    hi guys , im looking to buy a new Wired 4port router for home use, something cheap and reliable. price maybe around under 40 bucks.

    my current rounter giving disconnect problems when im playing games. for example when i leave my RF online mmorpg game on to do mining while im AFK, by the time i came back i got disconnect on both PC. and this happen alot at least more then 2 or 3 times a day dropping me off. Currently im using the D-Link DI 604 model H/W A2 version , which is like 3 years old since i bought.

    so do you guys know which brand and model i should purchase for my next 4 port wired router? dont need anything fansy, just something is fast and reliable wont disconnect me..

    Bump: It also depends how much max can you spend, Becuase if you spend a little more you could get a very nice quality router

    here in germany that router causes no disconnects, but on stock settings it disconnects u everytime u have no connection for 5 mins
    change it trough settings internet idle time to 0
    then there are no ones anymore

    Go with that, you know why because I have linksys, and never experinced any bad problems (except customer support). They run well!

    ohh you were refering to netgear setting.. i tho you meant by my Dlink DI 604 router .. no wonder i couldn't find it...

    but yea after hard decision i think im going for the netgear one since is cheaper and better review then the linksy..

    My D-Link is playing up a bit at the moment. Wireless keeps failing.

    Edit: It has been replaced with a more reliable Belkin
