Which router?

  Christopher Lewis 12:26 14 Sep 2007

My old router has died so I need a new one. But I think I'm looking for the impossible.

I don't want wireless
I do want a sturdy metal box
A built-in gigabit switch would be nice, 4- or 8-port, but gigabit not essential.

Any ideas?

I forgot to add that I have a cable modem, not ADSL

If you don't want wireless then it sounds like you need a switch rather than a router. I'm not 100% sure if a switch will be okay with a cable modem, you may run into DHCP problems. I'm sure someone on here will clarify.

click here for a few choice, there are some Gigabit and some fast ethernet switches on this link.

Or for a good cable router click here
