The Cisco/Linksys is a little more complex.

Linksys are owned by Cisco, and their technology and R&D is what goes into the low end, consumer routers - the little black shiny plastic things like the WRT120N - ?30-60 (Fine for home use)

Cisco also produce with Cisco R&D a small business range SRPB520 series - ?100-?150 mark (Strange products - too expensive, and very limited)

However I wouldn't call either of those a Cisco router.

The proper Cisco kit starts with the 800 series, and then moves up to the 1800, and 2800 series routers - ?300 - ?5000 - When most people in IT are talking about Cisco routers it is this range of routers they will be talking about.

I'm running a Cisco 861 ISR here.

no NAT????

i had alot of issues with my xbox and this router, all cause a NAT issue. I had to disable upnp and then port forward abunch of ports. And if you have more than one xbox you will more issues with NAT. It does have NAT but doesnt support it very much. Install DD-WRT and problem solved.

It's probably just lame uPnP support, if it works when you manually port forward that's a pretty good hint.

I'm using miniupnpd on my router (Works fine with the 360), it does uPnP and NAT-PMP. Unfortunately while it does port forwarding and pokes holes in the firewall, it doesn't talk to the v6 firewall, so I still have to manually configure ports and allow them just for v6 traffic (Useful for some things and not others, I don't want UDP going out over my v6 tunnel for example, but TCP is fine)

Edit: I will say though, NAT-PMP looks so much simpler than uPnP. NAT-PMP uses like 3 different packets to do everything, uPnP relies on other specifications and does everything through XML, but it also does a lot more than just port forwarding.

TrendNet Wireless N Gigabit router. POS, I know. But no real problems with it to speak of, other than the incredibly bad English used in the options menus.

ASUS WL-520gU

it's a pretty good Wireless-G router running DD-WRT as it's got 4MB flash with 16MB of RAM

i have had a uptime of 4xx days (with DD-WRT) on it and it would have went longer if it where not for the power going out.

At home I have a BT Business Hub (2Wire 2700HGV). I also have a Netgear WGR614 router but I can't use it at home because it's a cable router, and we only have ADSL.

I am also really really considering getting the new AMPED WIRELESS!!! router that has USB sharing and dual band!!! I'll first get a larger capacity USB HDD and then get that router and hook it up to it! can't wait!

Are you sure you don't work for Amped Wireless? :laugh:
