My 12 year old router is near death. It's a linksys wrt54gs and it now overheats after every couple of hours. When it overheats all devices lose the wireless connection I have to turn it off, let it cool down then turn it back on. Can I get some $50-$60 router recommendations? Want something that is reliable and preferably supports up to 4 or more connections.Thanks.

If you can, i would spend a little more. At least $75
$100 will get you a nice one.
You didn't try google, you made that up...

I've been using a WR740N with dd-wrt. I have no problems with 6+ devices connected to the router at the same time. It's $30; they have higher end models you can look into.

Looks good. Anyone have any experience with the N300 antenna version?

Also, what's a good store to get a router from? I'd prefer to order online but this thing can kick the bucket for good at any time. I have a Best Buy, Walmart, Staples, and Sears in my area.

Router in the 70-100$ range Comes with Dual Band. If you don't have an excessive amount of decivces on your network that's always using large amounts of data over it. I wouldn't bother with one so expensive.

One can get a decent router for 30-40 bucks.
