    Router recommendations in the $40 - $60 price range

    Right now I'm using a D-Link that I won years ago from work. It sat in the box for years until I finally had to use it... and it's a POS. Always dropping my connection. Plus, the setup software is terrible and actually makes it harder to establish a connection. Any recommendations for a replacement? I don't need anything fancy. Just something reliable with solid range.

    What do you want to use it for? Media? Gaming? Just the WEBZ?
    Niagra.

    Mostly for the interwebs, Netflix, and World of Warcraft. Every so often, when the moon is just right, I'll jump on some Xbox Live.

    I have a Netgear and it does the job for me. This is the one I have NETGEAR - RangeMax Dual-Band Wireless-N Router with 4 Ethernet Ports - WNDR3400-100NAS but it's out of your range.

    I almost got this one which the reviews are good and it's in your price range.

    It's and older router, but it seems to still be the best one under $60.

    Newegg.com - Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)

    The WNR2000 does look very good. Plus it's available at my local Best Buy so no shipping charges.

    Is it tricky to install the custom firmware? I'm betting it isn't but I'm also completely clueless when it comes to wireless. I'm with Comcast right now. Would that be a problem?

    Nah, it's super easy. I am also with comcast. It isn't an issue at all. Just follow the instructions on the site and you are good to go. Also, you don't have to install the custom firmware. The firmware it comes with is just fine, but I have a problem with wanting to hack/improve everything that I own.
