mothers day around the corner. her wireless router is crap and the signal cuts every 10 minutes, idk how she can live with it like that.

doesn't need to be overly fancy or expensive, but decent quality.

Probably should list your ISP.

I use century link (qwest) here and I know only certain models are compatible with them.

Price range?

I guess I'd like to stay somewhere around the 60 dollar range but if there's something for a few more bucks that's really worth it can spend more

Should be able to get a Netgear from BestBuy for 45.00. I use these in several deployments, quick easy setup. Is the Modem still working or is it part of the router?


NETGEAR - Wireless-N Router

Model: WNR2000-100NAS

Went from a Belkin that I had to reset several times a week to an Asus N56U that I haven't had to reset once since buying it a 8 months ago.

I had a Linksys Wireless-G for years until I upgraded to a Netgear Wireless N. Never had an issue with either.

Linksys can be found pretty cheap. It's won't get as strong as a boost as an N router though:

Here's what I have now:
