Good gaming router?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I am on the market with a 50-80$ range, and, my WRT54GS gets lag spikes in games with my current wifi card. Any suggestions?
I always reward suggestions.
Oh and I have an Edimax 7128g, I know reviews on Newegg say it gets lag spikes, BUT NOTE it is infact the router, as my friend with the same card has no problems. So...



I GAME ON A WIFI CARD SO THAT'S WHY I'M ASKING

Can you flash and overclock your WRT54GS with DD-WRT, or tomato?

try plugging the bad boy right in. It is always better to plug right into the router instead of going wifi. especially with gaming. you dont get the same speed or connectivity. Your friend might be getting a better connection due to a less obstructed path from router to PC or he might just have a faster more capable PC. In terms of a good router for that amount of money, I would go with anything D-Link. I've had nothing but good times with D-Links. individual results may vary.

Could the issue be firmware based?


Stevebaz: Yeah, but it's too spendy.
Generaltso294: I have to be on wifi.
Aaroman: I want that one, but it's just too spendy.

I use a D-Link DIR-615, it's basically the cheapest wireless-N router that D-Link makes, and I've had absolutely no problems with it.

Wait, they make a Gaming Router?

Wow, I guess people will try anything to market their products nowadays.

That's not what I was generally asking, I was asking what router would be enjoyable to game on.
