    What is the star of your network? what sold you on it? are you happy with it?

    Router: TP-LINK TL-WR841N

    Why: Cheap, N300, Bandwidth control

    Verdict: Couldn't Be Happier...maybe if it was gigabit

    Netgear D6300
    Why: Dual Band(So it doesn't kill the landlines), New 802.11AC wifi standard, NBN fibre optic support if they ever decide to put it in my area.
    Verdict:There were originally some firmware issues which caused some issues with the wired, but that was updated. I noticed a download speed increase from about 1.2MB/s with my old router to 1.4MB/s with this one

    Why?

    Power and customization to my network structure.
    Yes the power consumption is higher but gaurenteed to beat any consumer grade router.

    I'm still rocking a WRT54G v3 :toast:
    [​IMG]

    Why? It was $7, works just fine, and I'm a big fan of Tomato. On the downsize, no gigabit and no Wireless N, but neither are deal-breakers. I also have a 16port and a 5port switch so I have more ports for crunchers/sales systems :toast:

    I did a review on the Mynet750. Nice router. The only complaint I had was that it looked like Tupperware

    TP-Link TL-WR1043ND v1.10, running Gargoyle 1.5.9
    Fantastic hardware for the price, with some mediocre-to-fine firmware... But that has been addressed, as I'm very impressed by Gargoyle (custom OpenWRT implementation). Rock solid, handling advanced QoS, quotas, thousands of concurrent connections, etc. without a hitch.
