Default Router

Hi, Anyone have any suggestions for a basic low cost router to work with a SB4100 cable modem? There will be only 2 PCs on it. Both PCs have ethrnet cards installed already. Thanks, Tom W

Yes, I agree....
I would normally say Linksys for a SoHo LAN environment due to the functionality you can get out of the routers, however right now D-Link has incredible deals....Their D-604 model is $45 and has all the functionality you'd need within a tight (8-workstation or less or so) setup like Remote management, unlimitied port forwarding, etc.

I have Lynksys wireless at my house and my cousin has a Dlink network at his. Either are good but for the prices i would go with Dlink now too.
