    I'm gonna due a network in my friends house on about 4 computers. So I went out and didn't something frowned upon, and just bought a router at circuit city. I didn't do it completley stupid, I bought linksys, a trusted brand, and I'm not gonna open it either until I am sure that its good. So anyways I got them a Linksys WRT54G, so If anyone here has or has experience with this particular model, give the details. Thanks. Duffman.

    Ok, update I skimmed a couple of reviews over, all good, 4/5 5/5 etc etc. Now anyone that has experience setting up networks for people that aren't really computer nuts I got some questions.

    I know I have had problems forwarding ports and shit with my pos no name brand, but on average, how often does a non filesharing person have to deal with ports and that stuff.

    Also I know for someone that is into good computer stuff and speed typically gets top of the line for routers and internet connection related stuff, but if I have someone that isn't really doing that sort of thing, is less quality still gonna cause problems, i'm trying to make this so I don't get a phone call once a week because the router needs to be reset or there getting firewall issues, whats the best way to go about this thing.

    You need to port forward for many internet-connected applications. Often doing so is an optional step to achieve better performance.

    Examples you might need to port forward for:
    Online games
    FTPing
    VNC controlling of your pc
    Peer to Peer programmes you know
    etc

    Don't look at the router as a problem, just think of what you need to do, google for it or check it out at http://www.portforward.com/ and set up your router accordingly.

    Also, secure your router if it's wireless so neighbours and wardrivers don't nick your bandwidth.
