    Linksys routers are okay, just had a bad experience with them in japan, where they were not compatible with internet ISP's over there. Since then I have used D-Link routers, very good IMO.

    Nothing wrong with linksys routers though.

    Use netgear FR114Ps. I've had pretty good luck with them. You can do a lot of stuff with them thats not in most sub-$100 routers and they seem to last a bit longer than other brands, plus they have a good warrenty (5 or 3 years depending on when you bought it/when it was pakaged)
    The printer server with lpt support (don't use the included software, just lpt) is useful too, though it doesn't support usb.
    /Not to be confused with netgears cheap line routers, which kind of suck.

    That's what I need. Wonder if it works with a Linksys router?
