Best Wifi Router for iPhone

Looking to replace my Belkin n+ router. Still having intermittent wifi issues not connecting to the internet after sleeping. Any good recommendations?

FWIW I'm quite happy with Apple's Airport Extreme...

I have both the extreme and express and I am very pleased with them. Never any problems. If your not connecting an external hard drive and have less than 10 things that will connect to the router I highly recommend the airport express. Anything else the extreme even though it's a little pricey.

I had my friend's Airport Extreme on my network a few weeks back to try out. It worked well but the wifi coverage was less than my old belkin n+

But I wouldn't mind getting one if it runs will with the iPhone.

I have the Linksys E3000 (simultaneous dual-band) and it's working flawlessly.

That's interesting. I've never had any problems with range, and both my routers (I have a 2.4 and 5.8) are in the basement.

Interesting. And I've checked to ensure there's no 2.4ghz interference. Mine is in a 2nd floor office.
