Wireless routers

Last year I bought a Belkin N1 Vision wireless router. (hardware version 1000)

It has been a PITA from the start but I eventually got it to work right.

Well its dead Jim. I need a new one.

I was thinking of a Belkin N1 Vision (version 2000) because I've heard a lot of good things about it. However I would like to get opinions of other routers on the market.

I require a built in gigabit switch, and 802.11n wireless with WPA2 (which all n routers have to begin with).. The main thing I want is for it to be reliable with good range through walls..

A bonus would be the ability to Telnet to the router for advanced features...

Suggestions???

I've been using a Netgear Rangemax N router for @ 6 months now and I haven't had any problems. The last DLINK I bought was a POS. Kept having problems with the wireless dropping off. I made changes, called tech support, return it for a new one and same problems.

Depending on how you want to be with your lab, I'd suggest...

ASA 5505
Plug some AP that can be powered via POE into one of the two POE ports
Cisco Catalyst 3560G-24TS (upgrade for l3 stuff, good for lab will be able to L3 routing and/or turn as many ports as you want into routed ports)

There is the CE500 series, but those are real peices of shit.

Otherwise, after that it's the same-same IMO.

If you can go without the 1Gbps ports, you could get an 1800 series router w/ 8 switchports and B/G/N. However, given that you love VM I'd imagine you're really going to want the gig ports.

Take care,

My '03 Sold.
