Hello,

Currently I have one Netgear WAG302.  It works good and is easy to use but I have to reboot it about once a month.  Does anyone know of a good reliable access point for around $200?

It has to be easy to use like netgear.

Thanks,
Kurt

Once a month? I have to manually reboot my netgear RP614 at least once a week, but thats better than before the BIOS update.

If update is available, update the bios on the Netgear first to see if you get better results. But even without the update, once a month is from my viewpoint, lucky (well luckier than me).

I need one that supports WDS.  I wouldn't mind paying more for one that didn't need to be rebooted.  We only have three users on the WAG302.

I think I'll just stick with netgear.  They had a new firmware for WAG302 that fixes occasional system crashes so hopefully it's fixed.
