Need good wireless gaming router - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I just had to setup a new network because I moved. Started off with a net gear wndr3700v3 with the hopes of running ddwrt but it wasn't supported and the router died after two days. Ended up switching to Linksys and got a refurb e4200v1 from Cisco's site for $79.99 with 90 day warranty. Loaded it up with dd-wrt v24 mega build and its been running rock solid and super fast for days now.

I have read up some reviews on all the routers posted here and to me it seems a bit like a crapshoot. I think I will read a bit more and pick one of the recommendations you guys made.

Thank you all for the responses, they have been very helpful in allowing me to focus my search!

Ive used the newer Asus router w/ 450,450 etc. Funny thing I had issues also, month or so later. the newest firmware solved that problem. Then I got one of those new Asus AP,repeater or wifi w/ Gigabit ethernet port and it looks really cool. Anyway same problem thing worked ok, but now I have 2 iterations of fw later and it actually gets awesome throughput and this is from my main PC down the hall from my router. Anyway I ended up going back to Linksys e4200 I had and don't know why I bothered. Ever since my wrt54g, years ago every Linksys product I have owned works flawless. Only issue was with an older wifi card that Linux hated. However even that old thing still gets 15mbs down. Also if you wanna future proof yourself grab the new Buffalo with a/c or Linksys but that will go over your budget unless you find a good deal.

So I spoke with my ISP (Comcast) and they will be sending me a Wireless Gateway that is basically a cable modem + router in one package. So I plan to try this out and potentially bypass my need for a router.

Thank you all for your help thumb.gif

Btw, has anyone used this Wireless Gateway before?

What sort of area do you live in? you may be in an area with a lot of interference. Personally, I just use powerline networking and I haven't had a disconnect since I switched.

I don't believe it's because of interference, because the disconnects never happen at first. Initially, the router functions perfectly, but then performance declines and the disconnects/hangs begin in about 4 months.

I've never looked into powerline networking before and will go ahead and research it. Thank you thumb.gif

The best wireless router I've found for stability of connection is the Billion BiPAC 7300N

My company uses remote/home workers, and the first thing we do is swap whatever router they have for one of these. It handles ADSL and Cable (EWAN) connections, so its compatible with all providers. I've found it faster than most other routers, with decent range, but the best thing is that from a support perspective these are so hassle free, even on real 'problem' lines. I used to use a WRT54G flashed with Tomato at home, but the Billion is much faster and more stable.
