Is your wireless hardware reliable
  v1.0 Posted at 23/10/2014 4:31 PM by Christopher Briggs
When purchasing new network hardware you should always choose the most reliable option. ​

1.    Linksys is the best.
Google Answers helped in our decision - Linksys is the safer choice based on user ratings. http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=2588 

2.    Netgear is OK.
The hardware works, the drivers work, and the support is excellent. However they tend to be “simple” devices. They generally lack advanced features and are aimed more toward the home user market. 

3.    DLink is NOT recommended. We will never buy this brand ever again
They tend not to last longer than the warranty period

It is recommend keeping the firmware on all routers up to date  in order to mitigate against security vulnerabilities​.
