Hi All,

Looking to replace my O2 Wireless Box II... Keeps changing my settings without appearing to have done so, I think... Ports keep unforwarding, and NAT keeps going back to strict on XBL! Static IP and everything. tried it all. Argh.

I have found a Linksys WAG160N for about £20.

My Dad has a Linksys WRT54GS or something, which has been reliable as a rock, and has plenty of settings for everything you could ever need I think! + easy to set up... So I wanted to stick with Linksys, but now i'm not so sure.

I have been shown a Belkin F5D8636UK4A for a little over £25 too... With a wireless N usb adapter. In reality, I don't think i'd want it sticking out of my laptop all the time, and would settle for G on that anyway... but getting N cause the Xbox Slim supports N too, so.

Anyway, any opinions?

Need advice ASAP if possible, both are not available from my buddy for long.

Matt

dcx is the grand master of bad advice.

However, he is right - Belkin are uniformly ****. Unfortunately, Linksys aint much better in my view. I'd rather buy a very specific subset of Netgear routers off ebay (ie: the GT range which allow custom firmware).

I think Netgear is the best hardware, and although their software ain't up to much, that can be fixed.
