  • ADSL/CABLE Gateways/routers

    ok, well i'm looking for a gateway/router, and these are the ones i'm looking at:

    Netgear RT314

    D-link DI804

    Accton AC-IG1004

    does anyone have any of these and/or have any comments about them?

    I know people using the D-link and also Linksys 4 pt. gateways with no problems.
    I have a 3Com Gateway, which I chose because it's also a print server - but 3Com has discontinued it

      the main thing i want to know about, will they create lag? (eg, when i had a p166 as the gateway, there was heaps of lag, packet loss AND choke :() i just don't want that :)

        Great site for home/SOHO broadband router reviews. they even rate network throughput in their reviews so you know if the router slows down your connection.

              next question:

              was it expensive compared to the netgear etc?

                just slightly off-topic:

                From my vast experiences with Netgear products, they are pretty darn good. I've used a 24port Netgear switch heavily, as well as using Netgear NICs in all my PC's..... haven't had the slightest problem with any of them...

                Go netgear.. :thumb:

                      I have the Linksys 4 port w/ built in Switch.. The thing is a beauty!

                      100mb file transfers between routed computers take mere seconds.

                      Setup is relatively easy too, with an IP address interface to be used with IE or Netscape.
