Which router to get?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am in need of a new wireless router, and I'm not really sure which one to get. The one I was thinking about getting is the Asus RT-N16, is there a better one I should be looking at? Typical home network setup, not gaming from any of the computers that use wireless, just mainly net browsing need a strong signal. I'd like to stay below 200$.

That's a solid choice,but if you want to see some comparisons checkout the site.

EDIT: For your needs something like a Linksys WRT120 or 320 may be all you need.

The Dlink DIR-655 is real popular and inexpensive. My son and I both run them and they work perfect. Good range and lots of features for the less-than-$100 price tag.

The WNDR3700 is awesome, I highly recommend it.

I like my Dir-655, buffalo has some decent routers too. You might decide you want something that can be flashed to use ddwrt or something similar.

I ended up going with the Asus RT-N16, after reading some threads on ddwrt/tomatousb. Thanks for the input tho guys.
