hi
needing your advice on modem router for my setup. i have 3 computers. 2 used for internet and personal use and one as HTPC. i usually transfer file(mainly media files) to HTPC so iam using RJ45 CAT6 cable direct from router to HTPC. currently i have dlink dsl 504G its working fine but i think it lacks of performance. i read a thread on this forum and lots of people advice on dynalink or modems with brodcom chipset. i was surprised belkin wasnt mentioned. just to let you know heat will be a issue because my room gets very hot at times.

Dynalink RTA1025w is a winner for a low cost all in one unit, nice and stable too. Mines been sitting on a desk for a few years and runs warm, doesnt overheat like the RTA1320.

No idea at all about belkin, only know about the dynalink, dlink (rubbish), linksys and some of the netgear range.

Linksys routers are good.
Linksys modems / modem+routers (all-in-one units) hold sync like a sieve holds sand.

+1 for an RTA1025W. Great solid units.

No idea about linksys modems, but as mentioned their routers with no built in modem especially running alternate firmware are solid as.
But yeah netgear seem to be pretty average, nothing amazing, but seem to work.

Again, why not the Dynalnik RTA1025w? If you wish i can link you to two long forum threads of praise and several reviews, but i dont think thats necessary.

They sync the fastest out of any modem, and they're one of the most stable.
They have 64MB of RAM, and a relatively fast processor running a Unix kernel. They also run pretty cold.

Without sounding like a salesman, the only place you can get them in NZ that I know of is by using a Telecom Business broadband plan. They're free when you subscribe to one of these plans.

Reason being, they're only sold to ISPs to co-brand as their own as opposed to 2Wire selling them to the public directly.
