Major network update!

My new router is a Cisco Meraki Z1 (review)

I also have two Aruba Networks RAP109 access points as well as a Meraki MR12 AP.

Netgear has recently pushed out some firmware updates to fix security problems for older routers like the WNDR3700 and it's derivatives, so any of you who are using older Netgear routers like myself should go to their website for the latest firmware if you aren't already using third-party firmware that has been recently updated.

I second that.

What is a good cheap router? I have a D-Link DIR-601 which IIRC cost $30. The wireless is a bit weak but the main reason for getting a replacement is sometimes it loses connectivity & needs rebooting. Anything out there for about $50 with a bit more wireless range?

Please also feel free to submit some tips and tricks to getting better media server performance with your routers as well. I hope this version of this poll turns out better!<br><br><br><br>
To start with I currently have the Amped Wireless R20000G and I really like it.<br>
I have a review up <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://remixedcat.blogspot.com/2013/03/amped-wireless-r20000g-wireless-router.html" target="_blank">here</a> if anyone wants to check it out.<br><br>
Please tell us what you have and generally how your network setup is as well.
Other: Asus DSL-N16U

I did not put high requirements on wifi, as I have full gigabit cabling (former communist building: reinforced walls are good at blocking wifi signals) and a gigabit switch.

Reasons to choose it:
- included DSL modem (no two devices needed to be plugged in)
- has WAN ethernet port (in case I don't use DSL anymore
- has 2 USB ports (1 for printer, 1 for harddisk)

It gives a much better wifi signal than my previous router, but that was a 10 year old Linksys WRT54GC (compact travel router), which nicely surprised me. Multiple connections are rock solid, so I'm very happy with it.
