Reliable wired router for a hotel

Reliable wired router for a hotel

Reliable wired router for a hotel

I'm looking for a reliable wired (not wireless) router for a hotel operation ... around 150 rooms.

They've been using cheap Netgear routers that continually lock up and requiring power-cycling, or eventually die completely.

Does any one have a recommendation for a reliable router? I don't need anything fancy like VPN or gigabit capability, just something that can serve out DHCP addresses for 100 or so people with out locking up every couple of days.

I've been looking at Linksys and Dlink ... any one have specific make/model they recommend?

RE: Reliable wired router for a hotel

For a resonably priced midrange router, you might look at a Netopia Router.

RE: Reliable wired router for a hotel

If you're looking at Linksys, then you'll want to look at their business-class equipment. It's on a separate website:

If reliability is your primary issue, the Netopia that Crowtalks suggested is a good choice. Many of the telco's use them for their DSL lines because they're not expensive and fairly reliable.

However, if you've got the money in the budget, I would consider a Cisco router. Either the 800 or 1800 series would do the trick.
