Default Re: Router ....................

"Linksys" been there and done that, nothing more to say on that, if you want problems buy a Linksys all their new routers are junk they have a different company making them now. Netgear have known capacitors problems and belkins just plan cheap, don't last very long.

Despite the problems you had with the old one, I would find another one and just don't flash the frimware on it. "If it isn't broke no need to flash it" just use up to 1.15 you will be fine, notice they pulled the firmware, compare to other routers this one honest been my best one, been on for over a year with no reset with WAP and firewall rules, VPN and lot of other custom setting on. and roof wifi antenna with Hawking Hi-Gain HSB2 amplifier, using it on all 3 floors and outside, and this router still works great get 50mb down and 16mb up using custom firmware on comcast modem even on wireless. Have the modem on it own line, ran 3 lines from pole to digital signal amplifiers which goes to the in wall cable to building, did myseft since Comcast couldn't get it right, and try doing it messing with unnecessary splitter, becasuse they thought having 3 lines was a custom job even when I was going to paid them extra, so I just did it myseft.

The only thing I don't like about this router is you can't do custom firmware "i.e. DD-WRT" like you can on the Linksys.

If you have to try another router that dual band, try the Linksys WRT350N. gived mine away, but the guy who has it says the new firmware fixed alot of problems.

My brother was having issues with his router this past weekend as well (it was some old piece of junk). He picked up a Netgear WNR2000 and it seems like a very nice router.

Default Re: Router ....................

Hi.........
I want suggestions regarding router concept to implemented in my project.
Actually I am writing simulation algorithm on router which is connected between 10 seperate lans each assigned to specific unit of my campus.Simulation in the way I want to find the shortest path for routing the packets.
Well I want to know what algorithm is corrrect to route the packets in between the lans.My preffered algorithm is Dijkstras and warshall.But I read whole theory about this algorithms and am not able to suggest the proper algo.
Anyways I think that you guys will have thorough knowledge about this and I want the suggestion.
Stay connected.-

D-Link DIR-855 is an excellent router, dual-band (both 2.4 and 5Gz networks running at the same time), gigabit switch, excellent configuration, and rock-stable for me. Except one thing, enabled DNS relay, which made things really slow sometimtes. I had to switch to OpenDNS and no problems so far.

But I guess you do not want to buy from this company again, right?
