I am looking for a good, inexpensive router with qos features. this will be used for connecting a remote user at home with the corporate phone system. the remote office will only have 1 phone. first i wanted to go with the linksys rt042 but i have heard several bad things about it. what should i get? i am looking to spend about $100.

    Have a look at the Zyxel routers. I dont know if they specifically support QOS but they do support packet prioritising so if you define the VoIP traffic as high priority it does the same thing as QOS.

    Most of the Linksys boxes support basic QOS - either by protocol or by port # - so you could plug the VoIP box into port 1 and give it high priority (I've got a PAP2 + WRT54G running that way w/o problems).
