Buying a New Router - Need Help! - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Thread Starter 
Why would I stick with it if it's not helping me reach my speed?

I just want to know if getting the new ASUS router would help me get a faster internet speed?

You dont need anything fancy and yes upgrading from that model will help a lot. Asus isnt going to be better just cause its asus...... And read the reviews that model you want has a wacky qos setup... atleast thats wht alot of the comments say.

I'd suggest calling isp and asking for an upgraded modem as well comcast which uses same modems replaced mine. I use to have that grey one in the pic they told me it gets bogged down a lot to getting only one signal. The new one they gave me get 4 and switches if one signal bogs down. The replacement for me was free and my speeds went from 8mps down .8mps up. To 36mps down and 7mps up. Hope this helps sorry i dont remember all the technical terms for the modems types and signals.

I'll go one day to Time Warner and ask for a upgrade.

But as far as Router goes, can anyone suggest a good one that is around the $80 price range?

Seems the ASUS one I posted isn't all that good.

As I said, I use the internet via ethernet for my computer, Dad uses it for his computer, I have a laptop which uses internet wirelessly and a xBox 360.

As far as routers go i have both of these they are both great, i prefer the D-link. I currently use the D-link for everything with the upgraded modem i mentioned earlier and all 4 of my computers are running above 20mbps (i pay for up to 25mbps) and as i said earlier my main desktop runs at 36mbps.

P.S.
Sorry about the bad grammar and punctuation on the last post i made, it was posted on the way to dinner. Now I'm to lazy to edit it.

ASUS RT-N16 is a very good router, provided you flash it with dd-wrt or TomatoUSB.

The WNDR3700 is probably your best bet.
It future-proofs with IPv6, has Readyshare DLNA, has Gigabit, Dual Band 2.4 and 5GHZ, with a very powerful processor.
You won't be disappointed.

It has a price tag of under $100 dollars in the US so it should probably fit your budget.
