OK, I've been using a linksys wrt54g for about a year now and CAN NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE. I flashed it with dd-wrt, but it just simply sucks.
If you don't want to read all my specifics just recommend to me a stable router that can torrent and network, SIMULTANEOUSLY for around $100. otherwise read below please.
I have moderate to minor experience with routers and networking, and can't take it anymore so i need recommendations on a GOOD router.
I am willing to spend around $100
heres what my router does
- disconnects me when transferring files wirelessly. its completely random of course, making the problem hard to pinpoint.
- disconnects when streaming videos from my desktop on my laptop (which was the final straw)
- completely destroys my internet connection when torrenting. sometimes pages load improperly, sometimes with missing images. it seems to create its own custom suck webpages.
what I need is a router that can handle this with ease, like most routers should.
Unless everyone here recommends a certian linksys router i WILL NOT BUY FROM THEM AGAIN. I've ahd two routers from them in 3 years and must say they are terrible. I mean they allow wireless and pretty ok web browsing, but the other features are gimped.
Before I go and buy another terrible router, I need some advice on what the best router is right now for 100 bucks.
