    hi folks ! i am on the look out for a router and i would appreciate any help u can give me recommending which router's good ! bellow my stats so that it could narrow things down:

    xp pro,p4 2.0 gh ,i live in germany
    internet provider: 1und1 dsl 768 dl 128 ul ( i stated this because there are routers in germany designed only for one internet provider -t-online) and it could be that i might be changing providers in the next couple of monthes.so the router has to work for all ( except aol which sucks ). I do want a router with a firewall as well as security is very important


    ok thnkx in advance

    do not get D-Link its a real pain and it may be cheap but not worth it. It has problems sending out signals. Which means games, email does not work.

    I know a lot of people are recommending LinkSys routers and hubs but I don't really like them. They don't have all that many features and they come in that cheap blue and black plastic enclosure.

    I recommend you get a Netgear 801.11g router that trasmits at 54 Mbits! There are also 801.11g routers that work in turbo mode and can transmit data at an amazing 104 or 108 Mbit/sec, that's more than 100BaseT CAT 5 network cable!

    If you just want a router without all that wireless stuff I suggest you still grab a Netgear. They are by far the most feature rich and secure personal routers you can get! And Netgear is sold in Germany, which means it will work!

    Take a look at these routers from Netgear





    Alles Gute
