    I'm getting a router soon and I want to know the good brands and such. My last roter didn't quite work out so I want to get more information before buying one this time. Have any suggestions?

    I don't think that this thread is in the correct section, but anyway:
    I have a Netgear router and it works great for everything. I use it to connect to the Internet using my Wii as well as my DS and I have not experienced a single problem since the day of purchase.

    My Linksys router is great, it connects to the wii perfectly and security is great.

    I have around 45 dollars now. I'm assuming that's enough.

    Thanks for your input. Since most people prefer linksys I guess i'll buy a linksys router.

    I got a net gear. Exept we had to delete a bunch of security to get the router to work. Is there any router where I don't have to delete security to get the router to work? Maybe even something totally different from a router that still get's wi-fi. My budget is $50.

    And would Fry's carry this item? Fry's is the store I go to to get all my electronics.
