Which router suits my needs?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Things I do/need

-Under $100
-From NewEgg
-Online gaming
-Web browsing
-Torrenting
-xbox, ps3, 3 computers(max 4 going at once.)

My current router D-Link DGL-4500 has a problem where whenever someone starts to download/or do something else it will start going then crash the whole router. I am pretty sure it is a problem with the NAT and I have tried lots of things to fix it. It also requires a restart every 3 days.

I have been looking at the DIR-655 but I am not sure if it will crap out like the DGL-4500.

This one. I have the E3000 which is one notch up, but we've used these for WAPs at work, and they're great. for $70 it's literally unbeatable.

Really good deal, this has probably stole me from the DIR-655.


Would you recommend the Receritified E3000 for $85?

I have a dir-655 and love it.

Though i did have an issue when i purchased it where to many connections from torrents were effecting it and it was enabling some securezone thing now and then.. i flashed with UK firmware to resolve it. Not sure if they still come with this or not... i have had mine for a couple years now.

I bought one about 2 months ago off of the Cisco website and I'm extremely happy with it. On a side note, I also bought a brand new Dlink wireless bridge off of Newegg and it came DOA. I'm not knocking Dlink as I've owned many of their products, but I'm just throwing that out there.
