Netgear or Linksys

Hello Im about to setup a wireless network at home and currently using Netgear router for my wired network but I do see lots of users using Linksys Router and so was wondering what you guys view on these two routers like which is better for wired/wireless network etc.

I would choose Linksys over NetGear as it die off less than 1 year.

I would also go with Linksys as it's a branch of Cisco Systems a very well known company.

Again, the most probable cause is wireless networking. Do you have a shortlist of wireless routers that you are currently looking at? It will be very helpful to know the features and functions, as well as the embedded wireless chipset within that model.

Also, do you intend to purchase the network adaptor of the same brand? Or are you relying on your embedded-Intel wireless functionality to hook up your clients to the network?

Network coverage will, of course, be least of your problems due to the fact that most of us live in apartments unless you have a genuine concern for covering a larger-than-norm area.

I would go with linksys too as I have been using the WRT54G router for 2 years already without failure. It has also endured the water from my aircon leakage and still able to stream movies without laggines.. not mentioning lan gaming..

What i like about linksys routers are it's hardware design.

Anyway, i know that and have heard that linksys router firmware will hang when a good amount of data is being heavily transfered however i have not experienced this before.. but who cares, if you really need a change of firmware, look at talisman or something, i actually wanted to install talisman so that i can install a mrtg monitor in the router however i am waiting for a spare router just in case i wasted my current router.. hehz..

2 years and still running, the Linksys WRT54G , the G Series warrior.. *Not mentioning that my modem and router has been running for 2 years and having a short rest of about 4-5 days only maximum.

Yeah, Linksys still the best
FYI : Linksys has a toll-free international helpdesk no. F.O.C
Netgear has a helpdesk no. but there is a charge for every minute as if it is a 1900 call if i'm not wrong..
