I need a router to replace my technicolour router from telecom. It needs to have
1) better wifi signal through walls
2) settings to limit wifi/ethernet cable speeds or good prioritization for gaming as currently I am sharing my net and we are saturating the line and I get massive packetloss in games.

Prefer something cheaper but any ideas are welcome.

Thanks for the recommendations. Would like to spend less then 150 if possible. I only need maybe an extra 5m of reception on top the default telecom router.

I posted a D-Link DIR-865L in the Bargains and Deals section earlier.

That would likely fit the bill, and well below budget at $88 delivered.

It reviews pretty well too:
