Topic: Router recommendations for wii u

I have had problems to get a stable internet connection ever since I got my wii u. I´m getting green lights on the connection to my router and to the internet and I have succeded in buying one downloadable game and it worked with the Rayman demo. The problem however is that I get error messages over and over again. My two "successful" downloads took about a weekend each to complete in total since I got "thrown out" all the time and got a red cross showing error. I turned my wii u on and off over and over which resulted in about two percent of the download each time but sometimes nothing at all. I don´t have a slow internet connection so I´m thinking that my router must be the problem (even though it works fine to my wii, computer and phone). It´s a netgear DG834PN and I guess it´s a bit old by now. I have also tried to shut all other devices off without result. So I´m hoping to get some router recommendations that can get my internet connection stable. I also want it to work with netflix but I guess most routers are capable of that.
Big thanks in advance!!!

With my experience with Nintendo systems, I recommend Linksys (Cisco now) or Netgear routers. I can't give you specific models unfortunately.

The one brand I do not recommend is Belkin.

I use the Linksys E1200 and have zero troubles.

I had a Netgear and I could not connect my Wii U to the Internet, after hours of trying. I purchased an inexpensive D-Link router and everything worked well. I do not trust Netgear anymore.

Thanks, maybe I'll try that!

Just get whatever router your internet co. sells. If it's outrageous for whatever reason, get Belkin, but make sure it supports at least 40 mb/s, and g/n wireless. I hate routers and dealing with all the options in them, so I like the plug in and use routers internets companies just give out, or sell for their service.
