Ok I have had bad luck recently with router (well just 2) anyway, I just surf & game, I just want a consumer level router, after my Dlink died I got a new router then the bad luck started, I got a Netgear can't remember the model it was a rangemax though, wireless ended up totaly going out on it soon after. Then I got the one I have now a Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router WRT160Nv3 the wireless went out about 3 months back a firmware update fixed that, then this months it started again, Ok another upgrade fixes it for a few minutes then well you get it I saw a post saying wireless keeps going out with Linksys firmeware & installing DDWRT fixes it, but after 22ish hourse the wireless goes out with DDWRT. Oh unpluging.resseting the router always fixes it for a few. So I am thinking it is a hardware issue * I do see that model on Amazon selling as refurbished versions also, not really a good sign.

Is D-Link DIR-615 (Rev. B2) a good one? It got a good review http://www.maximumpc.com/article/reviews/dlink_dir615_r... it is $40 on Amazon also. Good price on the Buffalo. Why does the wireless come back when I reset/reboot/or unplug then plug the router back it? Edit: Maybe it was the USB wireless card, another got plugged in when the wireless was disconnected & it connected again,

I had buyed Ultra Compact 300Mbps Wireless N Travel Router last month.It is about US $75. It comes with a convenient carrying case, a thin 3-foot Ethernet cable, an Energy Star Certified external power adapter, a handy alternate USB cable to power the router from a computer, and the Ultra Compact 300Mbps Wireless N Travel Router.
