Hi,
Wireless router doesn't pending for BolehVPN. BolehVPN is the connection to the the outside world (WAN) while your router is the gateway to your local Area Network (LAN).

That's right. Nothing to do with us :D HOWEVER if you get a Belkin one......prepare to suffer as it hangs when you p2p on it.

I have good experiences with the D-Links and have been using the DIR-655

Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 (sricom lowyat sells rm175 lastime, limited stock)
Linksys WRT54G v1-v4 / WRT54GS v1-v4 / WRT54GL v1.x (bit expensive, hard to find)

these router are very good when p2p after flash to 3rd party firmware like dd-wrt / tomato / openwrt

Check out Linksys WRT160N V1 (NOT V2, it uses a different chipset.  V1 uses Broadcom and V2 uses Ralink). 
I bought this model to replace my old Linksys WRT54GS 1.0.  Flashed it to DD-WRT and its running for almost a month with 24/7 heavy Internet activity, VPN, Skype and without any reboots.  ;D

DD-WRT is available at http://www.dd-wrt.com/

Very good indeed for P2P.

Lies :) My Belkin is on 24/7 and the only reset needed is when Screamyx decides it's cool to try making it do disco lighting (dead connects).
