What brand of router should I purchase to network the kids crappy Dell to the cable modem? The Dell will have to share the connection with my mini.

I like the Makita 5" table mount, but my brother swears that a Bosch will last longer in the years ahead.

Oh, sorry, wrong router. Nevermind.

Although the Dell might improve with a little routing...

My other brain is hung like a horse too.

I dig Makita, but I'm more partial to Milwaukee.

For those other router thingees I really love my Linksys WRT54G.

If you want wireless and features like QoS and parental controls, the Linksys WRT54G is excellent, otherwise, whatever, they're all essentially the same.

Depends on what you use, personally I love my Airport Express, but I use wireless on all my machines, obviously if you don't then thats not for you...

Well, you obviously need a Cisco 12816 router with 1.28 Tbps switching capacity and dual OC-192 uplinks! I just don't see how anybody could live without one!
