What type of router do you recommend?

This depends on what type of user you are. If you have 2 computers or less, and no other devices connecting to your wired or wireless router, just about any router will do. However, if you run a wireless router, have many devices such as laptops, iPhones, iPads and other WiFi connected devices, you can quickly overload your router from a usable simultaneous connections point of view. There is a nice article on www.PCMech.com by Rich Menga that discribes this situation and how to deal with it. Click here for the article. In addition, here is a website that rates common home routers. We suggest that homes and business that have multiple devices accessing the network, choose a router that has a maximum Simultaneous Connections rating of 2000 or more. Routers in that class generally cost $80 and up.
