I have personally owned one Belkin, two Netgears and a Sitecom. Never had any trouble with any of them. I liked the Belking because it was small, the Netgear because I could stand it vertically and the Sitecom because it was N compatible and I got it on sale. The Netgear Set Up was probably the easiest, the Sitecom had the greates Wireless range.

PCAdvisor gave their top pick as the TP-Link W8950ND Click Here

Thahks for that, But what does N computable mean.

click here the N suffix indicates that this is the latest and fastest specification for a wireless connection. Both the router and the computer (or USB wireless adaptor) need to be to this standard to get the fastest available wireless connection.

I have a Linksys WRT 54g connected to my Virgin connection that is about 6yrs old and still going strong

for an basic home user you cannot beat netgear routers they are very reliable, have good technical support and above all very very easy to set up!
