    Which router

    My Linksys BEFSR41 router just died and I need to purchase another router. Since the current one lasted from Jan of 2003, I was going to buy another Linksys BEFSR41 from Newegg for about $33.00 after rebate. I also see they have a D-Link EBR-2310 in the same price range. Opinions please on which is the better router. I was also checking at Best Buy, and when I read the requirements for the D-Link, it only mentions Windows 2000 ??? I will be connecting a computer running XP Pro and a computer still running Windows 98SE. Thanks for your opinions and recommendations

    Home use routers are a mature technology. If you could "head to head" testing of the various brands, it is unlikely that you would find anything other than tiny performance differences.

    I don't need a router right now, but I am considering buying one later today to keep as a spare. It not only has wireless capability, it has four wired ethernet connections and is an internet gateway. That means that it will also be a spare for my dsl modem. All that for $29 with no rebate.

    This one is good because there is many different firm ware linux destros out there for it and you can get it to do whatever you need.
