    I use both Linksys and 3COM products and both have been excellent. :)

    Why?

    There are lots of options:
    - broadband router with nat 'firewall'
    - dedicated firewall (watchguard soho, pix, fortinet)
    - linux fw/router (ipcop, sme server, astaro)

    Issue at stake: what functions do you need?

    All in one protection: get astaro (there's a home solution). But there's not one solution to your question without more info.

    Hmmm. Well, I use NetGear provided and set up by my cable company. Works just fine. Only problem I ever had was electricity flickers in the slightest caused malfunctions. So I bought a (no monitoring software for this one) APC UPS battery to add to the one (that does monitor) for my system. Solved that real quick. Every thing runs smooth as silk. :)

    I recommend this addition hoso. Smart move! ;)
