I just upgraded to the Gen 4 system, the Linksys WRT54GS worked fine with the HN7000s but would not work when they fired up the Gen4. What router is recommended to work with the Gen4, I will just purchase another new one, time to upgrade.

The WRT54GS should still work, but I suggest getting a router that supports IPv6 and IPv4. Make sure your router is not setup to give out or use the 192.168.0.xxx address space for your LAN, make sure you set it up to use 192.168.1.xxx instead. Otherwise conflicts will occur since the modem still gives out 192.168.0.1 as a WAN side DNS.

From my understanding at least one user has reported that a Netgear N600 works great.

Linksys E1000 with DDWRT v24-sp2 installed
Linksys E1200 is also known to work, as well as the E2500.

Hi Mark, I just got the Gen 4 upgrade a few days ago and the Netgear600 I have works well with the new Gen 4 system.

Mark mine is the WNDR3400v2. I've had it for about a year and once it was set up I haven't had to adjust anything since. Maybe once every couple of months it will drop connection but I power it down and back up and it reconnects without issue. It has been very stable for my system. When the Gen 4 was installed it never missed a beat. The best I can recall, when the new modem was installed, I turned my laptop on and had connection right away.
