I was also looking at the Linksys E1200 or E2000 or E4200 as a replacement for the WRT54G. Would one of these be a more modest upgrade?
I have been satisfied with my Linksys CM100 cable modem and Linksys WRT54G wireless router (about 22 mbs down and 1 mbs up). Security settings were pretty straightforward, and the setup worked well with HomeDNS for my WEBCams in my old Dell E520 XP system.
Last night we had a power surge that fried the computer and the cable modem. I got a temporary replacement modem, but apparently the wireless router was also hit, so I will have to replace both.
My question is whether there is any reason to move to a more modern system or possibly a combo modem/router. Someone recommended a Motorola SBG 6580, but I'm wondering if I would likely see any real improvement in performance, and whether I would just be asking for setup headaches. Right now I am leaning towards trying to find identical replacements, but I would welcome any suggestions. <div><div>Charles
