    Currently running an older Linksys that has constant DNS problems, a known issue as there are complaints all over the interwebs about it. I am getting sick of flushing my DNS all the time. Researching routers is a fucking pain in the ass...I read all kinds of reviews and can't find anything that is consistently well reviewed. I don't need anything too insane, I am not a gamer and only have 3 to 4 wireless devices at the very most running at once.... I also don't wanna spend more than a hundred bucks....so I leave it up to you, the fine citizens of Dawgs to help me pick my next router.

    GO!

    super srs replies only please, I don't have time for any foolishness. :coffee:

    I have never owned a reliable router. They all go funky sometime after they are a year old. My current router is a Netgear WNDR4500. I think it was a little over $100. I read good and bad reviews on it. It's only a couple months old but has been rock solid. I wish I could be more help but it was a crap shoot for me.
