We originally asked D-Link for its popular DI-604 for this roundup. But the company said that the product has been discontinued and replaced with the EBR-2310. This new router has essentially the same guts, but is housed in a new black and silver enclosure.
It features UPnP support as well as substantial firewall and content filtering options, even though it fails to pass muster in the performance benchmarking arena. The router comes with 8MB of RAM and 1MB of flash memory and with firmware running on a Marvell 88E6218.

The administrative panel to control the router's settings is well laid out, with separate user and administrator logins. A user may view the current router settings but not change them, while an administrator may both view and change the settings. D-Link's website includes a handy emulator of the router's control panel which can be explored here. The administrative panel also contains several handy tools that can be used to analyze network performance, such as a cable tester, a ping utility, and the stats of the LAN and WAN connections.
