a litttle help

first off let me tell you what i have in place now, i have dsl comming into are accouting office with a linksys wrt54gs router conneting 3 wired computers to the dsl and then i have a linksys repeater set up to boost signal to a linksys wet54g bridge that is in are office in another building about 300 ft away. are signal out here is ok, the main problem is with the router, i have upgraded the firm ware many times and still have the issue of it droping the wireless side, the only way to get the wireless network back up is to power cycle each unit .....could anyone recomend a better set up, cost is not too much of an issue just great reliabilty

im looking at the cisco 1231 g router
thanks

You may want to stay away from Linksys as they are less reliable (since) Cisco bought them. I have had better luck with Dlink for lowend networking hardware.

I have had many problems with those exact linksys routers. They had a couple different board revisions as well as firmware revisions, and I haven't found one that is completely stable. I have seven of them in my one office and it took me a good couple days of changing firmwares and configurations to get them to work properly.


Dlink is a good lower cost brand. I'm personally partial to Netgear for low to mid-level networking equipment.

As long as your topology meets your current bandwidth needs, I would keep the setup the same, just replace the equipment with more robust devices.

If I may suggest,

-a Netgear VG318 for your firewall/switch/wireless (also has VPN capabilities), OR a FWG114P firewall/switch/wireless that has a built in USB print server
-a Netgear WG302 for both your wireless repeater and as the bridge to your other office
