Suggestions for maximum WLAN/LAN throughput?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded to EPB's 1GB service and will need a new router to take full potential of it. I currently have a D-Link DIR-655, which according to this website the maximum throughput of my router is only around 370mbps. My network isn't extensive or anything. I have 2 PC's wired and 2-4 devices that connect wirelessly throughout the day. I have a wireless extender upstairs as well for these devices. My main concern is the wired PC's connection.

I was looking at this router as a potential upgrade, but I'm really not sure about the true pros/cons. It seems to have good reviews, but outside of serving as a hub, I really do not know anything about routers or networks in general.

Just looking for some suggestions. Thanks.

Most of the N900 or AC class ones are pretty comparable.

You could probably squeeze more out of it if you made a router PC with something like Untangle or similar, although you'd still have to buy a separate access point.

I'd probably go with something like a RT-AC66U for some wifi expandability as you're already somewhat in that price range.
