Gotta hook up my wireless this weekend and I'm looking for a solid router. What do you guys have?
Airport extreme is pretty nice. I got one with my MBP it works wonders. Also can share a external HDD over the network, same with a printer.
I understand the WRT54G, but DD-WRT does not compute...
179.99 too steep. I was looking at spending >80, so far, I like the linksys you named.
I like my airport extreme. Works well and I share my pron drive throughout my frat house
While I agree that the DD-WRT firmware is nice for the Linksys, the lifespan on the consumer level Cisco products (i.e. Linksys stuff you see in Best Buy) is awful.
That said, my top choice is usually Buffalo......yeah, they're the underdog over here but their stuff is highly underrated.
Just my $.02
i like netgear, seriously.
i know there are lots of haters, but they seem to do the job
i only had one problem, but upgrading the firmware fixed it.
I've been very happy with my D-Link DIR-655, but it is a bit on the pricey side.

the new ones dont work with ddwrt however
Buffalo with ddwrt ftw.
i'm pretty sure its 4 or earlier. and fuck paying a premium just to have an older version of a product.
Is there any way to plug in more than one device to share? 2 HDD's and a printer???
I'm running a WRT54G with Tomato firmware. Works great
if all you need is a wireless router, there really is no need to get an airport extreme. If you need a printer server, then the airport extreme would be a nice choice. Just get a cheapo wireless netgear wireless router that offers WPA 2, and you'll be fine. Works for me
Airport Extreme here..
..usb wireless server ftw
Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 ftw, got one sitting on my desk as we speak. That model has a built-in RF amplifier for better signal than the WRT54GL, and for cheaper, too
Newegg frequently has free shipping on this model so keep a lookout for that.
I have 3 WRT-54GS V2's with Tomato firmware
MUTHA FUCKING .
I am getting ready to setup a old dell as a media server hooked to my APE beats having all your music and movies on a laptop and having to juggle to a external HDD for disk space.
