Wireless router advice.

CasualCasual Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Flap Flap Flap Registered User regular
I'm looking for a new wireless router since this one is slowly dying. Basically my internet use consist of,

- Random internet browsing
- Online gaming mostly FPS and RTS games
- Downloading stuff from steam

Is there anything relativity simple to use and idiot proof that does those things well? Or will any old router do?

Thanks for any advice.

    I doubt you need anything complex.

    I use a Linksys WRT54GL. does me just fine. granted, I also have a wireless bridge going on so that i don't need 50' of cables strung around my house, but that router is solid.

    its about all I have personal experience with however.

    as far as ease of use... i have a high level of experience with networking, so while it seems dreadfully simple to me, it might seem like greek to someone else. I would think you could make it through the direction easily enough though.

    Brand-wise I'd suggest Linksys. Other than that, you shouldn't need anything too special.

    The linksys WRT54GL is your typical wireless router that everyone and their dog owns, as in every home i've been in with a wireless router has had this model. Newegg has it right now for $55 shipped (2618 reviews, which is pretty damn amazing).

    Netgear. Don't get the older WRT54x shit anymore. I owned one of those and even had dd-wrt on it, but if you're going to invest in one these days get a wireless N router.
