    Question Recommendations Needed for Secure Router

    Hi everyone,

    Windows Secrets used to regularly publish a PC Security Baseline. As I recall, it was always in the upper right corner of the home page and listed recommended hardware and software.

    I haven't seen this baseline for a long time, and the latest one I could find in the newsletter was over 3 years ago.

    I'm in the market for a new wireless router and I know that the technology changes so that old recommendations may no longer be valid.

    Are there certain brands or models of routers that are more secure than others, or will I be OK sticking to the major brands.

    Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    I think the router manufacturers have caught up with the requirement to ensure security is properly implemented, so you should be OK with any of the major brands. That said there are still different options available so it is worth checking out features / asking here.

    cheers, Paul
