New router......New Modem as well?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We have had the same router for about 4-6 years now, you know the typical linksys one? And it just seems to be clunky and will drop connection at least 3-5 times a week, but it normally is fixed by a quick tap on the reset button.

Now i have been looking around and i think i have found a router that i like. This Seems to be a mid/high end router that will be nice to have. I know that AC is emerging out into the market but i dont need anything that fancy, just something i can configure my servers easily and have speed and strong connection.


Now it also got me thinking, could my modem be slowing my connection down? We have had the same modem for just about the same time as the router, just the typical one that comcast will install looks like this I am assuming that the modem doesnt do much, therefore has little impact on the system, but i thought i would get your guys input

If you're going to buy a new router, definitely get a new modem as well as yours is fairly dated. If you were to buy that router and keep your old modem, it'd sort of be the equivalent of purchasing a CAT6 cable and only having a CAT5 / E capable network. You'd have a really expensive cable transferring CAT 5 / E speeds tongue.gif

By the way, the router you posted is very good. Make sure if that's the one you choose, you update the firmware ASAP.
