    Default WiFi router within Rs4000

    I need a new WiFi router but need some suggestions from forum members who know more about routers, so that I can get the best one. The size of the property I live in is around 1000 square feet, and I need the WiFi connection to be used in all rooms in the house.

    My budget is Rs4000 in which I think there would be a good choice of WiFi routers.

    zyxel, linksys, belkin, netgear, etc. all are pretty good.

    for sake of saving a lot of hair pulling, and frustration, let me warn you that the dlink routers available today have a very stupid and confusing UI. routers themselves are as good as any. just the confusing UI makes me wanna smash them with a sledgehammer. I have nothing against dlink, just that their UI sux.

    TP-Link TD-W8968. Dual antenna, easy to configure and supports both ADSL and 3G/EVDO USB modems with automatic switch-over.

    D-link routers that have a USB modem slot will mostly take only Dlink usb modems unless stated otherwise so avoid them if you are going to buy one with usb modem compatability.

    TP-Link seems to be doing a good job these days as Panchabhut mentioned above.

    The TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router is a good choice to go for. This is a dual band router and has two USB ports.

    Linksys E1200 will be a good bet

    How good do Linksys routers perform?

    I also have Linksys router with in-built antenna, their range for Wifi is not as good as TP-Link 8968 (which also I have), which has two 5 dB antenna.

    I use a Netgear router, and its been working fine for 3 years. My previous router was also a Netgear router and that lasted for a good 7 years, reasons for it getting ruined was rain ad it was placed in the shaft so provide signal to the other rooms.

    I second the opinion on the Linksys E1200, I dont own one but my friend does and it performs very well, I think he has had it for a good two years now.

    is it only a wifi router? do you have a separate internet connection modem, like a broadband cable modem or a dsl modem?
    or do you require an adsl + wifi router?

    adsl+wifi routers are available within 2000 bucks. brands to go for are linksys, netgear, belkin, zyxel, etc. I recently purchased a zyxel adsl+wifi router for 17xx.

    the square footage of your premises do not matter. wifi signals lose strength due to walls and partitions. if centrally located, like in the passage / near a bedroom door, you might get a decent signal everywhere, but put the router next to a wall, and the signal will drop off like a rock off a cliff.
