Default wireless router for office

Looking for wireless router for our office to share 6 Computers. I have seen D-Link router and seems to be alright. Do you have any suggestion other than D-Link router.

I would say 3com is good, but d-link would be an equally good choice I would say.

If you have the cash, go with Cisco AP-1100s for B or 1200s for B & G.

If you have an Active Directory (Server '00 or '03 from MSFT) backend running your authentication for things like fileshares, you can get a Cisco Access Control Server to use a nice encrypted protocol (whose acronym escapes me) to do wireless and have it authenticate to your AD backend for ease of use and security.

It's a pretty nice end-to-end solution, except for the fact that you have to use Cisco cards for it and they run about $200 a pop.

Yah, I spent my entire summer integrating the above solution into an enterprise and it was fun to learn and awesome, because Cisco is Cisco.

Meaning that they have all these awesome features that no one else has but it costs through the nose (ex. they had Power over Ethernet like a year before anyone else). Lots of fun - lemme know if you need help with it.

Oh, and the encryption protocol I was referring to above is called LEAP - Lightweight Enterprise Authentication Protocol, or EAP, which is LEAP without the L.

Hi linusthefish,

I also would like to setup in my office. If I need any help I would contact you. Also do you work in any datacenter?

For wifi D-link is my personal preference.

All my kit at home is D-link and the range is excellent.

I've tested d-link head to head against linkysys kit and d-link came out on top by far.
