Hi Guys,

Completed my WHS install last weekend and have managed to get all 7 of our neighbours and friends all on and backed up ( Pretty painless ).

I am interetsed in the WEB interface option for remote access and I currently have the give away D-Link 502t cheapy router which works as a router, it also has uPnp but WHS says it is not  supported on my router. anyway's i was looking at replacing soon anyway and what better time than when a Microsoft product tells you to LOL ... Has any one got a good suggestion for a replacment router. I have looked at the linksys as I use one of the WRT to broadcast from my roof, but was interested in any one elses experiences that are running WHS. Our house is 2 storey and although  I get wireless any where, the signal is slightly weaker in my lounge and thought if i was getting a new router i might as well get it wireless as well to help strengthen my signal downstairs where the router will be placed.

Cheers in advance.

P.S. And yes i have checked the microsoft compatability chart however prefer to get user experiences.

I'm afraid I'm using an even older D-Link 302G with the relevant ports manually forwarded (works just fine), but I did spot a thread over at wegotserved.co.uk that had a list of ones known to actually work. May not all be relevant in NZ of course.

You can use any router. Just forward ports 80, 443 and RDP to your WHS.
