Netgear N300. The Readyshare feature is great.

Whichever of the two neighbour's unsecured routers has the strongest signal strength at the time. Unsure of the brands if I'm honest.
I am shocked that there is no unsecured routers around here apart from Bt flipping fon.

The one my ISP gave me, which is perfectly adequate. I usually have the wireless option disabled, and only enable it occasionally for my kindle. Certainly not worth actually buying a router for.

I use an Asus N56 cable router.

Expensive compared to some (about 80), but good wireless signal and more than capable of dealing with the highest speeds our cable can give us at the moment

Prior to that it was a Dlink DIR 615 which was passable but tended to lose connection to the modem about once a week at random.

i never seemed to have much luck with Belkin routers or their network cards for that matter. I also know of a few people who have had Belkin routers and have had problems with them.

But then I also know people who have Belkin routers and they been fine, but that seems to be minimal.

the worse one was a mate who could not update his windows when his computers was connected it, but as soon as we put a old netgear in place, it went fine. i tried all ways to get it working, but nope and it also knocked out mobile phone signals. as soon as i entered his house my mobile phone signal would reduce to almost nothing, again got rid of the belkin and all was fine.

but a mate of mine used to swear by them until he got a Asus and realised the Asus is far better.

I was offered a Belkin by my ISP, ok I had to pay for it, but I thought no way, I will get my own,

Our ISP-provided one. It's a Netopia but I'm unsure of the model number.

I use a ZyXEL but dont use it as a wireless router and tend to use the cabled version instead. i am not a fan of wireless anything.
I have a ZyXEL P660 wireless router, and we use the wireless function a lot. It does what it says on the tin.

Having said that, a router with USB slots for sharing printers and storage is a great idea, and if I bought a router now I'd get one of those.
