Router Problems

Can anyone recommend a wireless router? Anything other than a D-Link product?

I’m tired of D-Link. I’ve owned two of them, and its always the same nonsense. A power outage, or someone re-arranges the wires, and I have to spend 25 minutes getting the connection re-activated. Its a matter of hit or miss pressing the same button over and over and over and over while trying to see if the browser finally comes up. (I don’t need a wireless router myself – but the Ex-GF likes to have a wireless connection to her Mac.) Last night it got worse. We had some electrical work done in the hovel. I spent an hour trying to get the router up with no success. This morning I’ve been trying and trying. At this point I don’t care any more. Or rather, I do. I’m having very uncharitable thoughts about D-Link for wasting my time.

And if you’re wondering why I don’t call customer service – I’ve called D-Link customer service in the past and have come to believe the primary gain to calling them is adding 30 minutes to the amount of time it takes to get the thing operational again. I don’t need those kinds of benefits.

I finally connected this computer directly to the modem, but keeping it that way is not an option. I don’t want to waste any more time. Can anyone suggest a router? Anything other than D-Link?
