Excellent and easy to use DSL routers.

21 May 2008
  • Summary: I have used these inexpensive but excellent routers for years. The last one I had was almost 6 years old when it failed due to a power line spike. It is easy to use in that the GUI is user friendly, but extensive. The router itself has proven highly reliable over the years. It is the best bang for the buck I have ever found.
