There was a time when all routers were ugly boxes designed only to perform. Looks played no importance because it was normal to relegate them to the back of the closet or tucked away in the corner below your desk. Out of sight, out of mind. About 5 years ago things started to change. Design became valuable even for the oft’ dejected little router. Companies like Netgear and Belkin started redesigning the ubiquitous little box but with more sex. Now they were good looking enough to be proudly displayed alongside your computer and media center.
