I need to buy a router that has a firewall, DHCP, and port forwarding that works well a Netgear GS716T switch.

Right now I'm considering these options:

Or this:

Any comments, suggestion or other products that are under $100?

Perhaps a Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT firmware is something worth looking into, if you haven't done so already?

Ive had a Linksys, Belkin and Netgear, the Linksys lasted 2 years, the Belkin was less than 18 months and now im on a Netgear.

I recommend the Netgear, easy to use, set up and seems to work well!

And what the difference between these two:
Up to 11.5 Mbps WAN-to-LAN vs 2.1 Mbps for 3DES throughput
