+ - Small router reliability

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "I've been having bad luck with small routers for home/small business use. My old Belkin was requiring a reset multiple time a day. I was given a Netgear wireless four port, the same model as I had at work. The Netgear at work kept freezing until I put it on top of a fan, which worked for about a year. The one at home never made it on a fan and is now starting to lock up. Googling hasn't been particularly helpful, and most of the review sites don't/can't look at long term reliability (at least a couple years, please?). I just need an 8 port router for normal home/office use that doesn't cost $500. I don't really need wireless. Recommendations for/against? Should I just roll the dice? Thanks"
