    A good place to start would be the Mandriva Hardware Database - it's not an exhaustive list, but the few times i've used it, it has been completely accurate.

    Hope this helps

    If you are using one that has an ethernet connection you should be fine with any. The problem is moreso with USB modems. I run a ZyXel router on ethernet, and it's great, OS on my end is transparent and all config is done through a web based tool. It is at a local IP address I can access directly from this side but is firewalled to the internet.

    All routers are OS independant as for usb...sorry you'll have to go through steps of installing drivers.

    what is the brand and model of router that you already own?

    any non usb (ethernet)router/modew will work no Questions asked.... hovever with a usb router/modem you will have to install drivers if they are available.
