, DHCP, SSID, and encryption wouldn't hurt either.

    Probably more information than you wanted.

  • Linksys running DD-WRT here too.  A Netgear stuff away in a closet some where as a backup.

  • Airport Extreme with 802.11N and Gigabit Ethernet, early 2008.
