Hey all! It's been a long time since I last visited G2G, glad it's still going strong :)

Anyways, I am sick of this thing. Every time my current router gives me some issues and I decide on getting a new good solid one, it starts working properly again. It is the reason why I have stuck with it all the time, apart from procrastination/being lazy. But it recently died on me again and this time I won't bother at all, I'm just gonna get myself a new one.

I've only done a rather short search, but I found the legendary Linksys WRT54GL and the D-Link DIR-600 which is also under consideration. Which one would you guys suggest and WHY?

Something else I would like to be able to do is to be able to host mini game servers. Sometimes I create a game online on my PC and me and a bunch of other guys kill time, usually in Quake3 and Counter-Strike. I've seen routers that cannot do this even if you get all the settings right, so consider this to be another requirement.

Also, if you guys have some other suggestions, post them here, especially if you're using them and they've proven to be [bleep] good. i don't intend to spend much, probably US$80 at most. My primary needs are decent built-in features, good easy to use software and superb performance (ofcourse). I don't need stuff like wireless-N etc but it's a plus if I can get them in this price range.

Thanks in advance.
