HI Everyone

Can anyone make a recommendation for a good ADSL router thats less than $500. It needs to have a good firewall and be reliable.


Thanks

What features do you need, other than having an ADSL modem, and a firewall? Assuming you want an al-in-one device, I would go either Asus DSL-N66U or Draytek DV130.

ubergeeknz: How about http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=MODAS0660&name=ASUS-DSL-N66U-ADSL2+-VDSL2+-Fiber-Ready-Wireless-N


That's meant to be quite a high performance router. It also has some kind of VPN support, so you can VPN your entire connection to Astrill or similar.

Fritzbox seems good, but Snap seem to be the main place that use them. They're fairly pricey.

It depends what your requirements are. Your question is akin to asking what car under $50000 is best - there is no simple answer.

They have the worlds worst WiFi. We used to use them for UFB trial.

The Fritz!Box that I'm selling on Geekzone :)

You could also buy a Draytek DV130 and an EdgeRouter Lite for under $500 and you've have a pretty bullet proof setup.  Not the easiest to set up though, the EdgeRouter Lite is not plug and play but not overly difficult.
