Linksys Router/Firewall

I'm looking for a good quality, not too expensive firewall for a network here. I found this
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satel...=3653822279B03
Is it any good? Anyone know any others?

Thanks

I've got D-Link and so far so good.
Very handy and easy to use.

Linksys is an excellent choice.

I use a very inexpensive Linksys WRT54G Wireless G Router which can be picked up at Tiger for $50.00.

If you want more flexibility and are a fan of open source and Linux (I assume you are or wouldn't be here ), I would recommend the Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Router for around $65.00.

Yes, it is.

Just make sure you upgrade the firmware as soon as you get it, or as soon as you encounter any issues.

OR, upgrade to a third party firmware which is linux based, but do your research before implementing this....
