Unless I see something radically different in the low end router market,
I continue to recommend the Linksys units based on my experience both in
wired and wireless. The G technology is relatively new, but in both
cases, the flaw was in remote access, which is a biggie. 

However, my experience with Netgear products and customer service has
been very positive. I had damaged by PC card and dongle cord, and not
only was I able to speak to an English speaking human and was able to
close the transaction quickly to my satisfaction. 

BTW: I started with a Linksys BEFSR41 that ran flawlessly 24x7. I then
obtained a wireless BEFW11S4 that has run with zero problems 24x7 for
the past couple of years. I usually leave the wireless disabled when I
am not using it.
