Looking for a new router - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Just looked up into that Netgear model suggested, it's USB speeds aren't too promising. (1,5 to 3,0MB/s ? Even the TP-Link one beats that two times..)

I just need that port to be as fast processing as possible, the whole house is going to connect on this 1 router, and use the HDD attached to it continously on multiple clients, so it should serve out as fast as possible.

Or is there any other device that would make it so i could connect a USB HDD to the router ? (apart from PC's itself and whatsoever.. )

Thanks,
Marky

Oh my god whatever you do don't get the Netgear WNDR3700. Everywhere I read about it, it was like god had summoned the deities of TCP/IP and had crapped out the most perfect router the world had ever created. Ever since I got it, it has been all nightmares. Goddamn thing disconnects all wireless connections every 5 freaking minutes and is only fixed with a hard reset. Apparently the DHCP server decides to screw it all and go off to its happy place and doesn't actually assign any usable IPs (common problem in the Netgear forums). I tried setting permanent IPs in the LAN settings, and although frequency of disconnections has now lowered, they are still there. I'm going to try flashing it to DD-WRT but I'm disappointed I spent a good deal of money on a router only to have to flash it to software that works, but has confirmed bugs and a lower range.

WZR-HP-G300NH may be a good buy.
Man I love this router. I have setup about maybe 30 or 40 of these in the past for clients (because we sell them) and I have not had one problem with any of them.

I setup one of these for a law firm, and put 2 file servers on it, a vpn server, and an exchange server on it, and the thing doesn't even blink at heavy traffic.

Umm, that sounds like bad firmware to me, try updating it, because, in my opinion, I have also set quite a few of these up and use one personally and have never had a problem with these either.

A very good router. I just set one up for my friend.

It's updated already :/ I'm not quite as knowledgeable as I should be about networking, but from what I comprehend from my research, the DNS and DHCP servers in the router work differently than how most routers work, in that the two don't always click together, so the router can't resolve hosts to IP addresses. The static IPs bypass the DHCP server entirely, so I do admit that it works much better now that I've done that, but I'm past the return period and I don't want to shell out another $150. I don't know how to explain that random hosts on my network sometimes get randomly disconnected. I'm tempted to blame faulty hardware by now.
