    I think I like the Netgear N750 WNDR4300 the best. Get which ever you get the best deal on :toast:

    I have them both. The question is which one do I sell? The Netgear is newer and has a couple of features the Linksys doesn't and the USB drive attachment works better. But the 2.4 band is slower. And the 5.0 band is faster. Im going to use the Netgear for a couple of weeks and see if it is as solid as the Linsys.

    So I finally got around to doing dome testing. In a side by side comparison. Wired speeds were identical which I expected. Wireless the Linksys E4200 has better range with its six antennas on both the 2.4 and 5.0 GHz. However the Netgear wireless speeds were superior. 30% faster on the 5.0 Ghz and about 20% faster on the 2.4. The USB print server and drive NAS also worked better with the Netgear. So I sold the Linksys. I did love that router though. But its time had come.
