Do you want a 3G/4G router, a WiFi router, or both in one router?

I was looking for a wi-fi router. Currently have an old Lynksis.

I use a CradlePoint MBR1200 gigabit router, which is a little bit upscale, and carries a higher price, but does almost everything you'd want; including has excellent quality of service for VoIP traffic.

The main thing is to try to find a router that provides good quality of service for VoIP traffic.

WOW... that is a little pricey at around $270-300 for a router!

I would think this one:

or this one :

both under $100, would be more than adequate.

If you have a spare computer lying around unused, you can use Astaro (www.astaro.com) for a router and it won't cost you a dime.

I would purchase a Router that has Wireless N Wi-Fi, and Router gigabit ethernet LAN. (It isn't becasue you will need the Gigabit speed, but if you purchase a Gigabit router, you will probably will be assured to get a more up to date router, with the latest design).
