I've used (more like "tried") various Linksys Routers (etc) at various
sites, and was EXTREMELY unhappy with them. I've never understood why
reviews/comparisons of them have been so positive. Been in touch with
Linksys on some of the issues. No plans to try them again anytime soon!
Tried others, and, generally, have been happiest with D-Link devices.

Generally, Yes - just get the "appropriate" model.
