Help me find a router for my gaming server

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok, I am going to be setting up a gaming server in my home on Monday.

I really don't think that my current router (DI-624) will have enough throughput.

I need a router that can have a sustained throughput of at least 40Mbp/s.

I would really like to keep it under $100, it doesn't have to have wireless but it would be a plus if it had wireless G. (the server will be hooked up directly)

Stupid question but how the hell can you tell if a router can do 20Mbps up and down at the same time?

I'm not completely sure, If the throughput is like 800mps I figure that it wouldn't matter... Now that I think of it throughput is probably up/down combined.

ex. (on the bottom rite of the picture)

Just about any gigabit switch will but your going to be limited by peoples network cards if they only have 100Mbit max they will transfer is 10MB.

So if one of the network cards on one of the pc's is 100mbit max, it will limit the router to 10mb?

I am not worried about trying to transfer files between pc's in my home network. I need a high throughput router for my Gaming server, so it needs to be high from Wan to Lan/Lan to Wan.. if that makes sense..


*Also, how does the Verizon Fios router that they give you do with that kind of thing? Are there any decent options like port forwarding on it?

I like that one a lot, but that is more than the $100 maximum that I stated in my first post.
