Buying new router - Budget $30-40ish

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My speeds get throttled sometimes when there is somebody else in my house using the internet whether it be my sister on her laptop or my father on his iphone and I've believed that the problem is associated with my current router which I've had for about the past two-three years now. I am new to the whole networking/router scene so I'm not entirely sure what I should be looking for, I would just like to replace my current router so that whenever there is more than one person in the house using the internet, the other person wouldn't be throttled so hard.

I'm in Canada so prices may differ if I'm given a product in the US.

So far, I was considering getting this: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=27_365&item_id=016021

D-Link DIR-615, Wireless N Router

Product Specifications:

Wi-Fi Standard: IEEE 802.11n (draft)
ISM Band: Yes
ISM Maximum Frequency: 2.40 GHz
Number of Antennas: 2
Wireless Transmission Speed: 37.50 MBps
Fast Ethernet Port: Yes
Number of Network (RJ-45) Ports: 4
Management Port: Yes
Number of Broadband (RJ-45) Ports: 1

Think it'll last me for a while?

Starting off what Router do you have now.
Do you do any torrents at all?
So in total I would assume you guys have 3-5 devices?
What internet speed do you have?

Alot better Router for $10 dollars more i'm returning my DIR-615 and getting this instead.

This router has won 21 awards so for your price point it will be perfect.

Heres a comprehensive review on the Router if that helps.
