This since that isn't a real cisco product. If it was, then always pick cisco.z

This. I had high hopes that Cisco would improve the Linksys products. I'm still waiting.

This, then put DD-WRT on it.

ETA: Nevermind, get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833162031. Gigabit LAN ftw! Also, put DD-WRT on it.

DD-WRT is the default firmware.

Well then it must be changed! Put OpenWRT on it!

I recently bought a new Cisco router, and it is far superior to what was supposed to be a comparable Netgear router.

Just my experiences, I'm sure others will disagree.

Nope, I agree that Netgear is crap.

Netgear hardware and software is garbage from my experience.

I'm not a power user like most of the people here, but my last Netgear router lasted nearly 4 years, and the current one is at about 1.5. I've never had a problem.

I've done Linksys for many many years now and it seems every year or two they die. Got a Netgear dual band N last time and it seems to be great. Has much better range than any Linksys I've ever had and I can't imagine it's going to die any sooner than all my Linksys ones have. So I guess I'm a Netgear convert.
