    I've always used Linksys modems and wired/wireless routers. Generally they work well although at times the wireless capabilities sometimes are very intermittent, which is very aggravating as I use a Touch, (2) TVs, iTunes for music. Does Linksys make adequate modems/routers for home usage or should I be considering some other brand? Any input is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I use Virgin, so it's their own silver modem that I use:

    However as for the internal router/switch I use Linksys and dLink at home :)

    I use Linksys WAG160N at home and it does the job without issues for six months now.
    I have two desktop PC's hooked up to it and 4 laptops connected via wireless and my Iphone as well.

    Before I had Netgear but that was a "G" generation router which was fine, but not comparable for the current one.

    Linksys is fine - remember they are the "consumer" part of Cisco

    Draytek usually. I have a 2710n at home, and recommend various models to smaller clients depending on their needs.

    At home I've got my broadband through Be*, only just moved in so I'm using their wireless router which is a Thomson.

    I've used D-link and Netgear previously though and not had any problems, we use Drayteks here in the office and again I have no complaints.
