buying new router, which one? - Page 4

post #31 of 44
Thread Starter 
well, i'm more uncertain about which to buy than ever.

i'll probably stick with the Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router (WRT54G-CA) since it looks like the best available for the price i want to pay

haven't decided yet, but i'm seriously thinking of buying the D-Link 4-Port Wireless G+ Gaming Router (DGL-4300).

is it a good move? from what i'm getting, this is the best router available around

I have a moto wireless router and it is awsome. I got it for 25$ shipped on ebay NIB 2 years back and have had NO problems what-so-ever.

I was looking into getting that router, as I play online with my PS2 and somewhat game on my PC. IF/when my Moto craps out I will probably get that router. To top it off it has a gigabit switch built in unlike most others that only have 10/100.

Its alot faster. With a normal 100 Mbit network the maximum seeps you could get is 12.5 megabytes per second with a gigabit you get a maximum of 125, this allows you to transfer large files accross your network much faster, granted those speeds are optimal speeds but it is a very noticeable difference. And yes you'll get your moneys worth and much more...

When greater speeds are advertised, it isn't relevant to your internet connection. 54Mbps seems to be the slowest that cable/ADSL routers are available, and that is for local area transfers only. Having a 108 super-G router isn't going to change the speed of your 1.6 Mbps internet connection, just your local network transfer speeds.

I'd highly recommend the Linksys WRT54G for a affordable yet quality router. Linksys routers seem to last longer than D-Link routers and I've simply had more constant connection, meaning few interuptions or faults.

I've had no experience with routers closer to and over $100, but I'd guess most of them offer a few more networking features than the cheapers ones, and the usual faster LAN transfer speed. Regardless, the WRT54G will do you fine in my opinion.
