So, the poll about Windows versions got me curious. What sort of router do you use? For those of you using Cisco, Linksys w/ Third-Party Firmware or Other, please provide details. (I'm curious!)

I've got a Linksys WRT54GL running Tomato 1.25.1720

Either a Skil or Makita.

Oh, wait.

Cisco 600-series with CBOS;
Cisco 4000M+ with IOS;
Linksys WRT54G with Tomato.

Every router I've used has burned out after 30-60 days. So my partner's computer connects directly to the DSL modem and my computers connect to my 3G cell phone via bluetooth.

I'm running a D-link DI-604 with stock firmware connected to a Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch.

Linksys w/ Stock Firmware.

Frankly, I had no idea there was even a "Buffalo" router. : O What an interesting name for a router I say : P

Linksys WRT54G...Finally something I could use a Best Buy gift card for...

Prior to the Linksys, I had a Netgear WGR614 which was horrendous. It had to be reset at least once a week. It would just randomly drop its signal.

I would love to try a 3rd Party firmware, but I'm too afraid that the router would get bricked if something went wrong.

I have a Netgear DG834PN, with a print server connected (which we randomly got one day from Virgin for being 'loyal' customers)

And I have a Buffalo WBMR-G125 which I bought myself, yet have not managed to succesfully connect it :(

Kind of a redundancy here as Cisco owns Linksys, so I have a Linksys Cisco wrt54g

I've had ...

Linksys with stock firmware, linksys with 3rd party firmware, Dlink and Netgear ... and they all fail within a year. EXACTLY a year.

WRT54GS v1.1 (SO HARD TO FIND ONE OF THESE!!) running DD-WRT Mega (yes, Mega!!)
WRT54GS v5 running DD-WRT micro
WRT54G v4 running DD-WRT micro

This doesn't count but my managed switch's firmware is from 2001!

I use a Billion 7300RA as an ADSL2+ gateway, combined with an Apple Airport Express for Wireless (and audio sharing, plus printer hosting) and a Linksys PAP2 for VOIP.

I'm running some Actiontec Cable Modem/Router furbished by Verizon. Has some pretty nice features and good broadcasting power except I do want to get a new antenna for it.

It would seem that Actiontec makes some pretty expensive and high end stuff. If only they were more common. That is connected to a 3com 40 port 10/100 switch and a couple netgear Gigabit switches, one is an 8 port the other a 5. The 5 port actually goes between the modem and 40 port, and also connects to the 8 port in the server bank.

I use a Belkin N-MIMO Router, connected to a Linksys 24-Port Network Switch. Capable of fast wireless network speeds, up to around 380mbps and ethernet up to 1GBPS =D. We need the switch, we have a lot of networked stuff...
