    Hi,

    I am willing to buy a brand new router.
    However, I don't have any idea on which brand or product is good.

    Please recommend me a nice router,

    1. hopefully average price (comapring to other products)

    2. I hope it has a HARDWARE FIREWALL (NAT?SPI?)

    3. router for wireless connection (I mostly use my current router for wireless connection for my laptop)

    Thanks!

    Hey Hama,
    what type of internet do you have?
    Cable or adsl?

    Thanks all,
    I think Linksys will be a fairly good choice.

    I think it is adsl.

    Hi guys,

    I'm either going to buy

    Netgear WGR614 or Linksys WRT54G

    Can anyone choose one for me?

    I see Netgear WGR614 has a NAT/SPI firewall attached,
    but I'm no so sure with Linksys WRT54G.

    They are both the same price in my country.

    Help!!!! Thanks!

    Nevermind,
    I just ordered Netgear WGR614.
    I like the design and it seems to have NAT/SPI firewall.
    Netgear seems to be a good brand,
    so I'll just have to wait until it comes. :)

    Should be fine. All home grade routers come with NAT, that's how they work. Just about all now have SPI, although the benefits of that are usually debated..it's a very basic SPI. The Linksys wrt54g model is a very old model now, replaced by a few generations of newer models.
