Any suggestions on a decent wireless router.......?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im looking to get a decent wireless router within a price range of $80-$120. Ive been looking all over newegg and tigerdirect but i just dont know which one exactly to choose. I live in a 2 story house so i need it to have good range and i also want it to have a decent data rate with it at least 300Mps. So if anyone can give me any suggestions on a decent one to buy thats not insanely expensive please let me know. If any other info is needed ill post it.

wrt54g running dd-wrt is a inexpensive way to go. You can pick them up on ncix.com for ~60 CAD and they are the linux version.. I picked mine up on ebay for 25 bucks and flashed with linux and its been running for over a year now without a single problem. Better than my dlink was

newegg has the wrt 350N draft wireless router for $90. It has 10/100/1000 ports and wireless N for up to 300mbs. Also has a usb port for a network storage device along with a decent QoS.

if you have a little bit more money though i would look at the D-Link 655 draftN wireless router. You forgo the network storage usb port but get a much better QoS table. they go about $100 on newegg.

I personally have the D-Link 655 it has been rock solid and i do use the VPN passthrough on it. My buddy has the WRT350n and it has been solid for him since he uses the network storage. Either should fit your needs for range and up to 300mbs through the air. The DIR 655 lives on my first floor and my roommate who lives on the 3rd floor gets 300mbs with his wireless adapter.

Aawa, you did a really good job of naming off some nice routers, and explaining their benefits, but might i pose a question to you. Why on earth did you spend that much money? I hope it was for draftN.... because if you're only looking for good QOS and VPN passthrough a $25.00 used linksys flashed to DD-WRT is by FAR the best router in terms of traffic\\packet shaping, and routability.

when i purchased the dir 655 it was $25 less than the wrt350N.

I wanted draft N because my roommate is a gamer and he needed more than 54mbs through the air as well as strong signal taht didn't drop off. That is why i went with the DIR-655
