What's a good router to get?

My Netgear WNDr3700v2 just died on me today and I'm looking to get a new one. I'm not sure which ones are the good ones out there and I would prefer it to be $200 or below.

You really shouldn't be spending more than $30-50 for a router. I got the Asus RT-N10P yesterday and it's been working good so far. Very fast and easy to setup and the admin interface is well designed and has a lot of features.

All you need is a modem, PC, and ISP. Everything else = waste.

Some people have more than 1 machine they want to connect to the internet.

Your thinking is very narrow minded.

Generally I've been treated well by Netgear

Just make sure to hook up your Router + Modem to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)

My old roomies were surprised by how useful it was.

While raiding in WoW back in the days, any blackouts / brownouts / power surges, they just kept on trucking, not a single hiccup in gaming perf due to router / modem going down.

They even continued raiding while during a brown out where he forgot to hook his monitor to the UPS, he had the rest of his PC going, so he played without his monitor for an entire minute.

The rest of the guild didn't notice anything was wrong until he said something.

They thought he was raiding as normal.
