I've found that the main difference between consumer class routers and professional level routers is the garbage software loaded onto the consumer class routers. I have a pair of linksys 54wrt's with years of uptime, both running dd-wrt. It's hard to say that about that router with it's factory firmware.
Yeah, and they need to be somewhere air can circulate; unfortunately, they're often stuffed deep in a shelf and/or on top of a cable modem or some other heat-producing device. They generally pack their components as compactly as possible, barely capable of cooling themselves adequately with free convection; impair that at all and they cook themselves sooner or later.keltor wrote:Compressed air. Like 3/4th of all "router" issues I've seen have been absolutely filthy with dust.

I'd like to keep it in the $100 range if possible. I game a lot and the kids watch Netflix on it. Not sure if I have any B/G devices accessing it it but I will start looking at that.
I'm not even sure what I should be looking for right now as I haven't looked at routers in several years so any help would be appreciated.

I ran a file copy of our standard ripped-DVD test folder and measured write speed of 7.6 MB/s and 9.5 MB/s with FAT and NTFS-formatted drives, respectively. Reads came in at 13 MB/s for both formats. This performance is typical of embedded router file servers.
