    Recommend Wi-Fi router

    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a Wi-Fi router that works well with the SqueezeBox?
    Luckilthe distance between the router and SqueezeBox won't be far but as
    i have to buy the router from new i may as well get a recommened one.

    I am running a Windows setup.

    Thanks

    I use an Orinoco RG-1100 base station that works well. This doesn't
    have routing capability so it's probably not what you want. A friend
    just bought a Linksys WRT54G (an all-in-one box that does include a
    router) and reported back good sucess with his new Squeezebox.

    I was frustrated by wireless dropouts from our player in the
    kitchen while cooking with the microwave oven. I bought a pair of
    Phonex Neverwire 14s (powerline networking) for this player and
    couldn't be happier. They are very spiffy units and I'd recommend
    them for people having wireless problems who don't want to run cat5
    cable. One possible issue is that there doesn't seem to be an
    interoperability standard for powerline networking as there is with
    wireless so you may be limited to gear from one manufacturer.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a Linksys WRT54G. They are fairly cheap (from Amazon), but
    incredibly versatile. It runs Linux firmware, and there are are various
    hacks about which really opens up the functionality, such as packet
    shaping (QoS).
