Need a new router

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got Comcast 30Mb/s line from my old slow 1.5Mb/s line from Verizon.

I currently have a Linksys WRT54GL and I'm getting slower speeds connected to the router than connected to the modem its self. I've talked to a few network technicians and my boss, and they said the router is my bottleneck.

So with that being said, I would like a new wireless router with the following features, I figure my follow OCN friends could point me in the right direction.

Features:
B/G/N Wireless
True Gigabit support through the router
3 or more Ethernet ports
USB Support to add a External Hard Drive or a Printer
DD-WRT/Tomato/3rd Party Firmware
Port Forwarding

Price: Under 150$
Website: Newegg, CDW.

Thanks alot!

Something like an RT-N16 would do well.

Also you likely aren't going to find a consumer based router that supports 'true gigabit through the router' unless you're using something like Vyatta and build a PC as a router. The vast majority of routers will not have enough processing power to route a full gigabit between WAN and LAN (however, you will get full gigabit when staying on your LAN as you are staying in layer 2 land). Not a big deal since your speed package is only 30 mbps..

Amazing router for the value. They sell for about $65 at Walmart and support simultaneous dual band and have a USB port for NAS. No DD-WRT or gigabit though.

I would definitely get a router that can support DD-WRT: http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index

This allows you to use a lot more features, especially with encryption. Wish I could use it to add some features to my wpa2 + radius server setup.
