Linksys is not too bad. Only had minor experience with them, but they have been good.

If your not experienced at setting up a router manually get a Dlink! Take it from a tech support person who deals with customers setting up third party routers. Customers tell me that the Dlink just works out of the box. The most troublesome router to set up is a Linksys. The horror stories of customers dealing with Linksys Tech support is enough to keep me from buying one. Personally I use a Belkin that I bought at Best Buy for $43 with tax. It took less than ten minutes to set up with the wireless security enabled and has served me well for the last eight months.

i tend to trust either netgear or linksys (linksys is owned by cisco...and they've been making routers since the beginning of time...so they do tend to know their stuff)...but in general the technologies are beginning to merge...so...the brands are having less differences between them

I would say which has the best features. You might find a cheaper Linksys which is 50 Mbps and a netgear with 100 Mbps. Just becuase it's cheaper, you would naturally get the Linksys. Well, you could have had double the connection with the Netgear. You need to find routers with the features you need. If they are both identical, or near identical, then we can compare prices.
