    So I've been using a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router for the past year and have had nothing but problems with it. The big issue is the software that you use to manage your network (Linksys Easylink Advisor).

    Can you guys tell me what the best router is to get without killing my budget? Or if you can provide some ways to deal with the Easylink Advisor, that would work to =P

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, it would just randomly stop working and when I tried to use certain wizards to get it working again, set up new computers, or change the security setting they wouldn't work.

    I tried upgrading the easylink advisor, but then found out the newer versions aren't compatible with my router, so now I'm trying to reinstall the older version and when I get to the point that I select my router in the setup nothing happens (I click next and...nothing...)

    I'm using a WRT54G which is almost identical to yours and I've never had any problems. Maybe you just got the lemon. If you want a new router I'd go for either a linksys or d-link only because they're the only brands i haven't had any problems with.

    I kind of have it working now...oh well, I'll get it eventually!

    Instead of making a new topic I'll ask this too:

    My Norton Anti-Virus and Webroot SpySweeper are expiring soon and I was gonna renew them, but I wanted to hear some opinions on them before I do. Is there a better anti-virus out there? Or will these 2 hack it just fine?

    PS I've never had any serious attacks on my comp, so I assume they work okay...

    anti-virus isnt useless...it depends on the method, and the malicious code, but antivirus can be very effective. But nothing and i mean nothing, beats plain common sense computing habits.


    ps:your sig is fucking gay, like so gay its disgusting, turning that off in cpanel.

    there's no place like 127.0.0.1

    Ive had a belkin n1, wrt54g, and wrt54gs with custom firmware, and my wrt54gs is by far the most reliable router ive owned.
    perhaps you should flash a custom firmware too it.

    Uninstall the drivers/software, go to add hardware, pick it, then manually install the drivers, pick the cd, it should only install the drivers, then you can use windows to control your manage your network (connecting, searching etc.).

    Well, I'll give those ideas a shot tomorrow or something...if I disconnect the internet while my room mates want to use it then they'll shit bricks...

    So where do you get custom firmware for routers? (besides Google that is =P)

    Bleh the only routers i have owned have been from D-Link. The first one i owned worked prefectly for me for like 3 years, it eventually died. The second D-Link i currently own is about 1 year old and going strong i havent had any issues with it(so far). *crosses fingers*
