What is the deal with newer routers today? The last time I bought a router (Belkin G) was about 2 yrs ago. I configed it just the way I wanted it. I was using NetMeeting and mIRC with a file sharing script with NO problem. I need to replace it now because as all routers do eventyally, it started to drop connections. I had bought another Belkin AND a Netgear and taken them both back because no matter how I config the settings (enabled DMZ, disabled the firewall, set up the port forwarding) they will NOT work! Do I need to buy one specific? Spend more money? I just don't get it? I expect my router to do what "I" want it to do, not what the router thinks is best for me. I dont need all the "security". I have my own firewall and internet security. Can someone shed some light on the subject? Any suggestions would be appreciated and I will get what ever router will allow me to config it my way no matter the cost.
Thanks in advance.

Most all User Manuals can be found on the router manufacturer's web site in the Support section. Scan through the manuals for the routers you are considering to see if they satisfy you.

I am setting it up the way its supposed to be set up (per the manuals), along with 30 min on the phone with Netgear tech support who knew nothing. I'm not a novice and this is about the 4th router I've had to set up. Im really disgusted. I need a router, not a fortress.
Thanks.
