Wireless Routers under $120

Trendnet Wireless N Firewall Router TEW-631BRP

For just a little more than $100, the Trendnet TEW-631BRP is a good all-around router. The TEW-631BRP has three antennas and is roughly the size of a hand. As with the Belkin model, Wi-Fi speeds were only about 80 Mbps. Still, the setup process, which uses Network Magic, was fairly intuitive and fast. We’re not keen on the matching TEW-621PC notebook card; it didn’t work at all with a Dell Latitude D630, and it caused a Lenovo ThinkPad 161 to crash several times.
