Hi so my modem/router (D-link DSL-504T Gen II) has finally failed on me after a good 8 years of using it. So I'm looking for a good modem to use for p2p and gaming. Currently I have a Linksys WRT350N router at home which we use for wireless, is there a modem you guys could recommend me getting to setup with my wireless at home for p2p and gaming?




Was looking at the Netcomm NB304 and TP-link TD-8840T, would you guys recommend these 2 products or any other ones?

What I'd recommend depends on how you were using the D-Link, can you answer the below:

Q: How was your D-link DSL-504T connected to the Linksys WRT350N?

1: Don't know / Just plugged them in together (from D-Link LAN to Linksys WAN) / Double NAT 
2: Half bridge (IP Extension) setup in the D-Link 
3: WAN Bypass ie: from D-Link LAN to Linksys LAN port (instead of Linksys WAN port), DHCP server disabled in Linksys etc
