    I'm in the process of looking for a new modem/router and was wondering what people's recommendations for manufacturers are?

    my netgear doofer has never let me down, works with my psp, ds, lappy and ps3.

    let me go look it up.

    think its Netgear DG834G. i've had 2 of them and they both worked a dream.

    Netgear followed by D-Link is my preference. Not a big fan of Belkin or Linksys personally, althougth i'm sure theres plenty of folks who have had no issue with them.

    I'm a D-Link kinda guy. Not a fan of Linksys. Haven't had anything Netgear in years but I remember being pleased with the performance.

    Personaly I have huge problems with set ups of netgear and d link die often(I do cleints wireless and wired set ups alot). I prefer linksys for wired and wireless. But if I want a nice and easy setup I really like Apples Airport( but unless you are trying to share a dial up conection the Airport tends to be over priced).

    I'm a linksys guy myself. I recently upgraded to a wireless N gigabit router (can't remember the model number). My old linksys lasted me years before I had to replace it.

    At the office I've got dlink stuff... only because Telus gave it to me with the internet package.

    I don't think you can really go wrong with any of the major manufacturers.

    routers i like Linksys...no issues on any computer that i had to use (or install on)...i got the Wireless N Gigabit Router. I also upgraded my ethernet card to a 10/100/1000 Netgear card so i can get the most outta it.
