Specs: Macintosh
I am thinking of getting this 11n router


I spent an hour looking at 802.11n routers and I think the WD My Net N900 HD Dual-Band Router might be the best bet, since it was designed specifically to accelerate movies, video and gaming. I found this pr from them


They mention “The exclusive FasTrack Plus technology provides intelligent, real-time traffic prioritization for simultaneous HD and 3D media streaming and online gaming.”

So what is this FasTrack Plus really doing?

If this something that other routers do?

I was going to rip this to shreds but I can't say really.

A real hardware router could speed up some connections but I doubt that a home user would see any benefit unless they are in a high use environment. There is a limit to any router or switch.

This also suggests that it can determine types of data. That may allow the system to disregard trivial data and maybe send out data before the end of the packet is received.

I'd like to see some real world tests. I am sure if they say it there has been one test that this box works well on.

Hang up and live.
