Default Router dying?

Have a netgear N300, I got up one morning it wouldn't make a connection. Turned off and back on it worked. Next morning same thing, but it wouldn't connect. Plugged the computer into the cable modem and it worked. Left the router off for 24 hours, upgraded the firm ware worked fine yesterday. Get up this morning, router won't connect. Hardware problem I would think, right?

The what to replace it with. I what something with gigabit ports because the wires I have run are cat 6. I might need to find a switch because of the lack of ports as well.

It may be dying, but have you tried DD-WRT?

Is it a WNR2000? Which hardware rev (printed on the back) - v1, v2, v3?

Good Wireless Routers that can be flashed with DD-WRT and be configured as main Wireless Router, or Access Point/Repeater, if needed.

Money is Not an issue. Asus RT-N66U -RT-N66U

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833320091

Best value for the price. Cisco E4200 refurb.

http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Rou...VVviewprod.htm

I want sub $100 and new (I am allergic to refurb.) Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833162070

--------------

I want to spend less and do not care about Giga, and NAS, but need good Wireless.

This is decent Wireless Router with Dual radio.

Cisco E2500 refurb. $35.

http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Rou...VVviewprod.htm

I have an Old Wireless and I want it to benefit from the DualBand Wireless Router.

Rosewill USB $25

Jack, update the link for the E4200 to get the better NCIX US price.

While other vendors get few of these from the same source (Cisco Refurb store) and sell it for few $$ less, they are often Sold out,

As NICX is Now (NCIX Sore at the date and time of this post).

Sorry, we've SOLD OUT of this item at the Surprise Sale price. Please watch for more Surprise Sales in the future.

No, the surprise sale price was much lower. It's still easily in stock at $68.

Thanks for the links. Probably look at the refurb e4200. I like the idea of open source stuff.
