    I'm looking to get a broadband router with 4 port hub to be used with NTLs
    cable modem service. i;m looking at either the Netgear RP614, the Dlink
    DI-604 or the Linksys BEFSR41.

    we're gonna want to use MSN messenger, play games use Kazaa etc - probably
    nothing out of the ordinary.

    any suggestions as to which may be best or are they all pretty much the
    same. i've used other d-link and netgear stuff and always found them to be
    good but i have no eexperience with linksys.

    TIA

    I would suggest downloading the manuals so you can see what sort of
    configuration capabilities the various devices have - some are a lot
    more basic than others, which may be a plus or minus depending on your
    requirements.

    I originally had a Belkin 4 port DSL router, and was frustrated by the way
    it wouldnt allow me to send and receive files and participate in audio video
    in MSN Messenger conversations across the Internet. This was solved with
    the Linksys BEFSR41 router. This is because of UPnP I'm told. Not sure on
    the spec of the other routers you've used but I know for sure the Linksys
    BEFSR41 does support full functionality of MSN Messenger.

    Any of these have a built in print server?
