Default Which one of these routers is better?

Netgear WNR3500
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....egories&ks=960

Linksys WRTWRT310N
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....&ref=16&loc=02


I have the WNR3500 right now and I'm not really satisfied with it at all, there's a NOTICEABLE difference in internet speed on my computer. Also, it drops connection quite often - I've never had a dropped connection when my computer was ran directly through my modem, so I know it's the router that's dropping not my modem. I called Netgear and told them this and they had me go back into the manual setup [since I have Vista 64bit] and they had me turn off the SPI Firewall and change some numbers from 1500 to 1400 an claimed that would stop the connection dropping - didn't work though.

Or if anyone has another suggestion in their opinion of what the best router in the price range of 120-140 is let me know.

Hmm, maybe I'll have to pick that one up then - because the internet is noticeably slower with this router.
