    I'm looking for the best possible router, that will keep me as secure as possible. Something with a hardware firewall, would be great also.

    Right now, I'm looking into linksys, but am unsure which is the best. Any idea would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Linux or freebsd on an old p100.. The most customizable and configurable router you can get for under $100 in costs.

    While I agree, it's not always the best option for your less then PC know-it-all...

    Go with Linksys or Netgear. Steer clear away from D-Link, Signamax, or AESP.

    Linksys makes a pretty good SOHO router in my opinion. What's your budget though?

    I had a netgear that got toasted when somebody tried to hack through it.... ever since I've had a linksys with no problems whatsoever, and I know I've been attempted-hacked a few times.

    its the BEFSR41U or something like that.
