Wireless Router for 10-Person Office

We had previously been using a cheap DLink 628 Router in our office when we had 3-4 people and it worked no problem, however we recently moved to a new office with a 30mbit fiber connection and now have about 10 people on the network.  Most are wired, but some need wireless.  The router clearly is not cut out for this and needs to be reset a few times a day.  As soon as I recycle the power everything always works great until it freezes up again.   What is my best bet to upgrade to here?  I'd like something that is easy to manage (I've read that some of the cisco options in the sub-$1000 range are difficult to manage).  Thanks!

I'd highly recommend anything by Sonicwall. I'd go with a SonicWall TZ210 Wireless-N for a small network like that. Sonicwall products are easy to configure and are very stable, lightyears better than a DLink...


Look here to see all the available options.


We use Cisco WRVS4400N with 10+ users, wired and wireless, without any problems.

This router also support VPN.

There are many wireless routers (and probably as many views). Here is what I use:

Main router - Linksys/Cisco RV042 / RV082. This is an inexpensive, fairly easy to set up, fast, business level wired router. This should readily and easily service your wired users.

Wireless - I use a Netopia 3387WG commercial wireless router. This is not as easy to set up but I like the extended range, long term reliability and freedom from issues. I might to reset the modem, the wired router and or the wireless maybe once in 3 months. I think the ISP is at fault but it is a really low level annoyance.

Total cost of the above is less than $500. That it is split will tell you quickly if only wireless goes out, or whether the whole system is out.

There are easy to follow instructions available to hook up a wireless router as an access point if you go this route. Wireless access points are more expensive than wireless routers.
