I recently brought a dlink DGL-4300 their gaming router that has Qos. while it's great for games and doing more than one thing at once over the network. the wireless is slow only 2.5Mbps with a dlink wireless 108AG adapter. with the lastest firmware 1.3. The gigabit is slower than my gigabit switch without jumbo frames enabled. The router doesn't support jumbo frames either. The worst part is it doesn't let any of my computers see the printer that's connected to the network via it's onboard 10/100 nic that uses DHCP and it configured for tcp/ip. my two other routers netgear rp614 and linksys BEFSR81 have no troubles with the printer. the funny thing about my printer is is has telnet access that I can also access the printer without software over the network. dlink tech support believes without even hearing the details that it's samsung's fault.

I'm very disappointed with this product minus the Qos. So I was wondering what 10/100 routers support Qos, wireless 802.11g, and have at least 4 ports and Qos?

Yes, I bought mine 6 months ago to replace a D-Link 624. I have 2 notebooks (802.11g), two wired PCs (100Mbps), and a VoIP router attached to it and everything is working flawlessly. I originally had some trouble with the router freezing when powering it back up after leaving it off the previous night, but updating the firmware seemed to take care of that. By the way, I updated to the 1.01.04 firmware and at that time, only the 1.01.03 was on Belkin's official site; I'll try to find the link if you decide to buy the Pre-N and can't locate the newer firmware.

The BroadbandReports.com Belkin forum (http://www.dslreports.com/forum/belkin) might be worth a look. And feel free to ask me any questions. :)

how well does the Qos work? what kind of speeds do you get copying cd size and dvd size files?

I had the DGL-4100 at one time and didn't like it either. Could use a print server on the darn thing. Was on with Dlink for awhile trying to see if it was hardware or not too. Sold it off for a wired Gigabit Switch and Firewall Router combo. Basically split the DGL-4100 back into two until Proper Gigabit Router is made for Print Server Sharing. Anyhow, it's wired but the following is a QOS router. Maybe you can put a Access point on it to connect or something.

Couldn't you just mod a $40 WRT54G and enable QoS?:

No, that's why it's disabled and I posted a screenshot of the settings...
