    I like Netgear routers too. Generally very reliable and full of features. Only some of the advanced options I found fiddly, but overall yes they are good routers.

    I have a netgear at home only to find out afterwards it was a netgear router from sky ( got it off of ebay ) and was not advertised as that so was not happy with that. Hopefully will be getting a router at some point.

    It does indeed and I like it but I've just found a 3com wireless AP that I had in a cupboard that can broadcast in b/g/a so I can piggy back that on to the (cheaper) Netgear one ad have my self covered for half the price.

    Thanks for all the replies

    Fair enough - no problems.

    What ever works for you really

    @ Dos Box - totally agreed on the belkin ( and thats anything belkin as far as I am concerned ) as far as networking goes at least anyway as I know they do splitters for vga, keyboards , mouse etc

    Thanks all,

    Netgear one on order for home but I've also ordered the Apple Airport for our 'spare' ADSL link here at school.

    Best of both worlds

    Does anyone know if the Linksys WAG160N comes with multiple SSID's? Like the Netgear Product DGN 2000

    Apart from the fact they'd have got it for free then sold it on to you, what's the problem with it? It is the same router but with Sky firmware - you can flash it back over to being a 'real' Netgear with a bit of magic, mine's being running at home on a hand me down Sky one for years

    with what firmware because I tried all the firmwares from netgears site and kept getting an error message and it would not allow me to upload the firmware ( directly connected via ethernet not wireless )

    You basically use the Netgear recovery utility intended for fixing bad firmware upgrades to force the Netgear firmware back onto it. Have had no issues with it at all - there's a handy tutorial here :
