need a new wireless router that is powerfull handleing things.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
well as the title says i like too have a router that will handle stuff at the same time, Like downloading on the net and at the same time copying stuff over my network with no slow downs. Like if im copying from computer too computer hardwired on my home network stuff that i do on internet will be really slow and hardly loads a page.

Right now i have a dlink 524 wireless g router and it seems like its holding back my comcast internet also i just got 2weeks ago which is 30mbps down and goes up too 8mbps upload, Like if i have the comcast modem just connected i would always get 28 and up too 32mbps but with the dlink it will drop under 25mbps most of the time, And it seems like all the wireless things that connect too it is also slow which the max mbps my wireless n netbook gets is 15mbps.


So i was looking at this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-033-_-Product

And wondering how will that handle stuff? and it has open source support which i like too have.

I also like too keep the $$$ under 100$ pretty much 70$ and under if possible.

I highly recommend this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833122326

Its a bit pricey but is by far the best router that I have ever owned. It can handle anything that I can throw at it. I transfer large amounts of data between computers on the local network all the time, and it takes everything I can throw at it. Most of the time the limiting factor is the hard drive speeds. Its also the first router that I have owned that I don't feel the need to update the firmware, as it already has all the capability that I need.

That buffalo router you mentioned, is the same router I have with the same download/upload speed and handles network traffic like a champ.

So it doesn't slow down when using the internet and copying files over the home network at the same time?

My router really struggles when doing that and sometimes a unstable router also.

As long as you stay witn 802.11g, you will never get over 25mbps. 25mbps is the theoretical max throughput for G. (Please note connection rate and throughput are not the samething.) You will have to upgrade to N on the router and the laptop. By upgrading to N, you will bind two wireless channels together to get more banwidth and faster throughput. This is based on the fact you already stated you get faster speeds with a wired connection.

If you enable the movie engine and set up the router correctly it can handle the traffic you want it to handle, you can even prioritize the amount of traffic with the buffalo router. I have my router set up with a top priority for VoIP, Gaming packets and internet streaming packets. I currently use it heavily for transferring files between my main pc, and server with my htpc and laptops.

Edit:

Also, as long as all of your wired connections support gigabit, your speeds internally don't really affect your download speeds. In this scenario, downloading over WiFi would be the bottleneck.

Will it also slow down while connected too the either net port wired in the router? thats mainly another thing i was saying sense when i connected too comcast modem i mostly get 28mbps and up too 32mbps, But when i hook the router up it kinda gets unstable and goes down too sometimes 20mbps, Even tho the 524 says it does 10/100 threw the ports.

And for the wireless ya i figure it was caused do too the wireless g but max mbps im getting is 15mbps and no higher for some reason, But ya the router is like about 5years old and is glitchy.

And would like a beefy router that would handle network traffic like useing the net and at the same time copying files over my network with no slow downs at all..


So right now im trying too decide on the buffalo i linked or the NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS that was posted, They both seem good but hard too decide which one too get.. leaning more towards the buffalo tho sense it is 20$ cheaper and seems too have about the same kind of specs.

I was about to post an identical thread im about to purchase something now im in like the identical situation as gord. The max I get over wifi is 2.5MB/s which is not good for streaming or copying 1080p. So I've narrowed my search down to these two:
This switch to complement my wrt54g:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833127082

or router to replace my wrt54g:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-038-_-Product

and now i see the links here are pretty nice.....

I already have ordered additional cat6/5e Ethernet cables I just cant decide....

consider this switch:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833127082
you can just have your desktops wired to this switch and your notebooks on the other router.

You should go for an ethernet network its more secure and faster copying of files lesser down time. Wireless N is good enough for streaming 1080p though. If your streaming go for a wireless N set up if your copying video files you'll probably want to set up a ethernet network.
