Recommend Firewall Router

Hello Networking Gurus,
My house has 8 wired locations. I decided we needed a hardware firewall router to replace internet conection sharing and our hub. Any recommendations? more than 8 ports would be a bonus.

Thanks, Mike

  1. We use a Linksys BEFSR81 8 port EtherFast Router with built in hardware firewall, and it works great.

    You can pick one up (or something similar) just about anywhere for $100 CDN or less.

    Spec:
    Intel P4 2.4B
    MSI 645E Max-U Mobo
    512MB DDR333
    GF3 ti200 64MB
    SB Live 5.1
    WD 60GB (Storage)
    Maxtor 6GB (System)
    Maxtor 120GB
    LG 24x24x32 CDR
    WIN2K PRo SP4
  2. I use a Netgear RO318. It is very fast and has many features I like. It has never had to be restarted, in the nearly 2 years I've owned it, and it's been on the whole time barring power outages.
