I see different reviews everywhere I go. I have had bad luck with LinkSYS wired routers (3 failed within a few years). The routers I had would drop connections, ect, ect.
When my brother got his laptop a few years ago he got a Microsoft wireless router to replace our great Belkin wired router. Believe it or not the Microsoft router has been nothing but reliable over the past few years.
I want to give Netgear routers a try, but at this point the MS router has given me no reason to switch.
