what router brand do you use?
Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT
Neatgear atm. WNR2000 to be precise. Got it for €2 at a flea market and it's working flawlessly.
D-Link DGL-4500...one of the first 802.11n routers to come out. Had a Linksys WRT600N before that--it was crap (couldn't even handle Unreal Tournament III online) and got returned for refund.
I'm using an old D-Link DSL-2640R. Really need a decent router. I should be connecting at 7Mbit but I'm lucky if I get 5.
Stupid crappy router/ISP.
D-Link DGL-4300 Gamer Lounge... Nothing special, multiplayer games are constantly moving on multiple ports, and unable to set and make sure those ports are in use ... It serves no purpose
I currently have a NETGEAR WGR614.... 6 years of operations... has been great!
I used GameFuel to set port 80 to highest priority and torrent ports to minimum. Since 80 should use the least and torrents use most, it leaves plenty of room for all games to maneuver.
Had a netgear that cool looking black one with like 8 internal antennas? What a piece of trash disconnected all the time.. I then had a linksys 310N and then bricked it and got a linksys E2000 great routers. Dd-wrt runs like a dream on it.
Conceptronic C54BRS4A 1st Gen (Atheros chip).
Bought in 2007. Still kicks arse!
LAN performance could be better, though , but I can't complain about the wireless department...especially ever since I got a 5dBi antenna.
No multiple choices?
Guess I'll go with Linksys since that what I have the most of, but I have a few Buffalo and ASUS models too.
The one that was sent to me by my ISP: HUAWEI EchoLife HG532, if i wanted i can swap it out if but it's worked great for the home. It was the first router i had seen with a USB connection for sharing peripherals on your network.
Definitely Netgear here, thats the one ive had the least trouble with in reliability even after firmware updates
"Because in manshiun is so big i need several routers."
Now Running a Netgear WNR3500v2/U/L running DD-WRT v24-sp2 has worked flawlessly since I hooked it up about 2 years ago.
Before that it was Dlink DGL-4300 which was horrible couldn't even log into xbox live with two separate accounts and systems, with 1 connected NAT was always strict regardless of port forwarding and UPnP was broken.
Extremely disappointing for a "Gaming Router" especially considering it was $140.
Had 2 linksys routers previously both burnt up.
Wireless sometimes acts up though.
I haven't been able to get Wake on Lan working on it yet, but to be fair I haven't tried much.
fail that you only get one choice.
Netgear, two TP links, and a dynalink.
Got Verizon Fios; so, they gave me an Actiontec. Works, no complaints here.
D-Link DIR-855 works as good as i expect it to.
Cisco 1801 - great router! Wouldn't reccommend it for anyone who doesn't work in the industry as they are quite complex to configure for someone who has only worked inside GUI's. I have a Billion 7800N that I use as a repeater. It's a solid router and has some nice features. Would reccommend it to anyone who wants a great router with some enthusiast features.
A [linux] server in place of a router.
Ok, I am, in fact, serious. =]
Linksys WRT54G with Tomato
Using ASUS WL500GP with OpenWRT.
Will have to switch to some DGT VDSL anyway but I will keep the linux box for some fun.
